I usually like talking about my workouts as I do them. I’m not a big fan of “workout dump” blog posts, but I haven’t been talking about mine this week and I really want to, so you’re gonna get one. 🙂
I’ll try, I’ll try. So hard to keep her happy.
Monday: Chest and ab workout with Linda. We did torturous things like push-ups on an ab ball and more push-ups with a pike. My chest is still sore today.
Tuesday Morning: Tempo run before work. I was scheduled to do a speed run, but I wasn’t sure my shin was feeling well enough after the 18 miles on Saturday to go all out. I’m glad I switched it up because my tempo run was awesome. So awesome that I added a mile to it.
Total miles: 6 in 57 minutes.
Oh, and you know what else happened on that run?
Tuesday Night: Martial arts cardio class. I can’t even tell you what we did in class, but my hamstrings are still extremely sore today. And the instructor, Sheila, has no sympathy.
Wednesday: Another workout with Linda. This one had 4 half-mile runs with sets of squats holding a 40lb bag (holy not easy) and bicycles and sets of pull-ups and good mornings in between.
During the first 30 seconds of our first run, hubs rolled his ankle and was down for the count. Now he has a golf ball sized bump on his ankle and he can barely walk, so he’s using a broken broom stick as a cane until a friend brings in a crutch for him to borrow. 🙁
Tonight is my speed workout on the treadmill. I’m hoping it goes as well as Tuesday. 🙂
Before I get to today’s three things, check out more of the free wardrobe I inherited from my newly skinny best friend.
What can I say? The girl likes patterns. You know, friends getting skinnier is the best. You get new clothes at no cost. Well, except the cost of your best friend looking hotter than you.
Today’s three things are my recent food discoveries:
I’ve always been looking for a marshmallow that takes 6 bites to eat. Now I’ve found it! I don’t know where the need for this ever arose, but I’m glad it did.
Frosted Animal Crackers
By the way, Frosted Animal Crackers are not the same as Iced Animal Crackers.
For a long time, I thought frosted and iced animal crackers were the same thing. I never understood why one had higher calories and fat, so I just picked the lower one. Well, they are not the same my friends.
They are SO good. Just when I’m getting over my Sunflower Seed Butter addiction, these frosted beauties reared their ugly head. Perfect timing too, because I was looking to gain some more weight. Ugh.
Extra Dessert Delights Sugarfree Gum
(Apple Pie Flavor)
After you’ve gained 10lbs from eating too many gigantic marshmallows and frosted animal crackers, you might need some of this instead of actual dessert.
I’m pretty sure I bitched in a blog post recently that there is no way a gum can substitute for a dessert when you want something sweet. Well, I might have to take that back. MY LORD this gum tastes just like apple pie. My only problem is that I want to chew it while eating an actual slice of apple pie. You know, for comparison purposes.
