A little bit of everything . . .


Today, I have a furlough day.  It means I am not allowed to work at all.  In fact, we will get in trouble if we make phone calls, send emails, etc.  Our office building is locked down for the day. 

I put the kids on the bus.  Took the toddler to daycare.  Came home and put on my workout gear.  I went back and forth on whether I should work out at home or go to the gym.  I hopped on the treadmill and did a 25 minute jog.  I walked 5 minutes as a warm up and cool down.  I jogged for 20 minutes straight on 4.5.  But the last minute, I did a sprint at 6.0 mph while listening to Black Eyed Peas.  I felt strong.  I am so happy to be back to fitness.  I didn't realize how much I missed it until today.

I got off the treadmill to check on the time for my son's concert.  Holy Crap!  It was going to go on in 10 minutes.  I put on a fleece, grabbed the camera and car keys, and jetted to his school.  I came back home after the concert and made a green monster with spinach, pumpkin, banana, almond milk, peanut butter, and honey.  Drank it while I surfed the net.  Still dressed in my workout gear. 

I went upstairs and did 31 minutes of Yoga.  Shiva Rea's Earth workout with a cooldown was great.  I missed Yoga too.  So, so much.  My arms are going to feel it tomorrow.  I have a love/hate relationship with Chaturanga, but it makes me feel strong. 

I just finished lunch.  Leftovers were combined: ground beef from last night's tacos; chopped romaine lettuce; shaved carrots; and whole wheat pasta from a few days ago.  I combined it all and warmed it up in the micro.  Yum!

Now, once Bulging Brides finishes on TV, I am grabbing my golf clubs and heading to the driving range to practice.  I have made an effort to teach the kids to golf, but haven't used my clubs in a long time.  The last time I played golf (horribly) was for my 10th wedding anniversary last year. 

I am feeling great with my eating and fitness.  If I have time when I get back, I will go for a bike ride; if this cloudy day doesn't end up in a big rain storm. 

Tomorrow, Scale Steppin' Saturday.  I will get on the scale and photograph my results for all the world to see.  It is easy to say the number, but putting the picture for all to see is scary.

If you had a full day to exercise and be active what workout or activity would you choose?

  1. It's pretty awesome to have a whole day to focus on you. I am glad you hopped on the treadmill and loved it (I have yet to find my passion for running!) Also, I am thinking I must try some yoga. :)

    If I had a whole day? . . . I'd bike, and bike, and never stop!


    Have a great weekend (good luck with golfing! I am not awesome at that either!)
