Hiya! Just checking in before my Friday nap… it’s a very important thing to have, if you haven’t tried it already.
Today was beautiful. It was hot (I really need shorts!) and the birds were chirping, and I ended up falling asleep outside! So, the responsible senior that I am, I shlepped all my bags of books to the library where I would be less likely to doze (although it’s been done many, many a time).
I was having a bit of writer’s block so I broke for lunch on the early side. I brought a big salad with romaine, a small diced apple, peas, tomatoes, black beans, leftover Chipotle guacamole, and a little crumbled feta.
Also brought a SFOSPNF yogurt (got that?) and some Annie’s Lite Honey Mustard vinaigrette.
I went to the gym a little later for a quick workout. I ended up staying longer than I’d planned (which was initially, um, 20 minutes) but when the telly is on, I’m powerless…
I did 10 minutes on the Stairmaster, and 25 minutes on the elliptical. Then I did some abs, stretched, and gave my legs a good roll-out. (I forgot to turn my HRM off when I started stretching, so the stats are a little off.)
Total time: 54:26 minutes
Maximum heart rate: 160 (80%)
Average heart rate: 130 (65%)
Calories burned: 370
I’ve gone to the gym six days in a row and am probably due for a rest day soon… there might be some light yoga in store for tomorrow.
I left a Chocolate Chip Z bar in the car while I worked out so it would be warm and gooey when I got out. Scrumptious! Don’t mind my pasty legs… hopefully they’ll be a little less so in the near future, but I don’t tan well so I’m not making any promises.
To brighten an already sunny day, I got this package in the mail today:
When I mentioned that I wasn’t able to find Flat-Out Bread around here, Ola from Flat-Out was kind enough to offer me a few samples. I had no idea she would be so generous! There are two sizes and four flavors to try… I can’t wait to test ’em out! Thank you so much, Flat-Out!
Betty Ford was pretty interested in the bread, too!
Alright kids, it’s that time. Hope you’re having a fantastic Friday!
