Ryan said he’d give me a gold star. So, for those of you who got your booties out of bed and to the gym this morning, here you go:
See, wasn’t it totally worth it?
When I got to the gym, I was really in the mood for BodyPump since it was early and I didn’t feel like putting myself through a quality workout. Unfortunately the instructor overslept, so the class never happened.
Luckily, after joking around with other gym-goers, I felt much more awake and managed to get a decent workout.
Today I did 25 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical before completing a total-body weights routine that looked like this:
(3 sets of 15 reps of each)
- Leg extensions
- Leg press
- Hamstring curls on exercise ball
- Shoulder raises
- Bicep curls
- Tricep dips
I hauled my booty home to take Sadie on a 20 minute walk before showering and heading off to my orthodontist’s office for an early morning Invisalign appointment.
I technically only have three aligners remaining. I wear each Invisalign aligner for two weeks, but we’re extending my time with my current aligner to make sure my teeth aren’t pushed too quickly. Slow and steady wins the race (Just ask the tortoise)!
Breakfast today was a blended success!
I used my immersion blender to blend 1/4 cup of cottage cheese and 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin with a little bit of sweetener, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon to make a pumpkiny dip for a toasted waffle.
The combination was yum-may!
Even though I look like death in the following pictures, I wanted to share some action photos with you from Saturday’s 10k race that a friend took!
Sadie can’t be the only one with action photos on this blog!
Annnnd if you’re like me and severely neglect blogs over the weekend, here are some weekend highlights for ya:
