This used to happen to me a lot more often when I hit the gym after work, but at 5:30 a.m., the weights or machines I want to use are usually available.
Today that simply wasn’t the case. Apparently it was Squat Rack Wednesday at the gym this morning because for the entire time I was at the gym, the two squat racks were occupied.
Ryan always says that when the weights or machines he wants to use are occupied, he takes it as a challenge to do a new exercise or think outside of the box. I look at it as a fantastic opportunity to walk by the weights several times, sighing in annoyance so they’ll stop hogging the machine and let me do my thing.
I’m just kidding, I promise!
Links to descriptions of some of the moves:
It was one of the best leg workouts I’ve had in quite some time.
When Ryan and I arrived home from the gym, we ate a quick breakfast before taking Sadie on a walk around the neighborhood.
I topped two toasted Van’s waffles with muenster cheese, raspberry jelly and two fried eggs.
For some reason the cheese tasted extra delicious this morning. Mmm!
