I am so glad you guys are a fan of Blog Talk Tuesdays! I’m already excited for the next installment!
Truth be told, I was so anxious to write this morning’s post that I postponed my workout until around 10:30 a.m. Yes, I’m the kind of blogger who lies in bed at night thinking about upcoming blog posts. I’m sick.
When the alarm went off this morning, Ryan decided to take a day off from the gym and I wanted to get on my computer to start working on my Blog Talk Tuesdays post, so we both headed to breakfast together instead of hittin’ the gym right away.
Today I enjoyed a scrambled egg sandwich, served on two pieces of toasted whole wheat bread.
The eggs were prepared with veggies, lots of cheddar cheese and hash browns.
I ate all the goodies out of the eggs before making my sandwich which is why you can’t see them in the picture. I always eat all the best bites first. This drives Ryan crazy because he saves the best bites for last. This can be a problem if we’re sharing a dish.
I also enjoyed a cup of hot pomegranate green tea and about half of a bowl of Froot Loops.
This breakfast did a great job of keeping me full for hours! Either that or I was so involved in writing up this morning’s blog post that I didn’t think about food every 2.5 seconds like I normally do.
From 7: 15 until 10:30 a.m. I did the whole blog and email thang before telling myself I had to go the the gym. I knew that if noon rolled around and I hadn’t worked out just yet, all hopes of me actually making it to the gym would go out the window.
So workout I did!
I kicked my butt today. Seriously. My chest was pounding and my face looked like a cherry when I was done.
To start, I loosely followed a workout I tore out of Fitness magazine months ago.
My rendition, which I’ll call the Delayed Workout of Death, looked like this:
Don’t let the lower speeds of this workout fool you… It’s killer! Honestly this workout is one of the hardest treadmill workouts I’ve ever posted on the blog. If you try it, you’ve been warned!
After my workout, I headed back to our hotel room, didn’t shower (yet!) and sat down to crank out a couple of things on the computer before assembling myself a yummy lunch with the random food we have on hand in the hotel fridge and freezer.
Lunch included an Amy’s tofu scramble pocket sandwich that was really, really good! I loved the doughy bread and the tofu scramble was full of veggies and flavor.
Not quite as voluminous as it looks on the box, huh? At least it was tasty!
I also ate a cup of strawberry banana Greek yogurt and some string cheese for a little extra protein.
And now I’m going to scan a handful of websites to see if any new houses for rent have been posted. I’m tellin’ ya, there’s not much to choose from here, but we’re hopeful!
The house we really liked with the pool came down $100 a month in rent (which is obviously great!), but we’d be in charge of lawn care and since the house is located on three acres, we’re a little apprehensive about that. We can’t live in this hotel forever, so I hope something workouts out soon!
