Ryan and I allowed our breakfasts to digest for a few hours (aka we acted like bums in our hotel room) before driving to the gym… the real gym, not the hotel’s fitness facility. Woo!
We hopped on side-by-side ellipticals to begin our workouts with 20 minutes of cardio before heading into the weight room to complete our respective workouts.
I did a weights workout very similar to Thursday’s routine, only I cut out three exercises or so but didn’t neglect ab work this time. Give and take.
100 Flavor Coke Machine
After the gym, Ryan had big plans in store for us for lunch.
Last week he joined a coworker for lunch at Firehouse Subs. When he told be about their lunch, he didn’t say one word about his sandwich, but went on and on about their awesome Coke machine. Apparently it had a bunch of different “base” sodas for you to choose from before selecting what flavor you wanted.
One hundred different flavor combinations are available!
Neither Ryan nor I are big soda drinkers, but we do enjoy the occasional soda every once in a while.
I was quite exited to experiment with the machine!
I filled my cup with a bit of vanilla Sprite Zero, which tasted a lot like cream soda, before adding a splash of strawberry Sprite at the end for a little more pizazz.
I want to go back and try peach Sprite sometime!
As we waited for our subs, we got a kick out of watching people at the 100 flavor Coke machine. They were like kids in a candy store! It’s very exciting stuff.
For lunch we each ordered Firehouse Hero subs with no mayo.
The sub included ham, turkey and roast beef, veggies, stone ground mustard and melted provolone cheese.
I love the mustard they use on these subs. It adds so much flavor and a little bit of a kick.
When we arrived back at the hotel, we put on our swimsuits and headed out to the pool to read our respective books and enjoy some pool playtime.
I just started reading The Glass Castle.
I’m about 80 pages into the book and am not feelin’ it yet.
It’s a memoir and I sometimes struggle with memoirs because I like my books to have a real plot, some intrigue and suspense. Memoirs can sometimes fail to capture my interest because they’re just story after story about someone’s life. I’m going to keep plugging away because I’ve heard only great things about this book, but I sure hope it picks up soon.
Our time at the pool seemed to be split into 20 minute increments of reading and playtime. Whenever we’d be too hot to stand it anymore, we’d jump in the pool to play around.
I entertained Ryan with some of my awesome pool characters.
The dead man…
And the president!
Whenever I’d flip my hair back like that when I was little I felt like looked like some of our first presidents, wearing those fancy white-haired wigs.
Now we’re back in the room where we’ll be hangin’ for a bit before heading to Orlando this evening for a really fun event!
More to come!
