Okay, who watched it???
Seeing as how I’m the girl who dragged the recap of her own wedding into eleven separate wedding recap posts, you better believe I tuned in!
I watched the royal wedding at the gym this morning, along with pretty much everyone else. I laughed when I looked around the cardio area and saw every single person’s television tuned into the ceremony… Well, everyone except Ryan. Don’t worry though because I made sure to give him the play-by-play as we ran on side by side treadmills, which I know he appreciated.
Ryan and I both had to laugh when we arrived at the gym this morning because the woman who always scans our gym cards is British and when I asked her if she was excited about the royal wedding, she vehemently said, “Nah! It’ll never last! She’s a commoner!”
I’ve read in numerous articles that Price William choosing to marry a “commoner” is a big deal, but I guess that as an American I didn’t realize that it was that big of a deal. Ryan and I laughed with the woman at the front desk as she explained this to us. She’s so sassy and had quite a lot to say!
I really enjoyed watching the royal wedding and it truly was gorgeous, but I also felt like it was so impersonal. I loved taking the time with Ryan to write our own ceremony and make the day about us and our commitment to each other. The royal wedding seemed like too much of a formality and didn’t focus enough on the relationship between William and Kate for my liking.
Of course I must add that the whole affair was beyond stunning and very classy! Can you even imagine walking down that aisle? I would’ve puked if I were Kate from being so nervous!
My workout was quite uneventful since I basically crafted it around the royal wedding.
In the end my workout looked like this:
- 15 min. run
- 10 min. incline walk
- 30 min. elliptical
I ran during the pre-wedding coverage so I wasn’t pounding away on the treadmill during critical times like the exchange of vows. Priorities!
After the gym, a 40-minute walk with Ryan and Sadie and a shower, it was breakfast time!
In today’s smoothie:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp. peanut butter
- 1 scoop Gold Standard chocolate casein protein powder
- 1 1/2 c. milk
- 2 pinches xanthan gum
- 1 handful fresh spinach
It was a good one! Chocolaty and peanut buttery. Great combo!
Time to work. YAY for FRIDAY!!!
