And ended like this…
The floor is Sadie’s realm. Enter at your own risk! 😉
Merri showed me how to use the foam roller to work out kinks all over my body. We rolled away during the commercials of The Bachelorette, which we started watching 30 minutes late since our cable went out! I missed Roberto’s hometown date. 🙁 (I did see Chris L.’s though and oh-my-gosh how adorable is his dad???)
We also enjoyed a super yummy and super easy dessert that Merri brought with her. She made lemon sorbet vanilla wafer sandwiches by spreading lemon sorbet between two vanilla wafer cookies to make a mini ice cream sandwich. Perfect for a summer night!
I woke up bright and early this morning feeling a little down because Tuesday is typically a running day for me in my half marathon training plan. Since the ol’ heel is healing (seriously that pun will never get old), I opted for 30 minutes of cross training (15 minutes on the stair master, 15 minutes on the elliptical) before taking a yoga class.
I haven’t taken a yoga class in almost a month (thank you Exercise Log for bringing this to my attention).
I really enjoyed the class not only for the great stretch, but for a couple of things the teacher said that really struck a cord with me:
- Every day you decide to work out you make a decision to benefit your health. This is no small feat. Be proud of yourself for making your health and well-being a priority.
- If you keep doing what you’ve been doing, you’re going to keep looking how you’ve been looking.
Of course you can take the last statement in a positive or negative light, depending on whether or not you’re happy with the appearance of your body.
If you like what you see in the mirror, keep on keepin’ on. On the other hand, if you want to see changes in your body, you may need to reevaluate what you’ve been doing in the gym or what you’ve been eating. The statement seemed almost like a toned-down form of tough love.
Take it or leave it, I just thought it was thought-provoking and wanted to share. 😀
Breakfast was enjoyed in the backyard with this beast:
Sadie was feeling extra chipper this morning, so I enjoyed my yogurt bowl out back while playing fetch with the monster.
My breakfast came together quickly thanks to some fresh berries I had on hand.
Summer berries on sale = Heaven.
Question of the Morning
How often do you change up your workout routine?
