At around lunchtime today, I took a break from work for and headed to the gym.
I really, really wasn’t in the mood to workout and felt kind of blah, but I knew I’d feel 10 times better if I managed to work up a sweat. Plus, three days away from the gym meant I’d feel that much better if I fit a little exercise into my day.
I began my time at the gym with 20 minutes on the elliptical before I headed into the weight room to complete the first workout from phase three of Tina’s Best Body Boot Camp. Today’s workout was burpee-tastic and incorporated lots of burpees into a total body workout. (There were more burpees in this workout than my burpee sandwich workout. It was intense!)
I felt so much more energetic after my workout. Woo!
Once my workout was done, I took my sweaty self to the grocery store to buy some of the food that Ryan and I need to make our contributions to my mother-in-law’s Thanksgiving brunch on Thursday. While shopping, I was hit with the incredible smell of rotisserie chicken and bought one on impulse, figuring I could incorporate into today’s lunch and dinner.
When I arrived home, I fixed myself a plate of chicken, served with carrots, kettle corn and a pear.
Question of the Afternoon
- What special dish are you making for Thanksgiving this year? If you’re not making anything, what are you looking forward to eating?
