I hope all is well in your neck of the woods this afternoon.
My day began with work, but I had a longer-than-usual lunch break which was fabulous. I didn’t feel like hanging out at the gym for my workout, so I completed a workout outside and at home with Sadie and my computer. First up was a 25-minute jog around the neighborhood with my favorite furry running buddy.
Once we made it back to the house, I flipped open my laptop and searched YouTube for some fitness inspiration. I looked for upper body workout videos and completed the following short workout videos with dumbbells I had on hand.
It was a fun way to shake up my usual routine and try something new. Completing two short new-to-me workout videos made the time fly by!
After my workout, I took a quick shower and headed out the door with Sadie to meet up with my friend Amanda and her two kids for a 30-minute walk at a local park.
Sadie enjoyed the extra exercise and I had fun chatting with my friend before it was time to work again.
Before my walk, I inhaled another one of my microwaveable quesadillas (cheese + tortilla microwaved for 40 seconds) and made myself a more satisfying lunch once I arrived back at the house to drop Sadie off before work.
For lunch, I felt inspired by Caitlin’s brown rice and egg scramble, so I recreated it at home.
My version wasn’t quite as healthy because I used fried rice that we had leftover from last night’s Chinese takeout dinner, but it was quite delicious!
Off to work again! It will likely be a late night at work today, but I’m hoping it will be a fun one, too!
Question of the Afternoon
- Do you ever use YouTube videos to complete workouts at home? Any favorites? (I think this may be a fun blog post topic, so I’d love to hear your recommendations!)
