Boy, it’s a good thing I decided to get my butt movin’ today…there were some yummy treats consumed this afternoon and evening!
I was actually considering taking today off from exercise. I just wasn’t in the mood for anything in particular, until I happened to be scrolling through Kristin’s blog and found her amazing 5-4-3-2-1 Treadmill Routine.
The 55-minute routine covers (3) sets of 5 minutes @ 6.0mph, 4 minutes @ 6.5, 3 minutes @ 7.0, 2 minutes @ 7.5 and 1 minute at 8.0. When all was said and done, I had completed 5.6 miles, which is actually the farthest I’ve ever attempted to run. Who knew!?! Thanks so much for the idea, Kristin!
See, still healthy, right?
Shortly after, I headed out with Jay and my parents to take care of some things this afternoon. While we were out, my dad announced “How about a stop for a cone at the Snowman?”
Ummm…is that even a questions?? Hellllz YES!
I ordered an Orange & Vanilla Twist with massive amounts of rainbow sprinkles. For it being my first trip of the season to The Snowman, it definitely did not disappoint.
Since we had our ice cream around 4:30 this afternoon, Jay and I weren’t really ready for dinner until a little after 7. Neither of us wanted to cook. He was craving wings, I was craving pizza. So what do we do? We order take-out from The Redfront!
Seriously, some of the best pizza, ever. We ordered a small COB (cheese on bottom), Jay got his wings, and we both ordered a side salad in an attempt to add some extra veggies…
Clearly, we loaded up on veggies with these bad boys. Is that not a pathetic looking “salad” or what?
And to top it all off, they dared to load up with tons of olives. Sheesh!
Hey, it’s a good thing their pizza is pretty, ummm, freakin’ phenomenal.
Everything about their pizza just rocks. The crust is light and chewy, the sauce is slightly sweet, and the cheese is, well…
And you know what?
I enjoyed every last bite of all my goodies today with no regret, because I truly do believe that sometimes, it’s “healthy to be unhealthy.” No need to fret about making sure every single meal is loaded with veggies. What fun is that?
I think you all can see that I try to make smart and healthy food decisions probably 80% of the time. The other 20% is usually something to satisfy my sweet tooth, or a nice, cheesy take-out pizza. I think that’s what maintaining a healthy lifestyle is all about…balance!
Now, we’ve both got our cozies on and are ready to sit down and watch a movie. We picked out two from Redbox (they’re currently having a “Buy 2, get a coupon code for another one FREE” deal) – The Fighter and How Do You Know?
I want to see both, but I’m thinking a romantic comedy is in order for this evening…
Hope everyone’s having a fabulous weekend so far!
