So here I was preparing for a full day of cold, wet, and dreary weather…
…but apparently I don’t need to worry about THAT anymore? Somehow the rain made its way out much quicker than I had anticipated, so that makes me quite a happy camper. Now if it would just warm back up again…we’re getting so close!
Since my workout schedule got a little discombobulated last week, things are a little bit off from my schedule right now for this week. Today typically would have been a full body circuit workout day, but since my body is still hating me recovering from yesterday’s circuit, I decided to switch things up and make today a cardio day.
Tina provided us with a really great template for a 40 minute interval routine in our bootcamp program, so using her guidance, I ended up putting together the following run/walk treadmill workout:
If my memory serves me correctly, I’m pretty sure that this workout covered just about 3.75 miles, and it is actually quite similar to the workout I completed last Wednesday.
I followed this up with a solid 15 minutes of stretching and foam rolling before calling it a day…even though I think I’m going to have to get the foam roller out again tonight. Yowsahs.
After finishing up a quick conference call this afternoon, I headed out to the kitchen to make some lunch. As has been the case for the past couple of weeks, my initial reaction was to go for something with either carbs or peanut butter; however, I’ve decided to make an attempt to get in some more veggies and cut back slightly on the carbs at lunch this week.
So far, so good.
Today’s salad was filled to the brim with romaine, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, red peppers, baby carrots, dried cranberries, feta cheese, and the rest of my shredded chicken leftovers from Friday.
You know, it really is quite convenient having shredded chicken in the fridge to just grab and use immediately. I think I need to start keeping this sort of stuff on hand more often.
I needed a little something sweet after my salad, so I grabbed a Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie.
Yeah, yeah…I know I said less carbs at lunch, but these so totally don’t count. I mean, they’re mostly bananas anyway.
I’m also now sipping on a mug of this green tea, which is pretty much the only green tea that I actually enjoy drinking.
As a side note, I updated the Workout Page a bit this morning with some of the newer exercise routines that I’ve recently posted, as well as a brand new drop-down menu with everything broken down into categories.
Hopefully, this will you give you guys easier access to the things you’re trying to find!
Time to head back to work…hope everyone’s Monday is off to a great start.
