Soooo, do you want to know what the “exciting” thing was that I had going on this morning? Alright, well, the actual thing itself may not be that exciting, but the reason behind it is…
I am now CPR/AED certified and I can officially save your life. WOOOP!
I’d been searching around for the past couple of weeks to find a local course that I could take that wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. Granted, the course I took through the American Red Cross was still $70.00 (which is way more than I was expecting??) but still better than the $100.00 that I initially thought it was going to cost.
Anyways, the reason this is so exciting is because it also means that I am one step closer to taking to getting my personal training certification! I am definitely well on my way to taking my exam before the end of the year, and I may or may not have gone ahead and scheduled my exam today.
After my class was over, I quickly stopped to grab some lunch at Subway before heading to work. I picked up a 6-inch turkey on honey oat (my favorite bread ever from there) and loaded up with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, pickles and sweet onion sauce.
Ummm, okay…since when did Subway get so expensive??
To get a 6-inch sub, a bag of chips (sour cream & onion Baked Lays, btw – YUM) and a soda, it was almost $8.00! If I had known that, I would have just gone down the road to Panera. Yikes?!
After my quick shift at work, I came home, got to work on a small cupcake order I have for tomorrow, and even found time to squeeze in a mini workout. I’m tellin’ you guys…I was on a roll today!
- 6 Pack Ab Burn Video (14 mins)
- 20 mins HIIT (<—I have an awesome new workout for you guys! I’ll share soon because oh man, was it a doozy!)
Post-workout and shower, it was time to get into some cozies, grab a glass of wine (what? You don’t follow up a workout with booze?),
and make some dinner. We had homemade pizza on the menu for tonight!
We used a TJ’s whole wheat crust and topped it with some garlic, marinara sauce, 2% mozzarella, Romano cheese, tomato-basil marinated chicken (sliced and sautéed in a skillet), red & green bell peppers, red onion, and some leftover roasted broccoli, which only got added to my half.
I also sprinkled on some dried basil and oregano which, actually, adds some fantastic flavor and makes me think of my mom’s and my grandma’s homemade pizzas growing up. Now they both made some amazing homemade pizza!
I started out with two slices but quickly went back for a third. I was hungry tonight!
Unfortunately, something was up with the crust tonight and it didn’t rise very much; but besides that, the flavor was fantastic and I am fully satisfied.
Jay and I now plan to spend the rest of our Friday evening doing what we do best: catching up on our DVR, enjoying a beverage, and just relaxing. Nothing sounds better!
Questions for the Evening:
Are you (or have you ever been) certified in CPR?
Are there any recipes you try to recreate but someone else always makes it better?
