I had yesterday off from work, and a regret not taking better advantage of it. I caught up on some laundry and crossed off a few other tasks from my to-do list, but I didn’t do anything very fun or exciting. I hate to think that was my last holiday until Memorial Day. Doh!
When I finally got to the gym, I wanted to skip cardio, but I told myself to just do 20 easy minutes on the elliptical. I ended up talking myself into 30 minutes of speed/hill intervals on the treadmill. Funny how that happens once you just get yourself going!
I foolishly wore a long-sleeve shirt and my thicker capris to the gym, which meant I got pretty warm. 10 minutes into my run, I pulled of the shirt. I’m not sure what I hated more, that naked feeling or the looks from the creepy old men.
I don’t know how some ladies do it. I quickly pulled it back on before beginning my cool down and moving on to weights.
Later in the day, I cooked up a lunch for Kevin to take to work , bacon and caramelized onion risotto. Yup… pretty jealous of that one!
Not long after, I cooked up some dinner. Kevin also got a side of sweet potato “fries.” (Side note: I dislike both asparagus and salmon, but I know they’re good for me. Even big kids don’t always want to eat their vegetables.)
- Got any get-it-done tricks to get yourself to the gym?
- Did you have the day off too?
