Happy Saturday! Based on my last post, it looks like I have a few places to choose from in terms of my new residence. I’m just going to pack my bags and get the adoption papers ready and then I’ll let you know what I decide! Really though, I am happy that those of you who got hit with a lot of snow are safe and sound. It was not pretty here but the sun came out yesterday and started to melt some away so I hope that’s the last of it.
Remember how I said I was training my mom? Well aside from that full-body workout we did last week, we also did one lower body focused workout and one upper body focused workout. Here is the lower body one we did:
I didn’t use heavy weights at all but still torched some crazy calories and my legs were shaking by the time we were done. I’m thinking of adding some plyometrics into next week’s workouts and am a little afraid she might disown me. Hah.
I’m done with talking about exercise. Let’s talk FOOD. So the plan was one treat meal a week. For me that means a meal PLUS dessert. I don’t mess around. I was craving Cinnabon like crazy for about two weeks now so on the day of the snowstorm I risked my life and went to get one. Trust me, the trip was sooooo worth it. SO WORTH IT.
Just look at that beauty. It was heavenly and I enjoyed every warm, sugar-laden bite. Before the cinnamon bun though I thought I should get some “real” food in me so I went to a place called Sandwich Box and got a sandwich (duh) with avocado, roasted red peppers, arugula, some kind of jalepeno-infused cheese and sun dried tomato spread.
Fun fact: I hate side salads. I love making my own big salads full of lots of amazing ingredients but I absolutely hate when restaurants give me spring mix with a squirt of whatever kind of boring dressing they have. So I left it.
The sandwich wasn’t much of a cheat. I eat those kinds of things on a normal basis (except for the cheese) but don’t worry, I made up for it yesterday. I went to go see a doctor to get some orthotics and he is my new favourite person because he left a box of donuts in the waiting room.
Thanks, doc. You’re going to fix my feet and feed me donuts? I love you.
Time to get ready for my long run! Please pray that the sidewalks aren’t icy so I don’t fall on my face. I need this run to be better than last week’s.
Tell me something yummy you ate this weekend!
Do you have a long run today? How far?
