I’m not going to lie, I sort of want one of these buttons . I’d probably wear it too. (Pug people are weird. But, I guess you already know that, right?)
Last Night’s Workout
SUPER FUN workout last night!! I love changing it up!
I met Marie, her friend, Faran, and a new internet friend, Mary, for a bootcamp-style workout at our gym. I love trying new workouts and it was awesome to do it with friends.
The class was a 20-station circuit, where each exercise was done for 60 seconds before moving onto the next station. It took the instructor a solid 15 minutes to explain all of the different exercises, so, initially, I thought I wouldn’t get a good workout, but, boy, was I wrong!!
I pushed myself really hard for each of the exercises. I mean, they were only 60-seconds each, so I figured I might as well make it worth my time. Well, I ended up pushing myself a little too hard because I got lightheaded and dizzy, which never happens to me! It was actually sort of scary, so I took a break and grabbed water before starting again. Even still, I loved the workout, and I’ll definitely go back!
Last Night’s Dinner
Mal made egg salad with mashed avocado (instead of mayo) for dinner last night. I added my portion to a bed of arugula and topped it with flax oil, Garlic Gold , and red pepper flakes. Mmm! Good dinner. Very satisfying.
This morning, I woke up bright and early to meet my Back on my Feet team for a workout. When I left my house, it was already 62 degrees, so I had a feeling we’d run outside today— and we did! We spent the entire workout running/walking around the outdoor track at the YMCA.
Recently, the group has shrunk from 18 to just 6 residents, but everyone ran today. Yay! BOMF is also hosting a session next week to recruit more members to the Father Bill’s Team . I hope we get some new residents!
When I got home, I dug into my overnight oats in a jar that I made last night before bed. In the mix: oats, banana slices, almonds, chia seeds, almond milk, and an extra scoop of peanut butter. Later, I poured myself a glass of iced coffee with soy milk.
With the potential for licking my empty peanut butter jar, wasn’t too far away. As soon as I started eating my breakfast, he wanted to sit in my lap. I know he loves me, but his actions were pretty obvious.
