This morning when I woke up, I was prepared to get my exercise on! I walked to work in around 25mins. I love this time or morning. Fresh air, feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed while usually listening to whatever "theme song" I am flogging at the minute.
Exercise @ the gym:
10min warm up on elliptical
3 x 15 sets of wide stance push ups
3 x 10 sets of cable cross over
5 x 10 sets of DB bench press
3 x 10 sets of Include bench press
Some ab work and ....drum roll please..
3 x individual PULL UPS! I did THREE!! Can you believe it? Last week on Friday I completed 1 pull up and today I managed to do three. It was amazing. My endorphins went crazy all afternoon!
When I got home, the weather turned pretty nasty so I rugged up to complete a quick run. I didn't need convincing to try out my new Nike running top! Not only does it look pretty trendy, it kept me warm as well. Very comfortable and a great fit.
What do you think?
I told you it was a quick run! Quick in time, not so quick in pace. After legs day on Wednesday, I could definitely feel the burn and was loving it. I ran my usual route (but only one lap of the park as it was dark) and high tailed it home when the wind picked up.
We have the arrival of a very special visitor this weekend, so Matt and I needed to get some grocery shopping done before our usual Sunday afternoon shenanigans. For the second day in a row, this meant that dinner wasn't thought about in great detail - so I had to make do!
I don't usually like microwave meals, but this one seemed OK given the circumstances. It was 9:30pm by the time we got home and I wasn't feeling a dinner smoothie for the 3rd night in a row.
It was very nice - however not something I am going to be craving again. Give me a nice home cooked meal any day!
Right, off to have a shower and get prepared for our visitor! I am serving a salad for dinner as again, we wont be eating until around 8:30-9pm. I don't mind waiting though :)
Do you have a signature meal that you prepare for special guests or visitors? My Mum is famous for her lasagne and it is always requested for family dinners.
