Yesterday was a Woof Wednesday, but before I get to that, here’s what happened Tuesday night.
Also, if you missed yesterday’s giveaway, head on over for a chance to win a pair of PRO Compression socks!
I finally got to have a girls night with Linds, and it was great! We went for a walk throughout her complex, where I filled her in on my past weekend. It was intense and I had some really great stories to tell her. Unfortunately for you readers, the stories are only best friend approved.
After our walk, we headed inside and relaxed. Jackson lacks manners and left my glass smelling like cat breath.
And thennnnnn we bought tickets to see Kip Moore!! Wooo!!
It took us a solid 15 minutes to figure out how to buy tickets, and since we’re so late in the game, we are pretty much 10 rows from the nose bleeds. We don’t care though! The show is actually Labor Day weekend, and is in the town that I grew up in (from age 6-12). Every year, Essex Jct., hosts the Champlain Valley Fair, where there are so many different rides and games to play. During the concerts, if you ride the ferris wheel at night, you can see the show when you reach the top. 🙂
After girls night, I headed home, prepped some food and then continued on reading It Starts with Food. So good! Can’t put it down.
I started my morning off with a really sweaty workout. I literally rang sweat out of my bra after the workout. It was gross!
Anyways, I completed a 3 mile run before tackling a tough shoulder and arm workout. It felt really good to get back to the weights, which I had desperately missed last week when I was away.
I then headed across the street to shower at work. I showered, put my makeup and clothes on, and then reached in my bag to grab my sandals.
Well, kids. Word to the wise. Never pack your gym/work bag the night before in the dark.
Ahhh! Well, at least I had a left and right pair. It was this or my running shoes. Thank goodness for wearing a maxi dress! My boss and coworkers thought this was hilarious, and I purposefully hoarded 4 water bottles at my desk so that I didn’t have to walk to the coolers every 30 minutes.
Lunch was taken at my apartment so that I could grab the correct sandal. I also enjoyed a bowl of oats with 1 too many scoops of pb. Lately I’m having an issue where I want to burp after this meal but it burns my throat and I want to hurl. Any ideas why I’m having this reaction> Sad day because I think today I might try not having pb oatmeal.
An afternoon of meetings was next, and then it was on to 2 hours of tennis with Jenny!
Photo credit to Jenny who turned into a photographer and dodged the other tennis players balls while I was peeing my pants in the local Dunkins.
We played horribly, which is bad since gossip tennis is just hitting the ball and gossiping all night.
After tennis, I prepped some of the Best (Cookies & Cream) Protein Pancakes Ever for today, blogged, and then read more of It Starts With Food!
Such a fun night, which was needed after a busy day at work.
This morning I didn’t want to run. I have those days. We all have those days. So, I decided to complete a hodge podge of a workout that left me feeling surprisingly great!
2.5 mile run, .5 mile walk
- 5 minutes rowing… so hard!
- 12 minutes ellipitcal… was going to go for 15 but I was too bored to survive another 3 whole minutes
- barbell squats & pile squats
- barbell deadlift
- core work
- .25 mile cool down walk
It was a really good workout, and so much better than just running the entire time.
What do you do when you don’t want to do your planned workout? Power through it or mix it up?
