OMG ~ Is tomorrow seriously Monday already? I do not feel as though I even had a weekend yet. Bummer.
Since today was very long and tiring, I have decided I will blog about my Saturday instead of my Sunday.
I started out the morning (and part of the afternoon) at the Y on Saturday. I made my THRIVE SHAKE and drank the majority of it on my drive to Ferdinand. The rest I finished off after teaching a CX Worx Workshop. I worked at the Y for a couple hours after the CX class, then decided to hit the gym for my own workout.
I decided to RUN. I could not take it any longer.
I had talked to several people about running in the last week, and it got the best of me. I needed to RUN. I was just so ready to get sweaty!! (Elliptical sweaty & running sweaty just does not compare.) I honestly did not care how bad my ankle/foot hurt once I started. I just kept going. Logged a good 4 miles before the pain in my ankle got to the point where I decided to listen to my body & stop. But OMG, those 4 miles felt AWE-SOME! I did take some good-old ALEVE this morning upon getting out of bed for the soreness/stiffness in my ankle…but, it was so worth it. The best part of the run yesterday (besides getting SWEATY!!)…I FINALLY got to try out my new Garmin Forerunner 110 watch & HRM.
Loved monitoring my Heart-rate during my RUN!! Cannot WAIT to use it when I start training for the Indy Mini. Oooo, so excited!!
After leaving the Y around 1:30, I headed home to make some lunch.
Saturday Lunch ~
Baked a Sweet Tater (a BIG one!) with cracked pepper and a bit-o-season salt
Made a fresh little bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup to go with my Sweet Tater
Brown Rice Noodles bought at Grounded & used in my soup ~ they tasted very YUMMY! I was super impressed.
Lunch was delicious. I was hungry. So hungry that the above actually did not fill me up. After eating the soup and the tater, I also munched on TWO small home-made Powerballs. Then, I was satisfied.
A package had arrived at my door at some-point Saturday morning ~ I knew exactly what it was when I saw the bag…
Package from Lululemon!
The package contained a new carrying case for my yoga mat that I received for Christmas. Now, it will be easier to carry plus it will stay clean & in good condition for a whole lot longer!…and not stink up my car (because it smells like rubber). Yay!
Dinner on Saturday evening was the easy route: SUBWAY!
KT’s Sub: Turkey, Pepper Cheese, LOTS-O-VEGGIES + Honey Mustard
I enjoyed my subway in the company of a couple other gals (of whom both think my sub is ‘YUCK’…1. because I get Honey Wheat bread, and 2. because I get lots of Veggies on it ~ they don’t know what they are missing!). I must have still been full from my big lunch, because I only managed to eat half of my sub before not being able to eat anymore due to a stuffed tummy. I packed the other half to take home.
After Subway, it was movie time. We went to see ‘Saving Mr. Banks.’ If you are a fan of Mary-Poppins, you will like this movie. If you are not…I advise you not to go see it. I really enjoyed it since I LOVED watching Mary-Poppins when I was younger – it was one of my favorite Disney movies to watch!
After the movie, it was home-ward bound for me. I was hungry when I arrived home at 10:00PM since I had only eaten half my sub at dinner…so, I ate the other half! Spent some time playing with Sophie, then it was off to bed.
I still cannot believe tomorrow is Monday.
Well, enjoy the rest of your Sunday evening & remember that tomorrow starts a fresh, new week. A great opportunity to set goals & work to achieve them throughout the coming week. Think about what little adjustments you could make in your daily eating habits – such as switching from white bread to whole wheat! Main thing is: KEEP IT HEALTHY, PEOPLE!! & get your SWEAT ON!
HARD WORK leads to RESULTS!!
