“Did You Just Call Me Barbie?!”

The morning sure did drag on, although it is Monday so what do you really expect? After keeping busy with my workload, I had a craving for my special treat I had in the work fridge. Normally around noon I’ll grab my Chobani (Mango or Strawberry Banana) and throw in some old-fashioned oats to fill me up before my lunch time workout. Instead of going for my Mango yogurt, I grabbed my vanilla yogurt that had sliced strawberries and bananas in it, and went all out by adding a spoonful of Bear Naked Granola and old-fashioned oats.
Result: HEAVEN! It was such a nice switch up from my regular mid-day yogurt routine.

This picture doesn’t do it justice!

Around 1:45 I ran across the street to Gold’s Gym, where I first ventured into the women’s gym. I had planned on spending my workout in there, running on the treadmill and doing free weights and focusing on my core, but when I stepped on the treadmill, it was touch screen and was just too high-tech for me. I like to switch up my pace throughout my run and this treadmill wanted me to set a specific pace. Eventually I’ll test this treadmill out when I have more time, but I really wanted to be able to get a good workout in, so I left the women’s gym and went into the main gym where I found a treadmill right in front of Blue Crush.
When I was in high school me and my girlfriends LOVED this movie. The scene where Kate Bosworth sprints and does pull-ups and crunches on the beach has always been my favorite scene, mainly because it motivated me back then and it still to this day motivates me. Unfortunately I started watching the movie halfway through so I missed it. Looks like I’ll have to head over to Walmart and pick it up for a measly $5 and just watch it in its’ entirety. ☺

Blue Crush

After a quick 1.8 mile run, I THEN finished my workout in the women’s gym where I only focused on my core.

Core Workout:

  • 50 sit-ups with a weight medicine ball ( broken up by: 1 set of 30 and 1 set of 20)
  • 30 side crunches on a stability ball with a medicine ball ( 15 each side)

 

After that, my time was up, and I ran through the parking lot, across the street, and up 69 stairs. Well, I ran 65 and limped, out of breath, up the last 4. Hey, no one’s perfect! 😉

Each workout at Gold’s I fall more and more in love with this gym, and I really think I’ll be cancelling my Planet Fitness membership sooner than expected.
Today’s post-workout lunch consisted of a pouch of Starkist Tuna Salad Chunk Light (a quick and easy meal consisting of 13 g of protein for when I need a quick fix), cherry tomatoes, and a ginormous Fuji apple. Delish!
Back to work the last hour and 45 minutes then my work day is over! Hope you all made it through too!
