I’m a Walking Blueberry

Today I’ve been walking around feeling like a blueberry. You know, plump and blue. I consumed just a little too much peanut butter last night and it left me with a little belly today. Also, I’m wearing a turquoise tank top with a royal blue sweater over it, cue the blueberry jokes. I literally didn’t know what to wear this morning and this was the result. I’m too embarrassed so this will NOT be documented.

I hit the gym a little earlier today as I have a meeting with the two heads of the Aviation department. I literally (said like Chris Traeger aka heart-throb Rob Lowe), didn’t think I’d be running long, my legs felt like bricks and I was having trouble breathing in the sauna, I mean gym.

I ended up getting into the run about halfway through before I jumped on the rowing machine.

Lunch-Time Workout

  • 1.7 mile run
  • 5 minutes rowing, level 5 (wuss)
  • Stretching
  • 2 sets of 25 medicine ball sit-ups, 10 lbs.
  • 30 stability ball crunches with 10. lb. medicine ball
  • 30 side crunches with 10 lb. medicine ball

Olympics 2016?

After showering the sweat off, my stomach started grumbling and I annihilated my turkey, spinach, alfalfa sprouts and mustard wrap, with a side of cherry tomatoes and sugar snap peas. Phew, long sentence.

Healthy & Filling!

Like I said, today is a fresh start with healthy and smart choices.

Off to meet with those flying experts! 🙂

Happy Wednesday!… I mean Tuesday

This morning I woke up feeling “heavy.” I think it was from all the peanut butter I inhaled last night. Surprisingly I felt fine from last night’s spinning, and didn’t “break my vagina.” I’m not sure if that’s a victory or not.

This morning I had time for a 3.1 mile run followed up by a little core work.

Morning Workout

  • 3.1 mile run, post-run stretching
  • 50 crunches and 50 side to side crunches
  • 25 reverse crunches
  • 2 sets of 13 standing side crunches with 8 lb. dumbbells
  • 2 sets of 13 deadlifts into an upwards row, 8 lb. dumbbells

Check out the awful outfit I walked to my neighbors in this morning. (I didn’t want to get dog fur all over my black dress pants).

Off to work.

P.s today is my “Wednesday!” Happy Tuesday to all your other suckers who don’t have Friday off.

“Don’t Break Your Vagina!”

This afternoon I attended my first spinning class since the Fall of 2009, when I used to go junior year of college with my roommates. I was so excited that I skipped my lunch and left an hour early so I could make the 4:30 class. On my way out of the office, Jen called to me, “Don’t Break Your Vagina!” Thanks Jen, thanks.

When I got to the gym, I picked up my spinning tag, claimed a bike in the back row, and went for a quick 1.3 mile run before class began. When I got in there, I of course chose a bike with a broken adjuster so I looked like a tiny fool trying to adjust my seat. Luckily only three other girls were in there at the time. Before the instructor started, I talked with her and told her how I hadn’t gone spinning in years and asked her to make sure my seat adjustments were correct and for any pointers.

Work Those Legs, Girls!

Let me just tell you the class was amazing! There were several times I made myself slow down and not go all out the first time, as two instructors gave me the “take it easy the first few sessions” advice. I worked up a great sweat, and so did the man at the end, who proceeded to discard his shirt. Thank you buddy!

After spinning, Eve led the 5 of us who stayed through several core exercises. We did side planks, regular plank, hip dips during a plank, and several other exercises I can’t even begin to describe.

After a quick shower and a delicious protein shake, I headed over to my neighbors and hung out with Guenther. We played a little basketball, well I did while he coached me.

My Neighbors Have an AMAZING Basketball Court!

Can we just talk about how kick ass their basketball court is? My dream has come true… well for the week at least.

Off to go prepare tomorrows meal and dive into my book!
