I’m such a blonde. What happens when rain hits snow? It melts! I might have made the mistake of calling it slush earlier, oppstini. Instead of hopping over slush puddles on my walk to the gym, I hopped over rain puddles. Everywhere. The rain was even worse and more harsh on my walk back to work, but the workout was so good and left my muscles feeling sore.
I was craving cardio today, so I split it up between 3 cardio exercises:
- 1.5 mile run
- 10 minutes Elliptical
- 10 minutes Vertical Elliptical with intervals
The vertical elliptical is easily my favorite piece of equipment at the gym. I had never seen or used one of these before joining Gold’s Gym this past summer, but it has became a staple in my workouts. When you switch the incline, you bring your legs up higher to your chest, and each incline works different areas.
There’s even a display of your legs that will light up depending on what area you’re working.
With 5 minutes left in my workout, my stomach started to growl, and I was tempted to ditch early because my lunch was the highlight meal of my day. I soldiered through the last 5 minutes while dreaming about this:
An egg and cheese sandwich. To. Die. For.
I haven’t had one of these sweet babies in what feels like a solid month, so it received a warm welcome in my tummy.
I made this last night before bed and reheated it in the microwave today. Of course it’s better eaten fresh, but it’s still just as good reheated.
For the base of the sandwich I used Flat Out Hungry Girl Whole Wheat with Flax Foldit.
I cooked two eggs and left them partially “easy” and loaded one egg with shredded cheese before sandwiching the two eggs together. This baby hit the spot!
After work I broke a monster sweat while I completed the Core Synergistic P90X workout. This is the 2nd time I’ve done it, and while I didn’t enjoy it the 1st time, I found that I really got into it tonight. My abs were burning and cursing through the core exercises.
My abs will be looking fierce on tomorrow night’s date. Errr, well, I mean my stomach will be flat? 😉
Look at how patient the little boy is while he waits to lick the Chobani yogurt container.
This is our nightly tradition. After I make my overnight oats he gets the container to lick and chew.
Time to go relax for this little lady!
