Switching Up the Lunchtime Routine

Spin class was about half full today, not sure if that surprised me or not. I had no expectations about Rachel the instructor, even after picking Jen’s brain. A few minutes before class, a tough but cute looking lady came entered in black pants, a black top and a pink bandana on. Almost reminded me of badass Matthew McConaughey.

 

I Wish I Was the One Running Behind Matthew 😉

The first track she put on reminded me of something at a rage, Slipknot? It was awful and not my taste at all. After the second song came on, which was pretty similar, I thought that maybe this genre of music would be motivating, but as class wore on, it just wasn’t. We did a lot of hill climbs in position three, my LEAST favorite. My arms were burning, and at times I wanted to take it easy and rest a little on my forearms but I quickly reminded myself that I was here to get better and get my ass kicked, not to take it easy.

While the instructor was really nice, she wasn’t extremely motivating like Eve was on Monday. I only took this class because the evening class was canceled and I really didn’t want to wait until Monday for another fitness class.

My legs are burning badly and I’m exhausted, so tonight I’m just going to take it easy and not go for a 2 mile-ish run. Listening to the body. 🙂

My stomach grumbled during the tail end of class, so I was excited to shower and doll up as quickly as I could so I could attack my lunch. Even though it’s not Paleo because of the bread, it doesn’t bother me. So far today I have eaten strictly Paleo, and I want to go into this starting off eating 70% Paleo and working my way up to a more strict Paleo lifestyle. I refuse to say diet, it’s a lifestyle choice.

A Drool Worthy Night

I’ve been battling internet issues all day, as it seems every time I come on to write a post, I lose internet connection! Funny how I have connection to look at dresses on HauteLook.com. 😉

Did you all know that today is National Cousins Day? I was so excited when my cousin, Jay, sent out a mass text to all of the Lewis cousins giving us the good news. I adore my family. All of the cousins are some of the closest friends, as we do almost everything together and get mildly jealous if someone gets left out. My cousins have been there for me through so much (2 moves to Los Angeles.. oops!) and I love them more than they know. So tell your cousins how much they mean to you.

Happy Cousins Day ❤

 

Today was a great workout day, I felt very strong rowing and light during my run.

Sunday’s Workout:

  • 4.1 mile run
  • 11 minutes rowing at 7
  • 11 1/2 minutes stairs, 42 flights
  • 3 sets of 13 Lat Pull Downs, 55 lbs.
  • 2 sets of 9 Assisted Pull Ups, 75 lbs.
  • 40 Overhead Medicine Ball (6 lbs.) Sit Ups

After my workout, I flew home to shower quickly and whip up a tasty protein shake before heading out to the movies with my Mom. My Mom and I have had a tradition for years in which we go on movie dates. Most of the time we’ll see chick flicks, since we love our leading men, but we have on occasion seen action/thriller movies (i.e The Grey….. but our favorite man, Dermot Mulroney was in it.. yummy!)

Oh hello you sexy man beast

Since there weren’t any new releases that interested us, we ventured over to the cheap seats, where tickets are $3.50, and saw The Lucky One. I read this book about a year ago and absolutely was engrossed in it. I’ve put off seeing the movie for a long, long time, mainly because I felt like they incorrectly casted the leading man. Zac Efron, in my opinion was just wrong for the lead role on every single level. While the movie was decent, I wouldn’t watch it again, nor would I recommend the movie, unless you’re a big Zac Efron fan.

After that, I just enjoyed my Sunday evening, watched a little Friends (my favorite show!) and Olympic diving until I realized TBS was having a Matthew McConaughey marathon. Hubba hubba, that’s MY man!

Too much perfection!

Time to go eat peanut butter from the jar and drool over Matthew. 🙂
