River Runs, Cupcakes, Sushi & Dick’s

Yesterday was the first day in weeks that it wasn’t rainy and cold, it was actually sunny and in the low 70s. When I first started typing this out I actually wrote months instead of weeks. For my lunch time workout, I headed over to the gym but on my 3.3 second walk over, I realized just how nice it was and felt guilty working out inside.

Wow, THAT’S a Hike!

In case you were wondering, this is the walk I make from my car in the morning to work, and then from work to the gym on my lunch.

After 1.25 miles on the treadmill I got too antsy and ran back to work to grab my phone so I could track my run by the river. I do need a GPS watch so anyone out there in the mood to give Christmas gifts early, I’m accepting.

I work in the mills, and behind my building lies the Merrimack River, with the famous River Walk path. Okay, it’s only famous if you live here, but give me my 2 minutes of fame. 🙂

It’s Leaf Crunching Season!

I ended up running for 1.4 miles outside, bringing my run to a total of 2.7 for my lunch run and 5.7 total for the day.

Lunch consisted of leftovers, and dessert was a PMS cupcake. I laughed when I heard the name of it but it was fitting, as it was covered in peanut butter frosting(oh hello!), marshmallow, Reese’s Pieces and fudge.

After work, I enjoyed a California Roll and received a great fortune. Whenever I get a bad fortune, I always have to open more until I get a “good” one. Luckily, this was the one that was handed to me, so I’m actually excited to see if it comes true.

Do you guys believe in fortunes and horoscopes?

I eat that stuff for breakfast, and most of the time it always comes true!

After dinner I headed over to Dick’s Sporting Goods to use a $10 coupon I had that was about to expire. Shopping for workout clothes on a Friday night is my kind of excitement! I fell in love with this Under Armour outfit, even if I do look like Halloween! The shirt is a fun v-neck Under Armour “Run” t-shirt that supports Breast Cancer Awareness. The back is pretty awesome, but I forgot to snap a picture of my rear.

I’m debating on whether to get the light blue shorts instead.

They’re more my color but the orange is just so bright and fun! I didn’t buy them last night but I’ll be in the area today when I hang out with Lindsay so I might have to buy them!

Time to go hit the gym.. Happy Weekend everyone!

Obsessed with the Health Food Aisle

Since I have spinning tonight from 6-7, I decided to skip my lunch time run and go for a warm up 1-2 mile run before spinning, since I will have to kill time from 5:10 until class begins. It is absolutely gorgeous out so I was in the mood to go for a little drive with the windows down and sunroof open. I took Jax, my handsome sports car, for a spin around the North End, a more wealthy neighborhood near my work. After my joyride, I was famished, and my 4 California Rolls I bought last night didn’t fill me up so I headed over to the grocery store to pick up a little fuel so I’d survive the rest of the day until I’d get home around 7:20.

I picked up this strawberry protein powder, because all I could think about when I saw it was strawberry (protein) milk. Hello childhood memories! Plus, it was only $13.99, and would still allow me to pick up my absolute favorite protein powder later in the week.

Sounds SO Good!

I scanned the health food aisle to try and find a light protein bar to hold me over between work and to get me through spinning class, and I found a new bar that excited me.

Ahhhh I LOVE Peanut Butter!
