Love/hate relationship with the Dreadmill




With my sprained knee, I had to take it super easy running today (in fact, I was supposed to wait until Monday to run again but I COULDN’T!!!).


Anywho, I find the treadmill incredibly boring but on the upside, there is a killer view from the gym in my apartment building (I apologize for the blurriness but you get the point)…





You see the triangle-looking building that is shining in the Chicago skyline (below)? That is the white building to the left (above).  Pretty sweet view if you ask me.


So I ended up doing about 1.3 miles on the dreadmill (which felt awesome) and 20 minutes on the bike.

We are having a friend over for pizza (I will be eating fish instead) so I’ve gotta go.  

It’s almost Friday, WOOT!

Workout or snuggle?

This is how Scooby feels about me working out rather than spending quality time with him.

I SO did not feel like working out yesterday afternoon but since I loaded up on calories throughout the day, I had to.

I did 15 minutes on the bike & 30 minutes on the elliptical. End of story.

My best bet is to do cardio in the morning before work and lift weights after work. Considering I have to get up at the butt-crack of dawn (5:15 AM) to work out early, that’s easier said than done.

Hey Scooby, pimpin’ aint easy, but somebody’s got to do it!
