Saturday night we were having some people over to watch the Gator football game so I knew it was going to be a busy day!
My original plan was to run outside for about 50 minutes or so but the weather was not cooperating. It doesn’t look like it in this picture but it was quite chilly and rainy here in Chicago ALL WEEKEND.
I am not a big fan of doing long runs on the treadmill so instead of running for 50 minutes on the treadmill, I did 35 on the TM in my upstairs gym and then I tried out one of those “Insanity” workouts; it was a pretty decent workout! I might actually invest in a couple of the videos 🙂
After working out, I hit up the grocery store, got ready and spent the rest of the afternoon in the kitchen. The gals that came over are vegetarian and the guys, not…so I was sure to make an assortment of different types of food. The menu was as follows:
Baked eggplant parmesan
Guacamole dip and hummus with veggies & chips (pictured below)
I was a total loser and only took one picture of the food, I guess I got all caught up in the act of cooking! I thought the night was a success with there being plenty of food (with somewhat healthy options), great friends, and an awesome game to top it off!!! I know you guys are very concerned so yes, yes the Gators did win (and are now ranked #3 woo hoo)!
I suck at taking pictures so even though this one is all blurry/grainy, I am proud of myself for remembering to take it!
This week has gotten off to a shaky start with me having to work late yesterday so here is a snapshot of this week’s goals:
Monday: Run for 35, bike for 15 (check!)
Tuesday: 6 rounds of the following: 1/2 mile run, 10 push-ups, 20 squats, 30 sit-ups
Wednesday: 40-50 minute run in the morning
Thursday: Strength training
Sunday: Elliptical for 30 minutes, body works + abs class
Hopefully my work schedule doesn’t get in the way!!!
