Happy Monday! I hope everyone’s day started out wonderfully!
So the snow didn’t last very long, just a few flakes here and there. But it’s extremely icy out this morning! Be careful, Seattlites!
I had a great run on the treadmill yesterday! I did 4 miles between running and walking on hills. My legs were feeling great and so was my throat; until I got home and started to cough again. Bummer.
I had an amazing lunch, though.
I took out some frozen lasgna that we had in the freezer and warmed it up + paired it with a wonderful caesar salad.
I love caesar salads. I normally do not eat salads with dressing on them besides a little oil but caesar is one of my favorites. I ALWAYS make an exception for them! 😉 With A LOT of fresh cracked black pepper – a total must!
It was a nice, lazy day yesterday. A lot of football watching and lounging. Dinner was not exciting last night – an apple with PB and some yogurt with granola/trail mix. I didn’t end up eating the yogurt, though.
I also put on my baking apron and whipped up a batch of chocolate chip cookies for Marc.
I used an entire bag of chips – chocolate heaven!
I made another juice drink this morning – I am in love with my juicer! Can you tell?! =)
I used my good ole standby mix – an apple, a beet, one carrot, 3 clementines, 3 huge handfuls of spinach, a banana and some ice.
Never disappoints me.
Confession time – I need to workout more.
I need to make time for working out as I have problem areas that I have been lazy about. Yes, I do run but that’s about it. And even this is few and far between. I think I use J as my crutch – making excuses that revolve around him. I hate it, I know I need to up my time and effort to start results again.
So I thought I would come up with a spreadsheet, filled with each day of the month and I would fill in what I would like to do. Like a check list. Workouts that I can do at home and at the gym – I generally stick to doing all cardio at the gym. I’m a little self conscious about doing weights at the gym; I don’t know how to work the machines =(
I want to run a half marathon in June and I know that I am not going to be ready at the pace I have been going. Plus I need to start incorporating more resistance training – I have NOT been doing this at all.
So I need some ideas: what keeps you motivated to continue to workout? What are some tools that help you?
I need to start being more proactive and talking the lead!
Chelsea : here is the nutrition information for the scones. I made half of the bag – the instructions and nutrition info is for the entire bag. So I am guessing that it’s fairly accurate for one of my scones. All I do is add water, that’s it.
