This morning, I had a great workout. I did a 20 minute warm up on the treadmill for about 2 miles then did 40 minutes of weights. I did 50 push ups followed by bicep curls on the cables, lateral raises, cable one arm triceps push downs, triceps one arm extensions, straight leg dips, squats on the smith machine, high leg hip kicks and then attempted to do more push ups but my arms were shot! I’m already excited to drive into the gym tomorrow morning. The past two days we have driven in we’ve seen some cool stuff. Monday morning, we saw a bobcat!
This morning on the drive in, we saw two shooting stars! I haven’t seen a shooting star in such a long time!
Breakfast this morning is going to be PB toast (simple and easy) with a cup of black coffee. Before work, I’ll have the flaxseed and chia seed drink!
Eats from yesterday were: AM snack- banana and walnuts, Lunch- whey protein shake, Dinner- 1 1/2 bowls beef and barley soup with peppermint bark for dessert (I just couldn’t help myself)! : )
Motivation for the Day: After Caitlin’s big win for Girls on the Run last night, it has motivated me to start looking for a charity to get involved in or find a way to start giving back to the community more! Thanks for the motivation!
Three Things I am Thankful for Today: 1- Hardest day of the week, Monday, is already over! 2- Brett Favre looking super cute in his sweats at last night’s Vikings game! I asked the Husband he if would put on a winter hat like Favre’s and he gave me the funniest look like “you have got to be kidding me, are you serious” (sorry Husband)!
3- Arizona’s weather is going to start go get cold tomorrow! Yay, it will feel much more like Christmas!
Goal for the Day: Salad for dinner (I’m feeling very bloated today and need veggies) and start writing an article that is due soon for a magazine!
