It’s been a few days since I’ve written! Let’s rewind back to Friday; I went and saw Cinderella with my main squeeze and it was so cute! Even he liked it, and he’s not one for fairy tale movies. There was a little girl crying in the theatre during the movie saying, “It’s just so sad!!” Seriously, too cute.
On Saturday Cody’s family came down to see us and we spent the day walking around UW and the Asian market in the international district. His mom bought us this yummy octopus that we had for lunch on Sunday! Yum yum yum!
I always make us an egg white and veggie scramble on the weekends accompanied by some fruit. We get up at different times during the week so I like eating breakfast together when we can!
And then we went to one of my favourite places in the whole entire world; CostCo!!!
He thought I was taking a picture of him, but really I was just trying to capture that delicious looking watermelon in the background… 😉
And as soon as we got home I got right to work making this masterpiece. Fruit is one of the greatest things on earth.
Moving onto my workouts! I took Saturday off because family was here, but the last few days were full of sweaty workouts!
On Sunday I ran 6 miles. It was a good time.
Yesterday I did a full body weight workout at the gym:
Leg Extensions 3×12 with 10 jump squats between sets
Barbell bicep curls 3×10
Close grip lat pulls 3×10
Wide grip lat pulls 3×10
Triceps pull downs 3×10
Bench 1×12, 3×10, & 1×5
Lateral shoulder raises 3×10
I then drove to Green Lake and ran 3 miles in the POURING DOWN RAIN. I loved running in the rain. I didn’t listen to any music. I just ran, listening to the rain, my footsteps, and my breathing. It was glorious.
And today I did the elliptical for 30 minutes, ran 2 miles on the treadmill, and did some HIIT circuits which included a kettle bell, a box jump, my own body weight, and some mountain climbers.
I’ve been having a fruit and veggie smoothie/juice everyday at lunch and I feel so good. It’s amazing what a little extra beets, spinach, and fruit can do for you!!
Last but not least…the Microsoft Health team gave me a Microsoft band!! It is so awesome. It has a gps which I tested out yesterday during my run and it was spot on! It shows you your splits, average pace, where you were slowest/fastest on your route, and your calorie burn. It is so awesome. Yesterday my average pace was 8 minutes and 41 seconds!
It also tracks your calorie burn, steps, and heart rate throughout the entire day. I find myself looking at the band and the app on my phone all the time. The last part of the bracelet that I love is the sleep tracker. I tested it out last night and I did not sleep well…
I woke up 9 times…and only had 17 minutes of restful sleep. WHAT THE HECK!? No wonder I’m tired every morning!
Alright, now that I’ve babbled your ear off I’ll let you go! Props to you if you made it this far!
Have a great day!
