I feel like I have been saying this a lot lately but it has been such a busy day already! Typically I hate having a ton of stuff to do, but since I’m on vacation it’s all fun stuff! (Also I realized I forgot to add some pics from yesterday’s baseball game. They are there now)
Be out of bed and dressed by 10 am (except on guilty pleasure day) Run at least 15 miles CHALLENGE: Find 1 free thing to do each day.
You may remember a few days ago I mentioned I had something Free and Fun planned that I had to cancel due to my inability to really move. Well I rescheduled for this morning and got it in nice and early.
I am cat sitting for one of my friends while she is on vacation this week. Her condo complex has a fitness center and she is also letting me gym-sit for her while she is gone! Free gym?! Yes please! I got off to an early start today and got there around 9:45. ( I realize that’s not as early as some crazy gym people but I am certainly not a morning person.) I was the only one there and it was heaven.
I did 2 miles on the treadmill and then I headed downstairs to the weightlifting area. Thank god I was the only one there. I have been to a gym once or twice before, but I typically just do cardio because the machines just scare me.
Like this one? What the
hell heck does this do!? I must have looked ridiculous as I walked around, and tried to figure out how to work the machines. As I was in the middle of pulling and pushing on a machine to figure it out, a group tour entered the gym. Fail.
Eventually I found one or two that I could
figure out handle. I wish I could tell you what the machines were called and what they did but all I know is I was sweating and my arms and shoulders kill!
Post workout snack:
Can you tell I am a creature of habit with a slightly addictive personality? I was kinda bummed this morning because I only had one bar left and then I got a visit from my fairy Godmother and now I am set for a while!
I have to take a moment here to say what an incredible family I have. They are honestly the most supportive, positive, and loving people in the world and I could not be more grateful! 🙂
Speaking of which I got a call from my grandmother this morning asking if I wanted to meet her for lunch. I have really been trying to eat good, and not go out, but she said Panera and I was in! Free Fun# 2 of the day!
(Do we have good genes or what?! She is almost 80.)
I got what I always get at Panera, A Mediterranean veggy sandwich and a Caesar salad.
I was starving at this point so I didn’t care that the picture was blurry.
Now I plan to sit back and watch the Red Sox 100th anniversary game against the Yankees ( I cried throughout the opening ceremony when I saw Yaz and Johnny Pesky). I’m only human right?
Do you have any embarrassing gym stories?!
