Hello, hello! How is your week going? Two more workdays until the weekend!
Like the rest of the blogging community, I cannot believe it is already fall! I’ve always heard that time goes by quicker as you get older, and now I’m starting to believe it. I want time to slow down, but I also wouldn’t mind if it sped up a little bit. I’m anxious to see what my future has in store!
Since toying with the Whole30 challenge, I have found a new favorite breakfast: 2 or 3 over-medium eggs, 1 large honeycrisp apple and 1 tbsp almond butter. This seems like a lot of food, but it fills me up until lunchtime.
Speaking of the Whole30, over the weekend I definitely chose to eat a few things (like bread) that are off the plan. I am going to start over on day 1. My mom said she will do it with me for some added motivation. We can text each other pictures of our meals or something!
Rekindling my love for weightlifting
Yesterday after work, I fully planned on going to the pool. I brought all of my swim gear and an extra pair of workout clothes just in case I felt motivated to lift weights after swimming.
I drove straight to the gym after work, paid for a day pass and headed to the pool…only to find a lot of children taking swim lessons! I’m sure one lane was available for swimming laps, but it was filled with people already swimming.
I could have gone back to the front desk, complained about my misfortune and left in a bad mood. I didn’t do that!
I had my workout clothes, so I just changed and put on my tennis shoe (not a typo). I hadn’t been to the gym in a couple of weeks, so it felt great to be back! I did a strictly weightlifting workout focusing on my shoulders, back and biceps.
I left the gym feeling strong and accomplished! Maybe today will be the day I finally hop in the water and test my swimming abilities!
Questions of the Day:
- Do you regularly strength train? What is your favorite workout?
- If you could only eat the same breakfast everyday for the rest of your life, what would it be?
