Good morning! Another Monday, another weekend recap. Except……I have nothing to recap. I spend 2 whole days in my pajamas by the fire being a complete and total bum. I did have some tasty food courtesy of Riley. Friday night he made a homemade pizza, which has become a Friday tradition in our house.
Saturday was a steak and cheese crescent bake. This pictures was taken from last time since I couldn’t get a good shot.
We also had some awesome brunch food thrown in the mix. I swear, if it weren’t for his cooking I’d probably live off PB&J. Between the food, naps, and catching up on some tv shows, I had no excuse not to be completely rested for today!
Workout & Breakfast
This morning I woke up at 4:30. This was not easy because I barely slept last night. Turns out, when you spend a whole weekend doing nothing it’s hard to go to bed early and sleep all night!
I checked my phone and saw that it was 21 degrees outside, so I mentally cursed myself for being a crazy person and came soooo close to resetting my alarm so I could sleep in. Luckily, I used the ol’ standby, “You don’t have to work out HARD, just go and do some easy stuff and leave early.” It worked like a charm and I managed to get up in time to get to the gym by 5:00.
I started with some cardio on the adaptive motion trainer. I’m telling you, if your gym has these things I highly recommend them!
I think they’re a lot more fun than an elliptical because you control the range of motion. I also think they’re more challenging. The resistance goes up to 20 so you can get a killer workout in! I put in 35 minutes, going in 1-minute increments up to 20 and back down again.
After my cardio I grabbed a medicine ball and did some ab work in the free area. Not sure how long I did that (2 songs worth?), but I finished up with some stretching before heading home.
Breakfast today was a slice of Ezekiel toast with peanut butter and banana. Predictable, but it never gets old!
I’m headed off to work for what will most likely be a busy day, but I don’t mind because here’s where you can all start hating on me- I only have to work 2 days this week!! That’s right, I get a glorious 5 days off this week for Thanksgiving and I can’t wait. Even though I spent the past two days being a total sloth, I’ll be making a list of stuff I want to accomplish while I’m off, including getting a head start on Christmas shopping!
Hope you all have a great Monday!
What was the best part of your weekend?
Do you get a good break this week?
