Back to the Routine

Sigh, Tuesday, my least favorite day of the week.  I’m still struggling to get out of vacation mode, and back into work mode, but I’m trying.  After work, my sister and I hit the gym for some cardio.  I am beginning to hate the treadmill more and more, especially after my 3 runs at the beach.  Beach scenery is just so much prettier than running on a conveyor belt.

I wasn’t sure at the start of the run how long I wanted to go for, so I set the time for 40 minutes and got to it.  My sister finished her workout and came over right before I hit mile 3, so I pushed it a little, threw in some sprints, and called it quits at 3.5 miles.

  • 3.5 miles
  • 32:50
  • 9:22 pace (about)

On Saturday when I was sitting at the bf’s, he came downstairs and plopped a box next a me.  “That’s one of your birthday presents, do you want to open it now or wait?”.  Well come on now, you can’t actually give me the box and expect me to wait to open it.  He assured me that there was another present that he would give me on my real birthday (this Sunday), so I opened it.  I got three new fun workout tops, and I wore one of them yesterday.

Isn’t it cute?  I’m sure I’ll be modeling the other ones this week also.  Dinner last night was a super boring turkey wrap, with bacon, lettuce, a slice of cheese and mayo.  I also had some spinach and artichoke humus and pita chips on the side.

Tonight my sister and I have a movie date to finally go see Eclipse, and I am super excited.  Eclipse and Breaking Dawn were my two favorite books in the series, so I have really been looking forward to the movies.  Hopefully Kristen Stewart constantly tucking her hair behind her ear and biting her lip won’t distract me from Taylor Lautner’s abs too much.  Sorry if that’s creepy, I know he’s young, but they are really nice.

Have a great day everyone!

  4. lolz– I was just asking myself why the hell I canceled my gym membership. I could be running indoors instead of in 90degree heat/90% humidity outside. BECAUSE I AM STUPID. Cherish the treadmill.

  5. Cute workout top! I really need a few more… I’m hitting my parents up for my bday for that one as well… :)

    Oh and I may have to correct you with your turkey wrap. Anything with bacon cannot be boring. That’s my life lesson for the day… :p

  9. Hrm. I have never set a time limit on the treadmill before. This idea intrigues me. Also, hats off to the boyfriend for picking an awesome gift! That’s practically female intuition there!

    • Yeah he’s a really good shopper, I’m pretty lucky. I always set the timer, I have to know there is end in sight, haha.
