Hi all! Sorry for the random posting times today. I’ve been running around like a crazy woman every since I hopped out of bed an hour late this morning.
After I got off of work at 11:00, I came straight home, and got Niko ready to go to the groomers. She always goes to the groomers on Bunco night; that’s how I keep track:D haha. While home, I made a quick half a tuna salad pita sandwich and ate it before I left.
Poor Niko knew she was going to the groomers. Once we got close, she started shaking a little. However, she was a very pretty lady when she was all done.
While Niko was getting prettified, I was running around like a crazy woman. Hmm…Running Around Crazy?
First, I went to the gym and did some abs work. I did planks, side planks, inverted crunches, bicycle crunches. After abs, I ran four miles on the treadmill. It felt so nice!
Total time: 37:30, which averaged out to be about a 9:37 pace I think?
Max HR: 180 (I played with some hill work)
Avg HR: 164
Cals burned: 445
Woo! Felt great. I’m making myself wakeup early enough on Sunday to run outside, though. I like outdoor running so much better than on the dreadmill. After the gym, I hit up a couple grocery stores and my favorite Pet store in town. While driving, I snacked on some Sahale PBJ flavored almonds.
But look at my grocery haul!!
And for the animals:
Nom nom nom! 😀
Then I had to put them all away. Boo.
When I finally arrived home, I had to act quick to make snacks for Bunco. I made three dishes.
Dish #1 was dark chocolate chip banana bread:
It turned out SO good and SO yummy. It was a huge hit! 😀 I saved half for home because I liked it that much!
Dish #2 was a recipe from Yoga is Yummy. They’re little coconut balls made with almonds, dates, coconut, cocoa powder, and agave.
Alas, my baked goods didn’t bring me much luck tonight. I didn’t win any money again! Of course, everyone wins because we all get to hang out and enjoy each others company 😀
Shane and I are headed over to a Cubs game tomorrow, so that should an great time! I’m sure I’ll be packing up some of these leftovers for game snacks! Those hot dogs and nachos are killer. Let’s hope the Cubs kick some Pirate butt!! (Sorry Pittsburgh peeps)
Question: What’s your current work schedule? And what’s your ideal work schedule?
Mine is M-Th: 7-4:30, and Fri: 7-11:00. I’d say that’s pretty close to ideal for me, but I could always work less;)
