What up, blog world! Happy Friday! Holler 🙂
This week went by in a flash for me! Anyone else? I’m definitely glad it’s the end of the week though. I have a feeling my last two week’s at the office aren’t going to exactly speed by 😉
In regards to yesterday’s post, it looks like there’s many of you who are/were in my situation with wanting to get back in touch with old hobbies. You guys are SO talented and have some pretty awesome hobbies, too! From Christina who used to horseback ride, to Susan who used to be in a band, to Averie who just wants to get out and let loose! There are also a lot of former softball players in the bloggy world! We all lead very busy lives, so it can be difficult to get back into something that’s “just for fun.” I know it took my more than five years to delve back into my hobby of volleyball, but I’m so glad I finally did. Wouldn’t it be nice if we all had about two extra hours a day just to do what WE wanted to do for FUN.
Think of the possibilities if we could all create the time to really hone our crafts of these passions…
So… this is the face of a bad blogger:
I had a super busy day, and failed to take ANY pictures! It was a fun day though – four clients, a "goodbye lunch" out with coworkers, and a 24 episode:)
This morning Shane and I were up and
at ‘em searching for the French Press at 5:00 before getting to our Insanity workout. Today’s work was Power Cardio Resistance, and it was an absolutely awesome workout. We both commented on how we were sweaty beasts and the pushups were killer. Definitely felt it while washing the hair afterward 😉
However, while I was doing some sort of Insane inverted pushup, I had visions of Overnight Oats dancing in my head. Well…that is if overnight oats could dance. I suppose it was more like chilling in the fridge like a blob in my head. Regardless, it was still a motivator to kick some booty and get the workout done.
Before bed, I mixed a concoction of oats, stevia, sea salt, maca, 1/2 scoop of Jay Robb vanilla rice protein powder, carob powder, almond milk, greek yogurt, and dried cherries into a cute little square-shaped bowl:
Wanted to eat it right then and there. I resisted…ok you got me I had a spoonful 😉
This morning, though, it was worth the wait:
Oh yeah, I drizzled melted coconut butter and stuck it back in the fridge too.
Chew. Moan in deliciousness. Repeat.
So tomorrow will be a week from the half marathon last Saturday, and I haven’t run since. It feels SO weird! I definitely have the itch, but I told myself I’d take a whole week off of running after the half. Obviously I’ve been going other exercise though, with Insanity, the elliptical, and volleyball, but it’s still very weird. Also, I’m not sure if this directly correlates with my lack of running, but my appetite has been very low this whole week. Typically, I could eat any time, anywhere. Seriously I’m pretty much hungry all the time. However this week, I haven’t been needing hardly as many snacks and smaller meals. I guess we’ll see if it picks back up when I start running again on Sunday!
On the agenda today:
- Niko walk
- having girlfriends over for a SATC night! Gotta prepare for SATC2 ya know. I’m pretty sure it qualifies as an event, and re-watching the series counts as training. Oh, and drinking cosmopolitans 😉
What are your plans for the weekend?
Does your appetite noticeably change when your workouts change?
