I used 4 lb weights which I thought might be too light at first, but some of the moves - especially the one-minute isometric hold - were pretty tough. Phew, I was shaking. Then I went on a short jog, followed by stretching and foam rolling. I did the whole workout in 4 different places, and I think switching up the location so much helped it to fly by. Except for the jump roping parts... those were killer.
I continued my workout (kind of) by washing my car after that.
So stylish, right? Ha. I was actually hoping it would start raining while I was washing the car because then I wouldn't have to dry it... that's my least favorite part. No such luck, but at least my car looks better for it.
A salad and a taster plate of carrots, hummus, snap peas, and 1/2 an apple.
The salad had spinach, grape tomatoes, yellow bell pepper, sliced almonds, and homemade Italian dressing. Tasty!
This afternoon I baked a loaf of beer bread to take to my grandparents' house for dinner tonight. It has just a few ingredients (all-purpose flour, white whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, a bottle of beer - I used pumpkin ale, and butter) and it's really easy and quick because you don't have to let it rise. Plus it's delicious.
Off to dinner with the fam. Have a good night!
|Forget-me-nots at my parents' house. I transplanted one clump into this area in high school and they've really spread! Love them.|
