Taught an hour spin class this morning
Ran 8 miles on the treadmill afterwards in just over an hour
I was annoyed because they treadmill I usually use at the gym was occupied. I get a little possessive about the treadmills. I know I can’t be the only one, right?
Anyway, I ended up being happy with the treadmill I got as it didn’t stop or force me to do a cool down at an hour and I got to finish my 8 miles. I had planned on trying to get some speed work in, but it just wasn’t happening after sweating it out in spin. Oh well, I figure there are days when you go for it and push yourself really hard and there are days when you realize you just want to get it done and enjoy the ride. Yes?
I also got to open a brand new bag of Starbucks espresso. That always makes my morning a little more exciting! Thank you Jessica!
Post workout I was starving. Since I’m still working on weaning myself from my daily sweet roasted kabocha squash habit, today I made this bowl of magnificence instead.
Thanks to huge snacks like this one, I think I’m through the hard part of the kabocha squash detox. Ha ha. My wallet is happy, I don’t have squash on the brain daily, I’m finding other things to roast and I seem to have a little more time in my day. I’m missing the extra arm workout though. Ha ha.
This afternoon I roasted some peas again.
Here’s how I did it.
I rinsed them and took the strings out. Then I put them on a pan sprayed with non stick spray and seasoned them with Trader Joe’s Everyday seasoning, cayenne, garlic salt and pepper and then roasted them at 400 convection for 20-25 minutes.
Perfect. I love snacky finger foods like that.
We also had a very successful dentist visit this afternoon.
Thank goodness. I was a little nervous things wouldn’t go over so well, but this helped.
Cool right? They have TVs on the ceiling too to watch when you’re laying back. I love our dentist.
you know how they say people with addictive personalities (yes, I totally have one) replace certain addictions with other ones? I swear that is so true. I’m working on getting over my squash addiction and I have a feeling that the newly discovered Quest Bar is going to help out a bit along with roasting carrots and sprinkling PB2 on just about everything these days. Ha ha.
I’m also about to do a little online retail therapy here (pretty awesome GNC Deal of the Day on Quest Bars), here and here. (Just in case STUFT Daddy reads this- I have gift cards for two out of the three sites.)
How was your day?
