I procrastinated, checked email, had another cup of coffee, changed my gym shoes and finally drug myself to my car and pointed it east. I fueled up with an Amazing Grass Green SuperFood bar on my way.
My slow going this morning led to major plannus interruptis and I missed getting into the Spin class by one seat. Here comes the bargaining. Maybe I'll just leave and work out over lunch. I don't have my ipod nano, what will I work out to? I really don't feel like getting on the treadmill, elliptical or butt master. I hate it when my routine gets broken. My rule, most of the time, is that once at the gym I will at least give myself 20 minutes to get into the groove. If after that I'm still not feeling it, I leave. So, I jumped on the elliptical and started ellipticalling away the minutes.
Of course, the machine I was on conveniently had been placed right outside the Spin room, the cyclists inside teasing me with their promptness. I decided to play a little game and do my elliptical workout to the pace of the cycling class. When the instructor said to increase the intensity, I upped my resistance. When the bikers were racing on a downhill, I raced with them. I made it the whole hour and burned a ton of calories. The folks in spin probably think I'm a lunatic but it really helped the time go by!
After the workout, I needed a snack. I threw together a quick breakfast bowl of Fage, berries and ground flax.
And headed to the polls!
I had already decided yesterday that I wanted to use my leftover Oregon's Choice gourmet albacore to make melts for lunch.
- Orowheat Sandwich Round
- 1/2 can of Oregon's Choice Gourmet Albacore
- 1 slice of low fat Swiss Cheese
I had errands to run before meeting Marti and Lisa for dinner at Banker's Hill so I grabbed a pear for the road.
And an iced coffee. I need to kick this habit!
