I slept in until 6 am this morning and it was wonderful. I checked the weather and decided to have my coffee first thing, and go for a run around 7:15.
The weather at 7 this morning was 65 degrees so I was happy. I did four miles followed by some strength training and core work.
I have a little workout room in my basement, but I wanted to bring some stuff upstairs so I could watch Live with Kelly and Michael in the sunroom. It really does make my workouts entertaining.
I brought up my yoga mat and some foam mats to make the ground a bit softer to do core on. I brought up some dumbbells, resistance bands, and an ab roller.
I did 2 sets of 12 squats, lunges, and side lunges. I do lower body strength training on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and upper body on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
I did my normal core routine and followed up with some stretching.
I love to workout out in my house because no one besides Charlie has to look at my awesome styled hair.
I am always starving after a workout so today I had a bowl of Kashi cereal with unsweetened soy milk.
I then spent the majority of the day out in my vegetable garden picking little trees out of the mulch. As I kid I loved the helicopter seeds. As an adult with a veggie garden, I hate them.
Charlie doesn’t like to go too far from my side.
Some of the reasons I love summer vacation are:
- Being able to spend more time on my workouts and not feeling rushed
- Working outside in the yard all day
- Letting Charlie play outside all day
- Playing the piano as much as I want
- Reading books for fun
- Cleaning my house
- Watching chick flicks on Netflix
- Eating vegetables straight from the garden
I’m sure there are hundreds more reasons, but those are things I’ve done today.
Have a fabulous Monday! I’m eating this as I type…
Oh, and one more thing!
I have posted about Harriet before and how amazing she is. She finished the San Diego marathon last week in 7:24:36. AWESOME.
