Time fly by this morning as I prepped to leave town. It is THE MOST gorgeous day outside!! Cool and breezy yet still summertime warm. I wanted to take my workout outside but was a little too sore for running in the hamstrings. I ended up biking to the Y, doing 15 minutes on the elliptical, and then heading back outside for some walking laps around the track with a magazine. It was an easy, breezy workout. Once home I did the C+K 10 Minute Workout. I think I finished in 9 minutes!! I also wanted to add in response to some of the comments this morning that I do often lift heavy weights (15 lbs for biceps and shoulders). The point of the challenge is to reignite an interest in strength by starting over with time and dedicate – much like I did when I started with just 20 minutes a day of yoga back in December. So no, I am not swearing off weights for ever, as I do think they are important to incorporate and make progress, but if your goals are just to tone what you have and/or recharge your enthusiasm, an at-home workout works wonders.
Lunchtime called!! I used up the last of our fridge. There’s nothing green to be found in this house!
I made a quesadilla with a slice of Applegate ham, 2 tbsp goat cheese and English Beer mustard by Fortnum and Mason
Loved the sharp taste of this mustard! It didn’t leave me tipsy though
Plus a carrot with Chocolate Toffee Peanut Butter
LOoooove Naturally Nutty’s stuff!!
And a Honey Oikos with a chopped peach. I’m not sure I really like the honey flavor. It comes in the form of a gel on the bottom of the cup – like fruit on the bottom style – and you mix it in. I’m just a plain kinda girl!
We are hitting the road for Danville now. I’m not sure if I will have internet tonight, but I definitely will tomorrow. Hope to see y’all sooner rather than later!
