Pretty laid back day today, which is always nice! I’ve been working on getting a more personalized theme for my blog but it’s taking some time…
Breakfast this morning was a Banana Donut in lieu of a regular gas-station donut.
It hit the spot without weighing me down like a regular donut would have, and I made it through a workout without feeling sick from a sugar/fat/grease overload.
I’ve developed shin splints again that are currently keeping me bound to the elliptical, which is not very exciting. Fortunately, with a good book it’s a lot easy to power through 35 minutes of elliptical on the cross-training setting. I’m currently reading Lightning by Dean Koontz. I’m a huge Dean Koontz fan and though I”m only 50 pages into this book, I have a feeling I won’t be disappointed by this novel. This particular novel is one of Koontz’s older works, published in 1989 (An excellent year, considering that I was born then ;) ).
After the elliptical was 2 minutes of planking followed by 3 reps of 8 each on the chest press, leg extensions, leg curls, and abs.
Lunch was the last of my Quinoa Chili with a side of grapes.
I don’t know what it is but for some reason I need to have both purple and green grapes together to really enjoy them. I don’t like to eat just one or the other, I need one purple and one green at the same time, it’s like they balance each other out. Maybe that’s just me though…
I spent most of my time after lunch working on updating and personalizing my theme (which is obviously not finished) until it was time for dinner. My family usually goes out to dinner together on Sunday, and this weekend we went to Friendly Farms. They have delicious crab cakes (though I can’t say I’ve ever had a crab cake that wasn’t delicious).
A nice, tasty end to the weekend.
What is your favorite thing to read while working out?
