Hope everyone is having a great Sunday!!! My day started off well with a nice little bit of leftover from the Spin-A-Thon that managed to somehow sneak back into my house:
Thanks again to Panera, we had tons of leftover bagels that I stole willing fully distributed to the staff at the YMCA 😉
With half the Dutch Apple bagel I smeared on some Skippys Natural PB, and THIS: (love, love, love)
Some leftover strawberries and a banana rounded out this yum-filled breakfast:
And after feeling guilty for a couple of days, I gave into the beggers in front of me and let the doggies sample some bagel love:
See. I do give in occasionally. Also this morning, I got up expecting to be INCREDIBLY sore especially in my calves/ankles….but I can happily report that other than a bit stiff, I feel great! I guess all that spinning didn’t kill me after all! Yay!
A little bit later my house had a nice new surprise awaiting us:
A treadmill!!! That was a very random and unexpected surprise. Apparently mom is going to be walking indoors now, or so she is telling me. Score for me though if I ever need a quick mile or two…or some incline work! Yay for unexpected pieces of random workout equipment! 😀
I have been particularly lazy all afternoon and have attempted to get organized and catch up on some computer related activities, which always tend to make time fly. By the time I glanced up, it was lunch time. Sort of a mish mash of what I had laying around…but I knew that I really wanted some good soup as part of it. Amy to the rescue as always!
I have had this Summer Corn Chowder before and it is amazing. It almost tastes cream based, which I love. Minus the guilt though, which is a nice thing! I love all of Amy’s soups! I needed something to munch with this so I went the veggie/pita chips route. These are some new pitas I tried and LOVE. Chocked full of vitamins and minerals, and only 60 calorie per pita! Score!
Cut one of those bad boys up, and added two of my good friends: Chili Powder and Red Pepper Flakes for a bit of heat:
400* oven, a spritz of Pam Organic, and voila…. homemade pita chips!
So I had pita chips, and soup. I needed some hummus and veggies!
And there we have it folks, my idea of the perfect Sunday lunch:
Everything was so good and fresh tasting. I especially loved having leftover pita chips to soak into the soup….yummmm
With lunch accomplished I set my mind on the workout of the day. I really need to do weights, but the YMCA’s weight room is so tiny…and the men that dominate occupy the room 24/7 are far from polite. They leave their stuff everywhere, and are down right rude. I hate trying to fight for dumb bells back there, I normally just grab my weights and take them off somewhere to do my lifting. Today I think I will focus on Biceps and Chest……give my lower body a break for once. 😉 I also need to start planning my spin CD for tomorrow night, and working on my weight routine for Thursdays class! Is it bad that I just got my degree in K-6 Education in December and all I want to do is teach fitness classes for the rest of my life???? Who knows. I am at a crossroads, ok?!?! 🙂
I love updating this blog at Panera. It is literally about 75 feet from the YMCA, and it is in the same shopping center as a Starbucks! How amazing is that??? My laptop has become a staple around these parts:
PS, can I just tell you how much I despise this activity:
I don’t know what it is about getting gas, but it absolutely drives me nuts. I haaaaaaaate it.
Do you have any weird pet peeves? What are they?
Well, enough procrastinating. Time to head to the gym for some fun times! I am having Sushi and movie night with Maggie tonight and I am so stoked! We always have the best time. Now if I can just decide what I want for my movie “treat” hmmmmm….any suggestions????
Have an amazing Sunday everyone!
