Tuesday: Had a few hours to take off of work, so I went to a mid- morning make up Pilates class (yay alliteration!) that I had missed due to being gone over Easter. It was weird being in that same class room with different people at a different time of day. But I survived (and then had Chipotle, yum, but ugh!). After work I went to yoga. The instructor cracks me up and I figured out why. She has ADD moments. She'll be all serious, then a pause, then "what is that on the ceiling???". haha! I felt pretty tired after this 2 workout day, but it was a good feeling.

Wednesday: I had to work at the church after work, so I couldn't go to Trifit. I did have a little time, so I did a 25 min trail run at my favorite nature preserve. I was fighting a cold, so it felt pretty hard on my lungs! Even though it is April, a very few number of naturey things had started turning from winter brown to spring green. Meh. At least I got to have Froyo for dinner!
Thursday: I was going to run my usual greenway route, but my friend wanted to meet for dinner at our favorite place. How could I say no? I had bad decision incident that afternoon where I was upset that I had to run a birthday card to a co-worker at another location. The boss said she HAD to get it on her birthday. So I was feeling like I had "earned" a treat. So I stopped at the McD's that's across the street from work. I was going to order one apple pie, but they're 2 for a dollar. No big deal, I would put in the fridge. Oh, and would I like anything to drink? Yeah, a large coke. Who the eff am I??? Of course, I shoved both pies and the large coke into my pie hole. I ordered dinner with my friend, but took the majority of it home. After dinner, I went straight to the YMCA and hopped on the dreaded treadmill. It really wasn't that bad. I walked for 5 mins, ran for 15 mins, took a walk break, ran for 5 mins, another walk break, ran for 6 mins and cooled down. Total of 40 mins. The girl next to me, might have been 75-100lbs lighter than me, but I was running longer than she was :) Made me happy, but I'm sure she was running faster, at least.
|First time I wore this shirt. V-neck only good for running. Anything else is too much cleavage!|
Friday: I worked and then went straight to babysit. Got to hang out with some cute kiddos. The mom text me the next morning and called me the "baby whisperer" because the 5 m/o girl slept for 11 hours that night! Perhaps I should raise my prices, lol! I had a hard time not shoving a million things in my face when babysitting & at home afterwards.
|I was more excited than she was, clearly.|
|Leftover cajun food. Nom nom nom. (look away my lo carb friends!)|
|Friday eats: salmon patty w/ranch. Veggies galore.|
Saturday: Saturday morning Pilates, obviously! I went to work for a couple of hours, then I went to a bike shop. Not gonna lie, it's totally like looking for a car in the sense of I had no idea what I was doing. Luckily, the first place I went was soooooo great. The sales guy was very understanding of my beginner level knowledge. I rode a couple of bikes around, but knew I wasn't going to make any purchases. I went to the Y to swim in my fave pool. It was such a great swim! Sun was shining in, temp was just right, and at one point, I was the only one in the lap pool for about 20 minutes. That afternoon, I went to 4 more places looking for bikes and might have found the place I will buy from. I rode bikes for about 20 mins total that day. Then I watched the new Doctor Who episode with SwimTot :)
Sunday: Worked at the church! I was super tired, so I just went home, took a nap and did my taxes so I can actually afford to buy a road bike! But then I also got a bit of cold feet. That is such a large amount of money!
SBBC score: 43.3 - amazing! Highest week yet!!! I believe the phrase is "like a boss" hehe
Weekly weigh in:
Last week: 236.6
This week: 235.6
I was a little hardcore (for me) in the workouts this week, so a pound is good. Probably would have been more if I had had a better week in terms of food!
What has been your best workout week?
Any suggestions on road bike models?
Tell me any "like a boss" moments, I love to hear them!
