This morning I was writing October 22nd on everything and here it is October 24th. I am in total denial of how fast this year has flown by!
Yesterday, I did a total upper body workout including arms and followed it with a semi-long plank.
Earlier in the day, I read Tina’s plank challenge idea so I decided to actually time it for once. I, too, was surprised and thought that I would hit at least 3 minutes, being that I have before. Plus, lately I’ve been focusing on more isometric core exercises. This totally swayed me to take part in the plank challenge.
I was actually waiting for her to post it today, but I had already finished my workout so I am planning on giving it a whirl tomorrow! I did, however, run about 3 miles. I kept a moderate to low pace. I think I am just scared about my knee pain coming back so I am trying to take it easy.
After 3 clients and a workout, we had our weekly meeting at work. The only thing we really got accomplished was choosing our Jersey Shore nicknames for Halloween. Yes, the gym is going to be “The Shore Store” for the day.
Can I admit something to you? I’ve never watched Jersey Shore. I’ve definitely seen snippets but never sat through an entire episode. I imagine it to be somewhat painful.
Anyway, I’m going along with it and it’s going to be hilarious and piss people off all at the same time being that the club is located in New Jersey. That and the fact that I’m going to be training my clients in a shirt that says “The Tight End”.
Roasting chickpeas was on the agenda as soon as I got home, along with laundry and cleaning the bathroom, which was a lot less fun. I recently saw Jess’s post about how she roasts chickpeas and wondered why I never attempted this easy snack.
I used my staple spices.
Baked sweet potatoes are so much better than microwaved sweet potatoes! When I have the time, I prefer it because the consistency is so much better and the skin is easier to eat. Sometimes though, you just need to microwave. Fortunately, tonight I had patience. I topped it with fat free Chobani greek yogurt.
Apparently I’m on a paprika kick.
On the side, I made a baby spinach salad with raspberries, feta cheese, and some of the roasted chickpeas for crunch.
I am just finishing up some client programming before hopping into bed for the Wednesday shows = Modern Family!
- What are you being for Halloween?
