At Home It’s a Go At Gym It’s a No
Hi again 😀 Hope your days just swimming on by! How do you guys like this font? I’m not really too keen on what I had before. This is Calibri – it’s my favorite to use in the office, so we’ll see how it does in blog land. As a forewarning – this won’t be the first change you see coming to Running Around Normal. In the next couple weeks, it will have a whole new look! I’m SO excited about it 😀
So it sounds like we all deal with guilt from time to time. It’s a natural human response – but it’s how we deal with it that matters most, right?
In spirit of the new rule to cut running days down from five to four in order to avoid further injury, I woke up this morning knowing I would forgo my usual Thursday six mile run and instead get some cross training in.
This also meant I could exercise in the comfort of my own home! I split the session into cardio and strength training by doing 35 minutes on the elliptical and then full body weights – superset-style. It took about an hour in total.
Four Favorite Things about Working Out at Home
Pulling two completely random socks out of the “orphan sock bag” (you know, where all the socks that go into the dryer in pairs and come out all alone) instead of digging for two matches:
Looks good to me! I won’t mind!
Shamelessly Watching Days of Our Lives or sing my lungs out while watching MTV (no really, it’s actually music television before 6 in the morning)
No weird looks from gym-goers while belting out “TEEN – AGE DREAM..dadadadada TEEN- AGE DREAM…uhh.. dadadada” this time! 😉
Leaving all the equipment laying around until the end of the workout:
No, I’m in fact not using that at the moment. So WHAT! 😛
And lastly, going from this:
In less than 10 minutes.
I’m out of almond milk right now which is pretty much a key ingredients in ALL my breakfasts – oats, over night oat cereal, waffles, etc. So this morning, I had to think outside the
I think this is my first true all yogurt cereal combination:
There’s a boatload of ingredients in there, but almond milk isn’t one of them!
¾ c. plain Greek yogurt
½ c. pumpkin
1 tsp. pumpkin butter
½ scoop vanilla Jay Robb protein powder
1 T. raw almond butter
¼ c. oats
1 T. chia seeds
¼ c. granola
Yum! I think it may be making a regular occurrence now
Well it’s a busy day at the Big Insurance Company today, better get back to work!
What’s your favorite thing about working out from home – whether it’s strength training, a workout DVD, yoga, or using your own equipment? I’m also a big fan of waiting to brush my teeth until afterword and avoiding the outdoors when it’s cold and snowy!
