Yesterday started out bright and early with a 30 minute elliptical warm-up at the gym followed by a strength training workout focusing on my legs. I must admit that after running 7 miles the day before…my legs were a tad bit tender. After the workout there was plenty of foam rolling to ease some of that muscle soreness.
I then came home, quickly (very quickly) showered, got ready, and whipped up three egg whites, and apple and a tablespoon of peanut butter. I forgot how much a really like apple and peanut butter…it seems like ages since I have last had it.
Brian and I then headed out to get my car fixed. It had been shaking a lot while I was driving it and making this weird popping noise, and the engine light was on so Brian and I decided it was time to take her to the shop.
While my car was at the shop, Brian and hung out with his mom at Einstein’s bagels. They enjoyed onion bagels with veggie cream cheese while I sipped on an iced coffee.
It was then time to head to the outlet mall. Brian and I are going to be taking our engagement photos in about two weeks! (I can’t believe it is coming so soon!) and Brian wanted to pick up a couple of new shirts. I have been wearing the same shoes for running, teaching group fitness, and just about everything under the sun since October so I was in the market for a new pair of group fitness shoes and a separate pair of running shoes.
The pair of shoes that I got for group fitness I really love. They are the Adidias Fly By W. According to the information provided online they are very breathable and for a person with a neutral foot position (that’s me!) that wants lightweight cushioning.
I wore them on a walk with Brian last night and thought they felt great! The pair that I bought for running I have read a lot of mixed reviews about. They are more for someone who needs a very sturdy/stiff shoe who overpronates. I don’t fall into that category and don’t want to risk being in pain when I run. I am going to think about it a bit more, but I may return them.
We then went to pick up my car, which she now works like a charm, and then got back to the apartment to start packing.
It really wasn’t that bad once we finally got started. Now, I am just ready to get everything boxed up and be done with the whole process.
While Brian and I were unloading the drawers and cabinets in our living room Brian found something…the last Easter egg!
I hid that one 😉 Must have been a pretty good hiding spot if it took us two months to find it!
We then had leftovers from the night before for dinner and headed out to walk around the city. The weather is so nice and warm, there was no way we couldn’t take advantage of the beautiful night.
Today was another early day for me. I started by working on another component to my “special project.” Here is a hint as to what part of this project is.
Buckwheat pancakes for breakfast with a special blueberry sauce. They were both delicious and tasted great together.
Now, off to teach a spinning class and pack pack pack!
I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!
