I woke up this morning at 4:45. This was a “little” early for me seeing as I went to bed after 10 p.m. last night. I don’t do so well when I go to bed past 9:30 p.m. Ideally, when getting up so early to workout, it’d be best to be in bed by 9 p.m. but ya know…that’s probably never gonna happen! Especially in the summer, with the long days and sunlight shinning in your windows! J
We went to the fitness center and first did Ab Ripper X. That was good to get us started. Killer, but doable! After that, we both hopped onto a machine, her on the bike, me on the elliptical. We did about 33 minutes of hard-core cardio. It was great.
I went home and went to text and realized I didn’t have my phone. Eek! I hate that feeling don’t you? I looked all over my place, nothing. I dug through the bag that I brought to the gym, nothing. So I figured I had to have left it in the elliptical cup holder where I stow it while working out. I got in my car and drove up to the fitness center, and ran to check that cup holder. Nope – not there. Oh boy, now I was really panicking. It’s one thing to lose your cell phone, it’s another thing to lose your iPhone which costs about $600 to replace!
I drove back home, looked all over again, searched everywhere and still could not find it. And you know what stinks about loosing your phone, how do you even call or text someone to call you to see if you can hear it ringing? You can’t!
I thought I must have lost it on the walk back from the fitness center (we had walked). I started to head out and got half way there when I realized I didn’t have my key to let me in! GRRRRR!!! I went back home, grabbed the key and set off on foot again. By this time I was really freaking out. I hadn’t showered, hadn’t eaten, was running late for work and couldn’t call to tell anyone, and didn’t want to go to work without finding this $600 piece of metal I had lost!!
This time I ran to the fitness center. I was scanning the ground, and could see nothing. I kept praying, “Lord PLEASE help me find this thing!”
I got into the fitness center and just started scanning all over the room. BAM! There it was, sitting on a weight machine I had never used right next to my empty water bottle! DUH! I remembered, I took it out of the cup holder and set it there when I went to clean off the elliptical.
Whew, I was so relieved. I tell ya though…WHAT A MORNING! My neighbors have to think I’m crazy for seeing me run back and forth, back and forth like a lunatic this morning!
I think I am considering this morning “two workouts for the price of one!” J
For lunch today I tried something new. Now it may sound a little crazy, but trust me…it’s good.
I took about approximately a cup of Trader Joe’s Healthy 8 chopped veggie mix with a couple of Tbsps of Trader Joes organic humus and a can of Starkist low sodium albacore tuna!
Mmmm! High protein, low carb, and very satisfying!
Evening of Pie…or Not!
Now, I’m sitting at Grand Traverse Pie Company waiting for some ladies from church. It’s our Women’s Ministry’s “event” tonight…meeting here for dinner, coffee, PIE. 😦 I will have to pass on the pie. How is that possible when they look like this…
I am thinking I’m in trouble! Good thing I brought a protein bar (yeah right!!!)
Have a great Friday night all!!
