I've got a bit of a sore throat today. :( But tea and LOTS of water are helping me deal with that!
So Jay and I decided that we were going to quit our gym membership to cut back on some expenses. My apartment has a full gym that we can work out at when we want the free weights/treadmill type of experience. Our last day for our gym membership is April 30th! And since we haven't really worked out since the beginning of March, we decided that we would take full advantage of our gym until it expires. So on Monday I started some weight training and yesterday I actually got on the treadmill and ran. Nothing crazy. I'm sure I pulled my hamstring training for my 5K at the beginning of March. So I walked 5 minutes, ran 10 minutes, walked 5 minutes, ran 10 minutes, and cooled down with an additional 5 minutes. Before I ran I warmed up withe a 20 minutes hill climb on the elliptical machine. It was fabulous! Jay was still lifting when I got done working out, so I cooled down with some light stretching.
I also started school last week. This is a huge transition for me. I never knew what I wanted to do when I graduated from high school, so I never went to college. Well now that I've figured out what would make me happy as a career path, I decided to get myself educated! :) It was a bit overwhelming last week and I was kind of weighed down with homework last night, but I was able to buckle down after the gym last night and I'm feeling much better about my math class. Ahhhh the benefits of working out! :D
To recap on some eats, I've been rocking a lovely salad. And instead of adding dressing I put in feta cheese. The flavor of this cheese was enough to complete the salad and made for a very yummy lunch! With tomato soup! :)
I think that grapefruits are in season as well this time of year, because there was a 5 for $1 deal that we scored on Sunday night! I got some neat grapefruit spoons from Women's Fitness and was trying 'em out that morning. I think I would rather just peel my grapefruit like and orange and enjoy! To eat their own I guess!!
Also a sweet sale item from Safeway was this Pomtea. I've never tried and Pom juice, but have heard alot about it's benefits. Let me tell you this was DELISH!
And lastly, I finally got most of my music uploaded onto my computer. And while working away I snacked! Hummus and pretzels addict right here! So fantastic!
I'm off to read about of the Chelsea Handler book, Are You There Vodka?! It's been a light, funny read so far. And yes I finished Eat, Love, Pray. I enjoyed it so much I had a copyed mailed to my mother. :) Check it out if you haven't!!
Have a super Wednesday!
