This mornings workout was all strength training and not just regular strength training but a lot of strength training. Did I mention I did strength training today. 700 reps to be exact plus 3 minutes of wall squats. Three minutes may not sound like a long time but put your back against a wall, sit as though there is a chair there but there is not a chair and hold. It's tough. I went easy on the legs today, so I didn't use weights with leg exercises because I have an 8 mile run to tackle tomorrow and my first race of the year on Sunday. It's the Super 5K (http://runsuperbowl.com/). I will tell you about it on Monday. So I burned a mere 166 calories today but they were well earned calories and 38% were calories from fat so that's not all bad, right?
I'm looking forward to the Super Bowl this weekend and to be completely honest I have no preference who wins or loses. I am like many people, I like the commercials and half time show. Granted, I like watching the game but I have no vested interest in either team. But we will watch and I will be making Pepperoni Rolls (http://whataboutpie.blogspot.com/2010/10/pepperoni-rolls.html). Is it clean eating, no, but I am allowing it for the Super Bowl and they look very tasty.
Have a great weekend!
Question of the day:
I take somethings a little too seriously
This question speaks right to my resolutions for the year! Try new things, break out of my box. I take MANY things to seriously. I like things to be a particular way and if they are not I am agitated. I like my house a certain way and when clutter starts to happen (and in my mind clutter is probably not even close to clutter) however I am stressed and irritated. I know I need to lighten up and take a joke and not stress the small stuff. I am a work in progress and I truly am trying to tackle some of that this year.
One of the biggest things I think I need to work on in the "taking things to seriously department" is with my kids. For instance, when it is bedtime, to me it is bedtime. No goofing around, get ready, get in bed, I read and lights out. Then enters Dad. Dad is great, a giant kid and I love him but when Dad is around silliness happens. This gets me irritated because well it's bedtime and they need their sleep and they have school. If they go to bed too late then they are cranky and I have to deal with that. However, there should be silly time (not all the time) but there should be and I should join in the wrestling match or the silly talk or whatever may be happening and make the memories. But I don't, because it's bedtime. I am the first to say, life's too short but I don't always follow that mantra, but in 2013 I am trying too.
