Skinny Dipping?!

My weekend with the family in the Twin Cities was nice. Playing some Guitar Hero, watching Sioux Hockey at Joe Sensors, a little relaxing, a lot of shopping, a lot of laughs, and some great food. I can't complain. I think I am still full from dinner at Buca's last night. I was even able to sneak in a run yesterday at my sis' gym with her and my mom. I had already done my long run of 2.5 miles on Thursday (according to the Jeff Galloway Plan Week 4), so my goal was to just do a couple miles and some lifting. My knees were a bit sore from wearing heels the previous two days, one of them spent walking through a mall for a few hours.

As for the week to come, I am thankful that it is only a 4 day week, with a jean's day to come on Friday. Wednesday and Thursday consist of the CPR/First Aid Training I mentioned in previous posts. That will make for long days, but if everything goes the way I want, I will be completing the majority, if not all, workouts in the AM. Well see how this weeks goes. If I am lucky, I will start a new "thing" and continue to do most of my workouts in the AM. Why not?

Okay. I postponed my workout today until this evening because I wanted to run 2 miles and then get into the pool when it opened for laps at 7:45. I ran, did a bit of lifting and then headed to the locker room to get ready for the pool. I noticed when I reached into my bag that not only did I not have my flip-flops, there was no suit to be seen.... and no skinny dipping is allowed.

I had no desire to go back to the treadmill as it was hard enough to find one available prior to my run. So I just left. It was okay though because I had to pick up some necessities at the grocery store for the week; you know, milk, yogurt, apples, bananas, oatmeal, grapes, etc. Did I mention I have moved over to the dark side? I am now eating oatmeal in the morning for breakfast... I used to gag at the thought of it, but have forced myself to get used to the consistency/texture. It's not too bad!

Today's workout:
ORN: 2 miles
11:12 min./mile
Lift: Legs

Have a great week, y'all!

Damn.. you're eating healthy! I'm the least fussy eater around - but oatmeal and cottage cheese make me cringe! How did you ever get used to it?!

Let's just say that my firt complete bowl consisted of having my water bottle right by my side.

One bite oatmeal... one chuck of water. And repeat until all is gone!

Yum! Oatmeal! Add some dried cherries, slivered almonds & a tiny bit of raw honey. Mmm!

i'm sure they would have made an exception for you at the pool ;)

oatmeal is yum! add nuts or blueberries or dried cranberries or bananas. it's never the same meal twice!

Did I miss the post about you picking a Galloway plan? Very cool! Now, about this oatmeal... What's the secret to eating mush :-)

Danielle said...

Oatmeal is a no no to me...I like it in cookies...does that count?

Doesn't it suck when you get to the gym and realized you forgot something. I think you should've gone for the skinny dip!!

The secret of oatmeal is what you put into it!
Have a great week!
Take Care

You had me at skinny dipping. :-) Nice job on eating better. I like oatmeal, but I rarely take the time to eat breakfast during the work week. Usually it's a cereal bar for me.

Good luck with the a.m. workouts and don't forget your suit next time. Enjoy the 4 day week!

Nice workout. I like eating oatmeal for breakfast, esp. in the winter because it's warm!

Krista said...

OK weird; I was at Joe Sensor's Saturday night to watch hockey as well ... in Roseville, though, not Mpls. Crazy small world.
Good luck with the morning workouts!

I am too lazy to make oatmeal for breakfast. By the time I get the kids fed I am usually grabbing a granola bar or a banana. :>P

I started my volunteer hours in the Sp. Ed. classes!
