OUCH! My legs are so sore from yesterday’s weight workout. Those walking lunges really did a number on me! I have to move very slowly each time I sit down in my work chair or on the toilet (sorry to paint you that picture!) My lower body feels like one big bruise!
Luckily though, when I do cardio the day after a tough workout, the soreness does not bother me and actually makes me feel better!
This morning’s 2 mile walk with the dogs was quite nice since it was squirrel-free! It makes for a much more enjoyable walk when my dogs are not lunging at every creature!
After the sweaty walk (it was already 80 degrees at 7am!) I cooked up a typical, yet always delicious, breakfast of 2 eggs over easy, a whole grain english muffin, fresh strawberries, and almond milk to drink along with some black coffee and lots o’ water! The temperatures have been 100+ this week…it’s pretty awful!
Today’s workout was cardio-only to work out some soreness in my bootayyy. I started with 30 minutes on the Arc Trainer and finished with 15 minutes of incline walking on the treadmill. I cooled down for 5 minutes and foam rolled my legs a bit. Felt good!
I have such a pet peeve with Special K cereal commercials. One in particular shows a very thin girl eating special K cereal. The premise of the commercial is to say that when you are losing weight it’s great to have variety when it comes to your food.
Sure, that is true. Who wants to eat the same thing every day? However, do they have to use a stick thin woman who clearly has no weight to lose for this commercial?
Here is a clip of the commercial. I could only find it in another language…but, you get the idea 😉
Drives me nuts! It’s like we as women are expected to be miserable and to always be on a diet, no matter if we are at a healthy weight or not. It’s a terrible message to send…shame on you Kelloggs!
Unfortunately, “thin is in” (especially extreme thinness in the media) in our society and I don’t know when or if that will ever change. Personally, I never will strive to be too thin. I like looking healthy and fit by treating my body with respect.
Do you have any pet peeves with the media?
Do you workout if you are really sore?
