During my lunch break on Tuesday I decided to workout. Since I work the early shift (6-2:30pm) working out during the lunch hour works best for me. There’s no way I want to wake up earlier than 5AM to workout (gross) and working out in the evening is hard for me. I lose all motivation to exercise when I go home. Lunch time workouts have been a great solution!
However, on Tuesday I felt kind of blah when I was going through my workout. Nothing sounded appealing to me. The thought of spending 30-minutes on a cardio machine was almost depressing. I guess I am still thinking of my lovely beach runs from last week! Transitioning from the beautiful sand and sun to the treadmill has been tough. Instead of staying on one machine, I decided to do a bit of everything.
First, I started with a slow jog (5.0 speed) on the treadmill for 10 minutes to warm up. Then I completed a short circuit of weights to keep me moving:
I finished up my 30-minute workout with 5 minutes on the AMT (level 5) and 5 minutes on the upright bike (level 6, RPM 85-95).
To be honest, I wasn’t feeling this workout. I couldn’t shake the blah feeling. But it was something and I am happy I moved my body! The positive to having blah workouts is that it makes me really appreciate the times I have amazing workouts and feel great. Can’t win em’ all!
Luckily Taco Tuesday wasn’t a blah meal! I couldn’t wait to cook up the goods and dig in!
Something about Taco Tuesday makes me want a margarita real bad. Thank goodness I had some Skinny Girl Margarita left in the fridge!
Looks like my Pizza Friday Uniform has become my Taco Tuesday outfit as well! 😉
Tonight’s Taco Tuesday included a mixture of chicken, canned corn, and canned black beans seasoned and sauteed with salt, pepper, taco seasoning, garlic powder, chili powder and olive oil:
I just love using items from my pantry. I always try to have beans, corn, and other canned goodies for nights like these.
Dinner came together in no time and Andy and I were ready to feast!
Another Taco Pile made it into my belly and I was a happy girl. I was so happy I went back for seconds and devoured a bowl of ice cream while catching up on the Bachelorette (this is when Andy and I make our separate ways for a bit 😉 ). It was a great Tuesday night!
How often do you have a “blah” workout?
