I know it’s Tuesday. I’m a day late. Yesterday was kind of crazy though (I’ll share more in a few weeks). I was busy all day and ended up not getting home until almost 9:30pm which is pretty much my bed time. This past weekend was really nice and low-key though.
Friday night we met some friends at the Flying Saucer. Unfortunately they didn’t arrive until about 9:30pm after I had my one beer and my one root beer and if you’ll notice above, that is pretty much my bed time so Scott had to drag my old lady butt home at 10:30pm and put me to bed.
Saturday was pretty uneventful, so much so that I can’t even really remember what happened that day. I think I took a nap and we went to Target. Oh yes, and I made root beer flavored cupcakes! AMAZING. I will share pictures and where I got the recipe tomorrow (I have another recipe for you today so keep reading!)
Sunday morning I woke up cleaned up a little around the apartment and walked in on this:
Cats are funny.
Then I proceeded to the gym. I was able to knock out 1 mile walking on the treadmill (don’t be jealous of my mad walking skills) and a leg workout. My leg workout was pretty good and consisted of 3 sets of the following:
- Superset of 15 squats with weights and calf raises
- Superset of 15 lunges (each leg) with weights and 30 second wall sits
- Superset of 15 Leg extensions and 15 Leg curls on the machine with weight
- 15 leg presses on the machine with weights
- 15 dead-lifts with weights
It felt so great to workout again. So much so that at 6:30pm Sunday night I made Scott drop me off at the track thing and I rode my bike for 10 miles! Yep…I’m forcing my leg to suck it up and get better. So far it seems to be doing okay. There is still pain but it’s getting more manageable.
I should also note that I will not be running on that particular track when I can run again. I rode past a snake on Sunday. It was pretty dark and I can’t see well in the dark so I was already past it by the time I realized what it was. It’s a good thing too or I would have PASSED OUT and then it would have eaten me. (Yes I know that is irrational but those things freak me out!)
In between the gym and my bike ride, I took a nap, watched the TEXANS beat the Titans (YAY!!!!) and made the most delicious pumpkin spiced latte EVER.
I followed this pumpkin spiced latte recipe from Love Veggies and Yoga and made fresh whipped cream to go on top. I have followed this up with 2 more since and I plan to continue drinking them every. single. morning. until the end of November..maybe even December. It is seriously that good. Tastes just like Starbucks and is better for you. YUM.
What did you guys do?
