Happy Thursday everyone! Did you watch the first NFL game of the season last night? Now that I am in 2 fantasy leagues I get more excited about games now…even though none of my players were playing last night :(… But I still enjoyed a few drinks with our friends at one of our favorite restaurant/bar, Carolina Ale House. Usually Tailgating is the only thing I care about when it comes to football season. What is better than tailgating in perfect fall weather with your friends & family?
What team do you root for?
Yesterday was a rough day at work. We were very busy and on top of that we were short staffed so I treated my self to 2 Blue Moons at Carolina Ale House…really hit the spot 🙂 I am such a light weight so those 2 did me real good haha
So I am starting to believe that someone does not want me to go to Hot Yoga. Yesterday I got the times mixed up and missed my class and then today they were closed because of Obama coming into town….I was really looking forward to a good stretch. I did not run this morning because my knee was starting to hurt from my 2 run days in a row and then running around at work all day yesterday. I developed runner’s knee about a year ago and I do not want to injure it again! It was hard not being able to run for a couple of months.
I decided to use this opportunity to go through some others blogs and check out some of there circuit workouts that they have tried. Chocolate Covered Crunches had a cool one that I have never tried before. It consisted of doing cardio intervals during the duration of an entire song. I followed all the exercises but I switched up some of the songs. I chose:
1. Maroon 5 – Fortune Teller Squats & Lunges
2. Maroon 5 – Doin Dirt High Knees & Jumping Jacks
3. Imagine Dragons – It’s Time Speed Skaters & Mountain Climbers
4. Head Automatica – Beating Hearts Baby Squats & Lunges
5. Sun City – The Follower High Knees & Jumping Jacks
6. Mumford & Sons – Little Lion Man Speed Skaters & Mountain Climbers
7. Ace of Base – It’s A Beautiful Life Squats & Lunges
This Entire Circuit took me about 30 mins to do.
I continued my workout with a few core exercises.
100 Russian Twist
100 Bicycle Crunches
1 min Plank
By this time “Steven” (My Stomach) was growling at me so I fed him some Oatmeal with plain yogurt and a banana mixed together. This is always my go-to breakfast when I want to eat right away.
Not only is the weather started to shift now but so is Chewbacca’s coat. He has 2 coats of hair and he is started to lose his summer/puppy coat. I spent about 20 minutes brushing him out and it came out SO FLUFFY after 🙂 He is such a good puppy!
I hope today at work is not as crazy..wish me luck 🙂
