I absolutely DETEST sitting at a desk. I’m itching to move, absolutely bored out of my mind, I have exhausted all of my projects. I have been reduced to staring blankly out the Lower Lobby EBC doors, wishing I could be running home already.
Such a beautiful overcast day, perfect running conditions.
3 1/2 more hours….. you got this, Jess!
I’ve had an ongoing headache for the past week. I thought it was because I ran out of coffee at home, but I think the true underlying reason is due to sitting at a desk. I have been skating by the past month setting all of our meeting spaces. I WAAAAAY rather be moving around setting rooms even if it means dealing with the huge ridiculous, dangerous metal cart we use to store support. Sitting so low (so my midget feet can touch the floor) but raising my arms so high to reach the keyboard puts so much strain on my neck and shoulders. Get me outtaaaaa’ here!
On another note, I had a decent Monday morning. I woke up, got outta bed, and went to the gym! I did 3 ZSHRED workouts that involved jump roping, weights, HIIT, and cardio to shock the muscles and keep my body guessing. 3 ZSHRED’s took me about an hour, so I finished off with 20 minutes on the Spin Bike and 15 minutes on the Stairmaster. My hamstrings and glutes are killing me!
I went home to practice posing and get ready for work, today I work the 10am to 6:30pm shift. My dog was so amped to see me when I got home, naturally I was super amped to see her! I was playing with her when I walked through the door when I got a big whiff of delicious peanut butter. What the eff? Why do you smell like peanut butter?! I noticed the cabinet I keep my peanut butter in was open…. and my jar of peanut butter was laying on the living room floor…. clearly busted open. *SERIOUSLY?!* I really don’t want to punish youuuu, whyyyy?! Not something I look forward to on a Monday morning: punching my dog in the face and a wasted jar of peanut butter.
Poor thing. I punished her and threw her in the bathroom on time-out 😦
I was able to fit in a wee bit of posing though, caught one DECENT video and uploaded it to my YouTube. Really gotta figure out how to make better use of my YouTube account, definitely unorganized. This new video was much better than my first, need to work on smiling and trying to keep my ‘hanging arm’ relaxed during my poses. I added a lot more sass, but kept it classy. Lemme know what you think! Feedback much appreciated!
This weekend I plan on setting up some time with Natalie to help me out with my posing, as well as FINALLY getting my BF%! I’m surprised I haven’t found this out yet! I measured my waist and hips this weekend and was pretty happy with a 2cm decrease in both areas. Yippee, shedding fat, maintaining muscle, and getting stronger! Very, very happy with the leg results. They are definitely toning up and my butt is slooooowly but surely lifting! Whoop whoop for cardio! I’m so glad I actually ENJOY cardio!
I’ve actually been contemplating what my next race should be. I really want to compete in another Half Marathon this Summer. I would LOVE to do Oktoberfest again, mainly for the brews and dank ass pizza, but I want to try a different course. Seriously can’t wait to eat like an endurance athlete again! I’m gonna stock up on Costco muffins and log miles like a maniac! I miss actually NEEDING to stuff my face with carbs, Mac n’ Cheese, pasta, sandwiches, potato chips, and SALT! Costco shopping will be a whole new level of awesome…..
That’s not for a loooooong while though….
In the mean time, I am finding healthy alternatives for sweet treats that I enjoy! Yesterday during meal prep I decided to make Oatmeal Peanut Butter Protein No Bake Cookies. They turned out DELICIOUS! My very own recipe!
Very yummy recipe! Makes 20 small cookies with 120 calories each, 10 grams of carbs, 7 grams of fat, 6 grams of protein, and 6 grams of sugars. Not bad, definitely satisfies the sweet tooth craving!
Anywho, I better go back to being a good employee. 2 1/2 more hours until I’m outta here! Can’t wait to run home and eat some delicious spicy garlic chicken, cinnamon sweet potatoes, and baked brussel sprouts! Yummmm! Seriously though….. YUM. $3.99 for a big bag of brussel sprouts at Costco?! Hell yeah!
MMMmmmk bye! Happy Monday, hope you guys have a super week 🙂
