Today was VERY productive, regardless of how late I actually slept in. I know, I know! I said I would get out of bed early to take on the day and have that many more hours blah, blah, blah. I ended up getting out of bed at 9am, enjoyed my coffee, read up on my social media and left the house for the David Barton Gym at 11am. I missed my bus! I literally watched it leave me…. boohoo. The next one wasn’t going to come for another 16 minutes, so I decided to walk there. I beat the bus too! Typically I like to take the bus since 8th street is so damn busy, but in this case it seemed fitting to walk on my day off. Pretty stressful walk! Half the time there weren’t any cross walks or pedestrian lights, so it was a gamble not getting hit by cars coming on and off the freeway ramp. I like to live on the edge…..
Had a KILLER workout! Loved it, hamstrings are on FIRE! Incorporating the HIIT cardio plyometric body weight exercises was a plus, just what I needed. Really trying to lean out and keep that bulk at bay. Not to mention, the more out of breathe I feel, the harder I feel like I’m working. I feel I get the best results that way.
After killin’ it at the gym, I went and tanned at Seattle Sun Tan and I actually didn’t burn! Feel like I have a pretty good chance of getting a base color going without frying my skin first. After I went tanning I took a pair of Lululemons I scored at a consignment store into the Lulu store to get hemmed. Finally! I’ve been wanting to do that, I probably never would have if I didn’t do it today. I took the bus home and took Keyda for a walk BACK into Bellevue, this time going down 12th street. I took her to a park for a brief moment, but the owner of another older dog asked me to ‘call my dog’ because his dog likes doing her own thing…. too bad his dog was following mine, not the other way around. That sorta put me in a stink mood. She’s a good dog, sheesh! It’s a public park, other people are going to have their dogs off leash too….
Keyda and I walked back home and stopped by Whole Foods to pick up some apples for the apple pie I’m bringing for Thanksgiving at my Great Grandparents tomorrow. Right now my pie is cooling down, I hope it’s good! I forgot to peel half the apples, so hopefully the skins don’t make a huge difference…. OOoops! I’m excited for tomorrow! Going to stuff my face and spend time with the FamBam! You can bet I’m waking up bright and early to workout too. I actually rearranged my workouts so better suit my mass consumption of Thanksgiving food. Instead of doing chest, shoulders, and back tomorrow I’m picking up the pace and sweating more with cardio, core, and glutes. Yippeeee, make room for mashed tatters!
Anywho, I better call it a night, Happy Thanksgiving everybody! XOXO
