40 Days Fit - Day 34

For the past 2 weeks or so, since the weather has been nice, I have been finding the need to go outside for lunch and enjoy the day. I really hate sitting in the office all day. I get antsy, tired, I feel lethargic and I hate missing out on the beautiful day that is playing hide and seek with me past the office walls. For lunch, I grab a yogurt, apple and sometimes a granola bar and head out to the closest, convenient park with benches. It amazes me that I am always alone. How can people lock themselves inside all day. Look at this beautiful day!

After finishing up with work, I headed out to the gym for a now once-weekly session with Bing. It started off with doing 40 yard runs with the kettle ball, then running 5 yards and hopping for a bit into a lunge, then squats and curls, then what we both call the "dead body" lift and push for another 80 yards. My hamstrings feel like they are going to pop if I bend over. My arms and legs are so sore, and it feels great. I know I'll take back those words tomorrow - I'm running for about 45 minutes in the morning - but for now, I know I put in some effort. 

When I got home, I tried my new experiment - sauteed kale. It did not work out well. I mixed it with spinach and cooked it in the same way. It did not work. Look at this pathetic kale- it's all brown and burnt (and smelled that way too). I need to try this again. Maybe tomorrow I'll get it right. Once I find a good cooking method, I'll be sure to share. Until then, don't do this! Night y'all!

  1. What a great workout. I wish my trainer would do more creative stuff like this. I think I need to look into getting a different trainer.
