Anyone else ever play “Power Hour” in college? Did anyone ever actually make it through? I feel like I never lasted long. Usually I’d say “screw it” at some point and drink when I felt like it. Even early on I wasn’t a big fan of structure… go figure. :p
However, I had my power hour at the gym last night. 28 minutes on the elliptical. Why 28? Who knows… it just felt like a good number to end on. Weights. More weights. Stairmill (or as Mon would say, “stair demon”) for 16. And then ending with the ab work. Normally I like to throw a mile or so on the treadmill in there as well, but the gym was strangely crowded and I didn’t feel participating in the “who’s gonna jump on the good ‘mill first when this dude gets off” game that was being played.
Plus I had a Thirsty Thursday date with Mon. We gossiped as we drank a couple Goose Islands… what’s new?
I honestly don’t have much to say today. Knowing me and my mouth, that’s kind of strange. It’s my rest day. Hopefully work will fly. And I’ll be staying with a friend in Wrigleyville so we can drive together to the Girls on the Run 5k early tomorrow morning because we’re both volunteering.
We may be getting up early tomorrow, but we’re still planning to go out for a drink or two to watch the Hawks game somewhere- gotta show Chicago pride, right?
So with that, happy Friday! Here’s how I started mine out:I once again broke out the dessert oatmeal! A little Special K underneath, coconut, peanut butter, and white chocolate chips. And this is how it made me feel:I hope this is how I continue to feel about my breakfast. I think the milk might be starting to get bad. Ok, it could have been bad… but lets not dwell on that fact. I clearly need to go grocery shopping.
Have a good weekend, kids!
