Helloooo! Nothing like having a three day weekend to make the week go by faster. I can't believe it's already Wednesday!
I really suck at the whole "WIAW thing" lately. I keep forgetting to take pictures of my food! Not that any of it is that interesting...but still. Oh FYI I got SOOO super burnt yesterday on my hike. Like really burnt. It felt fantastic. I mean I know I know it's bad for my skin but I like the feeling of being burnt...it's fine.
I don't have a bunch of food pictures but after a lovely Trader Joe's run I got some AWESOME food....specifically this chocolate mint Cliff bar (actually I bought 5...) and chocolate coconut water! I loooove chocolate coconut water but it's pricey...TJ's is really cheap though. Score!
They also have this INCREDIBLE Japanese fried rice with tofu and veggies that I literally can't stop eating, and pho which tastes super close to the real thing. If I put it in a regular bowl you probably wouldn't even know it wasn't authentic. Go buy all of these things immediately! Yes? Yes.
We had perfect cuddle time yesterday after my hike....I just can't stand it.
So tonight I finally did another actual workout that wasn't yoga :) What I noticed on my hike yesterday is that I have pretty much completely lost all and any endurance I had. I'm not thrilled about that. I don't do cardio almost at all anymore and although I do HIIT a couple of times a week I'm not lifting heavy constantly like I used to. I've been doing a mix of HIIT and yoga. I'm very happy with that but I do miss heavy lifting workouts as well too. Going to the gym isn't an option these days so I did a great body-weight workout and really felt it. Just one set through....looks easy but looks can be deceiving :)
There's something refreshing about a workout that doesn't require any type of equipment other than my brain! I'm going to try this one again in a week and see if I can up my time.
So I have some exciting news...the awesome guys at the Spartan Race are giving me a free race entrance for one lucky reader! I'll have the deets tomorrow. Deets? Sorry. Lameeeee. Lame.
