Sunday workout: 2 hours elliptical
Monday workout: 50-55 minutes elliptical, 15 minutes strength training (+30-40 minutes of bike fi you count my commute to work and then to the grocery store later at night)
Ughh, what a hot, miserable bike ride home today. I hate this weather. I like 20 degree weather over 90 degree humid weather. It makes me cranky, tired, and lazy. How do people survive in hot environments? Screw Arizona of Florida when it comes time for me to retire….I’m moving to Alaska!
I don’t even now why I took the time to curl my hair this morning, because this is what it looked like by the time I got home today:
And it didn’t look that much better either when I arrived at work this morning.
And to make matters worse, this happened to me:
I was trying to get every last drop of a chocolate shake, which ended up on my white coat instead of in my mouth. Classy.
After I go home from work, I was too hot and tired to move from my couch, so I finished the rest of the Olympic gymnastic trials that I had recorded and started watching the day before.
I love, love, love gymnastics. It is probably my favorite Olympic sport to wach (although I enjoy watching any and all Olympic events). The level of physical and mental strength these gymnasts have truly amaze me.
I thought the girl that won, Gabby Douglas, was incredible and had so much spunk, and I loved her humbleness when the reporter was interviewing her at the end.
Watching the Olympic trials got me re-energized, and I couldn’t wait to get downstairs and train like an Olympian on the elliptical. I was convinced that if they ever allowed the elliptical as an Olympic sport, I would most definitely win ; )
While working out downstairs, I was impressed by the 65 pound weights Dean was lifitng:
I decided I wanted to be cool like him:
Yeah….not so much. Instead, it just looks like I’m constipated and trying really really hard to have a shi*. Another classy look pulled off by me today.
Favorite Olympic sport to watch?? Any athletes you’re particularly excited to watch?
