I knew yesterday that I wouldn’t want to work out today, so I planned ahead and called my cousin to go to the gym with me. He is somebody who lives in a perpetual state of feeling like he needs to go to the gym, so I knew he wouldn’t flake out on me on Saturday morning. Just as I figured he text me at 9 am on the dot, saying “Wake Up, let’s go.” I probably would have gotten out of bed right then had we not stayed out until 2 in the morning (I didn’t plan that part so well, lol). Nonetheless, I had to drag myself out of bed, put on some clothes and go to the gym. I’m supposed to be training for a half marathon, and there’s no way to sugar coat it, the truth is, I haven’t been running. So, I went upstairs to the indoor track above the guys playing basketball. It was so humid; it was almost unsafe to run. So I figured we could just walk and we were sweating after only 10 minutes. While we were walking I got a call from Lyle, my personal trainer. He wanted to know when I was coming back to book camp class. I took great pride in telling him I was at the gym; I was so happy that I wasn’t at home eating ice cream or something when he called. Anyway, since it was so hot, we decided to just go down to the weight and machine room. We got on the elliptical machines next to each other for 20 minutes. Then, I got on the treadmill, which normally I don’t do, but because the track was so unbearable, I didn’t really have a choice. I put on my Week 2 podcast since I had already been working out for half an hour. It was a killer, but I did the running intervals for about 20 minutes. The treadmill is not as good as real running on the pavement, but I like that it keeps you running at a steady pace. After the treadmill I was good and funky. My cousin said, nope keep going we have 10 more minutes. So I got on the Exercise Ball and did sit ups and balancing exercises. I got in a really good workout today, and running just feels good. I’m trying hard to get back to eating healthy. I had a granola bar for breakfast and I went back to that place Crazy Bowls and Wraps and got a Steak fajita bowl for lunch. While I was there I sampled some Quinoa (pronounced Keen-wa). I’ve read about it in nutrition books, its a whole grain with protien. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either. It tastes like brown rice with a funny texture. The steak fajita bowl was awesome. After lunch, I had to go to work to help out on a big case that’s heating up. After work I went to my sister’s salon and got all cute, and that was pretty much my day.
