Remeber how we talked about doing doubles yesterday?
It was kind of ironic that I wrote a post about that because my sister asked me to join her that night for a gym session right after I posted it. Even though I already ran in the morning, I couldn’t turn her down. There was no running going on but a whole lot of stretching, lifting and ellipticalling.
We have come to learn that our inflexibility and veiny hands (okay, mine are way worse than hers) just run in the family. I used to believe that the lack of a calf muscle was just in our genes (ahem….mother) but looks like my sister was blessed with non-chicken legs calves. Or maybe it is the fact that she does calf raises and the only time I do those is when I am trying to reach the top cupboard for my secret stash of cookies.
We lifted our upper body and every time I type using my pinky finger while writing this post I can already tell my triceps are sore.
Studies prove that exercise can make you smarter and I attribute that to the brilliant idea that we came up with while doing cardio. We are going to go on a run on Saturday morning together. I kept telling my sis that we have to take it SLOW while I am still recovering from the marathon. We came up with the brilliant idea to invent a chip that goes into your Garmin and if you go faster than your recovery pace it will shock you. This would solve our weird desire to always go faster than we are supposed to and prevent many injuries in the future.
The temperatures are dropping and my workout clothese were a little too damp and would probably turn into ice if we went for our normal post-workout ice cream date and so we have now switched to hot chocolate.
Mine is on the right. I always add steamed milk to my hot chocolate and why is froth so much fun?
Gotta love late night, sitting in the parking lot with the seat heaters on and the heater set to 99 degrees.
You know that you have built up some serious hot chocolate calluses on your tongue when your hands get burned from holding onto the cup but your tongue thinks that the hot chocolate it is just the right temperature.
You too can be able to drink extremely hot chocolate without any pain when you have spent 100′s of dollars at 7-11 on hot chocolate perfecting this skill.
Phone update: It has nearly been one month since getting my phone and I have yet to crack my iphone screen. This is a new record for me, maybe now I have proven that I could take good care of a puppy.
Billy and I used to eat separate things most nights. Now we almost always eat the same thing. This makes me really happy for some reason. Probably because his food always looks better than mine but now we have the same thing so I don’t go to bed angry because of my food jealousy issues.
We had chicken and rice soup with a grilled cheese panini. Meal cost: .78 cents per person. Okay, I made that up but it was pretty dang cheap.
Are you naturally flexible or inflexible? How often do you stretch?
-Maybe 3 times a week……that silly thing in my head that says to run another mile rather than take time to stretch really needs to change.
Do you and your significant other eat the same things or different things? Do you eat the same portion or more or less than the other person?
-Billy and I eat the same portion…..except for dessert, he couldn’t out eat me in sugar if his life depended on it.
What temperature is it RIGHT NOW where you live?
-I write my posts at night so it is currently 27 degrees.
