Friday Afternoon Workout

Hey everyone!  Sorry for my absence all week.  After a two week break from teaching, I forgot how exhausting it can be!  I've been coming home each day not feeling like doing much of anything at all.

Today's Training
I went straight to the gym after school to complete Workout B of Best Body Bootcamp.  I did Strength Workout A on Monday and Cardio Interval A on Tuesday, but I took Wednesday and Thursday off due to complete laziness.  It happens to the best of us, right?

Workout B was a core workout that worked on balance and stability, as well.  There were so many exercises in plank position, so I know I'll be feeling it tomorrow!

Despite my mid-week laziness, I'm pretty happy with myself for getting a workout in on a Friday afternoon.  Not something that I usually do, but I feel like it was a great way for me to shake off the stress of the week and head in to the weekend feeling worry free.

Weekend Workout plan: get in Workout C tomorrow, then run 11 miles for my half marathon training on Sunday.

Diet Tip of the Day
I found a new-to-me tasty snack at the grocery store the other day!
Veggie Straws from Sensible Portions!!  I've always wanted to try veggie chips or something like them, and these caught my eye in the store.  I picked them up, and boy are they delicious!  I couldn't stop eating them.  They're light, crunchy, taste like chips, but they're made with tomatoes and spinach (in addition to potato).  I happened to pick up the bag with the Zesty Ranch flavoring on them, which made them that much better.

Definitely a snack I recommend, and one that I will continue to add to my grocery list!

Well, time for Joe and I to head to our favorite little Mexican restaurant for our Friday dinner tradition.  Have a great start to your weekend!
