Now here’s a salad the 16-year-old version of Corrie Anne would have been totally disgusted by. Maybe even 25-year-old Corrie. What can I say? My taste buds are dying, but I’m getting better nutrients?
Broccoli slaw + chopped baby kale + apple + craisins + almonds + sesame seeds + balsamc + feta. I love broccoli slaw. And I’ve learned that if I chop kale or other leafy greens more finely, I don’t mind them so much.
What’s on that beautiful half sandwich, you ask? Man, my house is a regular Panera!
Allow me a HLB second to say that — I love this nut butter. The little coconut flavor is amazing. I brought Kevin a knife-full to taste because I’m such a good wife.
I did some Saturday morning yoga. You know who’s NOT a good yoga pal?
Boyd J Kreisel. I should have locked him in the bathroom, but he looked so peaceful in his little corner. I put in this Element Power Yoga first. I hated it. Lol. I feel like I always say that I like things on my blog. But in real life, there are a lot of things I don’t like (BANANAS!!! TUNA!! SCARY MOVIES!!). And I didn’t like that yoga dvd either. They tricked me. It had “power” in the name so I thought it would be a snappy little workout. Nope. The lady was humming at the beginning. I just was not a fan of that. I tried to give it more of a chance, but I didn’t want to.
So I put it the Aim True. Ahhh. That’s better. I like how she talks a lot about yoga + your sense of humor. And she wears head-to-toe-orange. Can’t go wrong with that!
Boyd learned what that mat was for!!!!
And then I did TurboFire Fire 45… Guys, I just have to say that I had my Bodybugg on (buggiest app ever – do not buy) and those dvds burn as much calories as RUNNING!!!!! I was really surprised. I shouldn’t be because you are bouncing all over the place like crazy! Anyways, it was a good workout to bring back on a hot day. Man, I love the music on those dvds. I didn’t even crank it as loud as I wanted to because Kevin was doing homework.
And then I spent 2 hours here:
I talked to Mom and spent the whole time walking a loop up the stairs, down the hall, down the stairs, repeat in my apartment complex (too sunny outside!!). That burned about 500 calories. Sweet, right? I should have worn my Garmin. Haha.
Unbelievably tough workout. Let me tell you. I can’t believe I’m saying this but Busters > Burpees!
Like a weighted burpee + a squat thrust.
Every minute on the minute for 20 minutes complete:
6 busters 15/20 ea.
20 minutes straight of those!!!! 15 pounds??? I knew that wasn’t going to happen!! I tried 8. I completed all the reps, but I had to pause during the second half. My arms were super shaky when I finished. I’m not letting Kevin off the hook. He did 12 rounds before he conveniently had to go answer a mortgage-related email. Haha.
And then we walked/talked for 2 miles. I think walking and talking is UNDERRATED. It’s the perfect way to kind of de-stress and talk things out on a Friday afternoon. Loved it.
And just talking about all those workouts makes me need snack pronto!!
But first a little question:
Do you drink tea? If so, what kind? I’m convinced we could become tea drinkers. At least one a week, I try to convince Kevin we should buy it. He eventually wears down and says “yes.” And then I’m like,”no, we won’t like it.” And I put it back. This particular invigorating blend almost got me last night. Or do bloggers just like coffee? That seems possible.
Do you ever walk & talk? It’s like free exercise.
P.S. Go try a buster. I dare you!
