I Woke Up at 9am and Haven't Quit Sweating Yet!!!

I woke up and went directly to the gym.  I had a protein shake with some cashews on the way to the gym for a little bit on energy.  When I got there it was 104 degrees in the cardio room and I was hot the second I stepped in.  I went straight for the StairMaster...Why?!?!  I have no idea.  My legs are already overworked and I thought another 30 minutes on the StairMaster was a good idea.

I was a little more tired today than I have been.  I had to take a break 3 different times while on the StairMaster....which by the way is not easy.  If you are standing on it, it moves, so I had to stand on the edges and hold myself up.  It was hard on the arms but worth it to take some of the pain off my legs and calves.  This was another day that when I was done the machine was covered in sweat.  I had to use 2 little disinfectant wipes to get all the sweat up.

I couldn't decide what I wanted to do next.  I had my machine all picked out and this old lady "machine blocked" me.  I was changing the channel and when I turned around POOF, she was on my machine!!!  So I had to figure out what in the world I was going to do....

I went over to the treadmill, oh, since my machine was taken I was just going to have to run!  It has been a while since I ran, over a week that is, and I just needed to pick up the pace a little bit.  So I did some intervals on the treadmill.  It was still hot and I was running pretty hard, it hurt after the first couple of intervals so I tuned down the intensity a bit and immobilized my left arm and it helped so I was able to do a few more intervals. 

I finally gave up on the morning workout so I could go home and eat again.  That protein shake just wasn't sticking to my ribs like I needed it to.  I came in and made a eggie omelet (haha that's what my mom called them), 2 eggs, 2 egg whites and some American cheese and it might be the best thing I have ever eaten.  Ok, maybe I was just hungry but it was good.


After my second breakfast I had to decide what I was going to do for the day.  I have cleaned up my house pretty well but I needed to work on my yard and my house.  So I cleaned out my storage shed because it was nasty and full of wasps and spiders.  I got it cleaned out and noticed the outside was kinda gross, little mold and weather all over it.  So I cleaned the outside too, and that went so well that I thought I could do that on my house. 

My house is brick but the overhangs were pretty grimy and could use a little cleaning.  So I climbed up on my ladder and cleaned the overhangs on my house.  It was hot and sunny but my house looks so much better.  I had soapy water running down my arm and soaking my clothes.  "Water water everywhere, but its all full of bleach"  I finished it off by cleaning out the floor of my carport, which was slippery when wet so probably moldy as well even though I couldn't see it.  I really don't want to fall....

I came back inside and started on lunch #1 and a little bit of relaxation before its time to go back to the gym for workout #2.  I'm thinking today's nap might be on the couch while watching some water polo.  I have to get workout 2 in a little bit early tonight because I have an Olympic date with my dad to watch the Girls Gymnastics Team compete.   Date night!!!!

Your second workout was really like #3 or #4 because i'm sure cleaning out your shed, washing the house and cleaning the carport burned some nice calories too. Love your blog!
