Another Uncomfortable & Unhappy Monday Sans Yoga

This morning was the same routine as always: get up, eat, go to work, have snacks and eat lunch. Then, on my way to the gym. I did have something interesting for one of my snacks. I had a Sharkies twist chew. It was pretty good. Lots of flavor and I love these chews. They are so good. They remind me of when I was a kid. I use to eat other brands all the time.

I had one of the best runs (on the treadmill)! I hauled booty for my 4.25 miles in 44:35 minutes. That's a new PR for me!! I love setting new PR's. My influence was that I was "running" (lol) late for my spin class, so I had to hurry. I was drenched with sweat, then ran over to the spin room.

Spin was another great class. I'm so excited, we get this instructor on Wednesday, too!! For some reason, I think she works us harder than any other instructor I've taken. I've even taken x-bike (indoor mountain biking). Sweat drips on the!!

I wasn't really feeling yoga today. My legs were crying for my compression socks. I went home and slapped those babies right on. I wore those for about an hour while I ate dinner. Tonight was just cereal. I tried this new cereal from Nature's Path. I wasn't really looking forward to it, but it did look interesting. When I opened the box, all I could smell was cinnamon. I'm not sure why. I couldn't taste any. It was a pretty good cereal. It had a little bit of everything in there. I went back for a second bowel (only 1/2 a bowel). I'm am still pretty stuffed. I don't think I will be eating anything else tonight.

While I ate my dinner, I watched some season finales. I can't believe the fall season is starting next week. Crazy how fast time flies by!
I love how I feel after such a great workout. After I've had a filling dinner, a nice warm shower and had a chance to relax a little. I just feel so comfy and so relaxed. I love these days. I don't feel relaxed often (actually rarely). I could melt into the couch right now.
Don't forget to enter my giveaway. I will be announcing the 3 lucky winners tomorrow night (from Good luck!!
Is it hard for anyone else to fully relax?


  1. That WAS a great workout! Sadly my attempt at a yoga class was foiled. That Sharkies roll looks divine!

  2. Hmmm... what exactly is a sharkies twist chew?

    And I sometimes eat cereal for dinner, too. I'll have to check out that brand. The flavor sounds great!

  3. Interesting - I've never seen the sharkie twists before. Those WOULD Be good I would imagine.

  4. I ran into yoga five minutes late last night with my stress level and heart rate at a 10. By the time I left, I was quite relaxed. ;)

  5. i'm glad i'm not the only one who eats cereal for dinner :) congrats on the new running pr!
