Hilly Wednesday

This morning was a nice morning. I got up, fed the dog, ate my normal breakfast and headed out to work. When my boss arrived, he had a surprise for us. He made another batch of blackberry cobbler. He changed a few things up, but it tasted great! I was strong and didn't eat the entire dish. About 1pm, I had my banana for my 2nd snack.

After eating my standard whole wheat lunch, I went back to work. About 1/2 hour before I left, I enjoyed 1/2 bar of my Luna bar. This flavor was my all time favorite. It was Nutz Over Chocolate. It was so good, I could have eaten 10 of these bars. Candy bar for a snack!

The gym was pretty laid back. I ran hills today on the treadmill. I ran 3 miles at 6 incline for 34:28 minutes. Afterwards, I headed straight to my spin class. We had the new guy again. He was pretty good, I got a good sweat going during class. I think I wasn't into the music, or something. For some reason, I kept looking at the clock. Time did not fly by. I was probably in one of "those" moods where I didn't want to be there, but I forced myself anyways. I'm estimating that I burned about 500-600 calories at the gym today. It was a good day. I needed to burn off some of that cobbler.
Tonight's dinner was left over spaghetti with yummy veggies. It was just as good the second day as the first. I started getting caught up on my DVR. I think that if I didn't have the DVR, I wouldn't watch nearly as many shows as I do. Oh well, I do love TV.
Right now, I'm finishing up 1/2 of a strawberry Greek yogurt with fresh blackberries. I love this good!
I feel the need to bake, so this weekend will be a baking frenzy!! I can't wait until I decide what I want to bake. I'm seeing chocolate PB biscotti in my Saturday morning coffee. I can't wait to get back to my 9am Saturday spin class. I love that class. I think I love the fact that I get to go home and relax ALL DAY LONG and not watch the time. I love the weekends. This weekend will be great because we don't have a single plan (beside the normal working out).
What is your favorite Saturday morning activity (after your workout)? I love sitting outside enjoying with a warm cup of coffee and watching the leaves blow off the tree (of course more in the fall time). It's so relaxing outside at that time, when no one else is up, yet.


  1. sounds like a good work out/day. Wish I could be more on a schedule like that!

  2. Mmm, that looks delicious! GOod on you not devouring the whole portion!

    I love being able to relax post workout and enjoy some yummy food with friends :)

  4. Mmm, more blackberries.

  5. Mmm that looked yummy! I think not having to do anything at all makes the perfect Saturday. No law school, no chores, just relaxing with the Yorkies! Well, now that I've started running again, I look forward to Saturday runs and Yoga as well!
