Very Unstable

This morning was the same type of day. Nothing special. I got to the gym and hopped on the treadmill for my Monday night 4.25 miles. Judge Judy was so funny today. They had someone on that was suing about a haunted house. It was pretty entertaining.

Spin class was another ass kicker. 55 minutes of shear pain. It's so difficult after running over 4 miles. I know it's worth it. All this training will get me where I want. Yoga class felt odd today. I didn't have any balance what so ever. I was falling over every time I tried. I usually am pretty good and can hold any pose as instructed. I think I spent more time falling than holding any pose. I was entertaining many people in class with my un-stable-ness.

When I got home, I was starving (as usual on Mondays). I finished up the chicken from last week (this was the last day for the chicken). I made some mashed potatoes (another weakness). The potatoes were:

5 potatoes, peeled, chopped, cooked and mashed. I mixed in 1/3 cup of mascarpone cheese, 1/2 cup of butter (or as much as desired), 1/2 cup non fat milk and any seasoning you like. I had some garlic salt, oregano, parsley and thyme. I mixed everything together and enjoyed warm along with some green beans.

Mashing the potatoes (I release some anger while doing so).

Final product:

My cooking/baking buddy.

On my poll, 23% of you guys have Asics shoes, 15% Nike, 15% New Balance and 46% have "other". The people that have "other", could you leave a comment letting me know what type of shoes you have and how you like them.
Fill out my new poll I have posted. Tomorrow is my hubby's birthday, you may be getting something special for the occasion. The poll may give you hint to what the giveaway may be.


  1. I LOVE Green Beans - yummy!!! The potatoes look so good...I may have to make those one day.

    I wear Asics and Saucony. I rotate them, better for my feet if I do.

  2. That is exactly why I do yoga in my living room (DVD) :)

    I don't remember if I took the poll but I wear mizunos for training, sauconys for racing.

    Happy bday to the hubs!

  3. Nice job on the Monday Madness!!! Happy early Bday to the hub.

  4. I use Mizunos. =) It wasn't purely by choice since I won it at a MIzuno expo. It did help with my overpronation. Helped a LOT actually! But I'm about to retire them since it's already ran 500miles since I got them. I'm leaning towards getting the Asics GT2150.

    I am really a Nike girl, but not with my running shoes. Tried two kinds already and it really isn't good for me. =(
