My fate for my morning work out was decided when I woke up to dark clouds and rain outside. I did not need any more push then that to tell me to stay inside and do the Jillian Michaels Work Out through Exercise TV on Demand.
Before my work out I had the other half of my Protein Odwalla Bar from yesterday.
Jillian Mchael’s Banish Fat Boost Metabolism DVD took a much different approach the her No More Trouble Zones DVD. While the No More Trouble Zones work out was strength focused and used weights with consistent reps, her Banish Fat Boost Metabolism was more cardio focused with no additional hand weights needed.
I did work up a sweat with Banish Fat, but since my work outs are pretty cardio heavy thanks to running I much prefer strengthing exercises with videos. I would say if I were to pick one of the two to purchase and continue on a regular basis I would pick the No More Trouble Zone DVD.
After Banish Fat I really felt like I could have got away with more of a work out or something. I was considering going for a run in the drizzle, but decided a shower and breakfast would be better. Maybe I will try to work in a bike ride or walk with Abbie this afternoon.
My Dad made waffles from scratch this morning.
He used a Betty Crocker recipe that called for the egg whites to be whipped to tiff peaks before being folded into the batter. This resulted in very fluffy, yummy waffles.
I added a handful of Dried Cherries to my waffle batter and topped the waffles with the left over sugared strawberries and the strawberry juices that had came out of being in the fridge last night. It was a great syrup substitute.
Our original plans were to enjoy some fun in the sun on the beach today, unfortunately the hidden sun makes these plans seem kind of pointless. Instead I took advantage of my Dad’s car knowledge and his insistence that I needed new tires today or be face with blowing them on the road in the next week. I chose new tires. I also may have not had a oil change since umm.. last May, so to Tire Kingdom we went!
On the way we also discovered my wind shield wipers were in need of replacement. Apparently my car was falling apart around me!
So one hour, an oil change, two new tires and an oil change later I needed a snack.
I picked up these Peanuts while we were killing time at Target and had a small handful on the way home.
I now feel safe again in my car. Woo hoo!
Now let’s see what other fun activities we can do today despite the rain. I heard rumors of bowling. That should be fun!
Lisa from Lisa Hearts Pizza is another baker where supporting The Leukemia and Lymphona Society is a cause near and dear to her heart as both her dad and aunt are non-hodgkin’s lymphoma SURVIVORS! Pretty incredible, right?
Lisa is baking up something pretty great for the event and just think how purchasing her goods you are helping someone else’s life that could be a fellow blogger’s Dad or Aunt. Just think about that.
