Throw Back to the 80s

by Meghann on February 24, 2009

Tonight I decided to break out something that has been buried in my closet way too long..

my Rollerblades!

I bought these babies a couple of years ago in attempt to make exercise more fun. Little did I realize that rollerblading is not as effortless as it was when I was 12. These babies give you quite the work out and I gave up on them after a couple of turns around the block.

Tonight I was determined to enjoy this work out, rather then dread it. I did a 20 minute skate around my apartment complex and could feel it in my legs, abs and shoulder. I relished the pain as it meant I was accomplishing something with these babies.

I think now that I’ve rediscovered the skate and their benefits I will utilize them more often for cross training purposes. ๐Ÿ™‚

Whens the last time you were on a pair of rollerblades or skates? Were you someone who went to the skating rink as a kid? I remember going on Friday nights and hoping my crush would ask to hold my hand during the slow songs..swoon..

Anyways..

Before I left work I had a Kashi Pumpkin Pie Bar.

Dinner was a fun twist on a Frittata.

In my egg white Frittata I had Dates, Goat Cheese, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Spinach, Asparagus and Green Onions. I heated up all the veggies in a small pan then coated the veggies with a cup of egg whites. I let the bottom heat for a minute or two, then transferred it under the broiler for about five minutes.

I topped the frittata with a dollop of Tomato Chutney. It added a spicy touch to the sweet and savory combo in the frittata.

On the side I had a toasted Flat Out wrap slathered with Tomato Chutney.

It was a great, protein rich meal.

For dessert I had the last of Tami’s Whoopee Pies.

Thanks again, Tami, for the wonderful whoopee pies! I enjoyed each and every one of them!

I’m off to watch some trashy tv. Good Night!

Congratulations,you have survived Monday! The rest of the week should be a breeze. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am trying not to over it do it this week before my races this weekend, so this morning I found a work-out on my Netflix Instant Play that seemed relatively easy and low impact.  I did the Self: Slim and more ยป
