It felt really great leaving work today, knowing I don’t have to go back until 2011! Don’t get me wrong, I love my job, but long breaks are awesome (especially when they involve using only three vacation days!). Eleven glorious days off makes for a very happy Mindy!
One of the ladies that I work with was feeling generous today and bought pizza for lunch for everyone on our floor that was working today. The irony is that just an hour or so before, I was talking with someone else about how good pizza sounded. It’s like she read our minds.
I started with two slices of veggie. I ended up having a third (which also ended up being one too many).
And, a cookie for dessert.
After work, I headed to the Y for my fifth day working out in a row. Setting a record here, people! Seriously, I don’t remember the last time I’ve been truly consistent with exercise, so hopefully this is a good start!
I did two miles of intervals on the treadmill. I ran for .25 mile then walked from 0.05 – 0.1 mile for an overall time of 22:59. My speed is still slow, but I know that will get better as I get back into a running routine.
Afterward, I did 3 sets of 10 push-ups and 30 crunches (10 regular and 10 bicycle on each side). I can tell that cross training and strength training really is going to be so key to improving my running.
My meal tonight was what I intended to have for lunch and something I’ve been craving all week: chips and cheese with a trio of dips: guac (love), salsa, and sour cream.
I’m off to watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas! I love the live action version! Jim Carrey plays the Grinch so well!
