relaxing sunday afternoon.

It has been a wonderfully relaxing day, just as a Sunday should be, if you ask me!  I slept in this morning, albeit far later than I planned on, and ended up missing both services at my church this morning.  Unfortunate, because it was Baptism Sunday, which is hands down one of my favorite services of the whole year.

I mixed a container of pomegranate Chobani with chia seeds and vanilla almond Bear Naked granola for some brunch.  I love this combination so much!  The sweet/tart flavors from the yogurt plus the crunch of the granola makes my mouth happy!

The morning was pretty low-key.  I watched a couple episodes of Gilmore Girls and read some of Tina Fey’s (freaking hilarious!) book before I got moving for a trip to the Y.

For cardio, I did 3.4 miles (15 minutes) on the stationary bike and 2.0 miles (21:04) on the treadmill, before moving to some strength training.  I realized this morning that I really do need a plan of action before attacking the weights.  I did some random exercises with a pair of 8.0 pound weights before calling it quits.

  • Plank 1:00 minute
  • Chest fly 15 reps x 3 sets
  • Tri extension 12 x 3
  • Overhead press 12 x 3
  • Donkey kick 10/leg x 3
  • Scissor kick 10 x 3

Since it’s gotten such rave reviews around the blog world, I bought The New Rules of Lifting for Women not too long ago.  I want to spend some time really reading through it, developing a few solid strength routines, and learning some new moves since I feel like I really only know the same few.

Once I got home, I did a little yard work.  I tried to mow the lawn, but I have no idea how to use the mower at the house I’m renting, so I need to have someone show me that.  The sad fact of the matter is that I’m 27 years old and I’ve never mowed the lawn in my life.

I took some of the tempeh taco filling and made nachos for dinner!

The rest of the evening is dedicated to a bit more reading and watching No Strings Attached.  I have a definite crush on Ashton Kutcher, he’s such a charmer!

How was your weekend?
