Ahhh, my day off was nice:)
The morning didn’t go exactly as I an envisioned though because I had to do some report writing (which took longer than I had planned) and spinning was a bit of a disappointment. I hadn’t ever been to the Tuesday class because I’m usually at work and I didn’t really care for the instructor. She was very nice, but we did a lot of long sprints with virtually no resistance on the bike. I’m not really a fan of this because it doesn’t feel like I have much control and I was bouncing all around. I couldn’t really turn up the resistance to stabilize myself though, because she expected us to pedal as fast as possible for the entire song. I’d much rather push through more difficult resistance for a shorter sprint, then just pedal as fast as I can for a whole song. I’ve never seen an instructor pedal so fast (and look so silly). Anyway, I had a bit of a stomach ache this morning and all the bouncing didn’t really help. But, lunch did help! It was soooo nice eating lunch at home and being able to decide what I wanted in the moment. I’m loving the fontina on my sandwich (TJ’s just started making it in slices)…it’s so buttery!
After lunch, I took the train to the bus to Target! I went for fun, but also because we needed a lot of household stuff (paper towels, cleaning supplies) and the prices are much better than at the local hardware store. I took my time strolling down the aisles and I actually found some cute boots. I didn’t buy them though because I wasn’t sure about the quality of Target boots and I have my eye on another pair. Exciting to know I could get something cute for $39.00 though! I did buy some black riding pants. They are basically the warm, real-pant version of leggings. The leggings I have can be kind of drafty and they aren’t appropriate for work (unless I’m wearing them under a dress), so I’m excited to have a stretchy pant that’s actually a pant.
Dinner was veggie-licious! If you haven’t noticed, I’m really into bowls of fun foods. This one was made with quinoa, spinach, peas, corn, cranberries, and blue cheese, and topped with a potato burger. The blue cheese melted with the sweet cranberries, making this dish pretty awesome for someone who doesn’t care too much for vegetables.
It’s back to work in the AM. Later gators.
