Shopping is my cardio
Another productive Friday off. Had lunch with work people (celebrating the end of a HUGE project) at a Thai restaurant. I had the “Boston Bay” dish which had chili basil sauce that was “3 peppers” hot. It was hot, and I drank like 6 glasses of water, but it was still pretty healthy! Just scallops, shrimp, calamari, veggies, and a bit of yucky white rice. Then I braved the malls. Seriously, it was crazy driving around (it’s Boston any way!) and finished a bit of shopping.
I FINALLY picked up some more workout clothes
I got a short sleeve blue shirt, a purple long sleeve shirt (with a little pocket on the side), and an orange long sleeve for M! (He loves Orange!) Plus now we can go running outside over the Holidays!! CHECK! I also got a running sports bra that is VERY supportive and I tried it out yesterday at the gym
I decided to give the running intervals a try. I made it up on the spot, so I will try it again with a bit more of a plan.
0-2 minutes 3.5 mph
2-4 minutes 5.3 mph
4-6 minutes 5.6 mph
6-8 minutes 5.9 mph
8-10 minutes 5.6 mph
10-12 minutes 5.3 mph
12-14 minutes 3.5 mph
14-16 minutes 5.6 mph
16-18 minutes 5.9 mph
18-20 minutes 6.2 mph
20-22 minutes 3.5 mph
22-24 minutes 5.9 mph
24-26 minutes 3.5 mph
26-28 minutes 5.6 mph
28-30 minutes 3.5 mph
TA DA!! I was surprised at how easily I could go faster. I should definitely up the speed the next time I try this. It feels so good to “run” and not “jog”. Even if I can’t sustain it for 30 minutes, 2 minutes feels just as great!
Friday night date night was dinner at Not Your Average Joe’s (our restaurant). I tried the Mahi Mahi with a tasty mango slaw( (I have NEVER eaten slaw in my life and this was so delicious). And a side of sweet potato wedges. I couldn’t finish the wedges, so they will be a snack today!
We also finally saw episodes 1-3 of Lost Season 5!!! Now just need to watch 4-11 to catch up to our Tivo.
Today is a Holiday Tea with my girlfriends. I decided to not go to the gym to work out, but to have “cleaning the house” be my work out today. Also, I might get a workout with M’s Christmas present! 😉 We are doing Christmas tonight and enjoying the 7-15 inches of snow about to hit Boston!
