I got myself all ready to go for a run this morning. It wasn’t raining anymore and running seems to be just the thing I need in my life right now. I got all my stuff laid out, ready to begin the process of getting prepared for a cold run. But after I got it all out, the thought of the effort it takes to get it all on, get my gadgets all set, get my key in a certain spot….I was tired just thinking about it!
Then I took a peeksies outside and said forget that…..
I was already dressed for a regular workout so I just put my shoes on and looked in my library of workout videos. I found one that I had bought several months ago that was still in the wrapper!
Awesome! New workout!
There are 2 levels and I did level 1. I am not sure what I think about it yet. My legs are a little shaky but time will tell if it was a good workout for me or not. Good Workout = DOMS. As of right now, it’s not my favorite video. For me, it didn’t have enough cardio so it would be a nice accompaniment to a run. She uses a kettle bell and I don’t have one so I used one of my hand weights. It felt awkward using them in that manner. They worked fine but it would be a more effective workout with the right equipment.
I did break a sweat though so I suppose that’s a good sign!
Since I was warmed up I was able to make that green smoothie I have been craving!
Ok so it’s not green but I know what’s in it and it makes me feel better to call it that.
This smoothie had:
- 1 scoop of Jillian’s vanilla protein powder
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries (blueberries, black berries, raspberries, strawberries)
- 1 frozen banana
- lots of baby spinach
- 1 cup crushed ice
