Sore from the waist down.

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

Yesterday I did a killer leg workout, and my legs are sore (I can't help but wobble). I dread going to the gym on leg day, because I hate the pain associated, it's killer and different than working any other body parts; it takes a while to see the results than it is my arms. So my favorite workouts are shoulders and back.

This morning I had my oats topped with: Salba, Cinnamon, Pumpkin Spice, Justin's Maple Almond butter, TJ's pumpkin butter, Shredded coconut, annnnnd I may have added Maple Butter and Chocolate Almond Butter.

Haha, I am almost too embarrassed at the amount of toppings I eat with my oats, but I just recently started eating my oats like this (because I like it swaaa-eeet). There are just too many things clashing with one another. Simple is better, but sometimes I just am in the mood to indulge and I correlate it with something relatively healthy. uh-oh.

My eggs are about to expire soon, so I'll be having an omelet in the morin'. I am going to have to force myself to limit the toppings tomorrow :o)

This morning at the gym:
I did my cardio on the elliptical for 30 minutes and did the Torso Rotater for 5 minutes (to prepare lifting back).

I went back to the locker room to get my gloves, came back to do sets on the Lateral Pull. As I sit down, this trainer approaches me...I've never ever talked to the trainers, they intimidate me.. ** Tangent

**Tangent: Actually, if you remember, there is this one trainer that I've had my eye on, haha. I've been a chicken to say anything to him, my nerves got to me. For a couple weeks my co-worker would ask whether or not I introduced myself. (ah! scary)...but two days ago I just said "hi" and he said "hi" I was happy! I texted my co-worker and she said she was proud of me.

It's not the beautiful trainer, that wasn't my focus (or maybe I'm just lying to myself) I just wanted to prove to myself that I can conquer this stupid fear oh putting myself out there. Once I did it, it felt good. I always tell my friends to go out there and  just do it and now I am finally taking my own advice.

Anyway....back to the actual story about this morning...

...Continued: So this trainer approaches me and introduces himself. He tells me that he sees me around regulary. I tell him that I've only started getting serious about working out since this summer. He tells me that he has free time, and if I would like to be trained by him.

I couldn't turn down the offer! people pay $$$ to get trained here at 24 hour fitness. At the same time I thought "Oh great, why today? I didn't shave, gaaaah, and I wish I wore eyeliner and etc etc"

He had me do a few awkward moves that involved my arms up in the air ( I was worried about deodorant stains and ummm, if you're a women, you'd know what I mean), oh my gaaaawd I was mortified, and let me tell you, I am so easy to read. Once I feel ackward, you can totally tell, my face can't hide it.

He was really nice, his name is Fredie (that is really how it's spelled) and he is training me for free again on Thursday :o) This time I will be prepared. And I made a new friend, if he would like to be my friend.

My last attempt in making my own  Pumpkin Spice ended badly.
I found this, but I still miss my Starbucks (it's only been one day).

I am drinking a new tea from Celestia Seasonings,
it's Sugar Plum Spice!
and it's amazing.

I am excited for all these new flavors, I'm trying not to get attached to it, for I know it won't be here for long.

Are there any seasonal items that you always look forward to during the holidays?
-I'm ready to wait for next years Starbucks Red Cup, once this season is over, the Pumpkin Spice Latte has become my favorite :o(

I saw your blog on Healthychow and thought I would stop by. My favorite holiday item is Silk egg nog. I just bought some yesterday and had some in my coffee and then this morning I put a bit in my smoothie. It is is quite excellent! I need to look in to getting some of that tea, it looks delicious!

Free training sessions?!..that's awesome! My other holiday flavor obsessions, besides pumpkin which is near the top of the list for sure, are Peppermint Mocha and Eggnog!
