A few days ago I wrote on my Facebook status that I needed to stay my ass out of TJ Maxx. I hereby officially change my mind.
Besides shopping, another thing that I’ve discovered lately that I’m becoming addicted to is the shower at the gym. I have been exercising regularly now since 2009 and somehow I am just now figuring this out. It pains me to think of how I used to workout and go about the rest of my day all sweaty and smelly like. Gross.
These days I pack a gym bag and take a leisurely shower at the gym (with flip flops on, of course) and then go about my day fresh as a daisy. Not to mention it feels freaking good. And someone else watches my child for me while I shave my legs in peace.
As a matter of fact, I’ve nixed shaving my legs anywhere at all except for the gym these days. My shower at home is so small that when I bend over to shave my leg I hit my head and ass on opposite walls.
Today I started my day off with a easy 4 mile run after I dropped the little man off at school.
Since I was running a new route, I carried my phone with me and used an app called JogTracker. I’ve used this app a couple of times when I’ve forgotten my Garmin on runs and it works pretty well. The one thing I love about it is that it shows an active map on the screen while you are running of where you have been. I used it today to keep myself from getting lost and it worked like a charm!
I didn’t get lost, my route ended up being exactly the 4 miles I was aiming for and I got back to the Y just in time for Boxmania class. I love it when a plan comes together!
After running and an hour kicking and punching the shit out of a target I decided to take myself on a lunch date.
Soy nuggets, spelt and butternut squash, couscous and salad.
The spelt and butternut squash was out of this world! I’ll definitely be trying to recreate this one soon.
