We got about an inch of snow in the night and it was still falling when I got up at 4:30AM. I left for work almost an hour early only to make it 1/3 of the way and turn around. The snow just kept coming down harder and the roads were getting slick. They’re expecting more snow and maybe freezing rain through the day today followed by more snow this evening so there’s a good chance I’ll be home again tomorrow. I hate using vacation time for weather, but I don’t mind the day (or maybe days) off.
As soon as I got back home I fixed up the oats I’d packed for work. I decided to use a real bowl instead of my plastic container. Today’s toppings were a swirl of honey, a dollop of peanut butter and a few HUGE blackberries. Deeeeeelicious!
The coffee this morning was in one of my favorite mugs, a gift from my mom. I love polka dots & the color pink!
After breakfast I did a 30 minute workout DVD with cardio and some lower body. Some people think I’m nuts, but I LOVE squats and lunges. I think it’s because I can really feel my muscles working when I do them and I enjoy that burn. My timing was perfect because as soon as my DVD ended it was time for Namaste Yoga on FitTV.
I took the pup out to play in the snow for a bit. She had a blast running around like a crazy thing and rolling around. I think we’ve gotten at least another inch or so since I got home!
Jillian Michaels is on The Rachael Ray Show right now and I’m tuned in. I love and adore both of these ladies. Jillian always seems to say things that seem to hit home for me and she presents them in a fun way.
Speaking of Jillian, have you listened to her FREE podcasts? You can download them from the iTunes store. Just type KFI AM 630 in the search box, click the arrow to the right of SUNDAY, sort alphabetically and find Jillian. Add these to your iPod for some extra motivation during workouts! I actually like to listen to them in the car on my commute to help me stay motivated to hit the gym when I get home.
I love how so many of you bloggies as a question at the end of your blog posts and I’m going to start doing the same thing every day. Here goes!
What’s your favorite move for working the lower body?
