It's Wednesday, FINALLY! This week has actually moved at an alright pace for me. On a totally random note, Bestie Bon Bon, is about to give birth ANY SECOND! I am so excited for her. She already has little Alyana who will be 2 in August, and this next little princess, will be her last baby, so it's an exciting time :)

So here's the deal - working out this week has been zip, zilch, nada. The last time I worked out was Saturday with my 5 mile run. Sunday is always my rest day, and Monday and Tuesday, I haven't felt all that great. It must be glorious allergy season, but I've had a constant headache since Saturday, and it seems to have stuck with me for a few days. I'm not considering this 'slacking', but more of a rest for my body. I am going back to the gym today after work since its.....XBIKE WEDNESDAY!

Since I am being true to my goal of rocking my little black shorts (and little bikinis) this Summer, I am gonnna do some lifting with my legs after XBIKE. This one area in my gym is pretty sweet too, they have a leg station all set up with the best leg machines (if I choose not to do squats on the Smith Machine), and it makes it convenient to jump from 1 machine to the next. Great benefit from this: it keeps your heart rate up and your metabolism cooking. Speaking of 'cooking', my eating has been pretty good for the most part (except that Chinese last night lol). I've been obsessed with the same salad for lunch for the past month and a half. I seriously bring the same salad to work with me EVERY.DAY! Just cause I love you all, I'm gonna share the ingredients :)
2 handfuls of spinach leaves
1/4 cup edamame beans
1/4 cup garbanzo beans
1 Boca Meatless patty
half of an avocado
small handful of cherry tomato's
1 cup of broccoli slaw
drizzle of EVOO
1 tablespoon Ken's Steakhouse LIGHT Parmesan Italian dressing

It's hands down my ultimate go to lunch with plenty of protein, GOOD fats, and carbs. Not to mention, it's DA BOMB!

So workouts schedule for the week:
Monday: Rest
Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: XBike, 15 minutes on stair stepper, 15 minutes walk on 10% incline, legs
Thursday: 15 minutes stair stepper, 15 minutes elliptical, upper body
Friday: 30 minute run (3 miles)
Saturday: 4 mile run, abs, back

Snaps for planning workouts. It's honestly a GREAT way to keep yourself accountable. I like to plan my workouts like I do appointments. If I write them down, I'll go. I get it in my head, that someone is waiting for me at the gym, so I HAVE to go. And that someone is Tread, or the weights :)

Here's something else I need to wrap my head around....HOW THE HECK DOES A 47 YEAR OLD WOMAN GET PREGNANT? Yes, I do know HOW one gets pregnant, but you just don't hear of many 47 year old women getting pregnant. I believe all pregnancies are a blessing from God, and if it's God's will for you to be a mother, you will be a mother. Still....47...hmmm.......Thoughts?
