Goooood afternoon, friends!

I’ve been a busy bee today! I woke up early and hit the gym. I’ve had gym anxiety ever since I started running outside a couple weeks ago – not wanting to go back and have to use the treadmill, etc. – but, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. The 4 inches of snow we got last night meant it was gym or bust!

I completed the always fun and effective 3-2-1 Treadmill Interval Workout.

Time Speed
0:00-20:00 4.0 and 2% incline
20:00-23:00 6.0
23:00-25:00 6.5
25:00-26:00 7.0
26:00-50:00 repeat mins 20-26 4 more times
50:00-53:00 3.5
Total: 4.7 miles

I knew I hadn’t been to the gym in a while because I completely forgot the necessities like headphones to watch TV, and my free weight circuit printouts. Blast! Ah well, I made do trying to read lips on CNN to pass the time. Good times, let me tell you! ;)

Once my sweat sesh was over, I scurried home to shower and change because my Mom and I had mother/daughter day at the mall planned! We browsed, we talked, we bought and we ate – at Champps!

Champps is a hybrid sports bar/upscale-ish grill, and we hadn’t eaten there in ages. Their selection (although pricy for the type of restaurant, imo!) is really good, and we split the Bleu Cheese Steak Salad. Bleu Cheese dressing for mumsie, Balsamic Vinaigrette for yours truly!

omg I loathe bleu cheese and asked for it to come on the side, which they messed up, but there was something about the combination of the creamy cheese, zesty onion rings and savory steak that just worked. Completely and utterly satisfying! You got lucky, Champps (shaking my fist!) ;) Do you like bleu cheese?

We continued our shopping bonanza at Target, where we treated ourselves to some Starby’s. :) One short, no-foam, skinny vanilla latte. Yum, yum!

 

Ben’s little brother just returned from Spring Break in Mexico, so we’re going to go over to his parents house to hear how it went. Ah, to be young again!! ;)

See you tonight – I’ve got a num dinner planned!

Did you go on any fun spring breaks in college?

I was a Cancun child through and through. Yep, one of those spring breakers. Muwahahaha – you’re only young once!!!
