While I love to blog and share all of my nonsense with my 10 loyal followers (love you guys), I just didn’t have much to say last week. I took a complete 9 days off from exercise to let my body recover from my marathon. My knee was super sore afterwards and I decided to be smart and just rest. What did I do with my free time? I went out to lunch with coworkers, shopped on the internet, read some articles, and took some walks. At home, I did more loads of laundry than I can ever remember doing in the past and Chris and I emptied the garage, trashed a lot of stuff, and reorganized as we put stuff back. The garage is still pretty full (lots of baby stuff), but it’s organized. :-)
I worked from home yesterday and started back on my healthy eating regimen. I wasn’t super crazy during my rest week, but I tend to eat worse when I don’t exercise.
Breakfast: organic whole grain waffles topped with strawberries, blueberries, and agave.
Now for dessert!
“Healthy” Chocolate Mousse with Angel Food Cake
- One container of no sugar added pudding
- One mini angel food cake (or a slice of angel food cake)
- Light Cool Whip
- Mini chocolate chips
1. Place angel food cake in a bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, mix 1 container of pudding with 3 heaping tablespoons of cool whip = chocolate mousse.
3. Top the angel food cake with the chocolate mousse.
4. Top with some mini chocolate chips.
My first workout in 9 days…a very sweaty spin class followed by some abs and push-ups. At work, we only have about 20 spin bikes so we have to sign up for class. I signed up but all the bikes were taken when I got to class. The instructor saved me from having a compete meltdown (I really needed that workout) and he offered me his bike. Thanks, Sean!
PS Thanks for sticking around and reading and commenting. It really does make my day to read what you have to say. :-)
What’s the longest amount of time you went without exercising?
Cheerios…original or honey nut?
