I started out the day with C25K Week 6 day 1, 25 jumping jacks, 25 pushups and 30 crunches. Since it's the last week of the 28 day bootcamp (day 25) I did the video twice. It was upper body so that entailed 20 more pushups. Boy were my arms tired.
We drove up to San Francisco in the rain to have brunch with some friends. Very nice but wet. I had an excellent tofu scramble (jalapenos, cilantro and ranchero sauce) and the home fries were quite tasty, too. I forgot to get a picture.
After we got back, I mixed up some cookie dough for a potluck at work on Tuesday. I'll bake them tomorrow and post a picture.
All in all, it was a very nice but busy weekend. Hopefully next weekend will be a little less hectic. I should head to bed soon so I can get up in the morning to exercise before work. It is nice to get home and be able to just do chores rather than rushing to get a workout, then cook dinner and then get stuff done.

I got up at 3am to do my exercise today (because I'm probably crazy). I did the 20 minute run and it felt great. I did slow it down a little (5.8mph from 6mph) for the last 5 minutes because I saw my heart rate was about 170 and figured I should be so close to my max heart rate. I did the bootcamp (abs) after as well as the jumping jacks, crunches and pushups. Those pushups were pretty hard today....maybe because I did so much upper body yesterday and used up lots of glycogen running.
It will be weird to start week 6 because it'll be back to run/walk intervals but it should be fine.
I had some peanut butter on a multigrain english muffin for breakfast when I got to work. Boy, I was hungry.
Hopefully all the morning exercise will make my drive home from work less aggravating. Well, it will be aggravating but maybe I won't feel like killing the slow drivers in front of my so much. I can hope.
Have a great day everybody!

I decided since I hadn't taken a day off cardio for at least the three weeks that perhaps I should. I did my bootcamp (upper body) and needed more so I did the 15 minute Jackie Warner Power Circuit Training upper body portion. Yes, I did my 25 pushups, crunches and jumping jacks as well. And I ran up and down the stairs between the second and fourth floors of the VA hospital half a dozen times. So it was sort of a day off of cardio.
Dinner tonight will be some whole wheat pasta with turkey meatballs and Newman's Sockarooni sauce (yummy) and some broccoli. That will hit the spot.
I'm looking forward to my 20 minute run tomorrow. I may even get up early to do it. I'll see how early I get to bed tonight.
