It is L here. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I got to relax a little bit on Sunday night. But back to work bright and early this morning. I’ve got a few big orders to get done before I head out of town for a few days to go visit Michelle in Oklahoma to attend the Live and Learn event there at 105 degrees.
September flew by me which is a good thing I think. :/ I was so nervous of being here alone doing all the business orders, etc. by myself for a whole month. My mom was even going to fly here to help me if I needed it. Though, thankfully I was able to get everything done! Big pat on the back for me! It is so nice to just sit down and reflect on everything that I have accomplished this month. It really makes me so proud and happy.
What did you accomplish this month that makes you proud?
My Sunday workout as I mentioned here - I was not sure what I was planning to do at the gym. I ended up do a mix of things. Some walking uphill and running. I really wanted to just enjoy my music and my workout. I really was not trying to push myself yesterday but just enjoy it.
- 10 minutes walking at 3.6 mph incline 3% – increased incline every 2 minutes
- 30 minutes of 6:2 run/walk work.
- 20 minutes walking uphill at 3.9 mph incline 4% – increased incline about every 4-5 minutes.
- 2 minute cool down.
My workout out was nice and steady. I felt my heart-rate just where I wanted it at the fat-burning zone. If you all remember Michelle and I discussed the benefits of walking here. My uphill work yesterday really burned out the butt and hamstrings!
Post-workout juice: celery, carrots, pear, cucumber, asparagus, and ginger
My late lunch was a simple hemp protein smoothie:
Than I headed to the store to get a few things that I needed for the week while sipping on this
Dinner was a huge kale salad topped with red onions, avocado, dulse flakes, nutritional yeast, lime juice and apple cider vinegar – plus some pumpkin sunflower seeds kale chips.
We decided to move our dinner outside on the porch since it was so beautiful outside. So here is my complete meal – wine included.
Gary’s dinner – (homemade my me)gluten free vegan pizza plus beer
It was a great evening with great food and great company. Well until a bug bit me not only once but twice. I hate that when it happens. I saved some room for dessert which was some cinnamon macaroons and lemon cookies that I made last week. Sorry forgot to take a picture, it was late when I ate them.
Twin Question: How do you like to end your Sundays? Do you have a ritual or do anything special?
I typically try to have a nice meal and typically a glass of wine to end my long week. Than also check my calender for the week ahead to see what I have to get done or look forward to.
Till next time,
