Fueled by Sugar

4 Oct

My boyfriend and I work on the same street a few blocks away from each other. Since we don’t always see each other during the week I tend to stop by his work a lot and he brings me treats. Like every Wednesday they have “Bagel Wednesday” which actually leads to me having bagel Wednesday as well.

Some days he brings me delicious things like peanut butter cookies and hot chocolate. Oh wait, that was yesterday and it was wonderful. Unfortunately I still had to work out after consuming hundreds of grams of sugar- not the best idea.

I only had 30 minutes to work out so I did this short by intense workout:

  • Run 2 miles getting progressively faster. I started at a 4.0 walk and ended up running at 7.2
  • Do 50 regular squats with 10 lb weights
  • Do 50 plie squats with 10 lb weights
  • Do 50 lunges with 10 lb weights
  • Do 50 dead lifts with 10 lb weights
  • Jump Rope for 2 minutes
Whew! For only 30 minutes I worked up quite a sweat.
In other news today is Tuesday so that’s always good. Unlike Amy I actually enjoy Tuesday’s, I am done with work at 3 and don’t work until 10 on Wednesday’s. That means lots of staying up late to watch all my shows (biggest loser, parenthood AND teen mom).
Do you have someone who brings you treats or have an office full of them?
-I don’t have any co-workers so I avoid the office full of sweets and just rely on the bf for that instead!

    I’m jealous you have someone to bring you treats! I’ve got nothin’. But I guess I bring myself treats sometimes, hehe. I love Parenthood! Usually don’t watch it until the weekend but it’s so good!

    Ha ha… I’m glad someone enjoys the day. Otherwise, I’d be petitioning to get rid of it all together!

    Yesterday was a cake day at work. I still got a decent run in, but man… the sugar doesn’t quite fuel the long run (specifically the last 1.5 because I was struggling) like other things do… lol
