Happy Thursday Night everyone! I’m so happy tomorrow is Friday I’m more than 100% sure that I’m not the only one, though. Like many of you, I was worshiping the weather gods today for the incredible sunshine – it was about 65 degrees in NYC and I enjoyed every moment of it (even though I was mainly inside at work all day)! However, I tried to enjoy it as much as possible by walking around outside for 20 minutes for a little break. It was fabulous to walk around without a jacket.
Originally, I had planned a workout for myself at the gym for this evening. I just couldn’t bring myself to go there knowing that the weather was basically resembling Spring. So what did I do instead? I decided to take a 30 minute run/walk by the water. My apartment is about 3 blocks from Hudson River and I absolutely love running on the path beside the water. Not only do I get a good workout in, but it clears my mind. Something about the water has always been therapeutic for me.
After my cardio session, I came back to my apartment and did two strength sets to work my abs, arms, and legs. I was a hot mess after doing both sets. Here’s what I did:
-25 sit ups
-20 single arm bicep curls–switch between right and left arms (I used 7.5 lb dumb bells)
-20 kickboxing punches (I used 7.5 lb dumb bells)
*Repeat set 4 times
Phew! Between the cardio and both sets, I felt this was an awesome workout.
Onto some other random sorta things; not every little aspect of my life makes it on the blog, but I wanted to share what I’ve been enjoying lately – ’cause sometimes the simple things are just plain nice.
Getting photos of Spanky throughout the day isn’t half bad either:
And finally, I’ve also been thinking a lot about this blog, and some changes I want to make:
So I’m hoping within the next few weeks I can introduce some new features on StephSnacks, but for now you’ll just have to wait! Yeah I know, I had to go there
