So Long Daylight Savings – Back to the Gym

Good afternoon all. Today I’m doing a lunch post since the morning completely got away from me.

I’ll do a short recap of Monday – it was a tough one. For some reason, I was just feeling a little down and frustrated. There are a bunch of things contributing to it, but I don’t really feel like talking about them.

I started off Monday with a breakfast of raspberry oatmeal.

Lunch was leftovers from the pasta the night before. I’ll tell you right now that I did not get up and run on Monday morning or this morning. Why is it soo hard for me?! Unless I am meeting someone for a run, my bed and sleep seem to win over every time. Can someone please sprinkle some magic morning-person dust on me?

During my lunch break yesterday and after work, I read a few Foodbuzz and  NYC Marathon recaps. Love them! I also convinced my friend to participate in the Marathon Monday Mania thing that ING was doing, whereby if you registered for the 2011 Marathon and completed a scavenger hunt item, took a photo of yourself doing it, and posted it to their wall between 12-3 p.m. you had a chance to qualify early for the 2011 NYC Marathon. Did anyone else out there do it?

In true sneaky fashion, they didn’t say how many people would be selected until after 3 p.m. Only 50 people! Alas, my friend was not selected. Bugger.

Not only was I feeling a little down yesterday, but then the crappy weather took it to a whole new level. Sleet/snow already?! I can tell this winter is going to be rough. As such, I figured it was time to face my fear of the dreadmill and head back to the gym for a post-work run.

My gym was pure insanity! Thank goodness I got there a little early, because by the time I was leaving, there were no machines or lockers available! I felt guilty running much more than 30 minutes (the gym limit on a cardio machine), so I pounded out 4 miles in 33:18. And the sweat was flying off of me. For all you runners out there, have you made the end of nice weather trip back to the treadmill yet? I avoided it as long as humanly possible.

We I got home from the gym, I made the lazy man’s dinner…

Yup – that would be grilled chicken (on the Foreman) with a side of corn and peas. Oh and by the way, it’s a poor man’s dinner, but also a stove/ovenless woman’s dinner as well.

Hope you’re all having a great Tuesday!

  1. I hope you are feeling better soon. I felt like that last week :p

    Ugh, I hit up the treadmill Friday evening bc it was so dark out by the time I got home. Necessary evil!

  2. Hope you’re feelin’ a bit better today, Lindsey! I’m dreading the mill, that’s for sure. Hopefully I’ll be back to running next week and give you a good reason to get out of bed early!! 🙂

  3. Ughh I hate the gym! I am dreading going back this winter….the one thing I hate about NYC: Cold winters

  4. Hey girl! Where did you find raspberry oatmeal???? It looks really good (like most every food nowadays) and I would love to pick it up when I go shopping this weekend. I am also noticing at this point that all of the other comments that have been left for you are about running and going to the gym and of course mine is about food….Can’t wait to use that jogging stroller!!!

    • I made the raspberr oatmeal. I took fresh raspberries and cooked them into the oatmeal. Super early and totally delicious. YAY for the jogging stroller – I can’t wait to meet Baby Wilson!!!
