Weights Over a Run on Sunday

Working Out
So today I ended up ditching my half marathon training plan again. It called for 4 miles. It was a gorgeous, warm day, but really windy (gusting 18 mph). I just couldn't seem to get excited about running. So, I ended up doing chest, legs, boxing, and abs instead.

Pushups - 24
Flat bench chest flyes into press - 3x8
Pushups with toes on step - 16
Squats into Plie Squats with low-end pulse - 3x8
Incline bench flyes into press - 3x8
Staggered bench press - 12
Rear leg elevated lunges into deadlifts - 3x8
Firewalkers - 6
Calf raises - 2x16

I did the upper body only from combos 1 and 2 of Cathe's MMA Boxing then abs from High Reps. I did stretch for a bit after the workout before getting cleaned up.

Chores & Kitchen Boycott
Jason was nice enough to go to the grocery store while I was working out, then he headed out for a bike ride. In the meantime, I did laundry (washed, not folded mind you), made some hummus, and spent about 3 hours in our study/office shredding, filing, and tossing things.

It ended up being in the upper 60's, so when Jason got back he suggested we might go find a patio to sit out on for a drink. We did that and realized that even though it was nice and warm, the wind made it less warm. Also, there was a crying baby that couldn't be consoled. I know those things happen, but when you are childless, it's really hard to ignore. I really kind of felt sorry for the mom to be honest.

I had thought I was going to make a nice dinner tonight, but I think I'm going to boycott cooking. I feel like I've spent way too much time in the kitchen either cooking and/or cleaning and I'm just done. So not clue what's for dinner. Cereal? Right now Jason has his head in cabinets and is just randomly naming off things. So with that, I'm signing off....
