Spin & Comfort Food on Cold Night

Spin
I am not sure I've ever been so happy to have a spin class to go to. It's been almost 2 weeks since I've been. The gym was not staffed all last week, meaning no classes. I've definitely been missing this cardio option. I did get triceps done as well. I went with a triset of 3x(8,10,10):

Double-arm overhead triceps extension
Double-arm kickbacks
Triceps pushups (on my knees mind you)

I was really kind of surprised at how hard spin seemed today after such a brief hiatus. My legs are still shaking. I feel like I did a million walking lunges today. So, it was definitely work, but good work of course.

Comfort Dinner
After the gym, I ended up working from home the rest of the afternoon. Finally got plumbers to come in and hook us up with a new water heater. Thank goodness we have 3 full baths in our house and 2 water heaters. So, we've been able to get ready downstairs.

I am not sure if it's just because I don't do it often, but somehow I feel more productive working from home. And, yes, I have said this before. Maybe fewer distractions - other than the dogs of course. I work on some of our social media efforts and that can often require a significant amount of time doing online research for new topics, posts, and such. I guess at home I can solely focus on that whereas in the office I have other projects going on.

Anyway, it was just sort of a different day for me. Sometimes that can be refreshing.

It's another cold night here. Last night I made chili, tonight I went with a vegan version of a meat and potatoes comfort meal. I made smashed cauliflower, sauteed kale and seitan with a portobello sauce.
