Another Day of Florida Fun
Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you’re having a good day!
Chris and I did his and hers workouts this morning at the FAU fitness center. Seriously that place is great! When I got back to Boston, my gym is going to look kind of crappy in comparison haha. Anyway, my workout consisted of:
- 15 minutes of intervals on the elliptical
- 15 minutes of intervals on the treadmill
- 2 sets 12 reps lat pulldowns
- 2 sets 12 reps seated rows
- 2 sets 15 reps lower back extensions on the stability ball
- various ab exercises
When we got back from the gym we ate some lunch and then played around in the pool again. I’m pretty sure that if I had a pool in my yard I wouldn’t get nearly enough of my school work done.
After getting ready we went to Bed Bath and Beyond to see if we could find some things Chris wants for his room. We didn’t find anything we liked, but I did see this in the parking lot!
Have you ever seen a car with a license plate for Alaska?!?! Um, I haven’t so I was super excited when I spotted this :). I made Chris drive by really slow so I could creepily take a picture. I made sure to black out the license plate numbers though so I could protect the owner’s privacy.
And then we stopped at Jamba Juice so I could get a yummy smoothie. Ever since I saw one on Julie’s post this morning I’ve been craving one! I doubt mine was as good as hers, but it was still pretty tasty!
It was a very simple smoothie with just strawberries, banana, soymilk, and peanut butter. Yummy!
This evening Chris and I had a date night near Delray Beach :). We went an Asian restaurant and I had sushi for dinner. I love sushi…I could eat it all the time! And this was really good, fresh tasting sushi- I’m pretty sure my eyes rolled in the back of my head several times after taking bites of it.
When we were finished with dinner we walked around “downtown” Delray. That area is really pretty! It was nice to aimlessly meander, just taking our time, and enjoy one another’s company.
On the way back to the car an intense fro-yo craving hit. I just had to get some. I knew that if I didn’t I would keep thinking about it all night. My love of fro-yo has seriously intensified this summer. In fact, I was always an ice cream kind of gal. I think the reason I really enjoy fro-yo is that it isn’t too sweet or rich and I can pick the type and amount of yummy toppings :).
However, this summer I have been indulging a little more than is usual for me, and I just haven’t felt as “healthy” as I normally do. Does that make sense? I generally feel more energetic and my body just feels good. Lately I’ve felt a little more “blah”. I don’t regret my indulgences, I just think I’m ready to stop feeling blah-like. This seems to happen to me a lot. I go through cycles where I want sweet desserts a lot and then I get it out of my system and I start to crave healthier treats- such as smoothies and the chocolate chip cookie dough protein balls of Amanda’s that I want to try!
Anyway, I hope you all have a fantastic night! I hope you don’t mind that my posts right now are just recaps of my time in Florida. I’m just trying to spend as much time with my man as possible, and I’ll be back to posting more regular stuff when I get back. 🙂
Have you ever seen an Alaska license plate?
Does your body ever feel “blah” when you eat too many sweets? Do you cycle through periods of craving desserts and then craving healthier indulgences?
