day 4. im bored because i am boring

day 4

I am the most boring person ever, i swear. As of today I have officially eaten the same things for breakfast and lunch for the past 847627364 weekdays in a row. officially. wanna hear all about it? maybe i’ll start taking pictures of soup and oatmeal like everyone else so i can be more interesting. teaser – it looks mostly like soup and oatmeal.

  • breakfast: oatmeal w/ almond milk and chia seeds. shocker
  • lunch: Amy’s split pea soup w/ kale and carrots on the side. double shocker
  • snack: 2 rice cakes with sunflower seed butter IMMEDIATELY upon getting home
  • dinner: a can o green beands and an Amy’s california burger on sprouted ezekial with ketchup, mustard, veganaise, kale, and mushrooms. aaaaaaand 2 miller lights (doh!) I know i said i need to watch the alcohol intake but a couple friends i hadn’t seen in a while invited me out for drinks last night and i was like fuck it. i thought miller light would be a good alternative to my usual spotted cow but it was mostly jsut not very yummy.

So not too bad! i really need to stop buying those Amy’s soups and just friggin make my own. That shit is like $2.50 a can. I might as well be going out to eat for lunch every day the way i’m spendin. Maybe i’ll make a big batch o soup this weekend…but let’s be realistic…i’ll probably just take naps instead…

at least today is friday friday friday! this is what i did at the gym this morning…

25 minute run/walk on the treadmill. 3 minutes running (5.5), 1 minute walking (3.7) repeating. about 2 miles. My shin started to give me some grief toward the end. ugh, of course. followed this up with

circuit 1

  • 3 x 20 V-Ups
  • 3 x 15 hamstring curls on an exercise ball
  • 3 x 12 each one arm kneeling rows #22.5
  • 3 x 12 lateral arm raises #10 each
  • 3 x 12 front arm raises #10 each

circuit 2

  • 3 x 20 shoulder shrugs #50
  • 3 x 10 pushups
  • 3 x 12 each hamstring push ups from med ball. (wtf, i don’t know what anything is called)
  • 3 x 12 leg raises while holding #10 med ball up

circuit 3

  • 4 x 20 shoulder shrugs #50
  • 3 x 12 each side bends #25
  • 3 x 12 each sitting bouncing med ball side to side

Workout was okay, but i really am having a hard time challenging myself lately. I haven’t been sore in a while which is usually a good indicator that i worked hard. this probably just means i’ve reached my full potential and can stop what i’m doing and eat more vegan cookies…or maybe i just need some help. that’s why i have been toying with some ideas for switching up my workouts. i’ve been looking into some classes and different gyms around town and i think it’s time to try something new to really kick my butt and give me a challenge. Things i’m considering:

– crossfit gyms in milwaukee. appealing but mucho dinero

-drench. another gym that i’ve heard will make you barf and turn you into a fitness machine. intriguing…

-yoga or hot yoga. i have like 40 groupons for yoga places because i always think i want to do it. then i think about it more and i fall asleep just thinking about it. i know its probably really good for me and would help me not get injured but i just cant get excited about yoga!

-parkour. HAHA JUST KIDDING. i’d die. i just ran out of ideas..

I need suggestions i think.
