While I am sure I could not live without technology, it sure can get on my nerves and is a huge source of my anxiety. Chad always tells me I need to put away my phone. He is VERY right too.
Anyways, with the blog switch there has been glitches the two major ones being all my comments are still in cyber space and number two (which effects you guys!) is that I will no longer show in your Google Reader if you subscribe to my blog as www.arunningtale.com. It is a easy fix but it requires your help. To get my posts in your reader again enter in this to “Subscribe” in Google Reader:
So silly I know. I am still trying to find a work around for this so that I magically appear back in the feeds without my readers needing to do anything…
I finally finished updating my wedding pages today as well! Make sure to check out all the tabs, there are tons of photos on there.
Today is a stat holiday in Alberta called Family Day, such a nice break to have between Christmas and Easter. We had little plans for the day, a 9am gym trip (when it opened), some blog work, laundry and hanging out with my family.
This morning’s gym trip consisted of a 4km treadmill walk. I have been trying new (and sweaty) treadmill walks for when I am not in the running mood and will share them with you soon. Today’s was very sweaty! After my walk and sufficient celebrity gossip magazine reading I moved onto today’s weight workout of back and biceps.
3 sets of 12 reps:
Wide Grip Lat Pulldown –35lbs
One Arm Dumbbell Row – 12lbs
Narrow Grip Underhand Lat Pulldown –35lbs
Seated Cable Row – 20lbs
Hammer Curls – 8lbs first set, then down to 5lbs
21’s – Bicep Curls – 5lbs each hand – Do you remember these from high school gym class? They remind me of it for some reason!
Preacher Curls – 5lbs
And lots of stretches, especially hip openers, like Pigeon Pose. I had very achy hips last night so wanted to make sure I stretched them out.
For brunch we took it easy, banana bread with almond butter, fruit salad and shakes made by Chad with protein, coconut almond milk, spinach, flax and blueberries. Sadly I was starving and had the camera out but inhaled it before I could take a photo.
Now for some fun, remember the Clean UP Challenge? Well it is draw day!
Congrats Amie you are the lucky winner, we will be in touch with you!
This afternoon we met my family at Cone Castle, a local ice cream place turned cafe. They had some really good looking pies but I am not a pie fan so after seeing everyone’s pie I wanted something so I opted for the $8 banana spilt if everyone promised to share.
Share they did! My brothers demolished it.
We had a very full fridge tonight after a weekend of leftovers so I opted to use some of them up. I took the leftover filling from the Quinoa Stuffed Peppers (The Healthy Wife) and put them into wraps with some shredded cheese and baked them at 350 for about 20 minutes. Along with them I made my latest obsession and craving, kale chips.
My plans for the night now involve watching two week’s worth of the Carrie Diaries, I love AnnaSophia in it and her hair, to die for.
Anyone a Sex and the City fan?
I have never seen the show! I read the Carries Diaries books but that is it.
What is your favorite hip stretch?
