Our dinner plans were canceled, so Future Husband and I decided to get a nice workout in. But we’re so sick of the gym! We played a little pigskin instead.
We went to a nearby park and played catch for 22 minutes. I wore my heart rate monitor and tried to keep my heart rate up the entire time.
(Gawd, I’m such a loser!)
If I didn’t catch the ball, I had to drop and do two push-ups. If Future Husband didn’t catch the ball, he had to do five push-ups. 🙂 Future Husband would throw the ball about 20 yards from whenever I was at so I had to sprint after it. Whenever I wasn’t running after the ball, I did jumping jacks in place.
It was a really fun workout! Here are my statistics:
- Duration: 23 minutes
- Average Heart Rate: 137 bpm
- Maximum Heart Rate: 168
- Calories Burned: 140
It was so cool out, and the park looked wonderful as the sunset. I LOVE AUTUMN IN FLORIDA!
Around 2:30, I had my usual cereal + yogurt with some raisins and almonds.
Around 4:00, the munchies struck…. HARD. I knew that a little snack wouldn’t do it for me (mentally) so I made a PB sammie.
And as a result of my larger mid-day snacks, I wasn’t really that hungry for dinner. I used Pacific Natural Foods Organic Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato soup and added in stir fried veggies.
A dollop of Fage completed the meal…. mmmm perfection!
Well, off to watch about 1,000 episodes of backed-up programming on our TiVO to watch. 🙂 Have a wonderful night!
and that is it for september.
stay tuned tomorrow for my comments on your blogged life from the month of October, 2008.
