Bike commute 3 of 4 days: DONE
Run 4 mi, 4 mi, 5 mi, easy: DONE
Complete two Jillian/core workouts: DONE
MISSION 100% ACCOMPLISHED!
Not a bad way to start the year.
My butt cheeks and shoulders are already dying from Level 2 of Jillian's 30-Day Shred video this morning. Hoping tomorrow's bike commute helps to loosen everything up.
So right now we have a couple guys from Michigan visiting. They are both contractors who are out to re-roof and frame our friends' unfinished attic. While they're here, we're hoping they have time to replace our basement windows and install a couple new exterior doors. On their next visit, we want to frame in our basement, insulate, etc. and get ready to finish. Eventually, when our basement gets done, a treadmill will be in my future!!!!!!!
Of course, that's some months and a tax return away.
Anyway, so while these guys are out, there is no way I'm doing exercise videos in my living room at 6 AM. I need to find a substitute for my core workouts for the next two weeks...likely I will be slacking a bit.
On a food note, we got SUNCHOKES delivered in our produce box this week. They taste pretty good but strange in that they have the consistency of a potato but flavor of an artichoke heart. Anyone have any good ways for fixing these things up? Last time, I just sliced & baked with (mmmmm) butter. Tonight, I sliced them up with some red potatoes and am making into a gratin. Cooking suggestions welcome!
