This is a great song to workout to, so if you like it, give it a dload. ;)
I woke up much later than I usually do today! I didn't get up till 10! The old me would have been OK with this, but I was actually pretty irritated with myself because I wanted to get my workout done before noon. I originally intended to hit the hike & bike again, but then I remembered that today was the Spindletop Spin, so that meant that the Hike & Bike was probably crowded with volunteers and "real" cyclists. I might actually try to join this event and bike one of those routes next year! I need to get a helmet first, though. Biking on the road really scares me, so I'll have to work up the courage to do this. I can't keep living in fear, right?
Since I rose so late, I decided to go ahead and make lunch. I bought a bunch of mustard greens last weekend, so I wanted to make Sinigang ng hipon (Sinigang with shrimp). Sinigang is kind of like a Filipino gumbo, I guess...but way less complicated. You don't have to make a roux or let it simmer for hours. Well, at least not the way I was taught to make it, haha! I guess mine is "instant" sinigang then. I just buy some tamarind soup mix packets from the Asian Food Mart, boil the mix in some water, and add the shrimp and vegetables once the water's boiling.
|Shrimp, mustard greens, and okra!|
|I enjoyed lunch with some Jason Mraz.|
|Mr. Mraz approves. haha|
|According to this, I burned 524 calories in 1 hour.|
|I did 7,876 strides!|
After my 20 minute sworkit workout, I had to hit the showers. My knees were sweating! Haha!
OOH, and I've been meaning to post a pic of my shiny new weighing scale! The cool thing about it is that I can take pics of my weight now without the camera adding any weight to the scale. It doesn't add any pounds again until you step off then back on. I feel like this can let me be as honest as possible with you guys, too. (Not that I had been lying with my old scale, I promise!)
|I also wanted to show that I lost a couple of pounds. ;)|
And that, my friends, was my Saturday. I am now doing laundry and watching the 25th Anniversary Les Miserables concert. Am I a nerd or what? haha! Tomorrow is youth mass, so I must sleep early to be in Fannett in the morning!
Day 40 tomorrow already!? Woah!
