Yay, it’s finally Friday!! I’m so happy the weekend is almost here and I know you all are too. As I mentioned yesterday, my gym had a water pipe burst yesterday so the whole gym was closed. Sadly, one of the weight areas looks like this (picture from my gym’s Facebook page):
Because of the water damage, they had to move some of the circuit weight machines into the free area by the cardio section and close off basically half of the gym. This meant we were all bonding a little bit more during our workouts this morning!
My gym isn’t crowded at 5AM, but when everyone is basically working out in one room it feels a little bit more….cozy. I didn’t really feel like waiting for weight machines and being elbow to elbow with my fellow gym goers, so today was a plain cardio day.
I thought about running, but then remembered I only have 4 episodes left of Gossip Girl before the series finale, so I decided on the adaptive motion trainer instead so I could watch an episode. I’m sad that Gossip Girl is ending, but I’m also glad that I’ll finally get back to other forms of entertainment!
I completed 45 minutes of cardio intervals, working my way up to level 20 and back down again. After finding a tiny corner to stretch in, I left for home to shower. If it felt crowded at 5 AM I can only imagine what it’ll look like at 5 PM. Hopefully they can take care of the water damage soon!
For breakfast today, I was craving a savory sandwich, so I sauteed some mushrooms and red pepper in butter before adding eggs to the pan. I made my sandwich with sprouted rye toast, light white cheddar cheese and some dijon mustard. It turned out super delicious!
I washed everything down with a glass of almond milk while typing up this post and today’s breakfast is definitely filling.
I’m off to work for the day. We have early acceptance letters going out today so it’s all hands on deck at the office. Not sure yet what’s in store for the weekend, but I’m excited to have a couple days off. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and I’ll see you on Monday!
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
Is your gym crowded when you go? How do you handle the crowds?
