I bring you the Snow Day edition
(or what I end up doing when I have an unexpected day off!)
I'll have you know I take my days off very seriously. Since I work every single weekend at job #2 and then usually drive all the way up to the BF's it's rare that I get to spend even a few uninterrupted hours by myself. That being said when I do get the time I tend to go all out on my favorite things :)
I took advantage of the empty house to enjoy a "dance" workout. This means I turn on my favorite Pandora station, which I've tweaked to play everything from The Script to Sara Bareilles and John Mayer, and then dancing to my hearts content.
I'm not a dancer in any sense of the word. And I certainly don't look anything like my favorite contestant on So You Think You Can Dance, but between the jumping and spinning I can knock out 45 minutes of ab/leg/cardio work without even noticing.
Beyond that I spent most of the day in the kitchen. I'll admit right now that I'm a recipe hoarder. Since I've started trying to take better pictures, the lack of a day off thing really makes it hard to get recipes tested and photographed because I'm always at work during daylight hours.
From today alone I made and photographed enough recipes to post over the next few weeks and made enough of a mess in the kitchen to prove it!
Taste testing is (of course) an important part of photographing ;)
I was working on my pushups while watching the Food Network this afternoon when I decided to give planking a go. My goal was a 3 minute plank without stopping by the end of January and I did it, 4 days early to boot!
The "lap" is from where I shifted from up on my hands
to down on my elbows (I'm still courting that as a win!)
With the way today has been going who knows what I'll accomplish with my snow day tomorrow! Anyone else off work (or class) because of the cold?
