I started yesterday off with a 4 miler. Enjoy the blurry river picture.
It was nice to get it done early, and it was a tad cooler than is has been. Don’t kid yourself though, it was still killer hot. Ready for a cool down ASAP! I’ve decided that with how hot its been in Spokane, I’m not going to worry about working on sprints, splits, or anything. Just the fact that I’m out there in this heat running gets me a gold star. Plus, I started Piyo to top it all off. And Piyo is kicking my tush! And abs, and arms, you get the idea. Feels so good to be sore, I know it’s working!
While I was stretching in the driveway before yesterdays run I noticed our neighbor painting her wall, again . . .
I feel strongly that if it’s your property, you can do whatever you want on it (within reason). However, just because I believe you can do whatever you want, doesn’t mean I’ll like it. And I don’t. At all. Now if it was a cool mural of Seattle I might be okay with it. But no, not digging the art.
Anyhow, after running I made an epic breakfast.
But then things went downhill from there. I swear it was the apple cider vinegar. I have a super old bottle I have been using and thought maybe it made me feel a little off last time, but I wasn’t sure. So silly me, instead of using the new bottle I had, I chanced it and used the old bottle. I add a couple tablespoons to my water along with some Minute Made drops. I think I’ve mentioned on here before, but it’s great for curbing the appetite, combating bloat, and a host of other health reasons. I try to drink it at least once a day.
I drank it around noon, with the hope to head out and finish a couple errands after Tyrion woke up from his nap. About a half hour after finishing my drink I seriously felt like I had the flu. My stomach felt horrible and all I could do was lay down and stay as still as possible, until about 5pm. Tyrion was corporative and played quietly on the floor while I laid on the couch feeling like death.
Once 5pm rolled around it was like a cloud lifted and all the sudden I felt fine again. It was trippy. I walked around a bit to make sure my body wasn’t playing games with me, but the feeling never came back. Sadly, my day was pretty much over at that point and I had nothing to show for it. Oh well! I was starving since I hadn’t eaten anything since breakfast, so I made a plate of zucchini nachos!
Grill the zucchini pieces on the BBQ, then bring them inside and place on a plate and top with cheese and olives. Broil in oven until cheese is melted. I topped it mine with veggies, sour cream, and a super mild avocado salsa so my tummy didn’t get mad. It was so, so good! Try it, you will fall in love!
After putting Tyrion to bed I did my Piyo for the day; Core. Out of all the workouts I’ve done so far, core it my least favorite. I hate how my neck and back hurt when doing floor ab work. I always feel like I’m doing something wrong. I’ve done different DVD’s and classes throughout the years though and they all do the same thing. So, I must just be a sissy, or have really squishy abs, or both!
Travis had promised to do a little three miler with Tyrion and I this morning, but sadly he was pretty beat from working late yesterday, so it didn’t get done. Not sure I’ll run tonight since it is again, going to be in the high 90’s today. Might call today a rest day and get out there early tomorrow (my usual rest day). I’ll have to give Piyo all I got to make up for it. Have a great Thursday! I’m off to bake some cakes before it gets to hot to cook. I have a zombie cake to make for a birthday party on Saturday. Never attempted zombies before, should be interesting. See ya!
