In order to save a little money this year I quit the gym (well I have one more month) so organized a little space in the house to create my very own! I would love to have this in the garage, but right now itâ€™s too cold.
I have a few of my favorite workout books and magazines. Plus a candle for Yoga Practice.
My workout DVD collection and a Yoga book my Daddy gave me.
Weights..I have 3, 5, 8, and 10 pounders.
An 8 pound medicine ball + jumping rope + bands.
My exercise ball that serves as a chair as well.
The DVD was intense but WONDERFUL as expected. There wasnâ€™t as much cardio as I anticipated, it focused more one ABS, ARMS, LEGS, and GLUTS. This will be a great video to do in combination with running and kickboxing! I loved it because I got a full body workout in my own home and for FREE! I still get to go to my kickboxing gym and shoot I get paid to do that!
For Date Night Hubby and I drove around for an hour trying to find a NON-CHAIN restaurant to go to that we had never been to before. We had some great convo in the car but couldnâ€™t find anything, so we settled on a local Thai Restaurant that I have been to a couple of times.
It was almost 8 by this time so we ordered a Tom Kah Kai Soup for an appetizer and dug right in! I almost forgot to take a picture because we were so HUNGRY!
Of course I ordered the Yellow Curry with half chicken and half tofu. The portions were HUGE, I am going to have a great leftover lunch 😉
They also had a choice of Brown Rice, a huge PLUS!
Hubby had the Sweet and Sour Chicken with the sweet and sour sauce on the side (he just really wanted breaded chicken).
I only had half of my meal because I was saving room for dessert of course. We decided to try Golden Spoon for a change. Itâ€™s not self serve but it is low fat and yogurt.
ANOTHER HUGE PORTION!!!! I ordered the small and she gave me a MOUNTAIN! It is half peanut butter cup + Heath Yogurt with non fat fudge brownie, almonds, peanut butter cups, and toffee!!! WOW a little too much!!! I ate the top portion and saved the rest for later.
The thing I love about Date night is that Hubby and I can act spontaneously! Sure we do plan dates sometimes, but there is no real agenda and we get to take our time!!! We are such big planners that this helps us to just sit back and enjoy each other without having to look at our phones, watches, clocks, agenda books, computersâ€¦.
Good Night World!
P.S. I am praying I can get up early for a 4 mile run!!! The cold weather is killing me!
