Sweating, Reading & Shopping

I am currently trying to hang on to every last minute of STAYCATION 2012.

Yesterday completely got away from me and I didn't even check in with you guys! Lets recap what I've been doing

I got in a great morning sweat session.
Set a new PR on the hip abduction(155)+Jump & Drill + Bollywood Sweat.
Best part of my workout?
I was complimented on my push up improvement, even though I haven't practiced at all this summer.
TRX and lifting has improved my chest strength and I think that is what has helped my push ups.

Either way, I'll take it!

After the gym I took my sweaty smelly self to get my blood work done. I was already fasting so I figured get it out of the way and be done with my physical for the year.

Little did I know I would be sitting in the sweaty clothes, in a room with no AC for over an hour.
I know what you're thinking..
I feel bad for the people who were sitting with you.
Fact: They smelled WORSE!

By the time I was finished it was almost noon, so I was famished.
Bagel thin with 1 egg, 1/2 cup egg whites, shredded mozzarella, 1 slice of bacon.

I was fueled up for my trip to Target.
I am currently on the hunt for small envelopes, similar to the size you would send/receive for wedding response cards.
I knew Target wouldn't have them, but I needed an excuse to go and buy things I wasn't planning on buying.
Don't we all?

These are just three of the things that ended up in my cart.
 I also got myself some new pink workout socks ( totally needed them) and a journal from the dollar spot for FitBloggin '12!

I have already started reading Gone Girl and I LOVE it! I spent most of my afternoon/night reading it and plan on picking it up as soon as I finish this post.

More importantly, that combination of vanilla chocolate chunk Chobani and Special K chocolate delight is the best snack ever.
You're welcome.

Eddie and I are off to get haircuts and then we are going out for the Jets VS Giants game later.

What are your Saturday plans?
