On Missing the Elliptical

by Maren on November 25, 2012

Happy Sunday!

Are you all enjoying sleeping in, sipping hot beverages, and staying in your jammies way later than socially excepted???

I am. It’s how I roll on Sundays. ;-)


Maren actually made breakfast! Oh my gosh. The world might end.

I made a simple little breakfast sandwich on a whole wheat bread butt with… a little grape jam, a fried egg, and 3 slices of bacon.

Use a bread butt to make your sandwich extra crusty and cut the bread triangle-ways for flare.

On the side, coffee. And lots of it.



With all the life-drama going on these past few months working out was just not happening. I kept trying to go to the gym but my heart wasn’t in it.

After trying to go a few times I decided to quit going until I craved the gym again. And guess what… This last week, I’ve been craving the gym!!!

I’m really excited, hopefully I can get back on a gym regimen again. I’M TIRED OF WASTING MY GYM DOLLAS, YO!

Ideally, I’m hoping I can get back on my hour elliptical sessions again, then do my M-WODS for total body toning. And if those go well, I’m going to start training for a distance race again. Long Weekend Runs are back on the menu.

This kinda looks like going from 0 to 60 in .27 seconds, but I’ll take it day by day. Ultimately, I just want to be happy and I think sweating will help me be a little bit more happy.


P.S. I might be able to get a dog!!!!! Please keep your fingers crossed for me!
Maren NEEDS A DOG! :mrgreen:

YAYYY for craving the gym again! I totally lost all focus on working out and haven’t in over a week. I must get back into it immediately — what a horrible week to lose it! haha

Your egg sandwich looks yummy. how do you get the bacon like that? i always end up overcooking mine to the point of charcoal. :\

Yay for the craving the gym! Good for easing back into it. Give your body time to readjust and find itself again. Soon enough you’ll be craving more sessions :)

Crossing my fingers for a dog for you!
