I <3 Gyros

Friday night Ashley came over for dinner and we had a nice time making gyros with lamb. They came out super delicious. I’m telling you, you can’t go wrong with the gyro recipe from Eat This Not That Supermarket Survival Guide. We also putzed around on our laptops and overall had a nice low key evening. Bonus: I have leftover lamb for more gyros!

Later that night I was waffling over whether to go to a spin class or step class Saturday morning. I knew I wanted to do a strength workout, but I wasn’t sure what kind of cardio I wanted with it. I decided not to set my alarm and see when I woke up. I would figure out cardio later. At 8 am on Saturday, this little bundle of joy woke me up.

Both classes started at 9, so I could have made either of them, but I was really slow getting going in the morning. I decided I would do either elliptical or the treadmill at the gym for cardio (I debated running outside, but decided against it). This may not seem like a big decision to some people, but for me this is pretty huge. I don’t like running. I don’t like running outside. I don’t like running inside. I don’t like simulated running that’s better for your joints.

Even so, I did a warm up on the elliptical and I voluntarily did 15 minutes of running/walking on the treadmill. I’m fairly impressed with myself. I’m very excited that I’ve been being active so that I can say “I want to run on the treadmill today” and then go do it. A few months ago, I definitely would have laughed at you if you told me to do that.

Today I also ran some errands (I had some items to return at Nordstrom and Gap) and unpacked some boxes. I finished unpacking three boxes and I’m already starting on my second box of things to give away. Woo hoo! Hopefully tomorrow I’ll get through some more boxes and do some furniture re-arranging. 🙂
