So, I decided to hit up my apartment's 'gym' as I stated in this mornings post- not expecting much and telling myself I would do at least 20minutes... Well, I haven't been there in AGES- it is ALL updated and new! I wanted to take more pictures, but this grumpy old woman and guy were there so I did what I could! I had planned to go on the treadmill and take pictures for you guys because I said it was from the 80's. Well they have 5 now and they're not garbage! I threw me stuff on one of the ones facing the windows/balcony and decided to try out the elliptical-like machine beside it (Octane 350pro) as a warm up. WOW Brutally hard!
I wanted to stop after 5 min but kept going. I kept telling myself I could get off at 15min, then 20, then 30... I somehow made it to 61 Minutes!!! This is more than I would do at my own gym! I don't think the cal burn was accurate but I wanted to write down my miles. I have no idea how to use this machine, so @ 1hr I pressed 'cool down' thinking it would lower the level and give me 5min. NO. It bloody erased all my stats from the previous 60minutes! I have no idea how many miles I did! oh well.
I felt so proud of myself after this! I was beyond sweaty and marched my ass to the Safeway by me to grab radishes! I have NO food in my apartment. Wow, it was cold and windy, yet deceptively sunny! I had to take a picture of these shrooms! You guys know that I spend about $30 on mushrooms a week! I eat them all the time, and they keep me from binging on crap food. Well, these pictures do not do them justice! They were HUGE! Like FIST sized! I texted my 'weekend' buddy, and we are stopping there first! I then came home, finally put money on rent and am not finished devouring 2 bags of radishes and waiting for my microwave to finish heating my lunch! I got a package today (picked it up from the office when I was paying rent)... Haven't opened it yet, but I hope it is my VEG NEWS win from Kailey!
