I set my alarm so early, because I really had been wanting to check out the new YMCA. And after my run the night before, I was feeling so great that I wanted to run the next day too and figured why not go to the new gym?
I got up, made coffee and toast and watched some I Love Lucy. I got dressed and left before 6am!
When I got to the gym there weren't too many people working out. A couple of people on the treadmill, a couple on the elliptical, a couple lifting weights. I had already decided that I was going to run. So I got on one and got started. I wished they had some treadmills without the TVs on them. I was listening to my music while running and having that black screen inches from my face was a little annoying. If it wasn't there I could have watched the swimmers down in the pool or looked outside.
I managed to get to 3 miles before having to give up. I hate treadmills and I was surprised I made it that far. I decided to walk around the track a few times that they have circling the outer perimeter of the workout area. Then I stretched before heading back out.

After I got home from the gym, I jumped in the shower right away. Then I made some vegetables up with rice to use as a fajita mix for lunch that day. Having to buy my lunch yesterday didn't work out well and I ate WAY too much, so today I made sure to prepare something.
It has green, yellow, and orange peppers, zucchini, mushrooms, and green beans. I added some chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder for seasoning. Then put in some rice I had cooked up already. I ate it on a tortilla with some salsa for lunch. It was quite yummy.
After work, I was pooped. I had to change and get ready to go shopping with my friend. We went down to the Prime Outlets in Pleasant Prairie. She had a couple of things she wanted to buy and I just love going to check it all out. I finally found some running shoes I like and after doing some Internet research found that buying them at the Outlet will be cheaper.
After the Outlet, we stopped at Taco Bell. I tried the new Cantina Bowl. It was pretty good, but I think it would be better on a tortilla. I'm not sure if I would ever get it again.
I think I will take today as a rest day. I close at work the next two days, so I think I will just run tomorrow morning.
Happy Hump Day!
