Yesterday's RunDown

After the obligatory e-mail/twitter/facebook/blog checks, a big glass of water and a spoonful of fresh-ground natural peanut butter & organic dark cocoa I set out with the hubs for an hour long cycling session, in which the first 45 minutes I was actually smiling and enjoying the ride and the last 15 minutes of hell I was gritting my teeth in fear that if I opened my mouth the words would not be pretty!! As I said earlier, I am not a cyclist, but I am trying hard to become one, but these hills in Auburn sure make it hard!!

After stripping off my sweaty clothes, food was all that was on the brain!! Post-workout fuel was a whole wheat Thomas Bagel Thin smeared with almond butter and a couple dabs of honey along with fruit salad (strawberries, kiwi, blueberries, and peaches). After spending a few hours splitting time between housework and work on the computer, Braden and I ran a couple errands and went out for lunch at Cheeburger, Cheeburger. Thinking Cheeburger, Cheeburger was a healthy, vegetarian-type 'burger' place we were quite surprised when we walked in the door and realized it was 50's style diner, with the menu being filled with burgers, fries, and shakes!! Since we were already there and do eat meat, we figured we might as well give it a whirl and ended up splitting a burger and onion rings. If you are ever looking for diner-style food it would be the perfect option, as the food was good, but just not what we were expecting, and not as healthy as we like to eat.

After finishing some projects around the house, Braden and I headed out for workout #2 of the day. We had hopes of running stadiums, but unfortunately got kicked out of the stadium by the construction crew and instead resorted to playing tennis. Side Note: Braden and I are both ultra competitive, so when we play tennis we take it the the extremes, playing full court, always trying to out do the other. Not only do we enjoy and thrive off this, but it affords us a great workout, as it is basically 60 minutes of very short sprint intervals with little to no rest!!

After tennis we headed home to enjoy dinner and watch a new-to-us show, BostonMed. The show was very good, though working in cardiac and pulmonary rehab, it made me feel almost like I was at work, especially when watching the scenes about the heart transplant patient, as I have a couple patients I am working with who are currently waiting on transplants....sad stuff!! I definitely for-see this show becoming one of our regular shows, which is a big deal, as we only have 4 shows we DVR/watch regularly (America's Got Talent, Biggest Loser, Law & Order: SVU, and Parenthood).

**What shows do you DVR/watch regularly??
