Has this week felt like it’s dragging to anyone else? I knew this would be a rough one- it’s the last full week of school and my first 5 day work week in awhile. I also feel a bit thrown off after getting back on Sunday night and not really having time to adjust back into a routine. But it’s Thursday, so that’s good! It also means it’s time to “Think Out Loud” with Amanda.
My week was not off to the best start when I had the grossest pizza ever on Sunday night. We ordered delivery when we were leaving the airport and the website said it would be about 45 minutes. I called after placing the order and let them know we would be home in 30 minutes. Well 10 minutes later I got a call from the delivery guy that he was at our house. I explained the situation, and he said he would come back. When we got home he called again a few minutes later to make sure we were home. He showed up several minutes later…with cold pizza. I didn’t know it was cold until after he left but we weren’t about to send it back or anything (we were starving, hadn’t eaten in 8 hours, and had no food in the house) and I had already tipped on my card when we placed the order. To make matters worse, the pizza was terrible. We also got mozzarella sticks which I had one bite of and pretty much spit out. I had a stomach ache for about 12 hours after that meal.
I am so excited to have a weekend home without traveling. There’s been so much fun stuff going on, and more to come, but it’s so nice to have a few days to just catch up on life.
As I mentioned yesterday, I am supposed to run a 5k on Sunday. I’m not sure what to expect from the race because of the weather. It will probably be pretty warm out so I’ll just do what I can. I’m not sure if I will take a rest day Friday and do an easy run on Saturday, or vice-versa. Sometimes it’s nice to have a weekend day with no workout, to take full advantage of the day off.
When I don’t run, I rarely get in 10,000 steps. Actually, my Vivofit has decided to make my goal 11,000- I guess this is based on my average steps or something. So it’s kind of funny because Rob has a Fitbit, and he must take much larger steps than me because we can run or walk the exact same distance and I will always have more steps than him.
He suggested I wear it on my left wrist to see if that made a difference. It didn’t, but I guess the Fitbits have a setting for “dominant hand” maybe meaning that it overcalculates because you move that hand more or something? I think my tracker only tracks steps, because burpees don’t count as steps. As that kind of sucks because they are like the hardest thing ever.
Have you ever had really terrible pizza?
What are you doing this weekend?
Do you have a fitness tracker? If so, does it count burpees?
