Monday Update

So this weekend was completely, unproductive on the workout front, Friday night I went to work at 11:30 and because I owed the guy that covered for me Christmas morning I had to repay him and work his day shift so I didnt get out until 4pm Saturday. When I did get out I was completely useless.
Sunday wasnt much better we drove to Mass to finish up our Christmas with Rays family. Nobody in my family had met Rays dad or Grandmother so we invited my meme to come with us for the ride. The added benefits we took her car which is really good on gas, and she paid most of dinner at Hilltop on the way home and after the food we had in Mass it was a very good dinner.

Monday morning I had FD training at work that only lasted a couple of hours so I headed to the Y directly after and this is what I did.

bike 2 miles: 7:45 minutes, level 10
walk/run, 25/0 minutes: 1.43 miles, speed 3.5, incline 4.0
swim,warmup, freestyle 50 yrds, cooldown 50 yrds:
1/4 mile 15 minutes, fastest lap 1:05 + 20 min relaxing swim=
total laps 20

I also did about 20 minutes of freeweight work on chest and shoulders between the walk & swim

When I got done I headed over to Walmart to spend the gift cards we got, actually spent more than the gift cards but we wont have to buy household stuff for quite a while which will be nice.
I went and picked up Mike at school and we headed to Trans in Biddeford they have the cheapest fruits and veggies around its run by two oriental people who are so funny she runs the registar never leaves it and never speaks, he packs your bags and RUNS to the door to hold it open for you and keeps saying Tank U tank U. The place is great I get a full hand basket plus 10lbs potatos for under $15 every time. Love it especially now that we have the dehydrator we have been drying lots of pineapples, apples and kiwi I cant wait for the strawberries and other good stuff to come back in season. I am trying to get the boys to eat more healthy snacks so I also picked up stuff to make my own trailmix/chexmix Mike helped and really liked it. Next adventure I'm also trying to get us away from refined stuff, going with natural sugar when I can and using wheat flour instead of white so far they guys havent minded. I cant go gluten free yet its just to costly right now maybe in the future. We really just love pasta to much still :-)
