Two Routines Friday

Ok — I say it every week.  But I make no apologies — HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE 🙂 Once again, this week has seemingly flown by on my side.  Which I never complain about {well. . . maybe besides the fact that I have no idea where the time goes anymore, but I’ll save that for a different post}

Last Night

With Thursday being my late day, the first thing Zach and I did when we got home was get started on dinner.  photo 1

We made Veggie Quesadillas, to which I made mine BBQ with a small side salad and pretzel thins.

To make the quesadilla, I simply put carrot shavings, mushrooms, some Anaheim peppers in a pan with bbq just to heat up, then added fresh tomatoes, and peppercinnis.

They were DELICIOUS and I already want the same.exact.meal tomorrow.

I had a special treat at the end of the night as well . . .

Sorry for the dark pictre — but I had the BEST ice cream in the world.  It’s just a Safeway mint chocolate moose tracks, with a fresh cookie.

I don’t have this kind of treat very often — especially when we have an entire pint, because I CANT BE STOPPED.

I had this small cup, plus another small cup of the ice cream + one spoonful.  I’m a monster!

Thankfully I had gone on a walk to help move dinner around so I didn’t feel too rough — but man oh man.  Portion control Ashley!

This Morning

I woke up this morning a little weighed down by the ice cream, but ready to move after a good rest day.

My work out started with another 22 minute cardio routine from SELF, that had me right at 2.55 miles in 22 minutes.


I then jumped into my favorite hill and sprint routine

Which I did modify a bit (just shorter warm up and cool down since I had already done the previous routine).

I finished right around 46:30 and walked it out until 50 minutes for 5.16 miles total.  I was a SWEATY mess but felt AWESOME!

Now it’s time to enjoy some yogurt and frozen grapes and get to work!

Question of the Morning:What is one dessert you can’t control yourself on?

  1. Sounds like an awesome way to start the day!!

    I would say I can’t control myself when it comes to anything ice cream or chocolate related…Phil keeps asking if I can make detox approved ice cream, haha – I’m working on it!

  2. I have absolutely no control around granola. It’s ridiculous. I also have issues with raisins. I can’t just have a handful.

    Sounds like you had a great workout today!

  3. With it being Easter season…. Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs bring me to my knees. It’s a problem. I don’t know why the egg shape makes a difference, but I just can’t resist! Thank goodness they’re only around this time of year.

  4. mint chocolate moose tracks sounds insane! I have no self control when we have any decadent chocolate dessert in the house.

  5. Mint chocolate moose tracks…….I couldn’t even read the rest of your post…I had to stop and think about that for a while…….love mint and chocolate!
    That was quite the workout! Well done lady!!!!
    Jr Mints, Chocolate Mint ice cream (summer only)….ahhh now I want some 🙂
    Hope you have a GREAT weekend!

  6. froyo is my fave — when i first moved to NYC i had it allllll the time, so now i try not to get it super regularly and treat it more as a special treat.

  7. Ben & Jerry’s Pineapple Passionfruit Greek Frozen Yogurt. They discontinued it, however. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing. Lol. Totally miss it. 😔

  8. Way to go for your good runs! I’ve been playing it safe this week because my shins are being wimpy again.

  9. Grrr, that picture on the magazine cover of the chica from HIMYM reminded me how conflicted I am of their series finale. I’m still not sure if I’m sad, happy, or angry. Grrr. :0

  10. I love your workouts – thank you for posting! I’ve been writing them down and getting some great ideas. Can I ask what kind of speeds you do for sprinting, jogging?

    I’m finding Easter hard – can’t go into supermarkets as mini eggs are everywhere… Don’t know if you have them in the states but I’m addicted and once I start I just can’t stop! One tube is meant to be four portions….. Hmmm unlikely!
