Ash & Lew Plus 2 Rotating Images

Pumpkin Green Monster

This morning has been pretty great. Minus the rain…I love rain but I had enough of it yesterday.

This morning we woke up early so Lew and I could attend our second spin class! I think I am addicted!

I tried something different with my food routine this morning. I am trying to get things figured out for pre and post workout food. I think today’s routine is working out well.

On the way out the door I ate a piece of German Dark Wheat bread topped with peanut butter with a glass of skim milk.


After spin class we were going to take the Cardio/Strength Interval class but when I went to check it out I saw it was the instructor that does step for 40 of the 50 minute class. I am not a fan of step so we decided we would skip that.

After the workout I made a smoothie! With pumpkin! I am now freezing but this awesome smoothie was worth it!

I am still starving and am thinking about making chicken enchiladas for lunch!

    I wish my lunch was fun- but was not- McDonald’s snack wrap. One day reading your blog is going to motivate me to run again- I hope soon- my clothes are not fitting so well :( lol
