Childhood Revelation

Hey ya’ll! I have a little bit of time so I thought I’d stop in.

Here’s what I ate:

Meal Food Calories
Breakfast Corn Flakes 100
Almond milk 40
Lunch Left over pizza slice 240
Snack Strawberry milk 150
Dumpling Soup 250
Dessert Frozen Yogurt 350
Drink Straw-ber-rita 150
Total 1280

Once we arrived in KC last night, Joosung had dinner ready for us! He made a tasty dumpling soup with potatoes, zucchini, and green onion.

After dinner, Sarah showed us a show she had found Netflix called 30 Days. We watched the episode where two people try to live in a sustainable living community for 30 days. The community is called Dancing Rabbit, which is located in Missouri. The people that live there grow their own food, build their own houses, use solar energy, and drive cars using vegetable oil. It’s so cool! Something not so pleasant is they recycle their waste, “humanure,” to use as fertilizer. That’s the trade-off of being sustainable.  It makes me want to produce less waste. I already recycle but I should be using more compact fluorescent light bulbs, walking or biking more to places, and composting! Someday when I have a house I’d like to also switch to solar power. That can be pricey though. Anyways, if you haven’t seen the show, you should! It really made me consider my impact on the environment.

After some Netflix we decided to walk to a district called Westport. It’s a pretty neat scene with some bars and shops. We were on the hunt for some froyo though. Daniel and I shared a bowl with Cheesecake, Salted Caramel, and Pistachio frozen yogurt. We topped it with a variety of candy…

The pistachio was my favorite. I’m already craving more!

After froyo we walked back and watched more Netflix while drinking some Straw-ber-ritas. We decided to relive our childhood by watching some Rugrats and Wild Thornberrys.  Together. That’s right, there’s a movie where they meet each other, called Rugrats Go Wild! Did anyone else know about this? Spike talks to Eliza! It’s hilarious. Any 90s kid would appreciate it. If your respect for me has dramatically increased due to enlightening you on this phenomenon, you’re welcome.

So for workouts. I didn’t get a run in but I made due with a little Pinterest inspiration. I looked through some of my old pins for workouts and found this one.

It’s a 10-minute video of some Crossfit exercises. You do 4 exercises, each one for a minute, then stretch and do them again.  You keep track of how many reps of each exercise you did in a minute and then the second round you try to beat that score. I didn’t keep track, I just tried to keep up with the instructor. It was hard! I probably could have gone faster but I was feeling lazy. My legs feel a little sore today. I’m definitely going to have to do it again soon.

Then I felt like I needed an arm workout.  Here’s what I did:

  • Triceps Dips
  • Bicep Curls
  • Military Presses

I did 12 reps each, 3 times.  I used my 5 pound weights. Those military presses were hard by the end! Yes, lifting five pounds was hard. Whatever. That’s how to get stronger! Eventually I’ve invest in some 10 pounders.

Alright, I’m off to get ready for Emily’s party. Have a lovely saturday!
