Food Coma = Monday Sweat Session

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  I’ll spare you pics of the mounds of food I consumed this weekend, partly because I neglected to take photos after meal #1 (out of 4).  I was either too excited about the spread(s) or too deep in my food coma to notice but either way, it didn’t happen.  So, I’ll sum it up for you: Lunch on Thursday with my mom’s side of the family, Thursday and Friday night meals with Matt’s parents and brunch on Sunday with my dad’s fam is what my weekend consisted of.  Oh, and throw in a high school reunion (10 years- what?!) complete with several glasses of wine. 🙂

This really only shows part of round 1….doesn’t include all of the grazing that happened.  It doesn’t count if you just take small bites, right?! 😉



Needless to say, I was in dire need of a good workout on Monday morning.  Matt and I worked out Thursday and Friday morning and also went on a walk on Friday afternoon, but Saturday and Sunday were rest days for me.  I woke up on Monday morning with the urge to break a sweat.  My leg was bothering me a little so I decided to do a cardio/strength workout, sans running.  Here’s what it looked like!  The Stairmaster allowed me to sweat out the pie, wine and all the “fixins”, and the strength exercises broke everything up so I didn’t feel like I was going to keel over doing 20 minutes straight on the Stairmaster.  Hey, it WAS still Monday morning after all.

Stairmaster-StrengthHave a great day!

  1. The stairmaster is always a good workout. I think that’s one machine I miss here in Kuwait. Neither the gym I used to go too or the one at our apartment building has one. Such a bummer.

    • That is a bummer! I only started using the stairmaster a couple of years ago, but now I can’t imagine not having it as an option. Maybe the gym will take a hint sooner or later! 😉

  2. This looks like a good one! I love breaking up my cardio.. it makes time go by so much faster 🙂 Hope you had a great turkey day!

    • Agreed, sometimes running on the treadmill gets so old and on the stairmaster, all I can think about is how much I’m sweating so there’s no time to think about how long I’ve been going!

  3. Your meal looks delicious!! And good for you for getting right back into the gym!! Well done:)

  4. Love this! I’ll have to do this tonight 🙂 🙂
