The weather today was phenomenal. Or, I should say, the weather until late afternoon was phenomenal. Then it was beyond crappy. That’s Chicago for ya.
At lunchtime it was sunny and 61 degrees. I decided I wanted to get outside and enjoy it while it lasted, so Maddux and I took a nice little jog/walk to the dog park during my lunch break.
Wow, was it nice getting out in the sun. No coat for once!
After work, I headed to the FXB gym and got my ass thoroughly kicked (even more so than usual). It was a kickboxing day. Kickboxing and what seemed like a million burpees, push-ups, planks, and sit-ups. Brutal. But man, it feels awesome finishing a workout like that.
Now I’m just chillin’ on the couch, watching American Idol, and drinking a mint smoothie (banana, spinach, vanilla protein powder, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, ice, mint extract).
Bedtime soon. Goodnight, all!
