Today, something awesome happened at the gym. I was doing upper body weight training and there was this guy by my side doing some heavy stuff. I mean, the weights he was lifting were probably far heavier than me... and I was there, doing my thing, singing (yeah I sing out loud while working out), he came up to me and asked what was I training for. And I was like "excuse me?" And he said "you for sure are from some team, right? Voley? Runner? It's a really specific training you're doing, it kinda looks like you really know your stuff". Ok if he was trying to hit on me he truly knew where to go heh. I told him I wasn't training for anything specifically, I just liked to do weights... and he asked me who made my exercise list, and I said I do them myself, that I do research and write them down so I can change the routine always...Anyway, the point is the guy is a personal trainer and hearing that from him truly left me stoke. I'm serious business with my workout ha! Wait until I become a sports physician and you'll see.

*Warming up - 20min elliptical, level 15,

ps here: I've been doing this for quite a bit and it's been awesome. Weight training is great for releasing fat from the cells but not really to use this fat afterward. What you should do is an aerobic exercise after training, so this fatty acids previously released can be used for energy. :)
Let's talk business, right? So it's been a while since my last post... sorry guys, for that I didn't make an extra effort at all. So here is Friday's lunch.
Oysters with onions, tomato and ricotta cheese, and my broccoli obsession continues...
So I mentioned it's a holiday here in Buenos Aires since last Thursday... gym didn't open on Friday, so I woke up at 7am, took the subway to where I used to live and came running from there. Best decision ever. It has tons of parks one next the other and I was able to fit in a 8K. So proud. I might be doing this all weekends now to improve my distance run... :)
Friday night went over my friend's house to hang out a bit...
Opening a wine with a knife is not just talent. It's art.
As for Saturday, my lunch was so so good...
This would be tuna, spinach, tomato, onions and ricotta cheese on a whole wheat 984393 grain bread and broccoli. Spread those babies on the toast and it's sex in the mouth.
I came back from the gym and ended up talking to my roomie about guys and all that... so when I realized it was almost 1am and I still needed to shower! So no mood for cooking, I used the leftovers from lunch and did a bread-pizza.
I spread the tuna mix on the bottom, covered it with unsalted cheese (I know I'm weird) and put it in the oven. Quick and yummy. It might have been followed by more almonds than people have in their lifetime.
How do you guys manage your time? How do you keep your mind set with your priorities? I would love to know so I can be awesome like you!
Have you ever opened and wine with a knife?
Tons of times... hey, it's wine and there ain't nothing that can keep me from drinking it.
Really random, but did you guys watched American Idol last Thursday?
Holy lord, I cried big time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought Casey was going to have a heart attack... it was beautiful. (Steven Tyler style).
pps. I STILL CAN'T FEEL MY %SS!!!!!!!!!!!!
