Cool People Sing While They Vacuum

Morning folks! It’s Monday again, blah. ha ha :)

Despite only getting about five hours of sleep on Saturday night after our concert, yesterday I actually managed to drag myself to the gym and get in a great cardio session. I started off with one of my favorite treadmill work-outs, which was especially difficult yesterday and I actually had to take a couple of 30 second breaks to get myself through it:

Then I made my way to the elliptical for another 15 minutes. I finished off my work-out with about ten minutes of ab work:

  • Leg raises, 3 sets x 15 reps
  • Ab crunch (machine), 3 sets x 20 reps
  • Torso rotation machine (is that what it’s called?), 3 sets x 15 reps each side

 

The rest of the day was pretty low-key. My car was in need of some serious cleaning, both inside and out, so I spent an hour of my afternoon here:

I’ll spare you some before and after pics of the inside of my car, mostly because I’m afraid that I will scare you off and you’ll never read my blog again. Let’s just say that when your friend thinks he saw a rotting banana peel in your back seat, it’s time to clean.

Oh, and did you know that vacuums double as microphones?

Singing your heart out to Lady Gaga while you clean makes the time go by so much faster ;)

(For the record, it was not a banana peel that he saw. It was actually a yellow bungee cord that I used for my bike one time. Come on, even I’m not that gross!)
