Sock Shortage

As I was packing my gym bag, I noticed a sock shortage. I finally put together a pair but couldn't believe that I was down to the undesirables i.e. the mismatched along with the ones that need to be darned.

I have about 30 pairs of socks but most of them are currently residing in the hamper. You know what that means? Yes, I need to buy more socks. Of course not. I have enough irregular Nike socks with the swoop in the front and/or back and my real gems -- comfortable Champion socks that I found at Big Lots.

I thought about taking back-to-back classes even though my glutei are quite sore. I didn't nix the idea completely until I saw that the class, Drills to Make You Sweat, was packed. The step platforms made the space even more compact so it wasn't as bearable as the crowded Cardio and Muscle that I took yesterday.

Despite the sore glutei and tender hamstrings, I hopped on a StairMaster and went for 47 minutes (six for cooling down). I climbed 141 floors with an average level of five.

My goal is to, eventually, stay on the StairMaster without stopping for 60 minutes.

When I got home, I did the stretch portion of 10 Minute Solution: Tone Trouble Zones! As always, stretching felt very good and I already feel less sore.

For Dinner? Leftover Senegalese Peanut Stew that I made on Sunday. There was a whole lot of chopping going on but it was totally worth it. A clichéd symphony (cayenne, cloves, garlic & ginger) of flavors, I tell you.


  1. haha! glutei! I love it. I would have said booty, but glutei sounds real scientific and cool. :P

  2. Yum Yucky,

    Laughing My Glutei Off... ;)

  3. Glutei! Too funny!! I don't know if I could do 60 minutes on the stair master or even 10 minutes. I'm a treadmill/elliptical chick.

    I also wanted to let you know that I have a blog award for you, if you don't already have it. Stop by and pick it up when you get a chance.

  4. purple_moonflower123,

    Hmmmm, I think I might have to come up with a new word. Booty-Glutei. ;)

    I used to love the elliptical but we've parted ways lately. Of course, I will use it if I have to especially when the gym is crowded...

    Thanks a lot for the blog award. :)
