Out of control gym machine

After work I went to the gym with plans to do a butt kicking workout to end my week, and I succeeded. I started with abs and legs and then did some upper body exercises, followed by 30 min. on the stairs of HIT training.

When I got on the step mill which is a machine with big rotating actual stairs. The machine I got on, once I got going would take off at a really fast pace on it's own and then slow down. Then it would do it again. After 3 times of this it was freaking me out so I stopped the machine to get on to another one. The machine was stopped but it kept going. I hit the stop button over and over but it just kept going at a really fast pace. I had to make a decision to jump off in a graceful way to not hurt myself. I bailed, went to the front desk and told the girl and that they might want to unplug it. When she told the maintenance guy he came running in a mad sprint to unplug it, it was funny. I then finished my cardio on another stair machine.

For dinner I put together a mix of leftovers.

Spinach and mixed greens with a sliced red pepper salad.

Topped with leftover nacho bake and some salsa. It was almost like a taco salad. The nacho bake all mixed up isn't the most visually appealing thing, but tasty none the less. And too much, my little belly couldn't eat it all.
