Awesome Friday Workout, Donuts, & Indian Food

by Courtney on October 30, 2010

I don’t think I can remember the last Saturday morning I was able to spend sleeping in without an alarm and lounging around in my PJ’s. I am LOVING today! :) So far it’s been spent doing both of the above, enjoying some delicious coffee,

(I love the reflection of the leaves) ;)


and a little baking. It smells Aaaaa-MAZING in this house right now!


So I totally let yesterday’s blogging slip away from me. Before I knew it, it was 9pm and I was absolutely exhausted. BUT, let me fill you in on some of the highlights from my day…


I got my Friday started out on the right foot with a great workout from Exercise on Demand. I was actually horrified to find out that my recent go-to video, “Rock Hard Total Body Workout” was taken OFF! OH NO?!? :shock: So I quickly scanned through the other videos and was lucky enough to find a winner: Jackie Warner’s Power Circuit. It doesn’t incorporate a whole lot of cardio, but it works each of the major muscle groups individually by doing 3 sets of moves, followed by a “powerburn.” Judging by the absolute, total body soreness I’m feeling today, I’d say it’s definitely worth doing again!


Breakfast was a delicious, healthy treat! A vanilla flavored Chobani, mixed with some pumpkin butter, 1/2 a sliced banana, and 1/2 cup Quaker Oatmeal Squares.


Thennnn, things took a turn…



That darn Dunkin’ Donuts!

Being Coffee Friday, I went to get my usual treat of Pumpkin Spice coffee, but since I was going to be specific with my order, I decided to go into the store (going through the drive-through with a specific order is asking for trouble…). Well wouldn’t you know, immediately upon walking in, I spotted Pumpkin Munchkins! :shock: How am I supposed to turn a pumpkin munchkin down??


I’m not. ;) So I bought 5 (because that’s the only way they’d sell them to me??) – 3 pumpkin & 2 blueberry cake. I enjoyed 2 pumpkin and 1 blueberry, and kindly gave the other 2 away. It’s a good thing I did, since the second half of my day brought me face to face with this:


Yes my friends, that is a delicious, warm, fresh out of the oven cider donut. It was phenomenal, and I wished I had bought a 1/2 dozen, rather than just one. Actually, I don’t. I would have eaten all 6 of them yesterday…and that would not have been good. Either way, it’s pretty obvious I was having a super healthy day. ;)

The reason I was able to enjoy a yummy mid-day cider donut was because my class had a field trip to a local farm/corn maze!


What you see there is a “Right Hand Only Maze” where you could only take right-hand turns to get out. Aaaaand guess who completed it without cheating?? That’s right, THIS GIRL! :-D I was so proud.

After a long day at the corn maze & pumpkin patch, I was able to wind down with a delicious Indian Buffet Dinner Date with Jen!


I really don’t know what any of this stuff is that I took…but I do know what most of it was pretty darn delicious and I had probably about 3/4 of what you see here.


Plus 2 pieces of naan, which I’ve concluded that I could most definitely eat every day of my life. It’s so good.


Uhhh ohhh, I think I hear the timer on my oven going off…time to go check out my goodies!! Gotta run!

Hope you’re having a great Saturday! :)

Oh I loooove naan. I could totally eat it every day too…definitely the best part of an Indian dinner!! Hope you’re enjoying your Saturday :)

Pumpkin AND apple cider goodies in one day?! I call that a good day ;)

I wish we had a Dunkin Donuts in our town..or take that back..I’d probably be living on a diet of donuts and coffee..but hey, life would still be good! :-)

I woke up on Friday morning to do Rock Hard Total Boady workout on demand as well- it is my go to workout when I don’t want to leave the apartment. I was so upset when I found it was gone!! A lot of workouts have been removed. I hope they bring them back!!
