Happy Friday morning!
Sorry for no follow-up post yesterday evening…that little thing called “life” happened, and I just didn’t have the time. Don’t worry, you didn’t miss much…it was a busy day with meals on the run!
So I don’t know what it is, but for some reason, I am so much more motivated to get up and work out on Monday and Friday mornings. Maybe it’s the fact that I know I don’t want to go to the gym in the afternoon on these days, but either way, I’m just glad the motivation is there!
This morning, I
woke up bright eyed and bushy-tailed rolled out of bed (I said I was motivated…but I never said I’m good at waking up early! ) and got to work on a couple videos (one new, one old favorite) from Exercise on Demand:
New: Bootcamp Calorie Burn with Kendell Hogan (30 mins)
- This video was pretty good. I think it would be suitable for most ability levels, and was actually not too difficult. I was looking for something more cardio based, with constant movement – this video definitely has you constantly moving, but doesn’t have too many intense moves. Not sure if I’ll try it again?
Old: 10lb Slimdown YOGA (24 mins)
- Love the vinyasa flow with this workout!
I feel like it’s been forever since I last enjoyed some overnight oats, let alone OIAJ. But lucky for me, Jay just recently finished off his jar of PB and I was quick enough to make sure he saved it. Yummmmm.
In the jar:
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup vanilla almond milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1/4 cup pumpkin
- cinnamon & pumpkin pie spice
- lots of leftover peanut buttery goodness
Of course, no oats would be complete without a little topping! Enter: granola.
I don’t have my mug-o-coffee yet, since it’s Coffee Friday, but I’m pretty sure I’m craving some hazelnut today…we’ll see. Hey, maybe that’s some of my motivation for getting up and moving on Friday mornings??
Check out this fun surprise I found yesterday!
Charlie from Sweet Salty Spicy was “sweet” enough to pass along the “One Lovely Blog Award” to me. Thanks so much, Charlie!!
Aaaaand, I actually have a little “Fashion Friday” for you all a little early this morning!
I decided to switch things up a bit from the recent Fashion Fridays, and give you all a little sneak peak today’s outfit, “Before & After” style:
This outfit is obviously lacking something. The shirt (which is NEW from my latest Old Navy purchase!) is just too baggy and does nothing for the figure. And when it comes to skinny leg jeans? Well, not only do the stylish black socks do nothing, but they could definitely be “kicked up a notch,” right?
Look at what a little accessorizing can do! Nipping in at the waist with a simple belt does a world of difference for this shirt! When I first tried it on in the dressing room, I thought it was awful. Luckily, I had a belt in the room with me, and as soon as I put in on…complete transformation!
How ‘bout those boots?? They’re vintage!
And even better yet, they used to be my Mom’s! She gave them to me a couple years ago, saying that they were some of her favorite pairs when she was younger. I don’t get an opportunity to wear them too often, but I thought they’d go great with today’s attire.
Alrighty folks, I’m out…time to go get the coffee!!
