Well hello there, friends! Thank you all so much for your well wishes from this morning. I feel like I every time I turn around lately, I’m hitting you guys with a new change in my life. But hey, change is good, right?!
Alright, so I never got a chance to fill you all in on my morning, so let’s hop to it. First of all, I don’t know whether it was the excitement of the new job or what, but I was in the best freakin’ mood this morning. Typically, it’s not that I’m in a bad mood in the mornings, it’s just that I tend to be fairly quiet.
But I’ll tell ya, I had a great start to my day! Maybe the fact that I finished my monster 80-minute workout all before 7:00am had something to do with it?
Oh yes. Today was Day 16 of the challenge, and I was already well aware of what I had in store for me. This was actually the first time that I’ve gotten to try the Xtreme Core workout, and it certainly delivered. Not a whole lot of crunches, which I liked, and a whole lot of action on the obliques- I am a fan!
Post-workout, I showered and got myself ready for the day before diving into breakfast. I really wasn’t in the mood for anything in particular, so I sort of grabbed a little of everything, attempting to hit a few different food groups.
P.S. – Did you know that Chobani is coming out with 3 new flavors this January?? Word on the street is that there’s going to be Apple Cinnamon, Blood Orange, and- oh crap, I can’t remember the third. I think it’s something tropical?? Either way, they all sound awesome!
Being the first day at the new job and all, I didn’t want to pack anything that would require too much effort on my part, since I’m sure there will be lots going on. So I kept things easy with a pumpkin spice bagel topped with peanut butter, pumpkin, and banana slices.
I also have an apple and some baby carrots + cherry tomatoes, to round out the meal, also making it easier to space things out throughout the afternoon.
I’ll be back later tonight to fill you guys in on the first day!
