Thank goodness that today is off to a better start than yesterday. Somehow, my morning usually seems to set the tone for what the rest of my day is going to be like and, well, let’s just say that yesterday was a day. Hey, we can’t win ‘em all, right?
Today, however, is already going much, much smoother, starting with an early morning BodyPump class. Unlike yesterday, I was definitely feelin’ this morning’s workout and I have a feeling I’m going to have some sore muscles tomorrow; I just wish the instructor would start using the latest release again…this old one is, well, old.
I was actually pretty surprised today though, at just how small the BodyPump class was. Typically, the 5:45am class is packed, but by the end of class today (since there’s still people who leave early) there were only three of us left. That’s practically unheard of! The instructor blamed it on the fact that the weather is getting colder (hello, brisk 39 degrees this morning) and more people want to stay inside curled up in their beds. Yes, I’d love to curl back up in my warm bed right about now!
But as silly as that might seem, I totally believe it. Even though I (usually) still somehow manage to get it done, getting up and out the door when the temperatures drop is definitely more of a challenge than it is, say, in the spring and summer months. That chill is brutal! But hey, it’s a commitment I’ve made for myself and I’m stickin’ to it.
Folks, I think we have a new record here on STSL; this week may just be the longest running repeat breakfast streak ever. I’m shocked (but not really) that I, once again, craved my eggs + pumpkin gingerbread combo.
I was too hungry to think of a ketchup face today, so you get polka dots.
And today’s punkin’ bread got another nice smear of cinnamon raisin PB. I savored every last bite of it since I knew that it will no longer be here for me tomorrow morning…
Yup, that’s right. I have made it down to the very last slice.
Half of it got nibbled on this morning, and the other half was cubed up and put into another helping of this yogurt mess.
It only took me four days to polish off that bread all by myself. I’m impressed.
Now it’s time to go finish putting the rest of today’s eats together and off to work I go. Stay tuned this afternoon for a fun little giveaway!
