Still Not Even Sure

by Courtney on August 7, 2012

Confession: I didn’t really sweat too much during yesterday’s yoga session, so I wore the same outfit again this morning.

IMG_6859

And I have no shame about it either. Besides…I know I can’t be the only one guilty of this. Winking smile

I made sure to get a little workout in right after waking up this morning, since I’ve got a busy day ahead of me. I laced up the sneakers, grabbed my latest book, and headed down to the treadmill for some reading + walking action.

IMG_6860

Today’s workout of choice was the 45 Minute Treadmill Walk, which is always a great choice.

Once that was finished, I came back upstairs and immediately grabbed a banana cinnamon chip muffin with a little butter and snacked on that…I was huuuungry.

IMG_6849

It took me forever to decide on what I actually wanted for breakfast. I must have taken at least three different things out from the fridge, freezer, and cabinet, only to put them back shortly after. It was one of those mornings.

Cody Creeper thought I was crazy.

Eventually, I settled on an English muffin with half peanut butter, half almond butter, banana slices, and chia seeds.

IMG_6852

Plus an iced coffee, of course.

IMG_6856

The muffin was good (I mean, it had peanut butter, of course it was good) but I’m still not even sure if it was really what I was craving.

IMG_6855

Don’t you just hate when that happens?

I’ve got my morning blocked off to work on a few training plans which, honestly, is just so much fun. I am loving working with my clients, creating new and customized workouts for them, and hearing about the progress that they’re making. It’s so rewarding!

I’m still taking on clients, so feel free to check out the programs…could be a great way to buckle down on your own fitness routine for the tail end of summer!

End sales pitch. Winking smile

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Random Question for the Morning:

If you could compete in (and be good at) any of the Summer Olympic Games, which would you choose?

I’d choose gymnastics, no doubt about it. Those girls amaze me to no end. Then again…I do love me a good game of badminton.

Women’s marathon, please! it’s a life goal of mine – and finishing in 2:18 like those women did wouldn’t be shabby at all!

I’ve wanted to be a gymnast since I watched the Magnificent 7 in 1996, so I’d definitely pick gymnastics. I was only 5 when those Olympics were on, so to this day I like to give my parents grief that if only they had let me start gymnastics that fall like I wanted, I could’ve been an Olympian haha. Probably not true, since I’m about four inches too tall to be any good, but since I never did gymnastics, I can kid myself about my untapped potential :P

I would totally be a swimmer. I swam for 13 years but quit when it became more about winning than fun. Sure, I like to win but I swam because it was fun & I enjoyed it. Winning was a bonus. I will say that watching the Olympics makes me wish I’d stuck with it, but not at the price of the pressure to win all of the time.
