Gooooood Morning!!

I don’t know about you, but I am feelin’ great today – I slept a gazillion times better last night than I did the night before, any signs of the cold I thought I was getting yesterday are (knock on wood) gone, I’ve already finished a great workout, a delicious breakfast, and oh yeah…it’s Fridayyyyy.

I decided to get my workout done right away this morning because I’ve got another day of making cupcakes ahead of me (‘tis the season apparently?). I did a slightly shortened version of my sweaty mess walking intervals, followed up by another variation of my timed stability ball circuit.

I didn’t have my Gymboss near me to time things, so I switched it up by supersetting the exercises and completing 15-20 reps of each. Only two rounds again today because, well, that’s just how the cookie crumbles right now.



Alright, so I was *this close* to doing the waffle three-peat today. But then I decided I ought to space out the good stuff, so I swapped out the ‘ol waffles for an English muffin.


I’m sure you guys are all just thrilled to see this combo again for the umpteenth time this week. Winking smile

Peanut butter + pumpkin, banana slices, chia seeds


Plus the other half of my ‘naner with some of my Planters PB.


It was goooood. And I’d be lying if I said that I haven’t wanted to recreate my breakfasts for lunch everyday this week too. What is wrong with me?!

Alright my friends…I’ve got a full day ahead of me today so it’s about time for me to get crackin’ on that. BUT, before I go, I’ll leave you with my all-time favorite Friday gif…


If that doesn’t make ya smile, well then I don’t know what will. Smile

Question for the Morning:

If there was one meal you could eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a week straight, what would it be?

He Was Lovin’ Life

My little guy got a special treat today…


Cody has since learned how to push open the screen door on the back of the house. Yes, he’s a menace I’ll tell ya. So I figured, rather than fight the battle, I’d let him come out and wander around with me while I did some weeding and watering of the garden (yes, Jay, I did it!).

Talk about overstimulated…he was all over just about everything. Pawing at bugs, pouncing on the grass…


My little guy was lovin’ life. Smile


Backtrack to a little bit earlier today…shortly after breakfast digested I took care of getting in my workout for the day. I started out with two rounds of Tabata, wearing my new Reebok kicks and my Gymboss Interval Timer.


Gymboss actually sent me this probably about a month ago to try out, and I’ve been loving it. I use it in most of my group classes at work but this was my first time using it at home. It’s super easy to program and totally beats having to constantly check a stopwatch. I love it!


My first round of Tabata was this one, which I found today from my fellow FitFluential Ambassador, Brad Gouthro. My second round consisted of burpees, bench dips, push-ups, and mountain climbers…totally equipment free, folks!

After my 8 minutes of Tabata were done, I finished up with a 30-minute walking session on the treadmill. It was a pretty good one, so I’ll work on getting it put together to share with you guys soon. Promise!

Post-workout snack: Pineapple SOYJOY bar (my second favorite behind banana).


Then I went out and did the whole weeding thing with Cody, got my arms all broken out in a rash (no biggie, just my stupid allergies, but they itch like woah), showered up, and made a light, refreshing lunch #1.


A yogurt bowl made with vanilla Chobani, strawberries, blueberries, Kashi Go Lean Crunch & granola.


Perfect for this beautiful day. Smile

I’ve got a couple more hours before a quick shift at work, then I’m off to go join my mom and cheer on hubby, dad, and the “little” bro on at their softball game tonight. I just <3 having evenings with family.

Anyone else have any good plans for this evening?

Happy Friday, friends!
