At least twice an hour…
That’s how many times I woke up during the night last night. UGHH! Between a runny nose, an overactive bladder, and inability to just get comfortable, it was one of the worst nights of sleep I’ve experienced in months. I tossed and turned all night long, and actually debated on just staying up at my 4am wake up.
I did get back to sleep for another hour before the alarm went off, and I, surprisingly, didn’t feel completely tired and out of it; in fact, I was actually awake and thankful to finally just have an excuse to get UP. Luckily, my day so far has gotten off to a MUCH better start than last night did!
Our BodyPump instructor informed us last week that she was going to be “test driving” some of the newest release this week in class, Release 79, even though it’s not set to launch until next weekend. We only did the first five tracks (Warm up, squats, chest, back, triceps) to the new release- which included music from Lady Gaga and Sean Kingston- and finished up with an old release. From looking at the full tracklist, I’m really excited to give the full release a try!
I followed up class with 20 minutes of intervals on the elliptical while jamming out to my new playlist, and then hightailed it home for some breakfast.
Oh, hello there,
oats buckwheat in a jar. So awesome of you to join me this morning.
Today’s batch was awesome:
- 1/4 Bob’s Red Mill Creamy Buckwheat
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1/2 mashed banana, stirred in at the end
- blueberries & raspberries
- 1 tbsp Love Grown Foods Cocoa Goodness granola
The simple switch from vanilla extract to almond extract made this batch incredibly delicious. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to go back to the vanilla!
Well, unless I’m able to actually get my hands on some pumpkin…then I’ll go back to using the vanilla. But first, I have to find some cans of the stuff since it appears to be hiding from me. Anyone local out there know where I can get my hands on some pumpkin?!? I guess I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled while I’m out running a few errands this afternoon.
Hopefully, all of you are easing back into the week after a nice, long holiday weekend! Here’s what you may have missed around these parts:
- Labor Day Happenings
- Coffee Delay
- Sarah & Jeff Get Married (+ a dancing video!)
- Wedding Sneak Peek
- This Looks Familiar
- Sarah & Jeff’s Rehearsal Dinner
Stay tuned this afternoon for a yummy recipe…it has fall written allll over it!
