Happy MY FAVORITE DAY Day!
We made it through another week—it felt like a long one but the weekend is finally heeeeeere!
A couple of things that absolutely MADE my morning-
I swear I wake up every morning, mouth watering, SO excited for my morning oatmeal!
In the mix-
½ cup oats
1 Cup Water
1 Tbs Organic Pumpkin
1 Tbs Flaxseed
1 Tbs Almond Butter
I was pretty much licking the bowl when I was done—tasted like dessert!
Can’t forget my yellow? Egg whites from Costco
#2 The book-Something Borrowed is becoming a MOVIE!
GAH! I absolutely just fell IN LOVE with this book a few years ago, along with all of Emily Griffin’s others of course. I actually remember having the conversation with The BFF about who we could see playing the part of each character (of course I don’t remember who I chose) but I LOVE the actual cast so far!
For those of you who have read it- Kate Hudson will be playing Darcy & Ginnifer Goodwin will be playing Rachel! LOVE it!

This time I followed my workout with 20 Min of HIIT on the Stairs. Usually I do my cardio before weights, which I know is a total faux pas, but for some reason it gets me pumped and actually gives me MORE energy than if I were to do it afterwards. But I was lifting with The Boo and he got RIGHT down to business—unfortunately I didn’t have the energy I usually do! I made it through and actually broke a few PRs soooo maybe it wasn’t so bad!
I have a question for all of you Gym-Goers. How do you feel about Gym etiquette? Personally I feel that there are a few rules that should never be broken in the gym-
- Share equipment-don’t hog 1 machine for an hour—let people work in while you rest
- Clean up your SWEAT- Nothing worse than getting on a machine and putting your hand into someone else’s mess! ICK!
- Unload your weights when you’re done-this is high up there on the list for me being a girl and being new to the weight room—half of the weights that are left on the machine I can’t even lift off (that’s when a Boo comes in handy) so it’d be nice if it were empty when I wanted to use it!
- Good Hygiene-Please wear deodorant! Please DON’T wear an excessive amount of perfume or cologne! *cough* Thank you!
- Don’t Throw or Drop Weights- It’s scary and you could really hurt someone!
Do you have any pet peeves at the gym? Any golden rules you feel should never be broken?
After the gym I made some Cod that I had left from earlier in the week—
And then I officially decided that I DO NOT like Cod. Have you ever thought you liked something but then you come to realize that ehhhh you’re just not that crazy about it? I’m not a picky eater—I’ll pretty much eat ANYTHING. Until now….no Cod for me! It’s a shame too because it’s pretty much the best choice of fish and has SO many health benefits! I guess I’m just a Salmon kinda gal.
I did still eat it and everything else was great-
Brown Rice-Aparagus-Spainch salad topped w/ some Salsa
Dessert was some more Cottage Cheese….mmmmm! LOL
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I’ll be going HERE on Saturday in Downtown San Diego for a birthday dinna and then out on the town…hope the weather stays as beautiful as it has been!
