Isn't it Ironic

Guess who crept into my dreams last night?

Alanis Morissette

The one and only Alanis Morissette!

Odd, huh?

Has a celebrity entered your dreams recently?

In my dream, Alanis was leading my high school diving team in a motivating cheer before a meet. The cheer was simply all of us singing Ironic at the top of our lungs.

“It’s like raaaaaaain on your wedding day! It’s a free riiiiiiide when you’ve already paid…”

What a classic. ;)

Workout

I totally forgot about my dream until an Alanis Morissette song came on my iPod at the gym and triggered the memory. :)

(Oh, and in case you’re wondering, I definitely have more than one Alanis song on my iPod. Jagged Little Pill was one of my first CDs and I still love it. )

This morning I brought back a lil’ HIIT training into my life.

I hopped on the treadmill for 30 minutes and completed about 20 minutes of HIIT training.

30 Min. HIIT Workout

(Ryan and Mama, how awesome is this Excel sheet picture I made!? Aren’t you proud!?)

The actual HIIT training only lasted for 20 minutes, but that was more than enough! It felt easy in the beginning, but by the end I was huffin’ and puffin’.

Woo-wee, I was a sweaty mess afterward!

After looking like a loony switching back and forth from sprinting and walking on the treadmill, I hopped on the elliptical for 20 minutes of light cardio with the latest issue of Oxygen magazine.

I flagged two yummy lookin’ recipes in the magazine so stay tuned!

Breakfast

Ladies and gentlemen, little Miss Peanut Butter Fingers doin’ what she does best:

Me + PB!

Why-oh-why are peanut butter fingers so gosh darn delicious?

Clearly peanut butter was the star of my breakfast.

I enjoyed a peanut butter and strawberry sandwich on a honey wheat Arnold sandwich thin.

I also sipped on a hot tumbler of my gym’s free coffee (Barnie’s cinnamon butter cookie… SO good!).

Tuesday's Breakfast

Any meal with peanut butter is a good one. :D

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to blog reader Alison!

    I LOVED her CD when I was younger too. I don’t still have it to listen to, but man I wish I did.

    HIIT training is great. Looks like your workout was a good one and I’m glad you enjoyed it. I miss it for my cardio, but gotta keep things calm these days. Boo!

    I love your breakfast idea. I do the same thing for M’s lunch. :D

    OMG Jagged Little Pill was my first CD! That and one of Celine Dion’s…such an eclectic taste in music ;)

    I can’t put PB on anything without taking a little swipe with my finger…it’s just too tempting.

    You PB fingers remind me of Puck from real world San Francisco…except you’re a whole lot prettier than him, lol.

    I ran with my dog this morning and thought of you and Sadie! It was fun!

    I just stumbled on your blog this morning, and I’m glad I did…I love it! I’m a huge pb fan myself; it tastes great on everything!

    I’m going to have to try a strawberry and peanut butter sandwich now. I have never thought I making a sandwich like that before! I always make banana and peanut butter sandwiches though…yum! Thanks for the awesome idea! :)

    I love Alanis! Have you seen her “My Humps” video on Youtube? It’s hilarious!

    I made my bf that exact breakfast this morning. He’s trying to gain weight and I’m helping him by making him bloginspired meals. He’s loving it so far :)

    Have a fab day girl!
