Last night this was not the case.
My mom, sister and I were up almost all night due to some hotel guests that apparently thought playing leap-frog in the room above ours after midnight was a great idea.
Then, around 5 a.m. , guests in the room beside ours decided to blare their television and watch an action-packed Sean Connery movie. Sounds like a lovely thing to do at 5 a.m., no?
Needless to say, I didn’t sleep too well and we were all wide awake around 5:45 a.m. The hotel’s free breakfast was not available until 7 a.m., so we stayed in bed laughing about the crazies who were apparently staying at our hotel.
Once it was time for breakfast, we headed downstairs to a spread of eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, Belgian waffles, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt and bagels.
I fixed myself a bowl of oatmeal, topped with whipped cream, cantaloupe, an orange slice, Raisin Bran cereal, and honey.
On the side I ate about 1/3 of a Belgian waffle with extra whipped cream.
After breakfast, we came back to our room and my mom and sister climbed back in bed for an extra hour of sleep.
I am the worst napper and can never get back to sleep after I’m awake for the day.
Though she didn’t say this on her blog, she must have been joking about the 25 push ups. Puh-lease. You know I did every one of those the “girly” way.
I completed two rounds of the At Home Cardio Blast before heading back up to our room to check on my mom and sister.
This is what I found:
Since they were both fast asleep, I didn’t want to bother them and make noise in the room, so I grabbed my iPod and headed outside for an easy 20 minute jog around the hotel.
When I came back, I hit up the breakfast buffet again for another half of a Belgian waffle (1/4 went directly into my belly and is not pictured).
Thankfully, now the sleeping beauties have begun to stir!
I’m off to hop in the shower before heading out to my sister’s sorority’s mother/daughter brunch. More food!
