Better Late Than Never

Ryan is the alarm clock guy in our house. He sets it, turns it off and is basically the master of the annoying morning buzzer.

Unfortunately Ryan forgot to change the alarm time from 6:30 a.m., which is what if was set for on Friday, to 5:30 a.m. this morning. Around 6:15 a.m., I heard an “Uh oh…” from his side of the bed when he realized his mistake.

Though I was a little disappointed about missing my typical 5:45 a.m. BodyPump class, I still figured I could get in a decent workout on my own. We arrived at the gym 45 minutes later than usual, but hey – better late than never, right?

My morning workout looked like this:

Total-Body Weights Workout

(Once again, the weight noted is the total weight used. Ex: I used two 15 lb. dumbbells for chest press, totaling 30 lbs.)

I alternated the exercises in groups of two (super-sets), up until leg extensions. (Ex: I did one set of step ups, then one set of shoulder raises before repeating the sequence two times to complete the exercises).

Post-Work out Walk

After the gym, Ryan joined me and Sadie on our morning walk.

Special Guest

It was such a treat to have some extra time with him in the morning.

I think Sadie was more than thrilled to have the extra company as well.

Breakfast

Breakfast this morning was a good one!

I started with a yogurt bowl that included fresh blackberries and blueberries.

I topped the mix with Gerber Graduates strawberry apple puffs. Yes, it’s baby cereal, and yes, it’s delicious. šŸ™‚

I also enjoyed a homemade chocolate chip muffin that I made last night.

When I went to my friend Laurel’s apartment to hang out yesterday, our friend Merri brought over a ton of food from her pantry since she and her boyfriend are in the process of moving, and I nabbed the muffin mix!

Chocolate Chip Muffin

When I made the muffins, I added a bunch of white chocolate chips to the mix for some additional chocolate flava.

Moist and Chocolatey

And I should probably add that a peanut butter finger was also enjoyed this morning. šŸ˜‰

Typical

Pretty darn tasty!

    Surely our scientists know more about chemistry that nature does, so surely they should
    be able to come up with some far better for our skin
    than any of these natural oils and butters you read about.
    The term natural means only pure ingredients are used directly from nature as opposed to
    synthetic ingredients and organic products simply means that the molecule comprises of carbon and natural skin care products have no boundaries with
    regards to organic or natural products. Limejuice can also be a helpful skin aid.
