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:
(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.
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 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.
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!
When I made the muffins, I added a bunch of white chocolate chips to the mix for some additional chocolate flava.
And I should probably add that a peanut butter finger was also enjoyed this morning.
Pretty darn tasty!
