For some reason I have a great feeling about the week ahead. Maybe it’s because Ryan’s birthday is on Wednesday or because I have a fun trip to Orlando planned for this weekend. Or perhaps it’s because today started out with a heaping helping of peanut butter?
Whatever it is, I’m going to roll with the positive feelings!
When Ryan and I walked out into the garage to hop in the car to drive to the gym today, I shivered and immediately ran back inside to grab a fleece to wear because it was 48 degrees.
Yay for crisp fall mornings!
I think the chilly temperatures invigorated me because I had a pretty stellar workout.
After 20 minutes on the elliptical, I did the following leg workout:
- 100 squats (non-stop at 80 pounds!)
Three sets of 15 repetitions of the following:
- Step ups
- One-legged leg press
- Front squats with exercise ball
- Ab work on exercise ball
Talk about a delicious breakfast!
I prepared a bowl of old fashioned oats cooked with milk and topped with peanut butter and mini chocolate chips.
I love the peanut butter and oatmeal combination. It’s so creamy and satisfying.
Sadie was not happy I decided to add in a sprinkling of chocolate chips because that meant she couldn’t lick the bowl clean. Unhappy dog.
Isn’t her little pumpkin shirt adorable? My mom and I almost bought her a lion costume for Halloween this weekend but they didn’t have it in her size. I think it’s a riot that Sadie likes dressing up! She loves to be cuddled under the sheets and I think that when we put her in doggie clothes she thinks she’s being wrapped up and cuddled.
Though she looks cute in her pumpkin shirt, nothing will top last year’s costume. What a little ham.
I’ll be back soon with the very first PBF book club post! For those of you who participated by reading Room (thank you!), I’ll have a post up shortly dedicated to my review of the book and several questions for all of us to discuss in the comments section. Should be fun!
