Man oh man those TRX straps own me! They’re seriously legit and get my arms shaking as I try to stabilize myself. I have a feeling sore triceps are in my future after today’s upper body workout.
I began my time at the gym with a two-mile run before completing the following exercises:
And just like that, it was time for breakfast!
On the menu for today was strawberry banana overnight oats that I made by combining the following in a Tupperware container last night:
- 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
- 6 ounces strawberry banana Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 banana, sliced
This morning, I added a few fresh banana slices on top before digging in.
Nice and thick!
Camping: Love It or Loathe It?
This weekend as my family and I sat around the campfire making s’mores on Saturday night, we started talking about our old camping adventures. (Shout out to those of you who noticed Ryan drunkenly paying homage to the song “I Wear My Sunglasses at Night” around the fire.)
Ryan joked with my parents saying that I describe my family’s camping adventures as the holy grail of camping. Seriously though, my family and I had a blast camping when I was growing up and I have wonderful memories associated with our camping trips.
I told Ryan that we were “gourmet” campers. We slept in tents and everything, but when it came to food, we made seriously delicious meals over the campfire, like beef stew or trout caught fresh from a nearby stream.
Just check out the tent my parents set up:
Our tent looked more like this:
Only minus the bear.
Since I wasn’t an early riser until after college, as a child my sister and I would sleep in on camping trips and wake up to the smell of bacon and eggs cooking on the campfire. It was fantastic!
I haven’t gone camping with my family in years, though I have pitched a tent with friends. (<—I really need to bust out my awesome hat from those pictures again!)
Camping adventures with friends include lots of beer (Natty Light, baby), granola bars for breakfast and hot dogs on a stick for dinner. Not quite the same thing as family camping, but fun in a different way!
My family and I are hoping to plan a fun camping trip next month if the timing works out with everyone’s schedule. I’m already excited about it!
Question of the Morning
- Camping: Love it or loathe it?
- What is your favorite thing to do on a camping trip?
Love it (obviously) and my favorite thing to do while camping is hike, make s’mores and play random games around the campfire like Would You Rather? and Catch Phrase.
