I didn’t realize that The Bachelorette didn’t start until 9:30 p.m. last night and went until 11 p.m. What the heck is with the late start time!?
Since I figured the first half hour would be dedicated to recapping Emily’s previous journey and I didn’t feel like staying up late, I DVRed the episode and plan to watch tonight. For those of you who watched, are there any guys who caught your eye? I got a text from one of my girlfriends this morning telling me about a super sweet single dad.
(For those of you who asked about my shoes in this picture last week, they are Nike Free Run in Tropical Twist and were a birthday present from Ryan.)
Has anyone else finished this book? The first half was really disturbing and almost too much for me, but I really liked the second half. It was intense and had an unexpected twist!
Since I got to bed nice and early thanks to DVRing The Bachelorette, waking up at 5 a.m. wasn’t too painful.
Ryan and I started our workouts with 10 minutes on the stair master and then I did 10 more minutes on the elliptical before completing a workout that I tore out of the June issue of Fitness magazine.
It was basically a total-body circuit workout, but it wasn’t too heavy on lower body movements which was a good thing since I just worked out my legs yesterday and my hamstrings are a little sore today!
Today’s breakfast was an old blog world favorite!
I remember when I first discovered healthy living blogs at the end of 2008, it seemed like everyone was making The Fitnessista’s breakfast cookie.
Last night as I was eating a spoonful of peanut butter, I remembered her peanut buttery breakfast cookie and pulled up the recipe on my phone and prepped it which made breakfast this morning a breeze.
I didn’t follow her recipe exactly (I added a bit more oats and peanut butter), but it came out great. After topping it with a sliced banana, I dug right in!
Question of the Morning
It’s a random one…
- If you had the opportunity (assuming you are single if you are not), would you ever want to be on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette?
I actually secretly submitted an application for one of my girlfriends to be on the show and she got a call back in February! She already started dating someone by the time they got back to her, so it didn’t work out, but we were pretty excited! (Her grandparents were horrified at the thought of her being in a hot tub with a bunch of guys on national television so they’re happy it’s a no-go.) The people from The Bachelor actually followed up with my friend a few times since then but she’s still happily in a relationship. Kinda cool!
