As Ryan and I walked into the gym, I told him that whenever I wear purple and green together I feel like Barney.
Chalk it up to years of babysitting, but the purple and green color combination always makes me think of the lovable dinosaur!
Ryan then tried to tell me that Barney was solid purple (someone clearly needs to brush up on their Barney) and that’s when the woman working behind the counter at the gym realized what we were talking about and assured Ryan that Barney has a green tummy and green spots on his back!
Other color combinations that remind me of random things:
- Black and gold: UCF (Go Knights!) or bumblebees
- Black, red and white: Chicago Bulls
- Green and gold: Fremd Vikings (My high school! Ryan’s high school colors were actually the same, but he went to high school in Bradenton.)
- Tons of blue: My friend Leah (She loves blue as you can tell from her wedding colors!)
- Blue and orange: UF
- Blue and yellow: Blue Barracudas from Legends of the Hidden Temple
- Red and green: Christmas
- Black and orange: Halloween
Barney is probably the strangest color association I have, huh?
Today’s workout was the perfect way to kick off the weekend.
I did three rounds of a circuit workout that kicked my booty.
It was a good one!
On our way home from the gym, Ryan and I swung by McDonald’s for iced coffee.
Did you know they’re still doing McDonald’s Monopoly? Sadly my iced coffee wasn’t an instant winner.
I was crossing my fingers for the $10,000. Bummer.
I sipped my iced coffee while I ate a bowl of Joelle’s Paleo oatmeal.
As always, I added an extra egg white, a spoonful of cashew butter and used a whole banana. I also changed up my usual flaxseeds! I previously used flaxseeds I ground at home myself since I couldn’t find ground flaxseeds in Ocala for the life of me.
Then, my buddies at GNC came to the rescue and sent me a bag of Premium Gold Flaxseed, and the texture of my Paleo oatmeal completely changed for the better! (I am partnering with GNC through a campaign with FitFluential and reviewing a handful of products that I was able to select that fit my personal lifestyle. FitFluential, LLC compensated me for this campaign, but all opinions are my own.)
I already liked the Paleo oatmeal despite its funky texture, but the new ground flaxseed changed the texture so the consistency reminded me a lot of cream of wheat. I loved it!
I’m off to blow dry my hair and hit the road with Ryan and Sadie for my mother-in-law’s house in Sarasota! She’s hosting a big birthday brunch tomorrow for all of the fall birthdays (Ryan’s included!) and I’m looking forward to some fun family time this weekend.
