Today feels like a bit of a flashback to my old routine.
Ryan and I woke up around 5 a.m. and drove to the gym together for a workout. It felt great to check my workout off the list first thing in the morning and have a little extra time with my husband!
I began my workout with a quick five-minute warm up on the arc trainer before I hopped off and went through 10 rounds of a fast functional workout.
After 10 rounds of that bad boy, I was spent! It was a good one!
Once we arrived home, I quickly blended myself a smoothie to take on our morning walk with Sadie.
In the mix:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 2 handfuls fresh spinach
- Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
It was already hot and humid outside before 7 a.m., so this cold smoothie was the perfect treat to enjoy during our warm one mile walk.
Once we arrived home, I quickly showered and sat down to type up this blog post. I will be heading off to work as soon as I press publish!

Question of the Morning
- If your schedule was wiiiide open, what time would you prefer to work out?
I definitely prefer to work out right after I wake up in the morning. I like setting my day in motion! However, I must admit that sometimes I am quite sleepy when I go to the gym right after I wake up and I would probably get a better workout if I waited to work out an hour or so after breakfast, but that doesn’t really work with my schedule most days. I guess this is a long way of saying that I prefer to work out at the crack of dawn, but the quality of my work out improves if I work out around 9 a.m.
