As I hopped on the treadmill this morning and pressed play on my iPod, Will Smith’s “Getting Jiggy With It” started blasting which you know made my 20-minute cardio session fly by!

I completed the following workout:

Minutes Incline Pace
0-5 8.0 4.0
5-10 1.0 6.5
10-14 1.0 7.0
14-15 1.0 8.0
15-20 8.0 4.0

I was a sweaty beast by the time I was done.

I meandered over into the weights section of the gym and did a lighter version of one of my go-to total-body workouts. I could not stop sweating and it wasn’t because I was pushing myself extremely hard. It was seriously sticky-hot in the gym. It made me feel fatigued earlier on in my workout and affected the overall quality of my strength training. I guess they can’t all be winners!

I came home to an empty house, as my family was at work and I figured Ryan was on a walk with Sadie. I looked around for my computer to get a jump start on my morning blog post since we wanted to be on the road for Jekyll Island before 9 a.m.

I couldn’t find it anywhere. What the heck!? I figured Ryan used it while I was at the gym and put it somewhere other than where I left it. I began cursing my husband under my breath and went outside to look down the street to see if Ryan and Sadie were at least on the homestretch of their walk. When I didn’t see them there, I said “C’mon!” aloud, which prompted a bark from a nearby dog. My dog! Sadie!

Ryan and Sadie were hanging out in the backyard around the corner so I couldn’t see them. Grr.

I think I need to take a serious chill pill this morning! I was set off by the hot gym and the realization that I forgot to pack underwear for our vacation and the laptop thing irritated me way more than it should have.

So I did what any hormonal female would do.

I ate some M&Ms and felt instantly better. Smile 


A good breakfast also helped improve my mood!

A vanilla, peanut butter and banana smoothie was followed by a small bowl of Wheaties (I finally tried them!) since I’ll need some sustenance to make it through the 5+ hour drive to Jekyll Island.

I enjoyed breakfast while watching Sadie battle it out with a monster that somehow found its way into my parents’ pool.

Now I’m off to steal some underwear from my sister (is that gross?) before we hit the road!

See ya from Georgia!

P.S. The Fashion page was updated this morning.

    Chocolate makes everything better! And the fact that you can SEE that you are angry and then deal with it makes you a great person!

    Enjoy the trip!

    Ugh – I hate when I get in moods like that. Last week my iron broke and I had a complete meltdown – haha! Definitely hormonal. 🙂

    I had the same breakfast this morning first a greenmonster and needed some staying power so I had a bowl of Special K. I just fortgot the M&M’s my bad.

    Did your treadmill workout this evening and it was a quick and dirty way to get tired and real sweaty. Thanks for sharing. Have a good trip and no big deal snitching some of your sister’s undies–this is what sisters are for.
