Since both of my parents worked as I was growing up, my sister and I attended an after-school childcare program through elementary school. Butts Up was one of my all-time favorite games!
This morning, I think the swans out by Lake Eola were playing their own rendition of Butts Up.
Sadie was quite intrigued by the inverted birds on our morning walk.
Apparently she’s a butt-lover just like her daddy. 😉
Catching Fire + Workout
We went on our walk after working out at the gym. I was so not in the mood to go to the gym this morning because I didn’t sleep well last night. Ryan and I finished reading Catching Fire and started the third book in the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay.We left off at a pretty intense point which had my mind racing throughout the night.
For those of you curious about my take on Catching Fire, I really liked it!
I was taken by surprise a lot more in the second book than I was in the first book. Both were suspenseful, riveting and definite page-turners. To me, Catching Fire seemed like an interim book and concludes in an unsatisfying way. If you read this book, make sure to have the next one from the series on had to begin immediately because there are a lot of loose ends that still need to be tied up. Hopefully Mockingjay will do just that!
Anyway, after a restless sleep, I wasn’t feeling overly motivated this morning. I laid in bed and told myself I would feel much better after a workout even if I struggled to get myself to the gym.
I was right!
After a BodyPump class and 10 minutes on the elliptical, I felt refreshed and ready for the day. It never fails!
Breakfast this morning was my favorite breakfast of 2011…
Toasted cinnamon raisin bagel thin + Melted Muenster cheese + Fried egg white
With cheese this gooey, how could this meal not taste great?
Breakfasts this good make me excited…
Maybe a little too excited?
