Rise and shine, pretty people! <—Isn’t that guy fun? He reminds me of Joey Fatone from ‘NSync for some reason. Oh Lord, my teeny bopper ways are showing again. I love you, JTT!
This morning started out with a sweaty workout at the hotel gym.
I began my morning workout with 20 minutes on the elliptical followed by a weights routine similar to the one I completed on Monday, only I incorporated some squats in place of lunges and did Ryan’s awesome shoulder move in place of the shoulder raises.
After the gym, Ryan and I headed to the breakfast buffet to snag some free food.
Today’s menu featured egg patties (um, what?), biscuits and gravy and French toast sticks.
French toast sticks are freakin’ delicious, but these were obviously fried and very greasy, so I limited myself to two glorious sticks before making a more nutritious breakfast of whole wheat toast, topped with banana slices and peanut butter.
PB & B in all its glory!
Quick and Easy Chia Seed Recipes
My latest freelance piece is up on Shape Magazine’s homepage today! Wahoo!
I think quite a few of you caught on to this piece when chia seeds popped up in every other meal on the blog last week.
You’re observant little creatures.

And good news!!! They spelled my name right this time!
Great Fundraising Act Update
Before signing off for the morning, I must give a BIG, ginormous thank you to those of you who participated in The Great Fundraising Act on Monday. In the end, TGFA raised more than $26,000 for Susan’s treatment. Definitely check out Susan’s blog post following the auction. I cried big baby tears. The blog world is full of the most generous, loving and supportive group of people and I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of it.
And a shout out goes to the winner of my peanut butter granola, Katie, who donated $178 to TGFA! Another loving shout out goes to Gina who then matched Katie’s donation and will now be receiving a fun package of peanut butter granola (and lots of other goodies!) as well. You guys blew me away! That’s $356 from PBF readers. Unreal.
