For those of you who tweeted to me last night during The Bachelor, yes, Lindzi did bring Ben to my new hometown of Ocala to meet her family!
And yes, Ocala is known for horses. Ocala is actually known as the “horse capital of the world.” Fancy, huh? I live in quite the happenin’ place!
Ryan and I were waiting to see if Lindzi took Ben anywhere out and about in Ocala to get some more ideas of fun things to do in our little town, but they stayed close to home. Looks like riding horses really is one of the main forms of entertainment here!
Too bad our steed is a bit smaller than most…
Today’s workout began with 10 minutes on the arc trainer, followed by 10 minutes on the elliptical.
Then it was time for some strength training! I spent about 35 minutes completing the following exercises:
Last night as my mushroom and spinach wheat berry mock risotto was simmering, I took advantage of the wait time and chopped up a bunch of vegetables to use throughout the rest of the week.
It was a nice lil’ time-saving shortcut that came in handy this morning!
I used chopped onion, red and yellow pepper in a three-egg and cheese scramble and loved the added punch of flavor and color. Plus, they were much prettier than typical scrambled eggs!
These eggs were so good that I’m considering making tonight a “breakfast for dinner” kind of night!
Question of the Morning
- What is your hometown’s “claim to fame?”
- What do you think your hometown should be known for?
Ocala is all about horses and Orlando was definitely known for all of the Disney theme parks, though there is so much more to both places! If you have plans to travel to Orlando, I highly recommend venturing outside of the parks and taking in some of the other wonderful things that the city has to offer. I list my favorite “non-theme park” activities in this post: Orlando: The Non-Theme Park Side.
