I slept pretty horribly last night. I have a lot on my mind right now and woke up frequently throughout the night, unable to roll over and quickly drift back to sleep.

When the alarm went off this morning, I was awfully tempted to skip the gym but somehow talked myself into a workout and I’m so glad I did.

My morning five mile run got my day started on a positive note. Beginning the day with a workout does so much for me mentally. It sets the ball rolling and I am generally ten times more productive.

Here’s to a productive day!


Breakfast this morning began with a cup of vanilla Greek yogurt that I paired with a plate of scrambled eggs, ham, zucchini and mushrooms.

    When I worked nights I always started my day off with a gym session and I felt really good! (my start to the day was about 2pm!) Everyone else was in the gym either getting off work or a mid day workout and I was doing my morning workout! haha

    Good for you for getting the workout in! I woke up at 2am this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep, my body has just been in a funk lately so I decided to take the day off from working out even though it usually makes me feel much better, I think my body needs it today.

    Hate when that happens! I had a migraine Saturday-Tuesday. It caused me not to sleep more than two hours each night. Horrible. Made me less that fun to be around. Thankfully, the migraine left and I have been able to sleep the past two nights. Much happier camper now!

    Just found your blog via Pinterest (gotta love pinterest!) and am enjoying all your workout & recipe info! I look forward to trying some of both soon. I also have a quick question for you….do you eat breakfast before you go to the gym? If so, how long do you wait before you begin your workout after eating?

    I haven’t been sleeping well either lately! I think it’s the time of year too. There is just so much going on that it’s hard to turn off at night. Here’s to a good nights rest tonight, for the both of us! 😉

    Ugh, I hate sleepless nights! I never sleep well the night before a morning race. I went to bed early with a sore throat on the night before the Cleveland Turkey Trot and probably got about 3 hours of sleep. Fortunately, the race was my best yet. I had a lot of fun writing that race recap!

    Hope everything is okay with you 🙂 My day started off fantastic, as I woke up to a beautiful text from my boyfriend. OH the awesome breakfast and workout that followed was also the cherry on top!
