Stick Lover

Today’s morning workout was a good one!

I did a total-body workout that looked like this:

  • 20 min. elliptical warm up

Followed by three sets of 15 reps of the following exercises (with the exception of abs, which I have detailed below):

Someone please tell me why planks make me feel like I am dying a slow, slow death.

Walk with a Stick Lover

After the gym, Ryan and I came home to take Sadie on a one-mile walk.

Walking Buddies

During that time, she found three different sticks to use to entice us into playing with her.

"What is better in life than an awesome STICK? Nothing!!!"

Sadie’s affinity for sticks may only be topped by her affinity for McDonald’s cheeseburgers.

"Can't Touch This!"

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to own a calm dog. But then who would I terrorize? 😉


Breakfast today was seriously fantastic and oh-so-simple.

Breakfast Bagelwich

I know it doesn’t look like much, but trust me on this one.

The winning combination included:

  • 1 toasted cinnamon raisin bagel thin
  • 1/2 sliced apple (I ate the other half)
  • 1 slice Swiss cheese

I placed the cheese on one half of the bagel thin and the apple slices on the other half. After toasting the two halves in the toaster oven, I had warm apple slices and melted cheese.

Hot Cheeeeez


Time for a Taste...


I don’t know why I was so enamored with this breakfast, but I couldn’t get over how good it was! It’s all about the cinnamon raisin bagel, I’m tellin’ ya.

Now = Work time. It’s FRIDAY!

    Your breakfast actually looks SO good!

    As soon as I get into a plank, I start shaking. It’s not hard until a bit in, but I always shake!

    You look so cute, Julie! Love the outfit (for some reason I always like to dress up nice on Friday hehe).

    And I hear ya on the cinnamon raisin bagels: I am completely in love. Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that taste the best 🙂

    I don’t think i’ve ever commented before (Hi!) But I just HAD to after my boyfriend leaned over my google reader & said “Where is that one blog you read, the one with that dog…she’s so cute! I want one like her!” While we were discussing the type of puppy we might get!

    p.s. that breakfast looks delish!
