Since Saturday and Sunday were basically spent on airplanes and in airport terminals, I would love a day to relax at home. I’m not complaining though because it feels so good to be back.
How could I not be excited to see this little face?
Ryan picked me up from the airport yesterday with a bouquet of red roses and some sweet treats for the car ride home. He must’ve sensed that my sweet tooth was in full gear yesterday!
Call me a total sap, but my eyes started watering when I saw Ryan. I think it was all the drama with the scary plane issues from Saturday or something, but I just felt grateful to be safe and back home with my hubby-to-be (in 12 days!!!).
We spent the evening catching up on the couch and got to bed a little early, which felt wonderful. I fell asleep 2.5 seconds after my head hit the pillow!
This morning I woke up easily and Ryan and I headed to the gym for a workout.
I was excited for BodyPump since I hadn’t done any strength training since Wednesday and wanted to feel da burn!
Unfortunately the normal BodyPump teacher was out and the microphone wasn’t working (two strikes). The substitute teacher also picked the easiest BodyPump release in the world (strike three). Still, it felt good to feel the blood flowing through my muscles. Strength training is my fav!
My breakfast this morning included something special!
Pomegranate arils from the fresh pomegranate I picked in the orchard on Saturday!
Just in case you are in the dark about pomegranates as I was prior to the POM Harvest Tour, the pomegranate arils are the juicy, pink covering that surrounds the pomegranate seed. They hold all of the juice and sweet flavor.
I cut up the pomegranate last night and Ryan tried the arils and loved them. They really do taste like fruit candy.
I enjoyed the arils on top of 1.5 cups of Greek yogurt, along with a sliced pear. I ate half of the pear while cutting it up. Apparently it’s pear season because this pear was on point!
Now it’s time to get crackin’ on a million emails from my days away from the office.
Happy Monday! 😀
