I love this month. Yes, it’s probably because it’s my birthday month (April 27, baby!), but I also feel like April is when the weather starts really changing for the better and the sun starts shining a little brighter (in between the “April showers” of course).
What are you most looking forward to in April?
This month I have a bunch of exciting things to look forward to:
- 5K Doggie Race with Sadie on Saturday
- My sister’s sorority’s mother/daughter/sister weekend
- Meeting the designer of my wedding dress
- My 25th birthday!!!
It should be a good month!
Today’s breakfast was a chocolatey delight: Brownie batter hot cereal! Ahhhhhh!
I combined Flax-Z-Snax chocolate cream hot cereal with a scoop of All the Whey chocolate peanut butter cup protein powder, a tablespoon of cocoa powder and some water and microwaved it until it was hot and super thick!
I enjoyed my hot cereal with a tumbler full of my gym’s free coffee in Barnie’s cinnamon butter cookie flavor (the best flavor everrrr).
It was a great breakfast after a sch-weaty workout.
My workout today was pretty random. I felt like running, but decided against it since Sadie and I are running in a doggie 5k together on Saturday. I wanted to give my legs a good rest because I feel like I run better in races when I haven’t run several days prior to race day.
My run-less cardio workout looked like this:
- 10 min. stair master
- 10 min. adaptive motion trainer
- 5 min. stair master
- 25 min. elliptical
Can you tell I was easily bored today?
April Fools’ Day
Happy April Fools Day!
Are you playing any good jokes today? Have you ever had a good joke played on you?
One year when my sister was pretty young, my mom and I convinced her to come running down the stairs because we told her that our cat (who was a boy) had kittens. 🙂 Poor Leslie was pretty disappointed to see that no baby kitties could be found.
Two years ago my mom really got me. I had NO idea it was April Fools’ Day, and when I got to work I had a really long email from her saying that she and my dad were adopting a young boy because they were so sad that both my sister and I were out of the house (it was my sister’s first year away at college). I was shocked and even told my boss that I couldn’t believe I was getting a brother. It was then that I realized what day it was and felt like one stoooopid lil’ blonde. 🙂
