My morning was a little rushed since I wanted to squeeze in a 6 a.m. Pure Barre class and still have time to shower, let Sadie out and inhale breakfast before arriving at work at 7:45 a.m.
It was a go, go, go kind of morning and I was grateful for an easy breakfast that included a bowl of my egg white oatmeal and a mug of hot coffee.
After work yesterday, I attempted to find a replacement for my beloved discontinued peppermint crème coffee from Fresh Market. I popped into Marshalls since a few of you suggested combing through the gourmet foods section of Marshalls or TJMaxx in search of seasonal flavored coffee. I stumbled upon Christmas Perk: Mocha Mint coffee and decided to give it a go!
I wasn’t sure how the mocha flavor would taste since I really, really love the stand-alone peppermint flavor of the peppermint crème coffee, but I was pleased! I’ve had chocolate flavored coffees before that have tasted bitter and gross, but this one was quite good and I loved it with a splash of new-to-me So Delicious coconut milk creamer (<— another recommendation from you guys)!
I’m still planning to check out some of your other peppermint flavored coffee recommendations and will be sure to report back. I’m glad there are a few of you out there who share my adoration for yummy holiday-themed flavored coffee!
After breakfast, I worked through the morning and helped my boss at the gym with the December group exercise schedule. I’ll be teaching more classes next month and I’m especially excited to be adding an additional indoor cycling class to my morning schedule… even if it is a 6 a.m. class!
I’m home now on a brief early lunchtime break and will be heading out again soon. I’m planning to use this time to put together my next rockin’ playlist for tomorrow’s spin class. I’d love to hear any recommendations you may have for songs that never fail to psych you up during an indoor cycling class!
