I know a bunch of you out there are just as pumped as I am for this festive fall month. Bring on the cooler weather (if you don’t live in Florida), the changing leaves (if you don’t live in Florida) and the pumpkins (hallelujah, we have those)!
A quick glance at my calendar reveals that there is a lot to look forward to this month!
In chronological order:
- Ryan’s 30th birthday (This Saturday!!!)
- Terry & Janelle’s wedding in New Jersey
- Gettysburg with my family to visit my grandmothers
- Race for the Cure 5K
- Merri & Pete’s wedding in Sarasota
- Three year wedding anniversary
Though most of the upcoming events have been on my calendar for quite some time, the trip to Gettysburg popped up last minute and we just booked our flights last night. My grandma Mimi (the grandmother who makes the best sugar cookies in the world) is having some health concerns and my mom, dad, sister and I are planning a short visit to see her and my other grandma during this gorgeous time of year in Pennsylvania.
I was able to sneak a trip to Gettysburg in last year on the tail end of my trip to Baltimore for FitBloggin’ and am excited to return again this year. It’s a beautiful town and I’m more than ready for some quality time with my grandmothers.
But this weekend it’s off to New Jersey for a wedding! Ryan is the best man in Terry and Janelle’s wedding (on his 30th birthday!) and we’re arriving in New Brunswick early on Friday. I love traveling and I love weddings, so I am really looking forward to our time in New Jersey.
My first October workout took me to the gym at 5 a.m. for a leg workout that focused on heavier weights and drop sets. It was challenging and I have a feeling I am going to be quite sore tomorrow.
Breakfast this morning was similar to yesterday’s morning meal but incorporated more color!
Scrambled eggs + Chicken sausage + Sweet peppers + Broccoli
Served with an apple on the side.
Now it’s off to work! Tomorrow is the launch of the Livestrong program at our gym so there’s lots to do today!
Question of the Morning
