Oh, boot camp. I look forward to you all week!
Today’s morning boot camp class was a good one, but not quite as good as past classes. I enjoy circuits, but like to have a bunch of stations set up that we go through two times. A smaller amount of circuits that we do three times through isn’t ideal for me because I start to get bored and feel like the circuits are redundant. Gosh, I sound so hard to please!
Today’s class included three sets of a smaller amount of circuits. I did two rounds before calling it quits and hittin’ up the elliptical while waiting for Ryan to finish his workout because my mind just wasn’t in it.
Today’s breakfast was wolfed down in no time flat!

I had very little work to do in terms of making my breakfast this morning because I prepped a bowl of chocolaty overnight oats last night and simply added some banana puffs cereal to the mix this morning.
It was fantastic and I felt bad that I couldn’t share with Sadie because she looked up at me with pleading eyes as I ate every last bite.
Sorry, kid. Chocolate + dogs = No go!
A banana dunked in peanut butter was also enjoyed on the side.
Last night I had a great time just hanging out on the couch with Ryan and Sadie. Ryan and I discussed our short-term and long-term goals for the future and throughout the night, I grew more and more excited for the possibilities that await us in the coming months and years.
The longer we talked, the more and more excited and involved in our dreams I became. At one point, I told Ryan that we had to stop because I felt like I was getting too wrapped up in what might happen in the future and I found myself feeling dissatisfied with the present, when, in fact, the present is pretty darn good.
Once an idea gets into my head, I can become obsessed with it.
I want it to happen now… or yesterday.
This is a good thing in that I feel like I am a driven and ambitious person, but it can be a bad thing because I am also impatient and immediate.
A lot of the dreams Ryan and I share are based on things that might happen. I skip two or three steps ahead and get lost in la-la land. But you know what? I’m not sure that la-la land is a bad place to be!
Envisioning a goal coming to fruition in the best possible way is great motivation to work toward accomplishing that goal. Sure I get scared that I may set myself up for disappointment by jumping ahead and assuming everything will work out perfectly, but picturing the best possible scenario also lights a fire within me to make my dreams and the dreams of my husband a reality.
I’m really not sure what is in store for us in the upcoming months because our current dreams are dependent on a lot of factors, but I am excited to keep on truckin’ and find out. Don’t worry, I definitely plan to let you guys in on our plans and ambitions as well. Changes, they are a-brewin’!
