I know can’t be the only person who misplaces hair ties all the time.
I swear I used to spend an inordinate amount of time looking for my favorite hair ties until I discovered this amazingly simple idea for a hair tie holder on Pinterest.
Plus, I feel like a lot of people have some kind of a promotional carabiner lying around the house that they can use to make this happen. (I actually got the above carabiner at the Race for the Cure 10K at the beginning of this month.)
Ever since I began using the carabiner hair tie holder, I haven’t found myself frantically searching for a hair tie at 5 a.m. Success!
For the past two days Ryan and I have been playing a little game on the way to the gym that we’ll call “Guess the Temperature.”
Now that it’s chilly in Florida, it’s fun to guess just how chilly it is outside. Today I guessed the exact temperature! 43 degrees. Brr.
When the car’s thermometer got to 47 degrees, one degree below Ryan’s guess, the temperature hovered there for a bit and Ryan started getting cocky. I told him that he already lost because we were playing by Price Is Right rules: Get the closest to the right temperature without going over. Bob Barker knows what he’s talking about. Victory!
Once we made it to the gym, it was time for 20 minutes on the elliptical before I completed an upper body workout that included three sets of 15 – 20 repetitions of the following exercises :
- Superset One: Bicep curls + Ryan’s awesome shoulder move
- Superset Two: Upright row + Tricep pull down
- TRX bicep curls
- TRX tricep extensions
- Push ups
- Tricep dips + Front shoulder raises
- TRX I, Y and T’s
Today’s breakfast was a good one.
I blended the following ingredients with an immersion blender to make pancake batter for oatmeal Greek yogurt pancakes:
- 2/3 cup old fashioned oats
- 6 ounces Chobani strawberry Greek yogurt
- 1 egg white
Topped with a sliced banana and syrup, these pancakes were a great start to the day.
In case you’re in a pancake-makin’ mood this weekend, I highly recommend making my favorite Greek yogurt pancakes. They’re nice and light and have a slightly eggy texture that I absolutely adore. Perfect for a lazy Sunday!
Speaking of the weekend, any fun plans out there?
I will be spending this weekend with Ryan and my family… including my aunt and uncle who are visiting my parents all the way from Seattle! Since none of my extended family lives in Florida, it’s always special when they come to visit.
I wish everyone lived closer!
