Good morning party people! I hope your weekend is off to a good start.
Mine is… now. I am usually the first one awake in our household, though Ryan and I seem to both be early risers and are almost always awake by 7 a.m. on days when we can sleep in. It’s sick.
For whatever reason, I was awfully tired this morning and Ryan awoke before me. He assumed I was awake as well and preceded to brush his teeth and get dressed for the gym in our room as I remained in bed.
Now this wouldn’t normally be a big deal and I might be able to sleep through the commotion, but what made it impossible to continue sleeping was a certain furry female who paced across the bed – and therefore my body – as Ryan walked around the room getting dressed.
Sleeping in is not allowed under her watch.
Once I was up and forgave Sadie and Ryan for ruining my peaceful slumber, Ryan and I drove to the gym to get in a quick morning workout.
We began with 20 minutes of steady state cardio on the elliptical before splitting up in the weight room.
I ended up doing a scaled-down version of my 1000 Rep Workout before calling it a day.
As we headed home, Ryan was hit with a craving for his favorite hot cakes from McDonald’s, so we made a pit stop at the golden arches.
I ordered an iced coffee and a fruit ‘n’ yogurt parfait to eat at home with a bowl of steel cut oats that I pumped up with egg whites, banana and flaxseeds.
Topped with a scoop of almond butter! (The oats were similar to my banana vanilla protein oats but with egg whites in place of the vanilla protein powder and flaxseeds in place of the hazelnuts.)
Plans for the day include:
- Walk Sadie
- Swing by Hobby Lobby + A craft project
- Dinner with friends
See ya later!
