I stayed up later than intended last night and my reason for not getting to bed early is a pathetic one. I try my best to get into bed before 10 p.m. when I have to be up at 5:30 a.m. to teach since I want to wake up feeling energetic, but last night I got sucked into the ridiculous drama surrounding The Bachelor.
I feel like I roll my eyes through half the show but it’s way too addicting and I can’t stop watching. I loved Jade on last night’s episode and think she seems like the most down-to-earth girl at the moment. And Carly cracked me up! I also had major hair envy over Britt’s beautiful waterfall braid. Why oh why do my braids always look thin and pathetic? Teach me your ways, Britt!
Teaching + Breakfast
When the alarm went off this morning, I felt the strong urge to stay in bed but since I had a 6 a.m. spinning class on the schedule to teach, I got dressed, ate a peach and headed over to the gym. Fortunately getting out of bed is the hardest part of teaching a 6 a.m. class for me because once I’m there, I feed off the energy of our little 6 a.m. crew. I love their dedication and admire the spunk and positive attitudes they bring to the bike before dawn.
After spinning, I grabbed a vanilla latte from a local coffee shop before heading home to fix myself breakfast.
I love how Waterbean Coffee gives you little chocolate-covered coffee beans with every cup of coffee you order. Such a neat touch!
Once I made it home, I chopped some veggies and sautéed onion, leftover Brussels sprouts and spinach in a skillet before adding sliced Canadian bacon, eggs (2 regular eggs + some egg whites from a carton), salt, pepper and a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese.
I topped my veggie egg scramble with avocado and ate it along with a banana. Do you guys ever go through waves of obsession with various fruits? For the past few weeks, I’ve been all about berries and apples but right now bananas are calling to me like crazy. Love ‘em so much!
Now it’s time for me to grab a much-needed shower before driving back to the gym for work. I’m hoping to spend some time this afternoon researching new laptops because my current laptop completely died on me and doesn’t seem to be savable. Unfortunately in the past I feel like I tend to select laptops that last for 2 – 3 years before they totally crap out, so I’m hoping to find a better (and longer-lasting) fit this time around. Thankfully, my desktop is the BEST and saves me when my laptop woes kick in. If you have a laptop that you would highly recommend, please let me know!
Have a great morning!
