Good afternoon! I hope you’re doing well today and that your Wednesday is flyin’ by!
Workout + Breakfast
This morning, I woke up and drove to the gym with Ryan to complete a leg workout that incorporated some plyometric exercises to keep my heart rate up. Not too shabby!
Once we made it home, it was time for breakfast. Last night I prepared another batch of butterscotch oatmeal banana bread bites and ate two while I whipped up a protein smoothie made with light coconut milk.
I used the coconut milk as the base for my smoothie and added a scoop of vanilla protein powder and one and a half frozen bananas which made the smoothie taste a lot like banana soft serve ice cream. Yesssss.
While I finished my smoothie, I worked on my morning blog post before it was time to shower and head out for the day.
Running Around Town
I spent all morning and afternoon running around town, visiting local restaurants and shops to tell managers about the Livestrong program we’re bringing to our gym in October. (I actually met a blog reader at one of my stops! Hi Meredith!) I feel like I’m back in my first job out of college when I worked at the Orlando Museum of Art and would run around town telling local businesses about upcoming exhibitions! Oh, the good ol’ days!
My mission today is to try to find a local restaurant to donate some delicious breakfast items and a healthy lunch for everyone to enjoy on October 2 when my gym launches the cancer survivor program at our gym. It’s proving harder than I anticipated. Many places require you to go through corporate which it totally understandable, but the corporations I’ve called seem to require four weeks notice before an event and we are only two weeks out. Bummer! I’m holding out hope that I’ll find someone to commit before the end of the day!
Time to head out again!
