Even though temperatures are supposed to surpass 90 degrees in Ocala today, I am riding the October high and reminding myself that Halloween and Thanksgiving are right around the corner so I don’t feel too weird breaking out the fall décor when it feels like summer outside.
(I spy our Turkey Trot hats!)
Ryan and I have plans to decorate the house with all of our autumn flare this evening. The grass and leaves are bright green outside, but the inside of our house will look festively fall with oranges, yellows and reds.
I think it’s safe to say that fall is my favorite season. When I think of the fall, I think of carving pumpkins, corn mazes, Ryan’s birthday, two-ingredient pumpkin spice cookies, adorable trick-or-treaters, my mom’s homemade stuffing, boots, scarves and all things cozy! Can you tell I’m ready for cooler weather?
Workout + Breakfast
Today started out with an early morning workout like most Mondays seem to around here.
Ryan and I drove to the gym where I spent 20 minutes on the elliptical before completing a lower body workout. I have a feeling my hamstrings are going to be quite sore!
Once we arrived back at home, I fixed myself a super-fast breakfast thanks to leftovers from Sunday’s birthday brunch.
My mother-in-law sent us back to Ocala with lots of food, including breakfast sausage and scrambled eggs.
I wasn’t sure how scrambled eggs would taste reheated, but they were totally fine and the texture wasn’t weird at all. My mother-in-law also made the scrambled eggs with half and half, bacon and cheese so perhaps that’s why they were so good? Extra rich!
I’m planning to spend the rest of the day studying for my personal training certification. I was previously locked out of NASM’s eLearning center, so they reset my test date when I informed them of the issue and now I don’t need to take the test until February. Considering I was away from home a lot in September and my studying was rather sporadic, I am grateful for the extended deadline, but still hope to take the test as soon as I can once I feel comfortable with the information.
Time to study!
