All my life I’ve loved reading and writing. My interest in words and their ability to capture emotion, change feeling and inspire imagination prompted me to hide underneath my comforter with a flashlight after bedtime in elementary school, reading away even though I knew I was supposed to be sleeping.
It also sparked an interest in a variety of career paths, some more unusual than others.
I want to write greeting cards. I want to write the limericks at the end NPR’s Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me podcast. I want to write product descriptions on boxes of food. I want to write the informational plaques that appear in front of displays at museums or along hiking trails.
This morning a new writing-related job intrigued me as I made breakfast.
I want to be the person who comes up with the catchy phrases that may be found on the Chiquita banana stickers.
How does one get a job like that?
I sliced the creative little banana on top of a batch of overnight oats that I prepped yesterday after dinner.
I’m not sure what I did differently, but this batch tasted doughier than normal. I was quite a fan!
Today’s workout began with 20 minutes on the elliptical before I assembled free weights and a mat on the open floor of the gym to knock out a circuit workout designed by Tina through the Best Body Boot Camp program.
I’m on the final two weeks of the boot camp and if the workouts planned for the next two weeks are anything like today’s, I’m in for a treat. I loved the fast-paced tempo of the workout. The circuit made the time pass so quickly and before I knew it, my workout was complete.
My favorite exercise in the circuit was the 180-degree squat jump.
Turning my body around added a whole new challenge to the jumps. These will definitely be popping up in my workouts in the future.
I love discovering new-to-me exercises the kick my booty!
