After working straight through my lunch yesterday trying to crank out a proposal at work, I was more than ready to destress at the gym.
That is the face of an angel. I looked like death after Body Pump because it kicked my ass. In a real bad way. No matter how many times I lift, I swear my biceps are still so shrimpy and weak!
After the class, I ran into my cousin for 3.4 seconds and did an air hug, before she went in to take the kickboxing class and I ventured to my parents to babysit animals. Andddd my life is so exciting!
Both of my parents were out-of-town last night, so I headed over to hang out with the boys for a little bit. Kipper and I played ball and frisbee outside, while Jake observed from the porch.
If you want to know what a dog’s face looks like when he turns sour, here you go:
This boy is such a ham! After playing around, I rounded up the troops to snuggle on the couch to watch Bethenny Frankel on Ellen. Bethenny + Ellen = perfection. Jake stared me down for a solid 10 minutes before finally joining me.
Shortly after, the boys crashed hard, and I figured I could sneak out then, but of course Jake used my hand as a pillow and I couldn’t find it in me to wake him up.
I’m getting better with my snoozing. This morning I only snooze 1 1/2 times. Well, ok, 2 times, but I only slept through half of the 2nd snooze. Also, there’s absolutely no way to change the snooze time on your phone. Something to do with how phones are built and not being able to set it to 5 or 10 on the iPhone. Or I could be making this up, but I will believe 100% of the words I read on online forums.
After the snooze charade, I hit the gym for a struggle of a 4 mile run and 1 mile walk. I really wasn’t feeling the run this morning, but who eve does at 5:50 am?
After the run, I attempted to microwave egg whites since I was low on time. They exploded in the microwave. Is there something about yokeless eggs that cause an explosion, because I’ve ever had explosive microwaved eggs before.
Here’s another picture of my melted pb oatmeal (with an unexploded egg white mixed in).
The trick with this meal is to let the pb mountain melt into a pb pool. Then, you scrape the sides to get a spoonful of oatmeal, and then lightly dip the spoon of oats into the pool.
Just the tiniest coating gives you enough pb in that bite. You then work away at the sides and beneath the pb pool until your last bite is basically all peanut butter. best.breakfast.ever.ever.ever.ever.
Lindsay emailed me this morning and told me that she drove by the scene of our girl’s date night this am, you know, the place with the famous strawberry soft-serve ice cream, and there is no strawberry soft-serve on the menu today!
There is apparently blueberry and banana, along with vanilla and chocolate. Blueb sounds pretty intriguing! I hope they give free samples before I commit.
Cannot wait, cannot wait! Also on the agenda is girl talk, cat cuddles, and getting my cards read (yes we are gypsies).
