Cheers to a short work week, heck ya! I’m sitting here with my fingers crossed just hoping that this week will fly by, because all I want is to spend endless amount of time with my college girlfriends on a beach. With the countdown in full effect, I’m starting to really get prepared for the trip so that I’m not waiting until the night before I leave to get all of my essentials. Any who, here’s a look at my Monday!
After a late Sunday night, all I wanted to do was sleep in on Monday morning, but I still dragged my butt out of bed for an early morning workout. I got to the gym a few minutes after 6, and was extremely happy to see that roughly 6 people were there as well. It’s always the same group too that are there at 6 am on the weekend and on a holiday. One of the employees even made that comment to me last Saturday, that it’s always the same few dedicated people who come early when the rest of the world is sleeping. There’s just something so calming about killing a workout with less of a crowd, but with those that are chasing their goals.
So, my workout was a 20 minute HIIT run, followed by a tough back and bicep workout… with abs done at home!
After my ab workout, I attempted making 2 protein shakes, but they just weren’t good, so I tossed that idea, took a shower and then dug into a bowl of banana oatmeal topped with peanut butter. I ate this while texting Lindsay about our respective Sunday’s.
I spent the next few hours prepping food for the week, while Kip Moore’s Wild Ones cd played in the living room. Obsessed with this cd! It was then on to my parent’s house, where I spent several hours laying on their deck working on my tan and reading. Smiles brought to you by the other Kip.
Around 11:30 I enjoyed a banana with the new Pumpkin Spice peanut butter from Nuts ‘n More. I won this off of a Periscope, so it tastes even better since it was free. 🙂 It is SO good though, and I highly recommend it!
I then headed back to my apartment to drop off my laundry, throw a dress on, and head out for Starbucks & shopping.
