A Quick Workout for Busy Days

Travel days are always busy- even when the “traveling” is only 2 hours worth from Starkville to Memphis.

Wednesday was a busy day that involved finishing all my classes for the semester (woohooo!), completing a project, babysitting, and driving home!  Knowing all that the day held, I pulled myself out of bed and headed downstairs even though it was the perfect stormy morning for sleeping in!

I planned on having eggs like I have the last couple days (trying to get more protein), but I just wasn’t feeling it. My belly wanted carbs… in the form of cinnamon cereal. So I went with it. Alongside my cereal, my new mug I got for my birthday filled with coffee from the keurig, 2% milk, and stevia. Thanks Mom!

The almonds and strawberries were a pre workout snack

Even in this busy day, I wanted to get a good workout in (without taking too much of the day) and make use of my new running hat 🙂 Thanks M!

I hit the Sanderson Center after class for this:

And let me tell you, my heart was pumping! It felt a lot better to ride in the car knowing I had 3 miles done.

Can you find 40 minutes to get your heart pumping? It’s not so bad if you take the Lifetime app with Army Wives on demand 😉

PS: Have you heard of She Reads Truth?! It is daily devotional for women.. I highly suggest you grab a cup of coffee and head on over there today. A new portion is beginning, with the focus on Hosea. It’s too good to miss. I posted a link on my Facebook this morning- I promise it’s so good.

Highlight of My Day aka True Life: I’m an Addict

You will come to realize I have 3 pretty intense addicitons.

1. purses

2. planners/notebook/agendas/any paper you can write a to do list on

3. CUPS! mugs. glasses. mason jars. 

What does this say about me? Oh goodness, I have not a clue (and I’m not sure I want to know!!)

But today Mitchell and I discovered Starbucks reusable cups! (I’ve had my eye on them for weeks– saw them behind the counter in Starkville– how creepy)

While we waited in line, Mitchell guessed they would be $7.25! And I said $3.95, but would have purchased for anything under $5.00! 

When we asked… the guys says “$1.00!”

SOLD- to the lady with 67 coffee mugs who would like a cinnamon dolce blonde roast, 1 sweetener, and half & half!

An extra plus- you save 25 cents at Starbucks with every use!!!

It’s not hard to find the key to my heart, huh?
