I’m in a bumbling good mood this AM – I’m sure you can understand why
We set the alarm for 6:26 but ended up snoozing a little longer. I think we both needed a little more sleep! I didn’t really go back to sleep – just laid there for a while.
Then I got up and headed down the hall to the gym!
I have always wondered if having an elliptical at home would be worth the investment for me. I would never buy a treadmill because I can always run outside, but when I need some equipment for cross training, a home elliptical would be perfect. So living at Karen’s with the gym down the hall is kind of a test to see how much of an impact it would make.
And I can tell you – I would have NEVER gone to the real gym this morning (or anywhere that I would have left the house) because I would have needed a whole hour for travel and wouldn’t have been in the mood for the intensity of the gym but I got in a nice 30 minute elliptical session today and it was all because the machine was nearby.
But I will say a CON is that my workouts at home/hotel gyms are always less intense. I’d have to find a way to balance that somehow. I think when I have kids I will definitely invest in an elliptical at home!
Came back and whipped up some breakfast before we hit the road –
- Oikos plain (~1 cup)
- Quaker Oatmeal Squares (~1/2 cup)
- 2/3 of a big banana
- 1 tbsp trail mix
- 1 sprinkle flax
- 1 tbsp TJ’s Sunflower Butter
Soooo I picked up a few bowls at Target yesterday for $1-2. I needed more variety here than the white mugs!! I’ll donate these guys to Goodwill when we move – or keep them for future kids/pets!
Sweet nectar –
See you from the Shore!!
