last night, i set my alarm with the underlying thought that i’d be perfectly fine with not actually waking up to work out.
you see, waking up at 4:15 on Tuesday morning felt totally fine, but waking up yesterday at 7 am felt like a ton of bricks on my body.
this morning, i wasn’t sure what would happen; however, i moseyed out of bed, changed into bright purple running capris & a bright blue tee, & made my way to the treadmill.
after speed-walking for five miles, i opted to finish off with a jog.
a total of nine miles later, i was glad my body woke up against my better judgment.
i often get asked how i work out in the mornings, & besides the forty-five minutes that typically follow, i honestly don’t have a solid answer except i’m much more inclined to work out at 5 am than i am to work out at 6 pm after running around the city for work.
plus, morning endorphins are a great thing, & a good hair day after a solid sweat session doesn’t hurt either!
one of my favorite aspects of blogging is the opportunity to meet great bloggers in real life.
last night, Emily & i met up for dinner, & i’ll speak for the both of us when is say, we had a ball.
first of all, the meal was amazing— braised pork belly, smoked salmon crab cakes, smoked corn puree, skuna bay salmon & boar bolognese,
but more than that, our conversation never stopped, never got awkward, never tired of topics.
my day had started super early, but this was the perfect way to end it— a delicious dinner w/ a new [in real life blogger] friend.
thank you, again, Emily!
until next time…
daily outfit: the “#SchoolBreakfast" edition.
at 4:15 this morning, my alarm sounded… or was it the text from my co-worker?… either way, by 4:20 i was up & at ‘em getting ready for our nationally localized #SchoolBreakfast event.
as part of National Breakfast Week, we had the honor of hosting an event in Indianapolis that would potentially highlight the importance of breakfast for kiddos.
only 38% of teenagers consume breakfast on a regular basis, & that is pretty darn crazy.
with the help of the Colts mascot Blue, Colts cheerleaders, Colts alum Gary Brackett, a few radio personalities & the local news, the American Dairy Association Indiana threw one heck of a breakfast celebration.
on the menu? homemade chocolate chip banana muffins, fruit & yogurt parfaits, fresh orange slices, & of course, Milk!
it was an early, early morning, but by 8 am, we were so thrilled with the turn-out, nothing else mattered!
one heck of a way to start the day.
i am fortunate enough to have friends who make precious babies.
and sometimes, those friends need a favor & trust me to watch their kiddos.
on Saturday night, i watched baby Blakely for a solid six hours & there’s no doubt, we bonded hardcore.
between coos & changes & countless cuddles,
i began to understand how baby fever develops…
& that’s all i’m gonna say about that.
daily outfit: the “Robin Hood" edition.
within two minutes of arriving in the office, my lovely co-worker said i was dressed like Robin Hood.
compliments may not be her strong suit, but i appreciate the reference.
happy thursday, i’m off to listen to some Bryan Adam’s “All for Love.”
