A pretty cool thing to do.

I had big plans to get up super early yesterday morning and head to the gym. Annabelle decided to party from 2 – 3:30 am, so I slept through my gym alarm clock and still felt pretty lousy when my work alarm clock went off. Some days, sleep wins.

Once I got to work, I ate my overnight oatmeal. I am hooked on this breakfast and have eaten it every work day for at least 2 weeks.


During lunch, I went to a farewell gathering for a friend who is moving cross country. He and his wife decided that they wanted a change and they are taking 2 weeks to drive across the country and start a new life near Seattle. How cool is that?

Sandwiches and fruit…


Followed by cookies and a cupcake (cupcake not pictured)

The rest of the afternoon was spent working with my headphones in. Sometimes you just need to tune the office out. I love the Pandora pitch perfect station.

At the last minute, I decided to join my friend Gina for a kettle bell circuit class at our work gym. It was a fun class and we did a bunch of different exercises (squats, swings, curls, overhead presses, more squats, tricep dips) using the kettle bells. I worked up a good sweat and I ended my workout with 15 minutes on the stationary bike.

I made another quick and healthy dinner tonight and I was really looking forward to it because I LOVE sweet potato tots. I sautéed red onions and spinach and added Nature’s Promise Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Meatballs. Served with sweet potato tots on the side, it was the perfect meal.

The night ended with Honey Boo Boo and…ice cream. I think I need an intervention. 🙂

What is the last group exercise class you took?

Have you ever used kettle bells?


  1. The last “organized” group exercise class I’ve taken was probably the yoga session at RW in October. Sad I know! Have a great weekend!

  2. I took that 30 minute core class on Thursday and it was pretty tough! I followed it with 4 miles on the treadmill. My tummy is a bit sore today. I ran 7.5 and did 1 hour of yoga and I really felt the soreness in my core…it’s all good! Yes, I have done the kettlebells…very interesting workout! I have been enjoying my cross training! I really think it’s making a difference! Enjoy the weekend!!😃
