Pikes Peak was looking especially gorgeous this morning, when I dragged myself out of bed at 6:45 AM to tackle the rugby weights sesh that I skipped out on last night. I was astonished to have the weight room all to myself…until the “student supervisor” walked in while I was finishing up and I found myself face-t0-face with a random hookup from last year. Needless to say, I blushed, hurried through my stretches, and blazed outta there.
I microwaved some dark chocolate instant oatmeal (three sisters brand) that I had brought from home for breakfast, with a sliced banana and a (later) scoop of peanut butter. I can’t remember the last time I made oats in the micro! I’ll have to get better at the morning routine so I can get back to the stovetop method. However, when you’re rushed for time…
I’m so grateful that eating breakfast in a 9 AM class is not looked down upon at this school. Schlupping my bfast into a thermos is addictingly convenient, especially when I can refill it with too-strong coffee made by my professor! I was buzzing all morning.
Came home to get my snacks packed for class at the middle school:
Another great day at school! I’ll fill y’all in on my class soon, I promise.
Had some bread when I got home:
Then went to the gym to hop on the treadmill and get my cardio for the day! I just wanted to walk, so I searched around and found this workout on Tina’s blog. It’s a sweaty one! I powered through it, stopping only to
attack embrace a friend I hadn’t seen in months. Feeling the love was so good, I found some more friends to mull over life with for the next few hours. But eventually,a girl’s gotta eat!
And took a closer look at the huge container of spinach in the fridge…

Question: What do you see in the distance when you step out your front door?
