Gooood Morning . Well, I did get all my reading done last night with the help of a little too much coffee. Yeah, once I was done and ready for bed, I could not fall asleep. I was up until 1am, then woke up at 3:45 for about 30 minutes, then got up at 5am to head to the gym. I am interested to see how I will feel come noon time…ugh! Before walking out the door, I had half of a clif bar.
When I work out in the mornings, I actually have to take the T to the gym so I need to get out of bed about 45 minutes before I actually want to be at the gym. Some things in life take commitment! 6am Body is great when you have an energetic instructor, Sara is really energetic and funny too, it helps get you through a early morning workout for sure! I was excited when I walked into the class and started setting up and realized Melissa was right next to me YAY! Sara did a mix of Body Pump 67 and Body Pump 72. I never did the 67 tracks, and was nervous about it. With Body Pump, it is always good to know what is coming. I actually loved the 67 tracks and the music was fantastic. I guess I stand corrected, sometimes it is really fun to mix it up. After class, I showered and got ready for work at the gym and hopped on the train. I was actually the first one in the office this morning and got quiet a few little things done Love that!
Breakfast was eaten at work. I brought oatmeal. Oatmeal is a super portable breakfast. Last night I packed up the oats, 1/2 of a banana and the toppings in ziploc bags (separately) and I was all set. I keep almond butter in the fridge at work and obviously a mini measuring cup and cinnamon are staples in any foodie’s desk draw
- 1/2 a cup of oats
- 1 cup of water
- 1/2 of a small banana
- Dark chocolate chips
- Organic unsweetened coconut that I forgot I had but found last night while rummaging through the cabinets trying to get creative.
- Spoonful of Almond Butter
I ate my oatmeal while working and chatting wedding stuff with my co-worker Caitlin, she is getting married less than a month before me. I also had a medium french vanilla coffee with half and half that I picked up at DD’s in the train station.

1. Self Love Tip of the Day: Forgive Yourself: This is something I have worked REALLY hard to become good at. I used to be super forgiving of others, yet I would beat myself up over every little thing. All of us make mistakes; so there is really no need to beat yourself up over them. If you have made a mistake in the past that has caused you to feel less worthy, work on forgiving yourself.
Challenge: Today, think of one thing you have beat yourself up over recently and let it go and forgive yourself. Right now…go ahead…do it!
“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that prisoner was you.” -Lewis B. Smedes
