Unfortunately, a pumpkin spice latte wasn’t in the cards this morning. I just didn’t have the time with all the errands that I had to run and then I completely forgot about it! But don’t you worry my lovelies.. one of those babies will definitely be enjoyed in the next few days.
I had a ton of errands to run today to get everything ready for when Hans’ family comes from Sweden to visit us in Charlotte next month. I can’t wait to see them again- especially the new addition to the family that Hans and I haven’t met yet! Anyway, on my way out I bit the bullet and got a gym membership. It’s about a mile from my apartment and they offer a lot of fun group classes like zumba and kickboxing. And it is much much much cheaper than going to the yoga studio so I decided I would try this out for awhile and practice yoga in the comfort of my lovely home to help save my poor wallet. We’ll see how it goes.
Lunch today was a staple in the Haleigh diet. A spinach salad with tomatoes, hummus, and a veggie burger doused in hot sauce. If you put hot sauce on it, I’ll eat it.
I did a short strength routine this afternoon- 50 bicycle crunches, 50 regular crunches and 20 push ups. I am trying to get better at doing push ups. Note that these were girly push ups, haha yep that’s right.. I can do several chaturangas in a matter of 90 minutes but I can only do 20 girl push ups. How is that possible?
Afternoon snack was, get this..Pumpkin-Banana-Oat Bran mini muffins w/Dark Chocolate Chips. I told you I was having a pumpkin kick, and a chocolate kick.. but that’s always in style for me.
Mmm.. those mini muffins are delicious AND healthy- a winning combo. Afternoon snack #2 was a nectarine.
Off for my daily hike!
