So you liked the baked goods, huh? Yeah- me too. And before I forget, the recipe said it would make approximately 24 if you fill the cupcake liners 2/3 of the way. I filled them much more than that and still ended up with 30. So clearly there is no reason why you shouldn’t make these. Unless, of course, you’re allergic to pumpkin, chocolate, or wheat. If that’s the case, please don’t.
I’m covering my bases with that one.
Since we’re back into the swing of the work week where I’m the later shift, I did my standard get up early to workout thing. After getting 9-10 hours of sleep each night over this weekend, it was pretty much non-negotiable.
I did The Shred with Jillian and resistance bands. Within the last month, I’ve acquired neighbors who live beneath me. For the longest time, the apartment below me was empty, so I stomped and jumped as much as I wanted. Now there’s someone there. I still did it, but in spots where it’s not quite as loud (I assume there are beams there?). This girl’s gotta get her sweat on. So I did so as politely as possible.
That took care of my strength training. I also needed to get in cardio, which I did after work. I stuck to the elliptical. I know this isn’t part of the training plan and I’m straying from it, but for now that works for me. If I don’t feel like running, it’s ok- I can just improvise with the elliptical. Weee…. living on the edge….
As excited as I got for the stops at Subway and Panera during my roadtrip to Mid-Missouri last weekend, I decided to just go ahead and buy my own deli at the grocery store.
And it was on sale. So yeah…
I don’t have bacon, but came as close to my favorite sandwich at Panera as I could get by improvising with the basics I had. Turkey, spinach, cheddar, avocado and a little ranch in a spinach tortilla. I didn’t really miss the bacon anyways.
I don’t know about where you live, but today we’re supposed to be receiving a mini heat wave at hit 90 degrees again today. Which is hilarious because I just talked about how I finally accepted all things Fall being a part of my life. Originally, I was upset. Because summer seemed to have left without saying goodbye. I guess it wanted to come back to give me a hug before going away for the rest of the year. Goodbyes are never easy.
And because it’s Tuesday (clearly a downer in my book), here’s a fun little video for you that, if anything, is a good indicator of my sense of humor.
I absolutely love that people do this- it makes me smile… It was put on by this group called Improv Everywhere and they do random “pranks” like the black tie beach day in New York. Has anyone ever heard of them?
Ok kids, here’s hoping Tuesday doesn’t suck!
