I got up at 5AM to get ready for the gym and take my pre work out. For the last few weeks, I haven’t been getting up for my morning work out on days that I work from home. I got back into my routine today, and it felt so good. I always feel so accomplished and like I can really tackle the day if I get a work out in early.
Something I am thankful for is having a Planet Fitness within 5 minutes from our home. That is so convenient! Kyle and I are working towards having a little at home gym in our garage, but until then, I’m happy here! I walked for 30 minutes at a 12 incline and 3 speed. Walking at an incline is my favorite form of cardio right now. Also, I am obsessed with these headphones that my brother in law and his fiancé got me for Christmas. They’re perfect for the gym!
After I walked, I did a few ab exercises and stretched for a while. I am seriously going to do better at stretching this year. I really have been slacking at it, and my body feels so much better when I take the time to do it.
Once I got home, I drank my greens, added a scoop of collagen to my water glass, and took my vitamins. I used to mix my greens and collagen, but the consistency becomes a little too thick for my liking. It’s tasteless so putting it in my morning water is super easy!
Make your bed every morning. Seriously, do it! I have so many ideas for decorating our bedroom and looking at these photos make me so excited to get started.
This granola is DELICIOUS! I had some of it along with some berries for breakfast. I added a tiny bit of monkfruit sweetener because they were super sour today.
Around 11AM, Chance and I went for a mile walk. I am going to do better about getting in more movement when I work from home. I know I’ve said that a million times, but I have written in my planner to do one walk around 11AM and 2PM. I think that’ll help me stay accountable, and Chance will be happy too! I also feel like I concentrate so much better when I take walk breaks throught the day.
I had a beef stick, pita chips and hummus for a late morning snack. These pita chips are incredible, and I forgot how much I love hummus.
We had a meeting after lunch so I made a cappuccino with our Nespresso machine and turned on my heated blanket. Kyle’s mom bought him this Nespresso machine for his birthday last year, and it is the BEST!
Chance and I walked another mile after my meeting, and then it was time for his nap. This chaise is right next to my desk so he lays there like 99% of the time I’m working. It’s the best!
I listened to the new Happy Hour podcast episode during our walks today, and it was so good! Gretchen was talking right to my soul about anxiety and comparison. I highly recommend taking a listen!
We made steak, potatoes, and green beans for dinner! I forgot to take a picture D:
After dinner, Kyle went back to studying while I got ready for bed. After I washed my face, I used this exfoliator. My skin has been doing SO MUCH BETTER lately, and that makes me so happy. I’ve been trying a lot of new products lately, and this one is a favorite right now. My main problem is the pores on my nose, and I am excited to see if this keeps helping.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful January so far!
