The Return of Jai Ho and Uncle Sam Cereal Review

Lauren and I were way too excited when we got to spin class last night to see that Jai Ho was going to be our instructor, once again. We both totally have a non-romantic crush on him that basically just consists of us feeling like we want to be best friends with him 100% of the time.

We just want to be up there, dancing on our spin bikes to his super fab playlist every day of the week.

We specifically refer to him as Jai Ho now, partly because he continues to play that song during every class and partly because he hasn’t told us his real name yet.

Quirky Dogs and Passive Aggressive Notes

Well, I’m officially a grandma.

I ordered an extra special version of the good old Cream of Wheat on Amazon a little while ago (embarrassing to admit) but it looked delicious and I just had to try it.

I added a little Love Grown Oats Sweet Cranberry Pecan granola…

Eggos and Ambition

I started off this lovely Monday with a big breakfast of fuel:

Image

2 multigrain Eggos and a sliced up granny smith apple.. YUM.

I needed a good amount of fuel before heading to class because I am feeling ambitious today. I never got around to completing my long run, after a busy busy weekend, so todays the day, and then some.

I’m planning on cranking out 10 treadmill miles after class this morning, which is something  haven’t done in a while. I always seem to get really bored after running anything over 5 miles on a treadmill…

..so this should be a challenge.

Off to class… wish me luck!

Tell Me: What are your tips/tricks for getting through a long treadmill run?

Waffles For Breakfast and Fridays Circuit Workout

Guess what I got for Valentines Day? Besides a ton of candy that I gladly accepted..

A WAFFLE MAKER.

I know it’s not a traditional gift, but I loved it. It has actually been a white elephant gift that Andy’s family has been pawning off on other family members for years, and everyone just keeps giving it away. Andy’s brother Ryan got it this Christmas, and he was less than enthused.

But I LOVE waffles. So I gladly accepted Andy’s gag gift that he literally filmed me opening as a joke. But I’m not giving it up.

Gym Etiquette and a Cycling Class

I went to the gym this morning to crank out my 3-mile run and saw something that I have honestly never seen before at the gym that disgusted me.

Not that I am some gym etiquette nazi or anything, but there are a few things that I absolutely can not stand at the gym, and this one made the list.

When I looked over at this lady today, I was like:

The lady on the bike in front of me was riding the bike, without shoes.
