Yesterday I received the best afternoon pick-me-up, better than a Starbucks cappuccino or a chunk of dark chocolate…
I am so excited and feel so blessed to have the opportunity to join a group of strong, inspiring, and motivated women! As seen on the Fit Approach website, “Sweat Pink Ambassadors live the Fit Approach mission every day: they sweat hard, play hard, and inspire those around them to achieve their best selves.”
All of my excitement powered me through 1 + 1/2 TNT sessions last night. Ryan was late because he had to get an MRI that took longer than expected, so I happily stayed behind with him to make-up what he had missed. By the time we got home I was ravenous and raided the kitchen, snacking while I threw together the epitome of a kitchen sink salad.

I also had an unpictured bowl of chicken noodle soup and rice cakes topped with cottage cheese [hunger > pictures]. I could not be stopped and finished off the night with a sweet cereal yogurt bowl for dessert.
Surprise, surprise, this morning I served up a stack of cereal pancakes. Today’s cereal of choice: TJ’s Honey Nut O’s!

P.S. While I was busy packing Ryan’s and my lunches for today, Charlie was also busy… He ate the peanut butter filling and left me the pretzel shell, he’s so kind

“It often seems, looking back, that the unexpected comes to define us, the paths we didn’t see coming and may have wandered down by mistake. The older we get the more willing we are to follow those, to surprise ourselves.”
