Today started off pretty meh. I know we all have those days.
After taking a look at our summer plans last night, it seems like we have a busy one ahead of us, and to be honest, it got me a tad overwhelmed!
At the moment, we are planning two trips back to Florida, a trip back to Arkansas/Missouri to see Scott’s family (hopefully!), weekends in Columbus, Toronto, and Chicago (?) and a couple overseas work trips for Scott. (Lucky duck!) It’s madness, I tell you.
I’m not complaining though… I love being anywhere and everywhere and would travel several times a month if I could!
One thing that got me smiling today was the sunshine sneaking through our windows.
Please, please, please don’t go anywhere sunshine and warm temperatures! I’ll pay you.
After waking up with a headache and an extremely sore body, I felt less than motivated to get moving this morning. I can’t tell if I am coming down with something, or if I am just extremely tired, but I need to go ahead and get over it either way.
I don’t have a What I Ate Wednesday post for you today, but I will share a couple of my meals as the day goes on instead. Deal?
Breakfast was a yummy and predictable one with a cup of Dunkin’ coffee and a batch of strawberry overnight oats I prepared last night.
Strawberry Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup super oats, unsweetened almond milk, frozen raspberries.
I really need to get on that post about overnight oats, huh? Note taken.
I have a feeling that a lot of my stiffness in the morning directly correlates to our mattress. Right before I met Scott, he invested in a quality memory foam mattress so I figured we would be set in that department for quite some time. Welp, seven years later, we notice ourselves concaving towards the center and waking up with stiff necks and backs.
Either we are getting older, or our beloved mattress needs to be replaced. Maybe both?
(Please ignore the old discolored socks and baggy sweats I’m sporting.)
I have plans on completing an at-home yoga workout after lunch in hopes of feeling even better and stretched out before practice tonight. I am also working on uploading and editing photos from the wedding over the weekend and will be back later this afternoon to chat some more.
I guess that’s it for now. Hope you all have a great start to the day!
Questions of the Day
• Do you prefer to sleep on a soft or hard mattress?
• Are there any exercises you do in the mornings to get your day started?
I think it’s time for me to get back into the habit of working out in the mornings. When I am consistently doing so, I actually look forward to breaking a sweat to start off the day and always have productive ones as a result. Hopefully, the close of the season will kick start this routine back into my life!
