Someone hasn’t been able to start her day.
She’s laying on the couch until she feels like fully waking up 😉
The Pilot and I slept in a little –he flew late again last night so I’ll stay up until he’s on the ground safe, and then hang out when he gets home- and then hit the gym this morning.
It was legs day <— a day I always kind of dread, but feel soooooo good when it’s over!

I’m saving cardio for later today- I tend to get a better workout when I split up weights and cardio, especially when the weather is nice and I can go outside, or take a class at work.
When I got home, I settled down with a cup of minty hot chocolate
and started to plan out the day.
We have a lot of fun stuff going on this weekend (squadron party, fall festival, making another baby meal, birthday BBQ for that one guy I’m in love with), so I just have to run some errands and get things ready. Hoping I can sneak in an acupuncture appointment in there, too 🙂
A 2 egg-rito with a little butter melted into the tortilla + salad. It makes me think of my childhood- madre would hand me an egg-rito to eat on the way to school. Good stuff.
See ya laterrrrr <3
Something to talk about: How are your October goals going? We still have a little over a week to crank them out! I still need to plan a picnic and do a 5k- the rest are in the works 🙂
Also, can anyone recommend an iron supplement that isn’t too horrible? I just got my blood test results from last week, and normal iron levels are 11.5-16.0, and I’m at 11.2 :/ Looks like it’s supplement time over here.
