Hot Mess Friday!

Happy Friday!!!

I’m beyond excited to start this fun-filled Labor Day weekend. I made it to work on time to find a rather empty parking lot. Everyone is on an extra-extended weekend I guess! Oh well, it’ll make for a nice, quiet day for me 🙂


I woke up at 5 AM this morning and headed to the gym to attempt to get in a good work out before my workday. I hopped on the treadmill with no goals in mind as far as distance. Yes, I’m training for a 5K that’s happening in a few weeks, but I had a double workout yesterday and my legs were shot! I completed the intervals that I did yesterday morning til around the 1.6 mile mark. I was getting really bored and really fatigued. This is when the Hot Mess workout began!

Hot Mess Workout!

  • ~15 minutes on the treadmill doing intervals!
  • 5 minutes of rowing vigorously
  • 2 minutes of spinning (1 min. standing/1 min. sitting)
  • 1 mile on the Elliptical
  • Arm Circuit with 3 sets of 10 reps each, including a chest press, shoulder press, & bicep curls
  • Glute Extensions until you die (or around 50 on each leg at 65 lbs.)
  • Back to the treadmill for .5 miles, speed at 7
  • Finish up on the Elliptical because you have time to spare! (I got in 10 min.)

Yup, this was me this morning. I was sweatin’ like a fool. I had my hair piled on top of my head (it was my best creation at 5 AM). And I can guarantee everyone else in there probably thought I was on crack the way I was running all over the place. I obviously could not make up my mind about what to do.


Another rushed breakfast this morning, but it was surprisingly delicious and satisfying!

Oatmeal & Raspberries!
Oatmeal & Raspberries!

I whipped up some oats in the breakroom at work as soon as I arrived. It was classy since I prepared them in a styrofoam cup! I then tossed in some fresh raspberries, added a splash more of soymilk, and stirred it all up. The super hot oats warmed the berries through and it was the perfect consistency. I was very pleased with my breakroom breakfast!

IMG_5311I had the remainder of the raspberries and a cup of Greek yogurt on the side. Btw, if you are a Greek yogurt fan, this flavor from Kroger was amazing! Plus, I’m pretty much obsessed with the Kroger Greek Lite yogurt because it’s only 90 calories, 0 g fat, and 16 g of protein! It’s some powerful stuff and holds over my hungry tummy on most days.

I hope your Friday is off to a good start! If you’re one of those lucky people who took an extra day off and are reading this from the comfort of your couch, I hate you! Ok, not really. I wish I were right there with ya though.

See you after lunch!
