Labor Day Fun!

It’s been a great day here around the Harkey household! Any day that I get to break away from my normal schedule is all right by me.


This morning I slept in til 6:30 (it could’ve been worse!), and I quickly leashed up a sleepy Mac for a quick run. He was a trooper and the run was just long enough to get me nice and warm before I continued my morning’s workout at Jazzercise. Plus, it was actually cool outside while running this morning. I’ve been waiting for a nice morning, and today was it! I could’ve keep running for miles…at least I felt like I could have in the beautiful morning air. So invigorating!

We arrived home pretty quick though because my tummy was growling, and my coffeepot was a waitin’!Ā  I ate and gave myself enough time to digest before heading to our special team-taught class.

On holidays, we often hold 1 Jazzercise class only and invite our students to bring their friends and family for free. This morning we had an almost-packed house, and I team taught with several of my fellow instructors. We tag team the stage, each teaching a few songs before handing off the mic. So fun! And one of the other instructors was nice enough to snap a few pics of me on stage…

Breakfast today was delicious and quick since I threw some overnight oats together last night before bed.

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 TB chia seeds
  • 1 6 oz. container light yogurt, Pumpkin Pie flavor!
  • 1/2 cup Light vanilla soy milk
  • a couple shakes of pumpkin pie spice

and I let that sit in a covered container in the fridge overnight for the oats to soak up all the milk and yogurty goodness.

It was very pumpkiny and fit the morning with the cooler weather. Yum! I also enjoyed some fresh blueberries on the side and lots of hot coffee. šŸ™‚


The rest of my day was spent grocery shopping and doing several loads of laundry (thrilling, I know). It was nice and relaxing though. So relaxing though that dinner kinda went by the wayside. I had a quick salad to tide me over while I baked a spaghetti squash!

My salad had lots of veggies, including some mushrooms I grabbed today while shopping. I have never been a mushroom lover, but I know they are healthy and great for you. So I thought I’d give them another go.

The spaghetti squash was delicious, and I paired my portion with marinara sauce to eat as my main meal. I had to forgo a photo though as it looked like puke on my plate. Not appetizing at all. But I swear it was good. šŸ™‚
