The Gym Regulars
Morning! This week is absolutely flying by for me. Anyone else? I can’t believe it’s already almost TGIF time
I started out the morning with a guts and glory interval run. I felt glorious after the run was done, but during some of the intervals felt like I could keel over!
A hot breakfast didn’t sound very good, so I made another batch of my cheesecake oats. I don’t think I’ll ever get over this combination.
It’s so good!!
1/3 c. oats
1/4 tsp sea salt
stevia to taste
2 tbsp milk
1/4 c. cottage cheese
1/4 c. Greek yogurt
1.5 tbsp crunchy nut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine the first 3 ingredients, then stir in the rest. Top with fruit!
Since when I stepped outside for my run, the humidity was so thick I could chew on it, I turned around, grabbed my keys, and drove to the gym.
(old pic, but you get the pic..ha!)
I haven’t done an early morning workout at the gym in over a month! It was kind of nice to see my old early morning “regulars”
~There’s the guy who wears a red stocking hat every single time he’s there, walks on the treadmill for a bit, and calls it good. It’s cool though, he’d there on the reg.
~There’s the guy who is too cool for school and starts things off with a run on the treadmill, and then does some crazy different lifting workout involving plyos and barbells.
~There’s the girl who goes supah fast on the elliptical and wears ankle weights.
~The girl who only wears a sports bra who is already running on the treadmill when I get there and is still running when I leave 45 minutes later
~And then there’s the girl who stumbles in wearing mismatched tempo shorts + old ratty t-shirts with her iPhone, Kindle, iPod, and headphones and runs.
Oh wait. That’s me. hehe
We’re all strangers because typically the only words we exchange are hello and goodbyes, but we all have a connection because we’re all crazy enough to wake up at 5 in the morning to start sweating!
Eep! I’m already 10 minutes later than I wanted to leave. Go figure See ya in the afternoon.
What are some “regulars” in your life? It could be the gym, the park, the store – anywhere that there are habitual strangers
Have a great Thursday, loves
