Morning Smile 

Well we officially had our first snow of the year yesterday!


Ok, so maybe it was only a dusting, but the roads were super slippery!! On the way home from running errands, we saw 4 cars in an accident, and the car behind us came thisclose to rear-ending Shane’s vehicle.

We also never made it to the bowling alley. Instead we Red Boxed it:

The Change Up was actually a pretty funny movie. And I’m a huge Jason Bateman fan, mm hmm.

Breakfast & Workout

This morning after coffee, I headed to the gym to get in a full body lifting workout. Honestly, it was kind of all over the place as far as format goes. Some sets were straight sets some were supersets, and some were circuits, but here’s the exercises I performed:

Dynamic warm up for upper and lower body, then…

  • Overhead squats
  • Leg press
  • Inverted row
  • Bench jumps
  • Pushups
  • Barbell lunges
  • Chin-ups
  • Front squats
  • Deadlifts
  • Planks

After stretching, this workout took almost exactly an hour.

Oh, I also took a couple videos if you’d like to check them out!


Post-workout breakfast was a yogurt bowl:


More paleo cereal – this time it was 1/2 apple, coconut, cinnamon, pecans, and cashews all in flax milk. Mmm mm Smile


Alongside, 2 hard boiled eggs that I definitely overcooked. Oops.


I still managed to eat them.

And now it’s time to head to the office. First time I’ll be at work all year! Winking smile Have a lovely one Smile

Have you had your first snow yet?

Have you ever been in a snow-related accident? I haven’t *knocks on wood* but I’ve come awfully close!!

  1. I’m crossing my fingers that our freak snow storm in October is the only substantial snow we get this year. I know it’s incredibly wishful thinking for NY but a girl can dream 😉
    I had someone rearend me in a snowstorm but I haven’t gotten into an accident myself. *fingers crossed*

    • Oh I won’t even set myself up for that disappointment! But it seems like snow storms in Illinois are always the worst in late January/early Feb.

  2. My car is so terrible in the snow that I’ve come close so many times (rear wheel drive Mustang). We had our first real snow (about 1.5 inches) last night and my lovely husband scraped off my car for me at 6 am even though it’s his day off. :)

  3. We have had snow since November, a few feet of it. But on the plus side, no major snow storms recently and beautiful weather – above 0 degrees Celsius!
    Never been in a accident – knock on wood 😉

  4. love your vids! :) That collage is super cute and I am sure they lurved it!

    We had snow in late november early december, but nothing as of late. supposedly getting a little tonight, but I think it is the dusty stuff, which is fine with me :)

    hopefully it stays clear because I have a few girlfriends coming to visit later this month 😉 eeeee!

  5. I still don’t feel like we have had our first “real” snow! When will it come?!?! Ha ha ha. We have had freezing rain a few times.

    I liked that movie too. Some parts were too gross for me though. Like poop in the mouth? Yuck!

  6. I really loved that movie! It was a nice surprise, because I had low expectations going in…

    I’ve yet to be in a snow-related accident. However, there was one trip back to Missouri that included my roommate and I doing a 360 in the Arby’s parking lot on one of the exits. Terrified would be a good word for it.

  7. snow- ahhh! Its only snowed once since weve lived in SC. Love the videos. Glad you got in a great workout already! The paleo cereal looks very yummy!

  8. we’ve had such lame snow here in Utah this season!! it’s never been this warm – it’s kinda weird.

    i’ve never been in a snow related accident, but my husband just was last night. his truck totally flipped. very scary. thankfully, he was okay with no serious injuries.

  9. I hate driving in the snow because no one can ever do it right. My dad made a point of teaching my brother and I how to properly drive in the snow so Im OK at it. Not excellent, but I like to think Im pretty safe. It’s everyone else that I worry about. Especially now that I live on a hill. Its brutal.

  10. Be careful driving in that snow out there! I’ve lived in Florida since I’ve had a driver’s license, but the one time I had to drive in the snow, I backed our rental car into a snow drift. Whoops.

  11. I’ve only been around snow probably three times in my entire life. We just don’t get any living in the Silicon Valley and I’m not much of a skier/snowboarder. But I think it’s beautiful and it would be nice to enjoy a white Christmas one time in my life.

    And yeah, Jason Bateman. Yummy! I’ve liked him since he was on Hogan’s Family or whatever that show was called. Then on Arrested Development.

  12. No real snow here yet in Boston. Not since the storm in October. I’ve ran into a telephone pole in my car in high school when I hit a batch of ice. No injuries, just a cracked break light. Thankfully, nothing in my recent car. My ’96 Toyota Camry actually handles the snow pretty well. :-)
