Monday Morning!

Good morning friends!! Hope you are having a good start to your Monday morning!! I had my alarm set for 7 am but wouldn’t you know, Sadie had other plans. She woke me up at 6:30 and by then I was already a little awake so I just went ahead and got up. We went on a walk around the block (about a mile) and then I came home and did 20 minutes of a strength workout. I thought I would share with ya’ll my little workout area in my house.




This is technically supposed to be the dining room but I figured I would never use a formal dining room and turned it into my workout area!! It opens directly into my living room (they are basically like one big room) so my treadmill is directly in view of the TV! This is a MUST for treadmill running!! It also makes it easy to walk and watch my shows I’ve recorded to get in a little more exercise! I bought Al the weight bench for Christmas and we both use it a lot! Good investment! I also have some free weights in the corner that you can’t really see that I use a lot. Just wanted to show ya’ll my “little gym”!



So this morning I was in a cereal mood so I had:



1 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch (Honey Flax flavor), 1/2 cup skim milk, and a small banana. I also had a cup of Almond Amaretto coffee! It was good but lately I have just been more fond of tea! Probably would have liked that better this morning than coffee!!



I am about to head off to my study group before my “BIG TEST” and then I have lab this afternoon! I got my Pot Roast going in the slow cooker already and I am so looking forward to having dinner ready when I get home tonight! I will share my Pot Roast recipe later!



I hope ya’ll have a good start to the week and I am going to leave you with the cutest pup in the world:



Sadie being her lazy self!! Isn’t she precious??


  1. I'm jealous of your home gym! How convenient! Good luck on the test!

  2. My gym stuff is in the basement, but I like the dining room idea MUCH better.

  3. Hope you have a good monday morning! It's so cool you have your own little gym :) I'm a tad bit jealous, haha

  4. Your gym area is fantastic! I have temporarily set up my treadmill in the dining room (beside the table) and there is no TV. It gets sooo boring! I'm really going to have to get a TV in there or relocate it...
