Good Monday morning! I hope that your weekend was fantastic and you are jazzed up and ready to start the week!
This morning, I started my day with the last of my mini baked oatmeal bites. They were delicious and quick, which is just what I needed since I had an early morning meeting and woke up a tad bit later than planned. But all is good, because I like to wake up super duper early anyways, so I wasn’t running late at all.
Yesterday was a blast at the Perfect Wedding Guide Bridal Show that my mom and I went to. I feel like they are a great way to get unique ideas, even if you don’t use one of the vendors there.
On this table setting, instead of using a table runner, they used a sash…that only cost $1!! Using a table runner would cost about $5 per table. That is great money-saving decorating tip. It may or may not be used in my wedding 😉
These were cute little cupcakes all wrapped up to be used as party favors…another brilliant idea. And so simple! I tend to over-complicate everything, so I really appreciate when someone takes a simple idea, executes it well, and makes that idea special in some way. I wish I could be more simply creative on my own.
All in all the event was a great way to spend the afternoon bonding with my mom. I have to admit, I think that my favorite booths were the cake samples 🙂 and the health/nutrition booths to help brides get into shape….seems a bit contradictory…oh well!
After spending the afternoon with Mom, Brian and I headed to his parent’s house for our Sunday night family dinner. As always, his dad made a delicious meal. Last night, it was Mahi Mahi fish, salad, wild rice, and baby broccoli.
My sister also came over for dinner, and to cut Brian’s hair. It was starting to get a little shaggy.
She got mad at him for waiting so long to get it cut…just kidding!
Tonight, I am substitute teaching a pilates class, and the new release of BodyPump comes out right after that so I plan to stick around and make that part of my workout today. I have said this time and time again, but I absolutely love working out in the morning, getting it out of the way, and not having to think about it the rest of the day. Honestly, it helps to wake me up and really jump start my morning too.
I know Monday mornings can be a bit hard to wake up to, and sometimes it is a little bit hard to be motivated to get to the gym…at least I know I have been there. Over the weekend Spark People posted a list of 100 Reasons You Should Workout Today, and I thought that this list was a great motivational tool to look at for those days when the gym just doesn’t seem like an option.
Whenever I am feeling like I would rather be on the computer or relax rather than workout, I always ask myself…”will I regret working out? ” The answer is no….I then weigh the options…”will I regret not working out?” The answer is yes. I know that works for me, but look on the list and find at least 1 out of the 100 reasons to workout that applies to you!
