It’s a pretty special guy’s birthday today….

Brian coffee

Happy birthday, Brian!

This is our last round of birthdays as an unmarried couple.  I feel so lucky to get to spend the rest of my life with such an amazing guy. Just a short 2 months to go and we will be hooked for life…as if we aren’t already! Bring on the birthdays 🙂  I can’t wait to see where our future takes us!

This morning started bright and early by teaching a Bodypump class.

photo (19)I was planning on attending class this morning, but at the last minute I ended up being the one teaching it!  I had to switch my mindset pretty quickly, but it was no biggie at all!! It’s never a problem when I need to help a fellow instructor our, because we ALL need the help at some point.

It was a great switch up to my morning routine…teaching the class rather than taking the class.  I was just thankful that I at least dressed half way decent and brought my iPod.  😉

Typically, when I teach I try to look “nice” (or as nice as I can for working out), but when I workout on my own I just roll out of bed…today I was somewhere in between.  I think everyone got a great workout in regardless of how I looked…


Breakfast was also a delicious switch up to the old routine.

Question of the Morning:

  • What is something that you have switched up in your routine recently?
  • Was it an expected or unexpected switch up?
