To start, I learned some startling news when I walked into Panera this morning… they have pumpkin pie bagels. Noooooo.
I resisted the urge for today, but I'm not sure how much longer I can keep it up for. The large sign hanging up advertising them makes them look flat out amazing.
I learned that it is in fact possible to burn something in a crockpot. Last night I threw the ingredients for Pumpkin Oatmeal following a recipe that I found on Pinterest. This is how it was suppose to turn out:
This is how mine turned out:
Nevertheless, I sucked it up, threw an egg on top of a bowl of it this morning, and called it a win... even if it wasn’t. I’m not too sad, steel cut oats just aren’t my thing, I’m a little bit over them to be honest. I felt like I was eating rice.
I learned that Tall Boy Natty Bohs on a
school work night aren’t
the best idea, and really set me up for failure that next morning...
That same day, I also learned that running on my lunch break can literally turn my day around. Now some may call it gross that I do this but as a pretty minimal sweater, I have no issue pulling my hair back, slapping on some deodorant, and continuing my day in the office. Even the shortest of runs helps to break up sitting on my ass all day and makes me feel like less of a slob.

I learned that Spotify has a pretty awesome workout playlist. If you’re a Spotifier, just type in ‘workout’ in the search box and select the playlist entitled ‘Workout’ by Spotify. Rocket science, I know. It has a good selection of jams and I thoroughly enjoyed it will remixing the below workout at 5:30 this morning….
20 min sweat swesh (derived from a bunch of WODS smooshed together)
100 sit ups
10 mins, AMRAP: 5 burpees, 10 pushups, 15 air squats, 20 skaters
10 mins, AMRAP: 40 mountain climbers, 10 single squats (per leg), 20 (weighted)crunches
100 sit ups
I sweat, it woke me up, did the job.
Lastly, I learned that this girl is awesome, her blog is awesome, and this article is something that everyone should read.

Early bedtime for me tonight, as an early alarm is set to pound out 19 miles before 10 AM tomorrow. Encouragement welcome.
