Did you watch the Golden Globes last night? I did, but after a jam-packed day! I didn’t sleep well and I think it’s because I’m getting into the book Gone Girl and it’s starting to really freak me out! I’ll do a review when I’m finished. (I still owe you one for Wild.)
Anyway, I had another bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. I’ve gotten asked how I make this, and I can’t explain it well because I don’t measure anything! I hold the pot under the faucet to fill it with some water, then I put in a scoop of quick oats, 1 TBSP flax (that I measure) and then when it’s getting thick I add a pour of egg whites. I stir occasionally and it comes out differently each time, but always delicious topped with crunchy almond butter!
It was almost too much to digest before the gym since I had to get there less than an hour later, but lucky I didn’t have a super vigorous workout ahead. I just needed to get in the last strength work out of Best Body Bootcamp week 1. I am behind since I started two days late, and this one was my favorite so far!
I took a quick shower at the gym before heading to my Girls on the Run coach’s training! There were WAY more people than I expected – probably at least 100 and it was only HALF of the NEW coaches. St. Louis has the 3rd largest group in the country!!
Anyway I am SO SO excited for it. We got to go through a few of the lessons and learned all about the season’s events and marketing efforts. Even better? My friend (and reader) Becca is going to be my assistant coach!! It starts in February and I’ll keep you all updated on how it’s going. The more I learn, the more I truly believe in this program.
SO continuing my non-stop day, I immediately grabbed Subway (I’d had some snacks at training but was starving) and took it into the movie theatre where my family was waiting with my ticket. We saw The Hobbit which was good, but LONG! I cannot believe that is only 1/3 of the book – they are making two more! I never read them but know people love them and I can see why. I think I would have appreciated it more if I had read them.
The movie didn’t get out until around 8 so I zoomed home to start watching the Golden Globes on DVR (while eating bunches of tostitos – my fav salty snack). They were great – I thought Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were hilarious but not over the top. And I didn’t pay super close attention to the red carpet, but here are a few dresses that stood out to me:
Leah Michele. Great shape. Sparkly without being crazy. She looks awesome.
Jessica Alba. As usual, right? The color was gorgeous on her and different from the others
Zooey Deschanel. Simple but classic. Love her.
PHEW. That’s plenty of rambling for me. Ok – another week ahead and I have some projects I want to work hard on. Hope you had a great weekend!
- Have you ever been part of Girls on the Run?
- Have you seen The Hobbit?
- What’d you think of the Golden Globes and the dresses?
