I started out having a hard time getting going this morning. We were up late last night watching the election and then talking. After that I stayed up even longer reading, and I have a good excuse for it. Right now I’m rereading Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum. I absolutely loved this novel the first time I read it a few years ago, and I’m loving it all over again while currently rereading it. If you have not read this moving story, please pick it up to read today!
I’m rereading this wonderful novel, because I’m going to be Skyping with the author, New York Times Best Seller Jenna Blum on Monday!!!! I’ve been beyond excited about this since I set it up with Blum a few months back. I’m not someone who really cares about celebrities you see on television and in the movies; however, authors are a whole different story. Every time I received a reply email from the wonderful Ms. Blum I did a little happy dance (Did I mention that she is the sweetest person too?). Basically, I turn into one of those star struck individuals who jump up and down and start clapping. I swear I could talk to any author for hours. How they come up with their stories just amazes me.
If you have read this story let me know if you have any good questions for Ms. Blum, and I’ll ask her for ya!
On to my morning…
Here is what I had for breakfast. My hubby made us scrambled eggs and pancakes. I let my son and husband eat the pancakes while I opted for healthier left over maple steel cut oats (I added a scoop of protein powder to the oats this morning to get even more protein in my breakfast). It all tasted so good and gave me a ton of energy for my Best Body Bootcamp workout!
I have been loving Tina’s workouts she has created for us this week, and today’s was awesome!!! It really kicked my butt! After Tina’s workout, I hoped on a treadmill and did the interval you see below. This interval is more of a speed interval that has one small hill in it. Hope y’all have a great workout today!
