Well this morning started on a fantastic note…
Let the over-usage of pumpkin in my meals officially commence!
With it being October and all, I am feeling extra love for Fall and decided to break out the pumpkin already.
This is my absolute favorite version of a protein pancake (so far), and if you are one who enjoys #allthepumpkinthings, then, well… my work here is done. Do yourself a favor and make one.
Also rocking my world right now is a new 80’s playlist I’m currently putting together on Spotify. Okay, fine. For those of you who are persistent on resisting the Spotify train (stop), here you go…
There will always be a special place reserved in my heart just for 80’s music. Without fail, even one great throwback will always put me in the best mood. And word to the wise… I don’t go out very often these days, but if you mention a casual pub of the sorts known to play music of this genre, I will be there with my neon scrunched bells on. No doubt.
Since I am far from wanting to get to my training run today, I thought it would be fun to help start all of our days on a lighter note with a collection of humorous someecards all healthy living enthusiasts will understand.
20 Hilarious Healthy Living Someecards
And, please tell me I am not alone in laughing out loud to most of them.
Because this happens on a daily basis…
Story of my life.
If so, I would weigh a scary 80 pounds… or something.
Last weekend? And the one before too? Yikes.
You can also add “outside at-home” to this one.
I actually like cardio, but know a lot of you would appreciate this.
There’s never anything good in there.
I’m really good at recovering from this. “You killed it!!”
I’ve always been a party girl at heart.
Stop trying to win, it’s not going to happen.
(Unless you’re a guy. Then you usually do. Sigh.)
Now you know why we have have two sets…
Except I’ll go with “8 Mile”, just to freak people out…
(Detroit reference, anyone?)
We’ve all thought this.
Don’t act like you’ve never done this.
Me every day after a workout at a “real gym”.
Good luck with that, bro.
Too much fiber (or pizza), perhaps?
Sorry, I really felt a need to share all of these with you, and hope your day got a little brighter because of it.
It’s time for me to actually be productive now. See you all later this afternoon with a workout playlist that isn’t 80s!
Questions of the Morning
• What is your favorite music decade?
• I’m still working on it, but any vital 80’s hits I’m forgetting?
September 16, 2014
Good afternoon! The weather in our area today is perfect. Chilly in the mid-60s and sunny, just how I like it.
I know that won’t last forever, so I have been studying in a sweatshirt by a cracked window for the past couple of hours and wanted to share something I didn’t have to use my brain much for on my break.
During this week’s Edge (youth) small group sessions, we asked our high school students a series of forty questions to get to know each other a little better. I loved hearing the answers from my group of girls and thought it would be fun to take ten of my favorites and answer them here.
If I didn’t and kept powering through chapters, the rest of my study time would be spent reorganizing my notecards for no reason at all. That someecard is totally me.
I hope you like these Glamour Randoms every once in a while. Feel free to play along and answer one or all of them in the comments section!
Study Break Survey
Because sometimes you just need a few minutes to do something else…
• If you could live in any book which one would it be?
I always thought it would be cool to live in a fantasy land, only if it’s temporary, of course. Wouldn’t it be great to wander around in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland?
• What is the food you dream of when you think of Thanksgiving?
Pumpkin pie, obviously. And creamed corn. Nana always made the BEST. <3
• What’s the last movie you saw in theaters?
If I Stay. Loved it! If you see it make sure to bring a box of tissues…
• Who do you admire most in the world?
People who live without fear, regret, and like every day might be their last.
• What was your favorite game to play as a child?
• If your life was a song, what would the title be?
Is it too soon to say “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift? Because she clearly wrote it about my life… (minus the part about the dating.)
• What is your biggest fear?
Losing someone extremely close to me unexpectedly.
• Have you been told you look like a celebrity? Who?
When my hair was bleached blonde and I had bangs everyone called me Heather Locklear.
People (still to this day) occasionally say I resemble Melissa Joan Hart. I’m not one hundred percent sure about that one.
• If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Umm everywhere. I’ve been to Asia, Europe, and South America. I would love to visit Australia and Africa! #bucketlist
• What’s the most meaningful gift you have ever received?
My engagement ring.
Scott actually proposed with his mother’s old engagement ring and took me through a loop of stories and excuses as to where mine was for months. He surprised me with it at our engagement party and I had no idea what it looked like.

The bottom of it has two sapphires next to each other, symbolizing us coming together and meeting through our jobs with the Orlando Magic! I thought is was very sweet of him to add the unique detail and it will always mean a lot to me.
All right. It’s time for me to get back to work. I hope this post entertained you on this somewhat slow-moving weekday. Have a great rest of your Tuesday!
