    Ahhh you have a stash too! I call mine “The Bad Girl Drawer” but that’s because it has peanut butter cups and oreos inside. I don’t think peanut butter with flaxseeds would make a very good bad girl drawer

    Don’t feel awkward about doing different workouts at the gym. Chances are someone will see you doing it, think it’s cool, and copy your moves.

    I do that all the time. Sometimes I approach people about what they’re doing and ask them questions about it, other times I just stare and make a mental note to try the workout next time.

    I’m trying to motivate myself to go to my college’s gym at the moment. :/ I haaaaate the dreadmill but with temps verging on negative numbers and snow on the ground, it’s the only option I’ve got unfortunately. Yikes!

    I can’t stand the ‘lets pretend’ treadmills either – I always feel like I’m going to go flying off! Looks like you got your morning off to a great start. 🙂

    I’m so impressed that you’re able to motivate yourself to go to the gym in the morning! I usually end up hitting the snooze button until it’s too late. Maybe trying a new workout like the Kettlebell Yoga will motivate me!

    So happy for you getting back to the gym!! Bad treadmills, I know… it makes running so much less fun. xx

    I’m usually the only girl in the weights room, and I’m usually lifting 5 pound weights intead of the heavy stuff the boys are lifting. I always feel like a little bit of a goober…

    I cannot wait to get back into the gym!!!! It’s my place and I miss it with this whole “no workouts allowed” part of my pregnancy.

    I always feel funny when I’ve not been in the gym even for a few days. And never feel weird about doing yoga type stuff. My workouts have plyos & stuff that others would call weird too but it’s good for me!!!

    Happy Hump Day!

    Your breakfast looks yummy! I love having cereal for breakfast.

    I really need to learn how to get better at packing a breakfast–or maybe just get better at keeping food to use in my fridge. Do you have any staples that you must have in your fridge for breakfasts and lunch? You always seem to have such a variety in your meals.

    I have tried Trader Joe’s Almond Butter and another kind of Peanut Butter — but not the Valencia one you have! I’ll have to add that to my list.

    My secret stash drawer includes: (let me look…) A variety of tea bags, some Starbucks VIA and Nescafe instant coffee packets, a couple honey packets for tea, a Larabar, TJ’s Dried Bartlett Pears, TJ’s Nutty American Trek mix, a Kashi Pumpkin Spice Flax bar, and some lime & salt microwave popcorn.

    This reminds me, I just bought more dried Mango from Trader Joe’s last night, but forgot to bring it in today.

    I love the PB from Tj’s but my fave is their sunflower seed butter. Omg that to me is just heaven on a spoon 🙂

    Welcome back to the gym…glad you had a nice session!

    Frozen apples…lol. I sometimes keep my produce drawer too cold an accidentally freeze (and ruin) my produce!

    I always feel a bit stupid in the gym, not really knowing what and how to do it 😀
    But I quickly stop with that and just do my thing

    I am going to be getting back into the gym Thursday. I know what you mean about the apartment workout machines….they always feel like toys that are about to break.

    I have not been to my gym for a while either

    2 reasons

    Its cold as heck out to get up early, start the car, let it defrost!

    and

    I would so love to have a gym buddy!

    I love the jar of PB in your desk drawer. I have a feeling I could never do that though- PB is one of those foods I have ZERO control over!

    I wish I could get up and go to the gym more often in the mornings. It would make me feel better about paying for it…

    Good for you! I feel like its cliche sometimes to get back into a gym routine around this time of year. The gym on campus is always PACKED (even worse after New Year’s)… but I live in New England, so the arctic temperatures might also have something to do with it!

    It’s always nice to return to the gym after a long time. I’m a swimmer and I’m always at a school pool so when I get to go to the gym I’m like WOW! Haha, sorry about your icy apple 😡 I hope it warms up in FL for ya :o)

    I admire you for doing the Kettlebell workout at the gym!

    I, too, have an emergency stash of food in my desk drawer! Way better than running to the vending machine or going without.
