You know you’re in Texas when…
I can’t say I’ve ever seen a Texas shaped waffle iron before, but I suddenly feel the need to own one. Waffles in fun shapes? Yes, please! 😉
I wonder if that have a Florida one too? 😉
We stayed at a Fairfield Inn last night (we stayed at one in Tallahassee the night before too). The decent rates, free WiFi, free breakfast, and easy access right off the interstate make them the perfect road trip hotel. Chevy is covering our costs on our drive to Austin, but we’re in charge of budgeting ourselves with the funds they gave us. Fairfield Inn = budget friendly.
Unlike our first stop in Tallahassee (where I was familiar with the area and knew where I could get a run in), I had no idea where to run in Beaumont. Rather than take a risk in an area I was unfamiliar with, I decided to play it safe and took advantage of the lone treadmill in the Fairfield’s make shift gym instead.
I was actually hoping to get a NROLFW workout in, but no such luck. Locating a set of free weights on the road hasn’t been as easy as I thought it would be. The gym this morning had a treadmill, an elliptical, and a recumbent bike machine – that’s it. Still better than nothing. 🙂
I hopped on the treadmill for an entire episode of Say Yes to the Dress (love the mobile Netflix app!), then did a short circuit workout using my body weight.
- 30 Jumping Jacks
- 30 High Knees
- 30 Butt Kicks
- 30 Jump Rope
- 15 Jumping Squats
- 20 Standing Lunges (on each leg)
- 10 Push-ups
- Repeat x 4
After my workout and a quick shower, I hit the free breakfast bar for some food.
I was instantly drawn to this.
I made the oatmeal using two packets of the original instant oatmeal and topped it with a thing of peanut butter, brown sugar, walnuts, and raisins.
On the side I had a peach from a fruit stash I brought from Florida.
A perfect on-the-road breakfast!
We’re getting close!
Only one more school and a few hundred miles to go!
My teammate, Nick, has been posting some AWESOME videos from our trip that I had to share.
Who was you favorite teacher growing up and WHY were they your favorite?
Last month I posted this picture on Facebook…
And received over 30 comments from former classmates who came out of the woodwork to reminisce on just how awesome Mr. Thorn was. He was by far everyone’s favorite teacher because of how he related to all of his students through sports and music and just made learning FUN.
The great teachers are the ones that stick with you. Mr.Thorn was a great teacher. Mrs. Cogdill is a great teacher. Help her (and other great teachers across the country!) by donating to Adopt-A-Classroom today. These teachers need our help to keep that incredible learning experience alive.
