Exercising: My Right To Vote

So, I went to bed last night with the greatest intention of waking up early this morning and getting in a good workout. Needless to say, that didn’t happen. My alarm went off at 5 AM and I quickly reset it for 6:30 AM. I think my body (and mind) will thank me later in the day. Once I woke up, I spent about 20 minutes searching different blogs for something to make for breakfast. I knew I wanted something warm and hearty since it was a whopping 32 degrees outside! Talk about COLD! What’s better than pancakes? Yummy and filling J I found a great recipe on Edible Perspectives for Coconut Flax Pancakes with a Greek yogurt drizzle on top. Sounded perfect to me! I ended up using Blueberry Chobani and eliminating the strawberries. It was fairly simple & quick to make, and 3 hours later, I’m still full (which is surprising for me!)

After scarfing down my breakfast and getting ready for work, I headed out the door to go rock my vote for this year’s election! Surprisingly, this is my first year voting. I was eligible to vote last presidential election but I felt as though I was not interested enough in politics to just go out and vote just because I could. I feel very strongly about “voting just to vote.” I believe people should be knowledgeable about what they are voting for, rather than just voting for a Republican or Democratic Party because that is who their parents support. Let me just say that I am proud of my decision and it is a wonderful feeling knowing that I have made a difference in this upcoming election.

On a different note, I found this quote this morning and it has really given me the inspiration and motivation I need for this upcoming work day (and I hope it will for you as well!)

There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow. So today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live.

Dalai Lama

There is nothing we can do about yesterday, it is gone. There is nothing we can do about tomorrow, it has yet to come. Live in the present and make your choices in the now; do what makes you happy now. Remember, tomorrow is not promised, this may be your only chance.

P.S. I created a kick-butt total-body-jumprope-circuit workout and I can’t wait to complete it after work and share it with you all! Hope everyone has a rockin’ Tuesday!
