Some people wake up at 6 a.m. on the weekend to get in their morning run. I wake up that early to take GMAT practice tests. Oh, the joys of studying. I was happy to get it out of the way because it seems like we have had such busy weekends lately. I’m less than three weeks away from the big test day!
Guess what I (finally) got this week…
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the bulk of the purchases leading up to my Starbucks gold card came after I started studying.
I’m a sucker for reward programs.
Ironically, my first purchase with my new gold status wasn’t caffeinated.
I had an 8 a.m. meeting in downtown Orlando and needed a good on-the-go breakfast, but I didn’t want to be stuck carrying my overnight oats container all day. Starbucks oatmeal is so delicious.
I added in all the available nuts and fruit and omitted using any brown sugar. The oatmeal was delicious unsweetened. Overnight oats has given me a new appreciation for how good the simplest form of oatmeal can taste without any sweeteners.
Guess what else arrived this week…
Gotta love Girl Scout Cookies season!
After waffling for about two years, Kevin and I finally decided to cancel our membership to LA Fitness. We only continued going there out of convenience, and I haven’t been going as regularly due to studying. Most of my workouts have been at home or outside. Kevin started taking TRX classes and playing in different sport leagues, so neither of us were using our gym memberships enough to justify the costs. Plus, it felt like everyone around us was paying cheaper membership rates, and I just haven’t been thrilled with the quality of equipment, staff or crowds. We’re going to see what gym suits us the best after I’ve taken the GMAT. Please send any Orlando gym recommendations my way!
