Breakfasts have been on the light side because we usually do our workouts in the morning. The latest one was a mix of cardio and strength moves – everything from push ups to squat jumps. We did each exercise (10 of them) for 1 minute, then 45 seconds then 30 seconds 3x through. Great workout! We ended with a short run to the pier and back.

Preworkout toast with almond butter –

Inside for lunch, I had a Virginia roll with egg, avocado and cheese that was epic. Plus cherries and chips. We have gone through so many avocados!

We lucked out with gorgeous weather these past few days. Blue skies and mild temps. I remember sweltering on the beach other summers, so these 80-something degree days is a blessing. Especially since I’m not thrilled about swimming with the sharks this year! Breakfast yesterday – scrambled eggs and swirl toast. For our workout we geared […]

The mint was really good. Also included: milk, yogurt, oats, frozen […]
