Not just my oats this morning ( ), but Kelly’s video at the bottom!
I didn’t even wake up when the husband left at 3:30 this morning – but then I woke up at 5am shaking and freaked out from a horrible dream about one of my parents friends getting killed in a hut collapse in a foreign country. It was so creepy.
My alarm officially went off at 6, and I got up, did 20 minutes of YogaDownload Intermediate Morning Flow. It was the one with all the backbends (I had forgotten) but I still really enjoyed it. I’m liking the flow and strength moves so much more these days (but still don’t want to do more than 20 minutes!)
The oat combo was a good one:
- 1/2 cup oats, milk, water, tiny banana, pinch salt (just felt like a bigger portion today)
- 3 tiny dried figs, a pinch each of cranberries and raisins
- 1/2 tbsp ground flax
- ~3 walnuts, broken into pieces
- ~1 tbsp Blueberry Vanilla Crackle Granola Plank
- Spoonful EF PB
I had this Pure Joy tea that a reader gave me in Chicago! I made me feel very clean 😉
Also made sure to take my vitamin for the Vit. D boost to help combat my SAD, as we have a horrible cloudy/rainy day. I used to take a vitamin every day, then I moved it to every other day when my prof said there’s no reason not to for people who eat very healthy, but then I just kept forgetting it! I know from past diet analyses that I’m getting at least 75-85% of most of my vitamins and minerals from my diet (over a 3-day average, and of course some of them were over 100% like vitamin A!) but 75% isn’t 100%! I think I’d have to just eat a lot more overall to get 100% naturally on everything, and that would probably mean eating more energy than I need.
You guys know that I am not a huge fan of strength training and am always trying to cut corners! So I asked Kelly of Every Gym’s Nightmare if she’d do a video for us on how to reduce weight lifting time by combining exercises. She put together this speedy workout – in under 8 minutes!! We ALL have 8 minutes to spare 😉 Her last exercise, the Blurpees (I hope I said that right) are what I made Kelsey and I do in our bootcamp on Friday. I agree – they are tough! I add a jump out of the squat to the end of mine for an extra killer boost.
So without further ado, thank you Kelly!!
I’m off to tackle to-dos.
And to the gym later to give Kelly’s moves a try
