What a great start to a day! It’s not even 9 a.m. and I have gotten in a hard workout, eaten a delicious oatmeal breakfast, done a load of laundry, cleaned, mopped and swept the kitchen and dining room floors, and best of all the SUN is shining hard this morning!!!
“Exercise Is A Gift To Yourself That Keeps Giving”
Read this in Health Magazine this morning and it’s so true. Not only short-term (the article was referring to the “afterburn” from a hard workout) but long-term as well.
This morning I did 30 minutes on the stairmaster, 5 on the ET, and then pull-ups, shoulders, push-ups (which are getting easier!).
Before I left I had half a homemade bagel with some almond butter –
We put pear in our oats today – yum! We do this a lot in the fall when there’s an abundance of pears. Boscs are my favorite – I love the gritty skin. We add the pear in the beginning just like the banana so it cooks into the oats.
Topped with toasted almonds, almond butter, flax and maple syrup –
Check out that sunshine!
All together with coffee and daffodils –
Breakfast today was about 450 kcal, 11 grams fiber, and 19 grams protein.
After breakfast I worked my upper body again by cleaning the dining room and kitchen floors as quickly as I could. Now I’m sufficiently tired!! It feels SO GOOD to have a major cleaning project done. I challenge you all to do ONE major cleaning project that you’ve been putting off today – whatever you have time for, do something that will take one minute or an hour. Plus, it’s good exercise!
OK, in the spirit of all of you Canon in D lovers yesterday I HAVE to share my absolute favorite version ever! It’s by the Canadian Brass. This is the version I walked down the aisle to (our musicians even used the Canadian Brass music). However, my version skipped from the beginning to the middle to the end in 60 seconds with some editing. The end of this version is my favorite part! We had a brass quintet at our wedding – it makes me want to cry just thinking about it I love brass so much! It was probably my favorite part of my wedding day….. well, maybe second to eating our raspberry chambord cake 😉
