Brrrrrr it was cold getting out of my bed this morning. I debated skipping the gym this morning because I did not like the idea of putting on all kinds of outerwear to drive in the dark to do some dumb machine. But I made a PROS and CONS list in my head and the pros vastly outweighed the cons so I went. That trick always works.
I had a hard time breaking a sweat today though 🙁 30 minutes of ET (on my usual settings – my HR would just not climb!), 10 minutes of stat biking and 10 minutes of Stairmaster. I ended with the stairs and finally got my HR above 150. I’m wondering if all of my running has made me more fit and that’s why I’m having trouble getting a good workout on the machines lately?
And then I saw a dead roach in the main gym hallway!!!! They just FLOCK to me!
I was more than ready for breakfast today and dove right into my favorite combo. Would you believe I ate that whole jumbo size can of pumpkin in less than a week!?
I could not, however, decide which photos I liked the best!!!
HOT or COLD!?
I’m leaning towards cold…
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup milk
- Half banana
- Half tbsp chia seeds
- Pinch salt
- 1/3 cup cottage cheese, stirred in at end
- 1/4 cup pumpkin, stirred in at end (I prefer more but that’s all that was left!)
- Cacao Bliss, microwave melted in the jar and spooned on as frosting
- A tsp of TJ’s PB
- Slivered almonds
I couldn’t decide on the shape today either. Here’s the progression over 30 seconds – what do you think!?
Love me some Windows Live Writer that makes all this formatting SO EASY! (And love my fast wide-screen computer too 🙂 )
OPEN SKY NEWS!!
We finagled a way to get the price of Naturally Nutty Cinnamon Vanilla Sunflower Butter down with the company! $14 –> $7 for TWO 15 oz jars!
It involves TWENTY (that’s 20) of you 🙂 If 20 of you buy it, the price gets cut in HALF. Also, free shipping! If MORE THAN 20 of you buy it, you all win the discount!!
Check the site for specs on the jars. Promo begins at 9:00 EST
If less than 20 of you purchase, I believe the transactions are cancelled, so you have nothing to lose. (I have a feeling 20 will go for it though 🙂 I would if I didn’t have a jar in my cabinet right now!)
Off to work!
