I love the feeling in the air right before a holiday. It seems to be charged with momentum and energy! Andrew is coming over today to brew beer with Matt, and I have a number of things to do on my list, so I decided to workout first thing today. I laid in bed for a while (nice and cozy!) visualizing my day if I worked out first verses if I waited until noon to go and it just made sense to go. I didn’t want to bike in the cold, but once I was going it was fine.
Pre-workout stomach quencher: half a bernaner
I did 26 minutes of Stairmastering and 15 minutes of weights whilst there. I love that I’ve been doing Sculpt and yoga both once a week because I am letting those be my weight training and not worrying about doing stinky weight lifting on a regular basis. But I’m missing Sculpt this week so I forced myself to lift a little. Hated it.
Once I biked home and showered I was sooo ready for breakfast!
I had all the ingredients out for a smoothie and even had the rest of my banana in the blender and suddenly decided a smoothie was too cold and I wanted a hot bowl to snuggle with!The banana went into the pot with…
- 1/4 cup 9-grain cereal, 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- Pinch raisins
- 1/3 cup pumpkin
- 1/2 tbsp pumpkin butter
- Coconut + a few butterscotch chips (which I think are bad from being in the summer heat because they are waxy)
- Spoonful Barney Butter
Worth the wait and extra delicious because I was very hungry from my workout!
