Don’t you love days when you get the “workout blush”!? I had one today and it was accompanied by a great workout: 30 sweaty minutes on the stepmill, 15 on the squirrelliptical and 10 of lunges/upper body lifting. I think it was the warm weather that jumpstarted the good, warm workout.
I remembered to take note of my stats again:
In Zone: 35:04
Avg. HR 155
Max. HR 174 (prob. in the last 10 minutes of the stepmill – I was sweating buckets!)
Calories burned: 455
I came home super excited about Spring Blend. It has my very favorite flavors: caramel and butterscotch. And it has the most beautiful label!
I was also in oat heaven today thanks to two new ingredients: Trader Joe’s Blueberry Fruit Preserves and Fresh Market Bourbon Sugared Pecans (<—- NOT low fat at all and covered in buttery sugar! Use sparingly 🙂 )
Blueberry Crumble Oats

- 2-3 tbsp wheatberries
- 1 tbsp flax
