I Like It Green
Hello, how goes it? I got up nice and early this morning and have been crossing things off my to-do list right and left.
First thing first…breakfast! Today’s inspiration came from Miss Caitlin. She is sort of famous for her pumpkin yogurt, and even though it’s no longer “pumpkin season”, she still enjoys her orange yogurt bowls on a regular basis. I love pumpkin, so yesterday while on my grocery quest, I bought a huge 30 oz. can of pumpkin. I was really excited adding another item to my breakfast possibilities list, but was so disappointed when I did not like it [icky texture]. I maybe ate half of what is pictured, and then resorted to a piece of toast. Dang it! Now I’ve got a life-supply of canned pumpkin that I need to figure out what to do with. Ideas?
1/3 cup Pumpkin, 1/3 cup 0% Plain Greek, 1/3 cup Humboldt Honey Granola + a few raisins & drizzle of agave
Whole Wheat Toast with Real Butter, Cinnamon & Sugar
…sometimes you just need the real deal.
Next on my list: SPIN! I went to my usual 10:00am class at The Resort and left an hour later after a rockin’ ride. I think that makes three hard rides for the week – yippee!
After running a couple errands, I refueled with a Green Monster. Oh, how I missed these. It’s been far too long.
In the mix:
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 T ground flax
1 cup fresh spinach
…polished off with of hunk of 73% dark chocolate, of course!
I am hoping the addition of the oats to my smoothie will make it stick to my ribs a little longer than normal, so I can keep moving on down my Saturday “chore” list.
What are ya’ll up to today? Anyone have a kick-butt workout to share?
Your Questions Answered
What’s your workout schedule like? Do you plan it out or just do whatever you feel like doing that particular day?
My workout schedule is fairly random. It changes depending on whether or not I am at school [where I have a “free” gym], or at home where I do not belong to a gym, but have friends to run with/make me run a million miles =] I currently exercise an average of 5 days per week. I would probably prefer 6, but my school schedule makes that difficult. With the luxurious recreation center on campus [a.k.a. The Resort], I am able to switch up my workouts…as there are numerous types of cardio machines and fun classes, such as Zumba. The majority of my gym workouts usually include some sort of strength training as well. While at home, my workouts consist of running and DanceFit classes [run 3-4 days a week & dance 3 days].
