Getting To Know Me

by Courtney on May 24, 2010

I really love starting my day with a good workout.  It keeps me energized, happy, and feeling like I’ve started my day off on the right foot.  I really believe that it helps play a part in making good eating decisions.  Overall, it just keeps me feeling healthy, so I figure why not carry that all throughout my day, right? :)

This morning started off on “the right foot” with a 30 minute treadmill workout.  I wasn’t in the mood to run the full time, so I swapped to a walk/run combo today:

2 minutes walking @ 4.5 mph + 4.5-7.0 incline

1 minute running @ 7.8 mph

It was great!  I loved adding in the fast-paced walk with the incline – it totally make you feel your glutes a lot more! ;)

After showering and getting ready, it was time for breakfast (aka, the best part of the morning)

Apple Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal today! :-D

Today, folks, we have:

-1/3 cup oats

-1/3 cup light vanilla soy milk

-1/3 cup water

-1/2 smashed banana

-1/4 cup chopped apples

-Golden Raisins

-Cinnamon & Nutmeg

Adding the apples gives the oats such a different flavor…I should really do it more often! :)

All topped off with a sprinkle of granola & a scoop of Maple PB.  YUMM!! :-P

So, it’s been a little over a month now that I’ve started “Sweet Tooth”.  Crazy!  I’m loving EVERY.MINUTE of it too :-D

Since I’m starting to “meet” so many fun, nice people on here, I decided why not have an “Ask Me Anything” week!

Really, ask away!  Feel free to:

-e-mail me,

-post a comment on any post this week

I’ll post your questions along with my comments as they start coming in all throughout the week.  I’m excited to hear what ya’ll want to ask! :-D

Here’s some pretty flowers to start your day off with a smile. :-D

Love it!! I too love a day that starts with a good workout and continues with good oatmeal.

Here is a question for you… what are ten things that you really want to do before you die? : )

What did your high school prom dress look like? Better yet- Do you have a prom picture that you’re brave enough to put on the internat? ;)
I know this is a random question, but my co-workers and I somehow got on this topic today and we’re bringing in embarassing/ hilarious pictures to show each other tomorrow!! SO FUN!!!
