Iiiiit’s Monday my friends! Are you ready for it?!?
I got my Monday started off on the right foot with a sweaty workout. This morning’s workout came, again, in the form of a another awesome Exercise on Demand video: Cardio Sculpt by Jeanette Jennings. This is the second video I’ve tried by her, and I’m totally lovin’ it. She really kicks my booo-tayy!
As good as today’s workout was, I couldn’t help but feel somewhat bummed; yesterday was the day I was supposed to be running in the Warrior Dash, which I was beyond excited to do. I didn’t think it would be too smart of me to make my first attempt back at running so hardcore, so I didn’t participate. Even worse, I missed the deadline to transfer over my registration, so I couldn’t even get a refund. UGHH! At least I was still able to live vicariously through Jen, by reading her post on the race, which she ran with her boyfriend. Great job, Jen!
Since I tried a new workout this morning, why not try a new breakfast?? I picked up some Van’s waffles at the store yesterday, and have been psyched to try them out since. I’d really been craving frozen waffles lately!
I toasted up two waffles, and topped ‘em off with a pumpkin + plain Oikos Greek yogurt combo, 1 tbsp PB2, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a drizzle of maple syrup, and some banana slices…
It looks soooo decadent, yet I guess the entire plate to be about 300 calories?
Then the heavens opened up… “Oh myyyyyyyy…” Absolutely AMAZING! Van’s, where have you been all of my life?!?
Now THIS is a way to start off a Monday morning! Along with some Almond Amaretto coffee, of course.
Lunch today was super quick to prepare, thanks to some leftovers from yesterday’s football spread. I will admit though, I think I may miss my “Monday Usual” just a little bit today. Perhaps this week it will have to be the “Tuesday Usual?”
Some more Roasted Eggplant & Feta Dip + pita chips. (I am still sooo happy I decided to make this recipe…it’s SO good!!)
Leftover veggies, which definitely are not as fun to look at when they’re packaged in a sandwich baggie. I really miss being able to set up my lunches nice and pretty.
All packed up, along with some strawberry Greek yogurt.
Hope you all have a great start to your Monday!!
