Decadence for Breakfast

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!! 😀

    So, I was wondering I sometimes do exercise on demand when I’m crunched for time as well and I find they are mostly sculpting. I took Jillians sculpting this a.m Do you think it gives you a great workout without a bunch of cardio?

      I usually try to choose videos that keep me moving for the entire duration. That way, I still do get the cardio…it just doesn’t seem as obvious as say, a run would.

    My new favorite lunch is the cartons of organic soup. They last me about 4-5 lunches and they’re only $2.50 most of the time. I always supplement them with a salad or half a sammich. I admire that you can eat raw broccoli, I never could. I love broccoli, but I can’t stand the way it feels raw.
