Why do I not do yoga more often??? It’s such a great way to start off your day!
While it took me two rounds of hitting the snooze button to actually get out of bed, I knew I’d feel a lot better if I just got up and DID IT. So I rolled myself out of bed and into some yoga clothes, grabbed my mat and my remote control and got to work.
This morning’s yoga workout of choice came from Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown video from Exercise on Demand. I know I’ve said it before, but I really enjoy this video. The way that she combines the yoga power poses with her typical training techniques really gets your heart pumpin’ and works up a sweat! I’m thinking I may actually invest in her video because I want to see what the Level 2 would be like.
I’ve been ready for today’s breakfast ever since I put it together last night.
Looooove me some Overnight Oats!!
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 diced pear
- dried cranberries
- dollop of almond butter
Apparently, I was all about the “1/2’s” last night?
Either way, I’m glad I was because this was one awesome bowl. I’ll bet the addition of the protein powder has something to do with it, but it’s so thick and creamy! It almost reminds me of the chilled Swiss oatmeal I had while in Chicago last month. Mmmmmm.
Along with my oats, I have a delicious mug of Almond Amaretto coffee to take with me, BUT I apparently brewed a little too much, so I got to enjoy an extra 1/2 a mug before leaving the house.
We’re officially OUT of this kind now…looks like a stop at The Fresh Market is on the horizon!
It’s gonna be a rainy one today in New York…better make sure I don’t forget my umbrella! (I’m kinda known for doing that…)
Question for the Morning:
What’s your favorite way to spend a rainy day?
