An Acquired Taste

So apparently I’m all about scouring some awesome blogs for workout ideas this week? Yesterday, I incorporated Tina’s upper body workout (which has my arms way more sore than I had anticipated!) and today, I tried out a new workout from Brittany.

I was skimming through and found a workout of Brittany’s called the 10-10-10 Quick Interval Workout. I honestly didn’t know what I was in the mood to do today, but as soon as I saw this, it totally appealed to me. It was pretty fun to switch back and forth between the treadmill sprints and the weight exercises, and I loved that it was all done in less than 30 minutes.

I followed up that interval workout with a few moves to focus on the ‘ol abs:

Post-workout, I made myself a protein shake made with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 scoop vanilla SunWarrior protein powder, 2 tsp chia seeds, and a few drops of cocoa bean liquid stevia.


It was tasty but I will admit – drinking chia seeds is definitely an acquired taste. Especially if you’re a texture person (aka, my husband).


A couple hours later, the tummy was ready to be fed again.

Ya know, sometimes breakfast is just too good to only be enjoyed in the morning…am I right?


This morning, I was actually really cravings cereal AND eggs, but cereal ended up winning me over. Luckily, since I knew I’d be home this afternoon, I decided to just postpone my eggs until lunchtime.


I put together an incredibly savory and delicious egg and cheese sandwich, made with 1/2 cup Egg Beaters (in my microwave egg cooker), provolone cheese, turkey bacon, fresh spinach, and a smear of hummus on a toasted whole wheat English muffin.


On the side, I added some carrot sticks and grape tomatoes for munching. Smile


A little later this afternoon I have a meeting about work, which should hopefully give me a better idea of what I’ll be looking at for a schedule. I have no idea what to expect, but I guess I’ll find out soon enough!

Oh yeah, and I still need to get my act together and finish those darn cupcakes. Winking smile

    I’m baking cupcakes for my boyfriend’s birthday this weekend! I like to bake but hate icing, so I just buy the store bought stuff, which I swear is not SO bad. Boyfriend always loves it! (Gotta love those man taste buds that don’t care for quality!)

    I also eat eggs/cereal/smoothies/oats at any meal. I would have them all for breakfast if they weren’t each so filling, so I see nothing wrong in having em for lunch/dinner if I want!
