Killing Two Birds With One Stone

by Courtney on March 2, 2012

So remember this morning when I said that cardio just wasn’t cuttin’ it for me? Well, apparently I lied…because only an hour after typing that up, I suddenly found myself smack dab on the treadmill. Who knew?

I had been sitting and catching up on some emails when I got a quick, out-of-nowhere burst of “ants in my pants.” I was also extremely cold and my Raynaud’s was getting out of control, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone by squeezing in a quick session.

Twenty minutes was my max, so I went the quick and efficient route with some HIIT in the form of my “Give It Your All” HIIT Workout. The time actually flew by, and in the end, I cured both my numb white fingers and those ants in my pants. Saweeeet!


Once I got my sweaty self showered up, it was time for lunch. Then again, I’ll let you decide what you want to call it…


Lookin’ a little like breakfast around here again, eh? Winking smile

I just can’t help myself. Breakfast foods are just tasting SO good to me lately, and I love just how versatile they can be. Today’s meal came in two parts…

Part 1: Egg white omelet with provolone, spinach, and tomato slices, topped with some pineapple salsa


Part 2: Vanilla Chobani mixed with lots of fresh strawberries, blueberries, and the last of my bag of Love Grown Foods granola. It’s a good thing I have a few more bags left in the pantry!


I’ve also been snacking a TON on these today…


Has anyone else tried these Emerald Cinnamon Roast Almonds? Holy crap, they are ahhhhMAZING…and Trouble with a capital T, if ya ask me. Oy vey.


I have another short shift at work later this afternoon, and after that, Jay and I are planning on meeting up with my parents for a couple drinks (haven’t seen them in over two weeks!) and then heading out to a movie with some friends. Here’s to hoping that short shift goes by extra speedy.

As a side note, a big ‘ol THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU is going out to all of you for your super kind “congrats” wishes and for voting in the Fitness Magazine Blog Award Contest. I honestly can’t even begin to tell you how much it means to me to have you guys routing me on.

Hope everyone is having a Fantastic Friday!! Smile

I LOVE those cinnamon almonds! They also come in 100 calories packs which is goof for the portion control if ya no what I mean! Have you tried the cocoa almonds? They are also verrrry dangerous!

Your lunch looks awesome! And I’ve never had the cinnamon nuts, but I love the cocoa covered almonds! So I’m sure I’d love those, too!

Those Emerald Nuts with Cinnamon are beyond addicting! I had to stop buying them because I could eat one tube in a sitting it was horrible! I have no will power. Your omelets are always so picture perfect! I need to know your secret mine, always look like a lumpy mess.

I love those almonds! I also like the dark chocolate cocoa grocery store had a Chocolate/Peanut Butter Emerald Nut combo with different types of nuts either coated in the cocoa or a peanut butter coating and they are DELICIOUS!

Congratulations on your nomination! So exciting!

Now that’s the kind of lunch I like to eat. I find myself leaning towards breakfast foods no matter what time of the day it is. Those cinnamon roast almonds- yum! Since I know you like to bake have you seen the homemade chocolate chips and peanut butter chips? I wonder if you can make homemade CINNAMON chips?!

Mmm! That Chobani looks so good!


17 Erica @ For the Sake of Cake March 2, 2012 at 9:46 pm

I have not spotted those almonds yet, & it’s probably a good thing I haven’t. I may have to avert my eyes at the grocery store this week!
