Heyyyyy there and a big ‘ol happy Wednesday to you!
I’ll tell ya, I am in such a good mood right now – the sun is shining, I’m off of work for the day, I’ve eaten some delicious food, had a couple (yes, a couple) killer workouts for the day, AND I have fun stuff planned for tonight.
Does it get much better than that? I didn’t think so…so let me fill ya’ll in!
This morning was an early shift at work, so since I had some time in between sessions, I made sure to squeeze in my own workout. According to my Bootcamp schedule, today’s workout called for 20 minutes of steady state cardio (I did 10 minutes each on the elliptical and treadmill) + “Workout B.”
Now, you guys remember me talking about Workout B last week, right? Well guess what…it’s not gettin’ any easier! My quads were still burnin’ today, and thanks to this week’s tempo changes, the moves were extra challenging – in a good way, of course!
Once I was finished with my own workout, I had about an hour before my next session, so I used that time to eat the breakfast that I brought along with me. I also somehow managed to wind up with a 1-pump DD’s Caramel Almond iced coffee with skim milk…
Not quite sure how that happened.
Breakfast + coffee were amazing. I made a batch of overnight oats last night and was psyched to be able to make them “jar” style since I finally used up the last of my TJ’s almond butter.
Want to know something funny? Some (no, probably all) of you will most likely gasp when you find out just how long I’ve had this jar of almond butter. I actually challenge you to try and find out…I posted about it on here, umm, a while ago.
Let me know if you can find it. Maybe I’ll even throw in a prize.
But anyway…today’s oats were definitely top notch. I added in a bunch of fresh blueberries for nutrients + volume and topped it with some Love Grown Foods Sweet Cranberry Pecan granola for the mere fact that the stuff is just incredible.
I love me some overnight oats.
I finished up the rest of my shift at work today with a pretty killer Tabata class. The attendance is still on the low side, but that’s okay; we just started promoting it a bit more, so I’m hoping I’ll start getting a few more to trickle in.
Today’s participants were definitely nice and sweaty on their way out the door (myself included) and they seemed to like it, so that definitely ended my day on a good note.
Now, it’s about time for me to go grab some lunch…I’m thinking a turkey sandwich sounds pretty awesome right about now!
Question for the Afternoon:
So just how old do you think that almond butter REALLY is?
