Oooo Oooo – Merry Christmas Eve Eve (yes, it’s a day I’ve been “celebrating” for years)! I sorta feel like as the day goes on today, I’m going to end up looking more and more like this guy…
Hopefully I can pull it together.
I have a funny feeling that there are going to be some cookies in my future today (you’ll see why in a second), so I made sure to take some precautionary measures this morning in an attempt to balance things out.
First up – Workout
I was in the mood for cardio today so I decided to do my Pyramid Treadmill Workout. My latest adjustment to make to that workout is to substitute the 5 minutes @ 6.0mph with 1 minute @ 8.5mph. That way, it shaves about 4 minutes off my time and ups the intensity just a teeny bit more. Give it a try!
Next up – Prep a Healthy Lunch
This actually caused somewhat of a conundrum this morning with breakfast. As I was making breakfast, I also figured I’d prep lunch. I knew I wanted to fill up with lots of veggies and protein, so I whipped up a quick veggie & egg scramble, complete with a melted wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese.
Well this thing ended up smelling so darn good that I almost switched things up last minute. Thank goodness I didn’t, because breakfast was incredible today. Which brings me to…
Next Step – A Hearty, Healthy Breakfast
Not that this isn’t always the case, but ya know.
Today’s bowl of oatmeal was extra special, thanks to one mini piece of prep work. After I finished my workout this morning, I filled my usual saucepot with 1/3 cup water and 2 teaspoons chia seeds. I let the seeds soak while I was getting ready, so by the time I came out, they were already starting to absorb the water and “puff” up.
Last Step – Lots of Water!
I loaded up my water bottles today and plan on making several trips to the bathroom chugging like it’s my job.
IMPORTANT INFO AHEAD – KEEP READING!
So last night, I ended up being pretty busy in the kitchen, putting together all of these…
I have my tray to bring to work (hence the reason I am foreseeing cookies in my future today!)…
And then I wound up with this other tin…
Hmmm…what shall I do with this extra tin of Homemade Christmas Cookies?
Ohhhhhh, I know! It’s Day 5 of Giveaway Week, isn’t it??
Well isn’t that just perfect! How ‘bout we put these babies up for grabs?
