Good morning, friends!
Did everyone remember to set their clocks forward last night?! I was so confused and accidentally set my clock back by mistake! Good thing I didn’t have to be anywhere (like work) this morning at 4:00!! Actually, I slept awful last night and was awake at 3:30 anyways…..my allergies are SO BAD right now and I couldn’t breath at all last night. I finally pulled myself out of bed at 6:15 because I just couldn’t lay there in congestion misery anymore.
I ate a toasted kashi go lean strawberry flax waffle with almond butter—
And headed to the gym to make good use of my early morning. I’m trying to cross-train more these days to get my heart rate up and build my cardio endurance without running every day, which I know I can’t do because of my shin. So, this morning I hopped on the elliptical (ugh boring) for 30 sweaty minutes. Afterwards I did a little strength training (biceps and shoulders) and ended with abs. Does anyone have any cross-training advice?? I find the elliptical SO BORING!!!!! I try to bring magazines, books, ipod, blackberry….anything! But its still so boring and I find myself just zoning out. Plus, its really really hard for me to actually get my heart rate up there on it.
When I got back I pulled out the breakfast cookie I had assembled last night before bed and made a cup of english breakfast tea (with a spoonful of organic sugar)
This was pretty much the most delicious thing EVER because I totally covered it with sugary sweet strawberry shortcake strawberries!!!!! YUM!!!! The breakfast cookie itself was a combo of 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein, 1 tbsp almond butter, 1/2 mashed banana and a splash of unsweetened vanilla hempmilk. I need to get more of this hempmilk asap but its not on sale anymore and is $4.50 for ONE BOX!!! Ridiculous. As much as I totally love it, my wallet does not and I guess I’ll have to go back to drinking silk light vanilla or skim once I finish this :(.
I’m headed inside to shower (I’m sitting outside on the steps totally hacking someone’s wireless right now) and then go to church.
Have a great morning!
