Breakfast/ Exercise/ Fitness

Slow Going

It was hard to get up this Monday morning!

Ryan and I were lazy for awhile but finally got going around 8:30. I had another bowl of my new Barbara’s Shredded Oats (cinnamon kind) for breakfast with soymilk and a banana and Ryan had his usual peanut butter toast :). We watched golf highlights for a little while and then Ryan headed to work and I headed upstairs to the gym. I have a feeling the next two weeks of school are going to be late nights as we start getting into wedding cake production so there’s definitely going to be some mornings where I need to catch up on my sleep rather than hit the gym. So, I’m exercising as much as I can right now! The gym upstairs is tiny but has everything I need really. I warmed up on the treadmill then did pull ups and dips, chest press, triceps, step ups with 12 lb weight (these kill me!!) and a few leg machines.


I’m headed back to Orlando to go grocery shopping, clean and get everything done because the rest of the week is go-go-go! This weekend coming up is Ryan and my 2 year anniversary though! 🙂

    That was so sweet of Ryan to look up vegetarian restaurants! Your dress is so cute!

    I am hoping you can help me since you are from the south, how do you make iced tea? I have no idea what ratios of things to use? From what I have heard traditional iced tea is rather high calories, so I loved to hear how you do it, since I am guessing you make a healthy version. Thanks!

    I hate step ups. I do them, but I think they are my most dreaded exercise. They totally kill me too.

    Lauren- traditional SOUTHERN iced tea is high in calories because it’s “sweet tea,” or tea made with lots of sugar or sugar syrup. Otherwise you can steep tea bags in water and drink it unsweetened, or add sugar or sugar substitute to taste.

    I don’t make iced tea too often but when I do I usually use green tea mixed with an herbal tea such as peach and don’t add any sweetener to it…typical southern style iced tea is AMAZING but SO high in calories and sugar, like beth said. Iced tea can be very healthy but you just have to nix the sweetener. Something like agave nectar would be great to sweeten already prepared ice tea with because unlike honey, it dissolves in cold liquids.
