I’m glad you are all excited about the Sweaty Bands! I wore one of mine this morning during my 3.75 mile run. It was on the treadmill, since it’s currently raining outside, but it’s better than not at all, right?
I was in the mood for plain old cereal this morning; no protein smoothie (which is usually topped with cereal or granola anyway). Luckily, the new Kashi cereal I bought yesterday has 13g of protein per serving!
I topped it with almond milk, blueberries, blackberries, and sunflower seed butter for a balanced breakfast.
I was go-go-go this morning! I got so much done in two hours, which makes me feel better about the fact that I have to head into work at 4pm. After taking care of some IIN work, blog work, and personal things, I made myself a small Chobani bowl with almond butter, bananas, and Love Grown granola.
And yes, despite leaving my day job, I still eat snacks and lunch at my desk sometimes. Is it just me, or does my life look like a big bowl of cereal and fruit? Seriously, it’s all I crave!
I realized that I had a few workouts I wanted to share with you guys. One of then was a treadmill interval workout, but when I started typing it up in excel, it was SO long and confusing that I decided to just nix it. I’ll just have to complete a modified version of it sometime next week and then share it with you. I do however, have here the quick upper body workout that I completed last Saturday. The idea of it came from the CrossFit workout I did.
- 1 minute on the row machine, aiming to burn as many calories as possible in that minute
- 1 minute push press with 15 lb. medicine ball, as many as possible
- 1 minute pushups (start with regular and switch to modified when needed), as many as possible
Repeat 4-6 times (I did 6) for a burning back, shoulder, and chest workout!
Alright, back to being productive, but one more thing before I go.
