This morning’s breakfast was an epic fail.
Blueberries and almond butter? Ew. My two favorite things don’t mesh well. Thankfully I thought ahead last night and prepped some overnight oats so I didn’t have to labor over what I was going to eat this morning.
Refreshing Overnight Cereoats
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup almond milk + 1/2 cup water
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp flaxseed meal
Microwave 1:30, let cool, and stick it in the fridge overnight.
If you can wait until morning to eat them, add:
1 heaping tsp cinnamon
1 tsp agave (or other sweetener)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup fruit of choice
2 Tbsp nut butter
The best part = add some milk so you trick your body and mind into thinking you’re eating cereal, except this time you don’t have to go back for fourths…
Bad news: I think I’ve hit a plateau in exercise. I had no desire to go to the gym, like most days have been lately. I went anyways and completed a great workout, but I need something to spice up my daily sweat time! Any ideas??!!
Interval Run & Walk
Don’t let the numbers deceive you…this is the hardest treadmill workout I’ve done in quite some time, even with walking involved.
I then did the same thing on the elliptical, but wasn’t gasping for air.
Y’s, T’s, I’s – 2×12
One-arm row – 2×15 (each arm)
Close-grip lat pulldown – 2×15
Bicep curls – 2×15
Reverse flyes on stability ball – 2×12
Reverse flyes on machine – 2×15
Bicep curls/hammer curls/Side bicep curls – 5/5/5 (do twice)
50 crunches on stability ball
Here’s some links on the importance of working out your back. Besides the fact that you can wear a backless dress and feel HAWT.
Yoga Poses for Posture
For those who sit at a desk all day
I will finally be doing some cooking tonight for din din since I’m off work. Yay!
