This morning I was able to sleep in a tiny bit since I did not have to be at work until 8:30am rather then 8. So, instead of my alarm going off at 5:45 it went off at 6:00.. it’s really amazing what a HUGE difference those 15 minutes make in sleep world. Instead of my usual run this morning I decided I would finally break into a workout DVD I got through Netflix at the beginning of the week. When I first started to work out I discovered Netflix had this whole selection of work out Dvds and since I am too cheap to buy my own and get really bored of doing the same thing over again I really got into ordering the work out DVDs and doing them before work. Lately, I have gotten so into running and training for my 15k coming up that I keep ignoring the workout Dvds that come and just feel like running in the morning.
This morning I did Kathy Smith: Build Muscle, Shrink Fat it wasn’t that bad of a DVD actually. It was about an hour long with a 10 minute warm up, 35 minute weight/cardio session, 15 minute core work and then a 10 minute cool down. I was nice and sweaty at the end of it. I will probably try another Kathy Smith DVD in the future. She wasn’t as annoying as some of the instructors can be and she looks just like Edie from Desperate Housewives!
I have to tell everyone I am a huge cereal fan in the morning. For some reason it’s what I crave every morning. I have about 5 boxes of various cereals in my cabinet right now and because of a recent sale they just happen to all be Kashi. I am a big fan of variety and like to mix it up.
Instead of trying to pick one cereal I like to mix and match. This morning I decided on a 3/4 cup of Kashi Heart to Heart and a 1/4 cup of Kashi Autumn Wheat. I have never been a huge fan of milk, I even remember back to kindergarten days when I used to refuse the carton of milk they gave me at snack time. Milk never makes it in my cereal. Instead, I like to be very inventive with my cereal. I try to incorporate whatever fruit I have on hand and usually something mushy just to keep it together. Recently I discovered unsweetened applesauce is perfect with dry cereal!
This morning I used the last of my strawberries ( so sad because now they’re out of season and I don’t know when the next time I will be able to buy them is), a handful of green grapes, and about 3 spoonfuls of applesauce right on top. Yum! If you haven’t tried applesauce on you cereal I highly suggest it. I am obsessed!
I’m so glad it’s Friday I have a great weekend planned ahead and because of logging extra hours during the week I get to leave work early today! I hope everyone else has a Happy Friday!!
