Ready for the Weekend

by Meghann on April 16, 2009

It’s been one of those morning where I have to keep reminding myself it’s Thursday. For some reason the idea of Friday keeps entering my head and I feel slightly bummed when I realize I am still a day away from that beautiful day. Weekend you are so close, just hurry up and get there already! 😉

It was in the 50s for my run this morning. I know, I know many of you would be greatful for the ‘heatwave’ but for a Florida girl like me, that required a long sleeve shirt. The long sleeve shirt was able to keep me warm through my 5 mile run which I completed in 47 minutes, thank you very much!

I feel like ever since the 30 Day Shred Challenge ended I have just been focusing on running and am losing any definition I gained in the challenge. So this morning after my 10 minutes of deep post-run stretching I opened up Wiggs’ Ab-Solutely work out page and followed along her 15 step ab routine.

Wiggs has such a wonderful sense of humor, it was nice to have a good laugh during the work out. Each move was tough and burned, just what I needed. I can’t wait to try part deux of the work out. If you are looking to change up your ab routine or need someone to tell you what to do (like I do) then you should check out the routine  yourself!

My breakfast this morning was very photogenic.

I had 1/3 cup Kashi Cinnamon Harvest, 2/3 cup Kashi H2H, Strawberries, Blackberries, Vanilla Chobani, and some Honest Foods Pomegranate Walnut Crisp Granola Plank crumbled on top.

Loved the Granola Plank in the yogurt. Soooo tasty! Don’t forget I’m still collecting suggestions on how to consume these lovely planks in the comment section of my giveaway post. You have until Midnight EST tonight to enter to win your own lovely set of granola planks! 🙂

I’m counting down the hours until the weekend!!

Whoa when i got up this morning it was 50, I was still a little chillly so I totally understand I just can’t believe that it was the same temp in NJ and Florida, although I’m sure it’s much warmer there now.
I’m so happy today is Thursday that means my weekend starts at 5 today!

Hi Meghann,

I’ve been reading your blog (and Caitlin’s and Jenna’s)daily for a long time now, but have never commented. I live relatively close to Long Beach and would have loved to meet up with you, but I’m leaving the country that day with my girlfriends. Just wanted to share that I’ve been looking forward to you coming here and I’m so disappointed I’ll miss it!

19 Courtney April 16, 2009 at 5:29 pm

I wish I could be there!

20 lisaheartspizza April 16, 2009 at 5:42 pm

I wish I could meet up with you in Long Beach. Here it’s nice out there! And that breakfast looks delish.

21 Sharon April 16, 2009 at 7:02 pm

Oh wow, sounds exciting about the meetup!

22 Wiggs April 20, 2009 at 9:03 am

I meant to write and say THANK YOU for the link to my ab routine! My abs are screaming in terror right now just thinking about the workout I’m about to subject them to. 🙂
