Pool > Packing

by Meghann on February 19, 2011

It’s Saturday.

It’s Sunny.

It’s Warm.

I think some quality time by the pool may be in my future. πŸ˜‰

But, first…..

Maddie and I ran 3 miles this morning. I’m pretty sure Maddie is the most excited when she realizes we’re going for a run. That girl really loves running!

After the run I got some strength training in with Jackie.

The Xtreme Timesaver Training DVD was awesome. It was an intense 30 minute full body work out that had my shoulders burning in the end. I started out with 5 lb weights and ended up going down to 3 lbs half way through because the 5 was too much.

I’m trying to finish off a couple of boxes of cereal off before I move, so expect a lot of cereal in the next 14 days.

I know I’m not supposed to be stocking up on anymore food before I move, but when I was picking up cleaning supplies at Publix the other day I noticed they had expanded their greek yogurt section and a few new flavors had popped up that I hadn’t seen before.

Obviously I couldn’t resist picking up one (or three) new flavors to try.

This lovely beauty is Oikos new Super Fruits flavor. At least, I think it’s new. With how behind my Publix is at getting new flavors this could be a year old for all I know. πŸ™‚

I had the Super Fruit Oikos on top of a 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean Crisp and 1/2 cup Cinnamon Cheerios with Strawberries and Blueberries.

The flavored Oikos always tend to be a little thinner than other Greek Yogurt, but I still really enjoyed it. I believe the fresh strawberries and blueberries really complimented the super fruit flavoring nicely.

I believe that pool is still calling my name.

And packing, that’s calling my name too. Darn you, packing!

Pool is ALWAYS better than packing. Tan for those of us who don’t have pool friendly weather right now!

How fast does Maddie run? Do you guys go at your normal 9:00 pace?

It’s more like a 9:30 pace. She’s a puppy speed demon.

That is fast for a pup!

I wish it was pool weather! I can’t wait to head down south again. Yay portifino!

7 Liz (Little Bitty Bakes) February 19, 2011 at 10:44 am

I’m loving Cinnamon Cheerios! I think they have a little hint of vanilla, which is delicious. πŸ™‚ Have fun at the pool — I’m jealous!

Gosh that sounds like a wonderful day! I’d love a day at the pool. Or even just to be in Florida! I only really go to Florida in the summer, so to me it’s always summer there. Good luck with the packing!

11 Amanda @ Eating Up February 19, 2011 at 10:59 am

I haven’t seen that flavor either! Being in the Midwest, I realize that our grocery stores are the last to get the new products.

Pool time sounds like the perfect plan!

14 Fit Chick Britt February 19, 2011 at 11:17 am

I’m jealous about the pool. We’ve got the heat but it’s gloomy out. I’ll have to try the new Jackie video. I like her other one too.

I just got back from a GOTR practice which is a few blocks from the beach. It took ALL of my restraint to not go to the beach after practice! Enjoy the pool. πŸ™‚

My dog loves running with me when I’m home, but I always feel like I’m slowing her down. I live on a dirt road, so I never use a leash. She was all over the place when I had to use a leash in a 5K, but she was the winner for dogs πŸ™‚

I haven’t seen that new flavor of Oikos – I need to keep my eyes peeled. I love Oikos.

Maybe set a goal of 4 boxes and then you can have some pool time – I try to do that with myself when I have something I really don’t want to do!

When you run with Maddie do you hold the leash in your hand? Or do you have one of those belts that attaches the leash around your waist?

Leash in hand. She’s only 12 pounds and is easy to pull back πŸ™‚

Like mommy like puppy, I guess!

The stores around here are really bad about keeping up on new flavors. We still don’t have caramel Oikos!

I second your opinion that Oikos is thinner than other Greek yogurts. I just posted recently about my Greek Yogurt obsession. I can’t resist trying new flavors that pop up at the store, too! (Just tried the Oikos mini cups w/chocolate and caramel…but the yogurt is still thin). I prefer the consistency of the other brands (Chobani, Fage…even the new Dannon is pretty good).

That DVD is a killer. I have another one of Jackie’s DVD’s as well and I hurt every time I do them and I do them twice almost every week.
