Feeling Good

by Meghann on June 22, 2011

Good Morning!

And Happy Hump Day!

It’s been a good hump day so far:

  • I’m down to the second to last set of work outs on the NROLFW plan (meaning less reps/higher weights) and am really starting to feel the burn.
  • The AC guy is coming today to replace our unit (FINALLY!)
  • I get to see baby Patrick for lunch….. oh, and I get to hang out with Callie too!!

How’s it going in your neck of the woods?

I came home from the gym and went straight to the kitchen for a bowl of cereal.


In the bowl

  • 1/2 cup Multigrain Cheerios
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Wheat
  • 1/2 cup Kashi Golden Goddess
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Dried Fruit


It was berry-riffic (hehe)


Some other things I’m loving right now

Things are going good in Houston, finally getting some rain! I’ve been looking for that tank everywhere!! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

2 Sarah June 22, 2011 at 9:36 am

I love that target running tank too! I like that it’s not tight around the middle. Tight tops can sometimes get super uncomfortable while running.

I have a presentation that I have to do for my public speaking class today.. yikes!! I’m nervous!

Thank GOODNESS I’m not the only one who’s hooked on Switched at Birth. Goodness, ABC Family, how do you keep pumping out these ridiculous/addicting shows?!@#

I’ve got to get to Target one day (hard in Manhattan) for that line of workout gear — I’ve heard so many good things and my friend works on their advertising!

Unfortunately, my morning was off to a slow start. I still don’t feel awake!!! I think I need a yogurt bowl like yours to really wake me up…

What do you do when you finish the NROLfW workouts?

12 Meghann June 22, 2011 at 9:45 am

I have a go on the stretch machine. Is that what you meant?

13 Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday June 22, 2011 at 9:47 am

I mean, you said you were on the second last set of workouts. What is the plan when you’ve gone through all the workouts? Do you start again?

14 Meghann June 22, 2011 at 9:49 am

Oh. πŸ™‚ Well I’m almost done with the workouts for stage 1. The plan has 8 stages in total that should take a total of 6 months to complete.

15 stephanie June 22, 2011 at 1:18 pm

Hey Meghann,
Im planning on starting NROLFW soon and was curious, how do you feel after almost finishing Stage 1? Do you notice any differences?
stephanie recently posted..See You Soon!

16 Meghann June 22, 2011 at 5:11 pm

Hi Stephanie,

I plan to do a full breakdown when I’m finish with Stage 1, but I’m really enjoying it. I can see the difference in my arms and I actually feel stronger too.

17 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat June 22, 2011 at 9:41 am

YAY for the AC repair, and I’m so jealous of your holiday coming up! Happy Humpday!

Omg, Switched at Birth. So good. Between that and Pretty Little Liars, I’ve turned into an ABC Family addict!

20 Kara June 22, 2011 at 9:47 am

I was just eyeing that tank yesterday! I was wondering if it was worth 20 bucks and if the billowy bottom would make people think I was gestating. πŸ™‚

21 Meghann June 22, 2011 at 11:30 am

Not at all! It’s sooooo COMFY!

22 Kelly June 22, 2011 at 3:37 pm

I think it depends on the person, so be careful. I didn’t *think* it looked that maternity-esque on me either, but the first time I had it on in front of my boyfriend, the FIRST think out of his mouth was “is there something you want to tell me?!?” I had a few other people make comments too (and I’m tiny, nor was I sporting a food baby or anything). Such a letdown because it really is a comfortable top. Oh well.

23 Ashley @ the fit academic June 22, 2011 at 9:49 am

I love getting running gear from Target! Never seen this tank before, I’ll have to check out my local store and see if they’ve got them in!

29 Lee @ in the pink of condition June 22, 2011 at 10:06 am

About 2.5 years ago, I switched from lifting lighter weights to lifting heavier weights with fewer reps, and I have never turned back! It is seriously the best way to build muscle and scorch remaining fat. I swear by it πŸ™‚ Do you enjoy it too?

30 Meghann June 22, 2011 at 11:31 am

Love it! Plus the shorter reps make the workouts fly by much faster πŸ™‚

31 evelyne June 22, 2011 at 10:18 am

I’ve been eyeing that Target Tank for a while – is the built in bra good enough? or do you wear a sports bra underneath?

32 Amy June 22, 2011 at 11:19 am

I can only speak for myself, but I’m about a 34C and feel comfortable in just the tank. It’s made of the same material as the C9 sports bras.
Amy recently posted..springtime goals review

33 Meghann June 22, 2011 at 11:32 am

I agree with Amy. I’m a 34B/C too and I usually get away without wearing an extra sports bra on my runs. It’s really comfortable and supportive.

34 Elisabeth June 22, 2011 at 10:22 am

Ehhh…not so great here this morning. The electricity is out…too warm for that. Glad you will be getting the AC back!

35 Hope June 22, 2011 at 10:22 am

I love watching ABC Family! I am hooked on Secret Life, Pretty Little Liars, Switched at Birth, Chole King and Melissa and Joey!! Such good shows on there! πŸ™‚

I love this tank too!! (And Switched at Birth). they sell a very very similar one of the Champion Apparel website, and they have several colors in the outlet for $17.99. I just ordered 2 last night πŸ™‚

It is an awesome day indeed. Started with body flow this morning, a yummy smoothie, and work is moving along!

Question re: Target tank…. would it make me look preggers? Or just cover up any trouble areas? The later is awesome. πŸ˜‰

Enjoy the rest of your day! Hello to Callie.

Check my photos out from the Iron Girl Half Do I look preggers?!?! Nope (at least I hope not!) Can you see an inch of belly from my shirt riding up? Nope < - and that's why I LOVE this shirt! πŸ™‚

41 Carolyn @ Eat Well.Live Well.Be Well June 22, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Definitely not looking preggers, but long and lean!

I notice the sports bra underneath. Is that a must?

42 Amy June 22, 2011 at 1:47 pm

I said above to another girl who asked the same question – I can only speak for myself, but I don’t need an extra sports bra. I’m about a 34C. It’s SUCH a cute and comfortable top.
Amy recently posted..springtime goals review

43 Meghann June 22, 2011 at 5:09 pm

That was my first time wearing the top in a race, so I wore a sports bra ‘just in case.’ Usually I go without though!

44 natasha June 22, 2011 at 11:09 am

I used to do this all the time in my dining halls. They’d have runny scrambled eggs and bad bread, but their fruit would always be decent and people would never touch the plain cereals. It’s a good way to take advantage of dining halls..

My hump day has been flying by… office renovations so everyone is tearing up their cubicles. I found about 1000 post card with pre-paid 23 cent stamps. Useless, right? Yay for AC!

49 Sarah for Real June 22, 2011 at 1:20 pm

I just started reading NROLFW and noticed how much emphasis he puts on protein! It’s intimidating because I’ve never been a big meat eater. I noticed you aren’t eating (or at least you’re not blogging about) the protein intense meals he suggests, how is that working for you?
Sarah for Real recently posted..Worst Blogger Eva

50 Meghann June 22, 2011 at 5:13 pm

I struggle with getting enough protein. I purchased some Chocolate Whey Protein from Whole Foods and have been trying to sneak it in when I can, but it’s difficult to keep track. I’ve also upped my egg and meat protein to make it a little easier.

Can I ask what size tank you get? I usually go a size bigger in work out clothes, but i’m not sure how this tank runs size wise! Yes, this is my second time commenting on this post! πŸ™‚

53 Meghann June 22, 2011 at 5:13 pm

I have both medium and small, but I prefer the medium because it’s a little roomier and comfier.

I haven’t been able to get into an ABC Family show since Greek. So sad that ended πŸ™

Thank you for inspiring my new breakfast choice. I started eating cereal with yogurt, strawberries & blueberries. YUM!

62 Emily June 25, 2011 at 12:57 am

I watched an episode of switched at birth ‘by accident’ last weekend. So good!! I don’t let myself watch those shows because I know I will be hooked. What IS it with those ABC family shows??
Come to Seattle. No need for AC here. Heat kicked on last night so that means the house was colder than 62 degrees last night. I hate the cold and rain : ( You probably don’t want to hear my complaining.
