Happy Thursday!! I have definitely gotten off to a great start. It is absolutely amazing outside this morning so I ventured out for a 6.2 mile run. Doing a shorter run leaves me plenty of time to fit in weights before my guys wake up. I tried Gina’s Summer Shape Up Week 3 Day 2 workout (shoulders, chest and triceps). It was AWESOME! I will definitely be trying her other weight routines. Thank you so much for posting all these great workouts. It is always nice to add variety to my exercises. For instance, I have never even heard of Elbow Out Extension – loved it. No worries about underarm jiggle if you add that to the routine. Go try out her workouts.
For breakfast this morning I actually mixed up something a little different – shocking, I know. I cooked my usual 1/2 cup oats on the stove with water and added Vanilla Hemp Protein instead of the rice protein. I LOVE the flavor of hemp – so nutty and earthy. I also added lots of cinnamon because it is a must in my bowl of oats.
I topped it with a banana, a sprinkle of Navitas Naturals Acai Powder and a drizzle of sunflower seed butter. The Acai powder did not add a ton of flavor, maybe the slightest bit of tartness. I was after the nutrition benefits more than a flavor enhancer. It is loaded with antioxidants, monounsaturated & polyunsaturated fatty acids. Check out their website for full details on the benefits adding Acai to your diet.
I served this combo of yumminess in my new bowl from my long distance BFF.
Look who was waiting for me to finish gobbling up my fancy feast.
Now I must go set D up with his new paints or he is going to bust. The boy has not stopped bugging me about them ALL morning. I swear it was the first thing out of his mouth today.
I hope you have great day. We are hitting the HOT zone here today – YIPPIE!!!
