A great way to get your tastebuds into the Fall spirit is to crack open a jar of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter.
And eat a spoonful on top of your oat bran.
That is what I did for my breakfast this morning after my fabulous workout at the gym. It added just enough sweetness to the mix and a perfect blend of spices to really remind my of Fall.
For my workout this morning I did my favorite 20,20,20 combo. That would be 20 minutes on the Stair Climber, 20 minutes on the Elliptical (with moving handles) and a 20 minute run on the Treadmill. I followed that up with free weights. It was a great variety and I left the gym feeling ready to get the day going. Good thing too - I had to babysit this morning so I really needed the pep in my step. I was asked to switch days this week so I now have Wednesday off. It works out well this week since D has today off from school. That will be one less day of craziness for me seeing as I am cleaning on Friday. Remember the madness that comes with that.
When we got home I was really in need of some food. Instead of just having a snack, I made an early lunch.
I made tuna salad with a tbsp of 365 Light Mayo and a little peeled & chopped apple. I drank 2 servings of veggies too.
That would be eight ounces of V8 – I forgot how much I like this stuff.
I ate the rest of the apple dusted with cinnamon along with a TJ’s Whole Wheat Bagel and a tbsp Pumpkin Butter.
The D Man has had a pretty icky cough the past few days but is not acting sick otherwise. I think that today we will take it easy. I am hoping that by the time he has school again he will be better.
I hope you have a great day.
