Working out at home
For breakfast this morning, I worked on perfecting my pumpkin oats. Today’s bowl contained oats, pumpkin, light syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and topped with raisins and almond butter.
It was pretty good but still not it. I think maybe I need to switch back to oat bran 🙂
For lunch, I found another new use for an avocado (for me). I smashed it up on some whole wheat bread to have with my leftover soup from lunch on Saturday.
It was yummy! I’ve got one more left…what should I do with it?
I had this snack after class today.
I love this flavor (Ginger Snap) it’s very spicy and goes well with peppermint tea!
I had planned on making spaghetti squash for dinner tonight but I got home late, walked the dog and just felt kind of lazy. So I decided to make cannelini beans instead.
I cooked the beans with onions and sage and threw them on some prepared couscous (which I’ve now had two days in a row) and topped it all off with some Sriracha.
I sat on the couch for a while and let my dinner settle and watched a few minutes of “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” which I haven’t seen in a while!
Then I went upstairs to work out! I decided to utilize some of my home equipment since I couldn’t make it to the gym today.
I got in a lot of upper body moves, squats, lunges and abs. I was sweating when I was done and my muscles were shaky. I think it was a success!
Do you work out at a gym or at home? What is good or bad about it?
I noticed at home, I get more distracted. It’s also hard to do certain moves that I like because I don’t have a bench or a balance ball at home. But it works when you have no other choice!
This workout called for a snack afterward. Cinnamon chip toast with almond butter and chocolate chips. Perfect.
That’s all I’ve got for now. Hope you all had a good Monday!
Just remember, if anything went wrong today, today is almost over. Wake up tomorrow, smile at yourself in the mirror and stop sweating the small stuff. It’s just not worth it!
Good night 🙂
