Not Another Manic Monday
Mondays feel just like Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays when you have no job and no school I woke up at my leisure which was about
8am 9am and decided to make some oats (yes, yet again) ;) The day I stop making oats will be the end of me.
Today, I was feeling like a honey day and I seriously need to get to the grocery store and buy some Honey Nut Cheerios. I get these super random cravings that I cannot get rid off unless I grocery shop. When you’re an avid foodie,you don’t get cravings for accessory items just food :P
So I give you my little humble breakfast: Honey Nut Oats
Yes it was even tastier than it looks. I’ve had mini Teddy Grahams for like 2 weeks and kept forgetting to use them! How wrong. Never again will my Teddies go uneaten. I wish they were Teddy’s from Whole Foods like Heather has :( I will be on the hunt for those.
Today was another beautiful day and I couldn’t wait for a good workout
Weight lifting days are seriously the best.
Bench press: 65 lbs (killed me) I seriously need to start getting over my embarrassment and ask for a spotter or I’m going to get killed. My arms were trembling on my last set. I had never gone up so much in weight by myself.
Leg Press: 210 lbs. Went down 10 lbs but I was able to go lower and get more of a leg burn
Lunges: 50 lbs (omgggggg wind knocker!!) These puppies will literally make you sweat.
Lat pulldowns: 87 lbs. Ok not going to lie, I did like 4 out of my 8 because my bench press tired my arms out way too much.
I always see such interesting things at the gym. Guys that rack up the pounds then only do their exercises half way. Such fail and muscle wasting potential.
And for dessert?
Greek yogurt, cinnamon, strawberries, almond butter, and a waffle toasted to perfection. Yes it was light and delightful :)
So today was my first day cutting off sorbitol. So far my tummy is happy but I can’t be singing my praises so fast. I am still consuming splenda so for now it’s just sorbitol. I almost ate a sugar free cookie that had some in it! Eek must read ingredients in everythinggg.
I’m also listening to these audio books on IBS. It’s based on hypnotherapy which incorporates very soothing music and puts me in a tranquil state. It’s great for relaxation.
Hope everyone is having a great Monday, I’m in the midst of watching Gossip Girl. Love it! :D
