I totally remember now why I don’t usually buy cereal to keep around the house.
1. It all too often becomes an evening snack x 3.
2. It does not keep me full when I eat it for breakfast.
This morning I was running a little behind, as usual, so I grabbed some cinnamon puffins. You think I would be sick of these after I O.D.’ed on them last night. You would be wrong.
I threw in some homemade granola, half a banana, a few raspberries, and some skim milk and called it breakfast.
I think I crave cold stuff (like cereal) when I workout in the morning and don’t hydrate well. I need to remember to drink water during and after exercise to make sure I get all of my 60 oz. A smoothie with protein powder would have probably been a better option for lasting power.
Speaking of exercise, I had grand plans to do Level 1 of 30 Day Shred this morning. It turns out that when my computer won’t come on (due to a battery cord malfunction) it also will not spit out the DVD in its CD drive. I could have done half of another DVD, but decided to do my workout free style this morning.
Here’s what I did in about 30 minutes:
Static lunge with bicep curl x 15 on each leg (8 lbs.)
Deadlift with upright row x 20 (8 lbs.)
Pushups x 20 I do as many as I can (7-10) man-style, then the rest are lady-style
Squat with front raise x 20 (3 lbs.)
Balance squats x 20 on each leg
Sumo squat with lateral raise x 20 (3 lbs.)
Chair dips x 20
Kickbacks x 20 (5 lbs.)
Shoulder press x 20 (5 lbs.) I stand when i do this
Repeat each circuit 2X before moving onto the next
Side plank held 45 seconds on each side
20 reverse crunches
Did I mention that I think I broke our Bowflex weights when I tried to go up to 10 lbs.? Hopefully Brad can fix that. Sorry, hun.
