I Made It!

I officially survived my first ever personal training session at Spectrum Sports Performance this morning. Hoo-rah! It was challenging, creative, dynamic and oh-so-sweaty.

I woke up, grabbed my directions and hit the road to meet with my trainer for the morning, Rob.

Rob was super-friendly and immediately told me my friend Merri (who referred me to this place for my free one-day training session) instructed him to kick my boo-tay. Thanks a bunch, Mer! ;)

Apparently he took Merri’s instructions seriously because he took me through a cardio circuit/core workout that rocked the ol’ bod. The hour I was at the gym felt like 20 minutes because the workout was non-stop and fast-paced. No room for boredom!

We did everything from jump roping and bear crawls to box jumps and sprints. I was sweaty, challenged and LOVING it.

Though I absolutely adore my gym, this facility offers so much personal attention and designs workouts to specifically meet your individual goals. Unfortunately it also comes with a hefty price tag that this poor writer cannot afford at the moment, but I loved every minute of my workout there (even when I was cursing Rob in my mind for the pain I was experiencing). Spectrum Sports Performance = A+.

Breakfast

I earned a breakfast that will really stick to my ribs this morning and oatmeal seemed like the perfect post-workout meal.

Cake Batter Oats

Cake Batter Oats

My oatmeal totally hit the spot. I mixed half a cup of oats with a scoop of All the Whey cup cake batter protein powder. I love eating breakfasts when, as I’m eating, I’m thinking “This is so flippin’ delicious.” This was one of those meals. Maybe I was just extra hungry, I dunno.

I enjoyed a hot cup of Yogi Mayan cocoa spice tea along with my oats and am sittin’ here with a warm and full belly.

Happy Friday Eve everyone!

      It’s really, really good! It’s nice & thick. I was skeptical at first, but now I am a big fan. I feel like it adds volume, thickness and flavor. Be sure to use a protein powder you like, though.

    First of all-I love personal training session, but agree they are so darn expensive! I just hate that. Second-your oats sound delicious. What protein powder do you use? I’ve never really used protein powder and don’t know much about it. do you use it often and find it helps? When do you use it? And I feel like I need to explore the tea isle because that tea sounds great!

      I use All the Whey brand protein powder. It’s so delicious! My favorite flavors are peanut butter cup and cupcake batter. AMAZING. I don’t really like protein shakes and I typically use the powders in recipes (like protein pancakes!) or stir a scoop into oatmeal. It’s a great way to add some protein into your meals. You can buy it online at allthewhey.com or nutraplanet.com (I usually use nutraplanet.com b/c they have a lot more sales & offer more flavors).
