Rest assured that plenty of peanut butter fingers have been enjoyed as snacks and fuel while making other meals (namely dinner). Today, after an all-too-long hiatus, peanut butter returns to its rightful home!
Breakfast included two toasted whole wheat bagel thins, topped with peanut butter, nectarine slices and a sprinkle of nutmeg, a great substitute for cinnamon.
It’s amazing what a little dash of nutmeg did to this dish. Seasonings go a long way in taking a meal from good to great.
Breakfast was a great post-workout treat!
Today’s morning workout looked a lot like one of my all-time favorite interval workouts. I changed it up a bit and ended up completing this workout:
I followed it up with 20 minutes on the elliptical while reading the latest issue of Clean Eating magazine. I flagged a ton of recipes I’m dying to try.
I also want to add that I am really happy with my decision not to run the half marathon in March. I think my whole motivation for running the half was just to bust out of a workout rut. I figured training for a long race would motivate me and bring me out of my funk.
As it turns out, I just needed to get a little creative with my workouts. Interval training, plyometric exercises and even hip hop dancing have all helped me enjoy my workouts again. I love searching for new workouts to try and heading to the gym knowing I’m about to embark on a workout I’m excited to do is a great feeling. Hopefully this exercise mojo will continue!
