To begin my workout, I headed to the loft area of my gym to do some cardio circuits.
It was totally abandoned which I loved. I feel like a tool when I’m jumping around doing various exercises when the loft is packed. I welcomed the tranquility of the people-free space this morning.
I set up my little station and started sweatin’!
During the last two minutes of my time on the elliptical, a lil’ Dave Matthews popped up on my iPod… but not just any DMB song.
The song that blasted into my ears was “Say Goodbye,” my all-time favorite Dave song. (And yes, the clock on my iPod is totally screwy.) Though the song is about two friends who decide to spend one “special” night together (which isn’t my style), I still find it so pretty.
Gotta love starting the day with Dave!
Once the my morning workout was done, it was breakfast time! A smoothie was on the menu.
In the mix:
- 1 c. milk
- 8 frozen strawberries
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 2 large handfuls fresh spinach
- 3 ice cubes
- 1 scoop All the Whey cupcake batter protein powder
- 1/2 tsp. banana extract
- 2 pinches xanthan gum (for thickening)
I gulped this grotesque-looking, yet totally delicious, smoothie down in no time!
It’s in the 60s in Orlando today, so this cold drink was perfect after a sweaty workout.
Off to work!
