The vibrant colors simply call to me… “Eat me. Eat me.”
Of course, I always oblige. 😉
For breakfast this morning I enjoyed a cup of fruit salad that included one large Pink Lady apple and lots of freshly sliced strawberries.
I planned to stir some of the fruit into my Greek yogurt, but I ended up eating it on its own. It was just too tasty!
The crisp, coolness of the fruit was the perfect post-workout breakfast.
Do you ever have those days at the gym where your workout feels unusually difficult? That was my workout today! I didn’t do anything particularly challenging, but I felt like my legs were as heavy as rocks!
Today’s cardio included:
- 5 min. incline walking
- 10 min. stair master
- 10 min. elliptical
- 10 min. arc trainer
- 15 min. run outside with Sadie
The weather in Florida is warmin’ up! This makes me very happy because I should be able to enjoy more outdoor morning runs again without freezing my patootie off.
Belly Bulge Blunders
Are you constantly scrutinizing your lil’ muffin top or a softer belly?
First, embrace your pretty figure because you’re likely much harder on yourself than anyone else.
Second, check out the list that FitSugar compiled of reasons many people carry a little extra belly fat. A little change here and there can make a big difference!
Five Reasons You May Have Belly Fat:
- You’re doing crunches, not cardio.
- Your cardio isn’t intense enough.
- You’re skipping breakfast.
- You follow the three-meals-a-day rule.
- You’re kicking back more than a few alcoholic drinks.
Do any of these apply to you?
I think the one I fall victim to the most is number two. I do cardio, but I naturally gravitate toward steady-state cardio, which doesn’t challenge me as much as interval training.
