Today was a different story. I wanted jelly. Real jelly!
Though I prefer strawberries and strawberry-flavored treats to grapes and grape-flavored goodies, I’ve always been a grape jelly kind of girl.
When our friend Ross came into town Wednesday night, he brought a jar of Polaner all fruit with fiber blueberry jelly with him. Though I think the company technically calls the jelly “spreadable fruit,” let’s be real and call it what it is. 😉
The blueberry goodness looked an awful lot like grape jelly which immediately intrigued me. Plus, I liked how the label said it was “sweetened only with fruit juice.”
After spreading one half of an Arnold sandwich thin with the blueberry spread and the other half with a heaping spoonful of peanut butter, I was ready to dig in!
Since a lil’ pb & j wouldn’t be enough to tide me over, I used a big spoonful of the blueberry jelly to sweeten up a cup of Chobani Greek yogurt to enjoy on the side.
I also enjoyed a tumbler full of free Barnie’s French vanilla coffee that I snagged from my gym this morning.
I love the slight hint of caramel in Barnie’s French vanilla coffee. It adds a hint of sweetness that I just adore.
This breakfast was a great way to refuel after a decent workout!
Today I took my usual Friday morning BodyPump class. We did an older release that included the song “Meet Her at the Love Parade” by DJ Aligator. I was really feelin’ that song! My shoulders were burnin’ while the music was blasting and I loved it!
I really do like strength training a lot more than cardio. I often find cardio monotonous and enjoy the muscle burn and the variety that comes with strength training. My former cardio queen self would be shocked by this statement! 🙂
Alright, kiddos, it’s time to work! See ya fo’ lunch!
Question of the Morning
Strawberry jelly or grape jelly… or a different kind altogether?
For me it’s grape all the way… though I was a total freak growing up and loved mint jelly on my pb & js. 🙂
