I hope your day is off to a good start and that your weekend holds some fun and relaxing plans!
Today’s workout focused on cardio and core. I started my workout with 20 minutes on the elliptical before I hopped off and completed the following super sweaty ab circuit workout:
It alternated heart rate-rising cardio exercises with abdominal exercises for a circuit workout that left me with a burning core and a sweaty face.
A quality workout must be followed by a quality breakfast and today’s morning meal fit the bill.
I made myself a bowl of uncooked old fashioned oatmeal (it’s hot outside and I actually like uncooked oatmeal), topped with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, crushed almonds, a spoonful of almond butter and a drizzle of honey. (I really wished I had some of my homemade almond butter granola on hand to add!)
I wasn’t sure how the almond butter would do in a cold bowl of oats, but it added a lot of flavor once I smashed it into the oats with my spoon and stirred everything up.
Cold and satisfying. Perfect for a hot July morning!
See ya for lunch!
