An apple a day keeps the hunger away!
So the girls trickled in and brought lots of goodies(not real healthy ones) for the spread of food. Pies, cucumber wraps, spinach dip, pasta salad, and cookies! I provided the drinks, apple cider, hot coco, and waters. The meeting was fun, and we all got to know each other a lot better individually. My leader asked us a fun question, "If you were a piece of fruit what would you be and why?". It took us all a bit to answer. I said I would be a tropical piece of fruit, because I love to travel to the tropics:)...lol...corney but I couldn't think of anything else. What would you be?
This morning I was up early for the first time in a while. I got up at 5am almost rolled over and went back to sleep but I didnt. I went to the Y to meet up with running buddy to do a spin class, but there wasn't one so we did the Bosu Boot Camp. It's an hour class that incorporated aerobic exercises with a interesting bosu ball, and weights. I totally dug the weights part. I always need to do more weights so I was excited about that part. The bosu ball is like an exercise ab ball cut in half, reminds me of those things that I used to pop up when I was a kid. Do you remember those? It was like a bouncy ball cut in half and you would push down the middle and it pop up. Ok anyways, you had to use it like a step. The aerobic part is like a step class and instead of using a step you use a bosu ball. I wasn't to good at balancing on it, maybe it just takes a lot of practice. Never the less I burned some calories and that is all worth it!
Got home and made a big bowl of Apple Cinnamon Oats.
Was inspired because of the Fall like day:)
- 1/2 cup of Oats
- 1/2 cup of vanilla hempmilk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 granny apple sliced up
- handful of flax seeds
- handful of walnuts
- brown sugar on top
- drizzle of honey
- a little vanilla
- a little granola plank
- spoonful of ZAP new Pb ( working on the review:))
With a shot of Monavie, some coffee for fuel, and some water for hydration.
I am trying to ween off of my CoffeeMate creamers, so today I bought some Vanilla Silk Creamer at the store on the way home, and it's pretty good:)
As you can see I am not much for measuring. I am kinda like Emerald when I cook, I just throw it in and say , "BAM!" lol.
When I got home yesterday I was pleasantly surprised with a box full of goodies from Zap, I have been dying to try there Pb. They are going to do a contest with me so stay tuned.
Today I have work, OMTL study, and then rest...debating if I should go to Kickboxing tonight...we shall see how I feel. Can't wait till FRIDAY! Getting pumped up for my TRI this weekend:)
What I get to do at work:) I love my students!
