Today I learned…

Verse of the Day:

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

– Hebrews 12:1

…that it’s okay to have muffins for breakfast.  Especially when they’re the kind made with Nutrition First Blueberry muffin mix.

1 scoop Vanilla Chai Amazing Grass (NEW! review to come), 1 C. unsweetened Almond Breeze, frozen banana slices, and spinach.

…that Vanilla Chai Amazing Grass will forever hold a special place in my heart.

…that at 60 calories per muffin with 3.5g each of protein and fiber, you can afford to eat TWO for brekkie.

…that it’s probably smart to pack ample amounts of snacks when you’re going to be on the go most of the day…

6 Blueberry Nutrition First muffins with sugar free black raspberry jam

…that taking advantage of your ENTIRE lunch break to savor each packed piece of yumminess from your lunch is always a good thing.

1 Morningstar Farms California Turk’y Burger atope cukes, tomato, avocado, with some cauliflower, carrots, and corn on the side (blueberry muffin for lunch dessert)

…that fueling up between work and class is a good thing, especially when you’ve got a tough workout planned.

…it’s also okay for that fuel to be made with chocolate.

it’s fun to show up all the guys in the gym with your fabulous workout.

  • 30 minutes Cross Ramp various resistance/slopes
  • 3 sets of 1 minute planks
  • 10 minute intervals on the dreadmill
  • 3 sets of 12 hanging obliques
  • 10 more minutes on the dreadmill
  • 3 sets of 25 “inandouts”
  • 5 minute dreadmill cool down

…that the showers at the gym are not nearly as sanitary as I once thought.

…that it’s not as much fun eating edamame, green beans, and light string cheese when you’re forced to do it quickly in your car between showering and class.

…that after class all I want is my bed and I really should invest in a Tempur Pedic.

…that two green monsters in one day makes for a pretty great day.

1 scoop Vanilla Chai Amazing Grass, some frozen banana, spinach, and unsweet almond breeze

…that the folks at Starbucks and Barney Butter are Godsends.

…that the best way to end one’s night is slurping up almond butter straight from the packet while watching a bunch of toolbags on the “Men Tell All” episode of the Bachelorette.

…that I couldn’t possibly be any more blessed than I already am.
