Last night I practically had to plead with myself to set the alarm clock for 4 am, but I did it and when it went off today, I was glad that I did. Â It’s not always fun getting up in what seems to be the middle of the night, but it totally sets the pace for my week when I get my Monday morning workout in. Â Today’s Insanity workout was “Pure Cardio” and it was just that. Â Instead of having interval training where we do 4 exercises and take a 30 second break before going into the 2nd set, we just did about 15 exercises for 1 minute each back-to-back. Â It’s definitely hard, but so rewarding.
Stretching at the end of the workout is definitely my favorite part. Â My muscles definitely need it!
For breakfast, I wasn’t particularly craving anything, which is odd for me. Â I opted to go with oatmeal again because there is lots of nutrients in there that would re-fuel my body and get me through my 12 hour workday. Â I have work today at the training studio and then I’m off to clinic. Â At least Mondays are kinda like my Fridays though with Tuesdays being off! WOO HOO
In today’s oatmeal, I pretty much added every ingredient I had that would go with oatmeal. Â I don’t measure very well; I just kinda pour to my heart’s content.
3/4 cup Oats
1 tsp. Peanut Butter
Almond Milk to make it moist
Splenda Brown Sugar
Cinnamon (I use more than the average person)
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Somedays I feel like more P.B. and sometimes I feel like more brown-sugar and cinnamon… all depends on my mood:) Â Right now, I’m drinking my body weight in Lipton’s Diet Green Tea with Citrus. Â It has the caffeine that I like and also is so refreshing in the heat.
