hey guys! thank you SO MUCH for all of the opinions on the books yesterday! i don’t know yet which i’ll get (i’m leaning towards 168 hours and the kind diet), but i’ll definitely let you know and review them for you!
moving on…i had the BEST breakfast yesterday!
overnight oats in an almond butter jar. SO GOOD! i scraped that sucker clean.
i had a busy busy day at work and then i came home and continued being productive! 🙂 i got in a workout, prepped veggies for meals this week, and made a bomb smoothie.
the smoothie had a banana, almond milk, chocolate protein powder, a big handful of spinach, a dollop of peanut butter, and some ground flaxseed! then i decided it needed some crunch so i put some trail mix on top! (i’m out of granola. 😦 must make more!). i LOVE the flavors of banana, chocolate, and peanut butter together.
now, i have to tell you about one of my new favorite things.
lindsay had a giveaway on her blog last week for one of these reusable sandwich bags. the etsy seller, lizzy, also offered a discount to order our own, so i ordered one sandwich bag and two snacks bags for myself. and then i won the giveaway too! 🙂 now i have two snack bags and two sandwich bags to use for packing my lunches (and brightening my day)!
i used them for the first time yesterday (got them monday night!) and i loved them! first of all, how cute are these?
second, instead of throwing away 2 plastic zipper bags that i would have normally put my veggies and ginger snaps in, i can just rinse these out and use them again! cute AND good for the environment. it’s a win, win.
now, on to the big news. i know i totally gave it away the other day, but i’m doing a 30 day shred challenge with myself!
i bought the dvd this weekend at target for only $9! so, to make sure i get some good use out of it, i’m getting right down to it. starting on monday, feb. 14, i committed myself to do the 30 day shred every day for 30 days.
i am going to try to move up a level every 10 days, but if i don’t feel ready, i’ll stay where i am for an extra day or two. i took before photos and measurements and i can’t wait to see if i get some good results! i’ll share my results after 2 weeks and after the 30 days are up.
i’ve got to say, i was pretty pumped since it’s just a 20 minute workout, but it is NOT going to be easy! i did day 2 yesterday and i was so sore from the previous day. today i am REALLY feeling it! i never realized how weak my arms are. that’s what i’m having the hardest time with.
for those of you who have done with 30 day shred before, did you see good results? also, did you add in other workouts along with it?
i’m still going to try to get to the gym for a good run or arc trainer workout a couple times a week at least!
