I had a new cereal this week that I thought you should know about.
I thought it was going to be SUPER exotic with the almonds, pumpkin seeds, flakes, & clusters. In fact, I was still fooled after the first day, thinking that all the good stuff had sunk to the bottom of the box. Such an optimist. 3 days into it, I think it just has an underwhelming amount of goods. Mostly flakes. It’s still good, but I’ve been measuring out just a cup because I feel the calorie count is a little on the high side. Kevin got a banana flavor that I think is mostly just a repackaging of their old Banana Nut Crunch. But what am I to say? It worked on us!
Well, my workout energy has been low this week. I think I’m still on birthday/anniversary cake hangover!! Is that even possible!?!?! So I decided to try this experiment from One Fit Foodie. The general idea is that you choose a set a moves and perform As Many Rounds As Possible for the duration of the song.
Here’s what mine looked like… No need judge the music choices. I don’t really have music on my phone so I had to rely on Pandora. Otherwise there’d probably be some Enrique.
Loca - Shakira
It Girl – Jason Derulo
Waka, Waka - Shakira
- 10 froggers
- 10 step back lunge with single arm overhead hold (L)
- 10 step back lunge with single arm overhead hold (R)
Call Me Maybe
Not sure why I have that weird Bambi look, but I chose it over the smile for you guys.
I was surprised that I only made it through about 2 rounds per song. Even a bit less on the burpee broad jumps round!! It took a little planning — I scribbled out ideas while I was doing a little warm-up walk on the treadmill. I browsed through and found a bunch of the moves on the Nike Training Club app (FREE!!! AWESOME!!!).
Afterwards, I jogged it out and did a few random sprints.
I actually found some decent avocados so we’ve been enjoying them with little taco salads.
Here’s a nice idea I found while Kevin was being responsible and paying for our groceries:
That, my friends, is straight from Diabetic Living! But it’s a good idea, especially for people who really prefer not to drink water.
What’s your favorite workout music? I mostly listen to Pandora stations, but I should put music on my iPod because I’m a chronic skipper and the commercials cause treadmill rage!
Favorite cereal? I’m wishing for those PB Cheerios back in my life.
Healthiest cereal? We’ve been eating a lot more eggs & oatmeal lately because I’m not impressed with most cereals. But this week Kevin has been dragging me to work like a half hour earler — those are cereal days!!!
