A Cereal Kind of Day!

Good Morning!

Today was my last day of teaching Yoga to the soccer girls!  I thought it was last Thursday, but nope, I still had one more to do today.  They were not into it at all and I could tell they are just ready for summer break.    Although they may have been uninterested in the class today, I left feeling limber and relaxed 🙂 I did throw in a new pose, half moon, and they seemed to have fun trying it!

It looks like this:

Me + Half Moon Pose

Before Yoga class, I met my good ol’ friend Arc Trainer for a 30-minute cardio session

Me + Arc Trainer = Great Cardio Session!

*Note: These photos are a reenactment, not my actual workout 🙂 Although that is what I am wearing at work today!

After my workout, I headed back home to walk the pups (our usual 2 miles), shower, and chow down before heading back to the gym to work for the day.

Breakfast

Today was a cereal kind of day! Since my boyfriend, Andy, was in town for the weekend, I made sure to stock up on some more foods that he likes.  One of his favorite cereals is Honey Bunches of Oats. I have plenty of leftover cereal, so I added some to my beloved Kashi Heart to Heart cereal.

Kashi Heart to Heart + Cinnamon Bunches of Oats + Orginal Almond Milk + Strawberries

To drink I had a liter of water + black coffee.  I got some new coffee while shopping at Marshalls (I’m in love with this store!)

Coffee Cake Coffee!

This coffee smells absolutely heavenly! Definitely put a lil’ pep in my step as well!

Tuesday’s Lunch n’ Snacks

I packed up the ol’ lunch box with some yummy snacks and my lunch.  Today’s mid-morning snack will be vanilla greek yogurt, strawberries, and creamy almond butter

Greek Yogurt + Strawberries + Almond Butter = Delicious!

Lunch is an egg muffin sandwich with some veggies

My afternoon snack is some more almond butter!

Dinner tonight will be a repeat of last week: Chicken Pot Pie! It was so good I wanted to make it again. I have some chicken cooking in the crock pot as we speak!

**Questions**

What is your favorite type of nutbutter? I think mine has to be almond butter!

If you do Yoga, what is your favorite pose? I love downward dog, I feel the stretch throughout my entire body and it’s so relaxing!

  1. Almond butter wins my heart hands down! The coffee cake coffe looks so tasty!! I think I could start my day with that!

  2. work it girl! hehe. what a healthy afternoon snack too btw!

    i love downward dog too- stretches it all out and lengthens. XO ❤

  3. OMG I thought you were in my reader but you weren’t! No worries, you are there now 🙂

    I used to eat honey bunches of oats all the time when I was younger, it’s one of the family favorites!!

    I like childs pose because it stretches out my lower back and legs, meow.

    And my favorite nut butter is def peanut butter. Although I seriously LOVE all kinds (I have 5 nut butter open in my fridge right now, haha), PB has been with me my whole life and I couldn’t possibly turn my back now!! (I believe I had pb&j sammies every single day growing up for years. It’s not that my mom made me or something, I am a pb&j addict)

  4. I just can’t get ito almond butter! I don’t think it is sweet enough for me. I’m a peanut butter gal. 🙂

  5. Oh my goodness- you brought up my ULTIMATE downfall food- Honey Bunches of Oats!! (well one of a few ;)) I CANNOT keep those any where near me- I seriously will eat at least half the box without realizing it- I just keep pouring more & more into my cereal to ‘soak up the milk’- haha! More like to eat the WHOLE box 🙂
    My favorite type of nut butter is peanut butter, the only one I have tried 🙂
    And I don’t do yoga…although I will try it some day 🙂

  6. My favorite is almond butter for sure! But there is something to be said about sunflower seed butter when I’m getting cravings for something a little more savory…

    And I like a few of the warrior poses- I just zone and enjoy it!

  7. peanutbutterfingers

    honey bunches of oats is seriously one of my faaaavorites! my mom just bought me the “just bunches” variety of the cereal b/c i always pick them out! 🙂

  8. hey girlie! ahh Jasons fav cereal is honey hbunches of oats too! hebuys it at costco to make sure he ALWAYS has it in his house! its soooo good!!

    I should really do more yoga! that arc trainer is the best! I likeit so much more than the other elliptical machines

    favorite nut butter is PEANUThands down…or naturally more brand almond butter! BUT I havent tried the maranatha brand yet!

  9. Almond butter AND peanut butter run a close race in my book! I go in stages though. Sometimes I will ONLY want peanutbutter and the other times I will ONLY want almond butter! I am not a nut butter mixer either. Oh…don’t make me choose! haha! 🙂

  10. I haven’t tried any nutbutters aside from PB! I need to explore my other nutbutter options…hmmm…

  11. What good eats for the day girl! YUM! I used to be able to do half moon pose all day long… Not anymore! You reminded me I need to get back to yoga… My favorite has always been a wide forward bend. It just relaxes me the most.

  12. I really like cashew nut butter. Almond butter comes very close though. 🙂 I love it on oatcakes or in smoothies. Yum!
    I enjoy the whole sun salutation sequence. My favourite is probably downward dog as well.

  13. A fresh ground mix of roasted cashews and almonds. Yum! Had some this morning 🙂 Sometimes I’ll add in cocoa powder and cinnamon.

    I don’t do yoga anymore, but I used to love downward facing dog. Well, that and savasana after a nice long session of ashtanga.

  14. Almond and peanut butter put up a good match, I love maing the 2 together! My favorite yoga pose is plow. Once I get into that from a shoulder stand i’m all relaxed.

  15. I was about to ask who you have take pictures of you during a workout! LOL Makes more sense to take them after the fact. I have been really enjoying getting into yoga this past month. And I have to say downward dog is my favorite pose too…because of the stretch.

  16. mmm u got me wanting cereal girl!!!

  17. hey linds!

    my fave nutbutter has to be peanutbutter.. i have to have some everyday no matter what! lol…i’ve never tried almond butter but so many people seem to like it so i think i have to buy some next time!

    honey bunches of oats=amazing. have you seen the new one they came out with called just bunches .. good idea on their end because that’s the best part of the cereal 🙂

  18. I love love cereal. When I buy chocolate cheerios I practically have to force myself not to eat the whole box in a week. It’s so good with milk or just a handful of it dry. I’ve never done yoga before or any poses, but with all of my years of ballet training maybe I would be good at it?
