Summer Berries

Hooray for the sweetness of summer berries!


Double hooray for them being on sale at the grocery store for the past month!

I’m a serious fruit fanatic and love almost every kind of fruit, but to me, berries are the best kinda fruit for mixin’.

This morning I used about 1/2 a pint of $2.50 blueberries in a yogurt bowl and topped the mixture with old fashioned oats.

Come See How Good I Look!

On the side I sipped on Barnie’s French vanilla coffee, which I snagged from my gym’s free stash. Gotta make the most of that membership. 😉


I slept like a rock last night. Aside from a random dream about Hulk Hogan (what???), I slept soundly.

When my alarm went off I was dead asleep. Thank goodness Ryan goes to the gym at the same time as me in the morning, because when he gets out of bed, it motivates me to get out of bed too.

As we were walking to the gym, I knew today would be a BodyPump-kinda day. I didn’t feel like putting myself through a quality workout so I figured I’d let the instructor do it for me. 🙂 Fifty minutes later, I was happy and sweaty.

Post ‘Pump, I did 25 minutes of light cardio o n the elliptical with Oxygen magazine. (To all of you Oxygen readers out there – don’t you think the cover model looks just like Kristin Davis??)

Question of the Day

  • What is your favorite kind of berry?

In my opinion, if a strawberry is perfectly ripe and super-sweet, there’s no better berry. 😀

Day of the Week Rankings

Good morning and happy Friday eve! 🙂

Yesterday Ryan and I were discussing how each day of the week feels. Here’s my rating (5 stars is the best):

  • Monday: **
  • Tuesday: *
  • Wednesday: ***
  • Thursday: ****
  • Friday: *****
  • Saturday: *****
  • Sunday: ****

Days of the Week

Yes, I actually ranked Tuesdays worse than Mondays… I always feel fresh on Mondays and then Tuesday is when the “blah” feeling kicks in. Thankfully it’s all up from there! 🙂

What is your favorite day of the week?

I am inclined to say Saturday, but honestly I’ve always loved Fridays. Even though I have to go to work, everyone is generally in a good mood and I love the excitement and anticipation of a fun weekend ahead.


Today’s cardio workout was a goodie!

I followed a 25 minute treadmill workout I clipped out of Oxygen Magazine a few months ago.

25 Minute Treadmill Training

I made a couple of modifications, like only bringing the incline down to one, not zero, and warming up/cooling down at a 4.0 pace rather than a 3.5 pace.

After the 25 minute treadmill fun, I walked for another 10 minutes on an incline before finishing up with 15 minutes on the elliptical.


Chocolate attack!

Chocolate Delight

Today my breakfast was a bowl of chocolate goodness:

Thursday's Breakfast

As Dale from Doug would say, “Yum, yum, eat ’em up!” Yes, I did just reference a classic Nickelodeon show. Doug was the best!
