It’s back to the grindstone today. Thank goodness I still have a couple more weeks until class starts!
As usual, my mid-morning snack was homemade yogurt that I prepared with fruit last night. Yogurt mix-ins at the ready: 1/2 banana (1/4 mashed, 1/4 chopped), chopped small apple, cinnamon, cardamom, and vanilla extract:
I mixed the above into a cup of yogurt and divided the mixture between two one-cup tupperware containers. The containers had a bit of space at the top still, so I added some grapes and cherries:
Lunch was more turkey soup with an apple for dessert. For a mid-afternoon snack, I packed a snack baggie of green beans and baby carrots. Here it is stacked last night and ready to go to work (the mini-Luna is a back-up emergency snack, but I actually swapped it with two mini muffins post-photo):
As planned, I was back on my 5 am wake-up schedule for this morning’s workout: five-minute jog to the gym, 10 minutes of arms with free weights on an aerobics step, 30 minutes stairmaster, 10 minutes stretching/abs, and the five-minute jog home.
I had prepped this morning’s breakfast last night: a half cup of mom’s cooked grainmeal, topped with 1/4 chopped banana, the last five cherries, and 2/3 chopped apple. I put it in the fridge in an oven-safe bowl before I went to bed last night so that all I had to do was pop it in the oven for 30 minutes at 375 when I got back from the gym:
Topped with a half cup of yogurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon this morning:
Hope you’re having a good day!
