Step by step

I tried to step it up this morning at the gym with my arm weights on the step + Stairmaster routine (thanks for all your suggestions last week!) by increasing the weights and switching from the “fat burner” to the “speed intervals” setting. It worked a little bit, but I think I need to up the Stairmaster level even more next time. Stats: 1 hour and 11 minutes, 378 calories, average heart rate 120, max 151.

My breakfast titles are getting longer and longer. Today, I had peanut butter chocolate strawberry cheesecake ice cream oatmeal:


Along with 3/4 cup of the oatmeal mxture and the usual crumbled graham sticks and 1/3 cup cream cheese icing, I added 1 tsp peanut butter and one chopped square of the Lindt chocolate hazelnut bar I got from blogger secret cupid πŸ™‚


I obviously don’t need to tell you how good it tasted.

On the side I had 1/2 an orange and soymilky black tea (very soymilky — probably 1/2 cup because there was more left in the carton than I expected):


Lunch and snacks today should be nearly identical to what I ate yesterday, but I’ll be back tonight with an update, as usual. In the meantime, go enter the BSI!

Happy Wed-nes-day!

      Haha, good catch Heather! The base of the oatmeal was actually leftovers from the mixture I used to make strawberry cheesecake ice cream last weekend … just not in its frozen form since I wanted hot oatmeal and all πŸ™‚

    Great job switching it up at the gym, that is something I really have to do as well.
    Your oatmeal ideas are always so creative and delicious looking I need to take a lesson from you and start trying new combos!
    Happy Wednesday to you as well, we’re 1/2 way to the weekend!

    I’m totally loving the gorgeous oatmeal in the TRANSPARENT bowl. How ingenious!!! πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for that awesome advice on food photography. It’s kinda nice to know that people even let you sample from their plates too! hahaha That’s really funny.

    The pix of your kitty mug with the bowls of food, backlit by the window, looks amazing! Did you take it on your bed? This is mid week of my vacation and it is so great to be responsible only to myself for awhile. I haven’t read in bed , but I did soak my hands in warm oil and water-soooo relaxing! Have to try that pumpkin kibbe thing? Did you get the pix of the oat treats we emailed? Love,Mom
