Sunday Snippets

It can be hard when the motivation isn't there. I think that's the true divide between someone like myself, who will exercise everyday for a week hardcore and then not see the inside of a gym for a month, and someone truly fit. I'm learning that regardless of the occasion just working up a sweat can be rewarding. Not only physically!

So, this morning I woke up and post-coffee had my pre-workout snack

Cinnamon Cherrios x 2

Apple slices with a smear of laughing cow (times like 10)

At the gym I did 20 moderately-intense minutes on the elliptical.
Followed with 10 minutes of stairmaster. I seriously love doing stairs but can only usuallymanage 10-20 minutes.
Finished with a 1.5 mile jog/run and stretching.

I came home and put this into the oven ;)

Just a bit of butter (or oil) and cinnamon. 350 degrees for 40 minutes (varies on size).


Has a delicious texture similar to sweet potato
Served with maple syrup and a splash of almond milk. *DROOL*

Lunch was a boca vegan pattie topped with cottage cheese. A side of veggies.
Also, while the butternut squash cooked I roasted some organic easter radishes:
They lose that bitter taste when you roast them. Perfect for salads or eat straight up.

It's a beautiful day. I'm glad I got out to enjoy it.

Going to make some coffee. Until later.

  1. I've been craving butternut squash all last week but haven't actually gone out to get one. After looking at your pictures, I'm definitely having butternut squash this week :)
