One Amazing Parfait

Last night I arrived home to a counter full of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, and I instantly knew they were going into today’s bowl of yogurt. Since I didn’t have time to run to the grocery store to get plain Greek yogurt (only 2 Weight Watcher plus points), I planned on using Light ‘n Fit Raspberry yogurt I had in the fridge at work.

This was one of the best homemade parfaits I’ve made recently. I’m not a big fan of flavored yogurts, except for Greek yogurt, but I wanted to add in a little granola and sunflower seeds so I had to use a low WW point yogurt.

And here’s my 4 point beauty!

Body of an Old Lady

 

This morning I woke up roughly 15 minutes before my alarm and boy were my legs aching! I contemplated resetting my alarm, thinking that my legs were too tight to carry me on a run, but the stubborn soul that I am woke up on time and went for a gnarly run.

My legs were a lot tighter this morning than they were the day immediately after boot camp. I’ve noticed a pattern that the morning after I use my foam roller on my quads and hamis, my legs are a lot tighter. Has anyone else had the same problem? Last night I was laying on the floor blogging while I had my thighs resting on my foam roller. You sneaky little thing!

Even though my legs were heavier today, this morning’s run was a lot easier than yesterdays, although I did manage to cover the same distance, just in a shorter time. I followed up my run with a lot of stretching and a few quick core exercises. The past week I’ve focused a lot more on my core, as I typically don’t give it enough attention.

Morning Workout

  • 3.1 mile run, with post-run stretching
  • 2 sets of 15, stair push-ups (4th stair down)
  • 2 sets of 50, crunches and side crunches
  • 25 reverse crunches
  • 2 sets of 13, standing side crunches with 8 lb dumbbells

This Little Man Didn’t Want Me to Go to Work This Morning

Usually I beat Jen and Nichole to work, but this morning Jen was early and we were able to walk in together. She gave me the responsibility of choosing if we’d sludge up the stairs or take the elevator. You bet I chose the elevator. You should have heard us croaking when we had to walk up the 3 measly stairs to the building’s entrance.

We might be feeling like old grannies, but we’re young at heart!

Dorks Unite at the Library

No tennis tonight! As much as I wanted to catch up and see Jenny, I was beyond ecstatic when she said she was exhausted, and we both happily agreed to reschedule tennis, as I’ve been walking around all evening like an old granny.

Since I couldn’t get into Seating Arrangements, the book I was attempting to read, I swung over to my favorite place in my town, the library. No joke either, I’m such a dork and I absolutely embrace it.

My Favorite Place in Hooksett. Dorks Unite!

 

New Hampshire really does have some amazing views, even from a small town library! It’s so easy to take things for granted that I love when I’m reminded of the beauty in things that some people just pass by.

Look at That View from the Library Gorgeous!

 

I came out big at the library. I’ve been on a FRIENDS kick lately, and since On Demand only had one episode, which I HAD to watch last night, I checked out the library’s DVD section and was pumped when I found Season 5. You betchya I snapped that sucker off the shelf! I then became intrigued by the cover and title off the thriller kiosk in the middle of the library. Can’t wait to read The Snowman, by Jo Nesbo. In fear of not being able to get into that book, I did what I typically do, and went in search for a 2nd book. Is it really nerdy that I have a game plan when I go to the library? Nahhh, I didn’t think so either. Girl is on a mission! I was so pumped when I came across The Newlyweds by Nell Freudenberger, a book that was recommended for “romance lovers” in my magazine.

Win, Win & Win

 

I can’t decide which book to read first. I might have to “eenie meenie miney mo” this debate.
