So, you may remember me mentioning some blog “changes.” Well, don’t fret, it’s nothing major. I’ve decided to change the “format” of my blogging for a number of reasons:
- Evening workouts don’t “agree” with me
- Blogging during lunch has been working well
- My photos of oatmeal are getting boring
- I have had great success with morning workouts in the past
- Healthworks hooked me up with a free month pass!
With all of these factors converging at once, it makes sense for me to change how and when I blog. With my fancy-schmancy one-month membership to Healthworks and my goal to exercise consistently in the mornings once again, I have decided to combine my breakfast and lunch posts into one, instead of posting 2 separate posts for each meal. However, my morning post is my favorite post of the day (I’m not sure why… it just is!), so I might have a way to fit in both my morning workout at Healthworks and blog about breakfast. We’ll see if I can finagle it! 😉 So, no major changes in the blog– just a little something to keep you on your toes!
Workout + Breakfast
So, let me explain my one-month pass to Healthworks. As you know, I contribute twice per month to the Healthworks blog, Boston’s Women’s Wellness. As a thank you (I assume), the marketing department kindly gave me a gift certificate for a free one-month membership at any of the Healthworks locations! Obviously, I was psyched! You guys have heard me rave about HW many, many, many times on CNC in the past, but I just need to reiterate that it is still the best all-women’s gym in the area. Healthworks has the best facilities, best classes, best instructors, best staff, best programs and events… they’re just the BEST!
After my free month, I might just join HW again. I need to look at my finances to see if I can afford the membership! You get what you pay for when it comes to gym memberships! What’s the most you’d pay per month for a membership at a really nice healthclub?
After my workout, I headed to the office, where I ate breakfast at my desk while catching up with emails. Today’s breakfast was a mix of oats, wheatberries, ground flaxseed meal, pecans, pumpkin seeds, and a squirt of agave nectar for some added sweetness. I’m not going to lie, I missed my peanut butter this morning!
With an orange, iced coffee with soy milk from Starbucks, and H20 for rehydration…
Hooray! The Cafe Rojo Gato has outdoor seating! It’s the little things in life that make all of the difference, right? 😉 Warm weather (and everything that goes along with it) just makes me so happy! 😀 And, rumor has it that Boston might see close to the 80’s this weekend! That’s summer weather in my book!
Today’s lunch was a repeat from yesterday. I actually made three salads the other night: 1 for dinner and two for lunch this week. It so much easier when you have all of the ingredients ready to be chopped and tossed into a salad than doing it three separate times.
The rest of lunch included peanut butter Puffins mixed with chocolate chips, a very ripe banana, and a Sigg full of water.
