Energy Bowl


Good morning! After getting home late last night and getting about 5 hours of sleep…a good high-energy breakfast was definitely on the agenda. In the ” bowl”:

  • banana oats
  • dark chocolate chips
  • blueberries
  • crunchy almond butter

Perfect start to my day…which, luckily, shouldn’t be terribly mentally demanding. I have a couple of meetings and plan to spend the rest of the day in “catch-up”, planning, and continuing education mode. My CDE (Certified Diabetes Educator) credential is set to be renewed next month…and I still have quite a few hours of continuing education to catch up on.

I had a couple of questions yesterday about my Rock Bottom class, which unfortunately, I didn’t end up getting to teach (but I’m so thankful I found someone to sub for me so I could be with Anthony and his family).Β  Rock Bottom is basically a 30-minute strength training class that focuses on legs, abs, and core. I like to do a variety of squats, Bosu squats, lunges, walking lunges, dead lifts, “fire-walkers”, and lots of different abs/corework. Great class- and I love that it is only a quick 30 minutes!

Can’t wait to catch up with all of you later today! Hope your Wednesday is great!

    I hope everything is going well for Anthony’s father….and that your breakfast gave you lots of energy for your day!

  6. What a scary thing! So happy to hear that Anthony’s father is doing okay. Also glad to hear that today shouldn’t be to taxing…it’s so hard to push through a work day after an emotionally draining night.

  7. sounds like an amazing breakfast

  10. Wait…so you’re a fitness instructor AND a nutritionist??? Aaah dream job right there for me πŸ˜€ That is a dreamy breakfast as well–chocolate, blueberries, banana, in an almond butter jar = YUM!
