Taking my breakfast to work with me is something I do everyday. Today was a typical breakfast, Chobani pineapple yogurt with Kashi Berry Blossoms cereal sprinkled with chia and hemp seeds. It’s a favorite of mine and I do eat it often. I also had a sliced apple that I munched on throughout the morning.

My lunch was fresh and crunchy. I had sliced cucumber, hummus, and sprout’s on a whole wheat pita.

Working longer hours than I am use to has really showed me how easy I normally have it fitting in my daily workouts. When I get out of work at my usual quitting time I have plenty of time to get home, workout and get dinner ready. Then I always have quality time to spend with my husband and my fury little boys.

So I plan on Finding Time and Using It to do an office/desk type exercise.  So today on my lunch break, I  tried this workout. I had the office to myself so that allowed me to complete this with no interruption. People do come in and out my office through out the day, but It’s usually quiet around lunch time. I got lucky today, no one came in. So now when I get home from work tonight I can get right on my treadmill workout.

I found this at http://www.enjoyyourhealthylife.com/2012/01/09/no-equipment-needed-workout/

I have been eating the same breakfast and lunches for a couple of weeks now, I purchased a bunch of  Chobani yogurt containers and little hummus containers while they were on sale and I have a limited amount of time to use them before the expiration date.  I enjoy these foods so the repetition is not a problem for me, but I normally do like to mix things up so I make sure I’m getting enough protein and vitamins in my meals. Fueling my body and mind are what I try to do when planning meals.

My treadmill workout today was a 60 minute walk. I needed a good stretch that only walking provides me. My hamstrings have been so tight lately. I think it’s from the toe touches in the Lean Leg Pyramid circuit. I try to stretch out the best I can prior to any workout, but have still found myself really sore 2 and 3 days after doing this leg workout. I’m going to omit the toe touches next time the workout. I want to see if I still feel sore. I think I need to concentrate on doing better stretches. I normally don’t get sore so it has to be from not stretching enough.

One thing that drives me crazy when I work out is all this hair I have, so I always tie it up and get it off my neck and shoulders.

Tonight I’m making Roasted Brussels Sprouts to have with the leftover Tofu Spinach Lasagna I made yesterday. I also had enough filling leftover from the crock pot chicken tacos to make one for my husband and one for me, so it ended up being leftover Tuesday here tonight.

Roasting brussel sprouts is so easy, trimmed and sliced in half, toss with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and salt and pepper, bake on 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

I think I’m gonna relax and watch CSI Miami. I love me some Horatio. Have a good night.

Question of the day: Do you ever get tired of eating the same breakfast?
