Hi guys!  It’s Monday and really, isn’t that enough said?

I woke up at 7am this morning and got right to bidness.  That would be pouring some coffee.

Coffee

Today wasn’t a fantastic coffee day.  Not that it tasted bad just sort of maybe like I didn’t really want it and I was having it just because.  I did some stuffs and some other stuffs.  Then I finally convinced myself to do some strength moves.  According to my training schedule, Mondays are strength and stretch days.

I did lunges and squats holding 10lbs (2-5lb dumbbells).  I also did shoulder raises, bicep curls, and kickbacks with the weights.  I then did some calf raises on the stairs, two 30 second planks and called it a day!  Scott and I are going to do some yoga later this evening and that will be my stretch for the day.  I did do a small bit of stretching after the strength though for injury prevention.

After that I showered and finally had myself some breakfast.

apple, yogurt, and granola

As much as I love oats and oatbran, I must admit that I do really dig on apple + yogurt + granola.  It’s so good!  I also added a small amount of maple syrup for extra kicks.

Rocks and I headed out for a short walk around the block because it was balls hot outside.  Then I did a bit more things around the house including laundry and taking some business calls.  The excitment doesn’t stop! ;)

Scott mentioned he was hungry and I got lunch pulled together.  I wasn’t feeling the salad today but am still on the carb kick thanks to Pre-Queen Time and since I don’t really eat a ton of carbs I decided to just go with it.

crackers, carrots, cucumbers, and hummus

I don’t know why my smoothies have been coming out such a strange color lately but I assure you they are not gross tasting but fabbo!
