My new favorite concoction? Green Goddess Proatmeal. I made my favorite creamy dreamy oats, threw it in the Magic Bullet, added 1/4 of a super ripe banana, a dash of almond milk (so it blends easier), and crammed the rest of it full of baby spinach (about 1 1/2 cups).
I'm dying to try different greens in there. Kale, anyone?
And it blows my mind, because you don't taste ANY of the earthy spinachy flavor.
A little oatmeal, some eggs, a little spinach. A perfect breakfast!
Have you tried my banana brownie protein bites yet? I topped one with my favorite crunchy peanut butter and died, it tasted so decadent.
Even my husband loves them. Winning.
Today is a rest day (thank goodness, I'm wiped this week). I went to IKEA this morning and enjoyed some breakfast and picked up a few things for the casa (frying pan, bedding, candles, etc).
I couldn't resist that cinnamon roll ... ;)
Since I was in the area ...
(who are we kidding, do we ever need an excuse to stop into Lululemon!?)
I found these super fantastic bright blue (my favorite color!) wunder under crops and a bright coral run speed short (my other favorite color!) and a sweet headband.
Like the cinnamon roll this morning wasn't enough. How about that bowl of delicious frozen goodness? Raspberries, Oreos, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Butterfinger, on dark chocolate frozen yogurt (sweeteend with Stevia!) Man, I know how to get my fat girl on!
Since I'm working in Buckhead this weekend, I signed up to try out a Blast 900 class tomorrow morning. ;) A friend of mine from CrossFit Midtown says it's a great workout! If a CrossFitter recommends it, hey, I'm willing to try it. I'm always willing to try something new and I love that "group" workout atmosphere (ahem, CrossFit ;)
From their website:
"BLAST900 is a fat shredding, muscle toning, personalized group exercise class in which people of every fitness level alternate between cardio on a treadmill and strength training on the floor, each working at their own pace to reach THEIR maximum effort. Our specific formula for creating our class structure is what guarantees each client THE ULTIMATE WORKOUT and will forever change how you look, feel and perform."
They call is Blast 900 because they say you literally blast 900 calories. Now, I think the whole calories burned thing is kind of a dorky way to go about measuring your workout and level of fitness, but I take it to mean it's a pretty intense class.
Have you heard of or tried a Blast900 class?
Are there any new classes or movements or fitness-y things that you've been wanting to try?
Do you prefer working out alone or with a group?
