Making Adult Decisions

Today I realized with the help of a co-worker (Hi Janet!), that I need to end my hiatus of being lazy and starting posting again!  Sometimes life just gets a little hectic, and when it does blogging tends to take the back seat for me.  I hope you take no offense to that 🙂  Most of the time when I am not posting I am thinking of posting and wishing I had a device that could read my mind, edit, insert pictures, and post.  Wait, isn’t that something an assistant could do?  Any takers??  Anyway…

Today’s breakfast was something you have seen before with a little twist!

Over Night Oats!  Made with 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1 tblsp chunky peanut butter and cocoa powder, and enough milk to keep the oats floating.  I like the oats flaoting more than I do when they absorb all the liquid!  Using the cunky peanut butter was a good choice because it added a slight crunch in each bite.  Very filling!

I also had an iced coffee and a banana.

After school I headed straight to Verizon to (finally) get rid of my stupid Blackberry Storm.  I don’t know if any of you have ever had one of these, but I can tell you it is single-handedly the WORST phone ever!  I have already replaced the phone a zillion times for various reasons but Sunday, when I was unable to make and recieve calls, I knew it was time to give it the boot.

I did what any responsible adult would do: traded up to a white iphone!

I have waited so long to get my hands on an iphone and it was worth the wait to get the white one, haha.  And since I am a sucker for a deal I also got a hard case, car charger and protective covers for the screen.  I swear the customer service reps at Verizon see me coming from a mile away!!

Of course the first, and only, app I currently have is Facebook 🙂

For the last few weeks I have been diligently keeping up with my Avalon Crossfit routine.  I attend 4 to 5 classes a week and take a balance of the Avalon Crossfit classes and bootcamp classes.  The classes make me feel strong and I am starting to see some small changes in the muscles in my upper body (shoulders, triceps, back, etc).  I know that toning up isn’t something that happens over night so I need to just keep plugging away until I get there.

Luckily I LOVE being a part of a program like Avalon Crossfit.  It makes it really easy to enjoy  workout when you are pushing yourself and feeding off the energy of the instructors and other participants!  Last night I headed to class at 6:30.  The WOD was called “Tabata 5” where there were 5 exercises you did each for eight rounds, 20seconds on/10 seconds off.  Holy moley!

  • kettle bell swings (12kg)
  • push-ups (I did an odd assortment or real ones, knee ones, and chest to the ground ones)
  • ab mat sit-ups
  • air squats
  • mountain climbers (there were sooo hard!)
We also started the class with over head squats.  We did 5 sets of 5 and I was able to comfortably squat with a 45lb.  I didn’t really max myself out like I should have now that I look back at it.  In my defense, I was thinking about the WOD we would be completing after and I wanted to safe my energy for that!
Running is a story for another post so I will save it, save it!
I am snacking on a Go Lean chocolate peanut butter bar before I head to bootcamp.  It is my first time trying this kind of bar out.  It has a whole bunch of protein and 180 calories so I am hoping it will give me the energy I need to get through a hard workout!
Do you have an iphone/ipod/ipad/itouch?  WHat is your favorite app??
Later,
