Faith Fitness and Laughter

I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest….

on December 17, 2011

I don’t know if you have ever seen the move Elf, but if you haven’t it’s a hoot.  🙂  I am probably the only person on the planet that doesn’t care for Will Ferrell, but this movie is hilarious!  “I’m singing!! I’m in a store and I’m singing!!!!”

Anywho….  I slept in until 8:00 this morning and frankly, could have slept longer.  When I did get up and get around I couldn’t decide what I wanted for breakfast because I hadn’t given it much thought, but finally went with some oats!

Not a very good picture………..still working on that…;)

In the oats:

1/3 cup of old fashion oats

1/4 cup of water

1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk

and a smidge of Silk Nog

Chia seeds


1/4-1/2 of tsp of Pumpkin Spice

1/2 tsp of Molasses

1 tbls of Peanut Butter


After my breakfast settled and I watched an episode of Person of Interest I mustered some energy to get my workout in.  Got a big night, so I knew I would have to get it in early in the day.

Ah yeah, this one kinda hurt.  The entire workout is 55 minutes long, but it’s broken down into 4 different sections with a warm-up and a cool-down.   The verdict?  I really did like it.  Let’s just say I was drenched with sweat by the end!

I wanted to keep lunch light, due to the whole grazing, ah I mean Progressive dinner that I will be attending tonight.  It starts in like 40 minutes!  agh!  So I settled on a smoothie.  In the smoothie:

1 frozen banana


4 frozen peaches

chia seeds


almond milk

and a slash of silk eggnog ( I can’t let that stuff ruin!)

blend it all up and it’s oh so good!

My first-born even seemed interested, or he was like, “mom what are you eating!?”

Well I’ve got to jet, but I will post some pictures of tonight’s feast!

Random question:

Ever hear of the show Brad Meltzer’s Decoded??   I’m obsessed.

And…  How do you feel about eating before you work out?
