Busy LIttle Bee

This morning started out a little different, than normal. Instead of my old cereal, I had a breakfast cookie. It was full of yummy things like: Kashi cereal, dry cherries, nuts and so much more. It was so filling. Kelli at Kelli's Cookies was so kind to give me these cookies. I can't believe how full I was. It was still moist inside. It was prefect. I couldn't believe that I was actually having a cookie for breakfast, but it was so worth it. I never felt guilty, or anything. It did have cereal inside.

You can actually pronounce everything inside the cookie. That doesn't happen often enough.

The rest of my afternoon was pretty standard. The gym, was pretty empty and I was able to fly through my short workout. I was there was 40 minutes and worked up a very thin layer of sweat. It was a decent workout. I just had so much going on at work (before the gym) and so much going on after I left.
When I got home, I unloaded my car and made a very simple dinner. I poured myself on bowl of cereal. I mixed it today. I had 3/4 bowl full of multi grain Cheerios and 1/4 full of Uncle Sam's cereal. It was a pretty good combo.

The Uncle Sam cereal is pretty tasty. The cereal itself is pretty tiny (the shape of coco crispies). The flavor is so good. You can taste how good it is for you. Before you pour the cereal, you have to shake it up to get the flax seed in every bite. Can't wait to have this combo in the morning.

Dessert was another new item. I had some Voskos Greek yogurt. I only ate 1/3 of the container (because of calories). It has about 290 calories per container, so that's a little high for me. I added a handful of the Uncle Sam cereal, a handful of dries rolled oats and just a hair of PB. I mixed everything together. It was pretty good!
The yogurt had a different taste to it. It's texture reminded me of sour cream. The flavor I had was honey, and it went perfectly with all the other flavors in the bowl. Yummy!! I see this mixture in my dessert future for tomorrow.

After wearing my compression socks for about 1 hour yesterday, my legs feel Ike I haven't ran in about 2 days. They are very relaxed and loose. I am definitely going to be making these a priority whenever I run. These are the best things that have happened to me in a long time!

Do you have any "short" days at the gym? If so, how long is your "short" day?


  1. as far as the greek yogurt goes. . . i am addicted to the chobani 0%fat plain greek and then i add fruit and granola to it! this morning i had oats and raisins in it. so good!

  2. i love that uncle sam cereal!!! my short days are usually only 30 minutes of cardio...just to get some movement in!

  3. I love Greek yogurt too but totally agree that it is higher in calories:) How come everything that tastes so good has to be higher in calories?:)

    Compression socks are on my list of things to purchase. I have heard so many good things about them. I need to purchase a pair soon....they will be great for after my longer runs. I hope that you are having a great week!

  4. That breakfast cookie sounds amazing!
