double-date night!

I started my day with some juice!

Carrot Apple Celery – this has to be my favorite blend so far, because it’s all i’ve tried!¬† Maybe i’ll branch out next week. ūüôā

And, then more oatbran this morning!!¬† I’m really loving it, but sadly, I had the last of my bag today.

I bought this new local granola at Whole Foods yesterday, so I tried a little out on top of my oatbran with almond butter.

This granola is completely natural, 100% organic¬†and I love it!¬† We all love granola, but some of it just isn’t that great for you.¬† They add oils and preservatives and the list goes on and on.¬† I picked up the Maple Flavor (I love maple!!) and it is delicious!¬† Especially on top of my oatbran with maple almond butter! ūüôā

This granola only has the following list of ingredients:

  • Oats
  • Maple Syrup
  • Hazelnuts
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Walnuts
  • Vanilla
  • Sea Salt

Besides when I make my own granola, which I definitely prefer, I think this might be the next best thing!

Before my oats this morning, I hit up the gym for a 6 mile tempo run and some weights.

Tempo Run

  • Mile 1 @ 9:30 pace
  • Mile 2 @ 9:00 pace
  • Mile 3 @ 8:30 pace
  • Mile 4 @ 8:00 pace
  • Mile 5 @ 7:40 pace
  • Mile 6 @ 9:30 pace

Shoulders, Chest & Triceps (and some core)

  • Overhead press (3 sets of 12, 10 lb weights)
  • Triceps press (3 sets of 12, 10 lb weight)
  • Tricep Dips (3 sets of 12)
  • Crunches (3 sets of 15)
  • Front & Side Raises (3 sets of 10, 7.5 lb weights)
  • Tricep Kickbacks (3 sets of 12, 12.5 lb weights)
  • Reverse Crunches (3 sets of 15)
  • Chest Press (3 sets of 12, 12.5 lb weights)
  • Upright Row with dumbbells (3 sets of 12, 12.5lb weights)
  • Bent over Fly’s (3 sets of 12, 7.5 lb weights)
  • Bicycle Crunches (3 sets of 20)

I felt kind of weak today!  I think this first week of real weights is definitely helping me, but also making me more tired!  I just need to get in to a routine!

When I got home this afternoon, I had some yummy stuff on my doorstep to welcome me home!

Amy’s Soups – can’t wait to try the new Spanish Rice & Red Bean!¬† Normally, I don’t love soup in a can because of the high sodium, etc.¬† But, I do love Amy’s soups when I’m short on time.

POM Wonderful Juice!  Yum yum yum!!

Crofter’s Superfruit Jam!

I am psyched to try these products and report back to you guys!¬† Thanks so much Amy’s, POM and Crofter’s for letting me try your products!

Dinner tonight was out with some friends for a double-date!¬† We hit up Amhreins in Southie.¬† I forgot to snap photos (what can I say, I’m new at this blogging thing :)), but what I had was delicious!¬† A baby greens salad with tomatoes and a small plate of vegetable risotto!

Off to bed, we have a big weekend of skiing!
