Deconstructed Grilled Banana Sandwich:
If you have not grilled a banana yet (just slice and place in a hot, greased pan for a few minutes), you are missing out! So much better than raw.
Not only was breakfast a superb way to kick-off Monday â€“ my coffee was great, too.
The Husband and I are making the switch to organic, fair trade coffee at home due to 1) pesticide concerns; 2) the environmental impact of conventional coffee farming; and 3) the social impact of fair trade. Itâ€™s only a few extra dollars at the store, but I really love my coffee and feel like this little change makes a big difference. And that So Delicious Hazelnut creamer is soooo delicious. :) Normally, I go for Half and Half, but this was just as good!
Arms and Abs Challenge
After two days of yoga this weekend, my arms are terribly sore. I realized last night that I lost a ton of upper-body strength during the last month or so of marathon training. And remember how much my abs hurt at the end of the marathon last weekend? Iâ€™m determined to get my strength backâ€¦ the fun way!
Since 2010 is drawing to a close, I thought a last-minute â€œEnd of the Year Resolutionâ€ was in order.
One Hundred Pushups and Two Hundred Sit-ups are two arms and abs strength training plans that last six weeks each. You do the workout three times a week. At the end of the program, youâ€™ll be able to do 100 pushups and 200 sit-ups in a row.
Iâ€™ve done the pushups plan before and got to about 35 pushups in a row before I fell off the bandwagon.
Todayâ€™s workout required that I do 15 pushups and 40 sit-ups. It was HAAAARD! But I survived. 🙂
Anyone else up for a 10-minute strength challenge in the mornings? I hate strength training, but I can handle this!
