Triple Thursday

1. Yesterday was my first day of working out in 5 weeks. Decided to do yoga, running, and bootcamp throughout the day. Yoga was difficult, but I felt much more loose afterward and then today the pain set in. As far as running...I wish I could say it was , however it was more like this . In the 5 miles that Brian and I did, I had to stop and walk 6 times. We averaged around a 9:20 pace and I was huffing and puffing the whole time. After a week or so I'm hoping this dissipates. Bootcamp was okay, however  my knee decided that I had to leave early so I actually listened. (i'm learning here)

2. We had our biometrics today- it's official, I'm 5'10, not 5'11. Proud to say that this was my best testing yet in the 3 years I've been with my company- clean eating pays off. Tomorrow I will be posting my afterthoughts on Ultimate Reset, results, and what the plan is for now going forward.

3. Last night I was grocery shopping at Kroger and there was a HUGE clearance section due to remodeling. I found this precious gem and decided that it was definitely worth $1.69 to have as a treat. The most important question here is why have I never heard about this awesome combination???

Do you get biometrics done at your work? What do you dread on getting results back?
We do ours every winter. My bloodwork is always excellent, but I consistently fear stepping on the scale. First time I was happy to do so. 

What's your favorite cereal?
Cinammon Toast Crunch is one of my faves, which is why I was so excited about this one. Also can't turn down golden grahams, and reese puffs. Its a good thing I don't normally buy these or I'd be in a sugar coma. 


  1. Hope your pain goes away FAST and your breathing comes back soon! I've had the same problem with my breathing after taking a few weeks off of running.

  2. I've never seen that cereal before. Nice score:)

  3. 5 miles after taking 5 weeks off? i'd call that a win no matter what! my favorite cereal is frosted mini wheats

  4. ooh, i wish my company did that!! i stopped eating cereal several years ago. the "real" portion sizes weren't at all filling so i gave up. If i could eat it every day without calorie issues: frosted mini wheats, cinnamon toast crunch, cookie crisp, i could go on and on with sugary goodness.

  5. I would love to have the opportunity to have my biometrics done. My fear? The scale. It's just too easy for me to get caught up in that number if it doesn't say exactly what I think it should. I love Kashi cereals, Go Lean and Go Lean Crunch.

  6. I would love to have biometrics done. What great information. I'm with Jill on the scale issues, though.

    I love cereal. It's totally my treat. I try to limit the sugary stuff in my house, but there are boxes that mysteriously make it into my shopping cart occasionally.

  7. We can elect to be part of a wellness group that does testing once a year (I think). I did it for the first time this year and scored in the 90th percentile which was a nice morale boost since I was being really hard on myself prior for gaining a few pounds. Perspective is nice! My favorite cereal is Blueberry Muffin Frosted Mini Wheats and I always have a box. LOVE them and hey, fiber and fruit! ;) Nice job on the first day back - that is more than I would have attempted!

  8. You will be surprised how fast you will be back running. I took off over a month in December and the first week sucked, but then I was back to feeling normal. The speed takes a little longer, but at least I wasn't dying anymore :)

  9. And the best advice is to in his constitute, which did Dandy for construction his citation but leftfield you far slow.
