News and reviews

Hi everyone!

Let's get to the news first! I received a wonderful phone call from Seth this morning! He has made it to BAF which is the last stop before he leaves country! Yippeeeee! Have I mentioned lately that God is good?? Cuz He is!!! :) So yup, hopefully sometime next weekend I will be peeing my pants sitting at Monti fitness picking up my soldier! Life is good!

Ok, now onto my "reviews". I wanted to try something new for breakfast so when I saw this I was excited to give it a whirl!

It's similar to oatmeal as you heat it up in the microwave with water (or milk) and it has some impressive stats. Each packet contains 150 calories, 8 grams of protein, and 5 grams of fiber. Not too shabby. I paired mine this morning with blueberries, a cup of almond milk and water, and some chia seeds on top for the extra nutrition.

Pre stir...
Had a banana on the side as well. I definitely enjoyed this breakfast. It tasted nice n cinnamony which you know I like. The only downside was that I wish it kept me full a little longer. I ate around 7 and was pretty hungry by 10. Not horrible but not great either. I might just pair it with milk instead of water to get in the extra calories and protein. Give it a try if you're looking to try something new for breakfast!

Onto Lunch: Light Barley and chicken soup, Smuckers pb&J, and carrots!

The hot soup was a nice change up from my usual salad ;)
Today's exercise... consisted of a 3 mile run this morning with Shane (my first early morning run with the pupster!), 20 minutes on the elliptical, 15 minute hill work walk on TM, and training 2 clients back to back. We did a kick butt circuit that, if requested by you all, I'll post! Let me know if that's something you'd be interested in...

Now I leave you with these pics of Shane. His old Dad (my dad) requested them :)

Cute puppy, no??!!


  1. Shane is SO cute!! Good job with your workout today and YAYYY for Seth almost being back!! I'm excited for you!

  2. Your breakfast sounds delicious!! I would like for you to post the kick butt circuit, please!! :)

  3. Emily--We are also excited for both you and Seth. You are so right, God is Amazing!!! And Shane is adorable! I can imagine that your Dad really does miss having him around!
