Let The Chaos Begin!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on May 4, 2009


I was up and at ‘em this morning at the crack of dawn. My brother is here doing renos today and tomorrow so I had to be off the treadmill before the dust started to fly!

Since I was in a rush, I opted to have breakfast after my workout. Big mistake! I was really dwindling throughout my workout because my glycogen stores were low. Last night while we were watching 24, I walked on the treadmill for about 1 hour and then went straight to bed. So when I got up to workout this morning my stores were probably really depleted! I almost had to get off the treadmill and go eat!

Anyways I made it through, but I won’t be doing that again unless I feel especially energetic.

Workout stats:

  • Duration: 46 mins.
  • Incline: 15% (max), speed: 3.6 mph
  • Max heart rate: 163 bpm
  • Avg heart rate: 144 bpm
  • Feel the burn: 358 kcals

It was a great workout!! I was sweaty, sweaty, sweaty!

Then I rushed to shower and get ready. I finally had my breakfast around 9am and I was starving!!!


I started with a green monster:

  • 1 T raw almond butter
  • 3 organic kale leaves
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond breeze
  • flax
  • organic peppermint tea
  • 1/3 ripe banana

And then I had my new obsession- a Whole Wheat English Muffin!

Anyone recognize someone in the picture? ;)IMG_0479

I was a naughty girl yesterday at the supermarket!

I haven’t bought any almond butter for a LONG time. Maybe 4 months!?!?

Anyways, it was on sale $2 OFF!!! So I had to get some! A girl’s gotta live sometimes, right? :)


And oh my gawd was it ever good.


Now I am off to do a bunch of work stuff on the road today! I am also meeting with someone about marketing materials for GB. More on that later!

The next couple of days are going to be a bit mixed up, and here’s why:

  • Renos going on Monday/Tuesday
  • My MIL and DIL are staying here this week, starting this afternoon
  • Tomorrow night Eric and I are hosting dinner for our family to celebrate DIL’s birthday and mother’s day

This house is going to be a bit chaotic and I am trying to stay calm about the reno mess! I was mopping and scrubbing last night, and then I realized the floor is going to be a mess again today. So hard to keep up with!!

Enjoy your day!!! :D

I had my first green monster last night, and another for breakfast today!! LOVED it!!! I did spinach, strawberries, a frozen banana, light soy milk, and a little Jay Robb. SO GOOD!

hey, it’s Leah! :) enjoy your busy day! I’m surprised you didn’t smear almond butter on those raw chocolate chips cookies for breakfast :)

Hey Angie, just wondering if I could do a little bit of self-promotion here lol. It would be so kind if any of you could go vote for me I am in an online modeling contest that ends in 2 weeks and it would be great if you could support a fellow foodie/fitness freak :). Here is the link
http://www.diamanza.com/concoursdiamanza.php and my name is Anouare A.

Do you brew some of the tea or just put the tea leaves in? Curious, I like the idea of peppermint in my smoothie!

There is an organic cookie giveaway going on at my blog too. Not quite as virtuous as those yummy looking raw cookies you posted, but close ;)

Look at that almond butter dripping so seductively off the english muffin. ;) yummm! I need to make more asap! (Thus, I need to get more almonds asap!)

Hmm I have never tried almond butter but now I definitely have to, it looks so yummy. I’m SO happy I found your site…I’ll definitely come by every day…..


Bec May 4, 2009 at 2:00 pm

Christina May 4, 2009 at 2:47 pm

Jeez, I wouldn’t have even showered before I ate breakfast, you have great willpower. The week will be over and done before you know it.
