Ab Workout

August 1st?! Can you believe that it’s August 1st already? Rabbit, rabbit :)  The summer has just been flying by, and now it’s almost over.

August will be a busy month – we’re going to the Dells later this month, the kids and I have a few doctor appointments lined up, the kids go back to school…I was supposed to run two races, but now I’m not :( Oh well, I’ll just find other stuff to keep me busy.

Here’s a few of my favorite posts from July:


Breakfast this morning was a fun twist on my usual hot oatmeal or overnight oats. I cooked oats with water and almond milk. To the top of the oats I added plain Greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey for sweetness, strawberries, and almonds.


It was delicious! This will definitely be on my breakfast rotation. The hot oatmeal and the cold creamy yogurt was the perfect combo!


I went to the gym this morning to do an ab workout.

Here’s the workout I did:

After completing the first set of bicycle crunches, I realized they probably weren’t the greatest for my hip, so I omitted them the second time through.

I finished up with the quad stretch from my physical therapist.


Lunch was pretty simple today – egg whites, carrots sticks, and an English muffin with almond butter.


The Jif almond butter is just okay. It’s no secret that I prefer peanut butter to almond butter but I’ve had almond butters that I like better than the Jif. It’s funny that I love peanut butter so much because peanuts are my least favorite nut. Almonds and cashews are my favorite nuts but I’m not a huge fan of almond butter.

After lunch, we went to pick up my niece. Isn’t it so adorable that she won’t leave the house without her purse?!


Happy anniversary to my brother and sister in law today!


Have a great afternoon!
