Slowly coming back

I'm slowly but surely getting back on track!
Last night I had a small plate of leftovers for my 'dinner' and honestly didn't feel so great after. Maybe it was just a bit too much for one day!

This morning I woke up early as usual on Fridays and headed to the Y for a great workout- 35 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes of arm strength. I felt great, and it felt awesome to get in such a good workout after all my recent indulgences! The only disappoint was when I was on my way to the gym and realized I forgot my new HR monitor! Oh no! I can't wait until I can use it next week!

Back home I made myself a spectacular bowl of oats! I used 1/2 cup 5-grain cereal (officially my FAVORITE- way better than reg oats!) with 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup low fat soy milk. I stirred in 1 tbsp PB, a sliced banana and the BEST part of the bowl... a bit dollop of my dad's fabulous cinnamon cranberry sauce! Ohmigossshhhh was this fantastic! I can't wait to have another bowl tomorrow morning =)

Today my mom and I have plans to head to Border's to use a gift card and Whole Foods to use (some... hopefully!) of my gift card as well! Two of my favorite places to shop- food and books! We'll probably have lunch at W.F. because really... I can never resist! I'll do a recap later!

Have a great day-after-christmas, and happy holidays if you're still celebrating!
