Candy for Breakfast

Short post tonight! I actually wasn’t going to post at all – but turns out I have something to share! :)

I’m continuing my Halloween celebrations early by adding candy to my breakfast cookie today.

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 scoop chocolate whey powder
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • shredded coconut
  • splash almond milk
  • M&Ms

Oh gosh, this was soooo good! I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a little candy for breakfast sometimes ;)

After work I had another one of my favourite weekend afternoon gym sessions. It’s always so laid back at the gym on weekends. I tried out the “20-minute Treadmill Hill Workout from Fitness Magazine. It was alright, a little too easy for me, I had to pump up the running part a bit to work up a sweat.

After the treadmill, I did 10 minutes upper body, 10 minutes HIIT on the stepmill, 10 minutes abs and 15 minutes HIIT on the elliptical. Phew! Good times :)

Afterwards, I got gussied up and Chris and I went to dinner. We’re growing bored of the options in Fredericton, so we went to a spot neither of us have really been to – Ringo’s Steakhouse & Grill.

Just the usual grill-type fare. They had rotisserie chicken, which I loooove, so it caught my eye immediately.

I went for the 1/4 chicken dinner with white meat and a greek side salad.

I didn’t eat the roll and took the skin off my chicken. Otherwise, everything was delicious!!

Chris got, what else, steak.

Look at those perfect grill lines! It almost looks fake…

Now if you’re looking for more, head on over to The Fit Bride! I did a guest post on my first triathlon experience.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the Great White North. I’ve got the whoooole day off. Have a 9 mile run and a turkey dinner at Chris’ parents planned. See ya tomorrow!
