Posts Tagged ‘fruit parfait’

After a few days (or weeks) of eating not the best my body has been screaming at me to fill it with nutritious food.  It’s common to fall off the wagon every once in a while or splurge every now and then but it is about getting back up and getting back on track that really counts. 

Today started with a fun sweat filled boot-camp class at 6am.  Class today involved three weight activities followed by a 1/4 mile run repeated about 5 times with different weight activities ranging from biceps to triceps to squats to my all time favorite burpies.

I had a Granola bar prior to class for some energy but forgot to take a photo at 5:30 am.  🙂

The rest of today’s eats were documented prior to pure enjoyment…

Fruit parfait (1 green apple, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1/4 cup blueberries)

It always amazes me how eating healthy can make you feel so good about yourself.  I have a run set for the morning so I have to head off to bed.  I’m a morning workout person…I feel that starting your day off on the right foot helps keep me motivated for the rest of the day.

Do you prefer to workout in the morning or night?
