Happy Thursday everyone! Are we all glad tomorrow is Friday? It’s been a busy week here in Mommy RD’s house. A birthday party, the real birthday, a new car (more on that to come), hosting playgroup birthday party number 2, and of course trying to get some workouts in as well. Today’s boot camp class was killer. It was pretty much all HIIT, with a few pushups and lunges thrown in for our “rest.” One of the gals in class looked at her Bodybugg and exclaimed she had never burned as many calories in an hour before. I was glad I had started my morning with a big iced coffee to get me going.
My recent purchase of the Bodum French Press (thanks to hearing everyone rave about French pressed coffee both in blogs and in real life) has been wonderful for making iced coffee. Since it’s 110+ everyday, hot coffee hasn’t been appealing. With the French press, I can make strong coffee that works perfectly when poured over milk and ice. A little sweetner and a glass straw, and wallah! OK, well, it’s not that quick, but it is good!
I love the “layered” look, achieved by pouring the milk in first, then adding the coffee.
Since class was such a killer this morning I’ve been hungry all day. Off to replenish those calories. Maybe another piece of this…
We had so much cake leftover I’m pretty much eating my weight in cake everyday.
Do you eat extra when you’ve had a hard workout?
Since I’m not trying to lose weight, I make sure to refuel and also am a little more lax with extra indulgences.
