By the title of this post you may have already guessed it- yes, I ran over a squirrel this morning 😦 I went to the gym on the earlier side and as I was driving there a squirrel ran across the road… I was hoping I had missed him but then I looked back to see the poor guy laying there. I felt awful. What a horrible and helpless feeling! It was a hard face the fact that I had just caused this little guy pain- I wish there was something I could’ve done! All I can do now is just pray for a better life for him up in squirrel heaven- one where he can freely dart across traffic-free roads and snack on acorns all day.
See, he’s happy (I’m still trying to get over actually hitting this little animal and make myself feel better)!
After quite a drive to the gym I completed 40 minutes on the stairmaster. I did the aerobic option on level 15- not gonna lie, I had to pause it quite a few times towards the end to catch my breath. That thing goes so fast sometimes! I followed the cardio up with the P90x ab series and some other ab moves of my own.
Since I had headed to the gym right when I woke up this morning I was super hungry by the time I got finished. Time for breakfast! Breakfast consisted of protein oatmeal and blueberries. The protein oatmeal was made with 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 cup of water, and 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (the brand I use is ProNos).
The trick I have learned is to microwave the oats and water for 2 minutes then add in the protein powder, stir it around and microwave for one more minute. You may have to add a tiny bit more water depending on the desired consistancy. Very filling and satisfying.
I’m off to finish up getting ready for the day and meet two old friends for lunch- enjoy you’re afternoon!
