This morning, I woke up and did my workout at the apartment. At first, I had planned on heading to the gym and just getting ready there, but since Brian is leaving for two weeks today (and it is our three year anniversary!) I thought that it would be nice if we ate breakfast together and spent a little time together this morning.
The workout was quick, but effective. Because I knew I had limited time, I used supersetting to maximize my time. To superset is to complete one exercise then immediately follow it with another exercise without having a rest inbetween. The two exercises work best if they don’t target the same muscle group. It is a great time-saver and adds a little extra challenge to a workout because of a shortened rest period.
My plans to make a weeks worth of baked oatmeal turned out perfectly! They were all ready to go this morning, and they tasted delicious.
Blueberry Baked Oats
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease ramekins or large muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined. Pour into 5 ramekins or muffin tins. Bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool, then refrigerate for use at a later date, or eat warm from the oven!

Because these little cakes are so filling and dense, I usually eat half before I workout and then half after 🙂
Yesterday, when Brian and I got home from our midday date, there was a little surprise waiting for me in the fridge. Brian’s mom had made me a salad with tuna and egg whites for lunch. She even packaged up some almonds for a snack! What a nice treat!
The salad was delicious and filling! Thanks Kate 😉
