Sunny Starbucks Afternoon

It’s a beautiful, sunny afternoon. I’m sitting in Starbucks drinking some fresh brewed decaf & eating a scrumptious dark chocolate square while attempting to do some reading on PR & the social web.

What could be better?

Oh… I know! It’d be much better if I didn’t have to go back to work in 30 minutes! 😦

Better get to reading… Sitting in front if this big window is distracting me! 😉

Question of the Afternoon:

Do you have a favorite lunch time “escape from the office”?

Fitness Fuel

Today flew by! I’m happy to be out of work & enjoying some coffee shop time before boot camp.

I’ve been thinking about pre-workout fuel. I want to be sure I’m eating enough throughout the day & the right things just prior to some intense boot camping.

I already had my yummy mid-morning meal of cottage cheese & Kashi Go Lean Crunch.

If you stir it up a bit it makes the kashi “less crunchy”. I’m sure my co-workers appreciate me taking the time to stir! 😉
Although I still feel like you can hear me crunching a mile away..

Lunch today was my left over stir-fry! I even have a bit left for tomorrow’s lunch. Gosh, I guess I can really stretch that stuff out. Talk about getting your $10 worth!

After eating lunch at my desk, I went to my dentist appointment then ran to Starbucks. That was a nice, relaxing part of the day. As I mentioned before, I just love the remodel they did…

A nice tall cup of decaf… Ahh…

Now I’m at Panera (don’t hate) just chilling before boot camp and BodyBlade.

Guess if I’m taking up a table, and using their wifi, I better actually buy something. Hmm… Darn, guess I’ll just have to get another coffee. Oh well…. 😉

Here lies my baggie of “energy burst” to consume before class…

… a little bit of Bear Naked Fit granola & some dried cherries. Hope it does the trick!

Question of the day:

What do you eat as fuel before your intense workout?
