Hope your week is going swell and dandy. I gotta double dose of blogging for ya today. One sweet treat, and an as$-kickin' workout, literally.
I tried this recipe with oats with "eh" results, but these came out pretty tasty. How would you like to have cookies & cream fo' yo' breakfast?!
I thought so. My only 'ish with this one is the chocolate grahams. The just weren't that "chocolately." That's what I get for store brand. Pff. But either way this bowl is a mighty fine way to start the day. If chocolate sweet goodness is your kinda thing.
Cookies & Cream Shredded Wheat Bowl
1 cup shredded wheat, unfrosted
2 sheets chocolate graham crackers, crushed
1/3 c plain low-fat yogurt
1/2 c milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp stevia (or sweetener of choice)
Add shredded wheat and 3/4 of the chocolate grahams to a bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir until fully combined.
Top with the remaining chocolate grahams, and inhale delightfully.
Now you can use the frosted shredded wheat if you prefer, which I'm sure would be nothing less than awesome. I just suggest to ex-nay the extra sweetener. I'm sure you're sweet enough ; )
And after you're doped up on a hearty bowl of COOOOO-kies and cream, it's time to kick it. *Cue Ice, Ice, Baby please.
Imma call this Butts N' Guts cuz I'm cool like that and it sums up what this workout entails. It's a circuit workout based off Jillian Michael's 30-Day Shred concept of 3 minutes strength, 2 minutes cardio, and 1 minute abs for a 20 minute non-stop as$ kicking. How fitting. Here it goes:

1 minute Jumping Jacks
30 seconds each side hydrants
1 minute each side donkey kicks
30 seconds rotating jump squats
30 seconds skaters X2
1 minute rocking plank
