…woke up at 5:30 am to do this workout:

After a 5 minute warmup & some stretching, I did this circuit 3 times through, starting with 15 reps of each move, then 12, then 8.  I started with moderate weight and increased the weight as the reps decreased.  After I completed the strength moves, I hopped on the treadmill for 20 minutes of HIIT cardio intervals.  It’s the same HIIT cardio interval workout I posted here, only I ran on the treadmill instead of using the elliptical.

…post workout, felt satisfied that I worked off too many of these from the weekend:

By these I mean both the Harpoon Celtic Ale and the delicious cupcakes you see in the background.  Shannon seriously makes the best cupcakes and both her St. Patrick’s Day inspired Green Velvet and Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes definitely lived up to their standards.  Yes, I had one of each.  What of it?  For a full recap of the St. Patty’s fun on Saturday, you can click over to Shan’s post here.

…worked out of the Framingham office for the day.  

Not much else to report.  Breakfast was cottage cheese with cinnamon and blueberries, morning snack was a banana.  I won’t bore all of you with details from the cube.

…enjoyed these delicious leftovers for lunch:

The roasted peppercorn pasta salad was even tastier this time around than the last time I made it.  You can click over to this post for the recipe.  I also enjoyed an Oikos black cherry yogurt on the side, since I ate up all that feta garlic spinach you see in last night’s plate.  And carrots and hummus as a mid-afternoon snack.  And an apple.

…went to Target.

And with the help of coupons, saved $5.  That’s a total of $30 saved this week with the coupons + weekly specials used at Stop & Shop for groceries.  Score!

…made another batch of the quinoa I’ve been loving so much lately for dinner.

With kale, mushrooms, and sweet potatoes.  Recipe here!  Pumped for leftovers for lunch today.  I munched on some TLC crackers while making the meal though.  Anyone else have trouble with snacking while cooking?!

…started my homework for class on Thursday.

And that’s about it.  Thrilling?

What did you do yesterday?  Someone tell me their day was more exciting than mine?!  Back tonight after Two A Day Tuesday with this week’s Move of the Week post.

Have a great day.
