And We're Off

To a not so great start. The husband developed bubonic plague or some other flu-like illness during the evening, little daughter woke up a bunch of times during the night and 6 a.m. was a rude awakening for me since during this whole break, my lids could not be pried open before 7:30! Needless to say, coffee was a MUST this morning! I decided to try a fun recipe for Coffee Cocoa that Jenn from eating bender was kind enough to share. She has this many mornings and now I know why! It's delicious and a nice change from the straight up stuff! I used fat free half and half in mine since I had it on hand. Mmm and the coffee part did it's job for me. Along with my Coffee Cocoa, I had a BlueBran Vitatop. I never had this flavor Vitatop before, although I did have this in a Vitamuffin. No comparison, the Vitatops are so much better. More moist and just seem bigger than the muffin for some reason. Both are only 1 Point, which is a steal...

On a positive note, I did knock out my 35 minutes on the elliptical! I tried an interval workout on it by doing a 5 minute warm-up, then alternating slow and fast speed in 1 minute increments. I was inspired to do this after reading an article written by the fabulous MizFit. I bow down to her; so not worthy =) Now, I'm gonna do a little dumbell weight activity for 10 min. so that I can hit my 45 minute -a-day workout goal.

Have a great day!

What is this Coffee Cocoa you speak of??

Sharon said...

Nice job! And sorry to hear about the hectic morning/late night. But the vitatop looks splendid!

First of all, let me say that I love your blog. I read it every day and can totally relate to much of what you write. Thanks for sharing!
Second, I wanted to ask you for the recipe for the cofee cocoa. I read Eating Bender too but could never find the recipe for it. If you could share, that would be great.
