Tie Dye Oatmeal and a Fake Workout

I’ll keep this short and sweet because I have some studying to do before my exam tomorrow.

I made tie-dye oatmeal yesterday and it was the bomb.com

Step 1.  Microwave 1/2 cup oats with enough water to cover the top for 1 minute

Step 2.  Add 1/2 cup liquid egg whites and stir

Step 3.  Microwave for another minute

Step 4.  Stir in 1 packet of stevia (I actually used the liquid vanilla stevia but whatever sweetener you like is fine)

Step 5.  Stir in a ton of frozen blueberries- not only will this color your entire bowl purple, but it will cool off your scalding hot oatmeal so you can inhale it faster 😉

Step 6.  Mix 2 TBS PB2 with just enough water to make it a bit runny

Step 7.  Pour PB mixture over oatmeal and enjoy :-)

After a long day at the hospital (we had a test review so it made the day go later than usual) I came home and was feeling SUPER lazy.

I did not want to work out at all.  I mustered up enough energy to walk a lousy 2 miles on an incline while studying.  Then I pretended like I was doing wall sits but in reality I only lasted about 2 minutes before I gave up.  And I realized there is no good way to take a picture of yourself doing a wall sit!



Now I need your help:

I need some ideas for quick workouts to do today while I’m studying!

Here are my thoughts:

1.  Walk on treadmill while studying

2.  Do this crossfit WOD:  100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats, run 1 mile

3.  Do some blogilates videos in between hours of studying

4.  Do a HIIT workout from my list of workouts

5.  Break up parts of Tina’s Bootcamp to do separately throughout the day
Any other ideas?  Ok, hope you all have a great day!!

    Hey girl! I’m not sure if this will help you out, but this is what I do… I combine 6 days of strength workouts into 3 days and do a little bit of cardio each day. Yeah, the workouts are longer, but then I have more time available on my off days. Which I think could be helpful to get so solid studying in, instead of here and there. I know you have a crazy schedule – just a suggestion! Good luck! :) ps trying the oats tomorrow!

    I found that taking a quick workout break during the studying often helps me retain what I learned. I study for 30-45 minutes and then do a 10-15 minutes clump of exercises like planks, supermans, and weights while I go over what I was just studying in my head.

    Fitnessista’s Tabata Thursdays! Only 4 minutes, but you can repeat them or spread them out throughout the day.

    These are all awesome comments!! Thanks for the tips! I just did the crossfit workout and I’ll probably try to do a few more things each hour until bedtime!
