The last time I took a rest day was Sunday, the 6th. That's quite a few days in a row, not usually how I like to do it, but how it's worked out. Because of the NYRR YPC event Thursday night, I plan on taking Friday as my next rest day. Since that's still a few days off and I have Zumba tonight, I did an easier workout this morning. 40 minutes on the elliptical and strength training. It was a good workout and I think I'm going to do this on Zumba days. I still get my heart rate up (with little impact on my feet) and put more emphasis on strength (which I need), and then get a good cardio workout at night.
Breakfast is pretty simple. I've been using almond milk a lot lately (since I started consuming less dairy) but when I was at Trader Joe's on Saturday they were out of my usual Almond Breeze, so I had to try something different.
I couldn't compare the nutrition stats but I picked up what I thought was the best. Well, it has 30 extra calories and 9 extra grams of sugar. The fat is .5grams lower, but that's inconsequential to me. The taste is pretty good, but I definitely like the unsweetened original Almond Breeze better for my cereal. It's okay to try new things once in a while, but I hope to find the AB next time!
