Can you believe it’s the last Friday in January 2010 already? Sometimes I really feel like life is on “fast forward”…
To start off the day on the right foot here’s the daily Bible verse for you!:
“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” ~ Isaiah 40:31
Good verse for a Friday after a long week, huh?
I’m going to start by sharing my breakfast with ya’ll because it was totally EPIC. I got my Jayy Robb protein powder in the mail two days ago, and have been excited to use some since I opened the package.
Pina Colada Protein Shake♥
What better way to start a Friday than with a Pina Colada in the morning?! This was a combo of 1 pkg. Jay Robb Pina Colada Whey Protein + 1/2 C. Fiber Select + 1/2 banana + 4 ice cubes + 2/3 C. water [210 calories, 29g protein, 1g fat, 19g fiber]. Incase you were wondering, I’m in love with this man.
Now we can get back to what went down last night.
I’ll bet you can guess what I had for a snacky to fuel my bike riding obsession last night?!
Yep. You guessed it.
Then I hopped on the bike and got a nice workout in. I watched Monsters, Inc. and facebooked until it was time to shower and get ready for the little sister’s basketball game [burned 500 calories]. I feel like such a slacker sister when I miss her games. After all, she has been at almost all of mine!
Before leaving for the game, I finished off what was left of my fat free cottage cheese combined with some Tomato & Basil Marinara sauce:
- FF Cottage Cheese + Marinara = Healthy Lasagna
I swear it tastes exactly like lasagna. Not so photogenic, but very yummy. I was running short on time because the fam. wanted to leave by 6:45PM, since the game started at 7, and I had just gotten out of the shower at about 6:20PM. I grabbed some Miguel’s Honey Plantain Chips since I knew I wouldn’t have time to whip anything up.
They are SUCH a guilty pleasure. Perfectly sweetened. I munched on them while getting ready. I drank tons of calorie free flavored water at the game. Our Giant sells them by the liter, and I drink them ALLL the time. Key Lime is my fave.
Our team played great and beat the most competitive team in the league! I was really proud of my little She rocked the court.
Afterward, the family went to visit with my Godparents who are driving to Florida, as I’m posting this. Remember when they were down last time and I went to visit them soon after Thanksgiving? We wanted to see them before they left!
The family went to Pizza Delight since they were craving some post game pizza, while I conjured up by own little snackies at home. They ordered buffalo chicken pizza and a cheesesteak to share.

I passed and opted for my own post game munchies:
Steamfresh Sugar Snap Peas
[yep, the entire bag ]
- Dr. Mc Dougall’s Lentil Soup
The entire box of Dr. McDougall’s Lentil Soup. I was finally satisfied We hung out together for awhile until we all got sleepy. I fell asleep around 10:30 and slept like a babe.
Tonight’s agenda is still up in the air….I might be getting together with a friend, but I’m not sure what the plans consist of! All I know is, I’m glad it’s friday!
Have a goodie!
