EUREKA.

Posted on

Hallelujah, it’s Friday.

And here’s your Verse of the Day:

“For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him,”- Philippians 1:29

So, last night when I got home, I was a little bummed about the chill factor, but decided to go for a run anyhow.  It wasn’t exactly COLD, but it wasn’t nearly as gorgeous as it had been Wednesday!  I grabbed this little guy from Granola Gourmet (reviews to come!) for some fuel and headed outside:

Brownie Energy Bar!

 I actually only ate 1/2 the bar (75 calories) because Wednesday, I felt like I ate too much before I ran, which slowed me down a bit.  The five miles felt MUCH better.  I only stopped for a few minutes to talk to our family friend, Kimmie as she was driving by in her mini van! LOVE that girl. 

When I got home, I decided to experiment a little bit.  I wanted to pack my lunch, but I also needed to whip up some dinner.  I steamed a whole bag of these steamfresh veggies, california blend to be exact, and topped it with salt & pepper with mustard on the side for dippage

Prior to mustard dippage.

If anyone has had the privelage of winning or working with Progresso, they know what I mean when I say I LOVEEE the huge, blue mug that I have from them.  It’s so PERFECT.  Big enough for mixing, steaming, whatever! 

Anyway, as I was prepping my lunch for today I had a few handfuls of this addicting cereal:

Lunch today is some Quorn Chick’n Tenders with some coleslaw for crunch and all mixed in with some balsamic vinegar + sugar free honey homemade dressing. 

Asian Chicken Salad.

Along with this beastly salad, I packed a navel orange to enhance the asian flavors:

fruit!

To top off my dinner, I knew I needed some protein!  I decided to experiment a little bit and tried to make one of Janetha’s protein cakes with my BSN banana nut bread protein powder.  I failed miserably.  I don’t know what went wrong?  I used the correct amounts of everything???  The only thing I can think of is that maybe I didn’t mix it well enough before popping it into the microwave. 

Anyway, I had the whole house to myself last night, so I felt like a mad scientist in a lab.  I went to work with my Bella, in an effort to create a Strawberry Cheesecake GREEN MONSTER

EUREKA.  Seriously, you MUST try this recipe.

Strawberry Cheesecake Green Monster:

  • 1/2 C. Fat free cottage cheese
  • Handful spinach
  • 1 oz. Sugar Free Strawberry Torani syrup

IT’s SOOO easy, but so yummy. 

Grinch-like stache 🙂

Trust me on this one.  To die for.  After consumption, a bike ride on the stationary was taken worth 200 calories, and some ab work was done on my living room floor 🙂

On that note, HAPPY FRIDAY!  I’ve got lots of fun stuff planned for this weekend including family egg painting tonight at mi casa, a massage with my bestest tomorrow, a wine & movie night with Nic on Saturday, and softball fundraiser bingo with the troops on Sunday after church!
