Verse of the Day:
“Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.”
– 1 Chronicles 29:11
It’s been a little rough this morning so far. You’d think things would be running smoothly since it’s FRIDAY. Last night was picturesque and it all started here
Optimum Nutrition Cookies N’ Cream + water & ice poured over Fiber One.
Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day. And my favorite, to be honest.
By the time I got to work, I was ready to chug my iced Caftea Campfire S’mores coffee which tastes absolutely indulgent. Cookies N’ Cream & S’mores all before 10AM? I think I will, thanks 🙂
SPEAKING of s’mores…anyone remember my famous “indoor s’mores?!”
Welllll starting Monday, check out MY SHOP, where Garlic Gold is having a special Father’s Day promotion through June 20th. With each purchase of these little gems, you’ll get a free batch of my homemade indoor s’mores! Also, accompanying the bundle, will be TWO of my favorite Garlic Gold recipes!
Come lunch time, I was ready to dig into my Easy Lunch Box.
Cucumber fries, snap peas, cherry tomato, baby carrots, lettuce, & sliced yellow pepper with homemade honey mustard for dippage. Sonoma Jack’s Light Cheese wedge + Light Flat Out & FF cottage cheese for protein.
At my desk I made little veggie lettuce wraps. I like to eat everything seperately though, instead of just making a big salad.
The afternoon pretty much flew by and before I knew it I was home changing into my workout clothes, which means……YEP. You guessed it. Workout fuel 🙂
Like I said, I’m into utilizing the gorgeous summer fruits these days. I added a packet of splenda to some Oikos & topped it with some freckly guys, which made me feel right at home 😀
To accompany my yogurt, I wanted some carbs for my workout so I tried out some of these tasty little mounds
that I received in the mail! (REVIEWS to come)
To the gym I went!While I ellipticized, I wanted to watch my beloved “King of Queens” on the gym TVS, but now that Comcast requires cable boxes, the TVS were all messed up. Ipod nano to the rescue! I watched “Made of Honor” on my tiny little screen for about 45 minutes and then switched to the other half of my workout. After the machines & strength training, I hit the elliptical for another 20 minutes. I think I’m going to do that from now on! Breaking up the cardio like that gives me more energy & prevents it from getting tedious!
When I got home I definitely had veggies on the brain. I was thinking stirfry, so I went at it from all angles…fresh & frozen veggies were used.
There was a plethora of variety. Mushroom, broccoli, peppers (green, yellow, & red!), green beans, carrots, onion, snap peas, and cauliflower. I think that covers it? I made a sauce out of 1/8C. SF syrup & 1 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce, saving 1/2 the mixture to top it off after cooking.
Another gift from Marlin! 🙂 I’m pretty sure it used to be a flower pot or something though. You can bet I was impatient and burnt my tongue on this too.
Along with my veggies I knew I needed protein & carbs to rebuild the muscle from my workout so I did what any foodie would do…chocolate & yogurt!
You know you’re having a good day when Oikos shows up twice 😉
I packed lunch, cleaned up, & showered. Then sat down to relax around 8PM. 57 Dresses was on TV, so I watched that while I Facebooked a bit.
Anyone else got a strange infatuation with James Marsden? Personally, I think he’s adorableeee. Those blue eyes, dark hair & great bone structure are pretty alluring.
After awhile, I got pretty thirsty and have been loving what the spinachy drinks are doing for my hair & nails.
Please ignore the funny shaped fingers and focus on the lengthy, natural nails! Ha.
So I whipped up a green monster from frozen spinach, some mushy strawberries that I saved, Diet V8, & some Diet green tea.
It’ s feel free Friday! So, feel free to ask me anything!
1. What is your dessert of choice? I can’t choose just one! I love frozen grapes, protein ice cream, chocolate vitatops, & banana soft serve!
2. What’s one food that you can SEE affects your body? Mine is spinach, for sure!
