Verse of the Day:
“All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.”
– Psalm 119:160
Breakfast may look a touch on the bland side, but I can assure you, it was anything but.
1/3 C. oats, banana soft serve, 1 tbsp. Naturally More, and a dollop of Calorie Free Walden Farms Chocolate Dip.
I ended up being on-the-run, yet again and ate in my car on the way to work. I actually had to scoop it out of the tupperware with my fingers. HA. It was SO good, though.
It may not look appetizing, but when you think about it, it’s got gold mine written all over it! I mean seriously…banana, chocolate & peanut butter?? How can you go wrong?? Cool, creamy, and refreshing.
My boss brought in some cherry tomatoes from the mini garden that she got while we were shopping together at the Farmer’s Market. Hers is thriving, mine is dead…
I munched on them at my desk around 10:30AM.
They were perfectly ripe and sweet! I love how cherry tomatoes “explode” in your mouth like little bursts of flavor. Almost like nature’s gushers.
Everyone was on break so I had no fear of being embarassed by a co-worker walking over and enjoying the GUNSHOW 😀
And STRONG legs.
Around 12PM, I dove into my lunchbox for some real grub.
Spinach salad with sliced mini bell peppers, snap peas, tomatoes, & balsamic vinegar
For the sandwich, I made some healthy chicken salad and put it over spinach on my whole wheat bread.
1/2 can Swanson 97% fat free canned chicken
1 tbsp. salsa
2 tsp. mustard
After work, I ate my pre-workout fuel aka a peanut buttah & apple sandweech. ‘Twas another day of work, gym, & class.
Naturally More & a 1/2 sliced gala on whole wheat
The workout was pretty epic. Okay, I lie. It was the same old. But it felt great!
40 minutes on the Cross Ramp (avg. HR: 149)
2 sets of 1:30 planks
2 sets of 25 in-and-outs
1 set of 20 pushups
7 minutes dreadmill
2 sets of 10 hip adductors
10 more minutes on the Cross Ramp
I showered up and headed to the car where I had this post workout, pre-class group of goods
The rest of the apple which wouldn’t fit into the sandwich, some steamed veggies sprinkled with nooch & dolloped with salsa.
Oh yeah, and for some protein, Chobs saved the day yet again, unfortunately there’s no picture credit. FYI, it was strawberry flavored. You’ve got the visual 😉
I had some more steamed cauliflower & broccoli while packing my lunch for the next day, complete with mustard topping.
During class, it was announced that everything had to be moved 1 day ahead of schedule because our professor wants to have a “review day” before the final. I can’t believe my first “back to school” class is over next Thursday! We’ve got a big exam Monday, review day Tuesday, and our final on Thursday! AhH!
When I got home, I figured some ice cream was in order. Arctic Zero Peanut Butter Chocolate to be exact. Hooray for 16g of whey protein, and 0g fat in this stuff!
For dessert numero dos, I had a Goodernoob, which I received in the mail yesterday! Only 30 calories per piece and GREAT ingredients! Dates being the base, it taste sweet and decadent, just like candy!
Perfect Peanut Butter
Post dessert, some friends of ours game over and we watched “It’s Complicated” OnDemand. I saw this movie in theatres when it first came out, but it was just as funny the 2nd time around!
Sleep came easy at around 10:30PM!
HAPPY FRIDAY, BLOGGIES!
1. What’s your favorite breakfast on the run from home? I like greek yogurt, breakfast cookies, or protein shakes!
2. What’s one movie that you could watch over and over again? I used to be able to watch Mrs. Doubtfire on repeat when I was little! Now adays, I’d say How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days, 7 Pounds, 12 Rounds, and The Last Song.
