“I was sure by now
God You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away, stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say “Amen”, and it’s still raining
As the thunder rolls,
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
“I’m with you”
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives and takes away
And I’ll praise You in this storm, And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are, No matter where I am
And every tear I’ve cried, You hold in Your hand
You never left my side, And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm”
Do you find it difficult to praise God and thank Him for what He’s given us even when things aren’t so pleasant? I know I do! I was listening to this Casting Crowns song on my way to work this morning and couldn’t help but share it.
Breakfast, however, I will NOT be sharing. I think I scarfed it up in about 2 minutes flat. Who says sundaes are only for dessert!?
Chocolate Peanut Butter Arctic Zero “frozen dessert” with heated mashed banana ontop
The warm, sweet banana gently melted away at the fudge-like peanut buttery ice cream and it tasted just as decadent as it looks.
I love that I can down a pint of this Arctic Zero for just 150 calories, 0g fat, and 16g of whey protein! Combine it with the mushy naner and you’ve got a nice combo of protein & carbs to start your day off right.
Lunch & Dinner (part 1) were of the packed nature. Since I had class (and my exam!) from 6-8, with a workout in between, I knew I’d want something to tide me over until I got home.
Spinach salads with sliced red, orange, & yellow pepper, cherry tomatoes, carrots, and cukes. Topped with chickpeas & drizzled with Balsamic Vinegar.
Twin hugh jasses.
You know what they say! Pair it with a carb, right, Holly?
1 La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat High Fiber Low Carb wrap spread with Sonoma Jack’s Pepperjack Cheese & Apricot SF Jam + Fiber
Anddd to eat with dinner’s salad I this beaut was packed up:
1 Lite Whole Grain High Fiber Thomas English Muffin sprayed twice with ICBINB spray + sprinkled with cinnamon & organic zero.
The ladies at work get a kick out of the fact that I bring my HUGE salads to work in old cookie dough containers…I can’t help it they’re the biggest ones I have! 🙂
35 minutes Cross Ramp (various intervals)
5 minutes vigorous biking
5 minutes quick sprint on the dreadmill
10 minutes extra on the Cross Ramp
I made it a quickie since I wanted to get some extra study time in before the big exam. This week is going to be NUTS. An exam & a final in a matter of 3 days.
1 scant scoop Vanilla Chai AM, 1/2 c. unsweet almond milk, palm full of frozen spinach, 1 frozen banana, + water
