I feel like a failure with the Bible Challenge. Please start holding me accountable, because this weekend I didn’t even TOUCH my Bible. Talk about a super guilty conscience.
Here’s your verse of the day:
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Breakfast, for once was not the most blogworthy, so I don’t have photos. Basically, it was an egg/oat puff with a protein shake on the side. What do you think I should start calling them? Eggoats? Eggo might get offended.
Lunch however, WAS noteworthy. Even if it was from a box.
Morningstar Farms Lasagna with Sausage-Style Crumbles. I’m always a bit sketchy about frozen meals. Otherwise I’d be eating them all the time due to convenience in the midst of a busy full-time worker, part-time student athlete lifestyle. I’m sure some of you can relate!
The stats were pretty great, and the ingredients list was identifiable. 20g protein, 270 calories, 6g fiber, and not quite as much sodium as most frozen meals contain.
Usually, I worry that if something has great stats like this and comes in a box, it’s going to taste like one…but I gave it a try because Morningstar has never failed me in the past. See all the veggies incorporated?! I should’ve known that was a good sign. It was GREAT. A true comforting meal. There was a perfect amount of distributed cheese throughout the dish, not overwhelmed by marinara sauce and piled with onion, kale, carrots, and red peppers!
To bulk up the meal, and for some extra greens, I packed cucumber fries and yellow pepper slices.
After work, I headed to the gym at school, where I ate 1/2 of this beastly banana prior to ellipticizing for the next hourish.
After the fitness center, it was time for basketball open gym. I finished up the banana beast in the locker room and measled my way into the gym. We played three-on-three from about five til a little after six.
Max HR 184; Cals burned 818; Almost two-hour workout.
This heart rate monitor was the BEST purchase I’ve made for a long time. Literally, I use it about EVERY day.
When I got home I whipped up a quick dinner. One of my favorites, actually! A whole bag of broccoli slaw, fat-free cottage cheese, Forty Spices Tribe hummus, lima beans, and fat-free marinara.
So many different textures from the cottage cheese curds to the starchy limas to the creamy hummus….it’s a party in your mouth, I tell ya 😉
On the side, I had some cooked butternut squash sliced and coated in sugar-free Artista Gourmet syrup & cinnamon.
For icing on the cake squash, I mixed in some of the coconut sf syrup with a vanilla Chobani!
FOODgasm. And yes, I eat the skin of the squash. Fiber, much?
I also may or may not have eaten a bowl of Oatmeal Squares cereal with a touch of brown sugar later on. So sad that I waited so long to try them. Quaker knows what’s up. There was also an apple & a white peach consumed somewhere along the lines!
It’s already hump day, ya’ll! Don’tcha love short work weeks?!
