Another Day, Another Dollar.

Posted on

Isn’t it one of the coolest feelings in the world when God puts something on your heart that you know could’ve only come from Him?  Like an idea to bless someone in your life, or someone he’s put you in contact with that you feel like He’s leading you to be an example to? I don’t know about you, but I feel like God slaps me in the face with it sometimes.  Okay, so it’s more like a love tap 😉

Breakfast was supposed to be a microwaved oatmeal cookie (1/4 C. oats, 1 egg white, 1/4 C. canned pumpkin, sf syrup & cinnamon), but I don’t think I cooked it long enough.  Either way, it was delicious topped with some pineapple Chobani.

I have only been out of coconut butter for about a week now, but already I’m missing it immensely.  As Kat said, I think I’m going to try making my own.  Think of how amazing this would’ve been with melted coconut butter icing?!

Work was super slow.  I mean, it felt like 4 PM before lunchtime even rolled around.

Light Italian-Style Vegetable.  It was the perfect day for soup at my desk, considering the blustery chill of the winter air outside.

Of course, I beefed it up a little, so to speak, since a whole can was just 120 calories.  I knew I’d need more sustenance that that.

I added some black beans, peas, zucchini, and tomatoes and also packed a Tumaro’s healthy flour wrap spread with Sonoma Jack’s pepperjack cheese.  It was an excellent DIPPER in my soup.  Comfort food, amen?

After a chilly walk to my car, I fueled up for a crazy amount of cardio with this snack in my car on the way to the gym.

Classic.  Doesn’t get any better than a banana & Justin’s MAPLE almond butter. 

Healthy carbs & fat was just what the doctor ordered to power me through 10 minutes on the Cross Ramp, 15 minutes of ab work, and a 1 & 1/2 hour basketball practice.  Total, I burned off about 1100 calories, according to my HR monitor.  Yeah, it burned so good.  My phone battery was dead, thus, no HR monitor photo, but you know what it looks like, right?

Poppa FF had a taco feast all ready to go when I got home!  Thanks Tumaro’s for sponsoring our family dinner tonight.  Everyone loved your soft wraps as burritos! 

Healthy flour honey wheat tortilla with shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes, black beans and fat free refried beans with a healthy dose of light sour cream and salsaYUMMM.

I think we all know, I couldn’t stop with just one. DUH.  Refueling is one of my favorite parts of exercise, after all 😉

For dessert, I had a raspberry Chobani and two cuties…you know, those baby oranges?  They are pretty cute 😀 OH yeah, and maybe a spoonful of chocolate almond butter.  MMMmm.

Speaking of sweets, one of my beautiful blog friends, Lauren sent me this adorable package for Christmas!

I am so incredibly grateful for our friendship.  She has been a true blessing in my life…not to mention, her awesome recipes and healthy lifestyle are such a great example for the healthy living community.

It came complete with this adorable tin stuffed full with gluten-free snowflake cookies and an AWESOME looking chocolate bar that I can’t wait to dig into.  Thanks so much, Lauren, for the package and your friendship.  I can’t wait to meet!  It WILL work out one of these times, I promise! 🙂

So, what’s number one on all your wish lists?!  I’m LOVING the etsy.com website.   I could pick out SO many things from there for Christmas!

Xo.
