Breakfast was another success, thanks to Quaker 🙂 I think I can officially consider them one of my favorite companies.
1/3 C. old fashioned oats, 1 egg white, sugar free vanilla Torani, 1/2 smashed banana, and 1/4 C. frozen bloobs
Next, I added the icing which was made from 1/2 scoop vanilla Optimum Nutrition protein powder and thinned with water.
It was a breakfast fit for a queen! Like a mix betweena a blueberry and banana muffin!
The warm oats warmed me to the bone, just before heading out to face the cold walk to work. Luckily, my little sis is a sweetheart and starts my car for me everyday before she gets picked up for school. My Dad says it’s best that the engine has some time to warm up when it’s this cold outside.
Coffee doesn’t hurt either 😉
Work isn’t bad. Not much else to say about it though. It’s not very “exciting” work. Lots of paperwork and processing since I’m in human resources.
Two slices of Arnold’s 10 grain bread; One with forty spices hummus, sliced turkey, tomato, and alfalfa sprouts; One with 1 tbsp. fat free cream cheese, a smear of fat free ricotta cheese, and no sugar added apple butter. On the side, a can of cut green beans.
I mostly just look forward to lunchtime and 4PM when I get to leave and head to the gym.
This snack bag fueled me through a 2 and 1/2 hour workout! It contained a 100 calorie pack of cocoa roasted almonds, 1/2 banana, and some dried, unsweetened apple rings from Oh Nuts!
Practice is back to the original time (5PM-7PM), so I’ve got a whole hour to waste in the fitness room before it starts. I just did 20 minutes light cardio on the Cross Ramp and then some ab work on the floor mats. The end result, practice included? 1012 calories burned, 180 max hr.
That little beauty was consumed upon my arrival home until I had time to throw together a beastly dinner salad which was inspired by my love for Ruby Tuesday’s salad bar.
Get ready for this massive list of ingredients cause it’s comin’ atcha…annnnnd go:
Baby spinach, broccoli, raw zucchini fries, sliced beets, diced cukes, baby carrots (halved), canned sweet peas, fat free cottage cheese, chickpeas, and dressed up in some Fat Free Vidalia Onion dressing with beet juice.
Yes, I was quite a proud salad momma 🙂 With some NewTree chocolate for good measure.
Dessert came in liquid form and was slurped out of this adorable tall glass that we picked up on our many adventures across the country. This one in particular came from the Old Spaghetti Factory out in Kansas where my sisters’ basketball team was playing in a National Tournament.
It may not look like much, but this PROTEIN PINA COLADA put me over the edge into an “uncomfortably full” feeling.
3/4 scoop vanilla Optimum Nutrition protein, 1/2 C. canned crushed pineapple in juice, 1/3 C. fat free milk, 3 ice cubes, 2 tbsp. unsweetened coconut, and 1 butt of a banana.
It was amaaaaaazing. Super creamy and frothy.
I facebooked and video chatted for the first time last night! My friend, Kirk sent me an invitation to download the “Tango” app on my droid. It’s SWEEET. Try it out!
Have you ever used video chat or Skype? What do you thinK? Pro’s, con’s?
