Working 7am-3pm wasn’t supposed to make me feel like a zombie, but I suppose it’s worth it, since I’ve been able to attend all of my basketball practices. I can’t believe our first game is in a few weeks!

When I do finally arrive at my building after walking under the creepiest bridge ever from the lot I pay to park in downtown, I set up my own little breakfast making station at my desk. Not many people in the office work the shift I do, so it’s nice and peaceful.
A delicious, healthy breakfast is necessary on days like these…like a consolation prize for my pulling myself out of bed at 5am….NOT for a workout. Somehow, it was easier when I knew I’d be sweating and revving up my body at that time back in the booty camp days.
Mid-morning snack (aka, breakfast #2) = Lemon 0% Chobani + 1 of Katie’s Coconut Almond Macaroons crumbled in.
Before I know it, my lunchtime arrives.
This picture doesn’t do justice to how large my salad truly is. A huge bed of chopped green leaf lettuce, broken asparagus spears, baby bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and english cucumbers. The large and in charge bottle to the left is a new product which I LOVE and found at Wegman’s.
Mango Vinegar Spritzer
Ingredients: Mango Juice, White Wine Vinegar, Natural Mango Extract, Xanthan Gum, Sulphide Dioxide; 1 tbsp = 15 calories
HUGE fan…although it did cost me about $6.
Before practice, I usually have some type of
candy fuel. These bars are my favorite…Elise’s recommendation. 120 calories, made from brown rice syrup, dates, and other wholesome ingredients. What you’re not seeing is ziplock baggie of frozen grapes that I ate, too. Nature’s sugar at it’s best.
After a two hour practice, I’m pretty beat, but it’s a good kind of beat, you know? On days I don’t have class, I go straight home to get a shower…and then, when I’m out, I devour dinner (hence, no photos). Usually, it’s something effortless like steamed vegetables (broccoli slaw, peas, snap peas, green beans – whatever is in my freezer), protein (whether it’s ff cottage cheese, grilled chicken, or deli turkey), and carb (brown rice, ww bread, oat cake).
Then, for dessert before bed, I always have a shake. I have been using 1/2 scoop Vega chocolate & 1/2 scoop chocolate whey together and it is delish. Helps me sleep, too!
If you’re counting, that’s two cheeseball “thumbs up” pictures in one post. I guess I’m a little awkward on camera. Haha. Sidenote: Jarid also likes to point out that when I’m alone in a photo, I always tilt my head to the left a little bit. It’s too funny, now that I look back on all the pics he has of me.
Do you have a signature picture pose?
