Onto some eats!
Thursday morning I woke up and had a few bites of a banana and hit the gym. I told myself I only wanted to run on the treadmill twice this week. My knees have been bothering me, I think from all of this running I have been doing, that I need to give the running a break for a bit. I have decided Mondays and Tuesdays will be my running day. Therefore, I ended up doing 20 minutes on the Step mill (big stairs) reading some US weekly, and then 20 minutes on the arc trainer. I hit the weights for a short session.
- Military presses.
- Assisted Pull ups
- DB Clean and presses
- Mountain climbers on the bosu
- Quick Step up's on bench
- Bosu front and reverse lunges
- 1 min crunches with Medicine Ball between knees (while at 90 degrees)
- 1 min leg lifts, alternating sides
- 30 sec each side side planks with dips
- 1 min stability ball roll outs
- 1 min Crab Abs
- Repeat twice.
Devoured some Protein oats!
1/2 C oats, chia, 1/2 banana, 2 whipped eggwhites
Add some Berries and PB and VOILA. perfection. (coffee as well!)
I made some lunch afterwards to bring to work. I found these 100 calorie weight watchers whole wheat (say that 10 times fast) pita pockets I thought would be great and they have 9g of fiber! I topped one with honey dijon mustard, red onion, tomato, 3 oz Applegate Farms Turkey breast, baby spinach and kalamata olive hummus
I liked this very much! it was a change from the normal Josephs wraps I get, and they were so thick and held up perfectly! I didn't even cut it in half, just shoved the big circular sandwich in mah mouth. I also had a salad with homemade dressing on the side!
Couple hours later I was so happy to dig into my Chobani and it was a major Fail. I don't think you can see from the picture but this was before I touched it! I opened it brand new and it was about halfway gone! I think they forgot to fill this one to the top! I was super disappointed, but enjoyed my few bites of yogurt nonetheless.
Munched on this apple
And half of this Amazing Grass PB and Chocolate bar. Love these.
For dinner, I broke into this soup I had gotten a while back. It was Campbells Select Harvest Light Minestrone with whole grain pasta.

I was pleasantly surprised with this soup! I am very weary of canned soups but I really enjoyed this! it was chock full of greens, potato, pasta and veggies it was comforting and not too salty
Also had some tofu and veggie stirfry! YUM
Today, I woke up and made some coffee and oats on the stove which I haven't done in so long!
1/2 C oats, chia seeds, water, 1/2 banana
So good and filled to the brim (PB on the bottom :))
french press coffee with SO delicious French Vanilla creamer. I love how the french Press makes the coffee so frothy!
I came home (slept at Jasons) and made some lunch and dinner for work. I also made a protein shake using my sample of Sun Warrior Protein Powder.
Says everything right there! I LOVED this protein!
I have been looking for a protein that is all natural and i have heard amazing things about Sun Warrior. This was the vanilla but I am sure both the vanilla and chocolate are equally great! It was a bit different tasting at first than my normal BSN protein, but after a few sips, wow was it tasty!
1/2 C frozen berry mix
1/2 C skim milk
1/2 C almond milk
1 packet Sun WArrior protein----
Made another WW pita with grilled chicken, baby spinach, tomaters, red onion and Sabra
Had about half this bar a few hours later. It was smushed in my bag, but it was DELICIOUS! first time with the Dulce De Leche flavor and it was heavenly. It tasted like a decadent dessert.
Some pillow bites of Kays Protein bites and plain Chob's for a snackie before Spin class! I took spin at 5:45 tonight at my gym. It was awesome! the good thing about the gym (where I work) is it is a corporate center so the classes are small and we can joke with each other. its a great, non threatening atmosphere which is important especially to our new members.
I didn't take a pic of dinner but it was some chicken meatballs and roasted cauliflower with some soup!
Came home and was ravishing (and still am) Kashi puffs with Almond milk and Strawberries.
I think the working out at night makes me MORE hungry!
Thats all I got! I am now watching 18 kids and counting on TLC-the show about a family with 18 naturally born kids and she is pregnant with a 19th! thats just crazy! I will be tuning in to JERSEY SHORE at 10 (yey) don't judge me haha
- When you workout at night are you MORE hungry?
- What do you think about having 18 kids, or the thought of giving birth to 18 kids!?
- What is the newest food/snack you have discovered that you love?
