Anyways. Lets back up to yesterday shall we?
The morning started off with some coffee and not just any coffee. Jason and I got a new roast and he got some new Mugs!! how cute are these?
Archer Farms AKA Target Brand cinnamon vanilla nut coffee!! I could not just walk past this and not try it! Verdict? Delicious! but it was a very light/mild roast so if you like strong coffee I suggest to make more scoops then water in your coffee maker.
Berry berry oats with 1/2 banana, frozen blueberries, strawberries, pb on bottom
One thing I love about my new gym is that with my membership I can use any of the Beacon Hill Athletic Clubs and there are about 4 in the area that I use. I went to a spin class at 11:15 at one club and it was awesome!! I loved it and another thing I love about this gym is that the members are MY AGE. my other gym the general population was older (~50) and now I am surrounded by those who are my age. I love this!
Came home for a shower and a Raspberry Protein shake with Kashi Puffs.
- 1 Packet Jay Robb Whey vanilla protein
- frozen raspberries
- 1 C skim milk
- 1 C almond milk
- 3/4 C Kashi Puffs
After downing enjoying my shake to the fullest. I went to the BHAC (gym) and met with the fitness director to talk about teaching spin and muscle and abs classes. I am officially on the pay roll and sub list!! This also means I don't have to pay membership!! thats $64 a month FREE. I am so exstactic and I am also so excited to start teaching classes!
I treated myself to a grande iced coffee with 2 pumps SF cinnamon dolce and skim milk
and lots of cinnamon on top!
I got a salad from Thyago's which is a great little local pizza joint near Jasons house. I got a garden then when I got home I added some shredded cheese and left over grilled chicken from Friday.
Enjoyed with mah coffee and Franks Red hot--because I put that sh*t on everything.
Seriously, everything...I could swim in that bottle if I wanted to.
Later that night Jason and I were going to cook a great dinner. We are celebrating 1 year being together so we decided to have a chill night and cook a delicious dinner
I baked pita chips with EVOO, salt and pepper at 375 for 12 minutes...we dipped in Sabra and topped with manchego cheese
Roasted a pepper! Yes this is how you roast a pepper...right on the stove
Just keep spinning it around until it looks like this. I used tongs to do this. It gets very hot!
Place in aluminum foil to cool for about 10 minutes.
I diced it up and put it on our salad with fresh strawberries, dried cranberries, grapes and avocado.
Sweet potato fries (baked with EVOO, salt and pepper) Broccoli Rabe, grilled STEAK! (yess! I was so in the mood, I don't think I have had steak since last summer)
My Plate. I also had about ~2 glasses of Reisling wine. Delicious and fresh!
Today started off with a bowl of oats, but I didn't snap a shot, you all know what my oats look like right?
Lunch at Panera Bread. I got the new salmon salad. Chilled salmon filet served on a bed of field greens and romaine, with baby Kalamata olives, feta cheese, Mandarin oranges, sliced almonds and red onions all tossed in our new honey tangerine vinaigrette dressing.
ANd the new Garden vegetable soup with pesto. A low-fat vegetarian soup with diced tomatoes, sliced zucchini, yellow beans, fresh Swiss chard, cauliflower, bell peppers and pearled barley in a tomato broth. Garnished with a dollop of nut-free basil pesto.
BOTH WERE DELICIOUS!!! I was so happy with my choices and I will absolutely be back to Panera for these two items!! The soup was not salty at all and I loved the hint of pesto. The salmon salad was a perfect size and the salmon was tender and not fishy at all.
I made some V-day goodies for my secret santa! and some extras to bring to my parents house for their super bowl party. SUgar cookies with cream cheese frosting and M&M's. Pretzel bites with Kisses and M&Ms
- Do you strength train? What is your favorite exercise? I love strength training and I love compound movements that work multiple muscles all at once. Squat--into a biceps curl is a great one!!
- Has a restaurant you love recently added a new item that you cannot get enough of? Mine would be the new salmon salad and soup at Panera!
- What are you doing for superbowl?? What is your favorite football munchy food? I love the classic chips and salsa OR carrots in artichoke dip!!
PEACE AND LOVE
