More DCD oats with frozen berries...this is my go-to breakfast, if you know me and know my blog, I legit eat this almost everyday and have yet to get sick of it. I acutally look forward to it everyday!
Coffee in my LOVE mug. I got it around valentines day at Target but love it way past valentines day.
Wrap with turkey breast, romaine, hummus, baby spinach. Hit The Spot
More Yoatgurt with frozen berries and PB added after the pic was taken.
Friday night Jason and I met up with some friends for dinner and some drinks.I didn't snap any shots but it was a such a fun night. This foodie had one too many glasses of pinot grigio however I had the best time!!
Saturday I woke up not feeling too hot btu I got my act together quick because we were taking a road trip to Connecticut to visit Jasons sister.
1/2 C oats with frozen blueberries added at the end. PB spoon for some lovin in mi boca
We stopped at Starbucks before we hit the highway and I got a coffee. Jason got a reduced fat muffin, but there was a HUGE hole in the middle! I said to him, yeah thats why its reduced fat
Connecticut was really fun! His sister just moved into a new apartment and we helped her with some things, it was so nice and great to see her!
Dinner Sat night was back around us. We went to the Deluxe Town Diner which is a diner in Watertown, ma with the BIGGEST menu I have ever seen in my life. IN addition to all of the traditional breakfast/brunch foods, they have wraps, steaks, pasta, soups, salads...think it and its on the menu!
--we started with some TAP water. It was the cutest idea putting tap water in a fancy bottle.
My eye would not move from the "grilled chicken wrap"
It did not disappoint (sorry it came out blurry!) I chose a whole wheat wrap with a salad instead of fries.
It was bursting with middleeastern flavors and hummus! So good
Coleslaw on the side that must have had 1/4 C of sugar in that little container. I could only stomach a few bites, it tasted like dessert!
PIc of the diner.
Jason got steak and potatoes wiht a side of rice and beans. He cleaned his plate!! As you can see I snapped my shot too late.
Sunday was a VERY lazy day for us! I was feeling so blah and extremely cranky (thanks to my TOM) I wanted to do nothing all day! I took the whole weekend off from working out which is rare because usually I like to spread out my 'rest' days but my body really needed it, so I listened! We watched the Hangover in the morning and then did some errands. We ended the day by going to the supermarket an I got a delicious new prodcut
Tabatchnick Soup! THis soup was found in the "JEwish foods" Section of the freezer and it looked very intriguing.
I loved the ingredients list
And the stats!
it was delicious! The box came with 2 pouches, so I have one left to have this week!!
I also made a wrap. This had turkey, romaine, shredded cheese, tomatoes and Kosher Dills. It was perfect! Just what I wanted.
---JAson and I played a little role reversal because he spent the evening cooking, whereas I just threw together my dinner
He made HOMEMADE chicken cutlets with pasta!
He dipped chicken cutlets in 1 egg and then in garlic and herb breadcrumbs. He flash fried them in a pan with some canola oil. They were crispy and golden brown. I was SO impressed
But it doesn't end there. He also had a hankering for Rice Krispie Treats. So he made them!
3 TBSP butter and 1 package of marshmellows.
Add 6 cups of rice crispy treats and Done! They were extra buttery.
My dinner or Jasons dinner?
1/3 C oatbran, frozen raspberries, 1 TBSP chia seeds and an "N" for Naomi of PB!
A co-worker gave me a whole case of this. SHe doesn't like the raspberry flavor so I got it! It is powder glucosamine
Glucosamine is a natural substance that is found in shellfish. Glucosamine is an important supplement to take if you exercise regulary especially as you are getting older.
I mixed 8oz of water with some Glucosamine. It tasted pretty good! I would definitely suggest that the water be very cold! As it got warmer, It got a little hard to swallow (TWSS) sorry, couldn't help it!
Kays Protein cereal was a snackie at around 11:30. The Honey Almond flavor!! Love these! 100 calories and 9g of protein in 1 bag!
With some Chobani
came home a master wrap! (yes 3 wraps in 1 post) I realized I LOVE wraps and could probably live off of them for a while. This baby had sprouts, tofu, hummus, tomatoes, red onion, romaine. Perfection
Side of veggies sprinkled with some no salt seasoning. Love those carrot chips (from Target!)
Now I am digesting and off to the gym to meet with my trainer! I am so looking forward to this workout because I took 2 days off so I am rearing to go! I always make sure I give my body rest when it needs it because I never want to overtrain. Do you think you have experienced overtraining?
- Washed-out feeling, tired, drained, lack of energy
- Mild leg soreness, general aches and pains
- Pain in muscles and joints
- Sudden drop in performance
- Decreased immunity (increased number of colds, and sore throats)
- Decrease in training capacity / intensity
- Moodiness and irritability
- Loss of enthusiasm for the sport
- Decreased appetite
- Increased incidence of injuries.
- Compulsive need to exercise
- Have you ever experienced overtraining? I have and the way I deal with is take a WHOLE WEEK off!
- Favorite childhood dessert? Mine was Ice cream sandwiches (homemade of course!)
