Happy Wednesday! I finally made it back for a post; I have been busy getting things lined up for Fall Semester. Summer needs to slowwww down!
First let’s start with What I Worked Wednesday:
For yesterday’s workout, I headed over to the campus rec center for a little treadmill run. I completed….1 minute. This was how long I was on the machine before I was bombarded by smoke, sirens, and voices telling us all to evacuate the building immediately. Well alrighty then! Apparently a fire was started somehow within the building. I never saw where exactly, but the smoke was enough for me; I was out of there faster than anyone else haha. Don’t need to tell me twice! So I headed back home for a cardio workout date with the lovely Chalene Johnson instead.
I completed the Easy Fire 55 minute Class…one of my favorites!
Today’s workout: I rediscovered one of my own workout creations: Circuit, Double Tabata, and Ab Finisher. Again, another great workout!
I’m 2 for 2 on awesome workouts. Now the next two days will be active rest due to a very full work schedule. My job keeps me moving constantly so it really ends up being a workout in itself. I like it that way though; I would much rather be up and moving around than chained behind a desk all day. I will never have an 8-5 desk job…mark my words. I wouldn’t last more than a few days, guarantee it. I would lose my mind!
Now here are a few eats as of late. I haven’t taken very many pics so these are more like bits and pieces. Still delicious though.
What I Ate Wednesday:
steel cut oats with almond milk and cinnamon, egg omelet with goat cheese, farm fresh peaches
toasted english muffin with garlic powder, italian seasonings, and some butter. Arugula salad with goat cheese, salsa, olives, and three cheese chicken sausage
romaine salad with avocado dressing and spinach feta chicken sausage
Avocado makes the best homemade dressings! It’s so creamy. I have been drizzling this stuff on everything!
chocolate covered strawberry smoothie: 1 scoop chocolate casein protein powder, 1 cup strawberries, 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup water, 1 cup ice cubes, dash of stevia and thickening gums.
Stuft Mamma’s Rice Crispy Treat with peanut flour. Another winner! Not that I would ever NOT like anything from Kristin. That is laughable.
2% greek yogurt mixed with cinnamon and a banana nut cake bar
kale, turkey bacon, deli turkey, 4 eggwhites, seasonings—>sauteed in a pan and topped with peanut butter and cherry tomatoes. Purple sweet potato on the side.
It’s no secret I am in love with peanut butter…or nut butter in general. It’s doesn’t have to always go on something sweet though. PB has been getting a little savory around here. This was GOOD.
protein shake with crumbled rice cakes. Love that crunch!
cracker crisps with protein fudge dip. This is just fudge brownie protein powder mixed with almond milk
more savory peanut butter action: chicken, baked sweet potato nuggets (in coconut oil and sea salt), and roasted eggplant fries
random plate of veggies, ezekiel toast with butter and homemade pesto, hot dogs
I finished off this coconut peanut butter jar…sad face. It was put to good use with Oats In a Jar though, don’t worry. This concoction was 1 scoop fudge brownie protein, 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 3 tbsp cocoa powder, and almond milk.
I have some Q’s for today:
Have you ever had to evacuate a building before?
Have you tried nut butters in a savory dish?
I’m signing off for the night. The plan? Kick back with some homemade pizza…yes, again…and watch some of my favorite shows: Big Brother and Real World. It’s the little things. Enjoy your night!
