It's a beautifully sunny morning where I am. This makes me so happy because I'm going on a run outside today!! Yes, that's right. I can workout again! Yesterday was the last day of my no-working-out for a week plan. I feel great. I did some stretches before bed last night to make sure I'm all loose and ready for a hard workout.
I have to say, I'm sorry for not posting yesterday. I was planning to do one big post last night, but I COMPLETELY forgot to take pictures of my dinner party last night :( I realized it after all our plates were cleaned off, and the food was gone. I'm sorry - blogger fail.
I do have photos from all my other meals though.
For breakfast I had another breakfast cookie (courtesy of the Fitnessista).
(chocolate pumpkin breakfast cookie with plain yogurt and strawberries - stay tuned for the recipe)
Lunch was cottage cheese mixed with yogurt and a few blueberries, veggies, light laughing cow cheese (I'm addicted to these), and an oatmeal to go bar.
I packed it all up to take to class with me.
When I got home, I snacked on this tasty treat. Half and banana with half a tablespoon of peanut butter.
I haven't been eating bananas much lately. I'm watching how much sugar I'm eating, so I usually only eat fruit once a day, if I eat it at all.
Dinner was just what I told you guys it would be. Lemon chicken, yam fries, and a green salad with goat feta, cranberries, and pine nuts. It was so good! I just wish the lemon would have absorbed more into the chicken (I used this recipe, but I changed up the chicken things for chicken breast, and only cooked it for about 30 minutes at 375 degrees).
This morning I made the same thing as yesterday.
Pumpkin Chocolate Breast Cookie
- 40 grams of oats
- 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 2 T pumpkin puree (any more and the cookie is still soft the next morning)
- 1 T UVAB
- 1 T natural peanut butter
The next morning I like to put plain yogurt and strawberries on top.
Please don't be scared of the combination of chocolate and pumpkin. It works, trust me!
Ok... enough blogging. I'm itching to get active and workout! See you all soon :)
