After a super busy, fun filled weekend the man and I decided to take it easy on Monday. I slept in, got up and ate brekkie, let it digest and then headed to the gym (the little one was at my mother in laws). When I pulled up to the Y it was jam packed! I circled the parking lot like 4 times and could not find a space, so I decided to take my workout home. I walked 2 miles with the hub and then I ran/walked the 3rd one alone. When I got back to house I did some random free weights. I was really sweating and it felt great. I made a cottage cheese smoothie when I was done...
- 1/2 cup LFCC (lactose free cottage cheese)
- 1 cup UVAM (unsweet. van. almond milk)
- 3 in. banana chunk
- fresh and frozen strawberries
We slowly got ready for the day and headed out to pick up the little one and eat dinner at my in laws house. No pics there. But my sweet mother in law marinated me a chicken breast cause they were having BBQ sauce soaked ribs. She also steamed me some asparagus because they were having sugared green beans and potato salad. I also brought a chunk of kabocha squash baked, that sweetie pie Heather gave me. I was full after we ate but by the time we left I was ready for a the treat I had waiting in the fridge...
Look how thick...That's just plain old UVAM with 2 tbsp chia seeds (also given to me by sweetie pie Heather). It was nice and thick when I got home so I added some stevia, cinnamon, 1 spoonful of LFCC and blended away. Yum, it was like a nice cold vanilla pudding.
I was on a roll with 2 new foods in one day :).
This morning I woke up at the butt crack of dawn for the weight class at the Y. I almost talked myself outta going (do you ever do that?) but I am glad I didn't. After the class I did 10 min. on the elliptical, 10 min. on the stair climber and then some deadlifts and tricept press downs.
That's a rough copy of Heathers Chia Protein Oat Bran. Mine contained
- 1/2 oat bran
- water (unmeasured)
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 large strawberry, chopped
For my snack I had this...
That's a quarter of a kabocha squash ( I am so confused on how to spell this) heated and filled with an unmeasured spoonful of Trader Joes Crunchy Almond Butter. I love this squash, skin and all! Its so dense and really fills you up. Here's the nutrition facts I found on them just in case you are wondering.
Well, I am starting to get hungry for lunch and I have yet another doctors appointment to get ready for soon.
Have a great Tuesday!!!
CONFESSION OF THE DAY: I will absolutely not let my little one eat fast food. All the grandparents know this but this weekend the rule was broken and I am still a little upset. I am trying to get over it. I know I cant keep her from it forever but as long as possible would be nice :).
