Happy Wednesday!!! You know what today is don’t you? It’s not just Wednesday, it’s another WIAW
If you haven’t joined the party yet please link up with the wonderful Jenn over at Peas and Crayons and post your most delectable munchies
First up is my favorite meal of the day, breakfast of course!
I topped it with maple syrup, chocolate
chips morsels and cinnamon raisin pb. It was AMAZING.
Yes peeps, happy tummy for sure
This is a staple dish that me and the bf make all the time. Chicken with broccoli tossed with a sriracha peanut butter sauce. After we started making this I was convinced that peanut butter goes with anything
(Notice the chop sticks? Note: I am really really bad with those, forks were used quickly after a few missed attempts)
I experimented with some cereal muffins and will post the recipe soon enough. The final product was tossed with yogurt, bloobs, strawberries, and milk Mmmm
Well that’s all folks
- Best thing you’ve eaten all week? Make me jealous
Sun where are you?! I have woken up to a sunless sky which is unacceptable for a Friday! I was able to sleep in a bit more this morning since my piano class was canceled so I was not complaining. Breakfast would be oats once again. I am seriously addicted and ever since converting from the microwave to the stove they are just so much tastier. I am a true believer in stove top oats (don’t get me wrong I will use microwave when rushed).
Today was going to be a pretty basic mix but I decided to throw in some cottage cheese because tonight I’m going out with the girls to RA for sushi and I need all the protein I can get.
Threw in some peanuts and kashi for crunch. Almond butter is a must for oatmeal and the chocolate is Walden Farms chocolate dip. ZERO calories. Oh how I love their syrups and dips! I’ve found them only once at Publix so your best bet is to order online but they get you with the shipping 😦
Today’s workout was well a workout 😉
Started off with some leg presses, hit my max at 210 woohooo. Step ups were a challenge. It use to be so easy when I started doing them with 5 lb dumbbells but now with 20’s oh man it’ll make you sweat. My new workout routine has me doing push ups to build upper body strength and from the girl who would fall on her face in 10th grade P.E class, I can now do 10 pretty successful. I know most of you can dish out like 20 no problem but my arms are tiny! lol I’m trying 😛
Everything else was pretty routine: lat pulldowns, wood choppers (love these), hyperextensions, and leg lifts.
My Friday workout is my longest and I really don’t like to waste time chatting it up because every minute counts. I think it’s great to make friends at the gym and maybe it’s just me, but does it annoy anyone else when random people start talking to you about nonsense when you just want to concentrate on your lifts? I’m trying to give it all I’ve got and work up a sweet and here is this man blabbing on and on and on. On top of it, I was so hungry! Obviously I can’t say to go away but that’s what my inside voice was saying!!
Finally arriving home soaked like a wet chicken from all the rain I was ready for lunch! Luckily I had leftover quinoa from yesterday so no cooking required.
Spruced up the quinoa with some garlic salt, cumin, and curry. Chopped up a tomato, added some parsley, and some feta cheese. It was scrumptious! Probably should have had some more protein pwo, but I didn’t feel like making anything and needed to be fed quickly!
Can’t wait for some yummy sushi tonight 😀
After thinking last night about what kind of oats I wanted for breakfast, my boyfriend hinted pb&j oats and I was loving the idea. Yum!
The star of the show:
Oh man one of my best oatmeal dishes to date. Nothing out of the ordinary but it was just creamy and amazing.
Pretty busy day overall between going to job interviews and what not. Went well, so fingers crossed. Definitely good to get a job before I start classes. Must save up!! 😀
Cardio wore me out today. I was debating whether or not going but I feel lazy if I don’t. 30 minutes isn’t a big deal.
Lol ok I didn’t do the treadmill but the elliptical equally worked up a sweat.
hardly ever, ok I just don’t run anymore. Not gonna kid myself. I even bought the couch to 5k app on my iphone and that pretty much went to waste. After week 4 I said f it lol I’m just not a runner. I have no idea what a runner’s high is because I only feel runner’s pain. It’s not even a good leg pain, for some reason my trapezius muscle [gotta throw in a little anatomy pic since I’m a Biology major] starts to give me this shooting intense pain that I can’t seem to shake off.
Either way I was ready to grub on some food when I got home.
Lunch was another yummy success
Dinner on the other hand was complete fail!!! 😦 Grrr my plan was to have crusted Tilapia with a side of Zucchini. Ok well the breadcrumbs were burnt on the outside and the fish was pretty raw on the inside. Ugh disgusting. I just threw everything out and had a bowl of Kashi with yogurt, milk, and strawberries. Cereal always saves the day, I’m such a junkie 🙂
