I hope you’re having a great Thursday
I missed blogging yesterday but it was a busy one. In fact, I was gone from 8:30 am until 9:30 pm. Sheesh!
First, the picture I promised:
Yesterday morning I taught Pump on a sore knee. Usually I do about 20-30 minutes of cardio to warm-up, but I skipped it yesterday. I was having a hard enough time walking! It seemed to go okay, and I went down a bit in weight just to be sure I wouldn’t make things worse.
I didn’t pack much food yesterday (we need a real grocery trip!), so I picked up a smoothie from the health food store post-workout. I also packed carrots + hummus, an apple, cottage cheese, and a bar. It ended up being a perfect amount of food!
I worked the day away, then trained some clients and taught a boxing class. By the time I left, I was wiped…but not too wiped to pass up meeting my in-laws for dinner. We had a light bite (salmon salad for me) and sat outside. It was a gorgeous evening.
This morning I trained my early morning group, did some admin work, taught boxing class, then hopped on the elliptical for a 30-minute sweat with the May issue of Runner’s World. I finished with some stretching before heading home to knock out my to-do list.
•1/2 cup plain kefir
•1/2 cup fresh OJ
•1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
•5 frozen strawberries
•1/4 cup frozen raspberries
•1/4 cup frozen blueberries
•1/4 cup frozen mango
•1/4 cup frozen pineapple
Blend all and enjoy!
This was tangy and delicious! It also made a jumbo smoothie that kept me full for multiple hours.
I got some things done then picked up Amber to go visit our friend Julie who had a baby girl 2-weeks ago. The two of us chatted and snuggled the bundle of joy for over an hour and it was such a fun time! Newborn babies are just so gosh darn adorable
I had to run a few errands before heading home to hang with Colin. We were both craving something easy for dinner and decided on a meal from the depths of our freezer.
I tossed some frozen chicken strips (we like these) and baked french fries (we like these) and threw together a salad. In about 25-minutes dinner was served! This tasted better than fast-food and really hit the spot.
Okay, I’m off!
I have a busy weekend…going away party, baby shower, and plans with friends.
See ya soon
Eat homemade “fast-food” and treats. By making them at home you can portion out a single serving to eat a moderate amount and control what ingredients you use!
Question: Do you have a favorite “fast-food” you make at home?
