I loved hearing that some of you tried my egg/ almond butter get up from last week! Yes, the thought and looks of this are NOT pretty but don't knock it till you try it.
So here we go, yo.
First things first.
Bottoms up. If you missed why I drink this, you can read about it here.
Today, I shook things up and started with the SweetTart along with 3 Catalyst.
Breakfast was one of my faves. This only happens when everything aligns perfectly and I have a peanut butter jar with the perfect amount left, just begging for oatmeal.
Here we have remnants of TJ's natural PB, 1/2 c of steel cut oatmeal, cinnamon, and stevia. With a side of 3 Omegaplex.
I cook the oatmeal separately with the cinnamon and splenda. I then add it to the PB jar. It basically ends up in a delish, melty mound of PB/ Oatmeal goodness. And it keeps me full forevs.
Around 11 a.m. was a Spark/ Catalyst on the go.
And then around 11:45, of course another Simple Truth protein bar. I seriously love these. Especially for the price. Kroger- 5 for $4.
Lunch, out of tupperware. Partially because I'm classy like that but partially because on work days, I never know if I'm going to be eating on the go, at a restaurant, or at home. Spinach, strawberries, pepper jack cheese, a boiled egg, hummus, almonds, and balsamic vinaigrette. Super random, yes. But I'm a sucker for the sweet/ salty thing. And sometimes the best salads are the ones with a bunch of randomness thrown in.
Back at the ranch, I had a few slices of watermelon. #addicted.
Before the gym I had another Spark and 2 Thermoplus.
45 min of HIIT on the arc trainer (kinda like the elliptical, but I hate it less.) Fyi- a HIIT workout on the arc will have you dripping in sweat. My knees were barking today and running was outta the question. HIIT on the arc it was.
Post workout. Another favorite combo that I've mentioned a million times.
Muscle Gain and unsweetened almond milk. With a ton of ice, this is an amazing combo.
As I was figuring out dinner, all hell broke loose. The 3 year old had the meltdown of 2013 (source of meltdown is still unknown) at the exact same time that #Runnerdog chose to leave a giant stream of pee across the living room carpet. Now he hasn't had an accident of this caliber since his early days. And really, the 3 year old hasn't had a meltdown like this possibly ever. So the combo together was a sight to be seen.
So I did what any rational mom would do and I poured a glass of Pinot Grigio. Or Two.
Dinner was baked tilapia with hot sauce (obvi), green beans, and a baked sweet potato with butter and cinnamon (again..obvi).
So there you have it. Riveting, no?
Stay tuned for Thursday Thoughts as well as a long overdue running playlist.
See ya on the flip.
