I’m an awesome food blogger and repeat meals and snacks most weekdays, it’s pretty impressive to be this boring. However, it’s super healthy, cheap and tastes amazing so that’s all that really matters right? Breakfast & mid-morning snack:
It was absolutely gorgeous out yesterday so I switched my boots to my sneaks and headed out for a walk on my lunch with my coat, leggings, and the flowy top I wore to work because it was just going to be a casual stroll to soak up some sun and move the legs.. I felt so amazing and suddenly decided it was time for a run. It was one of the best outdoor runs I’ve ever had. I looked semi-normal since all you could see was my coat, leggings & sneaks… I knew it was a different situation underneath since my shirt and lack of sports bra were serving as my workout clothes. I don’t care, that run was legendary. I felt like my legs couldn’t stop even if I wanted them to. I took some pics to show how excited and awesome I look while running in a work outfit:
Insane. I politely used 80 paper towels in the bathroom to wipe off my sweat and came back looking like I hadn’t just ran a 3 miler on my break. I used to do it almost every day over the summer, but I came prepared with gym clothes and always knew I was going to be running. Refueled with an oatmeal mess (another delicious money saver!):
While walking home I had a Chobani mixed with PB2 and almonds again.. didn’t get a picture because I was walking and eating, a pretty common occurrence in my life. I will most likely get hit by a car because I am too busy enjoying my afternoon snack to look up and pay attention to traffic.
I had thought about roasting broccoli for the 1st time all day, but when I got home I remembered I had a 6 AM weight training session with the trainer at me and Caitlin’s gym… I also remembered how broccoli makes me 100x more gassy than usual, so I decided to roast green beans and a sweet potato instead! John came home to find me smiling and spraying my veggies away while dumping 80 pounds of garlic on them (I guess I didn’t care about garlic sweating through my pours at my weight session!). Please ignore my lack of bra wearing because my boobs are almost non-existent these days (MY FAVORITE PART OF LOSING WEIGHT!)
Dinner= roasted green beans with ketchup & parm cheese, sweet potato, salmon with goat cheese & mustard with a side of mushrooms, green peppers and hummus. Veggie-licious.
I have not been hitting my quota of 567 grams of protein a day lately, and my arm muscles are SERIOUSLY almost gone. That and the fact that I hadn’t lifted weights in weeks before this morning. So I had a little dessert of cottage cheese (tons of protein), frozen bloobs and sugar free maple syrup. I think I saw John gag at this concoction, but don’t knock it til you try it.
I’m still feeling a little under the weather, but I was up by 4:30 this morning and got my butt to the gym for an awesome workout! I can’t wait to write about it tomorrow, and I can guarantee I will barely be able to type it because I will be SORE!
Do you ever roast vegetables/ potatoes?
This was my first time roasting vegetables, I think I’m in love. I love making baked sweet potato fries and I am making my 1st batch of butternut squash baked fries tonight!
Any fun weekend plans?
