I’m a tired girl for some reason today. Thank goodness I’m off work tomorrow and can catch a bit more shut eye if I want.
- 1/3 cup coconut milk and water
- 1/3 cup Quaker Oats
- coconut extract
- pineapple jam
- scoop of homemade maple cinnamon almond butter
My almond butter is almost gone and then I can break into the TJ’s raw almond butter that Julie sent me!
I didn’t even finish them all! And lastly, a Kashi Trail Mix granola bar;
I put all my snacks “together” today because I didn’t eat one thing right through before moving to the next. These lasted me the 8.5 hour shift I worked.
I shook things up in the gym again today because I really didn’t feel like going but knew it would be good for me. I did 30 mins on the elliptical, 10 on the Stairmaster and 10 on the treadmill walking at 4mph at an incline of 4%. I was good and sweaty by the time the sesh was over!
- Time: 50 minutes
- Avg Hr: 156
- Max Hr: 175
- Calories Burned: 440
- Distance on elliptical & ‘mill: 3.9 miles
- red leaf lettuce
- last of the bean mix
- blueberry pomegranate acai dressing
I feel so great after eating such a healthy “green” lunch!
I really hit a wall by 4:30. All I wanted to do was put my head down and sleep. BUT, dinner had to be made so after a quick change of clothes I got started on that. We had BBQ’d pork tenderloin with coconut barley and (more) lettuce!
To make the coconut barley I simply combined 1 cup of water with the last 1/2 cup of coconut milk and added a 1/2 cup of barley when the liquid was boiling. It’s quick cooking barley so it only took about 15 minutes to thicken right up. At the end I added some S&P and a squirt of lime juice. Voila…a fast, scrumptious side dish!!
I’m sipping on a coconut chai tea right now while I blog and once I’m done online I’ll be joining my off spring at the park down the street. I’m trying to cut the apron strings a bit by letting them go there by themselves, but I still get nervous after about 20-30 minutes and usually end up going down. Baby steps!
I hope you all enjoy the evening! Wonder who’s NOT going to make top 10 on SYTYCD tonight?????
Bye for now!
