Well, I don’t have any pictures of My Trainer Bob and I from yesterday’s video shoot, but I do have some fun things that happened, a little What I Ate Wednesday action, a couple of other random things, a new dairy free broccoli slaw concoction and a Love Grown Foods winner.
Whoa that’s a lot. I better get cracking.
Right now I’m bringing in spring with a very strong STUFT salted caramel mocha in my cute seasonal mug.
Want to see what’s going on in the background of this picture?
Ha ha. Nala sure wants that dove. He and his mate are hang out at our house every single day.
This Muddy Waters coffee is pretty good stuff.
Speaking of kitchen appliances, I also have a brand new Cuisinart Griddler thanks to Costco’s fabulous return policy. I took in mine that I got a couple Christmases ago that stopped working and they credited my account so I could get a brand new one.
I love Costco. While I was there I also purchased a couple new finds:
Don Lee Farms Veggie Patties
and Hemp Hearts.
I haven’t tried either of these things yet, but I sure am excited about them.
One thing I don’t have after that Costco trip is toilet paper which we desperately need. Ugh. I hate that.
On to a little What I Ate Wednesday and my recap with “my boyfriend”.
I was only 40 minutes late after sitting in 3 hours of LA traffic. Way to impress Kristin. Luckily they were running late also.
I was starving by the time I got there so I had a banana from their food table (not pictured).
After we shot the workout I made a trip to Starbucks from my favorite green tea latte drink.
It’s definitely not a regular green tea latte. Can you figure out what it is?
I also had some Trader Joe’s lite air popped popcorn.
Then I broke down and had this monster of a Supreme Protein Bar. I’d gone three weeks without any dairy and packed this bar in case of emergency.
Well, that emergency happened since it took me over 3 hours to get home also. Ugh.
I have to say I was a little worried about the bar, but my tummy seemed to handle it pretty well. Yay!
After a late night treadmill run while watching the new show Bent, I came up this BBQ broccoli slaw bake.
I think it’s going to be my new thing. I’ve been wanting to try a little something like this for some time and last night I finally did. The result was impressive so I thought I’d share. You know, since you haven’t seen broccoli slaw in awhile and all.
Broccoli Slaw BBQ Bake
one bag broccoli slaw
seasoning- garlic salt, garlic powder, pepper, sea salt, cayenne
Spray a pan with nonstick spray. Spread broccoli slaw on pan. Spray slaw with cooking spray and add seasonings.
Top with chicken, the jalapeño (if using) and some BBQ sauce. (My favorite BBQ sauce is TATS Original Black Dahlia.)
Roast in the oven at 400 (or 375 convection) for about 15-20 minutes.
Note- I think this would also be good with Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce (similar to this cauliflower bake).
I finished the night off with a little soy sandwich from Trader Joe’s.
Oops, I got a little to excited about the broccoli slaw (I do that sometimes) I forgot to recap my Bob workout.
Here you go.
I didn’t even take any pictures this time because I was trying to play it cool.
I reclaimed my usual spot in front right by my main man.
I was the designated “advanced girl”. He he. I love that.
Before we started taping he turned to me and told me he expected excellence out of me. My immediate thought was that I should’ve had a stronger mocha and gotten a little more sleep.
The workout we did was a little different. It was similar to CrossFit in that it was AMRAP (as may reps as possible).
It was 4 moves repeated for 7 minutes and you kept track of how many rounds you did. I really like the idea behind it. Those 7 minutes were pretty darn long.
My plan to play it cool must have worked because when I talked to him after the workout he told me he wants to do a one on one with me. I wanted to jump up and down and hug him, but again I played it cool and simple said that that would be awesome. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it plays out. How cool would that be? Ahhhh!!!!!
Here’s the link to the promo for the new Online Fitness Club that’s launching soon with all these videos I’ve been taping.
Just in case you missed it, I’m in this video a couple times.
I promise I won’t post it any more.
We also had a quick discussion about how 100 calorie snack packs are pretty much junk. Save your money and stay away from processed foods.
In case you need another reason to skip the packaged stuff, I found this article the other day on Shape.com. I’ve totally experienced the post processed foods grumpiness first hand. Click here to check it out.
Okay, I think that’s about it besides announcing the winner of the Love Grown Foods Granola giveaway.
Thanks to random.org …..
JennyV- You’re the winner! Yay!

Okay friends. That’s all. Dang this post ended up being a lot longer than I anticipated.
See you tomorrow.
What you got?
