Holy catfish…really, the weekend is over? What the heck happened?
Man, man, man.
Well I have a protein packed post planned with a bunch of GNC goodness, but honestly, I can’t get it together this morning to do it justice, so it’ll have to wait. Story of my life. Ha.
I talk about the importance of sleep all the time. I KNOW it’s important, especially as an athlete for recovery and everything, yet my night time “office hours” keep extending a little too late. It’s just not okay. I even just reread my own post about about not skimping on sleep. Nice. If you need a reminder that post is here. Dr. Oz talks about how you burn less calories if you don’t get enough sleep.
Time to be honest.
Yesterday my big plans of going to the gym early didn’t happen. We had other potty training things going on over here. and man, talk about time consuming. We’re making some progress though.
So…. I ended up getting on the treadmill at 9:00 pm to sweat out 5 miles. I do not like working out late at night like that. Bleh. At least The Kardashians were on to entertain me.
I have yet to go through my swag bags from the IDEA Fitness Convention that was over a week ago. I need to get on that.
Saturday afternoon I was so tired, I should’ve taken a nap, but instead I tried to get work done and ended up eating way too man snacks to keep me going. I lost track of everything I ate and kept telling myself that I should just go rest instead. I didn’t and found myself with a massive tummy ache about 2 hours later. Dumb. I felt it all day yesterday too. Again, dumb.
I found this little blurb in Health magazine though that might come in useful next time this happens or might be useful to you too.
The cover of the magazine also had this.
Um yeah, I would really like to know because friends, my stomach will never be the same. My belly button points straight out at all times. I hide it from you.
I’ve been switching up my breakfast STUFTwich a bit. Instead of the norm, I’ve been adding a little Smart Balance, Splenda and cinnamon to one half and the sugar free jelly on the other.
I’ve also been changing up the bread a bit. It’s good with a Vitamuffin Vitabun.
But it’s usually on my favorite bread.
I think I have to have one right now actually. Ha.
Oh and….. I’ve been using these Eggo waffles under my low calorie ice cream lately.
(Side note- that frozen frosting never gets old.)
But I’ve got to be honest….. I’m TOTALLY missing my chocolate VItatops A LOT. I hope they have a special sale soon. I have yet to try those Fiber One Chocolate Cookie bars, but I don’t think they’re going to be quite the same.
Yum Hum Dressing
2 tablespoons hummus
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
crushed red pepper (optional)
It was delicious. It was a little thick, but I liked it that way. It went on some spinach and romaine
and was topped with turkey breast.
Then I followed it all up with a big bowl of pumpkin protein cookie dough
made with this GNC egg white protein powder (which is my new favorite thing).
Oh and blueberries.
And well, lastly I’m super behind on posts and mentions and a couple of weeks ago the fabulous people at Honest Tea paid us a very special home visit.
They hooked the STUFT family up.
We’ve got just a little tea and apple juice that we’ve been making our way through.
The boys have been loving the Appley Ever After drinks (for special occasions).
STUFT Daddy has been drinking different teas ever afternoon. His favorite is the new (not too) Sweet Tea, but he’s also been going through the Honey Green Tea.
it’s time to check out the potty scene for the morning and start this day of ours.
Happy Monday friends!
These guys think they’re ready to “go to school” and “ride the bus”.
