No, I’m not referring to the short shorts I talked about yesterday in the less than mediocre video I tried to shoot. (Which I’m still on the fence about showing by the way. It’s that bad friends.)
I’m not referring to the fact that I’m short either. I’m 5’2 1/2 though in case you’re wondering. I’ve been the same height since 7th grade. Somehow back then it seemed like I was tall. Go figure.
What I am referring to is my current goal to make my posts shorter. You all really don’t need me blabbing all about my daily happenings. That’s what twitter, instagram and Facebook are for, right? I just need to keep these short for your reading pleasure (and the sanity of my family). I’m purposely working on the laptop right now without it being plugged in so that when the battery is done, so am I.
We’ll see how that works out.
(*Side note- I have since plugged in the computer. I guess that didn’t work out too well.)
Some random after photos from my day.
After teaching my spin class, but before picking up my potty training tots from play care across the hall.
After finally finishing a long day of teaching classes and fitting in a short 3 mile treadmill run.
I’m fairly certain it said no photography in the locker room. I can’t get in trouble for this can I?
I had one heck of a ginormous wrap for lunch.
It was a good mix. It gave me a little bit of heartburn while teaching my classes, but oh well.
Brewer’s yeast is growing on me by the way. I like sprinkling it on different stuff. I’m still waiting for it to miraculously give me thick, shiny hair though.
I followed it with the other half of the almond coconut ice cream recipe I posted yesterday (which turned out a lot creamier tonight for some reason).
But….. that’s not all.
There’s a lot of layers under there.
Want to see?
Well, duh. Of course you do.
The bottom is this new creation I whipped up.
It’s even better.
STUFT Protein Crispy Treat
30 grams GNC vanilla egg white protein powder (or other vanilla protein powder)
12 grams PB2 (2 tablespoons)
10 grams chia
3-5 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce (use enough for desired gooey consistency)
20 grams oats (1/4 cup)
10 grams brown rice cereal (1/3 cup)
Mix everything together well. I like adding the brown rice cereal in at the end so it doesn’t get all mashed up.
*If you do not have PB2, you could probably sub in an additional 10 grams or so of protein powder.
According to MyFitnessPal, here are the stats for this yummy treat.
Not too shabby.
I’m sure you could make it into a cookie form too, but I like to eat mine straight out of the bowl these days with my cool tea spoon.
Oh, and I like to layer things on it.
Things like PB Crave Cookie Nookie and sprinkles.
Things like two ingredient frosting.
That I love finding in the freezer by the way.
It may look like a cow pie, it might be messy and melt in your fingers, but it really doesn’t matter. It’s that great.
Oh, and of course layering with things like that same ice cream from yesterday.
Oh yes, layers can be good. This was so much better than I had expected. (That’s why the pictures are not that great. I took them “just in case”.)
Oh I love layers. I also love layering my Spanx under anything and everything I can.
And that’s it.
See. That was short.
Totally random, but I feel like I have this mindset a lot these days for life. I’m tired every day, but I’ve got big dreams and big goals. I’ve also got two very energetic potty training toddlers that need a lot of attention and a wonderful husband that’s been putting up with a lot of my craziness lately. I’ve got to get it together over here.
Speaking of the hubby….. someone just started another staycation. Family time here we come (until the “racecation” we have this weekend anyway).
Have a good one!
