Hi! How was your Labor Day? It flew by didn’t it? I guess that’s just like every day though over here. Ha.
I’m always sitting here trying to figure out what to write about with so many stinking thoughts running through my head. Not to mention I have a million other things I really should be doing.
A little look at my Labor Day.
The boys and I were out the door early. I scarfed down my cinnamon sugar breakfast STUFTwich in the car after I dropped the boys off at Grandma D and Papap’s house.
My cinnamon coconut Americano that I made with a new Peet’s coffee sample was along for the ride also.
Gotta love the classy kiddie cup.
I had to teach a Y0X class at the Y for a special Labor Day workout in the morning and then from there I made my way to a different gym to go for a quick little treadmill jog and teach my usual Monday spin class. It was quite the start to my day. And I had quite the Clif Bar variety in my gym bag (or rather in my lap) to choose from for a little on the go snack.
I went with the Chocolate Almond Coconut just in case you’re wondering.
I was tired and starving by the time I was finally making my way to the car after all that workout business.
Luckily the boys were tired enough they decided to nap for me when we got home.
While they napped, I created the biggest veggie Flatout wrap ever. Check it out.
I really have a skill, don’t you think? Holy Batman this was good.
I posted the wrap contents on instagram, but here you go just in case you missed it- green leaf lettuce, spinach, cucumber, tomato, red onion, shredded carrots, pepperoncinis, a jalapeño, Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning and some Yum Hum Dressing.
You can safely assume I’ll be eating this again for the next 3-5 days for lunch.
Then I had a little “labor” intensive task on the home front that I’ve been putting off for quite some time.
Don’t be scared of the following pictures.
Why do I show you this stuff? It’s embarrassing.
Instead of getting right to work, I thought I’d snap a few pictures of my sweaty self first.
I still wasn’t ready to face things head on and decided I needed a little pick me before I tackled the mess. I whipped this bad boy up in my Vita. (Don’t mind the bird doody on the railing.)
Mocha Protein Smoothie
1 serving GNC chocolate soy protein powder
1/2 frozen banana
sweetener (optional- I added a little sugar free Torani almond syrup)
1 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
pinch xanthan gum (optional- for thickening)
pinch guar gum (optional- for thickening)
One more picture of my greasy forehead with my smoothie and I got to work.
I made some progress although I don’t have photographic proof. But… it may be safe to assume if things are really quiet here for the next 24 hours I’ve gotten lost somewhere in the red room (that’s what we call it).
Goodness help me though, this month I AM going to organize that room.
It was the most delicious little “frosting”. (Exact measurements: 1 tablespoon coconut flour, 2 tablespoons PB2, 1/2-1 teaspoon brown sugar, 5 drops liquid vanilla stevia, enough soy milk to get desired consistency.)
It went down a little more like this though.
Hey, did happen to notice my cool tank top? I thought you did.
I recently got a wonderful package from my favorite Handful bra company.
I’m obviously a huge fan of the original Handful bra (you can read my full review here). I wear mine everywhere and when I’m not wearing one of my special bras, you better believe I’ve got an extra set of Handful bra pads with me. Ha ha.
They just launched some new products that are freaking fabulous.
Both of these new products have the same wonderful design (and pads) as the original bra, but they also have adjustable straps that can be worn regular or crossed in back.
The boys wanted to make sure the got to show their Handful love too (and their dirty faces).
Judah’s big into helping with laundry, so obviously the cute little laundering bags are his favorite. And obviously there was a good reason he’s not wearing pants in this picture.
and my little shopping excursion afterwards.
I may or may not have also worn it that very next day on the treadmill.
(I am really out to impress today, aren’t I?)
For Labor Day I wore the purple tank and tried to snap a few pictures outside for you all in the wee hours of the morning.
Whoa, maybe a little too close.
That’s a little better even though it looks like I’m about to pop a squat or something. Lovely.
Check out the cool back though. I tried to be fancy and make the straps cross.
Again with the squat. Come on lady. Oh well. The important thing is that I love these tank tops.
And you can check out this cute video explaining their new products. (No, that is not me.)
Um, yeah, in the video they show how you can stack your pads more than one at a time in the bra. Why haven’t I done that yet? I’m on it for next time.
And well, since I’ve got my “hands full” with my little office project for the next few days, I have a little something for you.
See these pads here?
They’re brand new, came in my special package and are up for grabs.
I wish I was a size medium, but I’m not friends. I’m just not.
So I have a pair of medium pads I want to give to one of you.
Just leave me a comment here telling me whatever you want. If you can’t think of anything just tell me what you did over the holiday weekend or where you want to wear these awesome pads.
I’m warning you in advance I may not respond since I have comments and emails from last week I’m still working on. I’ll read (I always do, every single one), but I may not get to write back.
I’ll pick a winner Thursday morning and announce in Thursday’s post.
I just LOVE these bras. Seriously, they’ve changed my life and I wear either the bras or pads pretty much on a daily basis.
Okay, I’m off. Have a wonderful day!!!!!
