Took a 45 minute spin class (fun to take one for a change rather than teach)
Stair mill 30 minutes (random setting)
Elliptical 45 minutes (random setting)
Got a good sweat in. Tossed around the idea of trying to jog on the treadmill, but my leg just isn’t ready yet.
I really should stop taking post workout pictures. They never come out well. That one from yesterday, seriously? I can’t get that off the front page of the blog fast enough.
But, I should tell you that I wore my Halo Headband yesterday and there are only 2 days left to use the code FBSHIP from the Halo Headband Facebook Page to get FREE shipping on any of their products! The code expires Monday.
There is also a little time to enter the buffalo jerky giveaway (ends tonight). I snacked on some on the road yesterday.
I should have mailed a couple packs of jerky to my friend. I didn’t.
I like eating away our profits instead. Ha.
The 1 oz. size is the perfect little snack size though. Just saying. It’s under 100 calories and has 15 grams of protein.
Well shoot, Andrew and I should be on our way to Boston right now. We are not.
I should be telling you all about the amazing LEGOLAND Hotel. I am not.
I should’ve written a really great post yesterday for Mom since it was her birthday. I did not. Dang it, I better make it up to her big time with a belated birthday surprise. Last year it was all about the fudgy STUFT protein cookie dough (also a day late).
This year, the day before her birthday she bought me flowers.
That’s just silly. Aren’t they pretty though?
I should have made a really great dinner for Andrew last night since he’s been spoiling me and giving me lots of time to get things done around the house. I did not.
We did have some really great cheap wine though from Trader Joe’s and opened up a brand new bottle of Scotty B’s Arch Nemesis hot sauce.
We had BBQ chicken quesadillas in case you’re wondering.
The other day the boys and I went to make Jenn’s Peanut Butter Balls and I should’ve checked to make sure we had enough of all the ingredients first. I didn’t and we did not.
But, in subbing some shredded coconut for the nonfat milk powder we came up with what might be our favorite balls yet. A little coconut, SunButter and chocolate chips. You just can’t go wrong, right?
Here you go. You need to try these. Even STUFT Daddy approves and that’s a pretty big deal around here.
Better STUFT Nut Butter Balls
1 cup agave
1 cup SunButter
1 cup oats
3/4 cup cereal
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 1/2 cups nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 cup finely shredded coconut
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients together. Scoop into balls and refrigerate in air tight container.
*Make sure to hide a couple in the freezer for yourself when the craving strikes because they’ll be gone fast.
I used old fashioned oats. I also used Barbara’s Shredded Spoonfuls as the cereal (picture below).
I’m sure other cereal and other nut butters would work, but the combination of SunButter, agave and this cereal was just perfect with the coconut and chocolate chips.
Here’s the Barbara’s Multigrain Shredded Spoonfuls cereal I used.
Seriously. The best ball yet.
I want to experiment a bit with subbing in protein powder and sugar free maple syrup, but these were a huge hit.
Who needs Boston when you have these balls around?
(I’m going to just keep telling myself that the next few days. Bare with me.)
Hope your weekend is off to a great start!
Do you have some favorite balls?
