Needed: A Handsome Man to Bring Me Chicken Noodle Soup

My throat is more sore and my ass is sore and I had a midnight snack last night and there are so many ands in this sentence that my college English professor would cringe at, but I’m sick and everything gets thrown out the window and I’m allowed to write run-on sentences if I want to.

Sadly that’s not how it works. Bad days, sick days, kick ass days. It doesn’t matter what kind of day you have, there’s no excuse to stray from your healthy and smart ways. I could sit here and kick myself for snacking in the middle of the night (I won’t tell you that I demolished some peanut butter), but at this moment it’s a new hour and a new day and nowhere to look but forward.

I took it easy on my morning run since I’m a little under the weather and didn’t want to overdue it. I ran 3 miles and followed up with weights while jamming out to my Justin Bieber Pandora station. Seriously guys, you can make fun of me all you want but his station really pumps me up for workouts!

Side note dudes and dudettes. If this post looks “off” or not formatted, it’s because I’m blogging from my phone and we all know I hate writing lengthy things on this mofo. As a member of the grammar police, typos bug the shit out of me so if I have any, please ignore . I have absolutely no idea how to check my grammar on this sucker. 🙂

What I could really use is a cute boyfriend or just any delicious man to bring me a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup and crackers and then massage my shoulders and head.

So if you want to lend me your hunky boyfriend or know of any single men, send them my way… just make sure they bring me soup!

The Circus is in Town!

Wow, talk about a wild Wednesday, but before I even begin to get to the best parts, let me recap my afternoon workout. One word: tough! Yesterday’s R.I.P.P.E.D class caught up with my quickly, resulting in a struggle of a 1.5 mile run, sending my total mileage to 5 miles.

I contemplated hitting the stair master or the elliptical, but didn’t want to overwork my midget sore legs too much, so I hit the spinning room for a quick and tough 15 minute ride. I dripped more sweat in my personal 15 minute spin workout than I have in a 45 minute instructed spin class. Looks like there’s a new instructor in town suckas!

No core or strength workouts this afternoon, mainly because I was tight on time and already did my arms yesterday.

My stomach was a rumbling during my ride and wolfed down my leftover honey bbq grilled chicken and steamed carrots after showering up.

I work in an old mill building that has active trail tracks in between our building and where we have to park/Gold’s Gym. 5 minutes before leaving work, we heard the train crossing beep whatever the hell that’s called. Jen then yelled, “the circus is in town!”

Ha ha ha, she thinks she’s funny.

Guess what? The circus is in town. No, really, it is, and the trains carrying the animals stopped RIGHT in front of our path to get to our cars. Seriously!

The arena that puts on the show is several blocks down the road and apparently every year the trains block everyone in our buildings in, causing us to have to walk down the road, cross the street, and then walk back up the road to our cars. It’s basically one LONG ass walking U-turn.

Earlier today I was really craving those pumpkin pancakes, but after work I had absolutely zero appetite so I decided to run errands instead. An hour and a half and I couldn’t find Chia Seeds or Laughing Cow Cinnamon Cream Cheese Spread. I struck out completely! 😦 2 grocery stores failed me, but at least I have one last option tomorrow.

Do you guys have to go to multiple grocery stores to buy all your essentials?

When I got home, I whipped up breakfast for lunch tomorrow. Confuse you? I’m loving the breakfast foods for all meals lately. 🙂

Since I used all of the cottage cheese, I couldn’t make the Pumpkin Protein Pancakes, so I made the Banana-Oatmeal Pancakes in the latest issue of Fitness Magazine.

Banana-Oatmeal Pancakes (Fitness Magazine)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups soy milk
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 bananas, chopped
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp baking powder

Directions

  1. In a blender, puree soy milk and oats until smooth. Add bananas, flour, 1/2 tsp kosher salt, and baking powder and puree a few seconds more. Let batter rest 10 minutes.
  2. Heat a large nonstick saute pan over medium heat and cook pancakes to your desired consistency.
  3. Top with sliced bananas and maple syrup or toppings of your choice.

These make 8 pancakes, but I decided to cut the recipe in half and came out with 4 pancakes.

 

Semi-final product:

I cannot wait to douse these mofos in syrup tomorrow! I’m thinking this will be my post-workout lunch.

Off to watch the season premier of Modern Family. I love me some Phil Dunphy! ❤
