Peppermint Fro-Ro Date

Last night Lindsay and I met up for our bi-weeklyish “fro-yo for dinner” date. We emailed throughout the morning dreaming and talking about fro-ro.Catch that slip up? I actually typed that without looking and couldn’t stop laughing when I said it out loud, so for laughs, the typo is totally staying.

I mentioned that I was hoping they’d have several holiday themed flavors, especially peppermint, so I was thrilled when we walked in and they had Candy Cane yogurt! They also had Eggnog, but that just disgusted me, so I stuck with half Candy Cane and half California Tart. A winning combo! I was hoping for graham cracker toppings but had no luck, so I stuck with a few Oreo crumbles, and then played it safe with my fav, rainbow jimmies!

After talking for about 20 minutes, we called it a wrap and each finished up our evenings full of laundry, cleaning, cooking and grocery shopping. We’re fun girls!

I headed next door into the grocery store to pick up a grapefruit since I was so depressed without one yesterday morning, and an avocado for a little healthy fat to include in today and Friday’s meals.

After prepping food I hopped on the treadmill for a quick 1-mile walk while I read my new book, What Happens at Christmas, which unknowingly to me, is set in 1886. Total fail! Not the type of romance I want in a book. I’m giving it a shot, who knows, maybe I’ll like it. In fact, yesterday Jaime and I were just discussing books and how she’s reading a classic, East of Eden. I mentioned I wanted to read a classic too, and I know this one isn’t necessarily a classic, but I should get a little credit since it takes place so damn long ago!

This morning I enjoyed THE juiciest grapefruit, along with a peanut butter protein shake, and enjoyed a clean egg scramble later in the morning. Into my scramble went 1 egg and 2 egg whites, half of an avocado, a handful of spinach, and a spoonful of pineapple salsa.

This scramble was so good and the addition of pineapple salsa really added a nice touch. Yum!

Morning Workout

  • 4.1 mile run
  • 3 sets of 15 stair push-ups
  • 1 minute plank hold
  • 50 heel touchers
  • 50 scissors
  • 50 crunches and 50 side-to- side crunches
  • 30 toe touches
  • Stretching

Not a bad morning workout, although my legs started to feel a little heavy at times, but it might just be overuse.

This afternoon I have a fun workout full of Smith Machine squats, lunges, and arm work. I’m continuing on my goal to eat as clean as possible today. I do so well during the day, but after dinner, all hell breaks loose. I think I might have to save my Chobani bowls for a nighttime dessert.

Do you guys have any tips on eating healthy at night or healthy treats you enjoy after dinner?

This girl needs help!

    seriously, night time eating will be the death of me too. i do pretty well most of the time but when i do it, i feel like i cant stop! i usually just alott myself a snack after dinner like a protein mug cake with some PB and thats usually enough plus healthy and around 200 calories!

    That’s a good idea, a healthy version of dessert! I need to bring more food to work because at 4 I always get hungry and by the time I’m out at 5 I eat everything at site and spoil dinner haha
