A Bombtastic Snack

Today has been a little strange at the office. First off, an employee from a different office came in today to work with my co-worker on a proposal, and at the end, he whipped his camera out and took pictures of Nichole and myself working. I felt like such a dork having to “work” while he took my picture. He wanted candids and no posing, but really, I was technically posing as a “candid worker.” Apparently these pictures will appear in a marketing magazine of some sort. I didn’t catch the name of it, as I believe it was about 20 words long. I could really care less what it’s for; I thrive on having my picture taken. Only when I look good of course.

After my sweet modeling, my stomach asked for some food, and I knew exactly what I was going to make. My base was Fage 2% plain Greek yogurt, mixed in with a tablespoon of my favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter protein powder, and topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberries (holy berries!) and sprinkled with a few sunflower seeds.

Bombtastic!

There were so many different flavors that came out in each bite, that this is now my favorite yogurt concoction. I’m finally getting accustomed to the taste of plain yogurt, quicker than I expected! Okay, well I know it’s not completely plain, but you catch my drift.

The gym was great today, aside from having to pee the entire time, but when you’re crunched for time, it makes more time to hold it and use those extra few minutes to workout instead of wasting it making a trip to the ladies’ room. Priorities people! I wanted an extra few minutes on my run.

Afternoon Workout

  • 1.3 mile run
  • 2 sets of 25 medicine ball sit-ups — this medicine ball weighed a bitchin’ ton!
  • 20 side-to-side medicine ball sit-ups
  • 10 minutes Nordic Trainer
  • Stretching

After my workout I was H-U-N-G-R-Y, and I mean it! I almost contemplated walking to the kitchen before my shower to grab lunch and risk having my coworkers see me drenched in sweat. I powered through it and opted to keep my polished appearance.

Today’s lunch was bombtastic! I made a turkey, ham and spinach sandwich, with a lil bit o’ mustard. On the side I enjoyed home-grown cherry tomatoes and cucumbers, and sugar snap peas.

Pretty Little Lunch

Delish!

I can’t wait for after work. I’d say it on here, but it’s a surprise. Literally! Later gators, catch ya tomorrow!

Xanthan Gum Mystery

This morning I woke up with the same leg pain I had yesterday, but still battled through a 4.1 mile run. It’s amazing how many more miles I can cover by simply setting my alarm 5 minutes earlier.

The weather was my “perfect running weather.” It was a cross between a late summer/early fall morning. Not humid, not chilly, and not hot. Just perfect.

6 am Neighborhood Run

Last night I made a Steak & Mango Scramble for today, but wasn’t quite feeling it for breakfast, so I made my Green Smoothie to bring to work instead. In went my favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter protein, a few slices of frozen banana, a dash of cinnamon, a splash of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze, water, ice and a dash of Xanthan Gum. It wasn’t bad, but I definitely couldn’t stomach finishing it. I’ll have to work on the perfect combo. I’ve only recently started using Xanthan Gum, so trying to make the perfect shake has been tricky. I’ve found it makes my shakes warm. Ick!

When lunch time came around, I was more than ready to tackle my Steak and Mango Scramble, and it HIT the spot!
