Three months. That is absolutely crazy. It is also the middle of my third week at work – well, technically it should be the end of my 3rd week since I worked over the weekend. But I will be using my comp days for Hawaii in November so I can’t really complain!
I really need to integrate more weight-lifting into my workout routine so I started using the book The New Rules of Weightlifting for Women. Today was my first workout from the book (after a 2 mile run) and I can already tell it’s going to be a great addition to my routine! The book urged you to have a protein-powder smoothie/recovery drink after the workout so I happily obliged this morning. I made my favorite Pineapple-Mango Smoothie with a 1/2 scoop Raw Protein Powder added in. I’m not really a fan of the taste, but I need more protein so I’ve got to do it.
Overnight oats – just can’t get enough of them! I also added 1/2 a scoop of protein powder in these and topped with a nectarine, blueberries, ground flax and sunbutter. For some reason this did not sit with me too well… Maybe a mixture between the protein powder and sunbutter?
Leftovers from dinner last night. I’m keeping Sami’s Bakery in business! We made a pizza topped with Mama Pea’s Hummus (from her new cookbook!) and curry. So delicious. Last night we topped it with lettuce, but I had a side of baby carrots and a hard-boiled egg instead. Also had another nectarine and watermelon – lovin the summer fruit!
I brought two rice cakes with PB2+J. I don’t care if it makes me a child, I could have peanut butter and jelly every single day. So good.
Grilled out tonight! It actually felt like fall here rather than mid-August but I am definitely not complaining – fall is my favorite season! Had sweet potato fries + garden green beans on the side. And of course homemade pickles! My new favorite :). Another new favorite? Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt and Turbinado Sugar Covered Almonds. Oh my word. Had a handful of those after dinner…
Happy Hump Day everyone! I’m back to getting caught up on all the blog posts I missed this past weekend – only 4o more to go!
