Happy Humpday! 🙂 YAY! Sooo close to the weekend!

I’ve been in a bit of a food slump lately. I wake up every morning at 4:30, eat a quick breakfast, get ready and I’m at work for 9 hours–not to mention the 30-45 minute commute I make. By the time I get home I don’t have much time to prepare food so I can digest in time to go to the gym, so I find myself making a lot of the same things, hence the constant Veggie repeat. It’s quick…it’s easy…and once again it was my dinner

Gotta love em! Since I’ve officially made summer squash and zucchini a staple in my diet, I looked up a few assuring facts about them-

  • Great source of Vitamin C & Potassium
  • Full of anti-oxidants
  • Promote Good Heart Health

The list goes on and on! I was definitely surprised and happy to read that research shows zucchini’s improve metabolism and help in preventing lung cancer. Ummm WOW! I have no idea if this is true or not but being an ex-smoker and all, I’ve decided that the zucchini is here to STAY!

I made a lovely Green Smoothie today

  • Spinach
  • Oats
  • Almond Milk
  • Frozen Banana
  • White Chocolate Peanut Butter (yumm)

Before we went to the gym tonight I did about 10 minutes of abs and did tricep kickbacks with my 8 weights.  At the gym I did:

  • 10 min. Eliptical w/Resisitance
  • 20 min Treadmill Incline 7 (ouch)
  • 3×10 Bicep Curls 10 LBS
  • 3×10 Triceps 10 LBS
  • 3×10 Deadlifts w/10 LB Bicep Curl

I’ve never done an incline of 7 on the treadmill before–it was kinda fun being up that high, but I could definitely feel the difference and I worked up a good sweat!

When I got home I was feeling a little creative and happened to have a Red Bell Pepper that I didn’t want to go to waste so I created a little snack

I don’t quite know what to call it yet so it is what it is…Spinach, Red Bell Pepper & hummus! It was delicious AND nutrtious as the peppers are another veggie full of disease fighting anti-oxidants and a bunch of vitamins and minerals! Plus I thought it looked pretty! 🙂

After my little snack I had a great cookie for dessert from Country Choice Organic. They’re made from pure organic ingredients! Ugh, it was so soft and melted in my mouth–I’m not a fan of had cookies, this was perfect!
