This is going to be SUPER fast tonight–just going to post some quick snacks I had today!

I’m determined to get some sleep tonight and I’m already running behind schedule and I want to make sure I rest up because tomorrow is technically my FRIDAY! 🙂 OH yaaaaaaa! I’m taking a 4 day weekend

#1 Because Suday is my birthday and I thought it’d be fun

#2 Because I freaking deserve it! I get up @ 4:30 every morning and have been working overtime in the office this week…So I’m taking a mini VACA!

I have to do a little bragging–The Boo officially named today’s Green Smoothie my best! He does a little taste testing on most of them and for the most part enjoys them all, yet he still refuses to make any of his with veggies!

I don’t know what was so different about it–I used my go to mix today…

  • Almond Milk
  • Spinach
  • Oats
  • Frozen Banana
  • Flax
  • Ice

But there WAS something about it that made it more enjoyable! I think it was thicker than usual which I LOVE–not a big fan of when it’s juice-like.

Anyway I had some more of my yummy Mini Quiche today

Gym tonight was super successful, much better than yesterday! I did some running and walking on the treadmill and lifted some weights–I felt good and was ready to treat myself to an awesome dessert tonight!

A DELICIOUS vitamuffin from Vitalicious! They are Muffic Tops–how clever is THAT? They’re also ONLY 100 calories! I’m so glad that I found these and got to try them because I’ve always been a Muffin Top eater (lol that sounds funny), I’d always buy a muffin but just eat the top. Now it works out perfectly!

OK I’m pooped and I need to get some beauty sleep for my long weekend! 🙂 Hope you all had a WONDERFUL day!

Goodnight!

Today has been 1 looooooong day! I haven’t been feeling too well and I’m pretty sure it’s because I need to catch up on my sleep–I wake up everyday at 4:30 and I’ve been getting to bed pretty late.

This morning I had a super light super weird breakfast since I wasn’t in the mood for anything really and I think I was half asleep when I put it together

12food 002

Yep that’s right…a boca Cheeseburger with Eggwhites! Like i said…I think I was still asleep! 🙂 Oh and I of course had my Rachael Ray mag to wake me up a bit! LOVE HER!

So I dragged myself to work today and brought along some turkey and hummus as well as a Mini Quiche from the other night!

Todays gym trip was not very successful as I think I pushed myself a little too hard on the treadmill and got a bit light-headed. I ended up getting off after 15 minutes, went to the eliptical and did about 5 minutes on there and was Donzo! I’ll call today my rest day! 🙂

So I got home and wanted a little snackie to hold me over until dinner and I grabbed one of the bags I recieved from Kay’s Naturals

I was really excited to try these after reading about their products:

Kay’s is dedicated to bringing a better alternative to traditional snacks and cereals to the health and fitness conscious consumer. Our products are delicious, made with all-natural soy protein and high-fiber. These products can help to sustain energy, manage weight loss, and stabilize blood sugar. They are an option for all ages and lifestyles and for anyone seeking sources of protein in their diets, including people with diabetes, bariatric patients, body builders, vegetarians, the elderly, and children. They are ideal for the office, sports, on the road, and at home.

The package that I recieved had such a great variety that it was so hard to pick

but after selecting the Cinnamon Toast Pretzel Sticks I was NOT disappointed! Let me put it this way…they were like mini healthy, protein filled churros! 🙂 How could you not like that? I opened the bag only wanting to have a little taste before I started making dinner

12food 027

Before I knew it I was done and surprisingly satisfied! I didn’t feel bad finishing the bag at all since it only has:

  • 120 Calories
  • 9 g Carbs
  • 6 g Sugar
  • 10 g Protein <—Yep!!  How great is that? Not to mention it’s Gluten Free!

 

I can’t wait to try the other bags! Like I’ve said before, I am a HUGE cereal girl, absolutely LOVE it and could eat it probably for every meal throughout the day! So I’m pretty excited to try some — I have my eye on the French Vanilla for tomorrow morning YAY! I’ll for sure let you guys know how they are!

So I put off din din for a while since I wasn’t too hungry and I decided to use my 8 LB weights  for

  • 3×10 Bicep Curls
  • 3×10 Dead Lifts w/ Hammer Curls
  • 3×10 Lunges w/ Bicep Curl
  • 10 minutes of Abs

I guess I made up for my lack of energy at the gym!

Once I got hungry I decided to make another round of some yummy veggies

12food 003

  • Squash
  • Zucchini
  • Musrooms

I just sprayed some PAM on the pan and sauteed for a bit! The Boo made some chicken and slapped it on top of my beautiful veggies just in time for a picture

12food 005

I only ate about 1/4 of the chicken, mostly just stuck to the veggies!

I’m finally done blogging earlier tonight! I think I might cuddle up with The Boo for a bit and RELAX…what an idea! 🙂

Goodnight!

Happy Sunday–I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

Wow am I tired! It’s been a long weekend and I’m super excited to catch up on some beauty sleep tonight…I have a long week ahead of me.

Friday night The Boo and I were planning on going out with some friends of ours after work–I didn’t feel like I’d have enough time to go to the gym so i did a little workout of my own at home.

  • 2 min. running full speed on treadmill
  • 5 min. strength training
  • 2 min. running full speed on treadmill
  • 5 min. strength training

I repeated this for about 45 min to an hour and boy was I pooped! I was kinda bummed at first that I wouldn’t be getting a good workout in before a night of drinks and yummy food, but I definitely burned some major calories!

Later that night before meeting up with our friends I tried some Newman’s Own Organics  Apricots–I’m obsessed!

Quiche 045

These are so delicious and so convenient for me since I’m such a snacker–they’re a nice little treat when I start getting picky and don’t know what to eat. I found that these definitely satisfy my sweet tooth and munchie behavior! I can’t wait to try some others…

Quiche 046

So Friday night with the friends was a BLAST! We went to El Torito and had some Mojito’s (YUM) while we were serenaded by many karaoke singers–toooooo funny! We then headed to Capri Blu a cute little bistro and wine bar–we went there for a drink and to hear a good friend of ours sing. I tried my first EVER martini, filthy martini to be exact…don’t know if I’ll be trying it again, twas a bit strong for my liking!

Sat morning we forced ourselves to get up and get our butts to the gym–I always feel it’s a necessity after a night of alcohol and greasy food! I did my usual routine–walking on an incline with the occasionl run!

Sat night we decided to try something new and make out own homeade SANGRIA!

Quiche 009

We put some frozen fruit at the bottom of the pitcher and poured in some Merlot–it actually turned out pretty yummy!

Quiche 015

Breakfast this morning was DELICIOUS–I haven’t had oatmeal in a while so I made an amazing bowl with

  • Almond Milk
  • Oats
  • Honey
  • Scoop of Almond Butter
  • 1/2 Banana

Quiche 017

LOVED IT!

Anyway tonight I made one of my favorites–Mini Quiche! They’re such a great light snack!

I started by sauteeing Spinach and Mushroom

Quiche 029

Combined it into a bowl with the following

  • 1/4 cup onions
  • 3/4 cup egg substitute
  • 3/4 cup shredded jack cheese (I used Mozzarella)

Quiche 031

Mixed everything together and evenly spooned it into a muffin tin that I sprayed with PAM

Quiche 042

I popped them into the over at 350 for about 20 minutes till they look fluffy and delicious–kinda like this

Quiche 056

These are super popular with The South Beach crowd–low carbs and calories!

For dessert tonight I just couldn’t resist a tiny scoop of some AMAZING Justins Nut Butter. Yep, I scooped it right outta the jar…it’s THAT good!

Quiche 049

Ok well I am BEYOND tired and I want to get to bet before I devour that whole jar! Mmmmm!

Goodnight!
