Hey Hey!! I’m back 😀
First comes first…breakfast. This morning was really weird- I was not hungry @ all for breakfast. Usually I’m pretty much starving when I get to work..but I just wasn’t feeling it this morning. Maybe because I was out of my normal routine for more than the usual weekend time. But I still had my usual- a breakfast cookie. Although it wasn’t as good as normal- the banana wasn’t quite ripe yet. (1/3 cup old fashioned oats, 3/4 banana, 2 tsp. peanut butter, 3 tbsp. almond milk)
For lunch I had the usual- yogurt mess.
And then I had an apple with some PB2.
One thing I really do miss about fall is getting good apples. This one was just not good. I could of grabbed a bad one though- who knows 🙂
I LOVE these things- although they aren’t super filling- they are a great hold-me-over kind of snack 🙂 They remind me of pop- tarts! I don’t know about you, but I LOVED pop-tarts as a kid. Especially the cinnamon sugar ones & the frosted strawberries ones with sprinkles.
Did you have a favorite Pop tart?? Or do you still?
For my afternoon workout I did a mix of butt & glute exercises.

I ended it with 10 minutes of cardio- 6 on the elliptical & 4 min. walking @ 3.5. I HAD to move off of the elliptical because the guy next to me was REALLY smelly. (not to be mean) & he was on the phone for like 45 minutes while we were there. GRR! So annoying.

For dinner I made something quick- my quick jambalaya recipe 🙂 I love this- it’s PERFECT for a quick meal & tonight that’s exactly what I needed.
All you need is:
-20 oz. of salsa- your choice of flavor/ spice
-1 lb. raw, peeled, deveined shrimp
-Cooked Rice (I used the boil in a bag)
On the side I made some corn bread & broccoli:
Yum yum! Always satisfying & healthy 😀 I went from zero hungry this morning to SUPER SUPER hungry for dinner! I think I might even have to have a snack before bed..I’m still a bit hungry.
Right now we are watching Losing It With Jillian. Did any one else see that little boy throw that ‘fry bread’ on her??? I was thinking what a BRAT! I can’t believe he did that.
Well, now I’m off to finish watching it & catch up on our Housewives of New Jersey episode that we still have waiting for us.
Catch ya in the morning!
