Hey Friends 😀
Thank you so much for all of your comments on my last post about adding calories to my diet. You guys are the BEST. No, seriously, you are!! I couldn’t ask for a more supportive group of people. So, thank you..each & every one of you 🙂
After my workout this morning, I headed home to shower & to grab a protein shake.
I really like the idea of adding these shakes..and honestly this might sound LAME but I think I already notice a difference. Would that be weird to say? I just feel stronger in general. It’s a good feeling 🙂
When I got to work I really was not hungry for breakfast right away, since I drank my shake on the way to work, so around 9:30am/ 10am I grabbed a Flat Out, toasted it, & topped it with SF strawberry jelly.
For lunch I had my usual but LOOKY LOOKY @ what I found:
Here’s my opinion of this one: the first bite was REALLY good- I’m talking pineapple upside down cake good, but then when I tried another bite it just didn’t taste as good. Strange, huh? Kind of had like a cheesy- taste to it. I know, that’s weird to say, but I just couldn’t really get why I was tasting cheese. Hmmmm. I guess if you like cream cheese + pineapple then you’d LOVE this, but I actually HATE cream cheese- I always have. Just could never eat it.
I’ll buy it again to use for yogurt messes, or to bake with. But I have to buy them individually since I just get my 12 pack of Chobani from BJ’s.
and an oatmeal/ raisin granola bar on my drive home.
I’ve been really disappointed in apples lately…I guess since they are not in season it’s to be expected. But this is really the first batch that I’ve picked up that have really been favorless. Yuck.
Cardio..again 🙂 Like the weight training in the morning then cardio at night.
walk @ 3.7 for 2 minutes
jog/ light run @ 6.5 for 5 minutes
30 minutes rotating between 1 resistance & 5 resistance every minute. I also had it set on the highest ramp, so it would really work my calves.

GUESS WHAT was waiting for me on my porch when I got home from work?!?!
The kind people at Manna Organics sent me a box full of their different breads to try!
In the box included:
-Banana Walnut Hemp
-Fig Fennel Flax
-Fruit & Nut
& 3 slices of their sour dough breads!!
I’m SO excited to try these!! Probably most excited about the carrot raisin & the sour dough slices- since sour dough is my favorite 😉 It will definitely be included in my meals tomorrow. So be on the look out for a review!
THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone at Manna Organics!!!
As for dinner I made individual pizzas for Craig & I. Well, really I just split pizza dough down the middle & made one half for me & one for Craig. Craig had a big day a work- a BIG, important meeting that he was kind of nervous about- so once it was over & he texted me & said it went really well & all of his work got approved, I instantely texted him back & said I’m making you a special dinner tonight 😀
One of his favorite things is artichoke hearts. I’m not a super big fan, I don’t mind them, but I don’t love them either. But, then I got to thinking & I know he LOVES pizza & artichoke hearts make great pizza toppings…so pizza it was!
I hate 3 pieces of mine & C ate all of his 🙂 He said it was really good…
I accidently split a TON of dried minced garlic on Craig’s half. Oop-sies. I went to sprinkle some on and the WHOLE top came off & HALF of the bottle split out. YIKES!
At least we’ll both have dragon breath tonight & it won’t look like this:
Well, anyways, we’re off to catch Big Brother. I think if I have to hear Rachel talk much longer I might shoot myself. Her voice is BEYOND annoying! grrrr!!
Hope you have a GREAT night 😀
