Last night’s dinner was super filling!
I woke up this morning determined to start this funky-scheduled day with some pep. When I start my day with exercise, I always feel invincible for the rest of the day.
I began with cleaning out the fireplace and bringing in some fire wood from the 20 degree F porch to warm up the house. Once I got my pyro-fix, I started Julie’s Super Sweaty Ab Workout (one of my favorites)! Mountain Climbers kick my butt every time!
Once I completed this, I whipped out the magic bullet. I really wanted to use my homemade cashew butter today so I looked to my fellow nut butter lover, Julie, for some inspiration. The following found its way into my tummy:
half of a frozen banana
1 tbsp cashew butter
Strawberry Dannon Light and Fit yogurt
1 scoop Herbalife Vanilla Protein Drink Mix
1 scoop Herbalife Vanilla Formula 1
15g (1/4 to 1/3 cup) kale, chopped
1/4 tsp xanthum
After enjoying majority of this smoothie bowl and some serious brain freeze, I needed to knock out a lecture before class today. This bowl was so filling, I did not even think of food till close to 1600.
The reason I call this an “upside down kinda day” is because I work night shift tonight. Its different when you work 11pm to 7am consistently because your body adapts to that schedule, but when you work it every now and then, you just need to suck it up, sleep when you can, and power through. It also messes up my eating… like when do I sleep? What’s breakfast? Whens dinner? I feel like on days like this I eat alot of snacks, and not so much meals…
I was greeted by this view as I walked out of class:
And this pretty site on my way home:
After I got home from a really informative lab, I had a big bowl of fruit, from The Fresh Market, and topped it with some low fat cottage cheese! YUM!
While I am at work tonight, I will working on some reading for school, and of course, working on tomorrow’s post.
