Peachy Keen x 1000

After my cookie spree and the rest of the amazing foods at Immediato’s Bistro, I woke up still full and in the mood to work out. I’ve completed all of Julie’s circuit work outs, except for one: The 1000 Rep Workout! Frankly, it has always scared me a bit. I don’t know what came over me but I did it! I felt victorious! I was sweaty and smiling!
I thought the squats were going to be the hardest part for me, but it was actually the 50 seconds of wall sits! i wanted to scream! For the rest of the day I was filled with energy! I even called my dad and he came over and we took the pup for a walk! For the next week the high is about 25 degrees so we really needed to take advantage of this weather!
I love taking a walk with dad and Beauty. Beauty is getting old, so I love seeing that she still has some pep in her step. Dads getting old, too, so I like to see that hes got some spunk left, also. Just kidding, dad! But in all sincerity, I love walking with my dad. Sure we talk on the phone or over dinner, but its like a different kind of conversation. I don’t know, but its just different and I love it!
After we got back, Beauty decided it was nap time. Me? I decided it was food time. I’ve been on a bit of a yogurt kick lately and wanted to try this:

I really wasn’t that impressed. I like the chunks of peaches, but there wasn’t much of a peach flavor. Therefore, I decided smoothie bowl was the route to go. The following was whipped up in the Bullet:

1 (6oz) Chobani Non-fat Peach Greek Yogurt
100g of frozen sliced peaches
20g of kale
1 scoop Herbalife Vanilla Protein Drink Mix
1 scoop Herbalife Vanilla Formula 1
1/4 tsp xanthum
ice

I find that the bowls where I use greek yogurt, keep me the most full and satisfied. Like with the bananas, when I notice fruit is starting to turn, I’ll slice it up and freeze it for my shakes. I remembered I had some slices of peach in the freezer. I think in today’s case, I used too much kale and did not have enough peaches.

The shake was decent, but it was missing some sweetness… Lightbulb!

In this post I discussed how I really was not a fan of thePeach and Raspberry Honey Bunches of Oats, but I enjoyed it dry… I topped the shake with this cereal. It added that fruitiness and crunch it was missing.

Rainy Days

Good golly Miss Molly! I could NOT get to sleep last night! I was tired, but this brain of mine wouldn’t shut down. I went from my bed  to the couch to the bed to the floor… I finally fell asleep around 0130 on the couch and woke up about 2hrs later and traveled back to bed.
Once again, Wilmington is saturated! And Cold! This means no run for Sammy  😦
This rainy weather really affects my drive to do anything, really… any work out at all seems like a challenge at this moment. But I’ll manage something today.

I was in a cereal mood this morning so I tried my new Honey Bunches of Oats Peach and Raspberry Fruit Blend Cereal topped with some flax milk. I’m a pretty big fan of Honey Bunches of Oats, especially the Almond cereal!

In my opinion, this is one of those cereals that tastes better dry. I found that the milk really made the fruit flavors disappear. With my bowl if cereal, a cup of hot Earl Grey an my water bottle of peach berry green tea.

My manager called the other day and offered me some hours this week! I’m heading out on this raining day to work with another Lean Cuisine in toe.  On the menu tonight: Steak Tips Portabello. Its served with broccoli, but I think I’ll give the broccoli slaw a rest and just through in some baby carrots.

Stay warm!
