breakfast foods for every meal!!!

hi everyone….so other than the fact that i am currently in the midst of a froyo obsession (lets not talk about how i got it twice last night…oops!), i am also on a breakfast food kick! apparently my body is telling me to eat toast and oatmeal and yogurt and fruit and peanut butter and bananas for every stinkin’ meal! haha i seriously have been living off of these foods and oh ya also craving red meat like a mother too! haha cravings are so weird!!!

anyways, for lunch yesterday i had an ezequial sprouted whole grain english muffin topped with loads on sunbutter and a sliced banana…

tuesday lunch

Yum, so good and filling!!!

Then, last night i headed over to a sports bar with my bessttieeee and we watched all the hockey playoff games while enjoying dinna! i got a santa fe salad, which was a bed of romaine topped with avo, carne asada, bell peppers, corn, tomato, and a yummy cilantro vinaigrette dressing! It was amazing and super cheap for how much you got!!

Oh and my froyo sessions happened 1…after i got home from work and before i went to dinner and then 2….when i got home from dinner and before i went to bed. lets just say i gave into my craving and have to have more self restraint from now on!!!

On to today…got up early to go to the gym, then decided to sleep in and go in the afternoon! haha maybe all that frozen yogurt made me lethargic or something…but ya spin is on the agenda tonight!!

For breakfast today i made myself a berry smoothie (yogurt, almondmilk, spinach, protein powder, & frozen berries), then topped it with homemade granola..so good!

wednesday breakfast

Lunch was eaten en route to Nordstrom Rack on my lunch break, so i did not snap a pic..but it was overnight berry oats…haha basically just rolled oats, greek yogurt, almond milk, chia seeds, sunbutter, frozen berries/cherries, and topped with another dollop of greek yogurt this morning!

haha soooo, hopefully i won’t cave to breakfast foods or froyo for dinner tonight! I am thinking of maybe doing salmon and sweet potato/broccoli combo..we shall see!

Hope everyone enjoys their hump day and the start of May!!! Look out for my post tomorrow on some upcoming races I am doing!!

Adios amigos 🙂

livin’ the froyo lyfeeee.

hi everyone!!

Time to recap my weekend and the start of my week!

Well, we can start by saying that I have in fact had frozen yogurt 4 times in the past week! I am on this new boat where I basically want it every night and then I have to limit myself because I will go broke if I keep it up at the rate I am going! But, anyways..my like only picture this weakened was one of froyooo!!!!

yogurtland

I believe this mix had peanut butter, banana, and vanilla froyo..mixed with strawberries, cookie dough bites, cheesecake bites, and my new fave topping….fruity pebbles!! Seriously guys…they even go good on the more chocolaty flavors!

Um, basically this weekend I spent Friday night with some yogurtland and a movie w/ friends.

Then Saturday I hit the gym for 25 minutes of spin and some ab work. Then, I volunteered at my little brother’s school fair because my parents couldn’t go to the shift they signed up for…aren’t I such a good daughter?! I sold ride tickets and the 3 hours actually ended up going by fairly quickly!

Then, Saturday afternoon I got some lunch with the mom and seesters…then I went on a late afternoon run and did about 4 miles. However, it was late in the afternoon and HOT outside and I was still full from lunch and didn’t do a scenic route…so run kinda sucked! But, I did finish it up at the baseball field where my little bro had a game and so I got to watch him play for about an hour, which was nice! I love sitting in the park and watching baseball games, so relaxing! Especially after such a bad run!

Saturday night I had plans to go to dinner and movie, but my friend canceled last minute…so I threw on my sweats, got me some froyo and started watching Downtown Abbey! I am officially hooked on the show…and it is only getting better with each episode!

Sunday morning I met up with a friend for breakfast where I got the best French Toast eva!!!! I talked about it before, but it is basically a baguette filled w/ mascarpone cheese and topped with whipped cream and berries!! SOOOO good!

After breakfast, I hit up Target with the parentals…then got lunch with mom and sister again! Finally, I napped and then drove up to LA to meet up with some college friends who were doing a little healthy living party. They did a presentation on this awesome vitamin called Juice Plus, which basically is the pressed nutrients of tons of fruits and veggies all in one small capsule! Super cool and I am definitely going to be giving this a whirl!

Alright…now on to Monday! My day started with this…

monday breakfast

blackberries, banana, strawberries, coconut, all over greek yogurt! Yum!

Then, progressed to this…

monday lunch

Sunbutter, Strawberry Jelly, Banana Sammy…with side of berries!

Also, not pictured were some animal cookies..the pink and white ones aka the best  cookie ever!!!

Finally, my day ended with this…

monday dinner

Chicken/Apple Sausage, Brussel Sprouts, Sweet Taters, Carrots, Celery, Mushroom, Onion, topped w/ hummus…yummmalicious! and full of veggies!

My produce was about to go bad…so I simply sautéed a ton of veggies up, then added the sausage and hummus for a yummy fridge cleaning dinna!

I went to spin class last night…but I was kind of feeling weird and had some stomach cramps, so I cut class a little early and stretched out before heading home! Sometimes you just have to listen to your body and my body was telling me to take a chill pill last night!

This morning I woke up early and hit the gym..I got in 5 miles in 55 minutes incorporating some incline walking and building speed as workout went on!

tuesday workout

I also did about 15 minutes of abs and am thinking of trying to do a little arm workout later..maybe try and come up with a 10 minute mini workout…but we will see!

Breakfast this morning was some overnight oats topped w/ banana, kiwi, blackberries, & coconut!

tuesday breakfast

tuesday breakfast 2

Yum! And so far it is doing a good job of keeping me full an satisfied!

I have plans to go to a street fair and grab din with some friends tonight…so I will try and snap some pics so I can show you them tomorrow!!! Hope everyone had a nice weekend and is having a good week so far! I will talk to you all soon 🙂
