Ok I am back.
Listen, this is probably what is going to have to happen because I have just NO time at night to blog. I know yall think that is cray because I dont have kids but starting this year I am really going to try to be on top of things!!! And that means paying attention to my house work. And yall know I have to walk into work 6 days a week. Happy to have a job but stressed sometimes and trying to get it all balanced. So I am going to try to blog during lunch!!! Ok so this is a re-cap of yesterdays eats AND today's up until lunch!
Yesterday Jacob was working but I went to church. I had a bowl of the strawberry chocolate special k (two servings of the cereal and one cup of milk), with coffee.
After church I went to the mall to exchange some jeans for my brother that I got him at Christmas that didnt fit and since he lives in SAN DEIGO and all I had to go return them and today will have to send them to California. I also went to the VS SALE! Holla!
Oh, the above pic is thai food -rice, grilled chicken, steamed veggies (sorta steamed, no sauce that I could tell).
Then I went to Old Navy and got a few workout clothes on sale! Woot ! And some red rockstar jeans on clearance as well as a cute shirt for work on clearance. I love a good deal!
So I came home and cleaned and paid some bills and meal prepped for this week! SO easy and I didnt even plan out a meal plan haha. I just grabbed sweet potatoes at the grocery store but you could sub that for rice if you wanted to do something similar. I baked the sweet potatoes in the oven and halved them, one half per lunch. Baked up a bunch of grilled chicken tenderloins with Ms. Dash and threw in some steamed asparagus in two of them and italian cut green beans ( I split one can in two) in the other two. Healthy and easy peasy!
This should last me for four days. I will probably grab something to go on friday or have leftovers of some sort or a frozen meal. I am so sick of frozen meals though!
Dinner was before my food prep though and I had a salmon burger (my last one! eek!) from Costco and steamed asparagus (7 spears are 20 calories, I think & I think I counted out seven) from aldis also about a half a cup of rice with spray butter!
You read that right!!!
Got my stuff on and everything packed up and drank my C4!!! Its pink lemonade flavor and AWESOME!!!! You mix it with like 4-6oz of water. Awesome, yet expensive. For a 30 serving container I paid around 31.99 (gold card member price at gnc) although you might could find it online cheaper. But honestly I looked foward to trying it out and getting up to workout. I also took a coffee to go.
I really feel that it made a difference. NOW, I would not go around drinking this stuff like they do spark and what not. It gave me a TON of energy but I was a bit jittery after a few hours. Still love it, still will drink it, but ONLY before a workout.
I got my hiney to the gym and did two ab machines. Yall, I know I have NO IDEA really what I am doing weightlifting wise but I just want to slowly dip myself into it. One day abs, one day arms, one day legs, everyday cardio!
Ok so I did the two machines then ran on the treadmill for 5 mins. Nearly fell out. UGH. Running is something you have to use or you lose.
Then I did the elliptical (my fave) for 40 mins.
Got to work and had breakfast. Oatmeal from a big canister (aldis) with cinnamon and cinnamon applesauce (half a single serving). Also a hard boiled egg ( I also prepped four of them last night).
Yall meal prepping was honestly not hard and only took like 40 mins-1 hr to make! I am so excited and I want to do it every week!! Very cost effective too!!!
I hope yall are having a great day!!!
