Last night James told me he wanted to take pictures of everything he ate for a day.I didn’t even ask why he wanted to (I’m going to make a great lawyer..so inquisitive!) I’m assuming it’s because his man food groups are bread and cheese….and maybe taking pictures would give him some perspective on his eating habits.
Of course I said I would do it too..you know..to be supportive 🙂 So I figured I would post it up here! Plus James made a delish breakfast!
For accountability sake, I had a small handful of peanuts when I first woke up and was waiting for breakfast…I was hungry!
I was given a piece of toasted Arnold’s Double Fiber bread, and 2 eggs scrambled with some mixed frozen veggies. What service!!
With the appropriate condiments:
Oh Texas Pete, how I love you!! I think it’s that vinegar base that gets me every time.
James was running around getting ready for work and asked me to make him a smoothie. I was oh so tempted to throw some spinach in there…but I was nice since he made me breakfast.
So I made him a gigantic man smoothie. Well if a man smoothie has lots of strawberry yogurt, frozen strawberries and a banana in it. With a straw. Duh.
Like his container of choice? We have travel mugs but he prefers empty bottles of salsa. Whatev. At least it’s environmentally friendly, right?? Reuse!!!
Then I ran out the house to the gym while James was leaving for work. I always feel so guilty leaving Toby so I try to leave at the same time as James. Strength in numbers. And I avoid eye contact.
- Time: 70 minutes
- 50 minutes treadmill – 2.7 miles, 3.9 mph, 8%-12% incline
- 50 crunches on a stability ball
- 15 X 3 tricep kick backs with 8 lb weights
- 15 X 3 shoulder presses w/ squats, 5 lb weights
- 15 X 3 bicep curls
OO feel the burn!!!
I hung around the apartment doing laundry and such and then decided it was time for a smoothie. I couldn’t resist the urge of taking the end of the banana I was using in my smoothie and smothering it in TJ’s Smooth Unsalted PB. It was everything I imagined it would be.
Then it was green smoothie time!! I hadn’t had one in a few days so this really hit the spot.
- 3 cups Kale
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- handful of ice
- 1/4 c. water
- 6 frozen strawberries
- 1/4 c. frozen pineapple
- 1 banana (minus the end 🙂 )
I don’t know how I feel about the pineapple in it. I think I like using mango instead. Need to get some more of that!
I had a hard time getting my smoothies to blend when I first started making them. Now I think I have found the trick! First I put in the ice then I put everything else in. I turn it on and THEN pour in the liquid, while the blender is on. That does the trick!
Now I’m going to go get a planner from Office Depot. For some reason whenever I refer to my planner, I can’t help but say it like a geeky 13 year old with their glasses taped together.
