Good morning! My week is in full swing and going by quickly. I’ve got a few fun recipes I found on Pinterest that I wanted to share, but first let’s talk about some meals and workouts.
When I got home from work yesterday it was “fend for yourself” night in our house, so I made a peanut butter & banana sandwich on wheat with some cucumber slices and vegetable chips.
I hadn’t made a peanut butter sandwich in a while and I had to stop myself (or not….) from eating peanut butter right out of the jar!
Workout & Breakfast
My legs are feeling pretty tight after all those squats and lunges yesterday! After 35 minutes on the Adaptive Motion Trainer I wanted to work my arms and shoulders. For waaay too long, my arm workout was fairly non-existent and I couldn’t do more than a couple pushups.
Yep….Sounds about right.
This morning, however, there were a bunch of people using the machines I wanted and I didn’t have time to wait for them. Looks like “arm day” will have to be tomorrow! I did a couple rounds of my Burnin’ Abs workout from a couple weeks ago and it did the trick!
After getting home and showering, I made what I’ll call “Italian Egg White Scramble”, which is fancy talk for throwing a whole bunch of crap in a pan with some egg whites and stirring it around. As I’m sure you know by now, I’m a very lazy cook. 🙂
Today I used:
- 1/2 cup liquid egg whites
- 1/2 cup or so pre-cooked diced potatoes (I had leftover home fries from Sunday that I used)
- 1/4 cup diced tomato
- 6-7 basil leaves, chopped
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- Italian seasoning
- Garlic power
- Black pepper
The picture didn’t turn out so great, but I promise it tasted really good!
Fabulous Pinterest Finds
I hadn’t been on Pinterest in a few days and when I logged on last night I saw a bunch of great ideas. I don’t know about you, but I find myself constantly looking to PInterest for inspiration when I want workout motivation, great recipes, or just to look at pictures of puppies (you know you do it too!). Here are some of my favorites so far that I’d love to try.
Skinny Chicken Salad. I LOVE grapes and nuts in my chicken salad, so this is a must-make!
Tilapia with arugula, capers, and tomatoes. I love fish and this looks so quick and easy!
Peach Smoothie. I keep wanting to make everything with peaches lately and this looked super refreshing.
Time to hit the road and get ready for another busy work day!
