Drove home from Indy this morning. Didn’t want to leave. Miss Ann, Ben & Lil lots…and Megan, too! I was hoping to see my old roomie & best friend Katy while I was there also, but that ended up not working out.
Before I left Ann & Ben’s I had a Naner & a few slices of deli Turkey I picked up at Meijer on Sunday. The Naner was the perfect ripeness! Mmmm.

Once I got to B-Town I stopped at my apartment to drop off a key & pay a rent check, then made a pit stop at…BB (Bloomington Bagel). My car just drives itself there every-time I visit B-Town! I just can’t help it. Lol. I got the same thing as Friday – A whole wheat with local honey bagel & Lite Roasted Red Pepper Spread. Can’t bring myself to try anything else. I also just could not resist the AMAZING looking M&M Blonde Brownie sitting by the check-out. Just sounded so good today. I got it.
So on my way home, I managed to eat 1/2 the bagel with a little spread (tasted as AWESOME as Friday!), plus about 1/3 of the M&M Blonde (managed to finish the rest off this afternoon, after I finished practicing step. Reason I ate it then = the metabolism was up & going — Know it was better to eat it then vs. as my ‘sweet treat’ later in the evening when I couldn’t burn any of it off through exercise)
Nom, nom, nom. – the best bagel & spread. Period.
When I arrived home, I got TONS of kisses from Little Sophie because she missed her mother! I unpacked all my baggage I ended up bringing home, including the GROCERIES from Meijer! Here are most of the buys…
Use this in my SHAKEOLOGY shakes.
Freshly cored PINEAPPLE! – one of my favorite fruits.
Some more Greek yogurts to sample for my breakfasts.
One vanilla + 2 plain (that I will sweeten myself with
Stevia Agave Nectar)
PUFFINS! Two boxes, but I was buying one for a friend to try!
These looked mighty tasty for a little snacking.
More L-Carnitine — I ran out today!
Co-Q10 — it was on super sale, so bought 2 (it is sometimes a bit pricey)! Good for your heart & is a key part of the body’s metabolism. Won’t last long though because got 30mg tablets & recommended dose is 100mg/day. At 3 tablets/day, 2 bottles won’t even last a month!
Whole Wheat NAAN Bread for veggie pizza crust!
Meijer is AWESOME. Plain and simple
Hit the STEP after I unloaded my car. I set up shop outside in my backyard. Pulled my car around so I had my music & went to practicing. I practiced for about 2 hours before I had to call it a day to get ready to head to the Y.
After I got to the Y, I ran through more STEP for about 40 minutes before class started. Let’s just say, I had my fair share of STEPPING action today!
Taught STEP-IT-UP, my 45 minute class. We stepped for about 35, then did ABS & ARMS for the last ten. It was a GREAT class! Definitely a sweaty mess when it ended.
Followed step with teaching BODYPUMP! It was a super FUN workout tonight! I had lots of Huntingburg people there, which made it more exciting.
Had a Fitness Orientation to do after BodyPUMP, but while I did it I drank my Cookies-n-Cream protein shake I made before heading to the Y. I definitely needed it today after all the cardio + BodyPUMP. Muscles needed some re-fueling!
When I got home, I analyzed what I’d eaten thus far today & determined I needed some VEGGIES in this day! So, that is exactly what I had for supper…with a tad bit of smoked pork chop (not something I usually would ever touch, but Mom made them for she & Dad tonight. She left a piece laying out for me, so I tried it to be nice. Ended up being pretty tasty, so I ate it.) She also had a few Asparagus stalks saved for me. — Ate this while I prepared my wedgies!
Asparagus & Smoked pork chop
Pre-baked Wedgies! – Red pepper, Broccoli, Carrots, Sweet Tater
drizzled with Olive Oil & sprinkled with Italian seasoning. Baked at 395 degrees for about 25 minutes.
Finished product. I realized I definitely made too many. So had a few left-overs for tomorrow.
Everything tonight tasted DELISH! – I think I was hungry. Metabolism was revvin’.
No ‘sweet treat’ tonight. I had the exceptional tasting Blonde Brownie today, so that was more SWEET than necessary. But tasted oh.so.good. — have to splurge sometimes I guess. Right?
Hope you all had a kick-butt Monday workout & healthy eats (with perhaps a little sweet treat!). Tomorrow is Tackle-It Tuesday – so step it up & tackle a goal you have yet to accomplish. Be it an eating habit, such as cutting out a snack; or, a workout goal such as increasing your running mileage or adding in ABS to your workout! Whatever it is, tackle it tomorrow!
A little PINTEREST MI to get you geared up for Tackle-It Tuesday!
Be AWESOME. You’ll be so glad you did it.
Love this one.
You guessed it…definitely FIT-spiration! – talk about ABS!
I need to work on my WILL POWER! Why? – because SUMMER is QUICKLY approaching! YIKES.
Tackle-It Tuesday…Make IT HAPPEN!
