It is FILL-IN time because I have been MIA for too many days.
Friday was spent with my family at the BMW Championship in northern Indiana. Check out these two snap-shots I got before I got told to put my phone away – pictures were not allowed to be taken.
T.Woods ~ AKA = Tiger-Lillie
Mr. Michelson. ~ my 2nd FAV
I did not get to snap a pic of my FAV…Rory (AKA = RORS) because 1. my phone died before he came to practice putting green, but 2. I was told by officer to put my phone away. Bummer.
Saturday included some kitchen time, whipping up these:
They are the same ‘healthifed’ Peanut-butter Chocolate Chip Bars I made a couple weeks ago, but I got smart this time & put them in a muffin-pan to make individual serving sizes. SWEET.
Sunday included church, a long but FUN Cardio Kick practice, a walk with a friend & golf with my Dad (got to enjoy some of that AWESOME weather!)
Before I knew it, Monday was here…and gone now! CRAZY!
My day started at 3:15 this morning when my alarm went off. Y at about 4 to open. I took something easy to eat for breakfast once my hunger hit at about 8 o’clock.
Breakfast was 1/2 of this thinkThin Brownie Crunch Protein bar
After I finished up the morning shift, I stuck around to practice my Cardio Kick routine for class on Thursday. Was having so much fun practicing it with another instructor that time flew by & I ended up practicing for about 2 hours all in all. Shew! It was a good AM workout. Followed that up by coming home & washing my car in the BEAUTIFUL weather.
Worked up an appetite. So next came lunch.
* High Fiber Wheat Wrap with: Grilled Chicken, LF Laughing Cow Cheese (1/2 wedge), Sweet Pickles, BBQ sauce + Hot Sauce, Spring greens + Broccoli Slaw
* Just a few PopChips I put into my wrap to add crunch
* Left over Sweet Potato slices from last night
* Grapes (not pictured)
Snack before leaving for round two at the Y:
* few pieces of Peppered Beef Jerky
Here is the fuel I packed for the Y since I was teaching BodyPUMP followed by teaching STEP-IT-UP followed by taking Body & Soul. I decided it would be a good idea to pack a little protein for between BodyPUMP & Step-It-Up.
Picked this protein bar up at GNC this weekend.
I cut the bar into three pieces & took 1/3 of it with me tonight to munch on between classes so I could have energy for Step. It tasted AWESOME! & provided me with some good fuel to put towards my class. Step class was so FUN tonight, as always! I could definitely do it for an hour instead of just 45 minutes because you lose track of time when doing it for sure!
A mini description of each class taught/taken tonight:
* BodyPUMP 79 = HARD! Kicked my Butt!
* Step-It-Up = FUN-filled CARDIO! A sweaty-mess workout without a doubt!
* Body & Soul = Relaxing! A GREAT opportunity to STRETCH things out ~ lengthen, lengthen, lengthen!
Dinner tonight ~
A delicious chilled salad!
Included: Spring Mixed Greens, Broccoli Slaw, LF Blue Cheese, LF Parmesan, Mixed Nuts (mainly Almonds), Onion, Craisens, some Wheat Croutons
Dressing: FF Kraft Italian
A Little SWEET TREAT ~
Good Stuff. Hit the SPOT! I enjoyed a Vanilla SF Pudding tonight for first time…& highly recommend it to anyone in order to cure that evening little sweet tooth (if you ever have one. If you do not ~ I am SUPER jealous!)
Hoping you all started out your Monday with healthy eating habits & a bit of exercise. My energy levels are beginning to drop off quickly after this jam-packed day & my bed is beginning to sound AMAZING.
So, I will leave you tonight with some PINTEREST MI for a motivational Monday. I hope to return tomorrow night with a bit more time & energy to write.
I felt like I made today count…did you?
Always TRY ~ and above all, always give 100%+…you get no where worth-while when you “half-ass” something. So step up, give your “FULL ass” every-time & you are sure to go places. : )
Just a LITTLE Patience, and a LOT of Faith.
