I kept breakfast light this morning since I was heading out to the gym within 30 minutes of waking, and didn’t want to feel like a two-ton whale.
I’m not someone who can workout on a completely full belly. I do much better on light fuel because a full belly makes me cramp up or want to curl up and go to sleep, neither of which are conducive to a good workout!
This morning’s breakfast was brownie batter hot cereal.
The mix included:
- 1 serving Flax-Z-Snax chocolate cream hot cereal
- 1 scoop All the Whey chocolate peanut butter cup protein powder
- 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
Microwaved for 90 seconds, stirring regularly to prevent ooooverflow…
This combination is so rich and chocolatey. I think I could bathe in this stuff.
After the gym, I came home, grabbed a Balance Bar, and took Sadie on a walk around the lake near our apartment.
There was a festival with lots of different arts and crafts and food vendors surrounding the lake.
I loved the sign that read, “If we are what we eat, I’m fast, easy and cheap.”
I think my sign would say, “If we are what we eat, I’m cheesy, fruity and sweet!”
While walking around, Sadie and I both enjoyed a free sample of kettle corn. That stuff is dang delicious!
I stopped to say hi to some of the dogs up for adoption and fell in love with these two pups:
The second one reminded me so much of my friend Minda’s dog, Brody. He was adorable!
Here’s the name of the rescue in case any of you out there live in Florida and want to adopt one of these cuties:
When we arrived home from our walk, I was huuuungry.
I made myself a bowl of roasted Nasoya tofu, broccoli and zucchini, ricotta cheese and marinara meat sauce.
Wanna know something crazy? I didn’t know you could bake tofu until like a month ago. Well you can, and it’s delicious!
After lunch, Ryan and I headed to the backyard to catch some rays.
We both got antsy after a while and Ryan asked me if I would give him a haircut.
Of course I agreed. Check out Barber Julie’s masterpiece:
Ryan now owes me $25, but I may settle for some soft serve.
The rest of our Saturday will be spent running errands to work out some kinks with our cable box (ugh), and tracking down people on craigslist to get a boxspring and a mattress for the bed in our guest room!
Catch ya lataaa.
