I started off my Friday morning with a blog world favorite: SIAB
In the blender:
- Frozen Cherries
- 1/2 Container 0% Fage Greek Yogurt
- Handful of Spinach
- 1 Scoop of Trader Joes Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
- Splash of Almond Milk
- Dusting of Cocoa Powder
- Sprinkle of Chia Seeds
- A Spoonful of Homemade Fruit + Nut Granola
The smoothie was a lot sweeter than the clean up.
Yes, that is our kitchen table. It’s so tiny! It works for now, but I can not wait until our kitchen is semi-normal size and I can have a real dining room table.
When I broke for lunch I was really craving a good sandwich. I remembered I still had some Southwest Sunshine Burgers that I bought with some coupons that the company send me.
Southwest Burger + Avocado + Red Onion + Cheddar + Light Chipotle Ranch on a Sandwich Thin. Such a good combo! The flavors were bursting, and I definitely enjoyed the Southwest Burger more than the Falafel. I think the key to great Sunshine Burgers is cooking them on the grill or stovetop. You may be saving time by using the microwave, but you are sacrificing flavor + consistency, people!
With a juicy side of mango.
I had been itching to go to an early morning yoga class yesterday morning, but when my alarm went off at 5:15 I laughed and rolled over. Operation 6am Yoga: Fail. Instead I squeezed in a few videos from Polly and found some random, but challenge YouTube videos to get my fix.
Recently I’ve really been wanting to amp up my yoga classes, but with adding in 3 addition triathlon related workouts a week it just hasn’t been possible. By the time I’m free from my triathlon training I’ll be heading to camp, so I think I’ll be waiting until the Fall to really get back into attending class after class during the week.
Matt & I purchased our first whole chicken last weekend and I was really excited to do something with it. After poking around on Cooking Light’s website one night last week I stumbled upon this recipe.
I sent Matt out in the rain to make us some grilled chicken! I imagined the chicken would take longer than it actually did, so around 4 I found myself picking at it + wishing it was dinner time.
I roasted some potatoes + carrots and at 4:30 declared it dinner time on a Friday night. Sometimes it’s okay to eat at the Early Bird Special time, right?
After dinner I headed to night 1 of my coaching class. The course which was supposed to last until 10:30 got over at 8. And the best part is although were supposed to be in the classroom from 8-8 both Saturday & Sunday he is letting us out both days before one!
Dessert + Movie
We celebrated my early dismissal with a Red Box flick + some Blue Bunny ice cream.
Have you ever had Blue Bunny ice cream? I hadn’t until I moved to Iowa. Did you know it’s made in Le Mars, Iowa – the ice cream capital of the world! It is so appropriate that I call Iowa home.
