To those of you who speak Spanish, feel free to snicker I really do like eggs though! Hahah
Happy Tuesday! Hope you’re all having a great day!
Mine started off with me sleeping through the alarm. When it happens, the day always feels so frantic! So I’ve been playing catch-up all morning…
I did have some lovely oaties:
-1/2 cup old fashioned oats with vanilla brown rice protein, 1 tbs AB, crumbled ProBar, cinnamon, Stevia and WS vanilla extract (which I’m officially hooked on!)
I went to the gym for a little triceps, shoulders, chest and abs:
|Elliptical Warm-up||Cross country 2, level 5, 5 minutes|
|Dumbbell Upward Row||10 lbs each, 3 sets of 12|
|Overhead Dumbbell Triceps Extension||15 lbs, 3 sets of 12|
|Straight-bar press down||40 lbs, 3 sets of 12|
|Straight bar triceps press down||40 lbs, 3 sets of 12|
|Supine chest fly||5 lbs each, 3 sets of 10|
|Bosu crunch||Body weight, 3 sets of 15|
|Chest press machine||35 lbs, 3 sets of 10|
|Hanging leg raise||Body weight, 3 sets of 10|
When I got home, I grabbed a Larabar and the puppies—I took them to the base trail for their walk.
We walked for about 30 minutes, and then drove home so I could get ready for work.
I snacked on an egg and 1 egg white with chipotle seasoning and Texas Pete:
I’m thinking it would be pretty easy for me to be a vegan if I didn’t love eggs, goat cheese and shrimp so much. I just can’t see myself ever giving them up.. so I will remain a quasitarian
For lunch, I packed a Quorn cutlet on a TJs mini bagel (love those little things) with hot sauce, mustard and spinach.
Paired with half an orange bell pepper, it was a delicious little lonchi:
I can definitely see what the Quorn hype has been about it the blog world. The little cutlets are AMAZING. You can flavor them however you wish and I love that they’re not too chickeny tasting. Bonus: they’re soy free. Of course I would fall in love with yet another thing that I will not be finding in Valdosta. One more reason for frequent roadtrips to civilization
Work was pretty laid back, and then I FINALLY went to the post office (macaroons are on the way, friends!) and met with the owner of the gym I work at. We’re going to be doing a Biggest Loser style challenge this summer and I’m way excited about it!
When I got home, I was feeling snacky (shocker, no?) so I grabbed some strawberries (gotta love fresh Georgia strawberries!!!) with so raw goat cheddar:
I had a cheesy bite with every berry bite. Savory + sweet is such a good way to go
It’s time for me to choreograph for step, teach, then off to school. I was planning on making a real dinner to pack, but it looks like it’s gonna be Clif Bar City for me.
Hope you all have a very happy Tuesday!!!

Something to do: Trick your body! For those of you who count calories, think about varying your calorie intake each day to keep your body from kicking into cruise control. If you usually consume 1500 calories each day, try switching your intake to 1400 one day, 1600 the next and so on. This will keep your average caloric intake at the same amount and will shake things up. Remember change creates change. Anything you can do to keep your body guessing while you’re trying to achieve fitness/weight loss goals is a good thing
