Hey everyone! Happy Friday! Sorry I’m a little late posting today- it’s been my catch-up day since I worked a little more this past week.
I had to try one of the raw almond butter-stuffed macaroons when I walked downstairs this morning:
And it was every bit as evil and foodgasmic as it looks. Why didn’t I think of this sooner?!?
I took the little babies on a walk so they would be sane for the rest of the day.
And when we got home, I made a sludge before going to work.
It had coconut water, saturn peach, banana, hemp protein, Vega smoothie infusion, stevia, sea salt and vanilla. It was AMAZING!
I had a training appointment and a 30 minute elliptical sesh with my new book, and when I came home, Megan had left me Avocolada!
Yay-uhhhh! Meg is the smoothie/juice queen 😀
I had to go back to work, cleaned the casa and had a salad beast for lonchi:
Spinach, bell pepper, tomato, sweet onion, raw apple cider vinegar, sea salt, red chili flakes, 1/2 avocado and the last bit of goat gouda. And it was very gouda 😉
Back to work for two more appointments (why did I book so many on a Friday?! sheesh) and some more ellipticising and conversation with Jeni (20 minutes + 30 this morning =50 breezy minutes).
When I got back home to the puppers, I was hankering for an egg, so I had two egg whites topped with a generous amount of chili and some sea salt.
The pilot should be home any second and we’re meeting some friends for Indian tonight! Twice in a week- I’m ecstatic.
It pains me to say this but I think I’m going to cut back on the red vino. Every single time I’ve had vino for the past month or so (even when it’s just one glass, like last night) I’ve had horrific nightmares. Scary, horrible nightmares – I woke up twice last night. Has anyone heard of this happening before?? So for now, I’m not going to drink vino.. we’ll see how long I last though 😉
I’m off to get a little yoga in my life for these tight hammies and then get ready for Indian!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
Today’s tip: This is for my readers who would like to gain some el bees. An easy way to add in extra calories and gain weight at a healthy pace is to add a smoothie to your current food intake. This way, you can drink your calories (rather than having to eat an extra meal), add in as much or as little as you need, and then reduce the amount once you get into maintenance mode. If drinking the smoothie at once is too much for you, just leave it in the fridge and sip on it throughout the day. Another tip- just blend it until combined (not for much longer) so that excess air doesn’t get in there- it will keep you from getting that “too full/bloated” feeling.
