Typical Day

Yesterday started off with a walk with my three favorite girls!

Then I took off for my run.  I didn’t leave myself much time, so I got in a quick 2 miles and then headed home to get everyone up and around for the day.

Meal #1: Chobani Vanilla Green Yogurt, Udi’s granola, banana

Brutis was thinking we might want to try some of that yogurt bowl.

Not a chance, buddy!

After my food settled, I headed downstairs to lift weights.

I started with 20 minutes on the elliptical.

3 sets of the following:

  • Standing cable flys
  • Assisted pull ups
  • Concentration curls
  • Dips
  • 1 minute of step ups with knee raise (no weight)

I ended with another 20 minutes on the elliptical.

Meal #2: Egg whites with a gluten free english muffin with butter

I had big plans to get chores done yesterday but I was beat.  I didn’t feel like doing anything!

Meal #3: Turkey italian sausage, brown rice noodles, roasted petite brussel sprouts

I laid around inside.

I laid around outside.

Meal #4: protein powder, peanut butter, granola

2011August 013

Everyone needs to grab a bowl and make this right now.  It is sooooo good.

Look at all that chocolatey gooie-ness! It was even better today since I ate it while the granola was still crunchy!

Oh. My. Goodness.

Go eat it!

Meal #5: Ground turkey with mustard, roasted petite brussel sprouts.

I settled in for the evening and watched No Strings Attached.  I really liked it!  A typical feel good love story.  My kind of movie!


  1. I made the granola, chocolatey goodness and holy heaven! : )

    It hit the spot!

  2. So glad you loved it too!!

  3. Ok, I need to know how to make this heavenly dish. :) What are the ingredients and quantities? :D

  4. 1 scoop chocolate protein mixed with just enough water or dark chocolate almond milk to make it a peanut butter consistency.
    1 tablespoon natural peanut butter mixed in then start adding Granola - I don't measure this, just keep dumping some in until I have the desired amount

    It is thick and gooey, almost caramelly!!
