What a Monday

I knew when I woke up yesterday that it was going to be a great day!  I have a new fire burning and want to make the next 30 days count.

I started the day with taking the the girls for their walk.

Meal #1: Yogurt bowl: Chobani vanilla, Udi’s granola, banana

Then it was time for Title Boxing.  As usual, an awesome class and a total sweat fest.

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

It was a gorgeous day, so Justin and I played some golf.

Ummm, notice where the ball is?  Oops.

The pink outfits were not on purpose but happened out of laziness.  I got dressed first and then went to fix food.  Justin comes out and I say “Nice shirt”, he says “ugh, you go change”, I say “nope”. Then we both decide that it doesn’t matter, we’re not going to see anyone we know anyway and off we go in our matching outfits!

I made the BEST treat for myself to eat either during or after golf.

It is:

  • One scoop chocolate protein powder mixed with  just enough water to be the consistency of peanut butter
  • One tablespoon of natural peanut butter, completely mix in with protein powder
  • Granola.  I didn’t measure this just kept adding and stirring until I got the desired amount

I left it in my golf bag for the two hours we played and ended up eating it in the car on the way home!  It was so yummy!  It had a caramel taste and consistency.  I will definitely me making this again!

There was a lot of outside play time with the girls when we got home.

I also ate some éclair dessert!

Then it was back outside for more ball throwing and playing with the dogs.  Have to soak up these nice days as much as possible!

Hope you all had a great start to your week as well!  Today is going to be just as good!


  1. oh yum! that dessert looks delish...In fact I am going to make it right now!

  2. Can I just say I'm OBSESSED with all your silly picture captions :) Love them! Also, too funny that you both were wearing the EXACT same shade of pink while golfing. That's gotta be some married couple ESP right there, haha. And I'm jealous that you know how to golf--that's still on my list of things to do (aka list of things to find the right boy to teach me to do)!

  3. I downloaded google chrome per your suggestion:-) Fingers crossed that it works.

  4. YAY IT WORKED!!! Whoohoo!!! I'm making your peanut butter surprise when I get home. YUM!
