Helloooooo! I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. Besides yesterday’s rain, it has been a beautiful weekend. I did have to work all weekend, but I try to always make the best of it.
Saturday breakfast was…. OIAJ.
Isn’t it sad how much time can go by between your OIAJ. I don’t go through peanut butter too quickly, so it might take me a month or two to get through the next container.
I ❤ you, Mighty Maple peanut butter… but I think next time I’m going to make you on my own.
I got a cooking bug yesterday and decided to make Coconut Banana Bread. I got the recipe from foodfitnessandfun.
I’m loving coconut right now so I knew this would be prefect to make.
Adding my favorite ingredient.
Can you believe I didn’t try a piece of this bread??? Does anyone else do this? Do you make something and then wait until the next day to try? I had already figured out what I was eating for the day, so I figured I would work it into Sunday’s foods. I did take a few slices into work and it got rave reviews.
I also made Holly, from greekyogurtandppleslices, Honey Curry Chicken. Sadly I didn’t take any pictures during the madness of cooking. I can say that I took the chicken to work with me and had it over top of my salad. It was FABULOUS. The flavor was incredible. I will definitely be making this in the future… probably many times.
My lunch consisted of a side salad with a pizza that I had gotten from Target.
This pizza was perfect. I’m a little sad because I got it on clearance (50% off) so I can only figure that they won’t be selling this pizza in the store anymore. Fail! I would have gotten all of them if I knew how good it was going to be.
French Silk for 140 calories… do I have to say anymore?
And Sunday’s breakfast….
Cinnaburst Cheerios with Cocoa Crispy brown rice. Yummy combo!
Saturday I did the final day of the Couch25k week 1 plan. For those of you that don’t know your supposed to walk briskly for 5 minutes, jog for 60 seconds and then walk 90 seconds alternating until you complete 20 minutes. Can I tell you I still struggled a little bit. We’ll see what next week brings. I was supposed to do the Ripped in 30 DVD, but decided to play Just Dance 2 on the Wii with Justine. We danced to 4 songs and it was a great finish to my workouts for the day. I burned over 600 calories. Win! I wasn’t feeling the Ripped DVD anyways that day so I was happy when Justine asked if I wanted to dance.
Sunday I did do the Ripped in 30 DVD and we again danced to about 5 songs on Just Dance 2. It makes working out so much fun
I’m marking down this past week as a success. I exercised 6 days. I tracked my food and stayed consistent on my eats. And since Monday I’ve lost 5 pounds. I might have had a little water weight in the beginning of the week, but I’m keeping the 5 pound loss.
