My eats today were pretty standard awesome.





1/3 cup oatmeal, 1/3 banana, 1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese, cinnamon, 1 T grapenuts, 2 T Zoe’s Raisin Granola, 1 T drizzled White Chocolate Wonderful. It took me an hour to finish! So delicious and filling– and pretty. I love all the different textures going on. Totally my breakfast for right now.

Then my boyfriend and I went to the gym where I cranked out 75 minutes of cardio, clocking 551 calories burned. Woohoo bikini challenge 🙂 I love having my HRM, but it kept acting up on the treadmills- it would drop to 55-70, when it was really in the 140-160s. I have an F6 so it shouldn’t have cross-talk. Any ideas? I didn’t have this issue on any other machines, but it happened on 3 different treadmills (different models, even). It was really bizarre (and a little annoying).

What wasn’t annoying was my post-workout eat (which my boyfriend LOOOVES and my sister is going to try!!):

A Green Monster Smoothie Milkshake:


It was so thick and milkshakey, I did what any true milkshake lover would do, I topped that bad boy with some whip cream:



In the mix: 2 cups spinach, 1 cup light plain soy milk, 1 scoop designer chocolate whey protein powder, 1 T flax seeds, 1/3 banana handfull each of strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. I am so in love with this and it is so ridiculously filling.

I updated and revised my resumes today. It was relatively time consuming, but necessary. I have a job fair tomorrow and I know I need to step up my job-hunting in the next few months. WISH ME LUCK 🙂

Hope everyone had a glorious weekend. The weather here in the Bay Area has been perfect: low-70s and sunny. Mmmmm.

What is your perfect weather?

This morning I tried to recreate my delicious breakfast I had at my grandmas:

Beautiful to behold, Delish to eat

Beautiful to behold, Delish to eat

1/3 cup oats, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, cinnamin, sprinkle of Kashi grape-nut-esque cereal, sprinkle of Zoe Cinnamin Raisin granola, drizzle of Maple PB.

SO YUM. And FYI- Zoe’s granola is AWESOME!!! Can’t wait to try the other flavors!

I needed to go to the gym, but I was lacking energy, so I had my FAVORITE pre-workout kick:

FRS low-cal Orange Concentrate

FRS low-cal Orange Concentrate

You mix 2-oz concentrate with 6-oz water, and it’s delicious and nutritious. I can definitely tell when I drink this before a workout- gives me a great energy boost. It has some caffeine, and B-vitamins. Love it.

Ran 5 miles in 41:14 on the treadmill. Glad to knock it out. I came home and am going to go hiking with a friend so I made a delicious Green Monster Smoothie Shake:

Better N' Beer

Sorry it’s sideways. My computer lied to me and said it was the right way. Let’s pretend it’s correct.

The texture was unbelievable- I ate it with a spoon!

Can you see how thick it is??

Like a milkshake- so wonderful.

In the mix:

1 cup light soymilk, 1 scoop Chocolate Whey Protein Powder, 1 T Flax, 1.5 Cups Spinach, handfulls of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries.

I finished off my lunch with a pice of light bread with White Chocolate Wonderful PB. Yum 🙂

Have a great day!

Question of the Day:

If you have a blog, how long does it take you each day? I find that it can take me a while!
