Anniversary

Happy anniversary to my wonderful husband, Danny! I love you! PicMonkey Collage Breakfast

Breakfast this morning was strawberry peanut butter overnight oats…even though there’s snow on the ground, I still went with a cold breakfast. 011 My oats included:

  • strawberry Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. PB2

I mixed all the ingredients up last night and let it sit in the fridge overnight and then I topped it with blueberries this morning.

Today’s Workout

  • Women on Weights Class – 45 minutes
  • HIIT Stairmaster workout – 20 minutes

20140415_112851 In Women on Weights class today we focused on abs, triceps, and biceps. After the class, I did a 20 minute high intensity interval training workout on the Stairmaster. I haven’t been on the Stairmaster in quite awhile and I was sweaty by the time I was done. I did climb as high as the Eiffel Tower :)

Post workout, I had a CorePower chocolate drink that Danny got me as a morning anniversary present. He knows me too well. 20140415_113416 Lunch

Lunch was delicious today. I made English muffin hummus melts. 005 They are amazing. The spinach, cheese, and hummus is such a great combination.

Have a great afternoon!

  • Ever use the Stairmaster?

Peanut Butter Oats and a Workout

Good afternoon!

Today’s Workout

  • 3 miles outside
  • Strength training
  • Stretching

It’s so beautiful here in Chicagoland that I ran outside today! I parked by the gym and ran three miles outside. The first two miles were good but by the third mile my hip really started to ache so I had a take a few walking breaks. Darn hip.

After running, I went inside the gym and did some strength training.

IMG_20140409_102852

(For my run, I wore my Garmin and Polar heart rate monitor and the calorie count is different by about 100 calories. I know I should get an all in one device, but I wondered if anyone knew which one were more accurate on the calories burned? The polar or the garmin?)

I did the following supersets with no rest between exercises and one minute rest in-between sets. I did each set three times.

Super set #1:

  • incline biceps curls x12
  • plank to row x12

Superset #2:

  • standing hammer curls x12
  • reverse flys x12

Superset #3 (abs):

  • plank – 1 minute
  • sit-ups with medicine ball x20
  • hip bridges x15

After I was done, I stretched for a short time.

Breakfast

Breakfast today was something a little different than my usual protein pancakes or eggs and toast. I made peanut butter oatmeal.

IMG_20140409_073523

For my oatmeal, I used:

  • 1/4 cup Perfect Portions Quaker Oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp. PB2

That’s it! I mixed everything up and cooked it in the microwave for about 90 seconds and topped it with a few blueberries. It was so fast, easy, and delicious!

After the gym, I had a hair appointment and then I stopped at Starbucks for an unsweetened ice tea – the perfect afternoon treat on a beautiful day :)

IMG_20140409_130409

Smoothies

Yesterday I made my first smoothie of the year! I swear I live on smoothies in the spring and summer.

IMG_20140408_155030

My smoothie yesterday had frozen strawberries, plain Greek yogurt, PB2 (I’m on a PB2 kick lately), almond milk, and ice. It was so good and I was sad when it was gone.

Have a great afternoon!

Making Me Move!

Hello! My internet and TV were down yesterday so I wasn’t able to post, but they’re working again today (super slow) so I’m back. :)

On Tuesday night, we made a stop at Whole Foods. There are few items that I love from Whole Foods that I don’t mind paying a little bit more money for – salmon, pineapple, and PB2. Actually, Whole Foods is the only store near me that I can find PB2. And why is their pineapple so delicious? It’s just pineapple?!

IMG_20140325_194308

I also got some Annie’s smoky maple BBQ sauce to try out – looks good!

Yesterday morning, I took Jaden to the allergy doctor.

20140326_085810

His allergies has been terrible the last few days and he has been sniffing non-stop. He gets allergy shots every few weeks, so I guess with the pollen in the air and allergens in the allergy shot, it was like an overdose in his body.

My poor child and his never ending allergies.

After his appointment, I dropped him off at school. I had about 45 minutes to kill before I had a dentist appointment, so I went to the gym. Usually, if you’re short on time, a HIIT workout is the best thing to do.

High intensity interval training is  a workout that alternates bursts of high intensity cardio followed by a less intense recovery. This will help you burn more calories and build endurance.

After my workout, I went to the dentist – I have no cavities and clean teeth.

Breakfast

Breakfast this morning was peanut butter chocolate chip protein pancakes.

002

You can’t see the chocolate but it’s in there! I only use about 1/2 a tablespoon of chocolate chips.

Today’s Workout

  • 3.5 miles – indoor track

While yesterday’s workout was short and intense, today’s was slow and steady. My calves have been getting really tight lately which makes running not so fun. It takes about three miles for them to loosen up, and by then I have to leave to pick up my niece.

This was the last day that I’ll run before the Shamrock Shuffle 8k. While I’m not prepared to run the whole thing, I think I should be good to walk/run it.

Fit Bit

I have been wearing my Fit Bit for about a day and a half so far and I am really liking it.

IMG_20140326_075041

I did notice two things:

  1. I obsessively check the data all day long.

Since there is a Fit Bit app, I can check my stats from my phone anywhere, anytime.

2. It makes me move more.

Being able to check my data makes me more accountable. Yesterday, I went grocery shopping and ususally I try to carry in as many bags as humanly possible at one time so I don’t have to make numerous trips. But yesterday, I decided to only carry a couple of bags into the house at a time so I purposely had to make many trips that way I could get more steps in.

I was really close to my goal of 10,000 steps last night so I walked back and forth in our room so I could get in some more steps. Danny just thought I was nuts.

I do think the Fit Bit makes you realize that you need to move more during the day, and I really like that about the device.

After I ran today, I was super close to 10,000 steps by 11 am. By 12 pm, I had in my 10,000 steps for the day. Then, Fit Bit sends you a nice email congratulating you on being awesome for getting in 10,000 steps. So far, I’m liking this little guy :)

IMG_20140327_110609

In dessert news, I found these Kim and Scott’s frozen juice treats at the store. They are only 60 calories and perfect for after dinner when I am craving something sweet.

IMG_20140326_193646

Did anyone else use to freeze juice as a kid and scrape it up to eat like a slushy? Or was that just me?

Tomorrow is Friday and then my kids are on Spring Break! Let the craziness begin!

  • Do you get a Spring Break or are your kids on Spring Break?
  • Do you ever do HIIT or tabata workouts?
  • Do you have allergies?
  • Favorite “healthy” dessert?

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes – Fit for Fitness

 

Happy Friday!

Yesterday’s Workout:

  • 3.5 miles – indoor track
  • stretching

In an attempt to get ready for the upcoming Shamrock Shuffle 8k next week, I planned to run four miles yesterday. That didn’t happen. Instead I ran three miles and walked half a mile.

My whole entire lower right side refused to cooperate. My right side was all like, Yay! Running! We could do this all day! My right side wanted to punch me in the face.

My right glute is still sore from Butts and Guts class, my hip started to ache, and my calves decided to get tight again. At this point, I don’t care if I have to walk the entire 8k. I have no goals or hopes & dreams going into it, except to finish the darn thing.

I made sure to stretch after my run and I foam rolled the heck out of my glute when I got home.

IMG_20140320_120200

Breakfast

I was recently contacted by Shari’s Berries about creating with a healthy recipe that included chocolate. They’re working on a project during the month of March called Fit for Fitness – basically how you can incorporate foods like chocolate into your diet and still live a healthy lifestyle. And like I always say, I believe in everything in moderation.

001

Chocolate comes from the cacao plant and actually provides many healthy antioxidants. Dark chocolate usually tends to be the most healthy and the more nonfat cocoa solids a chocolate product contains, the more antioxidants it has.

I didn’t have any dark chocolate on hand, so I incorporated semi-sweet chocolate into my recipe – chocolate chip peanut butter pancakes! I have been loving protein pancakes lately, so I decided to try out a recipe using chocolate chips. To date, it is my favorite pancake recipe I have made!

009

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes   Serves: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup oats (I used Quaker Perfect Portions)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp. PB2 or peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp. chocolate chips.

Directions:

  1. Add oats and water to a bowl, stir, and microwave approx. one minute.
  2. Beat egg whites into oats, mix in protein powder and peanut butter, lightly stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Cook pancakes on a heated pan or griddle over medium heat approx. 2-3 minutes on each side.
  4. Serve with your favorite toppings or garnish with a few more chocolate chips.

These pancakes were delicious! Nothing beats peanut butter and chocolate!

016

Today’s Workout

  • Taught BodyPump – 60 minutes

I taught BodyPump this morning and afterwards I had a peanut butter and jelly Quest bar.

IMG_20140321_113405

More peanut butter!

Lunch

Lunch this afternoon was chicken fajitas.

011

I mentioned that I have been trying to add chicken to my diet lately for more protein. I am not a huge fan of chicken and don’t like eating it by itself, but I don’t mind it in other things – like fajitas/tacos.

I cooked the chicken with peppers, red onions, and salt-free fajita seasoning. I ate them on corn tortillas topped with cabbage and mango.

008

I also discovered a new delicious flavor of Sparkling ice water – cherry limeade.

002

The bottle doesn’t say new, but I have never seen this flavor before. My favorite is the pineapple coconut but the cherry limeade is a close second!

Have a great weekend!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes

Question: What is better than chocolate and peanut butter?

Answer: Nothing. Nothing is better than chocolate and peanut butter. It’s pretty much the best food combination ever invented. Ever.
I realize that protein pancakes have been around forever and I am a little late jumping on the protein pancake bandwagon, but it seems like I’m that way with many things. The important thing is that I have finally discovered the goodness that is protein pancakes.

I was always worried that they would taste too “eggy”, but they don’t. I have made them with oats and without oats and neither version tastes too eggy, although I prefer the version with oats.

I decided to experiment a bit in the kitchen this morning and came up with a delicious chocolate peanut butter protein pancake recipe.

1646

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Pancakes     Serves: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cups oats (I used Quaker Oats Perfect Portions)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • approx. 1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder (I used one packet of Cellucor chocolate protein powder)
  • 2 tbsp. PB2

1661

Directions:

  1. Mix oats and water in a bowl. Microwave approx. 1 minute.
  2. Whisk in egg whites, protein powder, and PB2.
  3. Cook on a hot pan for approx. 2-3 minutes per side.
  4. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Calories (without toppings): 229 calories     Protein: 30 grams

I topped my pancakes with organic blue agave maple syrup and blueberries.

Today’s Workout

  • Women on Weights Class – 45 minutes (core and legs)

I pretty sure my legs are dead. After doing BodyPump two days in a row and working on legs in women on weights class today, I can no longer move my legs.

Post workout, I had my last cookies and cream Quest bar.

instaImage_24

I have to stop by GNC and pick some more of these up. I also want to get a few of the cookie dough flavor, but last time I was there, they weren’t in stock.

Lunch

Yesterday for lunch, I used up some tilapia taco mix that I had from Whole Foods.

IMG_20140310_132654

It was so delicious that I was still thinking about tacos today. Luckily, I had the ingredients at home to whip up my own fish tacos.

1664

I used Mahi Mahi, red and green pepper, red onions, and Mrs. Dash salt free taco seasoning. I topped the tacos with mango salsa from Whole Foods. The salsa is really good, but so spicy. I try to pick around the hot peppers.

Mexican food is my all time favorite. I could eat it every single day.

Have a great afternoon!

  • What food could you eat every day and not get sick of it? I could eat tacos and chocolate :)
  • Favorite food combo? Mine is chocolate and pb and bagelwiches with jelly.

BodyPump X2

wGood afternoon!

Yesterday’s Workout

  • Arc trainer – 20 minutes
  • BodyPump – 60 minutes

Yesterday’s time change really messed me up. I was up late on Saturday night and I was up really early on Sunday morning. BodyPump starts at 9:30 am on Sundays and I kept thinking that even though it was 9:30, it would feel 8:30. Somehow, I got it stuck in my head that BodyPump was at 8:30 am.

So, yesterday morning, I showed up at the gym at 8am for the 9:30 am BodyPump class. It was too late to go back home, so I just spent a little time on the arc trainer and chatted with a few other gym-goers for awhile. I got very little sleep the night before so I was really out of it all day.

I kept falling asleep at random times and places during the day – on the couch for a half hour, in Jaden’s bed for 20 minutes. It was a really weird day. Even though the time change is only an hour, it messes my body up for a couple of days. I am glad that it’s staying lighter outside later now though!

Breakfast

I had more protein pancakes for breakfast today – these things are so good!

IMG_20140310_073722

I used vanilla Cellucor protein powder this time and they came out a little bit thinner. I am going to play around with adding PB2 and using more egg whites instead of protein powder. There is so many options when it comes to protein pancakes!

Today’s Workout

  • BodyPump – 60 minutes
  • Arc Trainer – 12 minutes

I usually don’t take BodyPump two days in a row, but the instructors at my gym are teaching the new release, which I am still trying to learn. (I got it later than the other instructors, so I am late learning it). It helps me to take the class with someone else teaching it. This new release has a lot of different timing which I am trying to learn.

After BodyPump, I spent a little time on the Arc trainer while waiting for my brother to meet me at the gym so I could take my niece. I passed the time on the arc trainer by watching Saved by the Bell.

20140310_103137

I used to watch that show everyday when I was growing up.

Post workout, I had a Power Core strawberry banana protein drink before going to Old Navy with my niece.

20140310_105007

Have a great afternoon!

  •  Did you workout today?

New Goals

Good afternoon!

Breakfast

Breakfast this morning was an egg white omelet with red and green pepper, red onion, spinach, green onion, and mozzarella cheese.

IMG_20140306_073340

I also had a side of pineapple because I love pineapple – it’s one of my top five favorite fruits. Hmmm…now I’m thinking about delicious fruit. Here are my top five favorite fruit, in no particular order:

  • watermelon
  • pineapple
  • strawberries
  • mango
  • apples

After breakfast, I worked for awhile and then I worked out.

Today’s Workout:

  • Core workout – 20 minutes
  • HIIT workout on indoor track – 25 minutes
  • Stretching - 5 minutes

I started my workout with some core work. These are the exercises that did:

  • 30 knee crunches (knees at 90 degrees)
  • 20 leg raises
  • 25 flutter kicks
  • 60 sec plank
  • 30 cross crunches (foot on opposite knee, crunch toward opposite knee)
  • 20 bicycles
  • 20 heel touches
  • 20 supermans

I did each exercise back-to-back and then repeated the circuit one more time. I did skip the bicycles crunches the second time around because my abs couldn’t take anymore :)

After the core work, I did a HIIT workout on the indoor track. I started by walking one lap and then running one lap as fast as I could – I mean, all out sprinting.

I ran the running laps really fast – I can’t even remember the last time I ran that fast. It really got my heart rate up and I sweat more in those 25 minutes than I’ve sweat all week. I finished up with five minutes of stretching.

Post workout, I had half a Cellucor chocolate protein shake and a Larabar.

20140306_111813

Yesterday, I went to Barnes and Noble and bought a book called The New Rules of Lifting for Life. I started reading it with my afternoon snack when I realized that it’s actually a book for middle age people that want to start weight lifting. I don’t feel like I am quiet middle age yet…so I decided to return it. How old is middle age? I don’t even know.

IMG_20140305_160846

Since I had to work last night, Danny was nice enough to exchange the book at Barnes and Noble for me and get The New Rules of Lifting for Women.

003

Since I can’t really run as much as I used to, I am looking for a new fitness goal. I really want to work on building more muscle and this book has so much awesome information.

It gives you a whole six month weight lifting plan, discusses why long endurance cardio doesn’t always help build muscles, why weightlifting is more beneficial than cardio, and why eating the correct macronutrients are important.

I found lots of great information for building muscle in the book, but if you’re a long endurance athlete, this book might not be for you.

In delicious dessert news, I found these dark chocolate covered strawberries at the grocery store over the weekend.

005

Only 60 calories for four strawberries halves and they are delicious! These are the perfect after dinner treat if your craving something sweet. Yum!

Have a great afternoon!

  • Do you have any fitness goals that you’re currently working on?
  • Do you lift weights?
  • Favorite healthy dessert? Favorite not-so-healthy dessert?
  • What are your top five favorite fruits?

Weekend Randomness

Good afternoon - I hope you all had a great weekend! Can you believe it’s March already?!

Saturday

On Saturday night, we went out to celebrate my dad and stepmom’s birthdays.

My dad got this awesome looking cake from a nearby bakery:

20140301_203129

I will admit that I didn’t eat very well this weekend. I worked so hard for 12.5 days and then I just went a little overboard with the food during the weekend.

Honestly, it sucked and I was upset with myself last night. I ate so good for almost two weeks and was feeling really good about myself and then I threw all my hard work out the window over the course of the weekend.

Of course, there is a difference between enjoying yourself in moderation and going overboard. I went overboard. And when that happens, I recognize how it makes me feel physically and emotionally, and I remember that for the next time I’m reaching for that 15th cookie :)

Sometimes you fall off the horse and you just need to get right back on, and that’s what I am doing.

Sunday

On Sunday morning, I taught BodyPump at the gym. It was a smaller class due to the snow, but Danny took the class too, so that was fun.

Sunday afternoon, we had lunch at my in-laws house. I spent the afternoon playing Sonic on their old Sega.

20140302_155411

My brother and I grew up playing that game and it reminded me of my childhood playing it again.

Today’s Workout

  • Ran three miles – indoor track
  • Abs and stretching

IMG_20140303_112452

Last week, I was running two miles at a time. Today, I took it up to three miles. I am slowly increasing my mileage to see how my hip and quad feel.

When I am running, my hip aches, but it feels fine later in the day. My quad doesn’t hurt while I run usually, but it hurts afterwards. So much fun.

I feel pretty good running right now and am working up to 5 miles for the Shamrock Shuffle. After that I’ll probably stick to 5ks just so I don’t hurt my hip anymore.

Speaking of 5ks, I signed up for my first color run. It’ll also be Jaden’s first 5k – which means I’ll be walking most of it with him which I look forward to because he’s so happy about it.

44497856-c6f6-4ed1-8ef5-53901c7b2c9f

Danny and Jacob are going to run it, and my dad and stepmom are going to walk it. Jaden is so excited to be doing his first 5k, and he’s really excited that it’s a color run.

I am back on track with my eating today. I have been hearing good things about Earth Balance peanut butter, so when I was at Whole Foods last week, I picked up a jar to try. I got the creamy natural peanut butter with flax seed.

IMG_20140302_081236

They also have a coconut peanut butter that I’ve heard is really good, but I’m not a huge coconut fan. The regular peanut butter was really good and I would definitely buy it again.

Have a great afternoon!

  • Did you workout today?
  • What was your favorite game as a kid?
  • Favorite peanut butter? I usually just buy the Jif Natural peanut butter.

PJ’s Organics Breakfast Burritos

PJ’s Organics

Breakfast was something a little bit different this morning – a PJ’s Organics breakfast burrito!

I was recently sent three of the PJ’s Organics breakfast burritos to try out. I was really excited that these products are organic and they offered a “skinny” breakfast burrito.

021

The three burritos I received:

  • Skinny Breakfast Burrito – organic egg white, feta cheese, spinach, and sun-dried tomato – 300 calories, 15 grams protein, 2 grams fiber
  • Surf’s Up Breakfast Burrito – organic eggs, ground beef, jalapenos, and cheddar cheese – 330 calories, 14 grams protein, 3 grams fiber
  • Denver Breakfast Burrito – organic eggs, cheddar cheese, red and green bell peppers – 340 calories, 14 grams protein, 2 grams of fiber

012

I don’t eat ground beef so I left the Surf’s Up burrito for Danny :)

002

Danny brought his to work this morning and texted me saying that he thought it was really good.

I was really excited about trying the skinny burrito. It’s basically all my favorite things rolled up in a tortilla. I’m all for a breakfast that is quick and easy!

PicMonkey Collage

The skinny burrito was delicious and very filling.

I also love that all three breakfast burritos have under 340 calories and contain a good amount of protein.

If you love Mexican food like me, be sure to check out PJ’s Organics regular burritos too!

Since the kids don’t have school today, I worked out at home. I practiced the BodyPump release that I will be teaching Sunday and then I did the Jillian Michaels abs DVD.

Since there’s no school and I don’t have to work, the kids and I are going to head to Whole Foods later. The closest Whole Foods is about 25 minutes away. I am almost glad that we don’t have one closer or I would always be broke :)

Have a great weekend!

  • What do you usually eat for breakfast?
  • What’s your favorite store?
  • Any plans for the weekend?

Disclaimer: I was sent the PJ’s Organics burritos to review at no charge. All opinions are my own.

Eating Healthy at Restaurants

Good afternoon!

Yesterday’s Evening Workout

  • Zumba – 60 minutes
  • Ran 1 mile

Yesterday afternoon, we took my dad out for a last-minute birthday lunch.

20140224_123853

Sometimes I actually wear real clothes and do my hair and make-up…

IMG_20140224_090403

…although I much prefer workout clothes and VS sweatpants.

Sometimes when you’re focusing on eating healthy, going to a restaurant can really sabotage your efforts. You want to be social and have fun, but you also want to eat healthy at the same time.

I used to be the kind of person that loved to go to restaurants to really enjoy myself which meant appetizers, whatever I wanted to eat, maybe a few drinks or dessert. But that can really start to add up especially if you’re eating out every weekend. I think that it’s fine to do that every once in awhile but not all the time.

Eating healthy at a restaurant doesn’t have to be boring.

We took my dad to a restaurant called Cheddar’s yesterday. I have never been there before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. A great tip for eating healthy at restaurants is to check the menu online before you go so you know what your options are.

Most restaurants have a “lighter” menu with food choices that are lower calories, gluten-free, or lower sodium. Luckily, Cheddar’s has a great lighter menu that I ordered from. I ate so good all last week and I really wanted to continue on that path.

I ordered the miso salmon that included a small portion on ginger rice and plain steamed broccoli. The whole thing was a little over 500 calories.

IMG_20140224_131533

That was my first time having miso salmon and it was so delicious. I will definitely be ordering it next time I see it on a menu. My meal tasted great and left me full and satisfied. I left the restaurant feeling good instead of overstuffed.

I will admit that I did eat two French fries, Hey, I’m not perfect. And I figure that two little fries is better than a whole plateful. I love fries.

Just because you are dining out doesn’t mean that you need to eat unhealthy. You can eat and still be healthy and happy.

Here’s a few tips on how to order healthy when eating at a restaurant:

  • Ask for your dressing on the side and just dip for fork in it before taking a bite of your salad.
  • Ask for whole wheat bread for sandwiches or burgers.
  • Order water or unsweetened tea to drink.
  • Ordered dishes that are bakes, steamed, or broiled rather than dishes that are fried – things like grilled chicken or fish.
  • Get vegetables on the side instead of French fries or bread.
  • Avoid all you can eat buffets.
  • Order off the appetizer menu for your main dish – the portions are often smaller.
  • Ask your half of your food to go – restaurants portions are often huge.
  • Avoid cream sauces and gravies.
  • If you’re really craving something not-so-healthy, split it with a spouse or friend.
  • Choose fruit for dessert.

After my dad’s birthday lunch, we came home and later in the evening, I headed to the gym for Zumba. I followed Zumba with a one mile run on the indoor track.

Today’s Workout

  • Women on Weights class – 45 minutes
  • Practiced BodyPump – 30 minutes

Breakfast this morning was egg whites and French toast made with Ezekiel bread.

IMG_20140225_073404

After getting Jaden on the bus, I worked for awhile and then took the Women on Weights class at the gym. This week, we worked on backs and legs. When I got home, I practiced BodyPump for about 30 minutes.

Have a great afternoon!

  • Do you usually splurge at restaurants?
  • What tips do you have for eating healthy at a restaurant?
