Happy Weekend!  I hope you all have a good and long one like me!

I drank my pre workout White Flood on the way to the gym.

I went to the gym thinking I was going to work on triceps and I was also going to do a short full body circuit. I had my circuit all written up and ready and when I got there I totally changed my mind!  I still worked on triceps, but I decided to do a burpee challenge too!

burpee challenge

I did a total of 60 burpee’s today. I was going to do a 100 burpee challenge, but I’m sure I will work my way up 🙂 Be looking for it!

After the gym I drank my Beverly International chocolate protein shake with 1/2 almond milk and 1/2 water.

I had a small lunch since I knew we were meeting friends to watch the UK game and I would be eating again in a couple of hours.

So I had a paleo pumpkin walnut muffin with peanut butter. I love these and it’s just a perfect combination.  I also had a handful of cashews.

We went out with our friends Nick and Lindsey to Keystone to watch the UK game.  They lost by 3 points 😦

Keystone is known for their mac n cheese so everyone got it besides me of course.  They have a separate mac n cheese men

u and you can customize it however you want.  Eric got “Nirvana” which had chicken and roasted red peppers, but I did have a few bites.  I got the chicken quesadilla with ranch for dipping!

Lindsey and I decided we were going to be festive and try the fruity beers.  Not a good idea since we only liked two, but we wanted to be adventurous!

I had the “Magic Hat” which was pretty good. It had a spicy taste, but not too spicy.  Then we ordered the banana bread beer which literally tasted like I was drinking banana bread, it was crazy. Too weird for a beer.  And then we tried the ginger beer, which was SUPER strong and gingery.  I only took a few sips.  Lindsey finally got a Raspberry Ale and it was good!  So we like 2 of 4, not too bad I guess.

When I got home I wanted something sweet so I broke into the cookies and after reading a couple other blogs about hot chocolate I decided to make some for myself!

Out with Friends-UK 027

I had two, well actually three cookies, and I only drank half of my hot chocolate… MMMM whip cream!

My husband fell asleep playing X Box- Boy are we getting old!

Off to bed here soon so I can wake up bright and early for CROSSFIT!  Talk about getting old 😉

What is your favorite kind of seasonal beer or Ale?

Anybody have any fun weekend plans?

Any paleo recipes anyone wants to share? I’m always looking for new ones!

HELL WEEKEND! I WOKE UP TODAY TO SNOW!

Thursday night for dinner I had a spaghetti squash bowl.

 In the mix was spaghetti squash of course:  I microwaved the squash just to soften it a bit.. Cut in half and scoop out the seeds.  Drizzle olive oil and salt and paper on top.  Lay on a sheet pan rind up in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour.

Also in the mix, rotel tomatoes (mild). I am not a HOT kinda girl. And some leftover sausage and chicken.

It was pretty tasty, but the rotel was not my favorite.

We also had some carrots n yogurt ranch dip

For dessert, I had two POWER BALLS!  You really need to make these ASAP.  Next time I will double the batch because my husband loves them too meaning they are almost gone!

BREAKFAST: 7 am

For breakfast Friday I had a Microwaveable English Muffin that I borrowed from Tina. You could probably use a variation of coconut flour and almond flour for fewer calories but I made mine with almond flour only.  I figured out that it has approx 270-280 calories depending on how much butter you use.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp melted butter (I used smart balance)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt

Mix ingredients together in a bowl.  Spray a separate bowl with non stick cooking spray (I also use smart balance) and pour in the batter. 

Microwave for 90 seconds.

Allow English muffin to cool and cut in half.

I like to toast mine 🙂

It tastes wonderful and buttery and only has 6 grams of carbs!

I made an egg sandwich with 1 egg and 2 egg whites with laughing cow cinnamon cream cheese! If you haven’t noticed, I am obsessed with this cheese!

I took my almond milk and sandwich to go, shh I didn’t eat it in the car 🙂

For a snack around 11 am I had a paleo pumpkin walnut muffin. So filling!

For lunch around 2:30 I had a tuna patty with ketchup. (I know tuna doesn’t usually look that pretty, sorry) Its hard taking good-looking pictures in the break room at work 🙂

2012-12-28_14-19-30_442

Ingredients:

  • one can of tuna
  • one egg
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • (next time I will prob only use 1 tbsp- It was a little dry)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • * Somtimes I add chopped spinach, and onions. You can add anything else you like!
  • * Sometimes I make mine with oats instead of flour also.

I also had some cauliflower and yogurt ranch dressing.  Also in the mix- a handful of mixed nuts (almonds, cashews, pecans)

Snack around 5:00

2 power balls, again. I think they are gone now, so sad.

For dinner we had chipotle, my favorite! I get a salad with just a small scoop of brown rice, chicken, and cheese.

Guacamole on the side so I can dip each bite how I want.

After dinner we watched TED. This is one of the funniest movies I’ve seen in a long time.

I hope you all had a great Friday, and have a good weekend!
