I want to start off with this:

I woke up this morning and had a light breakfast before I went to my 5th beginner crossfit class.  I had 1/2 of a banana with some peanut butter.  Also a  mini babybel.


At the beginner class we learned double unders, burpees, and thrusters. I hate burpees, and I am happy when I am done doing them. But I have to say I caught on to double under’s pretty quick.


 That’s me: Sara / Time: 7:05  I think that’s pretty good for a beginner!  PJN better be a guy or I got crushed!

We also did elbow planks for a cool down- yea a cool down!

1 minute plank : 30 second rest

Repeat for a total of 3 Rounds


I was craving french toast so I whipped some up for brunch when I got home.  I used whole wheat sandwich thins because I didn’t have any bread, but it was still VERY good.

WINNER breakfast in my eyes.  I also had some turkey sausage patties.  Sorry I had to dig in, before I got a picture.


Sandwich Thin Cinnamon French Toast:

1 Egg

Almond Milk




Peanut butter and coconut topping

french toast

french toast 2

After brunch I cleaned a little bit and took down the Christmas decorations, so sad….But happy to have my house back in order.  I didn’t to the Christmas tree yet, that’s another day’s project in itself!

I think there is something on the lens of my camera because they all look blurry today. I’ll fix this!

Snack time came pretty quick and I was starving ALL day long.

Green tea, mango,  mixed nuts, and a mini babybel.

I also bought some Kettle Chips at the store that I wanted to try, so I had a few  🙂  Yes, I was starving!

Last week I wrote about the Jorge Cruise diet.  My friend let me borrow her book for a few days so I could look over some recipes.

(I fixed my camera btw)

I like this book because it has recipes with the pictures and tells you what exactly you need to buy from the store.  It also  has pages called “belly bad” and “belly good” and gives pictures of the foods you should and shouldn’t buy and eat.

This is a page about alcohol.  If you are going to drink it, the Belly Good side tells you which ones you should lean towards.

Breakfast was on the menu for dinner so I used a recipe from this book that I tweaked slightly: Zesty Veggie Quiche Muffins.

 I also had a side of ezekial toast and blackberries.


Zesty Veggie Quiche Muffins:

  • 6 whole eggs
  • 4 tbsp almond milk
  • 1/2 orange bell pepper- chopped
  • 1/4 head of fresh Broccoli- chopped
  • Tabasco or any Hot Sauce to taste
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Cooking Spray  (I used smart balance)
  • 8 strips of bacon cooked and chopped
  • Shredded Cheese (any kind you like or have on hand)- I used a combo of Mozzarella and Mild Cheddar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Whisk the eggs, milk, and hot sauce until combined
  • Add cheese, and veggies to mixture
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Coat 12-muffin tin with cooking spray
  • Divide the meat into each muffin tin ( Mine made 9) and top with egg mixture
  • Bake for approximately 15-18 minutes



Very Delicious dinner thanks to Jorge!

Tribute to the Pups:

Why is it that the dogs have to take ALL of their bones out of their basket.  One is not sufficient enough.  And of course I am the only one who picks them up!
