Good Morning and Happy Friday!

I am on my way to my sister’s graduation from the Police Academy this morning!  I can’t believe she is almost done.  I remember when she was being sworn in.  Here we were:


Congrats sis!

Anyways, on to some eats, and some new things I have tried lately.

Stuffed Sweet potatoes.  You can literally mix anything with a sweet potato and it tastes good 🙂


Quest Cookie Dough Bites


Cut A Chocolate chip cookie dough quest bar into 4 pieces.  Bake for about ten minutes at 350 degrees until they puff up a bit (like cookies).  Eat plain or top with coconut or almond butter! YUM

More sweet potato, broccoli with laughing cow cheese mixed in, mini babybell, chicken


Shakeology: Vanilla

Sorry if you like this stuff, but I couldn’t even take more than one sip without gagging, I did not like the flavor at all.  I mixed it with almond milk but even if I mixed it with lots of fruit and made a smoothie I think the flavor is so strong that I still wouldn’t like it.  Just my opinion #sorryimnotsorry


Sunwarrior Protein

Another protein that I just did not like!  It did not mix very well at all and kind of tasted like dirt to be honest.  Oh well, I’ll stick with what I know I like for now 🙂

Laura said she mixed hers with oats and it tasted good so maybe I’ll have to try it that way next time.


Egg White Oats with blueberries and chunky peanut butter- The Bomb!


Quest “peanut butter sandwich”

This may not look like anything fancy but let me tell you it was!  Of course another chocolate chip cookie dough quest bar (my favorite flavor) cut in half, smash some peanut butter between the two and microwave for about 30 seconds.


Think Thin Bites

I have seen these before but never tried them. I do love the regular think thin bars but I kind of took a break from them.  These little bites are great if you just need a little something 🙂

First I want to tell you the winner of the About Time Protein Giveaway!  The winner is:

Nicole @ FruitnFitness

I would love to win this package to try the new flavors of protein powder! Currently I use vanilla a lot because it is so versatile.

Nicole, email me at fitcupcaker at gmail dot com with your address so I can mail your goodies 🙂

Yesterday before I hit the gym I made an awesome breakfast.  I can take my time with breakfast when I don’t have to work and I love it because it’s my favorite meal!


1 egg – 3 egg whites – lean ground turkey – handful of spinach – tomatoes – sprinkle of cheese = perfection

A little while later I went to the gym and did an awesome plank workout that I kind of adapted from Lori and Michelle.  They always have great workouts.  They have a 5 minute plank workout (but I can’t do a plank for 5 minutes) so I came up with a tabata workout for the abs!

I used my gymboss timer and set it for 30 seconds work 10 seconds rest.  I did each exercise for 3 rounds so the whole workout is 6 minutes long.


I love using my gymboss timer for tabatas.  If you don’t have one of these you can easily download a tabata timer app to your phone and it works just as good 🙂

So here’s the workout!

plank tabata

Rest 30 seconds to 1 minutes between exercises.

Here is some more information on the following workouts:

Twist Side to Side



Alternating Knee to Elbow
