Good Morning!

WIAW

(This is actually what I ate on Monday)

What I Ate Wednesday: Love Your Veggies

Thanks Jenn for hosting!

Breakfast:

I made a new version of the Microwave English Muffin today.  The Microwaveable English Muffin that I used to make like 5 times a week was awesome but I always had extra “bread” and I ended up throwing some of it away half of the time- how wasteful!

So today I just changed up some of the ingredients a little bit.  I used less almond flour and egg, but that’s about the only differences!

Paleo English Muffin

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons almond flour
1 egg white (the real thing)
pinch salt
1 tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp baking powder

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together into a bowl.  Pour batter into a separate bowl that is sprayed with non stick cooking spray.  Microwave for 90 seconds. Let cool before cutting. Toast if desired!

I also had 1/2 of a grapefruit.

This particular grapefruit is from straight from Florida and it was the best one I’ve ever had.  It was SO juicy and wasn’t too tart.

Lunch:

Veggie salad with avocado, topped with a fried egg. Strawberries on the side.

Bake for 40 Minutes.

Happy Hump Day Wednesday: It’s Almost the Weekend again!

WIAW

Wednesday morning I had to go back to work, boo.  I loved the break!  I was the laziest I have ever been yesterday and it was great.  I was going to take down my Christmas decorations, but that didn’t happen.  Maybe my next off day it will.

Breakfast:

For breakfast I made a microwaveable English muffin.  I topped it with laughing cow cinnamon cream cheese spread and eggs (1 egg, 2 egg whites).  Nothing to crazy or out of the box for me!

I also had 1/2 of a grapefruit- metabolism booster!

Lunch was leftover  Laura’s lean chili and a salad with tomato, cucumbers, avocado, feta cheese, and orange pepper.

Another snack later on was a handful of mixed nuts- mostly almonds, and some pita chips.

I went to crossfit after work:  This was  my 4th beginner class, and I still get nervous every time!

BEGINNER CLASS

Skills:

Clean and Jerk
Box Jumps
Push-Ups

WOD:
8 Minute AMRAP:
3 Clean and Jerks
6 Push-Ups
9 Box Jumps

Let me just say I pretty much suck at pushups  😦

After my workout I wasn’t that hungry but I had shredded BBQ in the crock pot at home (made with Stubbs, no high fructose corn syrup, bbq sauce).  I had a little bit with some orange pepper and cucumber slices with spinach and artichoke humus.  It doesnt really look that pretty but that BBQ was very good!

Then another protein shake before bed.  I swear this stuff is so good!

I was thinking about going to Beefcake and getting some supplements soon… I got their new magazine and all the women in it take supplements like its their life, for example: DENSITY to help lose fat and increase muscle mass, ULTRA 40 for preservation of lean muscle mass, and MUSCLE SYNERGY to help with post workout soreness and help build lean muscle mass.

A little blurry sorry.

My husband went the other day and stocked up and for the new year I was wondering if I should.

The only extra supplements I take right now are multivitamins, vitamin C, Fish Oil, sometimes CLA, and biotin for hair and nails.

I definitely do not want to look like this girl: Her shoulders look very manly 😦

Any thoughts on taking extra supplements?

What kind of supplements do you take?
