Hey there my fellow bloggy friends!
It's Saturday...whoo hoo...my favorite day of the week! I was going to work today, but decided not to last night. I'm so lucky in that I decide which days of the week I work. And I have until 11PM the night before to decide if I want to be "added" to the following day's schedule. It takes discipline big time cause it's easy to just keep putting it off till the "next day". I've learned my lesson a few times..lol
Yesterday, I woke up very early and worked out to PC3. Back and chest with a gozillian Sumo squats and standard squats. So, yesterday finished up the third week in the push circuit. I'm really starting to see a difference in my legs and booty. Got to be all those lunges and squats that Chalene has me doing. Is there a better way to get those sexy legs and behind then with doing lunges and squats? I don't think so! LOL!
After working out, SR and I headed downstairs to the kitchen to have our recovery meal. We don't eat together usually, since she literally lives right across the street from me...but Thursday night, I planned ahead and got my crockpot out and made Recipe: Crock Pot Pumpkin Oats « Broccoli Hut
for us to have Friday morning. OM-Goodness was it divine delish! So sweet and creamy....we loved every bite! We also had a plain Protein GM shake without the complex carb added to it to balance out the protein/carb ratio.
This was made using UVAM and topped with jumbo raisins and walnuts...this will be a do-over recipe again and again..you all have to try it!
After eating, SR ran home to get ready and I hit the shower and got ready and we headed off to do a little fun food shopping. First we went to an asian market called Mekong market. Picked up a couple of Kabocha squash for 49 cents a lb. Woweee, what a bargain!
Got one of these to try. Yes I only bought one..in case I don't like it..lol Apple/Pear..anyone every try one?
I also got this
After we left MeKong market, we decided to stop for lunch at Mimi's cafe...a small, cozy cafe decorated in a french cottage theme... with pretty linens, delicious fresh food at bargain prices...oh and great service. They have something called "just enough" menus....perfect portion sizes. Have any of you eaten at Mimi's before? How do you like it? Anyways, I had my "laxed" meal consisting of a pork sandwich on cabata bread, salad, iced tea, and a little "just enough" sized sliver of chocolate brownie with a tensie tiny scoop of vanilla ice cream. I love their just enough menu....you don't get those overwhelmingly huge portions that you have to deal with.
After lunch, we headed to Trader joes so that I could finally get a few items that I am either out of, or darn near...lol Blue chips (hubby is addicted), a container of Mediterranean Hummus (I'm addicted), 3 containers of non fat greek yogurt, organic sweet tomatoes, Raw crunchy unsalted almond butter, loaf of ezekiel sprouted bread (not pictured), agave nectar, cereal (for other family members and myself to try on laxed day), some Almond milk, and a bottle of their great EVOO
Foodie treasures of the day.. :D
Last night SR and her sweet hubby came over for movie night. We watched Powder Blue, drank a bottle of wine (I only had a 1/2 glass) and ate homeade olive oil popcorn....what more could a girl ask for? LOL! Nice enjoyable evening.
Ok, Laxed day is officially over..didn't do too bad at all....ate clean for all meals except lunch, oh and that 1/2 glass of wine..... so as of the minute my eyes popped open this morning...it's time to get back to the task at hand....Linda gets fit continues on!!
Keep it clean
