hi, guys! i did a good job of documenting today and thought i’d share it. i have lots of peeps in the holiday hustle asking what i am eating now that my challenge is over.. so i thought i’d share my full day today.

mondays are rough, i am to be at work an hour and a half earlier than usual. i have meetings back to back, so i don’t get to eat until several hours after i’ve been awake. i did have my spark (in lieu of coffee) and took my vitamins, thermoplus, and catalyst.

around 9:45 i was able to have breakfast.. a dark chocolate protein shake

…with a side of work ;) 

NewImage

lunch came around 1:30 and i threw together a grain salad using these ingredients.

NewImage

the vegetable & grain salad from trader joe’s is AMAZING. one container is two servings. it’s lots of different grains and beans and veggies.. look how yummy!

NewImage

i served half of the grain salad mix over spinach and arugula then i added 4 oz of precooked chicken breast on top. i added some of this dressing.. personal fave..

NewImage

and, of course, mustard. my BFF.

NewImage

can’t wait to eat the second half of this lunch tomorrow! i loved it!

i got home around 4 and had a snack. i picked up this chili mustard at the farmer’s market and paired it with some precooked turkey breast.

NewImage

i wish you guys could all try this mustard! penny and randy wished they could try it, too.

NewImage

i will have to see about finding it online. it’s so good. they also have a balsamic mustard we picked up.

i had my pre workout supps.. arginine + spark.

NewImage

then headed to GPP for this fun workout!

NewImage

NewImage

i thought about doing some cardio, too, but i was exhausted from the early morning, so i just headed home. i made shepherd’s pie for dinner.

NewImage

i had a big serving of it and then downed the final 32 oz of my daily gallon. love making this for dinner because we have lots of leftovers!

then i replied to emails while watching the shield with marshall. we finished season 3 and just started season 4.. we are such addicts! it’s nice that it’s on netflix so we don’t have to wait a year between seasons ;)

i will most likely have a protein cake before bed.. i simply mix a scoop of vanilla protein powder with an egg white, 1 TB applesauce, 1 TB cocoa powder 1/4 tsp baking powder, and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract in a mug sprayed with cooking spray. microwave for 90 seconds and it’s done! i like to mix half a serving of plant fusion and half a serving of hemp force for my protein powder.. the combo makes the cake super M-word.

mmmkay.. that’s it! super speedy post for a super busy day. be back tomorrow with more ramblings!

Qs~

Today I think the best thing I ate was these cauliflower cheesey bites from blogilates. DELISH. I enjoy replacing things with cauliflower now. :)

I love that you talk about Trader Joe’s stuff. Obsessed! That farmer’s market mustard looks good. TJ’s sells a mustard 4-pack for the holidays with fancy flavors. Probably not as good as the stuff you bought but still amazing.

p.s. Thanks for not using the M-word.

My work out today was a 45 min walk with my mom and aunt it was about 3.2ish miles total. It was gorgeous out and the moon looked amazing.

Favorite thing I ate was definitely not my advocare fiber drink but probably my celery and peanut butter… they were just what I wanted

How do you like the watermelon spark??? I really enjoy the fruit punch spark but find myself not completely in love with the mandarin orange.. Watermelon sounds fantastic

Janetha October 8, 2013 at 8:06 am

I don’t love the orange, either. Watermelon is my fave. Tastes like a jolly rancher :)

Jan @ Sprouts n Squats October 7, 2013 at 11:07 pm

Best thing I ate today was a flaxseed mug cake for breakfast it was delicious and I had it with coconut yoghurt :)

Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine October 7, 2013 at 11:09 pm

Today I went to my favorite Group Power class, awesome as usual!

Lisa October 7, 2013 at 11:27 pm

Oh man, your Monday’s sound crazy! At least it’s all over with now.
And keeps the day busy. I guess it’s better than those slow days at work!
All your eats look awesome for the day.
The best thing I ate was probably this roasted vegetable soup I made for Dinner. It was just amazing.

The lunch salad looks delicious and you have me thinking i should probably be eating more mustard. we did a barbell complex at cf today which I absolutely hated, but I guess that means I needed to work on it, so I’m glad I went! Now that it’s over. We had taco salads for the millionth time tonight, but they’re the best!

Erica October 8, 2013 at 12:57 am

Ow! Totally buying that TJs grain salad. How yummy. Tjs has the best products. The shepards pie looks so darn good. Workouts on Monday- taught Attack and Step. Best thing I ate Monday? I made a great Italian veggie dish

Linz @ Itz Linz October 8, 2013 at 4:41 am

i ate a baked potato for dinner and it was faaaaantastic! :)

Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut October 8, 2013 at 4:54 am

That shepard’s pie looks delish!

The best thing I had yesterday was probably a breakfast burrito made at work! Refried beans, cheese, salsa and eggs!

betty (the sweaty betty) October 8, 2013 at 6:00 am

i made a ‘clean’ stroganoff for dinner last night and really enjoyed it. I also took scout for a walk since I’ve been feeling a cold coming on and I don’t have time for that, so i’m trying to get my rest. love Netflix! i’d rather watch everything together than wait every week!

purelytwins October 8, 2013 at 7:30 am

love watching shows on netflix, I will have to check out the shield

I do not workout yesterday, but got up this morning and did some pushups and kettlebell swings. I am traveling now so hard to get a workout in ;)

I adore shepherd’s pie! I haven’t made it in ages, so thanks for the inspiration!
I took a 20-20-20 gym class yesterday – basically, lots of weights and plyo moves!

Rachel M. October 8, 2013 at 9:03 am

Monday I went a kick boxing class. I found a local martial arts gym recently and this was my third class. Even though it really kicks my butt, I love it!

This past weekend I marinated tofu in an homemade Asian sesame dressing which I mixed with wild rice. I the leftovers for lunch and it was delicious!

Stephanie @ My Freckled Life October 8, 2013 at 9:37 am

Totally appreciate you not using the M-word. Blech!! That shephards pie looks amazing though – sweet potatoes instead of regular white ones are such a great addition!

Annette@FitnessPerks October 8, 2013 at 9:45 am

Thanks for the recipe for the mug cake–in yesterdays comments & today! :) I think those are so fun to make.

Looks like you had a super busy day. And mmmmm to good mustard!!

Livi October 8, 2013 at 9:54 am

I only fit in a quick 45 min of cardio yesterday because I have a big test tomorrow- need to get some strength in today!

Marisa October 8, 2013 at 10:00 am

I did a Ballet Physique DVD Monday morning. The best thing I ate was a bowl of potato chowder with mini saltines.
That grain salad looks amazing! I have a long list of TJ’s stuff to buy next time I can make it to one.

Nicole V. October 8, 2013 at 11:15 am

My workout yesterday was 3.5 miles on the treadmill. Felt good to GO to the gym, especially after I had almost talked myself out of it.

Best thing I ate yesterday: Special K with Red Berries cereal. Kinda sad….

Maren October 8, 2013 at 12:25 pm

hahaha super m-word. Hate that word! I ended up having to sub for someone last night so I taught tabata! It was fun teaching it to a different group than my “regulars”. Then I came home and had 1/2 acorn squash topped with taco turkey meat, onions and salsa! And Nate had super cheesy stuffed peppers. Jealous.

:) I miss sugar.

Shari October 8, 2013 at 12:45 pm

I found the mustard online http://www.wilsonswicked.com.

Katy O October 8, 2013 at 1:37 pm

Mmm the grain salad looks yummy! I don’t have a TJ’s near me… What is in it? I want to recreate. It looks like cucumbers, chickpeas, red peppers, quinoa.

Jessie October 8, 2013 at 9:09 pm

Yum! I need to try that protein cake. :)

julie October 9, 2013 at 7:10 pm

monday sounds & looks delicious! I would have the same face as Penny & Randy when looking at that mustard jar!!
