Rump Shaking

3 Mar

Hey lovely girls! (and guys!) 

Well, I am very happy to say that I made it through the brutal, stressful second trimester of the school year. (!!!!) It was a tough one that wore on me mentally and physically…but I am done and I finished out with straight A’s!! Thats what a ton of hard work will get ya. I am proud of myself but so completely happy that it is behind me now. The new trimester started this Monday and it has been glorious. My classes are MUCHO easier and much more enjoyable. I am so excited to take it easy and finish the year out happily and STRESS FREE!

So it’s been a while since I’ve done a full post of the my day’s shenanigans and eats. Let take a look shall we?

Alarm clock goes off at precisely 6:00 a.m. Once I get my booty out of bed, I geared up for some ab work. 15 minutes of it to wake me up and get me going. I will have to look up the names of the moves I did, because really, I couldn’t tell ya. Stay tuned on that. 😉



hot oats made with: 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, 1/4 cup egg sub, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tsp maca, 1/2 sliced naner, 1 tbsp natural pb. Glorious.

Although for many school mornings, I have been making this the night before for on-the-go breakfasts:


April’s overnight muslei!!! Or as I like to call them…dough bowls.


yes I am classy and eat it out of tubberware. It’s the cool thing to do, trust me.

I dubbed them dough bowls because they are so thick, and creamy due to the greek yogurt and so doughy because of the oats. Fabulousness in a bowl, I tell you.

I make them with:

  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup uncooked oats
  • 1 tsp chia seeds

Then depending on what I am in the mood for,  I will add blueberries, banana slices, nut butters, cinnamon, stevia, maca, dark chocolate cocoa powder or amazing grass powder. The top picture is just a plain bowl and the bottom picture has 1/2 cup blueberries + 1 tbsp cocoa powder + 1 scoop chocolate Amazing Meal. Tonight I’m putting together a chocolate covered strawberry dough bowl. Definitely going to be blog-worthy.

So yummmmmy!

Today’s lunch plate:


Rudi’s organic 14 grain bread (found this loaf on the clearance rack for 99 cents…score) with sprouts, spinach, Sabra’s hummus, and a hunk of cheese. plus more hummus and crackers and veggies.  I also ate an orange.

Lately I have been obsessed with oranges. They are so refreshing! Mmmm.

For snack, I made some fabulous chia puddin’


I got this idea from Fitnessista. I simply combined 2 tbsp chia seeds, 1/4 cup greek yogurt, 1 scoop protein powder, and a dash of almond milk. I stirred and let it sit for about 10 ten minutes. Then I devoured it in .2 seconds flat. It was that good. So thick!

A little while later, I headed to ZUMBA for some rump shaking. Gina would be so proud. 😉 It was glorious and I felt like a million bucks afterwards. To treat myself, I came home and whipped up a wonderful, NEW dinner…thanks again to Fitnessista. Sheesh, stalker much?


Mung bean pasta!


20 grams of protein!!! Definitely a keeper.


tossed with a simple mixture of nooch, sea salt, and fresh cracked pepper.

Along with some brussels:


I roasted these babies at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. They were tossed in 1/2 TBSP of coconut oil and garlic salt.

It was a pretty lip smackin’ good dinner.


But of course I had room for little somethin’ somethin’ after that. April’s lowcarb sweet bread plus reduced fat strawberry cream cheese. Usually I’m all about slathering these things (or anything, for that matter) in nut butter, but the cream cheese was a nice change.

Now I’m just hanging with the family, watching Biggest Loser. I am so glad it is back on now that the Olympics are over. I missed it! I love me some Bob and Jillian.

So I’ll leave you with a question of the day…because I need some help.

What is your favorite protein powder?

I’m getting low and it’s time to shake things up and try something new! Feel free to tell more than one favorite!! Thanks!

Catch ya later!

    I don’t have a favorite protein powder but I REALLY want to try the Vega brand. The bars are delish (although not for everyone) and I’m thinking about picking up some of the powder.

    20g of protein in those noodles?! I want some!
