Natural Light

28 May


I rocked the natural light for my breakfast photo shoot this morning:



Quite a face rocking breakfast, I might add.

Much better photos, no?

This baby contained:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 smashed banana
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • cinnamon
  • mesquite
  • vanilla
  • splash of almond milk

Topped with a tablespoon of peanut butter and a dark chocolate chip…since it’s Friday and all… 😉 It was the perfect treat to get me ready for the weekend!

After breakfast was savored (read: devoured in 5 seconds flat) Jaci decided that it was time for a walk:


See her pointing to my shoes? What a smart little pup she is. I decided to take it easy workout-wise this morning since yesterday’s workout pretty much left my body like Jell-O.

Per Fitnessista’s Summer Shape Up Plan, it was Leg Day. That workout does NOT mess around. But I loved every sweaty second though and felt like a million bucks afterwards.

My body is still feelin’ it this morning but our walk was glorious and it was beautiful and refreshing outside. Good call, Jaci. Just what I needed to loosen things up.

Now I’m about to Green Monster it up with current favorite mix:


Like my new Walmart bottle?

  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 cup Sams Club frozen triple berry blend (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • ICE!

I’ve decided to up my Green Monster intake and get my Project Glow on again. Between Summer and my trip to Mexico coming up, I want to be feeling and looking my best. So GM’s and fresh juices are now the name of the game. Anyone care to join?

Plans for today:

  1. Watch latest episode of Glee
  2. make new workout playlist
  3. work at bank 1-6
  4. 6:05 = FREEDOM!!!!!!!

Question of the Day: Current Favorite Workout Song? Current favorite anything song?

Have a great day!

    Yesterday I decided to start green smoothying it up so I’m with you on the Project Glow.

    My favorite workout song right now is the Move Shake Drop remix by DJ Laz. Whenever I feel my energy flagging I turn that song on and I’m back in the game!

    I have been adoring the lighting that mother nature has been providing for some optimum foodie pics 🙂 Your breakfast is just beautiful and I love that plate! For some reason it reminds me of the coral in spongebob squarepants. I think I’m crazy.
