WIAW

1 Feb

Hi guys! I actually remembered to take part in WIAW this week. That’s saying a lot as my brain is pretty mushy with all the school work I’ve been having to tackle lately. So let’s get to the goods! 🙂

Keurig Flavor of the Day: Donut House Chocolate Glazed Donut.

Do I even need to say any more? How could you possibly lose with a name like that? This is a nice light flavored roast and is great with a splash of milk and some sweetener. I am glad I now have a full box to enjoy. It’s dessert in a mug!

Vixi Bar, peanut butter and jelly flavor. I really like these bars! Tasty, all natural, and a good amount of protein to keep me going through the afternoon. It was more peanut butter than jelly but definitely good nonetheless.

classic lunch break consisting of a salad and sandwich combo: salsa, balsamic, olive salad and a turkey, cheese, mustard, spinach sandwich. Followed later on by…

Smoothie of the Day: Cran-Strawberry Protein Smoothie~ 1/2 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup frozen cranberries, 1/2 serving vanilla protein powder, 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1 cup almond milk, ice.

Monster Meatloaf….

I’ve seen many people trying out this recipe and I couldn’t resist to try it out as well. It did not disappoint! And I love that fact that it makes a lot, so I have plenty to eat off of throughout the week. Perfect for my busy schedule!

zucchini bars for the win!

I LOVE this recipe! I use Trutein’s cinnabon protein powder in them and add in some almond milk and cinnamon and they taste like a zucchini cinnamon roll. I should frost the top…hmmmm.

the obligatory night time favorite: Sludge Bowl ❤ This one had chocolate casein protein, blended cottage cheese, almond milk, carob powder, and Barney Butter almond butter

Just a few eats! And for my workout today, I followed a workout by my favorite new-momma, Fitnessista! I did the Winter Shape Up, Week Three and really liked it! It was based on supersets which are such an effective way to switch things up with strength training. This workout didn’t take very long either, so I could easily fit it in first thing in the morning before my classes. There is nothing like knocking out a good workout before the sun even comes up. I love starting my day off with that little bit of ME time. It paves the way for a positive, productive day.

Even though my schedule is very busy right now, I know that making time for exercise is still a top priority. It is my stress relief and helps me to *deal* with things so much better. Something about those endorphins!

Also, don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a chance to to participate in February’s Home Workout Challenge!

And with that, it’s time to go relax for a bit. 🙂
