Make It Stop

Getting back to the grind after a late night of football and intense snackage is not easy…

My favorite Monday morning workout had to be postponed, and saying that I woke up feeling a bit sluggish would definitely be an understatement…

So I’m sure you can imagine that I was more than ready to get back on the healthy bandwagon.

Starting with breakfastthe most important meal of the day!

I packed up a vanilla Chobani, a banana, and some Kashi Go Lean Crisp cereal to make a nice little yogurt mess.

Which was definitely enjoyed with some much-welcomed coffee. Winking smile

Breakfast actually held me over quite well today, which I’m sure had something to do with the fact that my tummy was probably still full of cookie dough dip. Embarrassed smile But by the time lunch rolled around, I was ready to dig in!

I made a turkey sandwich on an Arnold’s Sandwich Thin Naturals 100% Whole Wheat Flax & Fiber, complete with half a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese, lettuce, tomato, and a drizzle of honey mustard.

You probably notice that I don’t eat a whole lot of sandwiches for lunch. No reason in particular, except for the fact that I’m usually just not craving them. But this one was yumm-o! Smile

On the side I had some baby carrots + grape tomatoes

and a pear, which I actually saved for my 3:00 hunger cravings. Smile

Workout

I got home from work and had no idea what I was in the mood to do for my workout. Yesterday, I tried out the Jillian Michael’s 6 Week Six-Pack Abs workout from Exercise on Demand and loved it! It was pretty intense, and I’m really looking forward to doing it again tomorrow. I think I’m going to try incorporating it 3x a week for the 6 weeks and see what happens… Surprised smile

So since I didn’t want to do that on back-to-back days, I ended up going with my Insane Incline Run workout. Always a kick in the arrrrrss. Winking smile

Dinner

Jay and I decided to keep things simple tonight.

With the recommendation of Teri over Twitter this afternoon, I baked up a couple chicken breasts with some salt & pepper, lemon juice, honey, and fresh garlic. It was beyond easy to do, I didn’t measure anything, and was totally tasty to boot! Thanks, Teri! Smile

On the side we had some brown rice,

and some of the spiciest roasted zucchini I have ever had.

I’m not kidding. I’m a total wimp…Jay tends to really enjoy seasoning with pepper, which is not a favorite of mine. I think he got a little heavy-handed on me today…that stinker!

It was so tasty, yet so spicy, I just wanted to yell “Make it STOP!” I still scarfed down every last bite…I just had to drink a few extra gulps of water. Winking smile

Since I enjoyed my fair share of sweets last night, I actually refrained from having any all day today. But look what happened to be on my counter when I arrived home this afternoon…

Oh lawdy. Disappointed smile

My mother-in-law was out yesterday and picked up a couple of these Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes from the Charlton Tavern which is located just a quick drive away from where Jay and I live, in Ballston Lake.

These babies are jumbo, so I think I’m going to just eat half…

Well, hey, at least I’ll try. Winking smile

Question for the Evening:

What’s your favorite cupcake flavor combo?
