Wednesday Recap:

8:00am:  Coffee with creamer

9:30am:  Breakfast- Protein pancake with peanut butter & maple

10:30-11:45am:  Power Yoga
And it was a GOOD THING I had a hearty breakfast cause this class was SOOOOOO TOUGH!!!  Lots of planks, low planks, push-ups and just a bevy of power moves.  Felt TOTALLY toned after this one...if not totally BEAT!

1:30pm:  Lunch- Salad with cheese, trail mix, olive oil & sea salt

3:30pm:  Snack- Laughing Cow cheese

5:00pm:  Dinner- Roasted butternut Squash & Apple soup & a slice of wheat toast with butter

This couldn't have been easier!  First, I chopped up a butternut squash, apple & onion, coated them with olive oil & salt and let them roast at 400 for about 30 minutes.  Truth be told, I wished I had left them in for about an hour to get really toasty, but time was of the essence and I had to press onJ

Next, I added the squash/apples to a pot along with:
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon & nutmeg
  • 5-6 torn sage leaves
Then I hit it all with the immersion and allowed it to come to boil and then a simmer for a few minutes.

Couldn't have been easier for a FALL-Y & cozy soup!  The maple brought out the sweetness of the apples with the squash brought out the savoriness of the butternut squash and onion.
The only thing that was missing was a little garlic.  Next time I'll toss a bulb of garlic on there to roast along with the rest of the veggies.  I think it would have given it that extra touchJ

5:30pm- Body Jam class
Annnddd here's where hell on done broke loose as I was in the middle of dancing away when I felt a sharp pull in my hip.  I kept tryin to dance it out before I decided I should probably stop for the night....which led to a 'code blue' announced on the intercom and being escorted out of the class by the trainers.  Ei yi yi!!!!!  ONLY ME!  Guess I have to cool it off in the workout department for the next few days.

I'm sure this had NOTHING to do with itJ

Have a great Thursday!J
