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.
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
