Conspiring for health...

Monday Recap:

8:30am:  Breakfast- Dark Chocolate Chunk KIND bar

Morning Workout:  Advanced Pilates
And we made it to class ON TIME!  Miracle of miracles, especially for a 9:30 classJ  I guess it helped then that Katie was up before 6:30amJ

11:00am:  Snack- Date Cinnamon Smoothie
Got done class and realized I was STARRRRVVVIIINNNGGGG.  And after traversing 2 parking lots while lugging Katie in "Pilates exhausted" arms and buckling her into the car seat did we realize she had left her beloved CAT in the day care and we had to walk allllllllllllllllllll the way back into the gym and then alllllll the way back to the carJ  I actually was so hungry by that point that I toyed with going to the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru JUST to get some semblance of a snack...only to be met with the drive-thru entrance covered in orange cones.  It was as if the gods had conspired with me to JUST GO HOMEJ  At least this smoothie came together as quickly as a trip through a drive-thruJ
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Cinnamon
  • 2 dates
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 3-4 pieces of ice
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD!   Filled 'the tank' right back upJ  I actually can't wait to have another one of these todayJ

1:30pm:  Lunch- 2 slices Federici's pizza & their famous salad
Met up with a friend & her little cutie for lunch...but the main star of the afternoon was letting the two of them just ROAM FREE at the park and burn off some energy...while we burned off the pizzaJ

And, of course, awwwww at the cutenessJ

 6:00pm:  Dinner- "Mexican Chicken" over spinach
I was amazed that after eating a 'heavier lunch,' I was still pretty REALLY HUNGRY by the time dinner rolled around.  Thankfully, it was a quick grill of the flattened chicken breast and then topped with:
  • Salsa
  • 2 sliced diced avocado
  • Reduced fat Mexican cheese
Pop in the toaster oven until the cheese melts and serve over spinach.  Couldn't be easier or 'leaner'...esp after garlic pizzaJ

Evening Workout:  Beginner's Power Yoga

8:00pm:  Dessert- 2 Ritz S'mores 
I had been SOEXCITED to try this sweet & salty variation since I spied it on Pinterest...and since I was DYING for some chocolate last night, I knew the time had come to give 'em a whirl.  I actually think I walked straight from the car from the gym into the kitchen to make themJ

4 Ritz, 1 mini Hershey bar and a flambe'd marshmallow... 

...and VOILA! 
To be quite honest, I don't even think I can give you a fair assessment since I inhaled them so fast that I barely remember them as I'm sitting here typing thisJ  Maybe next time I'll enjoy them slowly enough that an analysis can be conductedJ Hahahahahaha

Well, the thermometer is supposed to make an incline in Jersey today which means I'm breaking out all of Katie's summer clothes...which are BEYOND adorable (as usual)  Why can't adults have a wardrobe of bold colors and light cotton dresses for all the warmer months ahead too??J  


Have a great Tuesday!
