Bright & sunny....

Tuesday Recap:

Workout:  2 sets of Arms & legs with 4 pounds

Breakfast:  Berry Chia Seed Pudding + 2 tablespoons toasted walnuts
Oh man, this was sooooooooooo good!  A mix of mashed strawberries (blueberries for Scott), coconut water, unsweetened coconut and a bit of agave and this just SCREAMED "sunny weather breakfast" and tasted soooo fresh.  I plan on making this for breakfast all summer long...ya know, when I can keep my eyes open with a newborn & a toddler, that isJ

Lunch:  Kale Chips with Guacamole 
Another winner from the 'vegan' plan, I couldn't argue with this excuse to have 2 of ma favs and call it lunch?  OKJ
Just realized this morning I was also supposed to have a piece of fruit here too!  That probably would have helped since I was a little hungry by the time we got to snack...

Snack:  1/4 cup hummus + 1 cup of carrots 
Artichoke Spinach variety for her (which I LOVEEED!  I must only like 'briny' hummus since olive is the only other flavor I really dig) & garlic for him and mini herJ  I'm usually not a crazy fan of those bagged baby carrots, but couldn't really argue with 3/$5.00 at the grocery store this weekendJ

Dinner:  Turkey Chili (TIU nutrition program) with 1/4 sliced avocado
I seriously thought this was going to be some paltry serving of chili, but once we divided it into our portions, it was MORE than filling (esp. with that little extra help from the avocado).  Bonus was the recipe made with a pound of turkey was enough for dinner for Scott & I, plus 2 servings for him for the weekend (while I'm off to yoga schoolJ)  Food prep seems even MORE worth is when you get multiple meals outta the dealJ
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can rinsed & drained kidney beans
  • 1 large diced onion
  • 2 cups diced bell peppers (I used red & yellow)
  • Chili, cumin, black pepper, a little salt (use your tastes)
  • 1 large can of crushed tomatoes
Cook up the ground turkey in an olive oil-spritzed pan.  Add in the onions & peppers and cook for about 5-10 minutes.  Add the crushed tomato, beans and spices and bring to boil.  Allow to simmer on low heat until dinnertime.

Nothin fancy...pretty basic.  I was keeping an eye more on the servings size and again: I was pleasantly surprised!

So yep, that wraps up Day 2 of the Bikini Series.  I was a little more hungry in the morning/afternoon (that fruit with lunch sooooo would have helped!), but had I known how filling the rest of the day was going to be, I probably woulda just bumped up my snacks and then wouldn't have had to worry about it at all.  Again:  Lots of delicious food/no junk, and it feels FAB!  Woke up feeling fantastic this morning and that was only after 2 days.  VERY happy about that.

Well, that and the fact that the sun is shining this morning and it's suppose to tap out at 70 today.  THIS is making me crazy happy lately.  Hey...whatever gets ya outta bed with a little extra spring, right??

Have a good Wednesday, everyone!
