Workout: 2 rounds arms & squats with 8 pounds
Breakfast: Mango Avocado Smoothie
I cut the avocado to half this time around and I LOVEEED the flavor. It wasn't as creamy as the original version, but I loved the combo flavor of mango + mint. SOOO GOOD!
Snack: Luna Bar
Lunch: "Breakfast Tacos"
TOO GOODJ In full disclosure-I just had these AGAIN for breakfastJ CAN'T STOP!
Snack: Granola bar
Not crazy over having granola bars for BOTH snacks, but I was craving chocolate yesterday afternoon and this was as close to a healthy dose of it as I could find in my house at the momentJ
Dinner: Tone it up Turmeric "Skewers" + couscous + spinach
Scott & I are LOVING these quick 'stir-fry' meals cause they are not only healthy, but SUPER quick. TIU recommended the turmeric, soy sauce, green onion marinated chicken as skewers, but we instead tossed it in a pot with a diced onion, some cooked couscous & spinach and let it all cook together about 10 minutes. A uniquely flavored + healthy meal in mere moments = A-OK with us!
ps-I've been feeling A LOT better since adding healthy carbs into my dinners. I was surprised not having them past 3pm had such an affect on me since I certainly didn't cut them out the rest of the day (and, in fact, was eating MORE of them throughout the day than usual). But after a week & a half or so of cutting back, I was barely able to hold my head up after lunch. So (healthy) CARBS with DINNER again it is! I may try again IN A FEW MONTHS (since cutting them at night apparently puts your body in fat-burning mode), but for this moment, a few pounds I could potentially loose from those carbs are SOOOOOOOO not worth being even MORE exhausted thought out the day, So yeah...that was my little carb updateJ
ANYWAY! I should have PLENTY of my fill of carbs after THIS weekend since it's Memorial Day! Crazy! Hope you guys enjoy every moment!J
