There’s a Feast in My Oven!

What’s up lovelies? I’m so ecstatic so many of you are on board with the Complaint Free February Challenge!! 😀 I have to admit, I slipped up several times today. But I suppose day 1 is destined to be the hardest, right? How did you guys do? Did you make it through the day? Decrease the number of complaints in your typical day?

 

I woke up this morning and had the best. breakfast. ever. If you read Meals and Moves (and if you don’t, ya should) you have probably seen Janetha’s yoatgurt as of lately.

Yoatgurt: Half Greek yogurt, half hot oatmeal, half fully amazing.

 

Like this!

I know it looks weird, but don’t knock it ‘til you try it, folks 🙂 For my yoatgurt, I mixed a 1/2 c. of plain Oikos w/ stevia and cinnamon, and placed in aside a 1/3 c. of oatmeal w/ stevia, flaxmeal, and a banana cooked in. Divided the two with some Trader Joe’s Raw almond butter.

But the two are not meant to be divided.

After snappin’ a picture, I mixed it all together, devoured, and moaned in foodie delight. No really, it’s that good. Janetha, thank you for introducing this to the blog world! It’s destined to be a cult breakfast soon.

Anyway…went to work and had a super productive day! Got a crap ton of work done, and managed to chat with coworkers a good amount of the day, too. Day well done:)

Paused around 11:30 for some lunch:

In the tinfoil ugliness was a wrap containing spinach, romaine, laughing cow wedge, tomatoes, black beans. Scrumptious! Aside were some bbq Popchips (which are phenom!!) and a couple Almond Butter cookies. Nom.

Had a couple meetings after lunch and it was already time to leave! Gotta love days like that. Oh, and the best part? Tomorrow’s Friday!! 😀

Drove straight to the gym from work where I did an easy pace 3.5 mile run. Although there are 5 treadmills broken at the gym, I was able to do one mile on one of the older treadmills, and then finish the last 2.5 on my faaavorite treadmill! Holler for finding a work around 😀 (almost complained there, hehe.) After running, I did about 30 minutes of a super intense leg workout. I already know, my legs are going to be jello when I wake up!

           

To try to prevent soreness and promote muscle recovery, I downed an Amazing Meal + Coconut Milk protein shake when I got back home:

Slurp!

Played with the animals for a while and got started on dinner. Apparently it was oven night.

Between the hubski and I the following items were cooking in the oven…all at the same time (ha – oops!)

-broccoli

-cauliflower

-kale

-Cod

-Sweet potatoes

An oven feast!

My takings of the oven feast:

So in love with kale chips right now. I really hope I don’t burn myself out on them like I do so many other foods.

Delish!

And a glass o’ red wine later and that brings us to now.

Now I‘m about to go play with the pupster a little more, since I wasn’t able to walk her at all today. I’ll probably play a game of chase around the couch until we’re dizzy in order to wear her out before bed. Gotta do whatcha gotta do…

Then I’m going to dive back into this read:

I received this book and Brendan’s second book – Thrive Fitness from Sequel Naturals the other day, and I’m pretty amped to learn a little more 😀 And yeah, I’m still reading Lovely Bones, as well, but I’m one of those people who always has 2-3 books going at the same time.

 

Have a lovely rest of your night, all, and HAPPY FRIDAY!! 😀 Yay!

 

What are your plans for this weekend? Let’s see…I’ve got a busy one! I’m going to see Dear John tomorrow with some girlfriends (bust out the Kleenex!!) and Saturday my half marathon training plan officially starts (yay!) and got a 2 year old’s birthday party to go to, and then it’s Super BOWL!

What are your plans for Super BOWL (said like BOW-L!) this Sunday?? I believe we are having a few friends over to the house for some food and brewski’s. Since we have to work the next day, it probably won’t get too wild, though. Super Bowl Sunday should probably be on a Saturday, don’tcha think?! 😉

  4. in preparation for the Superbowl party the boyf and I are attending, I am going to make a double batch of hummus, bring a platter of crudités and some yummy baked tortilla chips!
    We are going to a friends house, and Zak eats so much that we need to come prepared, lol. Plus these items will give us a healthy edge over the cheesy, meaty snacks that will likely be prevalent.
    The yoatgurt looks great – what is the temperature like once the two are mixed together? I gotta try that out!

  5. “kale chips right now. I really hope I don’t burn myself out on them like I do so many other foods.”
    I mildly burnt myself out on them for about a month but im back at it after a 2 mo gorge fest LOL

  6. Hmmm, woke up to freezing rain with the promise of 2-4 inches of whatever. February is no complaint month, right? Well, at least it’s not supposed to be 5-10 inches of yuk, and my electricity is still on:-)
    No super bowl plans, but we will watch and cheer for the Saints.

  7. I could never read more than one book at a time. I would get too confused! LOL
