Two More Days

Hi there! Two more days left at my full time job. Holy crap, that’s as crazy as it sounds 😀

Knowing that makes today just a smidge easier. You see, yesterday ended with a 9:00 p.m. sand volleyball game on the other side of town. Did I mention it’s currently 5:30 a.m. and I have a 6:00 a.m. client before work? Two more days. Two more days.

But let’s rewind back to what yesterday started with.

After a 45 minute Insanity workout with the husband, breakfast was NEEDED.


A breakfast cookie! I haven’t had one of these babies in a while. This one in particular had oats, 1/2 a banana, 1 T. peanut butter, 1/8 c. almond milk, maca, Jay Robb protein powder, cocao nibs, and cranberries.


Washed it down with a no fuss smoothie involving half a frozen banana, frozen blueberries, water, spinach, and a 1/2 t. xantham gum. It was the perfect breakfast to fuel a hard work out. Note: Insanity makes you SWEAT. On my side of the floor, it looked like a rain cloud passed through. Shane’s side looked more like a monsoon, but that’s neither here nor there 😉

Then I was off to work for a few hours. My trainee is pretty much trained. I don’t think my managers will miss my mad planning skillz with him around 😉 Not sure what we’ll do these LAST TWO DAYS (!!) but I’m sure it’ll be all good.

For lunch, Shane and I went to Chipotle, and I ordered the veggie burrito bol:



Nomtastic as always.


Around 3, I had an unpictured snack of plain greek yogurt + homemade granola. And then around 5, I trained a client.

Once home, I walked Niko, cleaned up, and got started on dinner.

For the main course, I sauteed some Quorn chick’n strips + portabello mushroom slivers:


And topped a spinach and bell pepper salad with it.

I’m slowly but surely making my way through my NuNaturals stash. I really do love this Stevia. Would you guys want to do a giveaway on this stuff? There’s enough readers that like stevia on the blog for it, right?

For the other main course:


Peanut butter fries!


can you really consider this deliciousness a side? I used a dipping sauce of mustard + honey + more PB. It was good, but the fries really didn’t need the sauce.


While this meal was digesting, I caught up on Glee. ‘Twas a good one. Neil Patrick Harris is pretty awesome.

And then when I felt like I should get ready and go to bed, I left for my volleyball game.

Who schedules games at 9:00 at night?! Yeah…definitely going to need that second cuppa joe today, m’friends.

I’ve already made breakfast, but I’m planning on eating it at work after my training session:


Nothing new here, just some Overnight Oats in a tupperware container. Still yumtopia, though :D           

Well I’ve got a full day up in RAN land, but will try to post tonight or tomorrow:


-work all day




hehe. Two more days 😉


Do you have a countdown going on right now? I love having things to look forward to! So even if there’s nothing huge coming up, I still like to “countdown” until something. So, what’s your countdown?

  1. MAJOR countdown going on right now…I’ve been living in China for 10 months and I’m going home in 4 weeks and 3 days. I’ve already planned my first 6 meals….is that crazy? =)

  2. I’m doing a nice backwards countdown…this semester is over, and my summer, night class doesn’t begin until June 7. I’ve promised (myself) to undertake a major house cleaning on these free days.

  3. I too enjoy counting down, it makes the time go quicker. I’m currently counting down to my first half-marathon, it is in 10 days! I can’t believe it’s almost here, I’m just ready to do it already.

  4. Ahh i wana do insanity sooo bad!!!! I am counting down until my ONLINE CLASS is over! haha its getting so annoying!

  5. I would LOVE to win some NuNaturals stevia!

    My current countdown is until my husband gets home from his business trip tomorrow night. I’ve been solo parenting and it’s exhausting. 🙂

  6. I don’t have a formal countdown but I am excited and think about how I only have two weeks until my first ultrasound. That first one always makes things seem better and brings a peace of mind.

    I think its nuts to schedule a game at 9pm on a weeknight too!

  7. definitely enough stevia lovers for a giveaway!!
