Hey there! Happy Friday 😀
Thanks for all the non-pb breakfast ideas! Sounds like I need to go get some eggs! I used my last one in a batch of waffles the other day 😉
Wanna know something funny about Niko?
Whenever Shane or I sit down to eat, she knows it’s meal time. As soon as the form hits our mouth, she walks over to our bowl and starts chowin’ down too.
The little weirdo can never just eat at her bowl, though. Oh no. She has to bring it over to a rug and only then will she begin to actually eat it.
And sometimes, she’ll actually bring the food pebbles over to whoever’s eating and set it on our feet.
I never claimed she was a normal dog. 😉
Pet owners: do your pets have any weird/quirky eating habits?
This morning I had to wake up super early for an early morning client. Before leaving the house, I had my favorite “light breakfast”
A banana, chopped, topped with a little drizzle on honey and then about a tbsp of raw wheat germ.
Perfect amount of carbs, fat, and protein to getcha goin’.
Burn Baby, Burn: Legs and Back Circuit Workout
I had to have a little something on my stomach, because after training my client, I trained myself! I completed a 45 minute circuit workout that focuses on legs and back. It was killa! I’d love to share!
Complete the workout circuit-style, going from one exercise to the next. Complete the circuit three times. Before trying this workout or beginning any workout program, please consult with your doctor first.

Afterward, I had a bit more time, so I completed about 25 minutes on the elliptical before peacing out to grab some breakfast before my next client coming up.
A cherry-vanilla protein smoothie was just what I needed!
1 frozen banana, 10 frozen cherries, 1 c. almond milk, 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, 1 scoop vanilla pp, 2 handfuls of spinach, 1 tbsp flaxmeal
Topped with some brown rice crispies (newest obsession, btw!!!) and some granola.
Then I decided some healthy fats were also in order.
Gotta go train the next client! Have a delightful Friday, all!!
