So its Monday! I’m up and at’em and clocked myself 4 hours of work already! 4 hours for Municipal Solutions ..and 1 additional hour for the YMCA.
I’ve been enjoying my morning meal everyday so far with a Chocolate Protein Raspberry Smoothie. I top it with 1/4 cup Ezekiel Cereal and a tbsp of PB2.
For those of y ou who havent heard of PB2, i’ll have to enlighten you tonight.
I also have been eating my Popeye’s Pancakes very frequently. They are really good to have on the go… I am always going!
Today I got Nancy on a quick leg conditioning circuit before I got here to the school to continue operation textbook. Here’s what it looked like :
| 250 Stairs Superset with 30 crunches
|30 Bridges Superset with 15/leg kickbacks
|50 Plank ins and outs
|2 studio length sumo squats
So here we are.
Last week was awesome. I got to catch up on my steak eating and had 3 oz each day. I also devoured 2 full Tbone steaks on Saturday afternoon at my Nan’s house. Heck yeah 2 inches thick! Who said figure girls only eat tilapia and asparagus?!
Well, we do eat a lot of Tilapia … I do! Because this is how it looks:
This is blackened tilapia with guacamole over quinoa and spinach.
You can make this in no time! it took me about 10 minutes to prep it all but in total. I got this pic from Tuesday Tomorrow. Mine was just on a red plate instead of green. I made 1 serving for myself. I like it all fresh and good to go.. Except Quinoa, I like having it cooked and on hand.
Here’s how I made it:
1 cup uncooked, dry quinoa
1.5 cups cold water
Presoak your quinoa, and drain it in a mesh strainer before cooking. Add your quinoa to your pot and bring to a boil. Cook covered for 15 minutes. Keep the pot covered and remove from heat for an additional 5 minutes and then fluff with a fork. Add salt or pepper to taste.
Guacamole, 2 servings:
2 tsp lime juice
chopped cilantro to taste
1 tsp each cumin, chilli powder and crushed red pepper flakes
chopped tomato optional
salt and pepper to taste
Mix’er all up and voila!
1-2 fillets per serving, thawed.
coat in paprika, crushed red pepper, cumin, chilli powder, onion powder and garlic powder. About 1/4 tsp of each.
Drop into a HOT PAN – **Pan must be past medium (on about lvl 7) and HOT! If its cold, the fish won’t “fry” and will simply fall apart in the pan – no good! Fry for about 4-6 minutes per side!
Guacamole is probably the best thing in the world. Not to mention on top of fish. If you have any objections, please speak now. Because I will eat it for you.
Anyways enough of my threats. This weekend we did a lot of fun stuff. You saw my Saturday at Nan and Uncle Tim’s place, and Sunday was awesome as well. I woke up and went to the gym with Frank. For those of you wondering who he is, its my sister Katie. She likes to call herself Frank
for reasons we choose not to ask because it sticks. She did pretty good, she made it all the way through LEGDAY with ME! I guess we have a Frank the Tank in the house!
I ended up doing a bunch more work for MS, my dad’s company for which I am the Research Analyst. I love it! It’s my nerd brain at its best and suits me perfectly. I also contributed my supervisory skills to the boys while they did some work on Rob’s car and James’ truck. They did a mighty fine job I’d say. Because they were so good, I baked them oatmeal PB chocolate chip cookies. Im a very nice girlfriend/friend. Kyleen, the
biggest baby youngest smartest of the krew ate as many as he could before he was full. Then he decided he wanted Tim Hortons and his belly made a bit more room for some chocolate chips. I had my first timmy’s coffee in almost 2 months, and I brought my Almond milk in the truck to spice it up since im living a milk-free life! I came across a Mega Score at Superstore… These puppies were on sale!
Anyways ta-ta for now! Lesson time!
