Monday's eats!

Sunday afternoon Eddie & I went out for the final round of NFL playoff games with a bunch of friends. It was a great time, but I think I had a few too many beers which led to delicious and not-so-nutritious nachos. Oh well you only live once, might as well do it right!!

(Beer-Mo's, warning: they make drinking beer even more fun!)

So today was a fresh start :

 (borrowed from my beloved www.lululemon.com)

For breakfast I had the TIU Breakfast Quinoa (so yummy I forgot to take a pic, so here is the batch I made this weekend)

I promise it tastes better than it looks!

For Meal 2: I had a banana sliced in half with organic peanut butter in between... If I had honey on hand at work I would have drizzled that as well for added deliciousness, but it is just as good without

Poor little guy looks like the train commute made him explode!

Meal 3: I had the TIU black bean burger with guacamole on ezikiel bread, which kept me full for hours (perfect work lunch)

Meal 4:  5pm, train snack/pre-workout snack time--this weeks bars are Clif bars..YUM!
I didn't even realize it had caffeine in it when I picked this flavor, but it came in handy as I had a serious case of the "Mondays" plus it was raining!

I did 15 minutes on the treadmill followed by a 20 minute ab class -which was a lot harder then I thought it would be- Basically I did a semi-lazy workout, but I got to the gym and that is what matters.

Meal 5: Baked chicken breast seasoned with Mrs.D and sauteed spinach, while watching The Big Bang Theory--perfect end to the day

I also made sure I was hydrated, especially after drinking the day before: 105 oz of H20 for the win.

Just Keep Sweating
