In the groove

Hello friendssssss

I've got some energy today and I'm totally digging it! I've been pretty tired these days overall and been passing out on the bed by 8 or so. Yes, I'm an old woman stuck in a young girls body ;)

So let's catch up on some meals this week...

Monday lunch
 A romaine/spinach salad with bell pepper and a heated black bean veggie patty on top with a drizzle of fat free ranch. On the side was a non fat blueberry greek yogurt.

Tuesday lunch
Carrots and un-pictured broccoli with spinach artichoke hummus for dipping. Plus, a almond butter and jelly sandwich on an Arnold thin.

today's lunch
Stacy's Pita chips with salsa/guac/bean dipping, Muscle Milk Light, and a Thanksgivingy spinach salad. In it was turkey, feta , cranberries, tomato, and onion. I topped it with light honey mustard dressing. YUM!!!

I like the Muscle Milk brand for protein shakes.  The light version I have is only 100 calories and contains 15 grams of protein. Not too shabby. I had it after I did this:

Kettle bell baby! I love mixing up my workouts and thoroughly enjoy kettle bell. It works my lats, shoulders, and many other back muscles which can be hard to get to sometimes. I started off the day with 40 minutes on the elliptical before heading in to work. I'm starting to understand why everyone's so crazy about early morning workouts. It feels great to get in and get it done!

And now I leave you with this little picture: I like to call it "Pure Happiness"
