Wednesday Workout

A week in review…

Monday (5/21), day 1 of my 90 days of P90X2.  It’s hard, but I’m excited to do it.  I like that since I can’t really go to a gym, I have a program laid out for me and I don’t have to think about what I’m going to do for my workout everyday.  Cole had a Tball game and it was hilarious.  At one point the entire team on the field was either laying down, sitting, spinning, or picking something.  Pure entertainment!

Monday FB’s: 1tsp PB (1), protein shake (3), protein pancake (6), apple, balance bar (5), leftover fish and chicken w/snap  peas (4)

Workout: P90X2 Core and 30 min on my spin bike

Tuesday, hung out at the park and got a little sunburned.  My sister Sherilynn came over for dinner and I made turkey primavera spaghetti.  Basically it was ground turkey, 2 cans of diced tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, and some onion.  I cooked down the tomatoes to make it into a sauce and then added everything else.  I also added fresh basil and let it simmer to soak up the flavors.  It was super light, healthy, and delicious! (I had mine over spaghetti squash)

Tuesday FB’s: 1tsp PB and 1/2 banana (1), protein shake (3), FAGE yogurt (3), apple, carrots, Balance Bar (5), turkey primavera over spaghetti squash (6), apple w/1TBSP pb (3)

Workout: P90X2 Plyocide

Wednesday, did some yoga and errands for Cole’s birthday party.  Cole had another Tball game.

Wednesday FB’s: started the day off with 75min of hot yoga, 1tsp PB and 1/2 banana, my post-workout drink was a coke zero…Sherilynn must be rubbing off on me! when I got home I had a proper shake (3) :), protein pancake (6), chicken gyro (6) didn’t eat the pita, it was stale, green smoothie, nuts (3), leftover turkey primavera over spaghetti squash (5)

Workout: 75min Hot Yoga at Tadasana Yoga Studio (I’m sporting their sweatshirt below…love it!)

Thursday was a busy day.  We met Heidi and her kids and Rebecca at the park for lunch.  We packed out lunches and I tried to replicate my favorite Great Harvest veggie sandwich, except I added turkey.  Rebecca showed us pictures of her trip to Thailand.  It looks pretty amazing! After the park we went to my sisters house so I could watch the boys for the afternoon.  By the time we finally got home and got everyone in bed I was exhausted.  But I couldn’t go to bed until I blew up the balloons for Cole’s room.  I started this tradition last year.  I took pic once I finally got all of them in there, you can see Cole dead asleep in his bed.

Thursday FB’s: 1tsp PB (1), protein shake (3), turkey and veggie sandwich (8), Balance Bar (5), toast w/pb and strawberries (5)

Workout: P90X2 (Total Body and Ab Ripper)

Friday, Cole’s 5th birthday.  Holy cow, time flies!  Made him breakfast in bed and Skyped with daddy before school.  On the way to school we picked up doughnuts to celebrate with his school friends.  I came home and started getting things ready for his party.  Got on a conference call with Lexy and Carman that lasted over 2 1/2 hours.  My mom kept asking me questions and then I’d turn around with my ear phones in and she said You’re STILL on the phone!  It was like a flashback to high school when I would get in trouble for being on the phone so long.  We had a party for Cole at an indoor fun center in Salt Lake called Jungle Jim’s.  It’s pretty much his favorite place and we were lucky enough to have some Groupons!!  I got there early and set up with Avenger decorations and his big present, a new bike.  He hadn’t had a present ALL day and all he wanted to do when he got there was open presents.  Poor kid!  Next year, a present in the morning.  The day was so crazy that when I went back to look at what I ate I realized it wasn’t a ton which is why I was starving by the time the party came along and why I ate way too many cookies!

Friday FB’s: starting the day off bright and early with my friend Crystal Light Energy, toast w/PB (5), FAGE yogurt (3), tester cookie while making them for Cole’s party (5), apple, 2-mini Reese PB cups (3), piece of pizza (7), more cookie (10?), banana…felt super sick after eating clean all week and then eating junk

Workout: rest day

Saturday, ahhh I can breathe!  Today was chill day.  It was raining so it made it nice to just hang out at home.  Sherilynn and I went to see Men In Black 3.  I made Cole take a nap, he ended up sleeping for 4 hours!!!  Someone was seriously pooped.  The funniest thing was when Cole took the Cars camera he got for his bday and took a picture of his dinner because mommy always takes pictures of what she eats.

Saturday FB’s: 1tsp PB (1), post-workout shake (3), turkey and veggie sandwich (8), Balance Bar (5), licorice (4), rotisserie chicken and green beans (4)

Workout: P90X Balance and Power

Sunday, church day and friends over for dinner.

Sunday FB’s:  toast w/pb (5), balance bar (5), turkey melt (7), snacked on licorice, a reese’s pb cup, leftover cookie, pretzels, just very snacks (12?), pork w/veggies, rice, salad and fruit (6), and this amazing dessert that was meringue drizzled w/chocolate and then topped with greek yogurt mixed with cream and topped with strawberries…soooo delicious (forgot to take a pic)!

Monday, Happy Memorial Day!  We spent the day at my sister’s for swimming and a BBQ.  It was perfect weather and such a fun day!  Both boys were asleep before we made it to the freeway.  I was super proud of myself because even though I couldn’t get my workout in before we left in the morning, I came home and did it at 4:30 in the afternoon.

Monday FB’s: 1tsp PB (1), apple, balance bar (5), 6 or so peanut M&M’s, 8-10 potato chips (both of these were grabbing as I walked from one place to another), steak w/veggies, fruit, crackers and hummus (10), red vines (8), protein shake (3), toast (2)

Workout: P90X Core

Tuesday, took my dad to the airport and stopped by the cemetery to look at all the flowers and flags that were placed for Memorial Day.  As we were walking back to the car from my grandparents grave I told Cole that my grandpa was an FBI agent and he says “like Gibbs on NCIS?”  I laughed so hard I almost pee’d my pants.  My 5-year-old if obsessed with NCIS!  We stopped by Heidi’s to borrow their Skuut bike to help Cole learn how to ride his new bike.  Came home and got lunch, took a nap, and then attempted the bike lessons.  The bike we bought him is too big :(  So we have to go find another one.  Cole requested breakfast for dinner again which made me happy because I’ve been dying for my protein pancake and green smoothie (the magic bullet is broken, but I managed to resurrect it for one more meal).

Tuesday FB’s: 1tsp PB (1), shake (3), leftover chicken and pork w/veggies and tzatziki on the side (5), pretzels and Trader Joe’s nuts and berries (9), protein pancake and green smoothie (6)

Workout: P90X2 Plyocide

*sigh of relief, that was a long recap!

Holy snacks Batman!

Warning…do not read for inspiration on staying within your points!

So here’s the deal, I’m 37 weeks prego and I am finally feeling it.  I’m tired, feel like a house, and feel like I’m eating more than usual.  Heidi says “it’s about time!”  As far as counting points…it’s not happening.  So please don’t read my posts for inspiration on being hardcore at tracking points!  I am, however, still taking pictures of everything I eat with our favorite app dietSNAPS and exercising, so I give myself bonus points for that.

End of the fun in Houston, back to eating my way through Austin!

We had way too much fun staying up late and getting up early…so here’s a little recap of my Houston trip.

Tuesday…

Woke up early to meet Torry at his office in downtown Houston by 9am.  Grabbed a banana and a spoon full of peanut butter for breakfast.

He spent about an hour working on me and then I headed to Whole Foods to grab some food.  I was really in the mood for breakfast but it was 10:30 so they had stopped serving breakfast and were putting out lunch.  Nothing sounded or looked good.  I grabbed a bowl of fruit and a FAGE greek yogurt.  I went to get Lexy’s cookie and saw a cinnamon scone that looked enticing so I grabbed that too.

Had to stop at HEB for some agave nectar for my protein waffle and ran into this.

Only in Texas!  Got back to Carman’s and she made me a protein waffle…I was kind of mad at myself for eating the scone cause it wasn’t really worth it and the waffle was WAY better.

By the time I was done with my waffle I felt like a truck hit me.  We got the boys some lunch and then Cole and I went to take a nap.  Snack after we woke up.

The girls had some errands to do and then we came back to Carman’s and just hung out until Rook.  Dinner was more delicious stuffed peppers with spinach and half of a leftover veggie tortilla pizza.

I’ve never played Rook before but it was a really fun game.  And of course there was foods that always  makes it fun!  It was so nice to have so many healthy options!

And of course a few treats!!

I could only eat about 1/3 of the Better Than Sex pie made with sugar free pudding, fat free cool whip, graham crackers, and cream cheese…is was delicious.

Wednesday…

Another early morning waking up for the twins birthday before they had to leave for school.  I had to contain myself from devouring some Granny Hinson rolls and bacon, instead Carman made me another protein waffle.

Headed to Torry’s again so he could finish working on me.  I was a little leery about going back after how crappy I felt after the treatment Tuesday, but it has been so long since I’ve been worked on that it was expected.  Torry tried to make me eat healthy food after at his favorite Snap Kitchen, but Cole saved the day with his craving for Chipotle.

We had an interesting discussion at lunch that Lexy talked about briefly in her last post (click on “post” if you want to read it).  Torry was telling us about the book The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy.  In the book he talks about an assistant he had that he helped make small changes to significantly improve her life.  One of the changes she made was canceling her subscription to People magazine cause it was time to start studying her own life.  Made me think, how many of us submerge ourselves in the lives of celebrities through magazines, websites, blogs, tv shows,etc. in an effort to escape our own?  Food for thought.

Snack on the drive home.

We got on the road after lunch and got back to Austin pretty quickly.  Made a pit stop for an afternoon treat…a diet lemonade from Chic-Fil-A and a delicious bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.  I bought a couple different flavors and took them back to share with everyone.

Keller was craving some steak from Texas Roadhouse so we headed over there for some dinner.

I had a house salad, the Dallas filet (only ate half of it), and broccoli.

And of course had to finish the day with some more Blue Bell.  I made my own flavor by combining Dreyer’s half the fat mint chip with a smaller portion of Blue Bell cookies and cream…it was super yummy!

Thursday…

Love my husband…woke up and looked at the clock and it was 9am.  Ahhh…so nice.  The night before we had stopped by the store to grab some things to have for breakfast.  I found one of my old favorites Good Food Made Simple frozen steel cut oatmeal.

We took Cole to a park to play.  It was freaking 90 degrees in Austin today!  What the what? It’s February!!!!

Snack at the park.

Then I was sent on my way to enjoy a relaxing Mommy To Be massage at my favorite Spa the Lakehouse at Lake Austin, set up by my sweet hubby.

Lexy asked me yesterday “what other things do you do at a spa? read magazines?”  I told her you just be silent and enjoy it.  Ha…she was like what’s that?  I usually go into the steam room and sometimes the hot tub, but both of those were off limits today.  So I just enjoyed some alone time!  The massage was awesome, they always have amazing therapists.  I was literally almost asleep by the end.  I also enjoyed a delicious healthy spa lunch after my treatment.  I choose a portabello mushroom sandwich with tomatoes, avocado, and cheese.  It was so good and nice to get some veggies in for my day.

I spent as long as I wanted showering and getting ready.  When I got back Keller said I looked rejuvenated and refreshed.  It was lovely!

For dinner we went to one of our favorites and pretty much the only Texas food I have been craving since being in Utah…Mighty Fine Burgers.  I had a 1/4lb burger, and shared fries and a shake with Keller and Cole.

Pretty much a super fantastic day!
