Enough said. WOW—BodyPump is definitely a challenge!!!!! I didn’t realize it was a total hour devoted to strength! For some reason I thought there were cardio circuits but this was just lifting and squatting and lunging…repeat! Throughout the whole class I was thinking, “why am I here?!” but I’m really glad I went because, like usual, after working out I feel a ton better. I didn’t enjoy the class as much as spin, but I would like to try to do this once a week because it was a really good all around strength class. In my mind, spinning is FUN and this was….hard! Haha!
When I got home from the class it was about 7:00 and my tummy was ready for dinner! I had an awesome combo tonight…..earlier, I made the tamari roasted chickpeas from ED&BV and I served a portion of them atop this interesting new product:
This looked so intriguing at Publix that I just couldn’t say no! It was actually really really good…..and cooked in about 10 minutes! I also had a little over half of a roasted butternut squash and some spinach with hummus for a complete meal.
It was a “pretty” dinner, don’t ya think?! It also tasted great and was so filling that I didn’t even need dessert after. I am sipping on some sugar cookie tea with agave though 🙂
Some people in my last post asked how exactly I make my breakfast cookies. Well, I followed Gina’s instructions on her blog! Here’s what to do:
The night before mix 1/2 cup oats with 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder (or not) and 1 spoonful nut butter. Add two tablespoons skim or soymilk and half a mashed banana. Mix well so everything is nice and combined and then flatten the entire mess out on a small plate. Flatten it so its all relatively the same thickness and then stick it in the fridge! The oats will soak up the moisture and liquid and will “harden” to be cookie-like. Enjoy!
I’m honestly not sure how cocoa powder would taste…try it and see! You might need some sweetener because cocoa powder is bitter and chocolate protein powder is pretty sweet. Play around with it and see what works best for you!
I’m off to catch up on emails and hit the sack with my book!
See you tomorrow!!! 🙂
Edited to add: ahhhh yes there’s my infamous sweet tooth hollerin’! I just had a SCM cookie to satisfy it and now am calling it a night…..
