School is starting up in a matter of days; therefore I’m one busy bee! Good thing I’m the kind of person who likes being busy.
I got up this morning and went for a run. I ran 4 miles. It would have been enjoyable if I didn’t get lapped by a senior citizen. So, that made me feel less than awesome. When I was finished, I did Ab Ripper X from the P90X program and that kicked me in the
I wasn’t too hungry this morning, but I didn’t want to skip breakfast. So I made myself a delicious protein shake
This delectable shake mimics the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie Bowl from Peanut Butter Fingers. I had half of a banana that I wanted to use so I incorporated that into the shake and I used only half of a cup of chopped strawberries. Also, I never heard of Xanthan Gum until I started reading her blog so I used a pinch of Corn Starch for thickening. It didn’t work. I don’t recommend it. Oh, and I used Vanilla Protein Powder because I didn’t have Chocolate Protein Powder. But everything else is the same 🙂
After having breakfast it’s been nothing but work! I’m currently in the process on making this disappear
After getting annoyed with packing, I decided to go out for a bit and run some other errands that were waiting to be crossed off on my To-Do List. I drove to Annapolis in order to go to Whole Foods. Since I was in the area, I decided to meander over to Charm City Run. They were having an awesome sale and I bought this shirt for $19, score!
Now for the best part, lunch!
Chances are my lunch > your lunch
A grilled Caprese Sandwich! It’s super easy to make too!
- 2 slices Ezekiel Bread
- Pesto Sauce
- Two slices of Tomato
- 1 slice Mozzarella Cheese
- Basil Leaves
- Spinach Leaves (extra vitamins 😛 )
Place all these ingredients on to the Ezekiel bread. Put on a George Foreman Grill. Cook until the cheese melts. Enjoy!
Then I had my coffee with a Think Thin Bar.
Oh just a quick update on my blog. I am making the decision to not blog about Y&R because I find tweeting about it more enjoyable. Also, I want to center this blog around Health & Fitness and not a TV show I’m obsessed with. If you want to hear my commentary on the show, just follow me on Twitter, @THEbrigibbons.
Hope everyone is not having a case of the Mondays!
