Lazy Recovery Day

Yesterday I had a super lazy day. My body is a little run down from working hard and lack of sleep. So pretty much all day I lounged and slept! I didn’t get to sleep in as late as I wanted to, a little pup woke me crying šŸ˜‰

After coffee, I had a BIG breakfast that included a banana and this overnight power oatmeal:

This oatmeal has unsweetened almond milk, natural applesauce, vanilla extract, chia seeds, goji power, and chopped almonds! SUPER  BREAKFAST!

A protein shake was followed

I like to enjoy it. I never chug it

After going to the bank and depositing that glorious check, Phoebs and I headed to G-Mama and Pop Pops. Phoebs and Shelbs attacked each other! So cute

I spent a good amount of time talking about work and catching up on things. I love talking to my parents. I’m very fortunate that they care about me so much and they are over the moon proud of everything I do. I’m definitely very lucky! I cannot imagine not being close to them. A lot of people I know don’t even talk to their parents, it makes me sad. I enjoy the time I spend with them and wouldn’t change it for anything in the world šŸ™‚

For lunch I snacked on this:

Greek Yogurt with blackberries and and orange. The orange was super sweet!

Egg whites with avocado. Yum!

And ended up taking an extended nap! The plan was to close my eyes for 45 minutes and then go to the grocery store, but I ended up sleeping 2 hours! G-Mama didn’t wake me, she knows I have long days at work and Minnie needs sleep. Such a good mama šŸ™‚

At home I made a delicious clean dinner

Strawberry and Mixed Green Salad with my homemade Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette, Chicken Breast, and Freekah (my favorite grain)

If you’ve never had freekah before I highly suggest it. I like it better than brown rice or quinoa. It’s green wheat and roasted so it has a very sweet flavor to it, but nutty at the same time. Freekah is loaded with protein, and has 4 times the amount of fiber than other grains out there. It also has a low glycemic index so it is a great food for managing and fighting diabetes! You can find it in organic markets or health food stores šŸ™‚

I also made a new recipe for snacking during the week, Spicy Clean Hummus— Click!

I love the color! Reminds me of the store bought hummus I would always buy, but this is clean šŸ™‚

Speaking of clean, I’ve done a pretty good job of cleaning out my DVR from the week. I’m so tired when I get home, that I don’t watch my shows (except Ellen- that’s a must!), so everything is being watched this weekend. Don’t you just love TV? I do!

Later on that night I caught Phoebs chasing her tail again… she keeps getting fluffier by the day! Yay to her adult coat coming in

That's a treat by her tail FYI

I also am excited because I finally purchased a tripod for my camera. It was fairly cheap on Amazon, only like 23 bucks. So hopefully soon I will be able to take pictures of the most popular exercises I do and post them instead of trying to describe them over and over! šŸ™‚

Today I have a busy day ahead of me with lots of errands and grocery stops. I need to go to at least 2 different stores to get everything I need for the week! Gym time is much needed after my day of rest, so it’ll be time to plow through some leg work! I also need to finish some chores around the apartment and finally give Miss Buffay that bath.

Come back for more and keep sending those e-mails! I love it!

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,
