I am leaving for North Carolina at 3:30am tomorrow morning. Lets just take a second to digest how incredibly early that is shall we??? Go ahead…I will wait.
Ok. IT’S EARLY!!!!! The APEX/AFAA Convention/Training weekend is finally here! I am so excited! Friday will be a full day of primary techniques, and Sunday is strength training. I am pumped!! I woke up stressed, so I immediately started trying to pack/wrap my mind on what I needed to get done for the trip. I have also been attempting to study the handbook…but seem to be easily distracted by the blog world. Darn all you wonderful bloggers who keep my attention whilst I should be studying!!! 😉
Woke up this morning with an intense fruit craving, to which I responded.
and my newest obsession of the minute….homeade fruit dip (oikos and natural peach jam)
Plated up the pear and berries with a glorious carrot muffin…
After breakfast I studied diligently and was super productive…ok, there may have been some Ellen Degeneres involved between the super productiveness! I am really trying my best to keep my vitamin regime up, and forcing myself to do my multivitamin everyday. I am thinking of switching, because my current vitamin makes me really nauseous! I have tried it before, after, and even during meals. It always makes me sick to my stomach! What multi-vitamin do you use?
Eventually I headed to the YMCA to meet Christie and Kim for lunch. Kim absolutely cracked me up, by saying that she doesn’t have enough going on for a blog, so she will always just be featured on mine and Emily’s blog and be satisfied. So here ya go Krucker…heres your daily shout out from Mo-Mo! 😉
Made a protein shake to take with me, I plan on chugging this guy after Total Body class tonight:
- 8 oz Almond Milk
- 1 Scoop Jillian Micheal’s Protein Powder (Vanilla Cream Shake)
- Crushed/Cubed Ice
(or in my case, enjoy six hours later after a crazy class -o- fun!)
When I got to work I was presented with an interesting option for snack. With V-Day coming up, I have a feeling I will be eating things like this more often. Heck, it made a nice incentive for me to begin studying for my convention!
Gotta love the candy hearts. Kisses don’t hurt either. You know this boy never turns down chocolate.
I studied for a while, complete with a sugar buzz, and then headed to Panera to meet Kim (she strikes again!! 😉 ) and Christie!
My lunch was the standard Panizzle classic:
1/2 Veggie Sandwich with fresh mozz instead of fetta (I am just not a fan. 😦 ), some veggie-pesto soup goodness, and an apple! This sandwich is heaven:
A nice, grainy, tomato bread and chocked full of lettuce, cucumbers, pepadew peppers, tomato, onion, and a delicious hummus. The soup is “oh em gee” worthy as well:
The pesto totally makes this:
After the attack:
Heres another question for you. Do you leave food on your plate intentionally? How often do you “clean” your plate? Seems like most often times I literally do everything but lick the bowl/plate of my current eat-age.
Ok, time for two hours of studying before heading to teach my KidFitt class, then back to teach Total Body at the YMCA…today’s class is called “Band Burn” where we will be using the bands for different workouts. They are killer, can’t wait! Have a great one bloggies!!!
