Good day all!
I’m glad you liked the latest post on the About Time Protein. I just ordered 36 packets of different favors! STOKED. I ordered some strawberry flavored whey, so I will definitely be trying out recipes and sharing later on.

I wanted to share last nights dinner with you guys, cuz it was super healthy, gorgeous, and easy, and if you’re on a budget, a great idea. My friend Jules has also jumped on the low carb/low glycemic bandwagon with me, and is looking great! She made us a roasted turkey that she just threw in the oven with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. You can find whole turkeys at the grocery stores right now for a really great price.
She roasted some cauliflower, sautéed some onions, threw it all into the blender with a little fat free half & half, and viola!
Also, just tossed arugula in some blood orange olive oil and vinegar. Super easy, and delicious.

We ate right out of the roasting pan! Lol
It was soooo tender! 350 degrees for just under 2 hrs. Then you can keep the rest of it in the fridge to pack for lunches.

I’ve been getting some comments from friends to post more of my workouts, so here’s one that I love doing on the days where I don’t have much time to hit the gym. This is a great one to do right before you jump in the shower. It’s quick. Only 10 minutes.
I’m leaving for San Fransisco tomorrow with my best friends, so I’m trying to get in as much exercise as I can this week. Cuz, believe me, when us girls get together, we love to cook, EAT, and drink!

These mother effers are what I can’t have in my house…so I threw them in my lunch bag today to give to my coworkers. I just really can’t have this in my house. It’s torture.

I started taking the stairs instead of the elevator leaving the parking garage. You never know, maybe it’ll burn at least one of the chocolate square I ate last night :/

Small achievement but something is better than nothing. I found this on pinterest, and though it was was totally appropriate for todays goal. Everyday, strive for the best. If you fall, get right back up.

Today’s eats were really clean for the most part. This is the mantra that I’ve been trying stick to. Although sometimes hard, I know I feel the best when I stick to this type of diet.

8:00 p.m rolled around quick. I got home from work a little achy, so I laid in my living room and did some quick stretches before heading to ZUMBA. I ate my din before class cuz I knew by the time I got home, it would be quite late.

Did I mention to ya’ll that I’m gonna be leaving for San Francisco tomorrow? I’m glad I got one last workout in before the girls trip. I packed my suitcase in a super crazy rush (hopefully I got everything I needed) and took off to Zumba.

BEFORE ZUMBA

All cozy, beanie and all.

AFTER ZUMBA:

Sweaty lady. I was totally and utterly DRENCHED!

Of course I went  ALLLLL out and managed to burn 600 calories. There were lots of new faces in class, and they did GREAT!

I love seeing them get it. It’s sometimes not easy, but everyone BROUGHT IT HOME TODAY!

I LOVE THIS: I found this really great log that you could literally use everyday. It’s really fantastic. And, since receiving comments about posting more workouts and stuff, I thought this would be perfect to keep track of the daily progress, goals, and just seeing where my heads at, you know?

Ok I will tell you the truth… the whole “no Chocolate ” thing… yeah… already broke that. woops.
