I’m Not Delusional

Good news! Sick boy soup worked! Ryan is feeling much better today. I think the only one sad about this is Sadie who will miss her sicky playmate.

Workout and Oatty Breakfast

Today my cardio Tuesday was once again a cardio hodgepodge consisting of:

  • 15 min. stair master
  • 10 min. run
  • 15 min. incline walking
  • 10 min. elliptical

A cardio hodgepodge is the perfect workout on mornings where I’m feeling antsy and don’t want to go for a long run or take a spinning class. Jumping from machine to machine keeps it interesting (and keeps me sweaty, too!).

After my workout and Sadie’s morning walk, my tummy was grumblin’ and wanted something warm and filling.

I mixed a quarter of a cup of oats with a quarter of a cup of Flax Z Snax butter pecan hot cereal and stirred in a scoop of All the Whey cake batter protein powder for an added protein punch.

It was hot, creamy and delicious!

Tuna Salad Pita Pocket

As I was going over my eats from yesterday in my head today, I realized that vegetables weren’t the only thing lacking… protein was practically non-existent as well.

Enter: canned tuna!


Canned Tuna

This salty (and stanky!) lil’ fish is packed with flavor and seemed like the perfect way to incorporate a filling and lean protein source into my lunch.

I made an easy tuna salad by adding light mayo, relish, mustard and red onion to the tuna.

Tuna Salad (Nasty lookin', huh?)

I scooped the tuna salad into a whole wheat pita and added a couple handfuls of spinach and several slices of a fresh plum tomato.
