Today started with a change of plans for me. Originally I had planned on going for a long run and then killing my Dirty 30 workout, but my step-daughter’s volleyball game time was changed, so there is no way my run could happen. I could have still done my Dirty 30 workout, but then if I run tomorrow, I won’t have any “rest” day. So I decided to switch things a little bit and make today my active rest day and I will go for my run and do Dirty 30 tomorrow. So that being said, I got up this morning and got some yoga done! It felt great to start the day out that way.
Once I had my “work out” out of the way, the kiddo and I made muffins. Today was his day to bring snacks to his soccer game and I really wanted to give the kids some thing a little more healthy than just a bag of carbs and sugar, so we made some Power muffins and orange slices. I will post the recipe later this week, but they are packed with protein and made with whole grains. I had 2 of them for my breakfast, they were so yummy. (2 muffins = 1 yellow and 1/2 purple) I will post the recipe later this week.
By the time we got home from soccer and shopping for Halloween decorations I was starving! I missed my morning snack and it was after lunch time. Not a smart move on my part. So I threw together one of my go to dishes… eggs, sausage and zucchini with a little coconut oil in the pan. (2 red, 1 green, 1 tsp)
Mayson and I spent the afternoon decorating the house for Halloween. I can’t wait to see it once it gets dark. We hung up lights outside and got this cute little scarecrow ghost. Isn’t he cute? Only $8. Now I just hope he holds up to wind and rain! Most of the other decorations we got were from the Dollar Store. We got some really cute stuff.
I guess I worked up an appetite from all the decorating so I refueled with my usual Shakeology, Vegan Chocolate, instant coffee and 1/2 of a frozen banana. Yum (1 red, 1 purple)
For dinner tonight I roasted some zucchini, and served it with some low carb meatballs that I made a few weeks ago and froze, they are so yummy and moist. I usually buy Rao’s Marinara sauce because they don’t add any sugar and it’s the cleanest store bought sauce I have found, but the store didn’t have it when I went grocery shopping, so I tried a different sauce that looked pretty similar from the ingredients. I also made some Dreamfields pasta. Have you heard of it before? Its supposed to be a healthier carb pasta with lots of fiber in it. (1 red, 1 yellow, 1 green, 1/2 purple)
