Hey Bloggies ~ Hope you all had a Happy Friday!
Whew! It has been a long day! It is 10:00 already ~ I am trying to decide if I just want to go to bed early tonight or squeeze in workout #2 for today.
This morning I woke up at 4:50 for an AM workout before the school day. It was hard to get myself up, but the morning workout felt great and I felt like I had more energy than normal throughout the school day today. I am going to continue doing morning workouts on Fridays, as another part of my Lent Plan.
I ended up doing about 45 minutes of cardio ~ Turbo Jam Fat Blaster and Turbo Jam Cardio Party Remix. I could never handle the intensity of an Insanity workout at 5:00 in the morning, but these were perfect and I worked up a major sweat, especially wearing the weighted handgloves!!
I followed the workout with half of a cinnamon raisin bagel with spray butter, on the way to school, of course.
We are studying the phases of the moon in science. Check this out:
I love kids, seriously. A moon tattoo to celebrate our science topic ~ How could one not love it?? I just smiled and snapped a pic!
Lunch was super quick today because we finally had outdoor recess and it was my day for duty. I had some leftover peas and a small salad, with Goldfish and no turkey. I was bummed about recess duty at first, but it felt nice to get outside, I walked laps around the pavement while I watched the kiddos play.
Meal #2 ~ Green Lunch
Friday zoomed by and it was prep time before I knew it. Yum ~ so glad I bought these raspberries and blackberries yesterday. I am in love with them, especially when I sprinkled them with Sun Crystals. I accompanied the berries with a Kashi GoLean Pretzel & Caramel bar.
Meal #3 ~ Prep Snack
I had Meal #4 when I got home from school. Usually on Friday I book it out of there, ready for the weekend, but today I hung around for a few to chit-chat with the teachers on my team. Then I had a couple stops to make on my way home. I ended up getting home around 5:30 or so, which is when I enjoyed a whole wheat wrap with lettuce, pickle, salsa, and Laughing Cow. I could not decide if I wanted Goldfish, Baked Cheetos, or Chex Mix on the side, so I had a tiny bit of each one, dipped in my mom’s homemade salsa ~ the perfect snack!!
Meal #5 was my actual dinner with Ben meal. I was very unoriginal, but very delicious, tonight – Yes, another omelet. My sister keeps stressing the importance of getting my protein via other sources, since I am not giving my body the turkey and grilled chicken it is used to. I love KT ~ between she and Cassie, I have all the nutritional info I could ever need!! I had another small salad on the side – exactly like my lunch salad. One can never get enough salad, right??
Meal #5 – Dinner
I was so excited for dessert tonight! Yesterday while at the grocery store, I must have had a major sweet tooth, because I came home with some many new sweet treats. I wanted to incorporate all of them into tonight’s dessert, but that was not possible. Here are two new treats used in dessert combo #1. Quaker Carmel Corn Rice Cakes plus Smucker’s Sugar Free Dessert Breakfast Syrup. This was the perfect combo and plenty of sweetness to satisfy.

All Together Now
This dessert really hit the spot!! In fact, it hit the spot sooo much that I had two more rice cakes with syrup. Hey, it’s so new and so delish, I just could not help myself tonight! You know the feeling, right??
Goodnight Bloggies! :) Enjoy your weekend!!
