Pump Up the Protein

First off, THANK YOU all so much for your amazing and kind comments on my last post. No matter how long I blog I don’t think it’s ever going to get easy to put myself out there like that. I truly appreciate every single comment. Thank you :)

Today I tried to make an effort to pump up the protein in my life. I made a protein cake thinger (it’s a technical term) for breakfast – protein powder, egg beaters, baking soda and something else I forgot (I’m not good at perfectly measuring things…).

I topped it with some AB and went to kickboxing!DSCN6611

I had to meet Ben for lunch because he forgot something important at home. There are literally only three options near his work – we went to a small deli. I ordered a veggie sandwich – hold the cheese, but opted for avocado.

Well, they messed up my order and held the hummus. Boo. But, I didn’t have them fix it because we were in a rush and they were super busy. DSCN6613It is difficult to eat a good protein rich meal for a quasi-vegetarian at a deli.  Boo. I considered tuna (which I love) but wasn’t feeling it.  But, all the healthy fats from the avocado made me satisfied.

I also got a plastic container of ice burg lettuce – I mean garden salad. DSCN6612I had some of Ben’s french fries for happiness. DSCN6614

I also brought a protein rich snack to eat while I was babysitting this afternoon. The cat seemed more interested in it than anyone else…IMG_0003It’s rare because this is the weirest cat ever – she’s actually super mean and hisses at practically everyone except the mom! IMG_0004

Ben wanted to order pizza and wings for dinner. I told him to hold that thought for our cheat day. And I made pita pizzas with some random frozen wings we had.IMG_0015

Not so Deceptively Delicious? I mixed up some chopped spinach with the tomato sauce and spread it on my pita for extra veggies.IMG_0009

Question: How do you tell if your husband really loves you?

Answer: Pile your pizza high with onions and see if he refuses to kiss you.

Done and done.


Dessert was a Pria bar. I somehow managed to score 15 Pria bars for fifty cents. I don’t know if it was a mistake or what, but a local discount store sold me this whole box for $0.49.  IMG_0019 I thought it was $0.49 each, but maybe not? IMG_0018

See ya in the morning :)

    Don’t you hate how “salad” is loosely translated to a container of iceberg lettuce and a few tomato slices? Gah! French fries definitely equal happiness, they are my achilles heel … that and cereal.

    One problem with consuming carbohydrate nutrients within 60 minutes prior to practice is the parallel meridian of blood insulin tightnesses which suppresses fat usage during employment and gains the using up of worth stored muscle glycogen (energy). This response is temporary and does not ordinarily impress most athletes in survival competition; however, it suits more distinctive in shorter high-intensity cases and to any athlete who may be alive to elevated reactions to blood sugar degrees. Timing and low weight lose management foods could benefit these athletes.

    One trouble with taking carbohydrate foods within 60 minutes prior to workout is the synchronized summit of blood insulin tightnesses which conquers fat employment during exercise and increases the using up of precious stored muscle glycogen (energy). This reception is passing and does not unremarkably impact most athletes in survival contest; however, it suits more peculiar in shorter high-intensity events and to any athlete who may be sore to extraordinary replies to blood sugar stories. Timing and low weight management diets foods could benefit these athletes.
