Big Ol’ Bowl of Smoothie!

Chocolate PB Smoothie in a Bowl

Big bowl of Salad for supper last night!

Big ol' bowl of Salad!

In the Bowl:

  • baby spinach and romaine
  • A handful of snow peas
  • half a beefsteak tomato
  • julienne slices carrots
  • a mini cucumber
  • M&M Meat Shops Bistro stuffed Chicken, Spinach & Ricotta (160cal)


Last night at aquafit the instructor changed it up and did intervals, with some plyometrics IN the water.  It was great, I could feel the burn, and had to work way more than normal, which is awesome, as that is why I go! (This however didn’t stop me from muttering under my breath about my “love” for her!) There was a midnight swim at the pool after the class, and since my kids played nicely at the playground while I did  my thing I promised I would let them stay for an hour.  I had tread water for probably an hour being the only adult in the pool. When a friend of mine showed up to watch her kids from the deck, so I got out happily and visited till 11:30. The kids were in their glory!  …swimming outside with their friends WAY past bedtime!

in the mix...

This morning I felt a like a smoothie but felt like I wanted to “eat” something so a smoothie in a bowl was in order :)  To help make the smoothie even thick and creamier I added a pinch of Guar and Xanthan gums…

getting ready to blend

Today’s flavour was Chocolate & Peanut butter with some PB Granola sprinkled on top!

With the added PB granola (33 cal, and worth every single one of them!) It made it seem like an even better treat!


I have some running around to do today, and am going to prime the outside of the house where the new bay went in a few weeks ago, as it has finally been a couple days without some rain!  Have a great day!
