Busy Bee.. Bzzzz!

I've been so busy between work and everyday errands that it's been hard to blog when I'm done for the day.

























BUSY BEE Mug

Yesterday's food was:

Breakfast
1 cup Chobani vanilla greek yogurt with Sprouts sugar free "Go Nuts" granola, strawberries & bananas
Starbucks grande decaf mist with sugar free vanilla and non-fat milk

Snack
handful almonds

Lunch
previous nights dinner
Winter Abundance Bowl with salmon

Snack
1 Cuties Clementine®

Dinner
Polenta with bell peppers, mushrooms, chickpeas & chicken italian sausage
I used this recipe:

Creamy Polenta & Mushrooms

























but added red & yellow bell peppers, chicken sausage and used the tube of prepared polenta, cut it and sautéed it.  This makes life so much easier and you can serve this in any form.















So I've decided to start 2 new things on the blog tomorrow.

#1
I've always been curious with dieting exactly what food fall into certain food groups.  I know most of us guess, however, when trying to consume a certain amount box things it's good to know for sure.  So, tomorrow I'm starting a series of lists for the unknowing (me included of course).  I hope this will be educational for me and anyone else.

I'll start off by listing "Proteins"!  I was told to eat protein with every meal, and so I thought I should know for sure what they are, because I don't always like to consume meat with every meal, nor should you.  According to Bob Harper of "The Biggest Loser" fame, you should have one meatless day a week.







































Bob Harper's "The Skinny Rules: The Simple, Nonnegotiable Principles for Getting to THIN"

These are all great tips and ones I plan on keeping on my fridge as reminders.

#2
I'm going to start a countdown to my "Beats by Dre" goal.  Remember I said that if I stayed on my path for a month that I would reward myself with new headphones.  I think these goals are super important.  It's something to look forward to.  I might do a goal present every month?  Something to consider... I LIKE IT! DONE! Well, lots to post tomorrow, oh and by the way my workout yesterday included:

10 minutes Elliptical @ 10 incline 5 resistance (I like to do a heavy incline on weight days as a warm-up)
25 minutes Alternating Shoulder & Arm Exercises

As I'm getting back to the gym, I am taking it slow and being very habitual so as to just create a routine.  My ULTIMATE goal is to change my workouts to the mornings, which I'm hoping will happen when my "Routine" gets more routine and I hopefully gain some energy from my healthy lifestyle.  IT WILL HAPPEN!!!
