So sorry for being super MIA for the last 5 days!!
I have LOTS of stuff to catch up on starting with….
Scrumptious oatmeal. With chia seeds, cinnamon and vanilla almond milk.
And raisons, cashew butter and raspberry jam.
Snack of red peppers with roasted red pepper hummus.
And some grapes!
For lunch I had leftovers from Monday (which I hope to repeat sometime this week!) on a bed of spinach and 1 tbsp of goat chedda. I zoned out when I pulled this out of the fridge and forgot it was a salad so I threw it in the microwave and it came out a big wilted spinachy mess. You’re welcome for not taking a picture.
Suuuupper was this beast of a yam. Heh heh.
It was massive and I only managed to eat about 1/3 ish of it.
With cottage cheese, baked beans and asparagus. deliciousnessss.
Holla Waffle Wednesday!!
I rocked you today.
Terrible pictures but waffles benedict is the BOMBBB digg. I made hollandaise sauce with laughing cow (duh) and stuffed my Hemp Plus waffle with spinach and tomato slices.
Look what I made (again)!!! maple cinnamon almond butter!!!!
The maple roasted goodness
I swear the key to good almond butter is patience. Mine took half an hour! With tons of stopping to scrape down the bowl. And taste tests After 5 minutes:
After 10 minutes:
After 20 minutes:
After 30 minutes:

The official test tester and his mail man:
He loved it. Just like his mama. I could eat this stuff alll day.
I took Beasley for about an hour walk and when I came back, decided to do a HIIT on the treadmill. Have never done one of these before but Janetha B. does them and that girl does nooo wrong. I did 1 minute at 4 mph, 1 minute at 8 mph, and 1 minute at 5.5 mph. I did this for 20 minutes and then walked at 3% for 5 minutes. I SWEAT MY FACE OFF. I felt like I was walking on an escalator after haha. I love that feeling (The exercise burn, not the escalator feeling lol)
For lunch I just had a simple soupwith a poached egg, some goat chedda and a piece of toast.
I luuuurve dipping my bread in my soup.
I made some shweeeeet puffs too this afternoon. I can’t remember where I got the recipe from, but I do have one! And I’ll hook you up with it suuuuper soon. PROMISE.
I ate tons of these.
Supper was an israeli couscous salad with roasted tomatoes, garlic and feta, a salad, salmon skewer, pattypan squash and some bread and butter pickles.
If you have never had israeli couscous before, GO BUY SOME! They are great. Mine came in a small bag like this
Work was crazy on Wednesday!! It must of been just because I was out of it for awhile and I forget how it gets in there, but JEEEZ!! It’s fun though and I am sooooo happy to be doing CPIC again
I wasn’t too hungry when I woke up so breakfast was super light.
Apple slices with maple cinnamon almond butter.
I took Beas for a walk and then came home and did the Jillian Michaels yoga video.
She’s crazy. And I need to do that video about 10 more times until I am comfortable with the moves. Has anyone else done this video before??
Lunch was massive. Cleeearly.
More israeli couscous salad, roasted veggies, coleslaw and mahi mahi. With a big glob of hummus.
Supper was a packed up salad with salmon and roasted veggies.
