Shredded

Holy sore muscles.

Yesterday started with

a 30 minute jog on the treadmill. My legs were feeling Wednesday’s workout with Tionna so instead of going to Title Boxing and pounding on them some more, I stretched them out on the treadmill. It felt good and got the sweat moving!

Meal #1 was oats with protein.

And then I forgot to take another picture of my food the rest of the day.

Grapefruit are in season and I can’t get enough. They are so delicious!

Meal #2: Egg whites plus one whole egg, grapefruit

Meal #3: Turkey meatballs, roasted green beans, sweet potato waffle fries

Meal #4: Turkey meatballs, roasted green beans

Meal #5: Ribs (that Justin baked in the oven! Yum!), roasted green beans

Brussel Sprouts

If you have been following me for a while, you know I LOVE brussel sprouts.  The other night, when I was at the Vision Board party, one of the girls whipped out a container of food that included shredded brussel sprouts (Hi Heather!).

I could not quit thinking about them.

Why have I never made them?

That ends now (well, actually it ended last week)!

I took a bag of frozen brussel sprouts, fed them to my food processor with the shredding attachment on…….

and WA-LA!

Then I sautéed them in a little olive oil and salt.

Here they are after I divided them into my containers.

So easy and so good.

Still trying to get over this cold.  Now it’s in that phase where it’s just hanging on to be a jerk.  I mostly feel fine but I still can’t breath 100%.

These hats, I made, make me feel better.
