Finally Friday :)

Is it just me, or did this not seem like a short week at all? Nonetheless, it's finally Friday and I'm SO happy about it. I just have to share this beautiful picture of the sunrise I snapped as I was walking into the gym this morning.
I love when I take a minute to appreciate the little things... it doesn't happen often enough.
I have never really been a coffee drinker, not that I don't like it but it tends to give me a stomach ache. Anyway, B loves coffee and I told him earlier this week he should try it with protein powder and almond milk, so he did... it's great! I think he made it every day this week and I may or may not have snuck in a few cups myself :)
I definitely recommend you give it a try, especially because I know there are a ton of people that are addicted and trying to stop using sugar and creamers in their coffee.      { Both are so, so bad for you!!} I also read somewhere (I think I read too much because I can never remember where I see what) that you can bring your own scoop of protein to Starbucks and they will blend it in your drink. Pretty cool! For dinner tonight, I tried Jamie Easons chicken marinade that she suggested last week and it will definitely be a regular around here. It's just balsamic dressing (make sure you look for low sugar, low fat, and give the ingredients list a once over) and Dijon mustard-- I did 1/2 bottle of the dressing and probably 5-6 tbsp of the mustard and just threw it all in a gallon sized ziplock for 24 hrs. I had B throw it on the grill today and then tossed in on some romaine lettuce with tomato and balsamic/ACV as dressing. Pretty tasty!
I tried a couple new recipes for my clean eating football menu that I'm putting together and they both turned out great (phew!) so hopefully I will have something done soon! Speaking of football, I'm going to spend the rest of my Friday night watching the ASU vs. Mizzou game. Go Sun Devils!! 
PS- My hamstrings are still not very happy with me... I hope I'm recovered by Sunday, because it's leg day again!

  1. Hi there...going through all of your great posts. QT about this. What flavor protien powder and how much per one cup of coffee? Sounds interesting to me, as I already use almond milk. Thanks,
    Heather :)

  2. I've only tried it with chocolate, but I'm sure vanilla would be good too! As far as how much, it depends... you can do a whole scoop and it would pretty much be like a coffee protein shake, or you can do less if you just want the flavor. I think I did about 1/2 scoop.
