Happy Friday! I know I said this on Wednesday but I really cannot believe how quickly this week flew by and I really think that is due to the fact that I am not counting down the work hours every day. In case you missed it on my Facebook page yesterday, I am working for an amazing eco-friendly fashion company, Hearts.com as their media and communication specialist and I think I'm in love. B told me last night that my overall attitude/outlook/personality has changed for the better over the past week and that I just seem like a much happier person. I should have taken this advise a long time ago, but if you are doing something 40+ hours a week that you don't like and that doesn't inspire you, make a change. I am beyond excited to grow with this company and see what the future holds :)
[Stepping off my pedestal] This morning started off great with another sweaty workout from the Body Earned program. I'll be honest, I'm not a circuit training kind of person. I've always preferred one or two muscle group splits with heavy lifting and sprinkling in super sets and drop sets....James' program is circuit mania, and even though I have basically crawled out of the gym every day this week, I really truly love the change. I think it's not only good for my muscles but it's good for my mind too... I always want to keep an open mind about fitness and continue to try out new things, I think that's really the best way to grow as a person (and to grow your muscles :) )
The crazy workout and cardio left me ravenous so I made these ridiculously amazing french toasts cups from this months Oxygen.
I'm sure 99% of you have this sitting on your coffee table right now, but for the 1% that are totally missing out, don't worry... here is the recipe.
Adapted from Oxygen Magazine
4 egg whites
2 packets Truvia
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
cinnamon to taste
2 slices Ezekiel Bread
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. In a bowl combine eggs, sweetener, vanilla and cinnamon and mix. Dip the bread in the mixture until they are completely soaked.
3. Spray 2 muffin tins with non-stick spray and stuff one piece of bread into each tin. Bake for 15 minutes.
4. Top each bowl with 1/4 cup cottage cheese mixed with your favorites-- I did cinnamon and the other packet of truvia. You can easily add fruit, protein powder, or other spices.
