I prefer to post about things going on with my journey but right now I am going to post another giveaway. This one is pretty cool.
It’s Gym In A Bag. The link to enter the giveaway is HERE.

It’s all you need to do a complete and effective workout at home. Rather than retyping all that you get in the kit, I’ve snagged a picture from the website. I was resistant to using bands but since using them in my Body Blast class I can see how great they work.

I love my smoothies

so much. I just finished my old standby of peanut butter chocolate smoothie that I found on the Jillian Michaels website. I modified it this morning to add some chocolate milk. I recently won a couple of coupons for Horizon Organic Chocolate milk and picked one up over the weekend. I was hoping to reward myself after a long run…well a 3 mile one and have a nice cup. However, the weekend was a bit of a kickback…mainly yesterday so no runs and no real exercise to speak of. So I am back on track this morning and decided that I better get to using this delicious milk…So back to my smoothie and the chocolate milk. Normally I use:

1 cup  almond milk
1 tbls organic natural peanut butter
1 medium banana
1 cap full of Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
Ice – as much as you like usually  1 1/2 cups.

So today I used a little less almond milk (3/4 cup) , the same amount of peanut butter, same size banana, half a cap of protein powder and then added the yumminess of 1/2 cup of organic chocolate milk. It tasted pretty much the same but slightly more creamy which I like. Made me think I was indulging in a nice chocolate milk shake. To top it off it has nearly the same amount of calories: 385 calories for breakfast. This should hold me till lunch because of the protein, which I like but I could have a small snack and not go drastically over my calorie allowance. I use to track and was given a goal of 1367 to aim for each day, but usually shoot for around 1500 especially if I exercise which I will today. I am heading to my favorite class after work today…Total Body Cuts at Total Woman  and home to spend some time with hubby watching some shows before they take our DVR away ;-(.

I am also looking forward to my lunch today which will be a nice hot bowl of Progresso Reduced Sodium Chicken Noodle Soup, a small slice of sourdough bread and a side of steamed spinach with some balsamic vinegar…pure yumminess.

Snacks for today include a slice of string cheese, some fruit (melons, pineapple and grapes) and some new yogurt which I am trying a new flavor Boysenberry Pomengrante of a brand I’ve had before called YoPlus. It does have about 110 calories and contains some sugar, but I figure it is better than artificial sweeteners. I know I could do better, but I have a hard time with plain yogurt. On to dinner which will be a surprise as hubby has not yet told me what we are having, but if all goes well I should have about 450 calories left for dinner. So I should be good. Off to finish some work and get changed for class in about an hour!!

I love these giveaways…

not just for the chance to get some free stuff, but to be made aware of  products out there to try. I especially like this one as it is gluten free. I might just have to convince the hubby to give the pizza dough a chance. I have been leary of some of these natural foods, wondering if they will taste like cardboard or just not good at all. I think you have to try or you will never know. So here it is:

Another giveway

Hey I found another giveaway through Twitter.      Aurorae yoga mat giveaway @possiblymaybe

I think these mats would be awesome to use while practicing yoga. I really like the fact that they are thicker than most. I know I would like the one I have now to have a little more cushion to it.  Hope I can win this one, but definately will seek this out if I don’t.
