This morning I woke up on a mission. I wanted to get to the gym and have a really good long strength training workout. First I fueled up with these pumpkin protein pancakes for breakfast. I think this might become a weekend tradition for me.
Delish!! Apple butter in between and peanut butter on top. No need for syrup here. And then I was off to the gym...in the rain.
I did this fisrt set of workouts up top 3 times. Each set took me about 10 minutes and I rested for 1 minute in between sets. Aftet that I did a couple of machines before I moved on to just a little bit of ab work in the second workout. I finished off with some planks before stretching and heading home. When I got home Champ was waiting for me! I played with him for a little before making my lunch. Matt and I picked up a new toy for him last night. It has 16 squeakers in it. Champ pretty much freaked out when he realized this haha.
squeaker cow. one squeak per square
Tuna salad that I mixed with hummus instead of my usual yogurt, grapes and a pumpkin yogurt mixture up top!
Then for my project of the day...cook a turkey breast for the first time. I got a free turkey breast from our grocery store for spending x amount of dollars before easter.
Turkey dinner! Turkey, corn, cranberry stuffing and baked zucchini fries
I love these zucchini fries. They are perfect for cookouts and so easy to make. I got the idea from skinnytaste and adapted it to what I had in my pantry. I mixed together some panko, parmesean cheese and garlic powder in one bowl and egg whites in a nother. I cut the zucchini up into strips, dipped them in the egg whites and then into the panko mixture. I baked them at 425 for 20 minutes. They even turned out good the next day. I just popped them in the toaster oven for a few minutes and they were good as new.
The rest of my day was spent writing thank you cards, watching the flyers and doing some crafting. I think I'm beginning to reach my diy quota haha. 34 days til the big day!!
