Saturday’s Workout

At my gym, February is partner month . So I really should have expected the partner based workout we did. It was crazy! We did squats while holding our partners legs up while they were in handstands and partner push ups with claps in between! I will post the whole routine later today

Treat Yo’self (right) Friday

Who loves Steel Cut Oats? This girl right here. Call me crazy but I prefer this chewy textured grain to regular bleached Quaker oatmeal any day. I have been super into healthy breakfast parfaits lately because they allow you to combine some stellar ingredients into a pretty little meal in a glass that makes me feel like I am indulging in a 5 Star breakfast treat. Yum. 

Todays parfait is a little carb crazy but they are good carbs and I needed something to fill up on before my shift at the Family restaurant later.( I am trying to cut out snacking!) Plus, I feel like sometimes, eating good carbs in the morning makes me very aware of what I eat for the rest of the day. For example, today I will probably only eat hard boiled egg whites, edamame, lean meats etc. because I need to get more protein and healthy fats. 

This pretty healthy parfait clocks in at around 400 calories, 3 grams of fat, 22 grams of protein, andddddd 75 carbs.

Say it with me people, CARBS ARE NOT THE DEVIL.

The devil looks more like a box of girl scout cookies or your tenth PBR later on tonight.
