Wiped Out!

We were able to take full advantage of the sunshine this morning with a 1 hour and 15 minute hike. It was hot out in the sun, but it felt good. I carried the baby on the way up (hellooo legs!) and hubby carried her on the way back down. I wish I had brought my camera with me – the views of Pikes Peak are amazing!

After our hike, I put together a quick lunch – turkey, spinach, and mustard on a whole wheat wrap with a little bowl of apple, kiwi, and blueberries with a splash of OJ. The orange juice was really a nice touch to my little fruit salad!

I had to run out to do a few errands and, since it was such a nice day, I thought a decaf iced Americano from Starbucks was in order. Refreshing! 🙂

I also picked up a Larabar since they were on sale for 99 cents. I had half of a banana bread bar (I always share with my husband). Oh my GOODNESS! Sooooo yummy! It really did taste like a piece of banana bread. I would definitely buy this again!

Other snacks this afternoon included a small banana, a little bowl of Fiber One with almond milk, and a few carrots with some hummus.

I was totally wiped out this afternoon from hiking in the heat. I really had no motivation to do the Shred. But then I remembered that I declared on my blog for the world (or the few of you who read this) to see that I was committed to doing 30 days in a row. So after a brief nap, I picked myself up off the couch and got down to business with Jillian Michaels.

After my workout, I put together a nice little dinner. I made a spinach salad with red onion, carrots, and tomatoes. I tried a new dressing tonight – Annie’s Tuscany Italian. It had a great taste to it. It’s pretty thick so you don’t need much. I poured just a little bit onto my salad and mixed it up to coat the spinach. Yum!

For the main course, I sprinkled some Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper on some chicken breasts and baked them in the oven. On the side I cooked a spaghetti squash and mixed in some tomato sauce. It hit the spot tonight!

I love spaghetti squash! It’s such a great alternative to heavy pasta. It’s also great on its own as a side dish. It’s so filling and is very low-cal – only 50 calories per cup!

Another work week coming up… Why is it that the weekends go by so much faster than the work weeks??

I participated in Megan’ssecret bloggie swap, so I’m looking forward to getting my bloggie package this week! What are you looking forward to this week??

  2. hi…your baked chicken looks great…what temp. do you cook it on in the oven, and for how long? do you flip it over? thanks! april

    • Hi April! I cook my chicken in a glass baking dish at 425 for about 35-40 minutes. Oven cooking temps and times vary though so definitely keep an eye on it while it’s cooking.

  3. I just realized you were in Colorado Springs – LOVE that area! So much natural beauty!! I need to try that Lara, I’ve heard only rave reviews about it 🙂
