It’s Friday! Woo hoo! I hope your day was fantastic and that your weekend is off to an even more fantastic start. It is absolutely gorgeous outside and I’m feeling so grateful for this summer-like weather!
Every time I walk into the gym, I can’t help but smile. Yes, I look forward to my morning workout, but there’s something else that brings a goofy grin to my face. Without fail, I can guarantee that Boy Meets World will be playing on the TV above the cardio machines. My favorite part of this scenario is the fact that no one ever changes the TV station. I mean, who doesn’t love that show? This means that Boy Meets World kind of unites all of us early morning gym-goers in a small way! Did I take that too far? Don’t care.
Yup – gets me every time. Who else misses TGIF?!
Anywho, back to the workout! Today, I completed the Throwback Thursday challenge for the Tone It Up Bikini Series: the Bikini Strap Workout! This circuit fit in perfectly with my planned Friday workout because today is chest day. Love that workout! After some iron pumping, I cooled down with some light cardio on the arc trainer. Forty minutes later, I was ready to take on the day!
Matty and I were hard at work today, filming the vlog for you all afternoon. Actually, it was mostly Matty – he’s the former film studies major. When we finished, we sat down to enjoy some lunch. He made himself a naan pizza while I put together a mish-mosh of things that turned out amazingly well.
Don’t you love when that happens?
To make the above dish, I put some frozen broccoli florets into a skillet with olive oil cooking spray, garlic powder, and curry powder. I stir fried the broccoli for about 6 minutes, removed it from the heat, and mixed it with some shredded carrots, 1/3 avocado, and about 1/2 cup organic tofu. I topped it with a delicious and easy dressing made with 1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast and 2 Tbsp. Annie’s Organic Papaya Poppyseed dressing. Not bad for a last minute meal, huh?

So, let’s do it! Let’s talk about what protein is, why I consume protein powder, and – most importantly – how to make chocolate protein pudding oats (aka the best breakfast ever).
