Yesterday was great!

OK well this was not fun but the rest was ?

I started the day with a trip to the lab to get blood taken for my next doctors appointment. I am actually pretty nervous about this one because I got married in July (woo hoo) then went on my honeymoon for 2 weeks. Lets just say things were crazy during this time and my blood sugars certainly reflected it.

After I was done having blood taken I drank my shake. I am used to eating breakfast around 7am so I was starving by the time I was done! I made a tiramisu protein shake which included this: Vanilla Protein /// 1 cup coffee /// 2TBSP Mascarpone cheese (120cals, 0carbs) /// 1/2tsp Rum extract /// 1/2tsp cinnamon /// Hemp seeds (25cals, 0carb) /// Bee pollen /// Heavy cream (50cals, 0carbs) and a blob of PB on the side.

Lunch – Avocado love <3 need I say more?

Brian and I are finally putting together a grown up bed! Meaning no more 10 year old queen sized mattress and target sheets lo.l We got a kind sized bed, a pillow top, high end sheets and comforter. For the mattress we decided to try Leesa – Its one of those new online brands that people rave about. You can’t try before you buy but according to reviews they are more comfortable than the ones in the store that cost thousands. They come in a tiny box and when you open it they expand. I can’t believe how small the box actually is – look at Robert Moses next to it! I am so excited to use it ? ?

Take a look at my outfit – I am wearing bell bottoms for the first time in YEARS and I love them! I got mine from Express. They run long but I still had to order them online in a long length.

Off to Volleyball – last game of the season

I had a Grey goose and club soda with a lime – my go-to low carb cocktail.

The only damper was a low blood sugar in the middle of the night which made me eat half a banana with about 8 HUGE spoonfuls of peanut butter. I hate middle of the night lows – they make me crazy ?

Other than that yesterday was great!

Have an awesomely fantastic day!

A Boat-Tastic Weekend!

I have to say I LOVED this past weekend!!

On Friday night we met up with our good friends for dinner. I had grey goose and seltzer as my cocktail. (or grey goose and vodka as I said on accident lol). For my appetizer I had steamed mussels and my entree was a bun free turkey burger with avocado, swiss and mushrooms. I am so mad I forgot to take pictures but I get this combo a lot so you will see a picture soon!

Saturday morning I got to work on a new pancake recipe. I went with a coconut flour recipe after last weeks wheat-free almond flour pancake bust

I got the recipe from a gym newsletter – you can find it here

As usual I weighed, measured and recorded everything ?

My plate looked like this: 2 whites, cheese, 1/3 Serving of coconut flour pancakes, 1TBSP Peanut Butter

These were goooooooood! Much better than last weeks recipe. I don’t know if they are my clear winner for pancakes but not too bad. They were a tiny bit dry – I am actually tossing around the idea of modifying them by taking out the honey and adding more coconut milk to make a sandwich wraps. We will see but I def say try these.

After this we hot the water! What an amazingly beautiful perfect day!

Later on we took our boat to a friends house

Sunday was the same day on repeat plus some added fuzz…
