Her Saturday: Rock Star Living!

Last night after a very stressful day at work I hit the gym at 6:30pm and did an easy 4 miles on the TM, RUNNING IS MY KIND OF THERAPY! It worked, helped me calm down and then after, I headed straight for coffee with one of my dearest friends Kelly. I love coffee/tea dates, I always feel refreshed and renewed after us girls share life together.


Miles: 4.2
Time: 35 minutes (treadmill)
Calories: 550
I also did many strides on the workout so I wouldn’t get bored!

I am starting to get used to the TM, but I am not in love with it.

Since we were at Starbucks and I was STARVING, I went with a whole wheat egg and turkey sandwich, it held me over until I got home and a small snack.


I had my first A&P lecture and lab this week, and it wasn’t that bad. I know there is a lot to be expected out of us, but school is so different now. I remember when I was working on my Under Grad I kind of just wanted to get it over with. Now that I am back I feel like a sponge just wanting more and more. A&P is not the most exciting class, but knowing that it’s a part of the journey to becoming an RD which makes me excited!!!



When I got home last night I found another package from Naturally Nutty  on our doorstep. Thanks Katie!!! I am so excited to try these wonderful NUT BUTTERS, look at these flavors!!!

I decided to try the Butter Toffee PB on my WAFFLES this morning.

I could really taste the yummy sweetness of the toffee!!! I can’t wait to try the others. I also tried a little taste all by itself and it was DELECIOUSE! It has a nice texture to it, not to runny nice and thick. A full review will becoming soon. food 008


Surprisingly this breakfast held me over all through the morning. After Lab I grabbed another Nature’s Path Granola bar to get me ready for my workout with Jillian. When I got home I threw the workout cloths on and did level two of Jillian’s 30 day shred. O MY she KICKED MY BUTT!!! I have never done walking pushups!!

Level 2 cardio includes:

  • high knees
  • squat thrusts with high or low intensity versions

This DVD is not for the faint hearted! This is for people that want to push themselves and workout hard. I know that everyone can do this but you have to WANT it! I am loving it! Sexy Six Pack here I come!

Afterward I made a fruity protein smoothie to hold me over until the cousins ROCKSTAR Birthday Party at 2pm. Hubby and I picked up these Yoplait Smoothie packets at Costco a few months back and now with my new Vita-Mix I had to try them.

These bags are great, you just add milk (soy in my case) and blend. I added some vanilla protein powder to the mix as well.

Well I am off to my second cousins Rock Star Party and then maybe Hubby and I will catch a movie( if I am lucky). Have a great weekend folks!!!!

I'm glad you're enjoying A&P. I had a hard time with it in high school, and that was the "lite" version obviously!

I can't believe anybody's workout could kick your butt, Bobbi! You're so fit and awesome already!

Denise said...

I agree with the learning stuff...studying for my personal training certification has actually been fun. I'm learning so much neat stuff!

greendogwine said...

Cant wait to hear more about that Vanilla almond butter!

That smoothie looks beautiful!

Running is my therapy too! Glad you had a good run followed by a nice coffee date!

jenngirl said...

I'm so jealous of your Naturally Nutty!!! YUM!

Enjoy your evening :)

Great waffles and smoothie! Have fun tonight!

Do you get to work with cadavers in your anatomy class? When I took anatomy for nursing school we learned on cadavers. It was really neat and being more of a visual learner, it was really helpful. Also made me appreciate how amazing our bodies really are!

just me said...

omg so jealous of your naturally nutty samples! i would love to score and sample some of those!!!

And that smoothie looks so good! I've been wanting a smoothie lately and now I def need to have one after seeing that!

Pearl said...

Wow yaaay on the A&P! And that smoothie is so bright!

RunToFinish said...

you are going to crack up, my post tomorrow is about naturally nutty. I am in love with it!

the shred is serious stuff!

Jill Will Run said...

Now I'm craving Butter Toffee Peanut Butter... without ever even trying it! It sounds delicious!

chasedaylight said...

That Vanilla Almond Butter looks DIVINE! I've never seen those smoothie packs! Looks wonderful and convenient!

Miss Medina said...

Ooooh I LOVE Jillian Michaels (that's who's DVD you're doing, right?) I bought her Wii Fit game (Fitness Ultimatum)and it kicks @$$!

Ok I have to tell you about a pet peeve of mine...people say this at school all the time and it drives me INSANE- "Undergrad" stands for "undergraduate" which is someone who is working on a degree below a master's. Thus you can not work on your undergrad...or (as all my school peers like to say) "do" your "undergrad" ("I did my undergrad at Whatever University"). You could have worked on your undergrad DEGREE or been an undergrad, but an undergrad is not something you can do lol. Yes, all that time on one teeny statement-but I'll bet you'll remember it forever and you'll notice now when you hear other people say it! :) That's right up there on my pet-peeve scale with "FreshmenS" (remember people said that in ASB? FreshMEN is plural for Freshman so you don't need an S on the end, people!!).

BTW, that smoothie mix looked AWESOME! I really need to try it. And what kind of waffles are you using? I bought some flaxseed to use on my oatmeal and I actually like it...adds a cool texture!

Cassandra said...

I am so excited to start my journey in school to become an RD I am jelous you are already in the mix! My first class id phsyc 1 I am really behind so I will have a long way until A&P! Nice work out you inspire me to get out and just do it!

Lance said...

Great workouts, Bobbi! And the waffles look fantastic - I want one (or three)!!

Andrea (Off Her Cork) said...

I love anatomy! :D I may still even have all my notes from HS. LOL

Ugh walking pushups! We have to do those in conditioning class. We do two kinds:

1. In your pushup position, one pushup, walk back. Pushup, walk right. Pushup, walk forward. Pushup, walk left. Pushup, walk back so that you make a box.

2. Standing up, forward bend till your hands touch the ground. Walk out your hands till you're in a pushup position, 5 pushups. Walk hands back till your standing up again. Repeat 5 times to get 25 pushups.

Glad school is going well. I think I am a better student now. I love all peanut butter. Can't wait to read your reviews of them all.
