A Bottomless Pit!

That’s what I felt like today, I wanted to eat everything in sight! I am not sure if it was because of my intense boot camp this morning or if it’s because mother nature is coming to visit? I am also working at a desk now, which I am not used to so it is super easy to snack!! I even caved in and bought a bag of peanut M&M’s from the vending machine :) Oh well they were yummy, I did share.

Tonight Hubby and I checked out a new restaurant that just opened around the corner, called Waba Grill.

They are a franchise so they have them everywhere :)  I was super excited because I love having healthy choices to eat when going out to dinner. I chose the Salmon Brown Rice Bowl. It looked amazing and was super cheap!

It was wonderful, the Salmon was the perfect texture and grilled to perfection. I loved the rice too, it was sticky my fave! I would have liked some more veggies, so next time I will have to add some.

After dinner I went to my pilates class with my boot camp ladies and then on a 3 mile run. When I got home I was starving again!!! I decided to make a protein shake to shut the monster up! I used 1/2 a packet of Jay Robb. Whey Chocolate Protein, 1 banana,1 cup almond milk, and a spoonful of PB.

The perfect dessert/snack!

I am super tired and have a ton to do. Hubby did laundry so I have to put it away, make lunch,clean up kitchen, finish Featured Fridge post!! Hope to get into bed at a decent hour :)

Nite Nite!

I felt the same today - and mother nature is visiting as well. Dang those hormones!

That grill looks awesome! I love health conscious places like that! I'm definitely looking it up to see if there's one around me.

Hi Bobbi, do you blend the Jay Robb protein powder? I tried that and it just creates soooo much foam! Do you have that experience with the protein powder??

Waba grill looks so good! I love salmon and that rice bowl looks really tasty.

I was starving yesterday, too! I don't know why but it was crazy.

I have increased my activity level a lot lately because I have finally fully recovered from a knee injury. And I am also just a very active person at heart. This means running in the morning, working out over lunch and after work at times 9 holes of golf or something of the likes.

I have noticed that my body is physically exhausted at times. Literally does not want to move anymore. Does this happen to you? I try to fuel myself all day and eat snacks, so I don't think it is a food thing. I think it is that I played too hard.:) Do you have any secrets to avoid this feeling of exhaustion because you do SO much!

Happiness Awaits

Love the new job locale!! I was in a comm service organization called Troy Camp in college- we take about 150 kids from diff LA schools to camp in the mountains for a week and then do activities throughout the year with them, and they couldn't normally afford ANY of it! I loved it sooo much- point of the story, our site used to be Idyllwild Pines, but I think this year they switched to Forest Home! I've heard so many good things!

Mmm that place looks good! Was it expensive?
