Rise and Shine

Happy Sunday Morning! Last night hubby and I were treated to at least 15 different fireworks displays that we could see from our balcony. It was really pretty, I can't believe how many separate fireworks shows there are!

I decided yesterday that vitatops are NOT a good breakfast, or even a part of a breakfast. They are a sometimes treat to add to a meal with good amounts of protein. I spent the entire day STAAAAARRRRVVVIIIING. (you can start feeling bad for my hubby now) Dinner finally did the trick, but I believe a day not started right is difficult to stay on track.

I have to be better at breakfast. So, I decided to make a green monster. It was a toss up between the green monster and a Mix 1, but Mix 1s are very transportable, while green monsters are less so. So, my green monster won. Today's mix included:

  • one and a half handfuls of spinach
  • handful of frozen mango
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 4 T flax
  • 2 T chia seeds
  • 458 calories, 73 carbs, 23g fiber, 21 g protein
Oh boy, that is a lot of calories. This should hold me for a good long while. Looking at the nutritionals, I think I went a little overboard on the fiber and need to beef up the protein. I don't want to get dependant on protein powders. Any ideas?

I did add a straw to the mix today and I am drinking much more slowly.
In the background you can see The Tour de France! Huzzah! This is such a fun time of the year.

Today's schedule is pretty open. I have a few things I want to work on around the house and I need to do my circuit training. Why do weekends go by so fast!
