Game on!

I'm pretty excited about Amy's 15 Week Challenge. It also happens to coincide with round deux of boot camp. I'm gonna kick some serious ass this summer!

I must admit there were some super cherry nibs that found their way into my shopping basket yesterday. Thankfully (or maybe not) they are gone now. May they rest in peace.

Food today looked like this (sorry, no real photos, I'm just not that organized):

Breakfast (05:30) Green monster: frozen banana, four strawberries, fresh pineapple, 1 cup Almond Breeze vanilla, protein powder and 2 (maybe 3) cups spinach.

Coffee (08:45) Grande non-fat, no foam, no water tazo chai and a cheddar sausage sammie from S'bucks

Lunch (11:30) Pork chop, grilled veggies and spuds, peas with hummus

Dinner (18:30) Pork chop, grilled veggies and spuds, tzatziki

I love the green monster, but I was starving by coffee. I think I need to actually chew my breakfast. I'll definitely save the monster for a post-workout drink, though. The pork chops are from the current issue of Clean Eating magazine. Yummy. I didn't reserve any of the marinade for the peaches and I should have. Live and learn. Lynn made them the other day, too and liked 'em.

Veggies and spuds were marinaded in Epicure Greek salad dressing (made with lemon juice instead of red wine vinegar) and then grilled on the BBQ. Mmmmm...good!

Not sure what's on for tomorrow. I work from 6-2, but then I think we might head to the hills (I'm thinking Canmore) for the day and watch the fireworks there. Maybe I should run this idea by S. before I make these plans....hehehe. Family picnic this weekend with potluck lunch, but we're taking fruit and veggie trays. I stopped at Walmart last night and picked up a ball glove (I used to have one, not sure what happened to it or when I saw it last) and a ball (super cute, it's pink and says "Girls Rule") along with a football and a volleyball. I figure they may come in handy for avoiding those know the ones...we all have at least one in the family!

Anywhoo, it's gorgeous here, so I'm grabbing my book and heading to the patio. Happy Canada Day, eh?

I'm looking forward to the challenge too! Except these first few days all I've done is eat my face off since I've been on vacation. Oh well, back on track tomorrow!!!

Book and a patio sounds divine!

I may have to go to the same thing.
