Goodbye, Planet Fitness

Hi there! How are you doing today? We had a rest day today on the workout front – we’ve been hitting it pretty hard and just needed to take a break (I still did my morning sit ups, however).

We also said goodbye to Planet Fitness today – we cancelled our memberships because we’re at Verdure now, and we JUST ADORE IT. Yes, it’s a pricey place, but well worth it, and it’s located right next door to our apartment complex. They have an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub going in right now, so hopefully we’ll get to swim this summer!

Onto my tasty eats for the day! I thought I did pretty damn well with my food choices …


I wasn’t too hungry this morning, so I made an egg-y breakfast with salsa, some bacon and some fresh fruit with a sprinkle of sugar. Coffee to drink. This breakfast kept me satisfied and happy all morning despite being on the smaller side.


I roasted up some Brussels sprouts (gigantic ones!), broccoli, carrot, and zucchini with EVOO, Parmesan cheese, and S+P. I served them with a drizzle of ranch and added some hot and herb-y rotisserie chicken from United with some BBQ for dipping. This meal was VERY filling (and gave me some heartburn, so I took Tums and tried to ignore it) … I probably could have made a few less veggies, but hey, I’m a creature of habit, and when I make a batch of veggies, I made a big ol’ batch. Note to self: make less veg next time.


Around 3:30, I needed a snack, so I had an opal apple with Tajin Seasoning. I debated putting PB on it, but ultimately Tajin won out.I also had a Holy Kombucha Probiotic Tea in Raspberry Pomegranate (my new favorite kombucha and flavor … Mixed Berry is also tasty!).


I was truly uncertain about what to have for dinner tonight, y’all, as I just wasn’t terribly hungry. I roasted some chickpeas, mushrooms, broccoli, and cauliflower and topped them with some roasted red pepper sauce, just to see how they’d taste to me. I ate about 1/3 of the bowl, mainly the chickpeas and mushrooms, and then put the rest in the fridge for another time.

Then I made Moroccan Mint Tea and sipped on that for about an hour. To be honest, those veggies may have upset my tummy a bit as I became nauseous at one point. 😦

Around 7, I tried something simple – a Boar’s Head ham and cheese sandwich with honey mustard and dill pickles. This set well with my stomach, hooray!

Then, for dessert, I had a Brown Cow raspberry yogurt with protein granola.

Hope you’ve had a GREAT day!

Til soon,

~ Mandy
