A Nonstop Saturday!

What should you NOT eat before you go to Bootcamp for the first time in two months?

3 Mini Pumpkin Poppers
(They are 1 PPV, but I called 3 of them 5 PPV)

You really should have a little protein before a workout, and halfway through Bootcamp, I felt light headed and a bit dizzy. I knew I should have had a Greek yogurt or eggs instead of my poppers, but man they tasted good!

Bootcamp felt great and it was good to be back!

When I got home I decided to try something I had found on Pinterest. I know.....surprise!

I like to microwave a chopped apple sprinkled with cinnamon and put it on top of my oatmeal.

When I found the recipe for Apple in a bag, I knew I had to try it!

Sliced apple, cinnamon, cornstarch, water, sweetener and a few raisins........

Put them all in a Ziplock Freezer bag, shake, vent and microwave for three minutes!


I poured the whole bag over my Oatmeal. I loved it!

Now that I had my energy back, I headed out to mow. Then I decided, after nearly losing an eye (twice), that I would take it upon myself to trim the tree branches in the backyard. I hope I don't get in trouble. You know there is a certain way to do that job? Then I had to cut UP everything I cut OFF! I earned some serious activity points today between Bootcamp, mowing the lawn, and the tree trimming I did. :)

Before tackling the next items on my Saturday "To Do List", I took a break and had some lunch.

1/2 piece of Tilapia, Tortilla Crusted
Mixed Greens, feta, vinaigrette

You gotta love leftovers.......don'tcha?

I tackled more Saturday chores, then I had some errands to run. I don't really CRAVE things often, but I could not get frozen yogurt off the brain! So I called a friend. Not to get my mind off of it, but TO GO WITH ME! :)

She did!

Chocolate Brownie and Peanut Butter topped with a few pieces of Reece's Peanut Butter Cup.

I was able to wrap up my chores and get ready for a night out with my hubby and friends.

We went to La Bodega to enjoy some Tapas and Sangria. I was reading the menu and its definition of Tapas. In the Spanish Culture, Tapas are a part of an evening out, going from place to place and enjoying a glass of wine with a small plate of food with just enough bites of something to keep you satiated while focusing on the people and the conversation.

That's exactly what we did!

White Sangria......I hadn't had it.....and I liked it! All 2 1/2 glasses!
12 PPV

I didn't take pictures, but I was able to find pictures online of the Tapas we chose.

Chicken and Chorizo Skewers........


Baked Goat Cheese in Tomato Sauce......(my favorite)

Refried Potatoes......(not a typo.....REFRIED POTATOES!)

Crepe with cheese.......

Everything was delicious, and we split them all four ways. They bring the Tapas one or two at a time to your table and I loved it. We always had a little bite of something on our plate. And the Sangria, of course.
I kind of picked things apart in my brain when I got home, and decided to give it a points value of........

13 PPV

I did a lot of moving today.

  1. Your Saturday sounds fun and busy, with some delicious food! I go out for yogurt once a week. I love it and knowing that my "yogurt day" is coming up really helps me with cravings. We havent been to a Tapas place yet but it is on our list for Date night..if that man ever heals up:( He needs to go back to work! Happy Monday!

  2. When DOES he go back?? I do hope he is better soon! For your sake. :)
