No Music? It’s All Good!

Evening all!

This is going to be a quick blog post since 24 starts in 25 mins and it’s the last episode ever of Jack. Must. Be. Fast.

This morning I opened my jar of Prairie Natural Protein Powder.

Lean Whey. Ingredients list was great too. Low in calories and high in protein.

Breakfast was a Coconut Banana Protein Green Smoothie.

In the blender: 2 handfuls of organic spinach, 1 banana, 1/2 cup of coconut milk, 1/2 cup of UVAB, 1 tbsp of coconut. I like it green.

Then I headed for the gym. Once I got to the gym I realized I forgot water bottle at home. Once I stepped on the treadmill I found out that my ipod was dead as well. Crap! I am not good without my ipod. I figured I’d do a quick 5 min warm up on the treadmill then do a quick weight session.

After my warm-up I did another week 3 of Winter Warm Up by Gina. You can check out my previous workout here. My only change was: Oblique Crunch with Dumbell – 15lbs.

After my weight sess I decided to do a 10 min run. 1 min run at 5.2, 1 min run at 6.0. It felt great! I rocked my workout!

When I go home I made a bagel sandwich with sliced Turkey, organic spinach and mozza.

With a side of organic baby tomatoes.

And a large bottle of water.

After lunch I did a little blogging and reading before I decided to go for a short 3.5 km walk. While walking I stopped at the grocery store and at booster juice to pick up a Pineapple Freeze.

Dinner tonight I adapted from Diana. I used her Easy Chicken Penne Arrabiata with Mozza and Basil.

Mine used the following ingredients:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 box of penne
  • 15 mozza balls (I made from grated mozza)
  • 1 jar of tomato sauce (I used a presidents choice 3 cheese pasta sauce)
  • 2 handful of baby tomatoes
  • red pepper flakes
  • basil (I couldn’t find fresh so I had to use the spice instead)

First I cut the chicken breast and cook them with a few red pepper flakes.

As well I cut the tomatoes in half.

May 022

And I grated some mozza and rolled them into 15 balls.

May 023

While boiling the pasta I heated up the pasta sauce.

May 024

I added some more red pepper flakes and the tomatoes.

May 025

Then I added the chicken…

May 026

And mixed it in…

May 027

Finally I added the mozza balls and covered it with a lid for about 5 mins – until the cheese is melted. Then I sprinkled a few flakes of basil on top.

May 028

Delish! Dinner is served (with a piece of cheese bread I picked up from the bakery this afternoon – unpictured).

Dinner was awesome! Thanks Diana!

Now I’m going to watch 24 with the hubby and maybe finish Lost from last night. Night!

Katie, this looks delicious! And well done at the gym! Did you finish LOST? I am still trying to wrap my brain around it. Hope you're having a great week. :)

Hey Katie,

Where did you find that Prairie Natural Lean Whey? GNC? Walmart sold an organic whey for a while but they've gone to that crap with all the filler in it.

I would love to get my hands on that stuff.

You can @ me on Twitter (that_angela), if you like.

Nice job with the workout and all of your food. Those tomatoes are gorgeous with how red they are. I especially love that pasta dish, I always love a good pasta with cheese :)
