What’s up loves? How’s your Monday treating you? Hopefully quite nicely
First off, some housekeeping business:
– Haven’t checked in on everyone’s progress for Complaint Free February in a while! How are you guys doing? Even with a week left, I still find myself struggling, but I’d wager to say the amount of complaints coming from me have decreased significantly!
– Zesty Cook is having a blog makeover giveaway. Go over and check it out if you have a minute.
I’ve had quite the busy Monday myself. Although my alarm went off at 4:45 to go to the gym, I made an executive decision that today was officially my rest day, and reset the alarm for 6:10. Muuuuch better:)
After getting ready and taking the puppy for a walk, I had a wondrous breakfast cookie before leaving for work:
Classic combo with a few addins: 1/3 c. oats, 1 T. chia seeds, 1 T. flaxmeal, 1 T. hemp powder, 1 packet stevia, 1 smashed ripe nanner, wee handful of raisins. About half way through eating, I also threw in a handful of raw pecans for some healthy fat
Instead of Monday it should have been called Meetingday at work. I usually have 1-2 meetings today to prep, go to, and make adjustments after, but today I had 4! It definitely made the day go by quickly, though
Needless to say, lunch was eaten at the desk so I could bang through some to-do’s:
The cafeteria has quite an impressive salad bar! And some how this lil’ guy jumped in at the end:
Mmm corn bread. I can never quite get down how to make decent cornbread at home, but whenever I buy it somewhere else, it’s always SO good. Perhaps because we don’t use the same amount of butter…ignorance is bliss! 😉
After work I came home, prepared some meat lasagna for the hubski and veggie lasagna for myself, then had him put it in the hot box, and I took off to train a new client at the gym!
On the way there, I sipped on a Green Monster:
The training session was a blast. My new client is a hoot! 😀 When I got home, I finally got to gorge on some veggie lasagna:
I used spelt noodles for this recipe. I wasn’t too sure how it’d turn out – I usually just use regular or whole wheat, but they turned out deliciously yummy. However, I totally forgot I was out of mozzarella in the middle of cooking, so instead I used goat cheese with the ricotta. It turned out really good though! The tanginess of the goat cheese balanced out the sweetness of the ricotta quite well 😀
Now I’m finally relaxing with the husband – we’re watching our latest obsession, 24. It’s pretty intense, I gotta say. Jack Bauer is one crazay mofo.
The winner of the giveaway for a Tupperware banana keeper and Brendan Brazier’s new book: THRIVE Fitness is Mo @ Mommy RD! Congrats, Mo! Send me your mailing information, and I’ll get your goodies and extras to ya asap.

Have a fabulous rest of your Monday night and an awesome Tuesday!
What’s something that no matter how many times you try, you just can’t make a version as good as the store/cafe/restaurant? I can’t, for the life of me, make good cornbread! It always comes out all dry and bland. Maybe I need to just stop trying to make it healthy, haha
