Body:
Went with my future SIL to the gym for aerobics class! I showed her the Shred moves I do for abs after.. we ended up burning 60% from fat while doing the Shred Moves!

Mind:
I did my functional food assignment on Vitalicious VitaBrownies as a means of iron supplementing ( they provide 50% of your daily value for iron)

I returned our 2nd HD/DVR reciever to FedEx- We came back from Nana’s and got engaged, and then realized our reciever was broke! They sent a new one wednesday but that one was broken too! Then they sent another new one saturday- so we were without TV all last week- but I was so incredibly busy anyone it wasn’t much of an issue.

I worked on our presentation for tomorrows’ Metabolism Class….

Soul:
Shopping! I bought Jeff 2 new pairs of athletic shorts ( He only had 2 to begin with and even those my mom and I bought him recently! Unfortunately, a branch tore through one pair while he was riding his mt. bike.) and I bought myself a new pair as well! I really need new running shorts that don’t bunch up!! These aren’t exactly running shorts but they have crazy pockets, are dry fit, they fit really great, and they were only $8!

Breakfast:
Smoothie: Soy protein, milk, mango, papaya
banana with pb on the side

I had gone to the grocery store this morning … here is most of what I got..

( I was excited about the soy milk AND the pineapple! )
I decided to cut up the pineapple immediately for snacking and for dinner and it turned into a battle. It was so juicy, the knife slipped. I walked away with a nasty cut on my thumb but …

1 serving of fruit , 2 servings of veggies

Snack:
Peanut Butter Gnu Bar
Cinnamon Almonds

Vitamin E, 8 g fiber!
The peanut butter GNU bar was definitely not my favorite. It wasn’t as “peanut buttery” as I thought it would be, so that was probably why I wasn’t thrilled about it. It was still tasty, but didn’t remind me of peanut butter.

Dinner:

I skewered some of the pineapple from earlier today and got some butterflied pork chops on sale. I marinated them in balsamic vinegar, white vinegar, some olive oil and some steak seasoning….

I tried to eat something a little more substantial for dessert ( the yogurt and the peanut butter) but the peep made it cute. I never had any easter candy this year so I picked these up on clearance today- my easter present was wayyy better than candy!

I am so jealous at the egg white cartons! Well, I ordered mine online yesterday, but it will take approximately a WEEK to arrive to the country. Grr EUROPE!
And I heart your lunch! Wraps are my favourite!

You gave me a great idea of grilling pineapples. Yeah, I agree with you on the PB GNU bar, not peanut buttery enough, so I add my own pb on it. =)

Haha, of course you prefer the proposal to Peeps… although they are a really nice Easter treat too 😉

I love your eating today…yummy and a calorie range I should be aiming for. Sorry about your finger, but I hope that pineapple was worth it! Usually it is…I just love it fresh like that!

Love the shred….the grilled pineapple and the rest of your meals look so good and healthy……I also thought the Peanut Butter Gnu Bar had little peanut butter taste, I checked the wrapper to make sure….what a steal with the $8 shorts!
