Happy Friday morning everyone! Everyone looking forward to the weekend? Any exciting plans??
I thought I would post now before the day got too crazy and I ran out of time
I started my day off with one of my all-time favourite breakfasts: Strawberry Cheesecake Oats!
Strawberry Cheesecake Oats
1/4 cup steel cut oats (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
water (for cooking your oats!)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder, divided
1/2 cup cottage cheese
Cook your oats as directed on package. Add in a few cut up strawberries and half of a scoop of protein powder. Remove and pour cooked oats into bowl. Place remaining strawberries in pot and heat in a teenie weenie bit of water. Heat strawberries until you are able to mash up the strawberries (I couldn’t find a potato masher, so I just mashed the heated strawberries with a fork!) Pour strawberry sauce over oats. For the cheesecake topping, blend cottage cheese and remaining protein powder together in a Magic Bullet or another type of blender until all lumpies are gone from the cottage cheese. Top oats with cheesecake topping and additional fresh strawberries!
This recipe can be used with any fruit of your choice, but Mom and I bought strawberries yesterday and they looked so delectable I just had to make strawberry cheesecake oats this morning
A shoulder workout followed this scrumptious breakfast. My workout looked something like this:
|Overhead DB Press||4||8|
I am trying to make a new weekly training routine for myself for when school starts back up again, so I have been creating some great workouts lately. I think I may keep this one for my “back to school” workout routine
After my workout I gobbled down my post-workout meal. I take the “30 minute window” very seriously So unfortunately, I only have a picture of the empty Ziploc bag and Magic Bullet cup. Next time I will take a picture before my workout
I had a shake that tastes exactly like an iced cappuccino. It was incredibly amazing, so I think I should share the recipe!
Just Like an Iced Cappuccino Protein Shake
1 cup almond milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (chocolate would be great too!)
lots of ice (I think I used about 8 ice cubes)
Blend it all together and you have yourself the perfect homemade iced cap
I also had a banana sandwiched in between three rice cakes. I always look forward to my banana sandies after a hard workout
I realized once I was driving away from the gym that this was my last workout in Yorkton for a while; probably until Christmas or next summer. It then hit me that this was my last day in Yorkton until Thanksgiving. I’m going to miss home.
Although the gym is tiny compared to the one at UWO, I have grown to love it over the summer. It’s a gym where everyone knows your name and it just feels like home One time this summer, there were seven people at the gym all who were very close friends of mine. That will definitely not happen when I am back in London.
I need to take this precious thing to the vet for her check up now I always like to be the one to take her to the vet. She usually gets pretty scared and shakes the whole time. I feel like it is my job to comfort her
Have a great long weekend everyone! Let me know what you are up to and about all the adventures that take place I am sure camping will be great! I am praying for good weather It has snowed on us before, so let’s all cross our fingers for nice weather
Talk to you on Monday!
