Food and Fitness: September 15- 21

I’m still pretty consistent with my meals on the weekdays. On the weekends is where I always mix it up and tend to get a little off track. Thank goodness for High Carb day!! Once a week (for me it’s Friday), I switch up my macros and eat twice as much carbs as protein. This is the day that I will enjoy a splurge or two!  I enjoy having extra fruit, maybe some wine and a sensible dessert.

Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt
Inspired by Babble

1 cup nonfat Greek vanilla yogurt
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons stevia
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
½ sheet low fat graham cracker

Mix everything together in a large mixing bowl. Place the mix in an ice cream maker for a few minutes until smooth. Alternatively, place the bowl in the freezer and stir mixture every half hour until it reaches desired consistency. Top with crushed fat graham crackers.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake
Inspired by Dashing Dish

1 Cup Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1 scoop Protein powder (I use Cellucor Peanut Butter Marshmallow)
1 tbsp. Dark Coca Powder
1-4  tsp. Stevia
5-10 Ice cubes (depending on  desired consistency)
1/2-1 cup Water (according to desired consistency)

Place everything in the blender and blend away!

My fitness recaps are getting smaller. Mainly I attribute it to the amount of time I have been doing Insanity. It’s a 63 day program and the ability to commit to something consistently has always been hard for me. I am proudly on the last week and am READY to be done! These past few weeks it has have been hard to keep with starting back to work and switching up when I work out. I can’t say enough how excited I am to finish and move on to bigger and better workouts (Oh yea, more on the upcoming adventure next week!)
