Traveling and a Recipe

Hey guys! How are you doing? I'm traveling around Wisconsin over the next 3 days and missing my bed, routine, and pantry. For this trip I packed a couple of meals and snacks, but wasn't planning on 2 overnights, so I'll run out of food tomorrow. Here's what I brought with me:

  • Fresh cut veggies: Carrots, Yellow Pepper, Green Pepper
  • Hummus: Chili Pepper and Jalapeno Cilantro
  • Fruit: Strawberries and Pineapple
  • Salad: Topped with Mushrooms and Roasted Pork Loin
  • Shrimp Stir Fry
  • Muesli Bars
  • Protein Pancake

Now that I typed it all out it seems like so much! Which makes sense, because it took me an hour to prep everything last night.

I worked out this afternoon in the hotel gym where they had the COOLEST machines!! They were touch screen and had the TV playing in them. You could see everything all at once which made the elliptical easy for this ADD runner to do. Yes, I think I have ADD when running. If there's nothing to look at or distract myself I get bored and want to quit. What about you? Is the treadmill challenging for you too?


After I did a mile on the elliptical and 3 on the bike, I did the Tone It Up Thighs routine. Killer workout especially after doing a lot yesterday! I'm not letting my itchy eyes keep me down :)

Heating up dinner in the lobby!

And, it would be mean of me to leave you without this amazing tropical cake recipe...so here you go!

  1. I have such bad ADD when running! I don't know how some people run without music or any distractions!

    That cake looks SO good. I've been trying to decide if I want to bite the bullet and buy the PerfectFit protein or not. Do you think it's worth it?
