the challenge – day 3

kids were up early this morning!  but i wasn’t that tired.  probably because we haven’t been eating crap.


bfast: protein shake with almond milk and banana

snack: tuna salad

lunch: greek yogurt

dinner: Hawaiian chicken (chicken, pineapple, zucchini, bell pepper, onion)

dessert: paleo brownies

i made a large batch of tuna fish salad for our lunches the rest of the week and had to try some…then i ate a bunch. ha.  but it’s all good, right?  i wasn’t hungry for lunch so i just had a greek yogurt before laying down with the kids.  we were ALL tired by naptime.  dinner was so yummy.  and i have leftovers for today! yay!  the brownies were mainly for a valentine’s party i’m having today with my bible study but, honestly, i had a really hard day.  i could not do anything right.  i even broke my beloved Ninja food processor making those awesome brownies. so, no protein shakes or smoothies for awhile. 😦  anyway, i thought it would be a great reward for my hard day but i wasn’t that excited about them.  i did eat some but was too full to really enjoy it.  they are truly yummy, though.  i’m a brownie girl so i’m kind of picky.  these are amazing.  i never would have thought so.  and it makes so much! here is the recipe.  used 3/4 cup cocoa, 3/4 cup honey, and dark chocolate chips as substitues.

no workout today.  i really wanted to work on my push-ups.  my weakness is upper body strength.  good thing i didn’t because the WOD (workout of the day) at CrossFit has pull-ups.  my wish is coming true. 🙂
