If you haven’t seen my bridal eating and sweating plan, check it out here before going any further. To continue the #tfgbridalplan series, I present you with a few breakfast and/or snack ideas.
This particular bowl was enjoyed as a breakfast. Plain non-fat Fagé Greek yogurt, drizzle of honey, fresh strawberrries and Kind granola. Strawberry season is finally here. Favorite time of year!
Enjoyed while watching the live streaming of the George W. Bush library dedication at my alma mater, Southern Methodist University. It was such a moving dedication, with all 5 living presidents and first ladies up on stage at my school. So cool.
Next up is a snack idea. Can be breakfast too. During my bridal plan, I’ve tried to reach for something healthier than tortilla chips + salsa or trail mix or just…chocolate. To tide me over until dinner (and to avoid overeating at dinner), I whipped up a little strawberry banana protein smoothie.
(Balancing on my tiny little balcony)
Into the Vitamix went:
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 scoop Juice Plus vanilla Complete (plant based protein powder)
Coconut water (enough to get things moving)
Smoothies have been my go-to snack and breakfast for the past few weeks…and I almost always include a few handfuls of kale/spinach. But I wanted something pink this time
As far as my bridal plan goes, let me tell you I have not been perfect. I had Chick fil A for lunch yesterday and pizza the night before. As I’ve said before, it’s all about the balance. Eat an awesome salad, drink a green smoothie and stay healthy when you can. Sometimes a Friday night just calls for a pepperoni pizza and I have to be ok with that.
Workouts this week went as follows:
Monday: ran 4 miles, walked 1
Tuesday: in-home dance workout (YouTube–thanks for the idea, Steph) + upper arm free weight workout
Wednesday: 1 hour vinyasa yoga
Friday: 1 hour vinyasa yoga
Saturday: 1 hour brisk walk
This week I will be aiming to go to yoga more often, but I am leaving first thing Friday morning for my Bachelorette party! Can’t wait! Stay tuned for more meal ideas sticking with my #tfgbridalplan!
