Yay it’s Wednesday! As the weeks go by I get more, and more excited for Tax season to be OVER. Ugh, 10 more weeks til I get my baby back. I think this season is the worst because I am home allll day, alone…by muhself. With only the cats to talk to. Um, no…I mean…I don’t talk to my cats… :S hehe.
So after a bingy, bingy Sunday I finally feel like I am back on track. I understand that Sunday is my rest day…but I gotta get a handle on my late night snacks on Saturday night…The Amazing Jeff and I usually stay up super late on Saturday. Because that is the only night we can until said tax season is ova! So then around midnight or so I am starrrrving, and so I eat. Two weekends ago is was way too much pasta. Boo. Last weekend I chose cereal. Not too bad but it was still more in the realm of a “meal” calorie wise and not a snack. I classify a Meal as 300 or more calories. A snack is under 200…but I like the number 100 better. And like magic…EAS Lean 15 strolled into my life.
Mmm, protein. It makes me happy. Num.
Speaking of protein!
Almond Butter Protein Balls
Eas® Lean 15™ – Protein Powder; Chocolate Fudge, 2 scoops powder
Honey, 4 Tbsp
Almond Butter – Creamy, 1/3 cup
Chia Seed, 1 Tbsp
Raw Whole Flaxseeds, 3 tbsp
Dark Chocolate Chips, 3 tbsp (14 grams)
Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl
Stir well, consistency should be like play-dough…ish.
Roll into 15-17 balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Put in fridge to set, I am letting these sit overnight. Makes 15-17 balls (Mine made 17). 1 Per serving: 77 calories, 8 carbs, 5 fat, 3 protein.
I think next time I will go with the mini milk chocolate chips. I think the regular size ones are too big. Also, I thin I might do some rolled in chopped almonds too, for some ca-runch. I so cannot wait to sink my teeth into these babies!
Tomorrow (Friday EVE!), my sis-in-law and nephew Justin, and baby niece Rihanna will be up here in the Twin Cites for a school event for Justin! I am super excited to see some family, and get some baby time.
I have to say…what a difference a day makes!!!! I was crab-apples on Monday. Seriously. For seriously real. For sereal. And today I am hap, hap, happy.
I had thought that a certain endevor was what I wanted to do. But it isn’t. I can see already, without even really getting involved that this is not for me. I see poor attitudes, and hurting, not helping. I am mad that I made the investment without really thinking about what I was getting into. I did my due diligence in researching and getting rep (current & former), and customer reviews. I thought I was making a good decision. But clearly I am not. Oh well, live and learn right?
BUT…I did figure out what I wanna be when I grow up! I wanna be a Toys’R’Us kid…wait no…that’s not right.
I am however, not revealing it just yet. I have a lot of work to do before I can make it a reality. It involves going back to school, and in order to do that I must have some more moo-lah. Or win the lottery…or at the casino next weekend!! TAJ and I are doing our “fun” Valentine’s Date Night at Treasure Island on the 18th. A Jujitsu classmate of TAJ’s is fighting at the Island! I am super excited to go to a fight where we have actual seats. Fingers crossed I win upwards of 5 grand…eek.
How awesome is protein? Have you figured out what you wanna be when you grow up?
