By the time we were married I'd gotten down to 135lbs and felt great. I don't really consider myself to be in a 'maintenance' mode. I honestly don't want to necessarily lose weight. I want to get stronger. I want my muscles stronger for lifting and running. I want my mind stronger for learning. I try hard to keep my nutrition in line because I straight up feel better when I eat better. I know that the number hasn't really changed on the scale over the last 2.5 years but I see the differences, I feel the differences in my performance.
So yeah, that was one big useless tangent. LOL. I guess it was just a recap of where I am today...
For breakfast this morning I had a big Green Monster. Same ingredients as yesterday. I have a small sample of PB2, how should I use it? I was thinking in a Green Monster, or maybe mixed with some greek yogurt and puffins? Any ideas?
For my snack I had greek yogurt, pb puffins, kashi heart to heart, and strawberries.
For my lunch I am going to eat leftovers of the delicious cheesy chicken shells from last night.
I have an amazing workout planned for after work, I wrote it all out even! Here it is, obvi weights could change.

I almost forgot! I have a couple of new songs on my little iPod Shuffle too, I love when a new song comes on. Here are my new faves:
- El Gitano Del Amor by Latin Soul Syndicate
- Love, Sex, and Magic by Ciara (feat. Justin Timberlake - yum)
- Whatcha Think About That by The Pussycat Dolls (feat. Missy Elliott)
Okay I'm going to go make my lunch in a few! Have a good afternoon all!
