Who Else Is Watching The Biggest Loser Season Finale!?

Anybody else out there watching The Biggest Loser Season Finale!?  I’m so excited!!!  I’m allowing it to tape for a bit before I start watching so I don’t have to watch as many commercials.  Until I hit play, let’s chat about food and fitness from the day.


I started my day with a Van’s frozen waffle, Chobani apricot 2% Greek yogurt and mixed berries.

My first snack of the day was an apple with 2 teaspoons of peanut butter

For lunch I went with a strawberry banana Shakeology made with 1 frozen banana, 1 1/2 cups water, 2 teaspoons of peanut butter and 1 strawberry packet of Shakeology.

My second snack of the day was one of my absolute favorites…a peanut butter and jelly Larabar!

Then, after my workout I munched on carrots and hummus…

…before digging into dinner which was leftovers from yesterday – whole wheat pasta, grilled chicken, broccoli and pasta sauce with some shredded mozzarella cheese.

I also enjoyed a glass of red wine with dinner.  It was a good day for food!  I’ll have some kind of dessert later on…probably a rice cake with peanut butter and some chocolate chips :)


Today’s workout was simple and effective.  I went with Upper Fix from the 21 Day Fix.
