As I mentioned on Monday, I’m trying to (mostly) follow the Tone It Up 7 Day Slim Down plan this week. It’s really just lots of fruit, veggies, and protein and less bread-y carbs & sugar. It’s also encouraging me to move more which has been pretty easy since the weather has warmed up! Take a walk? Yes please!

Sunday morning I woke up and had a big bowl of yogurt with blueberries and strawberries. (I skipped my usual granola on top.)

greek yogurt breakfast

After breakfast and a little New York Times browsing, I headed to gymnastics. (You can see video evidence here.)


It was fun hanging out with my friends while getting in some exercise. I was definitely sore on Monday.

I came home and thought I’d be starving afterwards but I wasn’t hungry yet so Alex and I took a walk around the neighborhood instead. I love walking weather! (I think it’s because I like exercising but I also really like talking. So walking + talking is basically my favorite.) Poor Alex has a lifetime of walks ahead of him. If you live near me, we should take some walks together.

Once we got back I started getting hungry so I made a quick salad.

mixed green salad with strawberries

This was mixed greens with strawberries, almonds, and balsamic vinegar. I love this combo- sweet, tangy, and crunchy! I knew I needed more protein though, especially after an intense workout, so I also made a smoothie.

banana smoothie

Ice, almond milk, banana, peanut butter, and vanilla protein powder. I used to eat smoothies all the time for breakfast but now they’ve become more of a midday snack. This combination is my favorite!

I started making some nut”meat”balls before church so when we got back, I just popped them in the oven.

zucchini noodles and vegetarian meatballs

We had zucchini noodles and faux meatballs for dinner. I was actually surprised how full I was! I’m trying not to snack after dinner and luckily I was so full that it wasn’t an issue. (You know what else helps? Crest Whitestrips. For real. Good luck snacking when you’ve got those on.)

I kind of like that the Tone It Up plan focus on lots of veggies + protein but I’ll definitely go back to eating some real pasta and bread on Sunday! Still, it forces me to be a little more creative with my meals!
