I mentioned a few weeks ago that I signed up for the latest Tone It Up challenge and while I’m not following the plan exactly, I’m trying to focus on lots of protein, veggies, & fruit! Here’s what a day of Tone It Up Meals looks like!
When we woke up Sunday morning, I made a giant pot of coffee and made a breakfast that could keep me going for a few hours. We had a long weekend (with Monday off for MLK day) so we wanted to tackle some house projects. But before any house projects could be done, breakfast was served.
Greek yogurt, frozen blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and cherries, with a sprinkle of Love Grown Granola. Nothing new here. Even though the weather has been pretty cold, I haven’t strayed from my chilly breakfasts.
After breakfast, we picked up some paint samples from Sherwin Williams, just before I headed to gymnastics. After a sweaty workout that involved lots of trampoline activity, I headed home to grab some lunch and start painting.
I had some leftover vegetarian chili in the fridge so I heated this up and had it with a few crackers. Once I was finished, the work started. We painted nearly all of the upstairs hallway before taking a break for church. Once we got home from church, we finished up with a second coat of paint. The hallway turned out a little more purple than I was hoping but I think it’ll be a nice pop of color. Let me know if you want to see pictures and I’ll do a house update post!
Once we finished, Alex cleaned up some of the paint supplies while I made dinner. I made a twist on this Mexican Quinoa Bake, but I used the last remains of the vegetarian chili as the beans. Since I had already made the quinoa in my rice cooker, this recipe was a snap!
After dinner we watched part of a movie while relaxing on the couch. It was nice knowing we could sleep in a bit the next morning, before painting the next room!
While we watched a movie, I had a little Halo Top. I’ll use an old picture, since at this point, I dropped my camera on the floor and my lens was in pieces. (Somehow, I managed to put it back together!)
Overall, I followed the Tone It Up meal plan pretty well, with a little wiggle room in there.
