Chicken Nugs

Good morning!! Sorry I was MIA last night but I was at Bunco! I got home kinda late and was tired so I just went straight to bed :) I forgot to take pictures last night of my dinner because I was too busy playing and talking! Sorry guys! I will tell you, I didn’t do so well on portion control for one main reason: Chik-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets, or Nugs as I usually refer to them! I haven’t had Chik-Fil-A in FOREVER, and someone brought a big party tray of Nugs and I just kept eating them! They were oh so good! Guess I got my Chik-Fil-A fix for awhile!! I also ate a lot of fruit off a fruit tray, some chips and salsa, and a cupcake! Sounds like a well rounded meal right?! Haha.

But anyway, I had a great time! I miss all my friends and Coworkers from the PICU! I did win something last night! I won the second highest Big Buncos! I had 3!! I won a pack of pretty little notepads and a $10 Subway giftcard that I’m giving the fiance, because he loves Subway!!


I have an insurance person coming out today to “check” everything out. Not really sure what that entails, but hopefully it’s a good thing! I will keep y’all updated!! Fingers Crossed!!


I woke up this morning at 5am and started my morning off with another awesome Circuit Training Workout!! This one was more tailored to legs and abs since my arms are STILL sore from Wednesday’s Arm Circuit!!

Abs and Legs Circuit #1

  • Run 0.5 miles 6.2mph
  • Lunges with bicep curls 5 lbs 10 each leg
  • Plank 60 secs with arms extended
  • Side Plank with twists (arms extended) 15 each side
  • Curtsey Lunges 10 each leg
  • Run 0.5 miles 6.3mph
  • Pile Squats 2X15 reps holding 2 5lb dumbbells
  • Bicycle crunches 2X25
  • Reverse crunches 2X20
  • Plank ups 10 each arm
  • Squats 2X20
  • Run 0.5 miles 6.4mph
  • Total: 30 minutes 1.5 miles

I really liked this one too! I was trying not to run too hard since this is supposed to be a cross training/non running day! I just can’t help it, running makes me feel like I’m getting the best workout!!

Question: Would y’all add these circuit training runs to your total weekly mileage? I'm not sure if I should or not since it’s not a continuous run, more like short bursts.

After my workout it was breakfast time!! I am really trying to work on portion control so I measured everything out this morning!!


The usual Banana Oatmeal base with 1 TBSP nonfat plain Greek yogurt, ~1 TBSP Dark Chocolate Dreams PB(I was scraping the last bit out of the jar so I don’t think it was quite 1 TBSP), and 1 tsp flax. Yum!! I really love how creamy a little bit of nonfat plain yogurt makes it!!


And of course, coffee with a splash of Almond Breeze!


And this little gem will be coming to class with me as a potential snack! I am hoping my oatmeal holds my hunger off until lunch,but it kinda depends how late we get out of class and when I get home to eat lunch! We shall see!!

What is your favorite on the go snack?? I am trying to eat more fruit as snacks instead of bars. I also like nuts and string cheese!!

Have a great Friday!!


  1. Oh chick-fil-a. I miss thee! I wish NYC has one.
    Nice work on your circuit training. Kind of crazy - in a good way! I like apples, oranges, trail mix/dried fruit and yogurt for my snacks.

  2. To me, running is running. I would definitely add it to my weekly mileage!!

    Favorite snack...clementines and oatmeal squares:)

  3. Wow that circuit looks TOUGH. Where did you find these circuit workouts or did you make them up?
