Safari Planet

Wow so much has happened the past few days! Wednesday night when we got home from work, we found two baby birds in the hanging basket.

And a TURTLE digging a whole in the garden! She laid some eggs and went on her merry way. I hope they don't get eaten by rats or dogs or raccoons. That will be SO neat to have baby turtles hatching!

For dinner I grilled up my jerk-seasoned pork tenderloins & they came out absolutely perfect!

Thursday I made a very solid breakfast because I was in court & knew I wouldn't be able to eat for awhile. I had some puffed brown rice cereal with a banana and soy milk. A shake with orange juice, protein powder, frozen berries, grass clippings and flax seed. Very satisfying!

I brought along some of my red tea, I think having a variety of tea available is really helping me get over my coffee addiction.

During a break in court I had an apple and had my snack of pumpkin seeds & carrots when I got home (and a slice of pork) :)

I laid out in the sun for about a half hour, then we went grocery shopping (got two bags of spinach--plenty for green monsters!) and I headed to crossfit (went on Tuesday also, but I forgot to mention it here). So we did four rounds of:

5 burpees

10 shoulder presses

15 overhead squats

20 overhead walking lunges

I started out with 15lbs (for the press & walking lunge) then went down to 12, then 10. Used a 12lb bar for the squats. My shoulders were still pretty sore from Tuesday night's workout! I finished in 16 minutes. Dinner was uneventful and I forgot to take a picture b/c I was starving: two fried (in olive oil) eggs and some chicken-veggie-barley soup.

This morning I woke up with enough time to make my breakfast and lunch before leaving for work. I had a green monster with spinach, banana, soy milk, ice, vanilla, cinnamon, flax meal, almond meal and grass clippings. Lunch is a spinach salad with TONS of veggies & sautéed shrimp. Here's the veggie part--I'll sauté the shrimp when I go home.

I've got some green tea with lemon here at the office and I'll have an apple and some sunflower seeds this afternoon. Dinner will be the chicken-barley soup, I'll be sure to post a picture later. :)
