$2 Tuesday and the Voskos Winner

15 Jun

Tuesday 6/15/10- aka tie dye/ pig tail Tuesday at work 😉 

Hello Loves!

I am exhausted having worked the past three days from 8-4:30. I was so tired when I got home and my feet and back were killing me. Whit and I skipped our workout yesterday because we had too many things on the to-do list and once again were unbearably tired. We thought about skipping it again, but you cannot skip your workout every single time you are tired. So we popped in 30 day shred and did a quickie 25 min. workout. I was glad I at least did something in the end. Some movement is better than none! How do you deal with exhaustion and working out?

Right now I am watching the Princess Diaries on Disney channel. Man I love the Disney Channel! I am practically a senior and nothing stops me from watching it haha 🙂



Well breakfast was as promised: Protein Pancakes
Carob Chip Goji Pancakes!

Our breakfast cookie was so good that we had to give pancakes a try with carob chips and goji berries.


Serves 1:

  • 3/4 cup Egg whites
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned/rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp sugar substitute or 1 pkt (we used 1 pkt of nunaturals stevia)
  • Lots of Cinnamon
  • 1 tbs. goji berries
  • 1 tbs. carob chips
  • Cooking oil spray


-pb+plain greek yogurt
-coconut kefir icing


 This mornings words of wisdom from my cup of vanilla hazelnut yogi tea.


Todays lunch packed was a mixed greens salad, served alongside a Bora Bora bar, and some strawberries & cherries. 


Bora Bora sent us a variety of bars to sample, some coupons, tattoos, and some chapstick(which is some of the softest I have tried in a long time).

This company makes three kind of bars:


Whit and I each grabbed a bar out of the stash and split them at lunch. We picked these two…



**VERDICT: This one was my least favorite out of the two. It did not taste anything like coconut. It just tasted like hard rice krispies. The ingredient list however is very impressive!



**VERDICT: This bar actually did have lots of flavor and it was very soft. Now this is the kind of bar you want to eat. It had the perfect hint flavor of honey and was packed with plenty of nuts and seeds 🙂

Today was just madness! It was $2 Tuesday at Einstein’s. Everybody and their mom came in. Whit and I were both Barista’s today. I was running around like a mad women. And the worst thing was I left on the lid when I was brewing some coffee and it spilled out everywhere right during the rush! 


When we came home we both whipped up our own yogurt messes. This was mine.



After we finally got our work out over with then we had a sweet barley salad and a sweet potato.


The salad had barely, mixed greens, apples, cherries, raisins, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, and raspberry vinaigrette.

And the best part of the whole meal was this big guy. We  baked up a giant sweet potato and split it. We topped it with plain greek yogurt, pb, sugar-free syrup and cinnamon. 



And finally the one thing you all have been waiting for….
