PB2 recipe and Working out in the HEAT!

ughhh the heat sucks!  It was 90 degrees out this morning at 4:30am...ick..sticky ick.  The heat just has me moving like a slug!  I did go to the gym again last night and worked out for hour---holy buckets that is two days in row making it to the gym....mind you I just walked uphill at 3.5 for an hour and today---SORE
brother
Sore from walking
pathetic
But it felt wonderful and both days I have worked out my hubby took johnny swimming(diving) and we all had a blast and slept like babies.
Thought I would see a jump in the scale--nope, but again I think I am riding out TOM right now.  I am going to continue on my good march which is eating better and WORKING OUT!  I did get my fill appointment for Tuesday July 3---kind of sucks before 4th of july to be on liquids/mushies but really I do not like the 4th of July in Phoenix....who wants to sit outside sweating at 9:00pm...it is not the same 4th of july I grew up with in Montana...after a day at the lake in MT we put our jeans and sweatshirts on to watch the fireworks from the lawn....not what we do in AZ.
I drove in this morning with my coffee(hubby gets me one from circle k every morning--he is so sweet considering I leave at 4:45am) and what did I do..dribble down my shirt...like my lip had a leak...in fact I touched my lip just to make sure ---nope just had a problem connecting lip to cup---ding dong.
So now I look like a schlep with brown stains down my light blue top...must stay at desk all day by myself.
The outlets by my house had a great sale so I bought johnny some stuff--love childrens place.  Polos and tshirts only $1.49 and I had a 20% coupon....can't beat those prices.  I think I got like 10 pair.  Johnny has a problem spilling things down the front of him so we go thru them(hmmm wonder where he gets that from)

and I will leave you with a great recipe--I made it tasted AWESOME and the family loved it(btw--I did not eat noodles, but I had veges and chicken with the sauce)!

THAI PB2  Noodles
Sauce:
1/2 c. low fat, low sodium chicken broth
1/3 c. PB2 powder
3 Tbs. teriyaki sauce
2 Tbs. brown sugar
1 Tbs. lime juice
1/8 - 1/4 tsp. red pepper

Noodles:
6 cups spaghetti noodles, cooked
3/4 c. chopped green onion
1 1/2 c. grated carrot
1 1/2 c. broccoli flowerets, cut into thin slices
1 c. snow peas
1/2 c. thinly sliced red cabbage
4 Tbs. dry roasted peanuts, chopped


In a large bowl, mix chicken broth, PB2, teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, lime juice, garlic powder and red pepper.  Place cooked noodles in the bowl with sauce and toss to coat noodles.  Remove noodles from bowl and place in a covered, oven safe dish in a warm oven.  Reserve sauce.
 
Pour remaining sauce, into a large skillet.  In the sauce, stir fry the onions, carrots, broccoli and snow peas for 1 to 2 minutes.  Add the red cabbage and stir fry another 1 to 2 minutes until vegetables are slightly tender.  Add vegetables and sauce to noodles and mix.  Garnish each serving with chopped peanuts


I add chicken or shrimp to this recipe

Man! I wish I lived near a real outlet mall. They call AZ Mills an outlet but it's not really. This heat is terrible...that's why I HAD to join a gym...there's no way I'm going out in it. I grew up in SC so my 4th of July's have always been warm but out here, they're almost unbearable. Luckily, the fireworks show by my house is viewable from a nearby golf course with ample parking. We only have to get there about a half hour early. :)

Those prices are awesome. I wish I could shop a sale like you... I need to buy my boys some clothes for school!

Great job getting the exercise in, lady. :)

I need to get up to the Anthem outlets soon and get Mac some stuff!! Great deals!! This heat is ridiculous..It's almost like I'm mad at it.. making me all sluggish and generally pissed!! I went to Yoga on Monday night and Pilates last night at the gym and sweat like a beast! You are totally dead on about the 4th here.. we usually go to our friends house and watch from their back yard or in their pool b/c the fireworks are literally right there in their back yard.. but since it's on a work night this year, not sure what to do!! Good job on the working out and don't be drinking coffee and driving!! you may have a hole in your lip!! :)

I know, I'm not excited about this 4th either. We're all set to have 100+ degree weather for the next 10 days. YIPPEEEEEEEE!!!! stupid weather.

PB2 + sugar free chocolate pudding = yum! I need to order some more of that stuff from Netrition. Can't beat the $5 flat shipping. I like the 1 lb bags they have. I got samples of that stuff when I was a few weeks pre-op, and fell IN LOVE. Then when I got stuck on peanut butter for the first time, I vowed to stick (bahaha, get it, stick?) with the powdered stuff.
