PB & J For Breakfast...Why Not?

And...it's Monday again-everyone's favorite day of the week! ;)

Actually, this week I didn't dread Monday at all, only because I was looking forward to my workout! This week I get to test my 3 rep maxes on push presses, bench press, squats and deadlifts.

Today was upper body strength and power day. I was able to get 120lbs for 3 reps on both push presses and close grip bench press, which I was happy with. I definitely feel that I have gotten stronger on this program, which is mostly what I'm focusing on right now. When this program is over I'm going to do a more hypertrophy focused phase for a couple of months just to change things up a little.

Well, this morning, I woke up looking forward to my usual protein oats for breakfast....only to find that we were OUT of oats! So... after going into freakout mode for about 10 seconds wondering what in the heck I was going to eat, I finally decided on just having a protein shake and toast with peanut butter. Which then gave me the idea of a having peanut butter and jelly sandwich(on Ezekiel bread with natural peanut butter and no sugar added jelly, of course)! Pb & J for breakfast-why not? Who know, it may just become a regular thing. ;)

My second freakout of the day came when I was going to make some eggs for lunch and remembered that we were out of eggs!!!! I mean, really? We did have some egg whites, but I NEVER eat just egg whites by themselves. Gag me. Well, thought I'd suck it up and give the egg whites a try and realized that with a bunch of cheese, some ground turkey, and a little salsa added in, they're not all that bad! Knowing how to improvise is a good thing. ;)

So, in other news....this weekend, all three members of the Cappotelli household went to bed with pizza bellies. That's right, I said all three....2 people and one very naughty dog! So after having to go out and buy a second pizza, that was our treat meal this week while watching my alma mater, the University of Louisville, play in the NCAA basketball championship. Go Cards! :)

Sunday night we went to watch a friend of my husband's wrestle his first wrestling match at Ohio Valley Wrestling, the place where my husband used to wrestle. It sure was weird being back there after 7 years! A lot of memories at that place! Then we watched "The Bible" Sunday night, which I look forward to every week! Is anyone else loving that show as much as me?

Today I just finished cooking up my food for the week-6 chicken breasts in the crockpot, 2 pounds of ground turkey, and cut up the broccoli. Now we're good to go for the next few days!


  1. What a cheeky dog you have! 120lbs for a push press is beastly. You are my inspiration!!

    1. He is SUCH a bad dog!! ;) Thanks, Tara!! I'm glad to hear that you are back in the gym!

  2. I love reading your blog ! Thanks for all the great post. I look forward to reading them;)

  3. Having a large dog in the house is always a challenge! We have food disappear on a regular basis too :(
    I have GOT to get on board with cooking in bulk for the week. I am really learning how important that is to staying on track. When I'm hungry and there is no healthy food waiting on me, it's usually bad news!

    1. Yup, it definitely makes things SO much easier!
