PB2


Have you seen this?  I found out about in through the blog world and ordered it on iHerb.  It is powdered peanut butter.  Never heard of it before but I had to check it out.

So what I did was made Homemade Honey Cinnamon Peanut Butter.  I combined 2 Tbsp PB2, 1 1/2 Tbsp almon milk, 1/2 teaspoon honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon.  It is wonderful but it has about 1/3 the calories as regular peanut butter.  Who knew?  The plus with the PB2 is that you can make it as thick or as thin as you want it.  I’m thinking it would be great thin as a syrup for pancakes.  Defintely going to have to try that next.

I put the PB2 on top of some overnight oats that I made up last night before bed.  I put together:

  • 1/3 cup oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup vanilla Chobani yogurt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 tsp chia seeds and
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

I must admit this hit the spot this morning.

So we were short at work so I got off an hour early because I ended up working through my lunch hour. So I headed home and knew I had to get my bootcamp workout in for the day because we had plans for this evening.  So it was 50 minutes of cardio so I jumped on the treadmill with the tv on:

Yep, I watched basketball while on the treadmill.  The Boys State Basketball Tournament is going on for the high school and the private school in town was playing in the semi-finals.  They ended up winning in OT.  It is amazing how fast 50 minutes goes on a treadmill when you are watching a close game.

I must admit I am loving this bootcamp.  This is the farthest I have ever went on the treadmill.  No, I am not the fastest runner and yes I did some walking but I went 3.713 miles in 50 minutes.  That is the farthest I have ever run.  I am thinking doing a 5K this spring is very doable.  I am so excited.

So the thing we had planned for tonight:

Yep, Chickie had a volleyball game tonight.  She hasn’t mastered the overhand serve yet but we are working on it.  They won the game tonight.  They are starting to get better with volleying so hopefully that will come.  She loves the game and it is fun to see her progress every week.

Now I am off to catch some Iowa State Basketball at the Big 12 Tournament.  Catch you tomorrow.
