PB is the bottom of my food guide pyramid.

Whenever I make a grilled pb and banana sandwich I always get sad because I never put enough pb on because it always goozes off onto the George Foreman grill and then i end up regretting my choice of grilling it.

Today I thought through the problem and realized that I could just have an extra side of it and dip until my heart was content.  Once that scoop was gone I just started dipping the sandwich straight into the jar.

I love my hearty honey whole wheat bread from Costco.  Dense bread is my favorite.  If I can see through the piece of bread because there are little wholes I know I won't like it.....gotta be thick.

Even though I am not a mother yet I still got a mother's day flower from my niece.  I think she is trying to manipulate me into taking her for DONUTS again.

P.S. I was not trying to go for the "I dipped that front chunk of bangs into a vat of butter" look, it just happens normal.

WARNING WARNING= Do not look at my feet.  I no longer have any excuses of running or doing anything physically demanding on them anymore and just have to shrug my shoulders and say that is how I was born.

Dinner was amazing and we had bbg beef on rolls with beans, salad and fruit.

I think this was the boys' way of making room in their stomachs for dessert.

IMG 5945

Dessert was the highlight of the day.  Mer (my g-ma) brought Reese's pb cup ice cream treats.  I don't think I will ever go back to any other type of ice cream bar after trying this.

Let's make a bet and see if I actually get up for my spin and abs class......Billy is trying to tempt me into watching a movie and it is already 9:14 p.m. (okay, it was my idea).

Check back later today at about four (Utah time) for a CRAZY AWESOME GIVEAWAY!!! I think you might die a little when you see it:)  It may rhyme with booze and go on your feet and make you run incredibly fast.   I may even throw in an autographed picture of Billy because I am feeling extra generous.

Do you eat more or less on your rest days?

-Even though I am doing very light exercise because of my stress fracture, on the days that my excercise is walking from my bed to the couch I probably eat about double as the days I workout.  I am okay with it though because my doctor said that having three helpings of brownies goes straight to the bones to make them whole and peanut butter makes the best glue ever.

FAVORITE THING TO DIP?!?!

-LOVE dipping anything and everything in fresh guacamole.  I really think I could live off of that stuff.

What is your Monday workout?  Do you feel like you have more or less energy to workout on Monday's?

-I LOVE Monday morning workouts because I have so much pent up energy inside of me ready to GO and my body feels rested and on top of the world!

hmm I never thought of what I eat on rest days? I've always kind of just...ate.

Today I'm swimming and doing chest and back! Woot!!!

Dip..I don't really dip. I know I'm weird.

Happy Monday!

I always have that problem too when the pb goozes (is that a word? haha) out. A side of pb is a must!

reese pb cup dessert .. YUM

I LOVE pb and banana sandwiches (ok I just love pb and anything) and have yet to try them grilled---I need to try that ASAP!

I would say I eat equally on my rest days as I do on my workout days, I just always like to eat alot!

I love dipping in quacamole too, hummus, salsa, and pb are a few of my other favs.

Monday is an easy xt day for me during my training right now because its easier for me to get runs in on the weekend. It will be especially easy today because my legs are SO sore from my 10-mile run, bodyrock workout, 4 mile run, and 3.6 mile hike this weekend. I don't even want to stand up today. lol

Have a Happy Monday! :)

Monday is normally a cardio day but I have a final so my motivation to exercise is pretty low.
I eat a lot of food no matter what. I do feel justified on the days when I have a great workout though.
Guacamole is amazing and goes with just about everything. I'm secretly happy that my kids don't like avacado because it means I don't have to share (pretend you didn't read that Rylee). I'm jealous of my SoCal relatives who have avacado trees in their backyards.

I usually do my long runs on Sunday, so Monday is a rest day! It works out well since I can barely muster the energy to go to work after a weekend. I try to eat less on my rest days since my brain keeps telling me I'm lazy but that usually just ends in mass consumption of some guilty pleasure. Last night it was brownies. Dammit. And dipping depends on what is being dipped. Peanut butter is great for so much, including last nights brownies. Otherwise, french onion or dill dip is great for almost everything else!

Yoga is my Monday workout after Sunday's logn run! I also tend to be more hungry on my rest days - weird?!

My Monday workout was spin class this morning. I was DYING during the class, but now I'm at work and feeling fabulous. (Yes, I read blogs at work.)

I think I just eat a lot all the time.. I tend to see an appetite increase on weight lifting days though.

 
At May 9, 2011 at 7:18 AM , Blogger Nina said...

Why don't you toast the bread in the toaster then slather it in PB and bananas once it pops up? That's what I do. The PB still gets all melty and it's amazing.

What time in Chicago is 4pm Utah time?! Guess I'll check back at 1 and 2 and 3 to find out!

I always eat more on my rest days... which I consider to be fueling up for my next workout, lol.

I totally eat more on rest days too! My appetite catches up to me, and I use it to my advantage to pre-fuel for tough workouts that zap my appetite on other days... I love dipping in salsa, guac, PB, and dijon honey mustard. Today my workout will be 8 miles in my favorite park once I drive back home, cant wait! Have a great day!

It's beautiful outside in Boston and hopefully I get to run or ride a bike today.

I like dipping veges in hummus.

Peanut butter is the best dip! Second would be nutella, but that stuff is too addicting.

Btw, I'd never heard of Reese's PB ice cream before, but I think I need to go find some NOW.

I definitely eat less on rest days. During workout days, my appetite is crazy, and I really can't stop eating.

So, if you want an amazing grilled PB sandwhich you HAVE to go to PB Loco! There's one in the Mall of America, and one somewhere else but I'm not sure where... but t hey are so amazing! They have tons of different flavors of peanut butter and they put tons of different things on them like pretzels, marshmallow cream, chocolate chips, honey, jelly... etc. etc. etc. So good!

Apparently I'm part of the norm...I also eat more (and often less healthy) on off days. Probably not necessarily a good thing, but its sort of a physical and mental break from thinking about fueling my workouts...I can't eat a cheeseburger and go for a run an hour later...so rest days=cheeseburger days. make sense haha?

I eat WAAY more on my rest days!! Like today's a rest day cos I'm sick, and even though all I can stomach is toast and oatmeal I'm having enough of it to feed an army:)

Dipping finger into nut butter jar. Or face into a chocolate fondue.

Well ,after taking a few days off running, well more than a few, I am eating way more. Maybe it is because I'm making more time for eating. I usually take Mondays off but today I might try some Jillian if my pelvic area is feeling better. Happy day to you Janae!! You're looking gorgeous and glowing!

I have got to try your pb and bannana sandwhich. My mouth waters a litte every time I see a picture.

I eat like a horse that hasn't been fed in 3 years on my rest days. oops! Seriously I eat so much more when I'm not working out. It's like all of my energy must be channeled toward eating or something. ha!

I can dip just about anything in ranch! Got called into work early so Monday workout got cut short. :(

It is HOT and HUMID here in Dallas, TX.

Sweat dripping into my eyeballs and my lungs feeling like they are going to implode because the air is so thick.

But now that the torture is over I'm super proud that I did it!! I am getting too comfy in my long slow distances!

Oh, and I love to dip stuff into Nutella!!

PB and B sanwiches are my absolute favorite!!! I bring them to work all the time and people tell me to grow up but I swear it will never stop as ling as I live.

I probably eat the same on both workout days and rest days. I do have days that I overeat but I don't really plan it. I just let myself go wild like once a week!

I also love tortilla chips and guacamole. I also love dipping apple and celery in PB. And grilled cheese into ketchp! YUM!

I woke up at 45:30am and went for a 9.5km run and I plan on trying to fit in another 30 minutes or so of exercise after work before I have to head to job #2! Maybe some plyometrics or skipping!

You have the best posts. I look forward to checking your blog every day. You definitely put a smile on my face :)

Do you eat more or less on your rest days?

-I usually eat a TON of food when I'm not working out, and barely eat anything when I run in the morning or the evening?

FAVORITE THING TO DIP?!?!

-peanut butter or ranch

What is your Monday workout? Do you feel like you have more or less energy to workout on Monday's?

-Today I ran one mile because my hips were sore and my knee started to hurt. I always feel so tired on Mondays throughout the whole day.

That PB sandwich looks amazing! I don't have a forman grill, but I am thinking I might try that in a skillet on the stove grilled cheese (or should I say grilled pb) style.

You talk about fear foods in one of your posts, and I must admit I still have trouble getting over some of mine, but PB was a big success, once I finally let myself eat it again, I fell in love!

I like Monday workouts in general because I usually take Sunday as a rest day and carb out, so Monday's I am so energized I could run forever! This Monday comes after a 200 mile, 12 teammember relay, so I am a bit sore and not on my Monday workout game...

Can't wait to see the giveaway!

I definitely eat more on rest days.,,,,much bigger appetite. Plus, mentally it is fun to just eat what I crave instead of wondering how it is going to sit or fuel the workout. On my day off, there was a bag of cheetos that disappeared.

As far as PB goes, is it weird that I have a spoon that sits on top the the jar? Maybe not weird.....but gross.

 
At May 9, 2011 at 8:30 PM , Blogger Lizzi said...

I actually noticed that I seem to eat MORE on my rest days. Probably out of boredom ahhaha. pretty much if i'm not working out, i'm eating, so i guess it makes sense.

I am a condiment FREAK - NOTHING DIPPABLE is not safe with me. I like anything dipped in any or all of the following: ketchup, gravy, mustard, mayo, chutney/relish (any sort), sour cream, guac, peanut butter, jam/honey/nutella (on savoury stuff especially! chips and fries and cheese dipped in any of the above is the best). Basically if it can be used as a dip, it will!

Monday is already long gone for me here. My Monday workout was a spin class + a lil elliptical. I don't really notice a difference in energy levels on Mondays. Tuesdays are nearly always rest days for me so i think knowing that TOMORROW I CAN BE LAZY! really helps me get through and push myself.

 
At May 9, 2011 at 8:52 PM , Blogger LaLo said...

Rest days…definitely eat more. I also think it's because I am not keeping busy or as active as when I workout.

Favorite to dip:
Ketchup or guacamole! LOVE hungry girl's recipe for guacamole! I just make it extra spicy. =p

I love my workouts on monday IF I pre-planned them. I don't know why but I don't have to plan any other day except Monday. =p lol

P.S. You remind me of my twin…SUPER CRAZY!!!! haha I love it! The faces and hyperness.
