PB2-Strawberry-Nana Smoothie & Pasta for Lunch

TGIF!!!!  Off to a great start today!  Had a great night sleep after my run last night and in order to avoid a repeat of yesterday's fiasco, I was up at 4:30 am ready to tackle my upper body weight training workout.  Something about getting up for a workout when everyone else is sleeping; feels very empowering to me!

I did  Insanity Upper Body Weight Training for my morning workout and made a PB2 Strawberry-Nana protein smoothie for b-fast!
Oh, so good!
In my smoothie:
2 tbsp. of PB2
2 tbsp. of Old Fashion Oats
1 cup of baby spinach
1 cup of Unsweetened Almond Breeze
1 Frozen banana
1 cup of fresh strawberries
1 pack of PerfectFit protein powder
1 cup of ice
5 drops of liquid vanilla stevia
1/2 cup of water
a pinch of cinnamon

For lunch I packed left-overs from last night's dinner: Namaste gluten free Pasta Pisavera!  This is one of the three packs Emily sent on my July FoodiePenpal box.
I just followed the directions on the package and ate as is....
I have not had pasta in a while, definitely a treat I don't mind repeating 2 days in a row!  Thanks Emily!
As for the rest of my day, I have an 8 hour work day and going out to dinner with the fam later.  I'm planning to hit the sack early tonight as I have an early wake up call tomorrow for a trip to Fairbanks with my birthday boy.  I can't believe my son turns 11 this weekend, time truly flies when you are having fun!

What are your plans for today?  Share them below!
