Tempeh Sloppy Joe

Before I even begin, I want to apologize for not commenting on you blogs! I have been reading but you can only imagine how hard it is to leave a comment when two of your keys are not working! damn you G and H! Damn you…

Besides my laptop being a brat, things have been going great on this end!

Eats and Workouts

Ayer for Breakfast I made myself Banana Pancakes with Chocolate Chips and topped with PB & Co. Smooth Operator and Light Syrup


For Lunch I had a Green Monster with 2 scoops of Chocolate LMM, Spinach, 1/2 a Banana, Water, and Splenda


I then did some shopping with mi familia and on the list were sneakers! First off I have a pet peeve with Sports Authority! Don’t tell me that I should buy protection for my sneakers when I first got them and promise me that I can get a brand new pair, if they break down.

I was so mad ayer! I went to exchange them, only to find out that they changed their policy and I have to mail my sneakers back, then get a gift card, THEN I can use it to buy my new sneakers! F*cking A! Thankfully the manager let me put a pair on hold until I get my stupid gift card in the mail. Damn you Sports Authority…damn you…

I still needed to get another pair for cross training AKA Turbo Fire but I refuse to give them any more business so I went to Macy’s since I had a Gift Card and got these babies! Nike Trainer Essential.


Last night for din din I decided to try a new recipe…Tempeh Sloppy Joe!


First I sautéed the Tempeh and chopped Onions in a little bit of Oil (until brown)


I then tossed in a can of Manwich Sauce

I paired the the Tempeh Sloppy Joe with Mashed Potatoes (1 small potato, FF Milk, Salt, and Light I can’t Believe it’s not Butter)

And 2% Sharp Cheddar Cheese


Comfort food done right!


This was delish but next time I will add some BBQ Sauce to the mix and less Manwich Sauce.


This morning I put on my new sneakers and did Turbo Fire HIIT 20! I am seriously loving these workouts! I love that I can do 20 minutes and be a sweaty beast! I also did 10 minutes of the stretch class.

After my workout I refueled with Oikos Honey Yogurt, PB & Co Smooth Operator and sliced Strawberries.


With my usual Cafe con Leche


So I know it is important to know the right people and sometimes even more important to know people in high places but I think it is better to know the people in your local supermarket (and be NICE to them) so when you make a request; they actually listen to you! Last week I asked the produce manager to order Caramel Oikos and he promised that he would and HE DID!


Which I am enjoying right now with lunch!


Tip of the day; be nice to everyone you cross paths with!
