Week In Review

Last week was a series of unfortunate events that I can only laugh at.  Maybe you need a laugh today too?

On Monday I was strolling through the parking lot at work.  Sun shining, wind blowing annnnd a damn bee flew in my hair!  If you know me at all you this causes an immediate panic attack.  I have no idea who saw the show in the parking lot but I was not convinced it was out until I got back inside to check the situation out.  I looked like I had been attacked by something.  Completely disheveled.  I know I looked like a fool running around swinging my head like a crazy person but I can’t help it LOL.

On Tuesday I slammed my finger between two 45lb plates.  I don’t mean “nicked” it either.  I honestly wanted to cry and go home and say lots of bad words all at once.  It turned purple and my worst fear is it would turn black and my nail would fall off but it appears to be healing quite nicely.

I’m itching to go to the beach.  Random interruption here.

On Saturday I cleaned out my fridge woohoo!  Except that wasn’t exactly the plan.  I went to put my creamer back in the fridge and tipped it so I could squeeze it into it’s cozy little spot behind a few things.  Only problem was the top wasn’t on.  Poured cream all over the fridge, which promptly leaked all over the floor.  Womp womp.

I then went and watched grown men in banana hammocks get oiled up and make funny faces on stage–a/k/a attended a bodybuilding show.  I also got to hang with a dear friend I don’t see often enough ❤

I had grand plans for Cinco de Mayo that never came to fruitation.

Sunday was rough.  Anxiety ridden.  Unfortunately I worry a lot and sometimes can't get out of my own head.  My son said I needed a drink.  Or some Ben & Jerry's LOL.  He keeps me sane.  I'm better today.  Quite frankly I'm having one of those days where I feel full of "piss n vinegar" as my Grandma would say.  Like it's 2PM and I wish I could be at the gym killin' it.  By 5 I'll feel like death.

I did make some damn good zucchini muffins for a friend at work.  I also bought M&Ms for my boss and didn't eat them before I got here today!  #winning

Pumpkin Apple Muffins

mufI guess you could call these Apple Pumpkin muffins. I can’t decide if they are more apple…or pumpkin. Either way, they are pretty tasty and full of good for you stuff! They even got rave reviews over at my local MaxMuscle!

I added a little MaxPro Elite Pumpkin Spice protein.  Not too much as I was worried they would be dry and no body likes a dry muffin—MOIST is what we want 😀  But I did want to give them a bit of a protein boost.

Let me know if you try them (or any variation–you could leave the protein out if you want) and be sure to #consistentfitnesslife on Instagram<<that’s me come give me a follow!

Makes 12

40g Oat Flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)

24g coconut flour (I use Let’s Do Organic)

110g Truvia baking blend (Truvia)

21g Organic chia seeds (Chia seeds)

6 tbsp. Muscle Egg Pumpkin Spice liquid egg whites (you could use regular)

212g pure pumpkin (I use good ole Libby’s–not pie filling)

1/2 cup unsweetened cashew milk (any milk would work)

1 medium apple, chopped

1 serving MaxPro Elite Pumpkin Spice protein

Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately then combine and bake!  Mine made 12 and I baked for about 18min. @375.

P.S. I was supposed to remember to include measurements other than grams for those of you who don’t use grams or don’t weigh (it is the most accurate way but not everyone tracks macros or has a food scale).  I forgot–I’m sorry–next time!
