Yep, that’s me! Last week, I signed up for my very first gym membership! This morning I put that membership to good use with 40 breezy minutes on the elliptical, while watching Freaky Friday. Ahh, Chad Michael Murray in his young days…good times, good times.
I am finding the whole gym atmosphere to be very motivating and positive for me. I think it will be great to have a place to go to just get away from everything and release some stress in a positive way. Perfect, no?
Plus, I am SUPER excited to try out some of the classes they have to offer.
Have you taken a gym class? Was it a good experience? Give me the details, peeps!
Before I left, I had this beauty:
The return of the breakfast cookie!
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/2 scoop protein powder
- 1/3 cup applesauce
- cinnamon + vanilla
Top with creamy PB and fresh blueberries. Chow down.
Lately, I’ve been all about warmth for my meals, especially breakfasts but I couldn’t resist this little gem when I woke up…and it actually hasn’t been too cold outside today. I better enjoy it while I can though, because wintry weather is supposed to hit us on Wednesday or Thursday! I am crossing my fingers for a very white Christmas. 🙂
I came home and made a simple lunchie:
What’s that under my egg-white puff?!?!
A SANDWICH THIN!!!!!
I have seen these numerous times all over bloggy land but could not for the life of me find them anywhere around here. Well a miracle happened last weekend and I found them! They are quite fantastic and definitely lived up to the hype. Two thumbs up from me. 😀
I had a juicy Harry and David pear with lunch that was awesome. Although I love all fruits, pears are definitely up there on the list. When they are good, they are GOOD.
For a snack this afternoon, I had this:
Chia puddin’ with fresh cut strawberries.
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 packet of Nunaturals stevia
Stir. wait 5 minutes. Stir. wait 5 minutes. Stir. and wait again. The longer they have to sit, the thicker they will be. You gotta try this ladies and gents.
Want to see my dinner from last night?
None other than, Meg’s orange cream salmon recipe! Check it. It’s delicious.
I had it along with some steamed cauliflower…with a side of terrible photography:
aka, green bean fries. 😉 Here’s to hope that new Canon i’ve been dreaming about is in my stocking this Friday.
Santa, if you’re reading this, I promise I’ve been good. Don’t listen to what anyone else has to say about this.
Now, if you can remember back to my last post (Yeah, it’s been a while..thank goodness it’s Christmas break now though!) I mentioned some Christmas shopping that I was planning on getting to. Well…yeah. That never happened. This girl had studying to do! So now that the stress and time-consumption of school is out of the way with for a while, I WILL be doing that Christmas shopping. TODAY. So with that being said, off the computer I go!
Is your Christmas shopping done? Or are you a procrastinator like me?
