I have been enjoying my time at home, without any stresses of school. And I’m not sure I want to go back now. HA. Kidding of course, but I am loving the break and time with family. I have been keeping busy with the planning of a special upcoming event. If you remember, I am now a licensed Herbalife nutrition distributor, and am hosting a New Years shake party in my hometown! We will be having free shake samples and a presentation of all the products to get the new year kicked off on a healthful note. I’m excited!
Otherwise, the days have been filled with fun shenanigans. I’m back to lifting it up at the gym and partaking in my favorite spin and yoga classes. The weather has been surprising warm lately, so Jaci and I have gotten to go on several walks. I have missed my time to my pup, that’s for sure! I have my heart set on adopting a dog from the shelter once I’m moved into my apartment, but I know I should really take things one step at a time. There’s just something about knowing you have a cute face to come home to…one of the things I missed most this past semester!
Pinterest hasn’t been making it any easier to say no, either…
I mean, come on!!! Who could resist?
New Find: Walmart has Starbucks k-cups!
I tried out the breakfast blend this morning and was a happy camper. Stevia + almond milk make the perfect cup of joe components.
I made a really good casserole last night. This one was with the help of Hungry Girl. I did a twist on her Mushroom, Spinach, and Mozzarella Supreme by adding in some protein and egg beaters to hold it all together:
Mushroom, Spinach, Mozzarella Supreme (adapted from Hungry Girl)
It came out soooo goooood! It makes big servings and is loaded with veggies. Feel free to go back for seconds…or thirds. 😉
with sweet potato, a winning meal.
A few other eats as of late:
egg white oatbran with sunflower seed butter and banana
greek yogurt mixed with peanut flour, stevia, kamut puffs, and defrosted berries
spaghetti squash with marinara, italian seasonings, and broiled tilapia
Make your own “go to meals”! This was fun to do and easy, too. I took Angela’s mac n cheese sauce recipe and mixed it with boiled diced chicken, whole wheat pasta, and steamed broccoli. Divided it up into servings and stuck them in the fridge for an instant meal. I will be doing this a lot during next semester when things start to get busy!
post workout snack: bread topped with protein frosting. mmmm!
eggs, couscous with cilantro, and balsamic roasted brussels
green monster protein smoothie with cereal
Question of the day is what pet kind of pet do you have?
You all have seen my little lover…
with *some* of her Christmas presents, spoiled puppy. 😉
Have a great day!
