HELLO LOVES. Today was a glorious day. No, the weather wasn’t very good ( a.k.a torrential down pours all day) and no, I didn’t win a million dollars ( boo-hoo). BUT I did have a day off and I used it to my advantage 😉
Before we go on to my Friday lets rewind to Thursday.
The workout: 50 mins elliptical, 10 mins bike, then abs 😉 it was a good one
I HIGHLY recommend trying this combo!!
FIESTA SALAD recipe:
- lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, cucumber ( or any salad veggies)
- 5 crushed tortilla chips
- 3 tablespoons ( or so) of pineapple salsa
- 1/2 cup of chick peas
- 3-5 shrimp (cut up)
- balsamic or italian dressing to taste
I woke to find my new article up on RODALE.COM. Then, came downstairs and watched the TODAY SHOW! ( obsessed but can only watch it on Friday’s 😦 sigh)
I made my VERY first..S.I.A.B: 1/2 a frozen banana, frozen pomegranate and acai berries, 1 container of plain greek yogurt, 1 tsp of vanilla, 2 tbsp of oats, and ice
this newbie needs help: How can I make my smoothie’s consistency less “icey and chunky” and more smooth ?? Anything besides xanthan gum?
During the day today I did tons of ACTIVITIES!! ( in Step Brothers style)
I went to the gym and did: a simple 45 on the elliptical QUITE intense..if i do say so myself. I usually just stick to elliptical, bike, and spinning class for my workouts. I realized why never get bored: I always switch up music and resistance each time 🙂
Dinner was different than my usual combos (FINALLY haha)
Dessert: (not shown) white chocolate and chocolate pudding with cool whip and crushed pretzles….. PLEASE TRY THIS COMBO! haha it’s amazing
My summer’s been treating me REALLY well so far. Mainly because I’ve been RELAXING and doing what I want to do with my free time. At school this past year I spent so much of my time stressing out (ALOT) and dealing with some tough stuff. I’m happy to say that I’m finally feeling the way your SUPPOSED to feel on summer vacation. STRESS FREE! I’ll have plenty of time to stress in 2ish months when it’s back to UDEL I go 😉
Hows summer been for you???
peace, love, and hapiness
