Less is MORE

27 04 2009

Hey ladies! Hope your Sundays were less stressful and more relaxing than mine!

Well, one positive of tonight is that I really am getting into my new exercise “regiment” (I feel weird saying that!) I’ve realized that every day when my body’s feeling it’s best I haven’t done more than an hour of exercise. Maybe I did 20 minutes stair master and some weights. I don’t need to do an hour and a half workout to feel like I’m doing something. I’m learning that it’s not how MUCH you do, but WHAT you do. Right now I am feeling really good πŸ™‚ I feel as though I’m exercising smarter. And that’s a great feeling!

After church I babysat two very sweet kids for around three hours. I made 30 dollars! I am exhausted though. I had fun though!

Enough CHIT CHAT, here are the eats!

Breakfast: Oatmeal–YUM! It was almost like dessert oatmeal with all the yummy things I put in it. Here’s what was in it:100_2830


  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup milk
  • a banana
  • brown sugar, spices
  • dark chocolate
  • butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 a kashi spiced pumpkin flax bar
  • skippy natural peanut butter

VERY YUMMY!100_2832



Lunch: (at the kids’ house) two slices of greek pizza–amazing, it has tons of spinach, onion, peppers, feta, and tomatoes–I also had a pecan square dessert like thing! It’s basically pecan pie in bar form. I ate about two thirds and enjoyed every bite πŸ™‚

Snack: Lunch kept me full for a while, so I had an apple when I got home before leaving for the gym100_2836

At the gym I did 10 miles biking (~30 minutes) after warming up then did leg work galore and ab work, plus tons of stretching and foam roller–felt very nice!

Dinner: An egg-sandwich with an apple with peanut butter–VERY delicious. I love eggs! ❀ 100_2838100_2839100_2837

Well, I’m off to comment the night away. I’m not letting myself get stressed out about the school situation. I worked for hours upon hours yesterday and I am gonna finish up studying later tonight before I fall asleep. I’m behind in my science class, but honestly, I don’t care. I prioritized what I NEEDED to get done. Okay, no stress, no stress, no stress. Bye girlies!

P.S I tried a new flavor of Chobani–blueberry! IT WAS SO GOOD! SCORE! ❀

I love your happy mug! I need something like that in the morning. You can’t help but smile looking at it (and also in it… what awesome breakfast/dessert oats!!!)

Your egg sandwhich looks sooo yummy. And that perfect dollop of peanut butter *sigh*. I think peanut butter is truly an attractive food.

I’m sorry to hear you are having some study stress. I feel like I’m constantly behind in everything, even though I work pretty hard. You just gotta keep going and don’t let the books get you down!

Have a great day πŸ™‚

Can’t wait to keep reading yours! Love,
