These are a few of my favorite things

Okay, isn’t that a songย  from the sound of music? Or is it Mary Poppins? Props to whoever knows ๐Ÿ˜€

Well today was a really fun Saturday! Breakfast went un-pictured (sorry!) but was a delicious bowl of oat bran. After eating, I went to my school’s graduation. It was a LOT OF fun, but so sad to see the seniors go. I’ll miss them and thank goodness for web cams.

Upon arriving home, I made a tasty lunch! I had a peanut butter-banana sandwich. I mashed half a banana then put it on top of 1 tbsp. of both organic and skippy natural crunchy peanut butter. You know what comes next–the PANINI-ATOR. Yummm. I also had soy crisps and an apple. A delightful lunch ๐Ÿ™‚ 100_3725



After lunch, while my mom took a nap, I did 20 minutes of Core Yoga. This yoga is SO HARD. But I felt like feeling the burn so I totally loved it.

Before the gym, I grabbed a couple of dried prunes and a glass of milk for a little workout fuel. While there I did the following:

  • 3 minutes stationary bike warm up
  • 31 minutes biking (~10 miles)
  • Lots of Leg Work:
  • Hamstring: 5 sets of 10 (15 pounds)
  • Hip Adduction: 8 sets of 25 (70 pounds)
  • Hip Abduction: 8 sets of 25 (100/90 pounds)
  • Calves: 25, 20, 10 (70 pounds)
  • 100 crunches
  • stretching and foam roller

Fabulous workout.

Upon arriving home, I cleaned up the kitchen and had a little snack. I started with an apple and string cheese. A little while later, I ate a peanut butter kashi bar. Very crunchy and munchy, lol. 100_3733




My grandma, mom, and I went out for dinner at Pei Wei’s. I ordered the ginger broccoli with chicken and brown rice. It was delicious! Totally HOLY YUM worthy. I brought leftovers home and cannot wait to have them tomorrow for lunch.

After dinner, we all went shopping. I got lots of clothes for my class trip to DC (more on that tomorrow). After clothes shopping, we went to Wal Mart just cause ๐Ÿ™‚ And I found a product I had been wanting for forEVER………………………..

MIGHTY MAPLE PB & Comp. PEANUT BUTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like seriously freaked out. My heart stopped for a second! I immediately picked it up and brought this baby to a home where it will be very well loved (trust me!). After Wal Mart we stopped in at StarBucks and I got a grande skim Chai Tea. โค โค โค

These are a few of my favorite things ๐Ÿ˜€100_3744



By that time, I was flying high. But it was about to get better. We’re having a little party here tomorrow so my mom and I hit up Harris Teeter at 10:00 (hence the late post!). We usually don’t shop there (dedicated Lowes Foods shoppas) but I am in love with H.T. She made a mistake in taking me there ๐Ÿ˜‰ I was able to restrain myself–which was a huge accomplishment ๐Ÿ˜‰ There was almond butter and I also saw dates!!! H.T has lots of items that Lowes doesn’t have. I have GOTTA try those dates. Been seeing them everywhere! I left the store with a cherry pie larabar and some apples in tow.

Of course, I had to try some mighty maple. My verdict? PB & C. has done it again. and again. and again! Loved it–cannot wait to top oat-meal/bran with it.100_3752


Well, wow it’s late! I am so tired. Had to wake up around 7 for the graduation this morning. Goodnight ladies!

Hey if you’re blog is set up like Shelby’s or Jenny’s (to name a couple) then know that I am unable to comment right now on it. Hopefully I can get it all fixed but I’m trying my hardest to figure out the problem. It says “google is unidentified.” What the heck?? Any help would be much appreciated!

…Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
brown paper packages tied up with strings,
these are a few of my favorite things…

Ok, I’ll stop singing to you. I love that movie though!

Oh… I just realised Jess already said that it was from Sound of Music. LOL.

What excellent timing that you post about a delcious peanut butter-banana sandwich – as I purchased a sandwhich press today and will DEFINATELY be recreating this gem!

Great workout too!

Sound of Music…but I think a few others beat me to the punch ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Oh my gosh yesterday I totally went to the grocery store to pick up some mighty maple peanut butter (amongst other things), I go down the peanut butter aisle, look at the pb & co. area, and NO MIGHTY MAPLE to be found!! I had to settle with cinnamon raisin, while still very very yummy not as much so as mighty maple! haha.

Is that a bowl of PB?! I LOVE IT!! String cheese is so much fun to eat – please tell me you play with it like I do ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can’t help but twirl it around!

24 05 2009

MMmmmmm, I love it. That sandwich looks mighty scrumptious!

24 05 2009

Okay – I have to ask – how the heck did you LIVE without Mighty Maple?! After I tried it I asked myself the same thing ๐Ÿ˜› haha, it’s so damn tasty! Enjoy that stuff girl! Scrape that jar clean!

Aww I’m so sorry you had to say goodbye to all of the seniors – but hey, good things like Facebook and emails always letcha keep in touch ๐Ÿ˜‰ I bet they’ll miss you too. I’m glad you had a good time, though.

Your eats look wonderful (but of course my fave thing about em’ is the Mighty Maple in this post :P) I love those PB Kashi bars too!

Have a great evening.

Hey Jess! Thanks for commenting on my blog! Sounds like we definitely have a lot in common! Can’t wait to keep reading your blog… I added you to my blogroll and google reader! ๐Ÿ™‚

Grocery shopping trips are so much fun. You should definitely give dates a try… I just LOVE them plain, topped with almond butter, or chopped up in cereal or oatmeal. SO good! And I couldn’t agree with you more about Starbucks… YUM!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
