Hey girls! How’s Saturday going? Hope it’s an awesome one!
Mine has been splendid so far! I haven’t mentioned this before, but I’m having a huge End of the Year Bash at my house tonight. We have a pool and it’s always so much fun! We did a party last year as well. I am very excited! My parents are grilling hamburgers and hot dogs, there’s also pretzels, candy, and big bowl of fruit. Ice cream sandwiches for dessert 🙂 It totally feels like summer! I don’t know what the eats will look like tonight. But I’m sure they’ll be healthy, delightful, and tasty. This is actually going to be a very sad party at the end because lots of people in my class will be transferring to new schools next year. 😦 So sad, but thank goodness for other means of communication. (Texting anyone?) Hehe. Anyways, to wrap it all up, this is why I’m posting right now. Probs will be able to comment though. The party is supposed to be over around 9:30, but you know how it is.
Today’s Eats have been freaking INCREDIBLE!
I woke up early and couldn’t fall back asleep (HATE THAT!), so I just decided to go with it. I’d been planning this breakfast ever since the grocery store and woke up craving it! It did not dissapoint at all!I had two Kashi GoLean Waffles (blueberry kind), topped with a container of blueberry Oikos, some fresh blueberries, and a half, sliced, banana. WOWOWOWOWOWOW! I totally understand that whole Oikos obsession. Loved it! Possibly better than Chobs. (Did I really just say that?) This breakfast was out of this world delicious. Enjoyed every single bite. After finishing, I grabbed a hanful of almonds for some fat. Beside the amazing taste, this breakfast also held me over for 4 hours! (technically 6 –but I was very, very hungry by the time I had time to make lunch! Note: I took wayyyy too many pics of this yummy breakfast, or wait, is there such thing as too many? 😉
I spent the morning cleaning like crazy and then hit up the gym. While there I did 45 minutes on the elliptical, followed by 100 crunches on the exercise ball, and 60 (one each leg) Bent Leg Raises (with no weight). I finished with lots of stretching and foam roller. Lovely 🙂 Cardio days are very enjoyable!
I got home around 1:15 and sat down to start the cd burning process. I got one burned, but then ruined by writing on the wrong side so the later tracks wouldn’t play. 😳 That’s so me. So I burned a new one, and while it was burning, took a shower. Here’s a new conditioner I got yesterday. Love it! It smells incredible.
(Whoops–accidentally hit full I think…)
Lunch was promptly after. I decided on having a salad. I took 1 whole wheat pita and warmed it up in the microwave. I then made my salad of baby spinach leaves, grilled chicken, chickpeas, walnuts, blueberries, and blue cheese (could have gone without). I then topped off my salad with a huge scoop of hummus. Yummmyyy! I also had an organic fuji apple. Very filling and tasty lunch!
I would like to speak briefly about something that Meg adressed in a post yesterday, and I thought I should share. Someone had asked her how many calories she aims to take in. While I have not been asked this yet, I would just like to set the record straight that this is not all I eat in a day. I don’t post every single bite I eat. There’s often times I’ll snag a few almonds, a spoonful of something, etc etc when I walk by. I also rarely post all my snacks. This brings me to another point–Everyone’s needs are different. There are no two people who have the same needs and requirements. I have found what my body likes and thrives on. I am finally at a place where calories don’t matter and my body knows when it’s hungry or when it’s not. I enjoy food! I eat healthy and delicious foods to keep my body in tip top shape.
Important Message: Everyone’s needs are different.
Well ladies! I’m OFF! Off to hopefully take a much needed nap and then PaRtAy.
Have an EXTRAORDINARY rest of the day loves!
