Heyyy! How’s everyone’s Mondays going? Hope all is fantastic!
Sorry for being like M.I.A yesterday, with the exception of some commenting. Yesterday was a good and bad day. Good: made my daddy breakfast (oatmeal pancakes, fresh sliced peaches, whip cream, real maple syrup, bacon) spent time with the boyfriend. Bad: had to say goodbye to the boyfriend for six days while he’s at a camp. No phones, which stinks. BUT, I did have a good day full of yummy eats! All that went photographed was an apple, and I apologize for that! I’ll tell you the eats regardless and you’ll just have to picture them for yourself in your head. 🙂
Fathers Day was wonderful. I adore my daddy and I look up to him. He’s the hardest working man I’ve ever met and always takes care of his family. He always knows when to give me hugs. I love how he’ll randomly ask if I want to go out for a latte (coffee for him, latte for me 😀 ) and look at books. I could go on and on about him. To sum it all up: I love you Dad!
Breakfast: 3 pancakes topped with fresh peaches, real maple syrup, a small slice of bacon. i also had another pancake topped with a lil bit of DCD. Couldn’t have pancakes without pb! I love my oatmeal pancakes! I got the recipe from my nutritionist I used to see 🙂 She was amazing…
Lunch: the boyfriend’s parents asked me to go out to eat with them! I know what you’re thinking. You ditched your dad to go with someone elses’s dad?! Haha, no! My dad was with one of my brothers, dropping him off at a soccer camp far away from here! Anyways, we went to Longhorn Steakhouse and I ordered the 7 oz. salmon with a side of fresh seasonal veggies. Of course, there were random nibbles of the boyfriend’s food, such as the cinnamon apples he order that weren’t that good! I mean, how can you mess up an apple 😉
After lunch we walked around and ended up in Carribou and I got a small iced nonfat Chai Tea Latte. YUM! I like the hot a little bit better, but the spices and everything were spot on!
Upon arriving home I snacked on an apple.
Dinner was a simple peanut butter sandwich and another apple.
Sunday was one of those days where I just randomly nibbled all day long!
I was quite sad last night when we had to say goodbye but I’m okay. I realize there are going to be times like this in our relationship where we can’t talk all the time, and that’s okay. We’ll get through it 🙂 This week I’m trying to stay relatively busy with some babysitting, blog work (!!), making raw almond butter (!!!), and going along for the ride on Wednesday to pick up my brother.
I woke up with my phone alarm ringing and realized I just really needed some sleep. I felt more emotionally exhausted than physically exhausted. I skipped basketball today and I slept for almost another 2 hours. I woke up, read some blogs, and took my dog for a walk. I then set to making oatmeal in a jar! My DCD jar was almost out and I made my usual oatmeal base and poured it in. Top it with a little brown sugar and PRESTO (who says that?!) you have a wonderful breakfast. I’m actually going to most likely clean this jar out really well and take the sticker off and such and use it for my almond butter. Mmm!
On the subject of basketball, I’m really at a standstill. I’ve come to realize that I am in love with the sport. I love the feeling of a basketball in my hands and the swoosh is makes when it goes in. I love being out on the court with my teammates and opponents. I am slowly starting to realize that as much as I love the sport, I probably don’t want to dedicate my life to it. I know I don’t want to ever go Pro, and I’m not even sure I want to play in college, but I might if I even got the opportunity to. I love everything about the sport, but I have so many other loves, goals, hopes, and dreams in my life. I’ll most likely change my mind many times over the next couple years. Also, my school doesn’t exactly have the best Varsity Basketball Program. I might not even play for them next year and will probably play AAU. I don’t know if I should switch schools or just stay at my school (which I love!). My school is very much so “up my alley.” It fits me perfectly, sans sports. I will always love basketball, playing or not. I look forward to seeing my Roy’s boys (props if you have any idea what I’m talking about 😉 ) and love watching and playing with all me heart. I know this technically is a “food blog,” but blogging is so much more than that. It’s a good way to get out what I’m feeling and can be a journal of some sort. Thank you guys for reading! All I can do is talk to my family and pray about it. God has a plan for my life, I just have to be patient 🙂
Sorry if that barely made sense to anyone! It all makes sense in my head, haha 😀
Today we had some people (my mom’s friends) coming over for a small stamp it up party. I was in charge of watching the kids. We swam a ton and had a great time! I get so nervous whenever kids get on the trampoline! I’m always afraid they’re gonna land funny. We have sides but still!!
I just got home from my grandparents house because they invited us over for a delicious dinner! After dinner my little brother and I took a long walk and it was so pleasant and nice.
I was planning on going to a pilates-yoga-tai chi class tonight, but we got invited over to their house, so I went to the gym instead. In life, you often just have to go with the flow. Here’s my workout. I’m trying to switch up the weights and did more low(er) rep, high(er) weights. Felt great!
I’m currently enjoying some chocolate-peanut butter hagen das (spelling?) ice cream, which is to die for. TO DIE FOR! Go buy some, like now 😉 And I’m off for a date with my google reader. Then it’s off to bed and basketball early in the morning.
Verse of the Day: Got it from my church’s “pamphlet.” John 6:35
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes through Me will never go hungry, and he who believes in Me will never be thirsty.”
