I couldn’t think of anything else to name this post. Haha! I’m just really happy! It’s been a really good day and I’m overflowing with positivity. 😀 Life is GOOD!
Woke up and had a few almonds with an apple—was running late. Whoopsie! Basketball was wonderful. It wasn’t a very strenuous practice, we just learned a lot and worked at a slower pace. If that makes sense 😛
Got home, took dog for a walk, and immediately set to work on breakfast. I’ve been trying to eat as soon as possible after a workout, and this breakfast did not disappoint in my expectations. This mix it up bowl had the following:
- 1 container of Strawberry Chobani
- Kashi Warm Cinnamon Cereal
- A handful or so of Organic Honey Toasted Oats
- 1/2 a banana
- 4 strawberries, sliced
Lunch was super yummy as well! My mom, grandma, and I got lunch from a little cafe. (I’d tell you where, but it would totally give away where I live) I ordered grilled salmon on top of a salad with pear, blue cheese, walnuts, and figs. With a raspberry vinaigrette. Mmm! After relaxing, I was itching to do some strength training! I went to the gym and did just that. Had one of the best workouts I’ve had in a while. I LOVE strength training. I’ve greatly improved my strength as well (for example, on assisted pull-downs (?) I’ve gone from 40 pounds to 55!) Here’s my workout if I can remember everything!

Dinner was equally delicious. I took a sweet potato, topped it with my typical seasonings. One half was almond butter (MMM) and the other was hummus. Oh so delicious! I also had some POM WONDERFUL and dark chocolate.
I’ve gotta go girls! But first…
Verse of the Day: I think I’ve done this one before, and if so, it’s so great I’ll do it again 😀 Philippians 4:13
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
