Hey girls! Sorry for not posting in a day or two! I’ve just been going through lots right now! I’ve been busy and have been a little bit stressed out. It has ended up being a great weekend, but it was a roller coaster getting through it. Let’s start with yesterday’s lunch. It was absolutely delicious. Oh wait, before we get to that, I had a great workout before then!
I did 22 minutes on the elliptical (hill settings—mountain climb/Kilimanjaro setting?) followed by leg strengthening, knee strengthening exercises, abs, and stretching. Twas glorious. But I have to say the meal afterwards was the highlight. I had a grilled (panini press! yeahh!) pb-banana sandwich using BEE’S KNEES (swoon!!) Alongside I had some organic stonyfield yogurt with strawberries. Dinner that night was at a BBQ place for my brother’s birthday! In our family, you get to choose ANYWHERE you want to go for your birthday. Well, anywhere within reason 😉 So he chose that. I ordered BBQ chopped turkey with sweet potato fries and seasonal veggies. The sweet potato fries were to die for! The rest was really good too! 😉 I took the pictures with my NEW phone (more on that in a second!) which is wonderful because now if I forget my camera, I still can take pictures!

Anyways…I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new phone. It’s like my baby 😉 Haha! It’s an env2-Touch. Touch screen?! Opens up to another screen?! I think I should name it. But that’s borderline obsessed, right!? LOL. Pictures!!
Facebook, Email, Youtube! Nice!
Okay enough about me
and my issues…
Breakfast today was off the chain! I had 1.5 whole wheat mini bagels. One topped with almond butter, the next with skippy natural chunky, and the last Bee’s Knees. On the side was sliced banana and strawberries. Sunday School was great. Really was eye opening! Loved it 😀
Nursery also went well! I must have irked my back picking up a baby or something, because I was in so much pain for a while after! After a sweating cardio sesh it was still bad! So I took an Alleve and a hot bath and I’m feeling almost back to normal. Just gonna be more careful! Lunch after was at a blogger favorite. CHIPOTLE!!!! I ordered the salad with chicken, black beans, corn salsa, tomato salsa, and guac. Oh my goodness. Absolutely delicious. Before working out I had an apple and 1/2 a whole wheat mini bagel. The workout wasn’t anything special, just some cardio followed by some arm work.
A grocery store trip was in order tonight! Here’s a rough list…
- 3 Chobani’s
- 3 Stonyfield Yogurts
- Stonyfield Yogurt tubes (thanks Heather for the coupons!!)
- Annie’s Chocolate Graham Bunnies
- A variety of apples
- extremely large amount of bananas
- apple cinnamon z-bar
- Pumpkin Spice Kashi Bars
- Flatout Wraps
- Amy’s Burrito
Although it was high in sodium, I’ve been wanting to try Amy’s for a while and you only live once, right? 😉 My verdict? In all honesty, I wasn’t in LOVE with it. Yes, it was tasty, but kind of a disappointment. It won’t stop me from trying more Amy’s products though! For some reason, I wanted to put ketchup on mine. How weird is that? I wish I had actually!
Mmm! As you can see, it’s been a day filled with delicious eats. But more importantly, I’ve been really listening to my body. And it’s such an amazing feeling to be able to eat intuitively. Like for instance today, I got home from the gym a starvin’ marvin’ and proceeded to eat Bee’s Knees out of the jar. I don’t know how much I had (or care! I hate measuring things, so I don’t do it!!), but it filled me up and quieted my stomach! So when typical dinner time rolled around I wasn’t hungry. I waited until we got home after the grocery store and then my hunger hit. 🙂 So freeing…
Verse of the Day: 1 Corinthians 6:19
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
Love that verse tons and tons!
Sorry this post has been pretty much all over the place! Hope you managed through all right! 🙂
Have a wonderful night ladies! I start school on Wednesday so I don’t know what the next few days will bring! I will in fact be back soon to tell some big news if our offer goes through. I’ll give you a clue: we might be moving!! Super exciting!
