Quite the HEAB approved snack!

6 09 2009

Last night my “midnight” snack was a plain sweet potato topped with all natural almond butter. Twas delicious! Just about perfect! 100_6818




I am currently watching a program on channel 3 (for me). It’s about kidnappings. 2 to be exact, I think. Both people have survived. They’ve been through hell and back and it’s making me almost… sick! It makes me sad and angry. I wish I could just give all these people (the victims) a huge hug and solve all their problems.

On a lighter note…

I’m working with the littlest babies in my church tomorrow!! 🙂 I’m so excited. Typically I work with the 1-2 year olds so this will be a definite change! I loooooove kids! 🙂


This morning’s breakfast was dark chocolate oat bran! Delicious! Here’s what went into the bowl:

  • 1/3 cup oat bran, 1 cup water
  • banana
  • dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • stevia
  • strawberries
  • almond butter+a bit of DCD

Today’s workout featured P90X! My dad ordered it for both of us. Thanks dad!! I really am interested in the whole concept of muscle confusion. I don’t plan on following the program to a “T.” But I am def. going to make use of the arm/chest/back/shoulder workouts. I think it gives the best arm workout! I can’t wait to see myself in a few weeks, haha! I also want to try the 1.5 hour yoga class! Seems intense—in an awesome way!!

Lunch followed my workout. I had an avocado-provolone flat out wrap. Panini-d, of course!! I also had some vanilla yogurt with 1/3 a peach and blueberries, and veggie chips with hummus. 100_6835






Tonight was spent at the boyfriend’s house. Update on his collarbone: So, he was planned to get the sling off in a week and a half and it was almost fully healed. Off we went to the retreat (which ended up being a blast 😀 ) and someone accidentally (supposedly…) tripped him and he fell and re-broke it. So another 6 weeks. He’s incredibly bummed about this, as you can imagine, so I tried to cheer him up! I think it worked 🙂

Tomorrow we are having a HUGE party with at least 45 people coming!! Lots of fun, food, and friends! Should be a blast!

I am so relieved that we have Monday off. 4 day school week–me like!!

Verse of the Day: John 3:16 (I don’t think I’ve done this one before! Either way, it’s an incredible verse!)

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

I discovered this weekend, how important it is to panini-fy your wraps! Toasted is seriously better.

Hope you have an awesome time at that mega big party 🙂
