I had no idea what this meant until today, when I googled it and landed on the My Life Is Average website. It’s HILARIOUS!! Check it out!!

I was planning on a post last night, after an awesome grocery shopping trip too (!!), but I was asked to babysit and jumped at the opportunity to enjoy some quality kid time and make some money having fun! Babysitting is great… 🙂

I’ve been busting my butt all afternoon working on homework, with a break in between for some gym time and dinner action.

Let’s get started with yesterday’s eats!

Oats in a jar! YAY! 100_7086

I tried two amazing grass bars yesterday! You’d think that sounds like a good sign, but it isn’t. I was a little daunted by the ingredient list on the original bar, as superb as it is, but organic broccoli in my bar? Umm…upon first bite my taste buds quickly said NO WAY! So I opened up a chocolate. Much better. Edible! 🙂 I hope I enjoy the other two flavors more though! But them being berry and peanut butter, I think I’ll be fine 😀 100_7089

Fitness

I’ve been enjoying my fair share of great, booty-kicking workouts lately! Today’s was especially wonderful.

  • 4 minute stationary bike warm up
  • Leg Work:
    • Calves: 3 sets of 20 (130 pounds)
    • Hip Abduction: 8 sets of 10 (150/145 pounds)
    • Hip Adduction: 8 sets of 10 (150/145 pounds)
    • Leg Curl: 3 sets of 11 (50 pounds)
    • Leg Press: 3 sets of 12 (110 pounds)
    • Hamstring: 5 sets of 10 (50 pounds)
    • Wall Squat held for 100 seconds
    • Knee Strengthening Exercises
  • Quick Ab Work:
    • 100 crunches on a super small exercise ball (love this! It intensifies the exercise ball so much!!)
    • Plank held for 1.5 minutes
  • 20 minutes interval biking—level nine being the highest
  • Stretch! (didn’t have time to foam roll—Darn it!!)

Felt amazing! I am planning on some yoga for tomorrow… 🙂

Before I say farewell, I have to share with you the most amazing snack I had tonight! It consisted of all natural vanilla soft serve, a banana nut vitatop (OMG YUM!), and kroger brand all natural peanut butter. Out of this world good! I wish I had given vitas another chance sooner! I think my first experience with them was my fault. I think I overcooked it…but this one was perfect! So moist and warm. Mmm! 100_7130 100_7131 100_7132 100_7134

100_7137 Verse of the Day: Romans 5: 3-4

Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Powerful stuff!

Gotta run ladies! I’ll be back in a day or two, hopefully! I’ve got a busy week school wise!

Love you all!

I’m curious and I hope you don’t me asking but how much do you typically spend a week? I love grocery shopping and for a single person I spend btwn $75-100 every week! That can’t be normal!

I’ve definitely been thinking about the struggles and hardships that God gives you along the way. Sometimes He has to step back and watch you struggle for your own good (or somebody you love). Just trust in him 🙂

Oh wow, girlie that is an amazing looking snack. Heaven on a spoon for sure!

Today, I typed my research paper in a facebook message and sent it to my professor because my 30-day free trial of Microsoft Word had expired. – MLIA

I haven’t tried the banana nut vitatops, only the chocolate ones. It sounds like it’d be so good with the vanilla ice cream. Yum!
