I am so glad to be home right now. It is a cold rainy day and I am nice and comfy in my house. We had to go out this morning for D’s karate class and then we stopped at Borders where D picked out a couple things to buy with his very own gift card – I got another yoga DVD (I am addicted).
This morning I used the WaterRower because it was raining outside and the gym was not open yet. I am so glad that I have an option available to me in my own home. I need to get some sort of physical activity every day or else I feel very sluggish and often end up with a headache.
I made some breakfast beforehand – I woke up with a very hungry belly. I mixed 1/2 a cup Greek yogurt, a banana, 1 Weetabix biscuit, 1 cup Cinnamon Puffins and a tbsp each PB and Strawberry Preserves. I love the combo of strawberry and banana – add PB and it is divine.
On the drive to karate I had a Z Bar for a snack.
For lunch I made a nice healthy plate of goodies – a bed of baby spinach, 1/2 a red pepper (mmmm, my favorite), a chopped golden delicious apple, 1/2 a cup cottage cheese and a tbsp tahini which was an awesome alternative to PB.
I also had a TJ’s granola bar (this has become a new favorite of mine). It is not too sweet, super chewy and I love the crunch from the almonds.
So here is the excitement, I had present at my door yesterday.
That’s right I am a proud owner of a Vita-Mix blender. I was asked to test it out and write about my experience with it – THANK YOU Allison!! It came with a TON of recipes which are all very healthy. This baby can make ice cream, soup, nut butters – the list is endless. I made a special spot for it on my counter next to my other appliances – they all look so happy together. I have not made anything yet – like I said it just arrived yesterday – but I will be playing around with it soon.
I have so much laundry to do today so that is what my afternoon is going to be spent doing. I hope you all have a great day. See you later.
