Oh Yeah, I Have a Blog

Hey Guys!  So sorry to love you and leave you.  I kept wanting to update ya'll and then things like the two papers that I am working on for school got in the way among other things like work, the gym, and the sunshine.  It's been absolutely gorgeous here and apparently good weather makes me too hyper to blog!
First- you are absolutely fabulous and eat the same stuff several times a day.  Here is the da list:
  • coffee (me too!)
  • bananas 
  • apples
  • peanut butter
  • greek yogurt
  • almonds 
  • strawberries
  • almond butter
  • hummus 
  • cheese
  • granola
I also thought it was cool to hear what your family eats:
  • Doritos, granola bars, yogurt, clif bars, meat, ice cream, and cheese
I see a little bit of a difference between the two lists, but sometimes I could totally get down with all the snacks our roomies/significant others eat!

In an effort to not bore you to death with a plethora of apples/yogurt/almond butter/chocolate food recaps, I am going to run you through a quick highlights reel:
Best breakfast- Orowheat thins french toast with frozen pomegranate arils on top and a homemade frothy latte outside.  Love.
True story- hubby had the same thing, but more and with less fruit.

Best post-workout meal: Green monster in a humongous beer glass/vase:
True story- our florist gave these to us- she used these to hold the bridal party bouquets to recognize my hubby's love of beer.

Best workout: Several nights ago I was at the gym running on the revolving apparatus of boredom when I saw how gorgeous it was outside.  I decided to take off and ran home instead.  Look at the trail I ran on- better than being inside!
True story- Mari inspired me to get out there and conquer my fear of running outside.  I ran for 20 minutes and walked the rest and it was fabulous.

Best weekend errand: In an effort to keep me from having my typical panic attack at Home Depot (what?! they have no shoes or chocolate for me to look at) my hubby put me in charge of picking two new mini cacti plants.  It kept me amused for the ten minutes it took him to buy many pounds of animal manure for our garden.

True story: We got the yellow one and a bright orange one.  I named them because they were so cute.

I've cooked, baked, and packed up some lunches.  I've been wavering a little from my health and need a little more structure in my life, so I'm reinstating the power to say no to myself every once in a while this week in an effort to feel better and more energetic.  Sometimes chocolate for dinner is not the best option and I recognize that!  I'm off to catch some zzzzz's and get ready for the excitement that awaits me this week (insert fake corporate smile here)!!

Questions for you:
1. What is your favorite weeekend errand to run? I actually love weekend errands, but of course I love grocery shopping and the farmer's market best.  Also anything that involves Target!
2. What's your favorite strategy to feel your best when it comes to health? Mine is lots of water, green tea, and trying lots of new veggies and fruits!
