Happy Friday dudes and dudettes!
I am posting this early because yours truly has TONS she really needs to get done tonight. Plus, it will most definitely be an early bedtime for that 15-mile long marathon training run tomorrow morn!
43 DAYS AND COUNTING!!! Ahhhhhhh!
Since I am taking on Sarah’s breakfast challenge to eat a different breakfast for the next week, I needed a change up from yesterday’s yogurt + berries and AB+J sammie. The obv choice was Overnight Oats!
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup skim milk
1/4 cup Siggi’s blueberry yogurt
1/4 cup POM juice
~ sit overnight ~
3/4 cup strawbs
hunk o’ almond butter
These are thick, creamy and hit the spot on a warm summer morning. TWSS.
Mid-morning snack was something I’ve been anticipating for awhile….the Peanut Butter and Jelly Larabar!
I have officially NEVER met a Lara I didn’t like. Delish.
Since it was Fun Lunch Friday today, the gang and I headed to one of my Madtown faves for some lovely eats, including this beauty:
This monster has mixed greens, hardboiled eggs, green beans, potatoes, red onion, tomato, grilled salmon and a lemon caper creme fraiche dressing. Dee-lish-uss!
On the way back to the office, I grabbed a Diet Coke. Honestly, I haven’t had many Diet Cokes in the past month – I am sooo proud of myself! Today was a treat, and I enjoyed it with a handful of yummy pretzels.
How am I going to top this fabulous day of eats for dinner? I have no idea. All I know is I have a big head of kale screaming my name in the crisper, and it wants to be used up. Stat.
My to-do list for the evening (PLEASE hold me accountable for this!):
- Sign-up for Mint.com to track my finances and create a budget
- Look through insurance info and decide on a health plan
- Target (pillow, oven cleaner, batteries + two-three prong converter – that’s it!)
- Bloggy thangs – changes in the works!
- Clean the living room + Swiffer the hardwood floors
And of course, cook up a gourmet dinner :).
Alright homies, whatcha up to this weekend? Spill the deets. I’m also thinking of going to the fabulous Madison Farmer’s Market tomorrow morn (Jenna knows what I am talking about!) and just relaxing, along with lots of yoga!
