its finally September (and pumpkin spice is back at starbucks EEK) so time for a new WIAW theme!
this month’s theme is about setting goals to try and establish healthy habits for the month (and hopefully continued on throughout the winter!)
I’m not normally one for setting goals, but in the spirit of WIAW i guess i’ll go ahead and list a few!
- not skipping my Friday 9am class (failed at this one last week but I’m going to hold myself accountable from now on..damn you thirsty thursdays lol
- Plan work outs for the week and stick to them! I know this summer I neglected my work out log but at school it works best for me to plan ahead for the week so I hold myself accountable! So click here if you want to see my work out’s for the week!
- Try new recipes! (the amount of recipes I have bookmarked is insaneee) already doing well at this one! (see below)
- try to only eat out once a week..this doesn’t include my bagel a week on the weekends 🙂
I’ll post these same goals every week and keep you updated on how well I’m doing!
now onto yesterday’s eats!
hot oats and coffee are making a come back!
starbucks blonde roast with almond milk and truvia
1/3 cup rolled oats cooked in 2/3 cup almond milk and one sliced banana..topped with maple almond butter and cinnamon sugar grinder from Trader Joes!!
I got busy reading for class and then realized I had about 10 minutes to get dressed, make lunch, eat lunch, and leave for class..
so the fastest thing I could think of was a turkey wrap
in the wrap went turkey, hummus, honey mustard, lettuce, and avocado..all of which I inhaled in approximately 3 minutes but it was tasty!
I always come back at 3:30 on tuesday’s and thursdays starving because I have class from 12:30-1:45 and then another class from 2:00-3:15
my second class is actually Jazz Dance so its not a bad work out!..and maybe that’s why I come home so hungry!
I had 1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese with red grapes and some trader joes crackers on the side
after this i also had a small piece of leftover vegetable frittata
1 hour of kickboxing that KICKED my booty. (thank you Lindsay..) I actually looked like I had just taken a shower after the class was over..tmi? maybe.
One of my goals is to try new recipes so tonight for dinner I made Eat, live, Run’s spinach and feta turkey burgers
with some roasted veggies on the side and I topped my burger with avocado and sriracha
the burgers were SO delicious..I will definitely be making them again! my mouth was also on fire but I do it to myself with my sriracha addition so its all good
and I also have to mention Jenna’s book White Jacket Required..I pre-ordered it off amazon and read it in 2 days. it is definitely a MUST read and filled with a bunch of delicious recipes!
apple microwaved and topped with cinnamon sugar and maple almond butter. I will be repeating this for the next several nights in a row.
part 2 was a rice cake with peanut butter which I failed to take a picture of..clearly I have a nut butter addition!
time to go to my first class of the day!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!
