Weekend Happenings

hi!

I’m not even really sure how its already Sunday but I’m even happier that I don’t have class tomorrow

WAHOO

i think it should be a long weekend every weekend..no?

anywho sorry I’ve been kind of MIA but here’s some of what i’ve been up to this weekend

i’ve been going out and daging (aka going to day parties )

me and mollz

me norman and mollz

and obviously still taking selfies

me and lindsay!

oh and since Lindsay is a fitness and zumba instructor we did a zumba and strength work out this morning!

that is after we went to Trader Joes!!!!!!

there is a trader joes about 25 minutes from my school so its not that realistic to go grocery shopping there all the time but Lindsay and I decided we would go and stock up on all our favorite goodies!

this is just a small glimpse of all the loot i got..i was really upset trader joes doesn’t have their pumpkin butter in yet but the lady told me they would have it by the end of september..WHAT i really have to wait that long?!

but I’m excited to try the fig butter and the mini banana chocolate chip protein muffins I got!

i also got some frozen veggies, hummus, almond milk, salmon burgers, veggies, fruit, chocolate chips, cinnamon sugar grinder (SO excited to try this!!), and other things i can’t remember..but it was a LOT

i’ve also been eating some yummy food (obvsss)

2 eggs scrambled with spinach and cheddar cheese and topped with avocado and salsa..SUCH a good combo

sushi..spicy tuna roll and shrimp tempura roll with avocado on top

and my first time trying Ritas! we don’t have Ritas near where I live back home in MA so I was excited to see what all the hype was about..i got ice coffee water ice with chocolate custard..SO good. the custard was a little over kill (too thick and creamy for my liking) but the ice is SO good..I definitely want to make it back to Ritas before it closes for the season

***

i made a delicious vegetable fritatta for lunch today that I’ll be sharing the recipe for soon!

i hope everyone has a great Labor Day tomorrow!

Breakfast

since I came back from Newport  yesterday morning I stopped at my favorite coffee shop Annie D’s to get breakfast and coffee

of course I forgot to snap a picture but I got a delicious ham, egg and cheese on an english muffin..i normally get my beloved carrot raisin muffin but I resisted the temptation

Work Out

took the Duke mister (which would be my golden retriever in case your confused lol)  for another 2.7 mile run around Wellesley College

Lunch

meet my new obsession.

yes this jar mayyy be $9.99 but it could be the best 10 dollars ever spent..i just can’t get over how good it is!! (my pre-work out fuel this morning was 3 spoonfuls of this..i felt a wee bit nautious but it was worth it)

so instead of just shoveling straight spoonfuls of this..I put it to good use yesterday and came up with a delicious smoothie!

Coconut Vanilla Almond Butter Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 frozen banana

Dinner

we had a few people over from our gym for dinner so we had a nice small barbecue!

i made some of my grilled pineapple guac which was a hit!

my trainer Cheryl (who now reads my blog hi Cheryl! ) brought two delicious salads!

a pasta salad with spinach, tomatoes, olives, and thinly sliced squash

and a delicious arugula salad with watermelon and feta!

my mom and I made chicken kebobs with a homemade peach barbecue sauce

I loaded up my plate with a bit of everything

my mom also made really delicious watermelon sangria that i had a glass of

Dessert

earlier in the day I cut up a bunch of fresh peaches, plums, and strawberries and drizzled them with agave nectar and about a tbsp of granulated sugar

I let the fruit sit covered in the fridge all day and then we served the fruit salad with some frozen yogurt

best summer dessert ever.

Late Night Snack

a couple handfuls of reduced fat white cheddar cheese its which I failed to take a picture of

not healthy whatsoever but i would have to say that cheese its and gold fish are my two “junkie food” obsessions..do NOT put one of those big boxes of goldfish in front of me..it will be bad news bears

this is why I don’t babysit children because i would probably just eat their goldfish all day long

and just another side note..not that i ever remember to snap a picture of everything i eat every day but I did a really bad job of taking a picture of everything I ate yesterday..woopsies..maybe next time!

i hope everyone has a great day!

Question for ya!: What is your favorite “junkie food” snack?

hands down cheese its and goldfish..this is why I try not to ever buy these at schools! but everything is okay in moderation i think!
