I was going to make this post a Wordless Wednesday post, but I have so much I want to say, so it’s not! Haha!
Breakfast: slice of homemade bread, toasted. 1/2 spread with greek yogurt (a lower in fat, healthier cream cheese) and cherry preserves and the other 1/2 with the very last bit of pumpkin spiced almond butter. With a tangelo (tangerine/grapefruit hybrid) on the side
I’ve never even heard of tangelos! When we first got them I thought it was a tangerine/orange hybrid! Looked it up online and I was wrong! It’s tangerine/grapefruit!
I’m not a big fan of grapefruit, the weird aftertaste bothers me. But these tangelos are so juicy and have a perfect tartness, love them!
I managed to take this candid shot of Chipper mid-growl with his cute little paw!
He was begging me for a walk or maybe a piece of toast!
We went on a walk around the block. We cut our walk short because it was so cold! I was wearing gym shorts and it was probably 45°F, too cold for this Florida girl!
It was a weights day today! For the last 2 weeks, every other day, I’ve been doing strength training exercises that I found on About.com. Haha, great source, right? It was the only website that I could find pictures, so I printed all the exercises out and I’ve been doing them with heavy weights. Heavy for me is 8 pounds!
I find that I love doing strength training a LOT more than I like cardio and running. Not that I don’t like cardio, but I feel so strong and it’s really fulfilling to do a bunch of strength training for me!
I also cleaned the kitchen today. Unloaded the dishwasher, loaded then unloaded again.
Don’t you love it when your brothers leave their soggy Cheerios on the counter?
The rest of my day was spent poring over this
Yup, that’s my ACT study guide. Oh the joy.
Lunch: One bowl meal. I just threw together some long-forgotten frozen veggies that have been sitting in the freezer for who-knows-how-long and cooked them up with an egg and some egg whites. Seasoned with salt and pepper and eaten with some salsa! So simple and easy, but so yummy!
I made Heather’s Protein Ice-Cream as a little treat today. Can you tell…I didn’t use xanthan or guar gum? My parents don’t see it as a necessity, so I bet we won’t be buying it anytime soon!
Haha, it still tasted delicious!
A very HEAB inspired meal, don’t you think?
Lastly, I’ve picked out the color that I’ll be painting my room! I’m so excited!
Isn’t it gorgeous? I want my room to be calm and peaceful and I know that color is going to do the trick along with my new comforter that I got for Christmas! Hopefully we will start painting this weekend!
I’d love to know:
What’s your favorite hybrid fruit? I really love pluots (plum/apricot) and tangelos!
What color is your bedroom? Mine right now has one wall pink, the rest white. I got it done when we first moved here (I was 11) and I’m absolutely sick of it! Time for a change, even though I love pink!
Thanks for all your comments about Sugar-Free week the other day!
Gah! It’s 11:22pm, I need to get to bed! Thanks for reading, see ya tomorrow!
