Holy March, REALLY?!


Good morning to all! Is it just me or can you not believe it is March already?! It’s freaking me out. My 25 birthday is in 9 days!!! OMG!!! I am very excited! I’m def not one of those people who doesn’t like getting older. I seriously love it in some ways, I mean I am so much better of a person than I used to be ๐Ÿ™‚ ha. Not to mention my life just keeps getting better with age!

Did you all have a good Sunday? I spent it mostly paper writing, but I did get in a 25 minute run!! YAY!! And my knee feels fabulous today. ย It has actually been really hard for me to slowly work my way back from my knee injury, but I def think it’s paying off because it never hurts anymore! I have also been trying to do all my running outside instead of on the treadmill, because that thing is harsh on my knee. Here’s my mini little playlist:

Set the Fire to the Third Bar 3:23 ย Snow Patrol & Martha Wainwright
The Weary Kind (Theme from Crazy Heart) 4:18 Ryan Bingham
BedRock 4:48 Young Money & Lloyd We Are Young Money Hip Hop/Rap
Forever 5:57 Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem More Than a Game
How Low 3:27 Ludacris
Hallelujah (feat. Charlie Sexton) 4:16 Justin Timberlake & Matt Morris

I also headed to the gym for a short workout of arms. I am still doing this arm workout I posted ย loooong time ago.ย Tracy Anderson arm workout. ย This workout is all about low weights and reps, and it’s awesome. I really thing this is the most definitiion I have ever had in my arms. I run through it 3 times, with short cardio breaks in between each set, 15 minutes on the elliptical after set 1, and 15 minutes on the stairmaster after set 2.

I also had a pretty sweet day of eats. I was inspired by Tyler and made a quesadilla for lunch.

I used a large Ezekiel tortilla with Tofutti american cheese, a gardenburger portabella burger (sooo good) and then I used a bit of the broccoli slaw I got (in the lettuce section of walmart, it is like shredded carrots and broccoli, it comes dry) and added a spoonful of greek yogurt to it. ย Put these all in the tortilla folded in half and cooked on a skillet sprayed with Pam. Voila!! SOOOO DELICIOUS!!! I also had an orange with this.

Snack was another raw bar with some almond butter ๐Ÿ™‚ Messy and yummy.

Joey made dinner while we watched Food Network Spinach and mushroom pizza with a pesto sauce, I’m spoiled.

I also finished my annie’s bunnies and added some raisins for a treat

I have been seeing this Chia pudding around the blogs so I decided to try it out to see what’s up. So last night I added 1 tbsp chia seed to 1/4 cup almond milk

Before

After: it doesn't exactly look like the other ones I've seen on the blogs

Regardless, I added this to my oats this morn: 1/2 cup whole wheat flakes (I got a big bag of these things from the bins at mama jeans for 68 cents!!), 1 cup water, 1 tbsp bees knees pb, chia seed pudding, 1 packet stevia, cinnamon, 1/2 scoop protein powder

Holy WOW, the pudding made these soooo creamy and delicious. The best I've had in a long time!

Well that’s it from me here! Heading to a hot yoga class this morning and then class and paper writing tonight, yahoo!!! What a fun day ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyone else have big plans?

Oh and I started reading this book last night. Has anyone read it? Thoughts?

  1. Yay…for a painfree run! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I’m sooooo lucky my knee is progressing as the weather here is getting nice. Because I yearn for running when it’s relatively nice out (well I like running in 35-45 degree weather), but of course i’ll run anytime!

  2. Yay for your birthday coming up! Love your attitutude about it ๐Ÿ™‚

    That arm workout looks great. I’m always looking for new moves to try.

  3. Isn’t it crazy how quickly time seems to go nowdays? I think that makes me sound old… he he he. But I hope I have the same outlook as you in five months when I hit 25! eek!

  4. Hello! You have the same birthday as my boyfriend’s mom! I get the same way about birthdays, I love them so much. This month, on the 13th, is my half birthday. Not nearly as exciting, but I take what I can get. I am getting a sample of some chia seeds sent to me soon, I cannot wait to try them! The pizza looks amazing, by the way. You are one lucky girl to have a boyfriend who loves to cook.
    Oh! Did you know that today is Noodle Day? Of course, this means, pasta noodles, but your dog is named Noddle, too! Thought I would let you in on this fact.

  5. Let me know how the book is, I’m in need for a new (non-academic related) novel!

    Hope you are able to have a mindful Monday! (Yes, I’m loving alliterations)
