I guess since I missed a week of blogging my urge to write posts is at an all time high :). I can’t help it I have a workout, eats, and exciting news to share, and I haven’t shared those in forever.
Let’s start with my lunch today.
I came home from the beach to a house with a broken fridge. Ok- not broken, but the power had gone out and everything inside of the fridge and freezer went bad. It was quite depressing to throw everything away, especially my cookies and creme Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches.
Anyways, since we have limited food options at the moment I had to work with what I had, and since there is no refrigerated items a peanut butter banana toasted english muffin sounded perfect. I also had a side of fruit/nut trail mix that was left over from Amy’s graduation party.
It held me over all day and even throughout my workout- which was 20 minutes on the elliptical and a body pump class with Amy. The class seriously kicked my butt. I haven’t strength trained in forever and my body could tell. Plus the tracks for this class seemed extra difficult today, I don’t know maybe I’m just being a wimp, but I am definitely going to feel it tomorrow. Better sore than sorry ;).
I am now making a goal to incorporate more strength training into my workouts, because I have seriously been slacking in that department all Summer. I feel like I have only been running and it’s time I add some more variety/intensity. Does anyone have any suggestions for good strength training workouts? Ideas would be appreciated :).
When I got home from the gym I made a quick quesadilla that included:
- Peach Mango Salsa (ummmm deliciousness)
- Laughing Cow Queso Fresco & Chipotle Wedge
This picture was taken after I already ate half of it, because I clearly couldn’t wait two seconds to take a picture before I practically demolished it, oops. There was no meat included because of my stupid freezer malfunction, but it was all good because the Queso Fresco Chipotle wedge was by far the highlight of this meal. I bought them yesterday and tried one for the first time with this meal, and my goodness was it amazing.
After the gym, Amy and I stopped by Giant to pick up Safe Haven from Red box and to get a few things, and while we were walking down the frozen food section, we naturally found our way to the ice cream. And, guess what we found? Strawberry Shortcake Skinny Cow Ice Cream Cakes… yes, you did read that right. We obviously bought them and how perfect was our timing, since I had just disposed of our cookies and creme ones.
It was soooo good, and I enjoyed every last bite. I especially loved it because of the vanilla cakeish part. Definitely better than the cookies and creme ones, and that’s saying something because I love those. Oh and peep Spanky.
I’d say having both Laughing Cow and Skinny Cow = a great day. Fun fact- My parents nickname for me is Moo, so maybe I’m biased.
I am typing up this blog while watching Safe Haven with Amy. I am allowed to blog during it because I have already seen it! I read the book back in the Winter right before the movie came out (duh) and loved the book, but hated the movie. However, watching it now I am liking it way more. So, I came to the conclusion that I just saw the movie too soon after reading the book, I guess?
Anyways, ready for my exciting news? I received a group email from Miranda and a handful of other awesome college aged bloggers all over the U.S about possibly planning a HLB (healthy living blog) Event!!! We are discussing location/time/sponsers already and I am so so excited. If you are a college aged blogger and are interested email me at Milesofmolly@gmail.com for more information!
