I hope all of my New England natives have finished off their obligatory bread, eggs, and milk and finally found out that awesome sledding hill across the street is actually your car under a mountain of snow.
27 inches of soft, white, damn you to hell snow. And Mother Nature, bless her heart decided to grace us with another 3 or so inches just to
stick it to us gently remind us it’s still winter….for a while.
I’ll be making my way up to Portland this weekend to celebrate with the gals for Miss Becky’s birthday!
And because it’s Friday and I said so, I’m joining up with Clare for some Five Things Friday!
Five Things I Ate:
My version of Oh My Veggie’s Cabbage Rolls. While delicious, I was five months pregnant with bloat and…let’s say GI distress.
And it was a lot of work. Any 85 year old grandmother who makes you cabbage rolls deserves a Nobel Peace Prize. Or at least some butterscotch candies.
All of this party mix. When I finally brought some in to the girls at work, there were no pretzel survivors from my gorging. ADD-ICT-ING.
-Finally back on the oatmeal grind after a good 6 month hiatus. I’ve been adding some protein and healthy fats to make them a lot more filling, and I’ll be sharing some tips very soon!
-Trying to like green smoothies…still.
Much like coconut water, meditating, and Grey’s Anatomy. I really want to like them, but it always fails. I always end up hungry for something real (ahem..peanut butter) an hour later.
Jalapeno Poppers. I’m sorry I made and ate all of the Super Bowl snacks a week in advance. I’ll be sure to bring a homemade bag of potato chips and velvetta for Sunday.
Monday: Upper Body Circuit
Tuesday: Lower Body Fix
Wednesday: Does shoveling count? YES.
Thursday: Jillian Michael’s Ripped in 30: Week 3 (death)
Five Things Making Me Happy:
The day has finally come! I can now hashtag the ish out out #Fitfluential now that I am oh-ficially an ambassador!
Finally getting to test out my yaktrax. I have yet to go running after my half, and am really trying to get my body back in line. I have been doing a lot of walking, and all this snow at least gave me the opportunity to give them a test run..er walk.
…That is until what I thought was ice was really an ankle-deep puddle of ice cold slush. Turns out the roads weren’t as snowy as I thought, and didn’t really need them after all. Whomp. Whomp.
-Getting together this weekend. With all my college gals so far apart, it’s always great to have a little reunion and pretend we’re still in college. That is until we all slap on some sweatpants and fall asleep by 10:30.
-Scar Jo. I finally watched the movie, Lucy, which was a bit too sci-fi, woo-woo out there for me.
Nonetheless, Scarlett was pretty BA, and it also starred Morgan Freeman. That combo can’t be totally horrible in my books.
Make it a great day!
