Decided that today would be a really productive day and I was right. I pretty much finished all my homework for next week’s classes in the span or 2 hours of hard work! It’s amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it!
After getting all my work done I wanted to make a list of some of the amazing things I’ve learned from all your wonderful Blogs in the last week:
Lana taught me about Tabata runs…. 20 seconds of sprinting and 10 seconds of rest. I completed the tabata run on a treadmill set at 10 mph. I would sprint for 20 seconds, allow the machine to continue at the same speed, raise myself up and to the side to rest for ten seconds.
Something that Rach has taught me to remember and keep locked up in my mind to keep me feeling happy: “it’s all about letting go of the past. Everyone has a history of some sort and most of us have done things we’re not proud of at some point or another. But the point isn’t what we did in the past, but who we are today.” AMEN
Michelle just made some delicious looking Vegan Banana Bread Muffins! YUM
Kayla just made some Pumpkin Maple Cinnamon Oatmeal and after I read her post I decided to head to the kitchen for pumpkin snack myself:
This is what I did all day yesterday, Shovel time!… Needless to say I woke up this morning sore as ever in my upper back area. I don’t think I was shoveling “right” :/
My brother and I were out there for a couple hours, so I counted this as my major workout yesterday. I also walked 3 miles afterward… Decided to make a Chickpea Ricotta sauce for my Linguini last night and it turned out really good!
My workout plan using weights still is not written out only because I got so much homework done today but I did manage to stick with my 45 Fitness February goal today and yesterday GO ME! Hopefully I’ll be seeing Pete tomorrow to celebrate our 10 Month! Not sure which restaurant we will be heading out to this week but I’m pumped! Pete mentioned to me that we should maybe do Greek town in Chicago because it’s where we had our first date. If we do I’ll for sure get some fresh yogurt from this great little place called Artopolis in Greek town, their stuff is to die for!
After finishing up all my work today I decided to bake Laury‘s Red Velvet cupcakes get ready for some food porn pics:
All that baking made me HUNGRY so I decided to whip me up some…..Winner Winner Fish Fillet Dinner:
I’ve been meaning to use lettuce wraps for ever because I overuse breads sometimes lol, who doesn’t though?
I’ve totally been on a Taco kick lately, I think I’m feelin’ a middle eastern or Greek kick coming on soon :)
Questions: What’s your favorite Greek Food? How about middle eastern? What’s your favorite cupcake recipe? I think Laury‘s are awesome and totally recommend them! :)
Hope you all have a wonderful Friday and an even better weekend!
