Oh hello! So here’s how computer savvy I am (not). I’ve heard great things about windows live writer all around the blog world, so I thought I would give it a shot, too. I googled it and started the download process to find that it’s been on my computer this whole time. Probably since I got it 5 years ago. Nice job paying attention to detail Allison. Anyway, I now have the program updated, connected to my blog, and running. I’m actually currently using it to type this post! So let’s see how this publishes. There will probably be some funky stuff, since I’m sure I didn’t set it up right; I’ll most likely have to play trial and error for a while. So far it’s seeming pretty cool though! I’m sure I’ll learn a lot from this program; you guys have already opened my eyes to so many things I didn’t know about the internet before blogging.
Let’s rewind to last night when I had this dessert….
My 10 year old sister actually came up with the idea for this bowl! It’s Costco vanilla frozen yogurt with some sliced strawberries and dark chocolate chips. Delicious. Go buy Costco’s frozen yogurt immediately if you’ve never had it before.
Moving on to this morning, I have actually been quite busy! I started off the day with literally rolling myself out of bed (I swear, my head was stuck to the pillow) and going to jazzercise for an hour. The class was actually great with a ton of high energy; I’m glad I went! Not that I really had a choice…I’m a class manager so I need to go to classes a half hour early to check in customers and help the instructor with anything they may need. After that I came home and had some breakfast and did a couple of Tone It Up workout videos.
Breakfast was the usual yogurt bowl with blueberry Chobani, a sliced banana, KIND blueberry vanilla cluster granola, and 1 tsp. flaxseeds. For those of you that don’t know, I try my best to follow the Tone It Up workout plans. Karena and Katrina are hosting a Valentine’s Day challenge right now that involves them giving specific workouts for us to do each day and nutrition tips as well. I don’t follow their nutrition advice as much as I would like to, mainly because the recipes require a lot of ingredients that aren’t readily available to me. I do my best to make healthy substitutions though. Anyway, today they said to do two workouts from their Beach Babe DVD: Surfer Girl and Bikini Sculpt. Their workouts are seriously just so darn fun! They are super motivational and absolutely beautiful. They make me want to work out when I’m not feeling like it so much. Check them out :p
While I was working out, I had the TV on as well (I was playing the DVD in my laptop) and kept seeing a news story about a 30 car accident on a local highway that resulted in 4 deaths: 3 children and 1 adult . Heartbreaking. Definitely sending happy thoughts out to all those affected <3 This is a picture someone involved in the accident took of the cause of the accident. The news anchor said that there was a 5 second white-out from all the snow, causing limited visibility and this huge mess. You can see my living room reflection in the picture, but it really lets you tell how white the road was. Super dangerous.
After finishing up my workout, I had some lovely leftovers for lunch. I still had like 1/3 of my vegetarian bowl from Chipotle last night. I toasted up a multi-grain sandwich thin, spread it with some roasted red pepper hummus, added some fresh lettuce, and then poured on my Chipotle. So. Freaking. Good. I had the rest on the side, along with some more hummus and baby carrots. This is the best sandwich I’ve ever had, seriously.
Since lunch I have been doing some serious work on new workouts for clients (and for you guys!) and focusing on finishing up my various client introductory packets. It’s a lot more work, and much more time consuming, than it seems! I just made myself this snack of an apple and 1 tbsp. cookie butter and some TJ’s green tea, which I’m going to have while I work on some more training stuff and continue to work on developing my website. Thank you so much to all of you who offered help with design; I’m going to take you guys up on that!
I gave Luke some of the cookie butter the other day, and his face was hilarious. I think he wants to put it on everything now. Poor guy is allergic to nuts, so he’s never even had peanut butter, almond butter, etc. This is the next best thing! In my opinion, it’s even better.
Have a great rest of your afternoon; I’ll be back later with some fun pictures :p
What’s the best sandwich you’ve ever had?
