Hey!!! HAPPY FRIIIIIIIIIIDAY!!!!!! Sorry I was MIA last night- I had some friends over for dinner (girls night). I considered blogging when everyone left (around 1am) but am glad I didn’t as I consumed copious amounts of red vino
I started the day with a lovely b-fast cookie:
I love all the b-fast cookies that I’ve seen floating around the blog world! I’m so glad you guys enjoy them as much as I do.. It’s probably my favorite b-fast ever
I met Ashley and Megan at the gym and we did a half hour of pilates abs and a half hour of back and biceps. When I got home, I had the last (!) Pure Protein square of deliciousness:
Goodbye Pure Protein squares. You were amazing, but since I cannot find you anywhere for the life of me, it may be awhile before we meet again.
I went to work (TA) for a few hours, then came home and made a mango smoothie for lunch.
-1 whole mango (do not put the pit in the garbage disposal.. it will get stuck and you’ll eventually have to reach in with your hand to unclog it. Not pretty. I need my pilot back ASAP)
-1 cup milk of choice (I used organic skim)
-hoity toity William’s Sonoma vanilla extract (which I’m officially obsessed with. New expensive habit on the list)
-1/2 scoop vanilla protein of choice (I used Designer Whey)
Blended all up in the Vita-Mix:
Frothy and incredible:
I went to teach a step class, which went pretty well. Usually by Thursday my body hurts a little from the aerobics classes/weights/yoga I do during the week, so I usually take Thursday a little easier.
The girls came over around 7 and we attempted something I’ve been wanting to do forever: make sushi!
I set out a few appetizers:
Grapes, goat cheese and crackers
Cucumber, hummus and carrots:
I loooooove hummus:
Nori wrappers and the bamboo roller I picked up at C&B last weekend:
The filling: brown sticky rice, avocado, cucumber and carrots
Zucchini, squash, onion, carrots, garlic, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, salt and pepper:
My roll actually came out well, but the issue was cutting it! The nori didn’t cut very easily and I ended up with a california roll pile.
I also made some Gliding Calm baked tofu:
It was sooooo good!!!! We also finished off 3 bottles of organic wine (there were 4 of us). Such a blasty- I love girls night
I woke up this morning at 8 –I don’t think it’s possible for me to sleep in anymore- and decided to make some oat bran for b-fast.
-1/2 cup oat bran
-1 heaping tbs of brown rice protein
-1 small nanner
-vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt
-A TBS of TJ’s AB that the madre sent me (thank you madre!!!!!) spread all over the top:
I’m about to grab a cup (or 2) of caffe, then off to get my hurr cut. I always get nervous because my mom’s a stylist and she’s done my hair my entire life. I try to get it cut/colored when I go home, but it’s time and I don’t have a trip planned to AZ yet. So off to the V-town stylist (who’s actually very good). I need it—I look like a lion.
I’m also walking the puppies on base, meeting with a new employer (more to follow on that, but including the blog, I will now have 4 jobs. Am I crazy? Perhaps), hitting the gym (light because I’ve got a 10k bright and early), getting a massage, and then dinner It’s gonna be a good day!
Hope your weekend is off to a great start!
Random: What is your LEAST favorite song?? One that really grinds on your nerves… mine is “Little Red Corvette”. I used to hear it all the time on the 70s, 80s, 90s mix station the madre used to listen to and it drove me insane!! I heard it yesterday (so random) in a grocery store and it’s been stuck in my head ever since. Bah!!
