Hey everyone! How are ya? Hope your day is treating you well so far 😀
I’m posting a little later than anticipated because I overslept BIG time this morning. I’ve been horrible about that lately but our bed just sucks me in and I can’t get out 😉 I had big plans to wake up super early, walk the puppies and blog before Jeni picked me up at 8 to go to kickboxing. I woke up to my cell ringing, looked at the clock and it was 8:15! Poor Jeni was sitting in my driveway and I was sleeping peacefully. I had to meet her on base since I still had to get dressed and take the puppies out :/
I grabbed this bar in a frenzy:
And kickboxing was AWESOME. I love that she does circuits—we’ll alternate between weights and cardio and my heart was thumping the entire time. It really was a great way to wake up, even though I didn’t start the day off how I’d planned.
After kickboxing, I went to the commiscary to get something I haven’t had in my life in WAY too long:
I LOVE this stuff. Since I can’t get the raw cheddar here in V-town, the goat jack cheese is a lovely subsitute 😀
The rest of bfast was the usual sludge:
And I got to work on some macaroons to take to the familia since we leave for Tucson in TWO DAYS!!!!
Blonde: (Cinnamon Almond)
Mmmmmmm. I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t have any dough 🙂 Just for quality purposes of course.
I also checked on a little kitchen experiment I had going:
I picked up an avocado yesterday that was rock hard and bright green. I’m pretty sure there are no ripe avocados in this town because I’ve gone to three grocery stores in an attempt to find some. I googled ways to ripen avocados quickly and came across a method that said to put the avocado in a brown paper bag with a banana. The ethylene gases are supposed to help the avocado ripen at a rapid pace and said it should be ready to eat within 20 hours.
20 hours later:
MUCH better!! Seriously, that avocado was bright green yesterday and now it’s a nice greenish black color. It’s still pretty firm, but I think it will be ready by tomorrow’s lunch. Sweet!!!
Rewind to last night, I had a salad beast after I last posted:
Greens, spinach, grape tomatoes, raw apple cider vinegar, nutritional yeast and an herb Sunshine burger.
In all honesty, I don’t have a ton going on today besides laundry for our trip, yoga and spin later tonight. So methinks I’m going to spend most of the afternoon by the pool. I have a boatload of emails to catch up on so I might take my laptop out there and chillax for a while 😀
Have a wonderful day!
