Well as usual, it has been pretty busy around here lately. I am trying hard to get all my school work done AND study for the finals next week. I’m getting so close though! Tomorrow is my last full day of school! Then I just have to go in and take my finals the next week and I’m outta there! I’M SO EXCITED!!!
Now, about the title of this post, I registered for an upcoming 5k race! The date is set for Saturday, June 6. This will be a step up from my last race (which was my very first race) which was a 2 mile run. I specifically chose this race because all the proceeds go to cancer research! So I need to get my boo-tay in gear and get to training! Yippeeee!
I didn’t get a picture snapped of my breakfast cookie from this morning because I was running late, so I thought I would backtrack to RAW Wednesday’s breakfast:
Raw Blended Chia oats!
For this bowl, I mixed 1/2 cup oats with 1 cup of water and 1 tbsp of chia seeds plus a dash of cinnamon. I let them sit overnight and in the morning, I whirled them around in my Magic Bullet with 1/2 banana. Them I topped it with raw almond butter. It was definitely good, but I missed my vanilla almond milk in it.
Lunch was the usual, peanut butter and banana sandwich with a side salad. Only one more school lunch!!
This afternoon, I stopped by my house to grab a quick snack before heading to work. A new (for me) Think Thin bar! Thanks Meg!
Now, the creamy peanut butter flavor holds a special spot in my heart, but this white chocolate flavor definitely hit the spot!
I left work early today because I had my 4th acupuncture appointment. In all of my appointment so far, my doctor has nut the needles in my arms/hands and legs (shin area). This was the first time he was going to put the needles in my face. Of course, I was a little bit scared at first, but I just have to tell myself, “mind over matter.” And my mom came with me and talked to me the whole time, so it was easier to take my mind off of it. It really wasn’t that bad though and the next time, it probably won’t be a big deal at all. I’m actually really loving this! It may early to tell if it is helping with my allergies but I am very hopeful that this will be a success!
Then I came home and was starving for some good food. So, good food I made. :) It was a veggie-fest tonight:
sweet potato fries and ketchup:
leftover roasted brussles! I am in love with these babies.
And for dessert, I decided to try something I saw on Jenna’s blog (surprise, surprise haha)
Greek yogurt with chocolate PB2 mixed in:
Yep, that would be my new favorite dessert. :D (besides Coconut Bliss ice cream!)
And I thought I’d end this post this a Jaci picture…she wanted to show off her new “toy”:
Have a wonderful night everybody, I’m off to go watch Grey’s Anatomy! Love to you all!
