Bootylicious Buns

Hey Ladies!

This will be a quickie (TWSS) as I need to get ready and get off to work, but I wanted to check in with my lovely blogettes first!

This morning I started off with some random moves on the yoga mat, then proceeded to check out this Bootylicious Buns video from exercise tv. I was feeling the burn…big time. It was fab. :)

Yesterday I am pleased to report that I had a much better run than the last one! My legs no longer weighed 100 pounds each; they were light as feathers. ;) I ended up doing 4 miles total, with a combination of running and walking.

Afterward my buns workout, my stomach was a rumblin’ so I set out for the kitch, knowing exactly what I wanted.

It involved this:


Ta Da!


The classic oatbran in a jar, HEAB style. :)

I had mixed emotions about this breakfast. On one hand, I was thinking “oh my gosh, foodgasm” but on the other hand, I was thinking about how once I finish this, I will officially be out of not other Barney Butter, but almond butter in general. The horror!

What is your favorite almond butter brand?

Guys, I am getting SO excited for my trips! One thing I am stoked about is being able to hit up Whole Foods and Trader Joes!! It will be my very first Trader Joes visit, can you believe it?? This is most definitely a downfall of living in a small town…you just don’t have access to near as much stuff! I can’t wait to be in foodie heaven. :D

So that is where you all come in…What are some must have Trader Joe goodies? I am already for sure planning on trying out the following:

  • TJ’s peanut butter pretzels
  • grind your own almond butter (anybody know how much $$$ this is at TJ’s?)
  • sunflower nut butter
  • TJ’s cinnamon raisin doughnuts

Yum Yum Yum!

Alright, I’m off to go get ready for the day. Then tonight I will be getting together with some friends for a little Big Brother viewing. Ok my fellow trash tv watchin’ sisters…who has been watching this? Come on, fess up!
