Bean Town here I come

Well, I can’t believe it’s finally here, but I will soon be on my way to Boston! Unfortunately not for the Healthy Living Summit, but still, I’m excited. ;)

Our plane leaves bright and early Monday morning! The airport is an hour away from where we are so we will be driving over tonight and staying in a hotel right next to it tonight.

I am *almost* finished packing. I tried very hard to not procrastinate this time around and I feel like I did a pretty good job! I started packing the bulk of my stuff…clothes, shoes, etc a few nights ago and now all I have to pack is my bathroom stuff.

I woke up determined to make today a productive day since I still have a list of things to do before I leave tonight. So as soon as I woke up, I hit the treadmill for a quick interval run/walk to start my day out right. I felt so much better afterwards!

After my run I savored every sip of this lovely Green Monster as I won’t be able to have one for another whole week. Sigh.


It contained:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • butt load of spinach
  • 1 scoop of amazing grass, pom mango flavor
  • 1 huge scoop of cocoa powder
  • 1 frozen banana
  • lots of ice

GM, you will be missed. *tear*

Yesterday while out at Target, picking up a few last minute things for the trip, I picked up this:



My first aluminum water bottle! It was too cute to say no to. ;) I have been wanting to make changes to live a more green lifestyle and I think that this is the perfect place to start. I will be taking this with me to Boston and will not be using a single plastic water bottle while I am there. Go me. :D

On the eating front, I promised more foodie pictures, so here is a glimpse at what I have been enjoying lately.

My latest yogurt mess concoction…Oikos plain greek yogurt with 2 tbsp PB2, Uncle Sams cereal, Annie’s Bunnies, and dried apricots:


Some juice made it’s way into my amazing grass shaker!


Tons of sammie combos and hugh jasses:





Stuffed bell peppers and green bean fries: (holy yum)


Recipe to come? I think so.


A new peanut butter…chocolate chip cookie dough, to be exact:




Chocolate pudding:


I made this using Oikos greek yogurt (plain) and mixed in dark chocolate cocoa powder and stevia. Topped with a scoop of fro yo, naturally. ;)

And that’s all for now, folks! I’ve got to get my boot-ay in gear and get things done!


Adios for now!
