WHAT UP bloggie boos!!
How was everyone this beautiful and POURING DOWN RAIN Monday? Well, maybe it wasn’t so bad where yall are, but in Cincinnati, it was like a torrential downpour! Craaaze!
Then this happened…
Seriously, it was like the last five minutes of my run and I was in a full out sprint! The sky was practically black, and it was crazy scary! And I may or may not have looked like someone pushed me in a pool by the end of my run. Cooool.
The run was pretty easy today though, except for one MAY-JAH hill – but I at least knew about it going in. Seriously, I had to walk up it and by the top, my HR was at 180 and my calves were on fireeee. I always forget how hard big hills can be!
When I got home, I finally did a video I’ve been meaning to for a long time, Jillian’s 30 Day Shred Level 1! It was wonderfully difficult and I was feelin’ the burn big time!
Before I got started with the work out though, I had a nice bowl of cereal… sortaaa. A while ago, Gabriela posted about eating raw oats with almond milk, and I loved that for a long time! This morning, I decided to try it with oat bran.
Oat bran with vanilla almond milk and blueberries! I’m almost finally out of the berries I bought at Whole Foods on Friday, and I’m so sad to see them go!
Although this was pretty good, I’m not sure it was a breakfast worth repeating. The raw oat situation was actually much more fun to eat than this was, because with this all the oat bran sunk to the bottom and got really thick down there. It tasted great, but I love my textuuuures (:
Post-workout lunch was a mixed green salad with beans, carrot, apple, and tomato. This was mostly leftover from last night, but it still tasted pretty good! I also had a fruit plate of sliced kiwi and sliced peach afterwards for a little somethin’ sweeeeeet. Whatttup sweet tooth!
After lunch, I had a couple of errands to run, including a trip to the malllll (: Probs one of my favorite errands to run, period. I bought like, four new sundresses – the haul is up at the end of the post! I only ended up getting things from J. Crew and Francesca’s, but I love both those places so it all worked out!
When I got home, I was feelin’ a carby-type snack! Two slices of cinnamon-raisin Ezekiel bread: one with dark choc dreams and one with dark choc cocoa powder. And to top it all off, dark chocolate chunks. Did I possibly OD on chocolate after this snack? Possibly. Will that stop me from possibly having this snack tomorrow? Hell nah, brah.
Granted, snacks don’t hold me off for too long… so this happened pretty soon:
My Dad was out for dinner tonight, so Will [the bro] and I were on our own. He doesn’t eat dinns til like, nine or ten? And I’d rather gnaw my own arm off than wait that long [hey dramatic.] So I turned to the freezaaah for some food! TJ’s Meatless Meatballs and Garden Medley frozen veggie blend. This dinner totally hit the spot!
However, it also made me realize that I really want to avoid frozen veggies. It’s just the look of them that’s so weird… I feel like they don’t look like real vegetables! Really, it just looks more like… clay replicas of it or somethin’. So, moral of the story – efficient in a pinch, but probs not my go-to plan.
Now, how about some pretty clothin’ pic-tuurrres!
J. Crew chino shorts
J. Crew “Vacay” slip dress [super cute with a belt and wedges whaaaaat?!]
Francesca’s dress with rope detail [this one and the next one look much longer than they really are… they both fall a little above the knee.]
Francesca’s. This one is actually solid yellow, not two-toned the way it looks here because I accidentally covered the flash with my finger!
Francesca’s. Black t-shirt type dress, really cute and comfy!
Sorry about the blurry picture… I accidentally deleted the good one! Hey there, Clemson orange necklace (:
I literally own no bracelets, save for one from the Return to Tiffany collection.
Long chain necklace (Francesca’s)
Close up of the chain necklace – it’s so pretty!
Alright yall that’s all I’ve got for tonight! Not really sure what I’ll do for the rest of the night, but I’m sure my Twitter feed will let ya know (;
Do you have a staple piece of jewelry?
I have an Elsa Perretti necklace from the alphabet collection with an ‘S’ on it, plus two medals from this thing I go to in August… I’ll be able to talk more about it lataaah!
