Lazy Sunday

Hey-o bloggie loves! Did everyone have a wondahful Sunday Funday?! I sure did!

wf

Ehhh… ignoring that situation, it was still a fan-tabulous Father’s Day! My Dad and I were at my brother’s lacrosse tournament for most of the morning, and although I’m not totally sure about the way it ended [they tied, but due to point differentials they didn’t advance?] I was glad to see him play! Although I’m not sure when I’ll get to see him in action next… I’ll be gone for almost all of the season next year! I hope it still works out though (:

Anyways, we had an early wake up call for the first game of the day, and I didn’t wanna risk getting hungry hangry at the field, so I made sure to fuel up before we peaced out!

Banana Protein Oats

Serves 1

  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 1c water/milk/liquid of choice
  • 1 scoop protein powder [Sun Warriaaahhh]
  • 1 medium banana [the riper the better!]
  • 1 T flax meal
  • Toppings: fruit, nut butter, nuts, honey, whateverr

Heat water to rolling boil, then add oats [pinch of salt is optional!]. Allow to cook on medium-high temp for at least 4 minutes before stirring in thinly sliced banana and cook for one more minute. Then stir in your protein powder – but reduce the heat to low-medium ish (about a 3 on a scale of 1-10). Cover your pot and allow the oats to cook for three minutes, this will make them super doughy and thick! Just the way I like emmm. After three minutes, remove lid, stir, and add in flax meal if you’re using it. Remove from heat and add to your bowl before adding your toppings! I rolled with bloobs, Dark Choc Dreams, + SC honey! What up yummss.

So I’m starting to realize that I’m really good about posting my breakfasts, but lessbeserious. There’s like, maybe five pictures of dinner/lunch… combined. So I’m starting Mission: Take Pictures of Lunch and Dinner. Which will of course go into full effect tomorrow. Not tonight because I only got pics of lunch!

Baked sweet pataytah with a pb+j pita! (Dark choc dreams, duh, and SC strawbs jam, which was actually a little too sweet for me!)

This lunch also brought a revolting development to my attention – I’m super impatient. As in I checked on this potato at least ten times before I decided I didn’t wanna wait anymore… and the middle was still a little stiff! Don’t get me wrong, it was delish, but I love gooeyness [awk word] in my sweets!

Can’t win em all, I suppose!

After lunch, I planned on running – but the drizzly weather actually unmotivates me to get my ash into action! It’s a little pathetic, I know, but I did some yoga instead! Maura Barclay, because I’m obsessed with this one, and an ab workout from Women’s Health magazine [the issue with Heather Morris on the cover!]

A little after my workout, I had a snackity snack of a yogurt bowl:

DSCN0478

Fage 0% Greek, bloobs, pumpkin butter, DCD, raw oats, dark chocolate chunks, and about 1T of chia seeds! I went ahead and ate this around the time I would usually have dinner, cause my dad was cooking tonight!

Because my eating habits are significantly different from that of my Dad’s and my brother’s, I usually eat dinner way earlier than they do, and will have my night time snack when they have dinner. But, given that it’s Father’s Day and all, I really wanted to eat dinner with them! So I took care of the salad, and ate everything my dad made [except the pork tenderloin.] We had grits, baked and sautéed plantains, and a mixed green salad! Which, as previously mentioned, I big time failed in taking a picture of!

Alright, well, I’m gonna go watch the rest of Hall Pass with my Dad and brother! So far, it’s hilarious!

How was the weather where you live today?

Aiiight I’m out babes!

Being a Bad Blogger

Good evening Bloggity Babes!

I capitalized it, so it’s a real term now. Enjoy.

I totally have a confession – I’ve been such a bad blogger! Hah although I had a post go live on Sunday, the last time I wrote a post for real was Thursday night when I was in Clemson! But hey, you can’t win em all, right? Life totally comes first.

Well, that, and I left my USB drive in Clemson so I haven’t been able to upload pictures – UNTIL tonight when I got a little crafty (:

So I’ve previously said that I have the inability to bring everything with me that I take places. When I go to my best friend’s house, I inevitably get a text that reads something like “Thanks for the shirt and the book” or “thanks for the sunglasses and the shoes” or “thanks for the wallet and the money.” OK, the last one was a little extravagant [mostly because I don’t take my wallet out of my purse KNOWING that I would lose it if I did]. But how about a quick list of what I left in Clemson?

  • USB drive
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Lululemon water bottle

I really liked that water bottle too. I don’t mind the shampoo/conditioner situation so much, because it gave me a reason to go out and buy a new set (: I got Burt’s Bees Super Shiny Grapefruit and Sugar Beet shampoo [the same one I had before. PS, what’s a sugar beet?!] and Desert Essence’s Coconut Conditioner! I’m totally obsessed with the conditioner, my hair has smelled like coconut for days!! I’ll totally do a review on the stuff if yall want!

Before I start, I wanna show yall a picture I took Friday at the very end of the tour, it’s one of my very favorite shots of Clemson!

DSCN0417

This is Tillman Hall, one of the main buildings on campus! It’s absolutely gorgeous (:

But good news, my dad totally loved the tour! It seriously made me so excited to get all started at school and get settled into my new life! It’s weird because it’s finally starting to set in that I’m practically a grown up! [Psych. I won’t be 18 until like… 11 days prior to move in day.]

But let’s talk about some of the work outs, shall we?!

True to the 21 day yoga challenge, I’ve been making sure to keep up with just a little bit every day, and I’m totally feeling the results! Especially after the car ride, when I could feel my hips loosen WAAAY up after just a little bit of stretching!

Today, I did a quick three miler that took a little bit longer than anticipated, probably because there was  HUGH JASS hill right in the middle! I ended up walking up it, and not only did it take 5+ minutes, my HR didn’t drop below 175 the whole time! It was crazy! Fortunately, the heat wave seems to have dissipated, so the run wasn’t blaaayzin or anything.

How about we check out some of ze eats now, shall we?

DSCN0424

Fitnessista’s Perfect Protein Pancakes, topped with a sliced peach [picked some up on the drive home, they’re SC fresh!] and a little maple sizzurp!

DSCN0425

Shmoothie bowl for lunch! Topped with pumpkin butter that my dad and I picked up from the same place we got the peaches! Absolutely delicious, by the way! [1c almond milk, 1 scoop Sun Warrior, 1 scoop Chocolate Green Superfood Powder, handful frozen spinach, one banana, and 1/2c pumpkin] Weird combo, but supah delish which is what really matters!

DSCN0426

Toast with apple butter [bought with the peaches + pumpkin butter!] and a sliced apple!

DSCN0429

Meet dinnerrrrr – whole wheat pasta + grape tomatoes + steamed broc + ketchup …. + more steamed broc. No judgment, right?

That’s most of what I ate Monday, but I totally forgot to snag some pics of some things and I don’t remember the whole deal!

But this morning’s breakfast was scrumptious!

DSCN0433

Peanut Candy Cereal

  • 1 Serving cereal of choice [I used TJ’s High Fiber]
  • 1/4c peanut flour
  • Sprinkle of sea salt
  • Sweetener to taste
  • Almond milk to thin
  1. Mix 1/4c peanut flour, TINY sprinkle of sea salt, and sweetener in a small bowl. Slowly add water until flour reaches a thin-ish, almost soupy consistency.
  2. Top with cereal of choice.
  3. Stir cereal and peanut flour mixture until cereal is almost totally covered. If it’s still too thick, pour a tiny bit of almond milk [or cow’s/soy/hemp/rice/whatever] over until you can stir it easily.
  4. Add toppings of choice! Para ejemplo, raspberries and cocoa powder (: BUH-LISS baby!

The best thing about this cereal is that it’s totally adaptable to what you’re feeling! You can change the cereal to anythang you want, change the fruit, change the spread, add some nut butter, get craze with it!

I totally did not snag ANY pics of the other stuff I ate today. #whoops

One thing I did get a picture of? My atrocious parking job. #whogavemealicense

DSCN0428

My car’s the black one… I actually parked over the line. Usually I consider it acceptable if like, one tire sortakinda touches the line. But I am full on in an other person’s space. Sorrryyyy. But don’t worry, Jenny of Peanut Butter & Jenny does it too, so we’re totally in the clear.

I’m off for the night, I’ve got work in the morning! Have a great evening, even if it was was Pretty Little Liar-less for me ):

Are you a good driver?

Are you a serial-forgetter?
