I’m a Six Year Old.

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart.. I’ll always be with you.”

Winnie the Pooh

Isn’t that quote too cute?! Maybe I’m just being sentimental because one of my best friends is leaving for the summer soon [but I get to go visit her!!], or maybe it’s that graduation has finally hit me – regardless, Winnie the Pooh will always have a soft spot in my heart.

Then again, maybe I just want to be a kid again. Guess what I watched Tuesday night?

Ohhhh yeah, baby. Hercules is totally one of my favorite Disney movies! Potentially just for this song… Been obsessed since I was a little girl!

Now, to keep me from dwelling on my favorite past times, let’s move onto my day!

The Workout

Yoga was all I wanted this morning! I decided to roll with Bethenny Frankel for today’s practice (:

This is like the third time I’ve done this video, and I still love it! Everything that she says is so funny! I love that this video shows what a real person she is… She says how hard certain parts of the workout are for her, even though she’s been doing yoga for like twenty years! Totally motivating for me to keep working my butt off with this yoga stuff (:

The Eats

I made breakfast last night and let it sit in the fridge – a Fitnessista breakfast cookie that was calling mahh naaaame!

DSCN0341

A strawberry banana breakfast cookie, nonetheless (: When I was little, my absolute favorite flavor combo was strawberry banana! Yogurt, smoothies, Quaker oatmeal packets – and God help you if you tried to give me anything else. [Nooope. No picky eater here.] More specifically, I wanted strawberry banana Trix yogurt – errrysingle day! My poor parents, having to deal with all that…

Strawberry Banana Breakfast Cookie

Inspired by the Fitnessista

  • 1/3c rolled oats
  • 1T peanut flour
  • 1/2 scoop Sun Warrior
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 3 mashed strawberries
  • topped with leftover banana slices & one more strawb(: YUMMMSSS.

I feel like I totally didn’t do anything with my morning! Like, I finished breakfast, and all of a sudden it was 11:30 and I had to go pick up my brother between his exams! He came home and we watched one episode of True Blood before I had to run him back to school…. One of the many benefits of living a mere two miles away! About halfway through the episode, my tummy started grumblinnn. I loved Carrie’s Luscious Bowl so much last night, I decided to try it again this afternoon!

Ok. So this picture is literally despicable. But you can’t win em all…. plus, the cauliflower was still steaming and it fogged up my camera screen! What am I supposed to do about that?! I guess I just had to go ahead and eat it (;

Tha Mix!

  • 1/4c wheatberries
  • 1/2c chickpeas
  • steamed cauliflower
  • Annie’s Lite Gingerly dressing –I AM SO OBESSED.

After lunch, I suddenly felt like I was running all over the place! I had to run a couple errands, clean up the house, and then make it over to my friend’s by 2:30! The best part is that when I got there, we literally sat around and watched some trashy special on TV – it was like, the fifty most memorable swimsuit moments hahaha. Chelsea Handler was one of the commenters, and OH. MY. GOD. I love her humor. She’s so crude & kinda mean but so funny at the same time!

I left my friend’s by like 3:50 and made sure to have a snack as I was leaving….

DSCN0346

BANANA BREAD LARABAR! This isn’t my favorite flavor [which is weird, cause usually I’m sold on banana anything & everything] but it totally got the job done for today (:

Thursdays are seriously my longest days at work… Always at least four hours, and all my students were talking about how excited they were for the end of school, I was practically throwing myself around the place for their attention! Wore me out pretty quick! So of course, I needed a little help for dinner….

DSCN0348

Whole Foods’ brown rice – dragon vegetable roll! I’m so obsessed with this, there was TONNNS OF AVOCADO. I’m so down. I washed it down with this bad boy:

DSCN0349

Dr. Zevia!!!! New-to-me flaaaavaaaa! Dr. Pepper used to be one of my FAVORITE drinks, like I was absolutely obsessed with it, but never let myself drink it, and this stuff literally rivals it. So yummmaaayyy!

I was still jonesing for somethin’ sweet a little later, so I snagged a couple chocolate-fruit-stuffed dates:

DSCN0350

Two Medjool dates with cocoa powder & fruit spread!

Today felt pretty uneventful… it all just kinda slipped away from me! Oh well, it was worth it!

I thought I would be getting this post up earlier, so I could squeeze in some more Disney action before bed… but now it’s like 11:15 PM… guess not. I’ve got a 9 AM date with hot yoga tomorrow so I wanna get to bed pronto!

Are yall ready for the weekend?! I am!!

Actually, I’ll be working all weekend…. and my life is kinda like a weekend right now… but it’s still so fun to say!

Did you like Disney movies? What was your fave?

I like how I asked these questions in the past tense, like I don’t currently have an obsession with Disney. My favorites are Sleeping Beauty, Hercules, & Cinderella!

What are your thoughts on sushi?

I’ve been loving finding sushi rolls without any fish in them! I totally don’t mind eating fish right now [I’m no perfect vegan!] but I like exploring what’s out there!

See yall on Fryyyyyday (:

Whole Foods Saves the Day!

Hey yall!

Today was sooo nice for me! Since I don’t have to go into classes or my senior project anymore, my dad has been taking my brother to school in the morning, letting me sleep in! Translation: I wake up at 8 instead of 7 (: How is it that I can’t make my body stay asleep any longer than that?! It’s weeeeeird.

This morning, my appetite was acting really strangely. When I woke up, all I wanted was a piece of fruit! I grabbed an apple – and totally didn’t snap a picture – but I knew that would sooo not hold me over, even if my day is pretty open. So I went ahead and sliced up a banana & froze it for a green monster, even though I didn’t really know when I would have it! Around 11, my tummy finally grumbled (two and a half hours on an apple! Who am I?!) and I whipped up this bad boy:

DSCN0256 In the mix!

  • 3/4c almond milk
  • a bazillion handfuls of frozen spinach
  • one sliced frozen banana
  • a handful of TJ’s Very Cherry Berry Mix
  • 1/2t maca powder
  • topping: Vegan Cocoa Sauce (1T Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa + 1 packet Truvia + water to thin)

I don’t know if this shows how big the smoothie was, but it was huuuuge! I somehow managed to get through all of it though. Ohhh the sacrifices I make.

So last night at work, there was this BIIIIG pandemonium since a tornado watch was sweeping through the Cincinnati area, and everyone at the sports center ended up being moved into the lobby! It’s not a big area, and with kids as young as two and a bazillion parents buzzing around, it was more than a little overwhelming! I did a head count of my girls once a minute because I’m obsessive (: One of my friends showed me the weather radar on his phone, and the area where we were was purple! I didn’t even know that purple was on option on the scale!! I was sortakinda panicked, but everything turned out fine! But on the bright side, the weather today is absolutely beautiful! I went outside for a little and read a book for a while spent time in the S-U-N!

After running a couple of urrrrands [errands. nice grammar.] I started to get a little hungwwyy! The solution?

DSCN0258Not the best quality picture. #happens. But this was a meatball sandwich! It was two slices of TJ’s sprouted wheat bread topped with sliced meatless meatballs, also from TJ’s! (Ps, that is probably my favorite meat-replacement product! Soooo good!) Topped with organic ketchup & a side of sahhhweet corn. I.LOVE.SUMMER.

Lunch was suuuper late, and by the time I was hungry for dinner, I was feeling waay lazy. That means that Whole PaycheckFoods came in to save the day! The hot bar presented me with this little gem:

DSCN0262 Sweet+sour tofu, balsamic grilled veggies, and Asian veggies [which actually were too spicy for me! I left emmm] But other than that, dinner was deeeelish.

BUT LOOK WHAT ELSE I FOUND AT WHOLE FOODS:

DSCN0264Cream soda Zevia!!!! Whaaat! #getatme ! Cream soda was one of my favorite drinks before I cut out caffeine [and soda in general] and I was soo excited to see it in the store I almost yelled out loud! Overreact much? But totally worth it (: and then I decided to snap a picture of this:

DSCN0265 My nails right now! I’m so proud that they’re actually painted right now! Usually I chip it all off and then don’t repaint [sup lazy]. The shade is NARS Orgasm [heheheh] and I’m obsessed with it. NBD.

I kinda forgot to snap a pic of the outfit I had on today, but I DID remember the shoes!

DSCN0260a la Steve Madden – toe nail polish is OPI’s Lucky Lucky Lavender. That’s about all I got for the outfit of the day (: Ohhh well!

I’ve got to finish prepping my presentation for my Senior Project Presentation for tomorrow morning! Have a good night everyoneee!

Do you like green monsters?

YES YES YES SI OUI YUUUSS

Do you like shopping for shoes?

Running, flats, wedges, heels, flip flops, whatever… I love em all!

I’ll see yall tomorrow!!
