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!

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?

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!

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!

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

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!

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

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?
