Yesterday, I did exactly what I said I would! I went over to the gym and rode the bike for 30 minutes on levels 5-7, my speed averaged in the 80’s (rpms) throughout most of it. It was a nice pace and I read my article, which was more scientific than I’d hoped it would be. I think when it comes to positive/negative thoughts and mental health, I like the more philosophical side of things. But it was an interesting read, nonetheless. The workout, while quick, worked up a sweat and I certainly felt tired in the legs the rest of the night. So I’m glad I did it!
I re-tried the Oikos honey yogurt yesterday and I have to say…this one is not one of my favorites. I think I have come to prefer the taste of the plain and vanilla and I think the honey just doesn’t taste like it would if I put honey in it myself. So I will just stick to those from now on, with the occasional blueberry of course 😉 I topped yesterday’s selection with some See Sarah Eat granola. Oh, and I guess you can see, yes I did need my afternoon snack, haha.
We had quite an interesting smorgasbord at girl’s night last night. Sometimes we end up with an abundance of vegetables so everyone kind of went anti-veggie for a night, haha. Everything was very good though: Margie made tofu and this really sweet ‘n spicy grapefruit-onion-tomato-jalapeno salsa with cilantro and brought some Chik’n nuggets, so I tried two. Courtney made sweet potato fries which I totally prefer over any other fry any day. And Beth brought chips & queso which also hit the spot. So, it may look weird, but everything tasted great 🙂
The Chik’n nuggets were actually pretty good but the calorie count per serving is kind of high (190 for 4 nuggets) so I only had two. I went back for more chips, obviously. We all know me and tortilla chips 😉
I was in charge of dessert and I purchased a new pudding that I thought might help me reintroduce it into my diet while fitting my Crap Free criteria!
I was not a fan of the no sugar added rice pudding (although I’m sure I could’ve added honey or something) but this one was AWESOME! I also see that they have a ton more flavors (including green tea chai!) so I’m hoping I can find more of these around town. I picked this package up from Walmart for the same price as a 6-pack of Jello pudding ($2.25), however, I’d much rather spend a little more (money-wise and calorie-wise) on a product with much better ingredients that left me completely satisfied!
I had purchased some strawberries at Whole Foods over the weekend, so we had those as a topper…I also had some spicy cinnamon tea which you see in the background. Courtney has the best tea stash, I’m constantly raiding it, haha.
Okay, so…I finally saw “Twilight”. I think even though I’m only a few years older than the bloggers I read who LOVE this movie, I still didn’t get it. I haven’t read the book (I do plan to though, over the summer when classes let out), and I did think the movie was good, but as far as finding anyone hot, well, nope. Its okay, I’m sure I find some dudes hot that would make some of you girls gag, haha.
So, while we’re on the subject…who are your “Celebrity Hotties”? Let’s narrow it down to Top 5, shall we?
1. John Rzeznik, lead singer of the Goo Goo Dolls (my favorite band of all-time since ’93)
2. Sully Erna, lead singer of Godsmack (another favorite band)
I’m hoping at least you Boston peeps have heard of them, haha!
3. Adam Levine, lead singer of Maroon 5 (I think I have a trend, did I mention I married a singer too?)
4. Ryan Reynolds, actor
5. Forrest Griffin, UFC fighter (former light heavyweight champion and winner of the 1st season of Ultimate Fighter)
There are many others too…honestly, I think I find something cute about everybody, especially if they have a really good personality too. There are some real hot jerks out there that I just don’t find hot because of them being a jerk. I like good people!
Anywho, I had my fun for the day, can’t wait to see yours!
Happy Thursday 🙂
