sunday shenanigans

1. Remember that mouse that was living in our dorm? Yeah. It’s gone. Vegans/animal lovers…don’t hate me. It was so cute. But it was eating my popcorn so that little guy had to go. Now I just hope he didn’t have any friends…or babies. 

2. I have been obsessed with protein cakes lately. I used to eat them a lot over the summer, but since coming to college, I never had eggs or baking powder. But now that I have those ingredients, I have been eating them likes it’s my job. My favorite way is to slice some bananas and top it with some peanut butter. And if I’m feeling really adventurous, I add a dark chocolate square to the middle. Mmmmm.

3. I finished week 1 one of Jamie Eason’s 12 week trainer. My whole body hurts. In a good way though. I can already feel myself getting stronger and I love it. 

4. I got a package in the mail from Lollihop on Friday. It’s like a health freak’s dream basically. In the box: Food Should Taste Good Blue Corn Chips, Somersault Sea Salt Snacks, Popcorners Kettle Chips, Bakery on Main Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bar, Larabar Cashew Cookie, Gnu Banana Walnut Fiber Bar, Kind Bar Fruit and Nut,  Linwoods Flaxseed Cocoa and Berries, Bella Viva Dried Cherries. Right away, I ripped open the bag of Popcorners kettle chips. Ohmygoodness. These were so good…as in I need to go to the store and get a bag (or 50). Next time my mom wants to send me a care package, I’m just gonna tell her to send me a Lollihop package. That’s the way to go.

5. I bought my roommate’s Christmas gift. It’s a Justin Bieber toothbrush. And it sings. What more could a college kid want?**

6. I register for classes in a week and I’m seriously dreading it. Since I’m a freshman, I am going to get some of the last picks. So basically I am going to take whatever class other people don’t want. They better not leave me with Spanish.

7. I went to TJ Maxx yesterday to make a return and I thought, “Hey, why not go look at the food section to see if they have Popcorners chips??” (See number 4). As I was walking to the back of the store, I was betting they wouldn’t have them. Then all of a sudden, it was as if light was shining on a shelf. There were the chips…one lonely bag of chips. Heck yes. I did a little happy dance then was on my way. And now they’re all gone. Booo.

8. Salsa + Eggs + Oatmeal = an oddly delicious combination. I’m not sure what compelled me to try this but I’m glad I did. Here’s what my breakfast was yesterday: 1 egg + 3 eggs whites (cooked in the microwave), oatmeal (cooked in the microwave with water), salsa, and nutritional yeast. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it. (And yes. I have a Christmas tablecloth already. Don’t look at me that way.)

9. If you follow me on Pinterest, you know that I have basically planned my entire wedding out. I mean, it’s the 21st century. Why dream of your wedding in your head when you can do it on the computer? While I was at the gym today, I stared with amazement at my phone case and nail polish color. Why? Because they’re totally going to be the colors of my wedding.

I’m obsessed. (The case is from Uncommon and the nail polish is Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet.) (And yes. I have sparkles on only one nail.)

10. I fly home on Tuesday. And that means I get to see this adorable face very, very soon.

I AM SO EXCITED!

**Disclaimer: I am not a fan of Justin Bieber.

 

Day 9 of the 30 day photo challenge…

Inspiring Person: my mom. No if’s, and’s, or but’s.

  2. Hello!! I just finished week 1 of the trainier as well and I am SORE too!!!:) It will be fun to do it along with you. Be sure to keep up the updates and inspiration!!:)

  3. I love it when you really want something from a store and you manage to get the last of it! That happened to me yesterday – I got the last 2 vanilla Greek yogurts at the grocery store and it totally made my day. 😀

    That box from Lollihop is amazing! I love Food Should Taste Good chips.

  4. I do the same thing with my nails when I paint them! Well actually I paint just one a different color since I heard awhile back that it was a trend. I’ve never seen anyone else do it but I still think it looks cool.

    And yay for going home! I came home on Friday and I’ve been loving it so far!

    • Protein cakes are kind of like individual cakes made in the microwave but it has lots of protein in it. Here’s the recipe:

      -15 grams of protein powder (half a scoop)
      -1 tbsp 100% cocoa powder
      -1/4 tsp baking powder
      -2 packets stevia (or whatever sweetneer you prefer)
      -1 tbsp pumpkin or applesauce
      -3 tbsp liquid egg whites (or 1 egg white)

      So you mix all the ingredients together in a mug and microwave for a minute. It’s super easy and a great way to get protein. They’re especially good in dorms 🙂 So once it’s done in the microwave, you can top it with whatever you want. I highly recommend peanut butter.

  5. KITTY!!! Sorry, I love kitties. Mine does not love me right now for some reason which isn’t nice since I didn’t get to see her for 4 1/2 days!
    Shenanigans = best word ever. Next to supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

  6. yayy congrats on week one of Jamie Eason! You should totally do before and after pics! I’m totallly gonna have to make some protein pancakes too, those are sounding pretty delicious. AAnnd yeah…wedding “planning”…totally right with you there! When I was younger I made a list of all the girls I wanted to be in my wedding (I’m only still friends with one of them hahaha) and drew pictures of my dress…now I just need to like, maybe start dating someone hahahaha. Yay for going home! one more day for you!
