Happy 4th of July to all U.S. residents out there! If you’re not from the U.S. of A, then happy WIAW. Both are good days nonetheless. My plans for this fabulous holiday? Well I worked this morning and now I plan on spending the night at home with the family. I know, I know. Party animal right here!
Let’s start with the fun, shall we?
I’ve been hitting up the pool. This was last week because weather here lately has been gloomy. What’s up with that??
I bought “Fifty Shades of Grey” the other day. I’m only one chapter in and so far it’s PG rated. That probably won’t last long though.
Pretty Little Liars wasn’t on last night…this is not fun. Like at all. I just felt like it needed to be brought to people’s attention.
Speaking of fun, I am SO doing this…
Now onto the fitness!
I’ve actually been running lately! Running has taken a serious back seat in my life because I really wasn’t having fun with it anymore. But I’ve run these past couple of days. Small distances, but runs nonetheless.
Then I went to the gym yesterday to do some tricep/chest work after not lifting for about a week. Oye. Now I’m sore.
Onto the main attraction, food!
Steamed broccoli, tempeh meatballs, tomato sauce, and nooch
My favorite breakfast at the moment: any veggie I can find in the fridge, egg whites, avocado, and sriracha
Who needs oats in a jar when you have a parfait in a jar? PIAJ. It has a nice ring to it. Greek yogurt, a peach, and some justin’s honey pb
Best. Sandwich. Ever. From Whole Foods (obvi). Daiya cheese, chicken, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, carrots, onion, avocado, on a whole wheat roll.
Oh look! More of my favorite breakfast.
Free caesar salad at work. One of the perks of making friends with the cooks.
Overly priced iced tea at the mall: chai peach.
Breakfast for momma’s birthday! Please tell me you’ve been to Original Pancake house. Not IHOP. Don’t even compare the two. It’s one of my all time favorite places, for sure. I got the two by four: 2 eggs and pancakes. Poached eggs and pumpkin pancakes to be exact. Because, you know, nothing screams summer like pumpkin.
Eating a bell pepper like a boss.
Now I shall leave you with my favorite song at the moment: Saving Amy by Brantley Gilbert. It’s super sad but I can’t stop listening to it. What is wrong with me?! Oh yeah…a lot.
What are/were your plans for the fourth of July?
Have you read “Fifty Shades of Grey?” Thoughts?
What’s your favorite song at the moment? Bonus points if it’s country.
