i shall call him… mini me
Good Morning! Got the morning started on the right food when I checked my email and saw that I had won one of The Gourmet Foodie’s box of chocolate truffles! I won the Torn Ranch wine truffles, and can’t wait to give those goodies a try! Thanks so much Gourmet Foodie!
Last night it felt great to relax. I have gotten pretty adjusted to the routine of going home straight after work and then going straight to bikram. It pretty much takes my entire night up, and as soon as i get home i eat then sleep. It was nice being able to have a couple of hours to myself to do absolutely nothing. That being said, I did do absolutely nothing. No yoga, no nothing. I thought it was a well deserved break. For the past 2 weeks, I have made 6 out of 7 days to bikram. My body enjoyed the rest.
My mom had made Spanakopita. This is always a nice treat. I tried to cut it into cute little triangles but that didn’t really work ha. I had a good sized piece with a side salad that i threw some chickpeas and a little feta into. Dessert was half a date with a smidge of barney butter.
I was talking to my sister last night and she’s coming home this friday for her spring break. I’m trying to talk her into getting the 10 day bikram pass. I hope she does it 🙂 it will be so nice to have someone to go with and i always love spending time with her.
I’ve got some fun weekends planned that are getting me through the work week! This weekend my sister is coming home and Chase is coming to visit, the weekend after i’m visiting my bf Brittany in NYC, the next weekend visiting Chase in NY, and then the following weekend going back to Salisbury to visit some friends and to see one of the big lacrosse games. Nice month of weekends planned! sooo excited 🙂
This morning I had 2 sets of Vans mini waffles. I have a slight obsession with all things miniature. I think theyre so cute and will eat anything that is pint sized 🙂 I had some sliced strawberries on the side and some agave to dip the waffles in. Oh, and a mini piece of pumpkin bread.
I’ve decided this weekend i’m going to make one of the cakes in Vegan with a Vengeance. Its the carrot cake with macadamia and coconut icing! I don’t know the last time i’ve actually baked a 2 layer cake, so this will be a fun little experiment and im’ hoping the end result is tastayy. can’t imagine it won’t be comign from this cookbook.
With starting a new month, I always like to have a goal to work towards. Last month it was getting more into yoga, and I accomplished that! This month I want to balance my yoga with running so that I can get ready for my couple races coming up. I’m not a fast runner at all. My race goals are to complete the runs. The 10k is going to be my furthest distance ever ran, so my one and only goal is to complete it. May 31, I am going to sign up for the Annapolis 10k and my goal for that race is to beat my time in my previous 10k. I’m taking gradual steps here and can’t wait to feel amazing when I cross the finish line!! Thanks so much guys for your ongoing support and words that always lift me up. Its such a great feeling to have people behind you rooting for you the whole way. ❤
