Happy Monday. Who has the day off? My weekend has certainly been marvelous so far!
Oatmeal! x2. Banana oats topped with strawberries, sun butter, and a dollop of plain yogurt.
An iced chai! I had every intention of spending the day working at a coffeeshop so I got a big chai tea! The only problem was that I for somer reason woke up much too early that morning and could barely keep my eyes open so I left for a nap…whoops. There went my productivity!
Trying a different dining hall for lunch! It was actually really good! They had about 9 types of cream cheese, which looked homemade. I tried the cinnamon raisin, triple berry, basil and olive, and chive and onion.
A dessert party! My sorority had a Valentine’s themed party on Saturday, so I got to dress up and eat delicious things. Fun fact-there are 3 girls in my sorority who seriously want to go to culinary school-let’s just say that we eat well!
A kick butt run! There’s no question I’ve gotten in better shape and faster in the last few months. I did the same run I’ve done a couple of times before-it’s one of my absolutely favorite places to run because it’s SO pretty! There’s a fairly big hill in the middle-the last time I was proud I kept my pace until 11:00 for the hill. I ended up powering up the hill around a 9:00 pace! And it wasn’t death!
A reunion with my best friends from high school! We actually went the same place the same weekend last year! (Sadly, it was the last day before I was sick for 2 months…)
(Excuse my sweaty-just ran self)
But more importantly-the delicious food! We couldn’t decide between sweet or salty, so we got pancakes for the table to share.
Relaxing at home! I spent the day lounging around with these guys and watching the Olympics.
Things are going to get crazy starting tomorrow because I have loads of studying to do and a crazy amount of stuff to do this week!
Homemade chocolate for my family! And heyyy I finally took down the recipe for those interested!
2 T coconut oil
2.5 T maple syrup
1 t vanilla extract
2 T half and half
1/2 c cocoa powder or cacao powder
1. Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup in the microwave, about 30-40 seconds and blend well. Then stir in vanilla.
2. Stir in cocoa powder and half and half (if the half and half is very cold, you may need to heat the mix up a bit).
3. Chill in the fridge on wax paper, or grab a spoon and enjoy!
Visiting my home Crossfit tomorrow morning! Yay!
What did you do this weekend?
