If it makes you happy

I have had a pretty wonderful Spring Break. No I didn’t jet off to some place warm (we got 10in of snow at school) or really do anything all that exciting, but I did relax and enjoy myself. I had some delicious eats and hung out with some awesome friends and family. It is really what I needed after the past few weeks. I’d say I’m pretty happy with my spring break.

 

Breakfast looked like this most days:

Oiko's Super Fruits Greek Yogurt with cereal mix <-- new fav flavor

Oiko's Honey Greek Yogurt with blackberries and cashews

Plain greek yogurt w/ peach activia yogurt, blueberries, Chia seeds, and Kashi GoLean cereal <-- new fav breakfast combo!

 

I love all the possible yogurt mix-in’s when I go home! I also love that I can work out how I want, when I want because I don’t have super early classes! I enjoyed several runs, strength training sessions, and I even did yoga for the first time in years!

I loved it! I dove right into the intermediate/advanced while I totally should have started with the beginner/intermediate yoga is hard! Props to all of you who do it daily or almost daily, that is awesome! I’ve never had the patience for yoga… People are always telling me to do¬† yoga, that it would be good for me. I guess what they are really saying is you need to calm down… I am a very go, go, go type person hence why I love running and cardio. But I have to say I really enjoyed the yoga and how it made my body feel this time around.

I’ve been trying to mix some strength training and stretching into my normal routine, because of an injury I’ve had for about a year now. Everyone I have gone to says I have a strength imbalance from one side to the other and I am really tight after workouts. SO I’ve been focusing on strengthening my muscles and stretching em all out. I am definitely going to be doing more yoga in the future!

 

Lunch looked like this most days:


Sandwich thin w/ hummus, spinach, and red peppers

Peanut butter and Jelly w/ carrots, celery dipped in Kalamata olive hummus and Tabbouleh

 

I am seriously in love with Trader Joe’s Kalamata olive hummus, then I bought some of their tabbouleh and I am in love with the combination of the two! It is soooo fresh tasting! I think some Tabbouleh making is in my future! I can’t find it pre-made anywhere at school, but hey I’m up to it!

Unfortunately Dinners went un-photographed all week long. I had some good eats too which is sad I can’t share them with you. But what I can share with you is this:

 

Make. These. NOW! They are Jess’s Bourbon Pecan Pie Brownies. DELICIOUS! I’ve been pairing them with some slow churned Edy’s chocolate ice cream. Perfection. They are super rich, but O so gooey and delicious.

Sadly those are the only thing I made this break, but I feel like I might just be in the kitchen tomorrow. What a great way to end spring break huh? I’d say I’m pretty happy with how my break went.

 

What makes you happy?

Good food, time to work out when and how I want, and good time with friends!

 

What are you digging for breakfast or lunch these days?

  1. I am the EXACT same way with yoga! I’m a runner/biker/hiker cardio junkie. I don’t have the patience for yoga…but I think that means I need it even worse! Glad spring break was so nice :)
