It’s Friday!!! What are your plans for the weekend?
My day started with oats! I haven’t had oatmeal in such a long time!
I made my oats with water then topped them with almond butter, pumpkin butter (Thanks Chelsea!) and walnuts. YUM!
Of course I shared them with J 😉
The I made another favorite that I haven’t made in a long time – quinoa!
YUM! I love quinoa! I eat it plain as I love the nutty flavor…. mmmmmmmm!
And what was for lunch?
I warmed up my leftover veggies from last night, added a spoonful of pesto (I have been on a pesto kick this week!) and quinoa! What a great bowl of goodness!
J and I decided not to waste the entire day in the house so we took a trip to visit my aunt Jeri AKA Aunti Jayco! I love this woman! When I was younger I couldn’t say Jeri so I called her Jayco – cute, huh!
She’s beautiful, fun, STRONG!, LOVES wine and is such a kick in the pants to be around! It was my first time visiting her new place so I was really excited to see it. ADORABLE! I wish I would have taken some pictures. I love it! We are going to go wine tasting soon – I cannot wait. Hopefully my fun-loving cousin, her daughter, can go with us. Crazy times, I tell you!
I was a little hungry when J and I arrived back home so I made a piece of toast with some almond butter to hold me over until gym time.
The gym was great – very sweaty! I did 4.5 miles on the treadmill running at a 9 minute mile pace for two miles and a 10 minute pace for the other two, with a cool down of 5 minutes. Then I hit the stairs for 15 minutes. I am up to level 14 and it was was easy! My legs have gotten incredibly strong since I have been running. I was very excited tonight! =) The some stretching and core work.
I blended up an amazing drink when I got home. Frozen berries, a few peach slices, almond milk and an apple.
I also had a handful of pistachios and some of this:
It’s not my favorite but it works in a pinch. 😉
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
PS – I am going to miss him! =( So sad!
