I'm not just crazy at work, I've got my organic chem final in two weeks. Eek!! I'm trying to start early and avoid the major cram sessions that I usually ended up doing in university. It's good practice as I will not be cramming for ND school.
This is a whole different ball game. People's HEALTH are at stake and so I really need to get into a habit and a studying flow that works for me. I have a few things in mind already and so once it gets closer ( only 193 days!!! Yes, I checked:) to the start I'll lay out my plan!
Alrighty so today I wanted to share some food goodies with you and have a chat about my blog content.
Wa-bam!! Yes, this thing is actually edible! It's a breakfast cookie from the lovely fitnessista. This breakfast rocked my world. You're probably thinking, that big blob got your all riled up? Why yes, it's true.
I love the consistency (you know that's a big deal) and how customizable it is. Oh and it's delish too:)
My cookie :
1/3 cup buckwheat groats, ground into a flour
1 full scoop chocolate hemp protein powder
1/4 cup almond milk
1 tbl raisins
1 tbl chia seeds
I'm excited to try out different combos! Have you ever made Gina's breakfast cookie?
The filling had almond butter, chia seeds, bee pollen, half scoop protein powder, unsweetened coconut. These were divine.
I know Nelly made some chocolate love too. Hi doll!!
The above has kale, cucumber, peppers, peas, avo, chickpeas, pickled beets, sauerkraut, and left over roasted veggies. I topped it off with an interesting dressing, if you want to call it that.
There you have it, a sugar-free dessert to try out this weekend!! I guarantee you will love it:)
Now for some green!!
What's that under those paper towels?
Or under the grow light at work:)
I work in the horticulture industry just in case you were wondering!
Wheatgrass babies!!! I am so ready for some fresh wheatgrass juice.
I did a post on the easy process to grow your own wheatgrass..no grow light required! Check it out!
PS I am quite amazed at the difference in growth between the wheatgrass grown under natural light (sunlight) versus the grow lamps. The wheatgrass under the grow lamps is double the size to that of the natural light babies. Interesting hey?
Watching these sprouts take off has me itching to start gardening again! Or maybe it's all the seeds we just received for the garden at work.
All organic or heirloom seeds...sigh:)
This Weeks Goal
I've been bodyrockin' this week and it's been fun. Yet I feel sometimes that it's not enough. I don't have the strength that Zuzana and so I can't get in a ton of reps. I know it is still rocking my body pretty hard but I think the workouts need to be included along with a resistance program that uses some weights. That's my opinion, anyways. Also I'm a little nervous during her workouts as there is a lot of jumping and it's a lot of impact on my knees. I've been pretty good lately but a couple months back when I was only doing bodyrock workouts consistently for weeks my left knee starting going out again. When I was doing resistance training with weights along with HIIT, I rarely had an incident. So, I think the bodyrock workouts aren't a good workout for me to do everyday. But they definitely will be in my workout arsenal.
Besides that I've been enjoying my week and have discovered one of my favorite exercise combos to date:
Rollover Comando pushups
I'm amazed at how much stronger I am now compared to a few months ago. Progress, baby!!
Okay I want to be completely honest, I feel like I've been just going with the motions and have not really pushed my little blog to the place where I envisioned it to go. I'm not talking about being "famous" on the sphere, I'm talking about creating content that is more than my weekend or endless salad combos. I want conversation, I want to share new things with you that I learn, talk more about issues that I'm truly passionate about (besides food that is:). I know right now it's a crazy busy time for me but in a few weeks my exam will be over and work will have settled down into a more manageable pace.
So watch out folks, I'm going to be digging a little deeper in regards to content and getting my creative juices flowing again. It will always be fun though because that's the way I want it to be!
PS Katie shared this super cool website today on her blog..so much fun! It's called Wordle. Seriously..you have to check it out. I've been looking for something like this as wall art using my wedding vows:)
Here's mine after I entered in my blog URL:
Fun hey? I used "organic carrot" for the colors and "grilled cheese BTN" for the font! I see myself spending some quality time on this site for sure:) Yes, it's free folks!
Love you guys!!
Hope you have a rocking weekend and do tons of fun stuff.
I'm off to visit my grams and some other family. Then Saturday is all business, chemistry business that is. Sunday I have a baby shower to go to but I'm sure I'll be fitting in some fun stuff in between:)
It's March next week...yay!!!
