Hi all – as usual, shit’s been cray up in here. Things to do after work each night which basically makes each day run into the next. What can I say? The life of a busy NYC girl. Speaking of NYC life, my room mate Britt and I will be doing another video in the next week or so speaking to NYC related thangs so get ready
I wanted to type up a ‘What I Ate Wednesday’ post today since I haven’t been able to participate for a few weeks. It’s lacking a little, but still, you can get the feel of what I’ve been eating/what’s been going on! Thanks as always to Jenn for throwing this shin-dig together
This past Sunday evening, my parents and I (my parents are living in the city for the next few months for those of you who don’t already know) had some great snacks that I put together while watching the Golden Globes. Cheese, carrots, tzatziki dip, prosciutto, and crackers were the main features. It was a lot of fun! I have to say my favorite dresses were Jessica Alba’s, Kerry Washington, and Kate Hudson. They all oozed glamour, sex appeal, and femininity. Perfect combination!
Aside from snacking here and there, I’ve been trying to be really good about eating more fruits and vegetables to cleanse myself out a little. Instead of having a juice every few weeks, I’ve been having about 4-5 juices a week and also including lemon in my water, spinach in about everything, and eating citrus fruits as much as possible. I’ve definitely been feeling the benefits.
Working out has picked up a bit. I completed a challenging Tone It Up workout at the gym yesterday morning before work and have my trampoline class tonight! Gotta switch it up sometimes to see results! So a lot of what I have been eating (aside from occasional treats) has been egg whites, tofu, veggies, fruit/veggie juices, almonds, and chocolate covered blueberries/cranberries. I can’t wean myself off coffee because… well basically I don’t want to.
To be honest, I have my birthday night next Saturday and I want to look great in the dress I’ve picked out. I’m not being too hard on myself, trust me, but my dress is kind of… shall we say… sexy and slightly revealing so I want to be in tip top shape
I’ve also been noshing on some great products that Cascadian Farm sent me. Honestly guys, this is one of my favorite companies. Their food is so consistent, tasty, and filling. I would love to visit their head quarters at some point in my life to see the production and how they figure out what to bring to the market!
I love having the crunchy granola bars on hand to munch on before a workout or to have whenever I am feeling hungry! They’re delicious and definitely satisfying. The granola is also out of control when it comes to flavor and I love sprinkling it on anything from yogurt to oatmeal. The granola on its own is just plain perfection, too!
So that’s kind of what I’ve been up to in these parts! After work, like I said, I’ll be hopping on over to my trampoline class which should be great. Um, and my latest TV show obsession, Washington Heights, is on tonight sooooo yeah I’ll be watching that right after. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
Question: Do you have any tips for dropping a pound or two or leaning up? What are some of your little fixes? I need more ideas!
