Skin is coming along. I've been pretty consistent with my routine. I've even been taking care of the skin on my body too. I feel like my face looks better. But whenever I take a picture it doesn't look that great.
|Week 4...Nice shot of a new little pimple!|
I'm getting kind of frustrated and I've been thinking about going to the dermatologist. Hopefully the vitamins and my regimen will make a difference soon. I think quitting will help too.
Today was pretty productive. Brunch with mom, her friend, and my husband (no pics...I have to get better).
I also made some of Gina's Amaze-balls!
2 Tbsp. almond butter
2 Tbsp. unsweetened coconut
1 Tbsp. honey
1 packet chocolate rice protein
a pinch of sea salt, Stevia, and cinnamon
1 Tbsp. dark chocolate chips
They were super yum! I'm kinda disappointed that they are only 5 grams of protein (seems kind of low for protein balls)...but I am pleasantly surprised that they are only 112 calories...and REALLY good!
The first time that I tried almond butter, I wasn't a fan. But I have definitely acquired the taste! I'm excited about trying sunflower butter next!
I also made some PMS Banana, yogurt and walnut muffins. I used some super ripe bananas and some light agave that I found at Kroger. They are not super sweet, but sweet enough. I think that they will be a good addition to my vanilla Greek yogurt snack this week.
I also made some Tuna...with Avocado, Yogurt and Celery
2 3 oz. cans of solid tuna
1/2 avocado (pureed)
2 celery stalks
1 Tbsp. green onions, chopped
1 Tbsp. Greek yogurt
1 tsp. dijon mustard
salt and pepper, some cayenne and garlic powder
Makes 2 very yummy servings!:)
|This is what I had to clean up after my afternoon of cooking...I'm a messy cook!|
This place is extra special because the staff is awesome! They know us at this point...and we have nicknames for all of the employees ("Bout Business," "Over It," "Mama," "Kinky Curly"...we love them all!) It's also special because this is the place where my husband proposed:)
Every year, the Border gives away t-shirts on Cinco de Mayo!
|2011 Border Shirts!!!|
Still counting down until the end of the school year. Last week was particularly trying. Every year around this time, it seems that everyone in the building loses their minds...the kids, the faculty, the staff AND the administration. The morale at the school is super low...and mine may be even lower. It is so good that summer will be here in 12 days.
I'm also getting excited about YOGA SUMMER 2011. I was debating between two different yoga places...my old studio, Atlanta Hot Yoga and Red Hot Yoga, a new place that just opened 8 or 9 months ago. I decided to go to RHY...I've never been there, but it is owned by Bethany, my favorite yoga instructor from AHY (and I l-o-v-e her!!!). Three times a week, I will be doing downward dog this summer. I bought a 5 day pass from Living Social a month ago...and I plan to buy a 20 class pass this summer. So excited!!!!!!
Living Social has had a lot of great deals recently. I just purchased one month unlimited boot camp at BodyProud Fitness. It was only $29 (It's usually $89!...and you get a fitness consultation). I'm going to start in June...twice/week. I hope I like it!
I'm also going to buy a pass (today) to this place called Mandala Yoga. The deal is 20 fitness classes for $20 (it's usually $200!!! You cannot beat that!) They offer Zumba at this place and if I just go two or three times, I think that I will have gotten my money's worth. I'll probably start that after the honeymoon!
Okay...I need to fight these SNB (SNB = Sunday Night Blues; They come every Sunday around 5 or 6 pm...sometimes earlier depending how much I am dreading the impending week.) Bye for now.
