Tomorrow is Friday and I have the weekend off of yoga teacher training. Brandon and I have no plans so I am looking forward to my first relaxing weekend at home in a month! Happiness…
I’m celebrating with a fun baking project and you might want to read to the end of the post to find out more!
It took every ounce of motivation that I had to get up at 5:15 a.m. and go to ashtanga this morning. It was totally worth it. I had a beautiful practice that left me with the warm fuzzy “I love yoga and am so grateful for my practice” feeling. I know, I know…such a yoga nerd.
Breakfast was apple cinnamon oatmeal at my desk and I came home for lunch.
Trader Joe’s veggie burger with mashed avocado, spinach, sprouts and cheddar on Great Harvest Honey Whole Wheat. Carrots, grapes and strawberries on the side.
I was pretty hungry all day today. I’m not really sure why but since I was teaching BodyPump tonight, I made sure to get a good snack in.
I had Liberte goat milk yogurt for the first time and it was really good. So creamy and not too sweet.
I topped it with a little bit of granola and almonds. I will definitely be purchasing this yogurt again.
I taught BodyPump after work and we had a full house – 40 hard working, fun members! There was tons of energy in the room. I love teaching group exercise!
Brandon requested Chicken Chili for dinner tonight. He said he really wanted to get in one last chili night before Spring is here in full force. I have a very strict rule about not making “winter” foods when the weather is warm!
Salad and cornbread on the side.
It was a delicious dinner but I am really looking forward to warm weather foods, grilling and eating outside. I’m ready to wrap up Winter 2011.
So…let’s get to the fun part! I posted earlier that I participated Katie’s online bake sale today to help her raise funds for a service trip to Nicaragua. The bake sale is over and was a huge success! I am going to be baking Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars this weekend for the winner and while I’m in the kitchen I’m going to bake an extra batch for a Peanut Butter Runner reader!
It’s no secret that Brandon and I love dessert so if you’d like to enter for a chance to win a batch of my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars, leave a comment telling me about a dessert that you love to make. I’ll pick a winner at random. I will mail the bars out to the winner on Monday. You have until noon (EST) on Sunday to enter. I will ship anywhere in the U.S.
And just for fun, Brandon is going to pick one dessert that he wants me to make at home and I will feature that recipe on the blog so please share recipes! (This is not required, just encouraged.)
