Simple Saturdays

I had been craving a bagel all week and it was once again the first thing on my mind when I woke up this morning. I decided that Saturday morning bagel and coffee sounded nice so off I went, in all my bed head glory, to pick up a bagel.

I got a honey grain bagel and brought it home to toast and top. I did one side with cream cheese and the other with jam. It was as good as I hoped!

True to my usual Saturday routine, I hit up the farmers market after a yoga class. I was so excited to see cherries and blackberries at todays market.

For some reason the farmers market always makes me crave a salad for lunch. Mixed greens, spinach, cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, toasted walnuts, tempeh, blue cheese, avocado and dried cranberries with balsamic vinaigrette.

Washed down with this new (to me) sparkling water that I picked up at the grocery a few days ago. Love the bubbles.

I went into the gym for a couple of hours this afternoon to get some work done. There is SO much to do in preparation of next week’s opening of our second location. While I was there I ate a Picky Bar that one of the members left on my desk for me to try after reading about how much I liked Hungry Bars. I liked the Picky Bars. They are more Larabar-esque. They are vegan, gluten and dairy free and every bar has 198 calories, 6g fat, 28g carbohydrate, 7g protein and 2-3g of soluble fiber.

I am squeezing in some fun today too. I had coffee with a friend this afternoon and we spent a long time chatting and catching up. Now I’m off for a bowling outing. Wish me luck because I am a terrible, terrible bowler. It’s seriously embarrassing! 🙂

Bowling…love it or hate it? I still enjoy it even though I’m so bad at it. I just laugh at myself.

    I like bowling as long as its not at one of those grimy alleys. Ickkkk and the whole wearing the shoes kind of creeps me out. Otherwise I enjoy it!

    Those Picky Bars sound good! I will have to try them. UGGG – bowling. I am terrible and don’t mind being really bad at it, but it is a little embarrassing. Hey, you are good at so many other things – it all works out.:)

    Enjoy your weekend!

    I’m pretty sure the last time I went bowling was in high school gym class! Don’t forget to bring your own socks 😉

    That salad looks so good! I’m on the fence about bowling… it’s fun, but I grew up in a small town and bowling was just about the only thing to do besides going to a movie on a Friday night, so I think I just wore it out growing up haha. Hope you had a great night! 🙂

    I just bowled recently for the first time in about a decade and I was SO bad! I’ve been looking forward to doing it for a while and thought it would be a blast … I was just so bad it was embarrassing.

    Ahhhh, eating something that you just really have a hankering for like that is oh so satisfying! I think it’s awesome too that you just craved a big ol’ salad after cuz there’s balancing out that bagel without feeling like you had to to make up for it! Our bodies are funny like that–they know what they need! 🙂 And that salad looks delish, btw!

    SUCK at bowling. And honestly, it’s not really all that fun to me – not sure if that’s b/c I’m so bad or if it’s just not a fun activity to me… I mean, I’ll do it if my arm is seriously twisted, but in general I would choose just about anything else over bowling. I’m even bad at Wii bowling! 🙂 You are a good sport!

    It’s so funny you posted this because I also went bowling yesterday. I am awful (my first game I bowled a 26)!!!! But after a couple beers I was up to bowling 100…I had stopped over thinking it and was just having a good time. Actually looking forward to doing it again soon!

    We actually don’t even have a bowling alley where I live! Crazy. They are building one though, but I get really competitive so not sure if I like it that much, I get a little intense 😉 Now you’ve got my craving a big salad! Yum.
