How did the week treat you? Hopefully, it wasn’t too rough 🙂
As I’m writing this post, I’m realizing how quickly the week flew by and that I really didn’t take that many pictures (oops!). It was my first week back in classes for the spring semester, so my mind was a little all over the place.
Remember last week how I said I was going to take another ski lesson and then on Monday I posted about snowshoeing? Well, I was unable to ski because it was a blackout date on our ski pass but tomorrow I actually am taking my second ski lesson of the season…so wish me luck! After a day of skiing the plan is to come home, enjoy a new-to-us crockpot recipe, finish the last episode of Making a Murderer, and I think I’m going to test a recipe to share with you guys in the near future. Today, I am actually going to run around and get errands and things done because I was able to turn in all my assignments for the week already (woo!). Feels good to start the first week off right!
Now, let’s share a little five things friday….
Five Things I Ate:
Smoothie bowls! On Tuesday morning, Marisa and I got together for a smoothie bowl date. It was seriously the BEST way to start the day, and the smoothie bowl tasted amazing!
I love this meal not only for it’s flavor, but because there are usually leftover meatballs that can be used for easy lunches or quick dinners later in the week.
This delicious lunch salad! I made a super tasty homemade salad dressing this week (I’ll share the recipe soon!) and I feel like I want to eat it on all.the.things 🙂 This salad has romaine, spinach, a ton of roasted veggies (brussels sprouts, carrots, parsnips, rutabaga, zucchini), cucumber, tomato, and some of the leftover meatballs I mentioned above.
Warm oatmeal bowls. My breakfasts have been either super cold smoothie bowls or super hot oat bowls this morning. Even though they are complete opposites I am totally loving both.
Vin/Yin Yoga (a super relaxing class we did right before bed)
Five Things Making Me Happy:
This house and ALL of it’s Christmas lights (that are still up!!) I feel like the photo doesn’t even do the house justice….there are a TON of lights on that house!
The Powerball…ok so we did NOT win, but Brian and I had a lot of fun dreaming about what our life would be like with all that money! 😉
Essential oils! I have started putting them in daily and I absolutely ADORE them!! There are a ton of recipes on the NOW website, but I’m wondering if any of you have “recipes” that you want to share! I’d love to hear them.
Getting through my first week of the semester. Now that I have it under my belt I feel like it’s go time and I’m ready to be super focused and get through these next few months.
Being in a clinical setting! This semester, the lab portion of one of my classes is actually completed outside of the classroom alongside an actual dietitian. I am spending my time at an obesity weight loss clinic and had my first session there on Tuesday. I really loved my first experience and can’t wait to learn even more.
