Good morning and happy Friday!

Guys, I can’t explain how excited I am that it is Friday.  I don’t have any studying to do this weekend (completed all of my finals!!) so I am dedicating time to the blog (yay!) and organizing/deep cleaning my apartment.  That may not sound like the most fun, but I’m actually pretty pumped about it 🙂

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend too!!!!

five things friday

Five Things I Ate:

  • Sauteed spinach and chicken

The doctor and Kate recommended that I reduce the amount of fiber in my diet and eat more cooked rather than raw vegetables to see if that helps with my tummy troubles (yes, I’m still having issues).  I’m totally new to this whole “hot lunch” thing because I have ALWAYS been a salad/raw veggies kind of girl for lunches.  If you have any fav “hot lunch” recipes, shoot them my way! 🙂



  • Low FODMAP fish tacos with pineapple salsa 🙂  Can’t wait to share the deets on this one with ya soon!

  • Teach Bodypump
  • Boot Camp
  • Outdoor run
  • Tabata

Five Things Making Me Happy:

  • Being done with my prerequisites for my RD program.  Seriously, this is a HUGE weight lifted off of my shoulders and I am so happy!!! I have time off from school from now until June 8 so I am really focusing on doing things for “me” like reading cook books, going on super long walks with Bernie, going to the library, painting my nails, organizing the house, reading for pleasure, and all of those other things that I feel slightly guilty doing when I have a test coming up.

  • Week night date night!  Wednesday night, Brian and I went to see the movie Insurgent (from the Divergent series).  We read the first book a while back and then read the second but got a little lost and stopped somewhere in the middle of the third.  As much as I love the Hunger Games, for some reason this series just didn’t do it for me.  The movie was ok and I’m glad we saw it, it’s just not my fav.

  • Bernie is totally a veggie dog!! He loves to chomp on carrots and broccoli and it makes my heart sing every single time 🙂

  • Bernie got a bow tie…how adorable!!

  • I won a contest held by Whitney and Caroline and got SO MUCH free food!! Like seriously, I didn’t realize what I was signing up for when I won this contest, but I am having a BLAST experimenting with all of these new to me ingredients 🙂
