Taking a Break

Hey loves!

I took a break over the weekend and yesterday to just step away from the blogging world. I was in it all last week and I knew my brain just needed a break. It still does, but I thought I would pop in and blog just a little.

Friday we headed over to Costco and Earthfare to do a little grocery shopping…and we also stopped at Jason’s Deli to devour their salad bar.

Look, their salad bar rocks…its got all kind of stuff.

And every time we go to Earthfare, we get a cold Zevia to drink on the way back home. It’s just a thing.

Saturday I decided to spend my weekend eating clean whole foods…and that is what I did.

I started with a spinach, kale and banana smoothie and then a really good workout!

Lunch I had yogurt and almond butter with apple slices.

Then I took my sister to Forever 21 to find her a dress for homecoming.

When I got back my older sister and her husband were at the house.

While everyone else was eating hot dogs, I ate broccoli, eggs, peas, and onions topped with sauerkraut

 

Sunday, I started with another green smoothie

Hey y’all!

We got ready for church (I BROUGHT OUT THE BOOTS!!!) Oh yeahhhIMG_20130922_094904

Church was just so, so, so powerful Sunday. So happy I was there!

Lunch/dinner was pretty great…mostly the same at Saturday’s except no egg, but chicken!

So not a super special weekend or anything except I’m quite proud of myself eating so clean over those two days. I’m actually still doing it because I began to feel so good from all the veggies, fruits, and good proteins, no packaged crap.

I’m still drinking green smoothies and eating lighter. Except I might have had my fair share of almonds.

Anyway, you all have a great Tuesday!

Questions:

  • What did you do over the weekend?
  • What’s your go-to-throw-together-in-a-bowl meal?
  • Do you ever take a break from the blog world?

10. Last night, as I was finishing my workout…

My sister was screaming, “No, no, no!” So I obviously dashed up stairs (which is not the easiest thing when you were thinking about crashing on your yoga mat all night because you were so tired).

The whole kitchen was smoky

She burned QUINOA!

QUINOA!

Well, we opened all the windows and doors trying to air it out (it smelled horrible! WARNING: DO NOT burn Quinoa!)

After a few minutes, we closed the doors and I was going to go take a shower. Well, as soon as I’m about to, the smoke alarm GOES off.

Are you kidding me?

No.

I had to throw on clothes, grab my keys and purse and go find my parents. They were running down the other end of the neighborhood. So I had to find them and pick them up. Swish back home and my dad was the only one who knew how to turn off the smoke alarm.

We did however fix everything. Quite an eventful night!Thankful there was no fire haha :0

I’ve been wanting a new layout because with the theme I have, there are no sidebars. And that reallllly bugs me.

So, I’ve previewed a few of them and took screenshots.

It would be awesome, if you could give me some feedback! From anyone! Please…because I can not make up my mind.
