Five Things Friday 11.6.2014

Happy First Friday of November!

This week has been a little crazy! Not sure if it’s day light savings time (it’s dark by 5pm…literally!!), or because it’s officially November, but something about this week has just been a little wacky.

This weekend, I will actually be busy busy busy in the kitchen testing recipes for a cookbook (not my cookbook, just testing for other people!), I have school work to do, music to review, AND Bodypump to get caught up on.  Oh yea…and Brian and I have some time carved out to hang together too 😉

Busy, busy, busy around here, but it’s doing all things I love to do (with the exception to school, but there is a means to an end with that one…!) 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and do something fun to enjoy the fantastic fall weather!

Five Things Making Me Happy

  • Into the Woods Movie Trailer!  I am such a  sucker for staged musicals turned into movies, AND I am a huge Into the Woods Fan because we a production of that musical while I was in college 🙂

I played one of the “Ugly Step Sisters” and I am in the pink dress on the bottom Left!

  • My gratitude journal.  After reading Jen’s (Peanut Butter Runner) post about Cultivating a Gratitude Practice, I decided to do something that had been on my life “To-Do” list for a while and start a little gratitude journal.  At least once a day this week, I have written down at least one thing I am truly grateful for.  I really love it!  It’s so refreshing and really lifts my mood.

  • I ordered my first Thanksgiving turkey!!! HA! Kind of a goofy thing to make me happy, but I am super excited to have our menu planned and can’t wait to host Brian’s family for one of my favorite holidays 🙂
  • Fabletics!

I ordered a pair of capris back in September that I was so excited about, but unfortunately they slid right down my butt with just about every step.  Even in yoga, I found myself hiking up my capris with every pose.  Finally, I decided to contact Fabletics and ask for an exchange despite it being past the specified amount of days.  I explained my situation and they happily allowed me to send the capris back and they sent me a black pair of capris that I already knew fit me well 🙂

I already own them in orange!

  • Spending LOTS of time in the kitchen!  So for the next monthish…you won’t be seeing too many new “Treble in the Kitchen” recipes because of a very cool and fun project I am working on!  During November and some of December, I will be testing 100 recipes (!!) that are part of a cook book that focuses on nutrition for athletes.

Purchased a TON of groceries for testing yesterday…

This isn’t my cookbook, I am simply recipe testing recipes created by a nutritionist/chef and a registered dietitian, but there are a TON of recipes to be tested, so I am going to take this time to post more workouts and fitness related things on the blog.  SO! If you have any special requests (music playlists, at-home workouts, boot camp style workouts, fitness questions?) I’d be happy to share!!

    • Tara Deal says:

      It was the Salar Capri Foldover…I think it was the “foldover” that made them slide down my hips. I really don’t have hips or a butt that hold pants up so I need something kind of tight around that area. 🙂

  3. wow! that’s lots of food! wish i could come taste test. and yay for sablefish!

  4. Hi there, new to your blog! 🙂 I have tried egg white oats but they never come out right… how do you make yours?

  5. those zucchini boats look great! cute workout pants!
