Five Things Friday 6.10.2016

Happy wonderful Friday!

These past two weeks have had me feeling a little all over the place.  They have been filled with tying up loose ends and beginning new projects.  Next week, Brian and I go out of town for a wedding mid-week, which should be an absolute blast.  Because I’m missing a good chunk of next week, I’m using that as motivation to work ahead this weekend to really stay on top of things with school and the blog.

Tomorrow, Brian and I are attending Yoga on the Rocks and I am SO excited!  While the weather is supposed to be gorgeous this weekend, I think most of my recreational activities will consist of study/work breaks where I go on walks with Bernie and Brian.

Now, let’s head into a long overdue Five Things Friday post!

Five Things Friday from Treble in the Kitchen

Five Things I Ate:

  • Recently for breakfast, I’ve been craving a bit of sweet and savory.  To solve this problem, I scramble up 1 or 2 eggs with tons of veggies and cook up 1/4 cup of oats and top with blueberries and cinnamon.  So satisfying and problem solved!

Breakfast

  • I’ve also been loving smoothie bowls due to the warm weather (but let’s be real.  I always love smoothie bowls!)  This one has a base of 1 banana, 1/4 cup of almond milk, 1/4 cup of water, 1/2 scoop of Vega One protein, and frozen spinach.  Topped with:  2 Tbsp Love Grown granola, sliced frozen strawberries, 1 Tbsp peanut butter, and sliced banana.

Smoothie Bowl

  • Lunches have been sautéed greens with reheated roasted vegetables and chicken or egg.  I basically just toss everything in the pan and push it around a bit until the greens are wilted and everything is hot. This bowl has spinach, carrots, zucchini, brussels sprouts, sweet potato, and chicken.

  • This is like a make-shift Asian stir-fry, but it was so good! I sautéed a ton of veggies (bell pepper, broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts, zucchini) with coconut aminos, sesame oil and fresh ginger and served with a side of brown rice.

  • Chicken kebobs! (recipe coming for this soon!)

Running with Bernie

  • 20 minute ab workout (using only bodyweight!)
  • CXWORX
  • Planning to do some speed running work this morning with a friend!

 Five Things Making Me Happy:

  • Bernie at the dog park!  Earlier this week, I went to the Cherry Creek State Park and Bernie had an absolute blast (and we met three other Vizslas!)

  • Hanging with friends.  Last Sunday, Brian and I spent the afternoon with our friends to celebrate Liz’s graduation and we just had such a good time 🙂 We are so lucky to have such a great group out here!

Liz's Graduation

  • Yoga on the Rocks this weekend!! Not only do I really NEED a little yoga, but I’m just excited because the class should be really great and the weather should be perfect.
  • Singing with the Denver Dolls.  Tonight, I have a performance with them 🙂  It’s always great when I get to sing with those wonderful gals!
  • Long evening walks with Bernie.  It’s not something we do every night, but we have been doing them way more often due to the longer days.  I love spending my evenings that way!
