Embracing Break

Howdy Folks!

Hope your Thursday has been a good one. My (5-week) vacation began with breakfast in bed reading my new January issue of Fitness – love my health magazines.

English Muffin with Flax PB & Honey

Next up: exercise! I was determined to get in one last sweaty workout at “The Resort”. It was a success:

  • 20 minutes Elliptical (resistance: 5.0)
  • 20 minutes stationary bike (resistance: 5.0)
  • 20 minutes treadmill (incline: 10.0)
  • 60 squats @ 20lbs.
  • 20 lat pulldowns @ 40lbs.
  • bicep curls @ 10lbs.
  • 10 ‘assisted’ pull-ups
  • 10 ‘assisted’ dips
  • V-ups (abs)

Afterwards, I headed to TJ’s to pick up a couple snacks for the road tomorrow, as well as a few things to hold me over for the rest of the day…

Lunch: Tofu Spring Rolls & a new Numi Iced Tea. I tried Morcoccan Mint today to pair with the mint inside the spring rolls ; ), but I wasn’t a huge fan — “barely sweetened” is still a tad too sweet for me.

For an afternoon snack, I treated myself (at $1.89) to Fage with raw almonds, apricots & honey. Fage does not compare to any other Greek yogurt – so divine!

I have been a cleaning machine today! I can’t leave my place less than sparkling before I leave town. I cleaned the (moldy) shower, did the dishes, and 3 loads of laundry (including bedding). I took an hour break in there somewhere for some sale shopping at the mall. I scored 2 great deals at AE & VS today — love coupons.

Anyway, off to finish packing up my life…seriously, 5 weeks is a long time!

Have a great night,

~ Hillary

P.S. My microbiology professor is on top of it – grades are posted. B for me…guess that’ll do.

    You’ll love the Bees Knees. OMG, so good! Your Fage, almond, and apricot dessert looks FABULOUS. And I must agree with you on the Fage. :)

    Seriously, no other greek yogurt compares. Then again, I don’t think I’ve ever tried any other yogurt than Fage. Nice post!

    Agree with you on Fage…really is just the best. Need to try the honey/apricot combo though…so Greek! Bet it’s just deliciously divine…!
