Quick and Easy


Bentley was being extra cute today and I had a photo shoot. What else is new? I need a life.


I look drunk here but it was only 2 pm people, who do you think I am. He looks cute though so it’s worth embarrassing myself.



This is the “enough with the pictures lady you’re getting on my nerves” face that he gives me way too often.


For a part 1 of lunch, I tried the new Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte Lara bar.


Lara Bar did NOT contact me to review this, I just love sharing what I enjoy with all of you! 😀

I loved this flavor. I definitely was not disappointed!

After getting home a little while later, I whipped up a new smoothie.


  • 1 C. Almond Milk
  • 4 Frozen Strawberries
  • A few pineapple chunks
  • 3/4 C. Frozen Mango
  • 1/2 Frozen Banana
  • 1 scoop Vanilla protein powder
  • 1 pinch shredded coconut
  • 1 pinch xanthan gum
  • A couple drops of Agave Nectar

I basically threw random stuff into the blender and it came out pretty delicious. Definitely a success to me 🙂 Topped with some Kashi Heart to Heart.


After a nice boring day full of school, homework and procrastination productivity, it was time for me to get my sweat on ;D

I don’t know about you guys but whenever I do not get to the gym in the mornings, I am really itching for a workout later in the day. Since all my classes are super early and require about an hour of commuting, I have only been able to workout in the evenings.

I haven’t been minding it though because it’s nice to not be rushed in the mornings and by the time I get to the gym, I have my game face on and am ready to do work!

It used to be the other way around, the longer I wait, the lazier I get. Which is still true I guess it just depends on the day and the mood I’m in.

I started with Courtney’s Quickie 20 minute workout that I saw on her blog this morning. Loved it! I even got my mom running a bit with me! (She has bad knees and running usually hurts her). I then trained my mom with a circuit workout from Gina (Fitnessista). Love that workout too!


Dinner was easy but yummy as usual. I guess that’s how I roll! I’m not very good at coming up with recipes. Plus if I’m starving then quick and easy is the way to go.


Grilled chicken, sweet potato, peas. I don’t think I could ever get tired of sweet potatoes.

I just finished watching the Gossip Girl season premiere. I DIED! Any fans out there?

Now it’s shower time, maybe some more homework, then bed a little early. Tomorrow’s wake-up call is an extra early one!

Hope everyone has a great night 😀


What’d you have for dinner?

  1. I’m all about quick and easy recipes. Sweet potatoes are a staple at my house too!

    Oh, and my fav Larabar is probably cherry or apple pie, but I haven’t tried that new cherry one yet. Looks yummy!
