Garden Baby

Posted Jul 08 2010 5:49pm
It's so nice to be back! Thank you all for your support and kind words about my Aunt. I really love how much of a community the blog-o-sphere has become to me. Thank you all again so so much (
Now on with the show!

fresh eats.
Okay, I have been dyyyying for a breakfast cookie for about the past week, but I kept forgetting to make one the night before! Every morning, I'd wake up and think "Breakfast cookie!" then realize you need at least eight hours for one of those bad boys to sit. Total sadness. So last night, I went all middle school and wrote BREAKFAST COOKIE in huge letters on my hand at the gym. Let's see me forget that.

Once home, I happily trotted to my computer, printed off the recipe and sashayed to my kitchen where I threw the ingredients together - only to discovered a mixture more like overnight oats? What? I reread my recipe. Half of a banana. Somehow in my giddy stupor, I put in a whole one. Weak! I looked across my counter. No more bananas. It was double this baby or forget about it. Of course, I chose to double it.

Here's hoping breakfast cookies taste even better after two nights in the fridge! For lunch, I was hungry for something old so I finally broke out the panini press and whipped up a Turkey-Apple-Spinach wrap. It was everything I remembered and more.

Seriously, these are ridiculously easy to make and taste SO GOOD. Throw a dab of mayo and dijon mustard in the center of a wrap, add a little turkey, some slice sweet apple (like fuji, gala, pink lady), a slice of cheese, a slice or two of red onion and a handful of spinach. I promise, you will be making them weekly.

Since I'm the best girlfriend ever, I decided to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies for my boyfriend and his sisters. Unfortunately, I can't get the three of them to eat a single healthy thing, so these were the Martha Stewart recipe with just a few tweaks by your truly.

I may have eaten one. Or four. Let's just say, my tummy is not very happy with me. I'm gonna have to have a hugeee salad beast for dinner to live up to The Fitnessista's tweet challenge and satiate my rumbling belly!

fit happenings.
After my baking spree, it was time to pay attention to my much neglect garden. And check out what I found!

Hello beautiful! You will make me a delicious meal one day very soon. I am getting way to antsy for my veggies to grow already! I feel like it's taking foreverrrr. Someone send me a little extra patience please?

I also wanted to mention that I got one of my newest fitness goodies the other day - The Fitbook ! The pretty Miss Jennifer of She's A Fit Chick recommended it and I just couldn't resist.

I absolutely love it! It makes everything so easy to keep track of. Plus I love that you can monitor your food groups - I'm realizing that I don't eat nearly as much veggies as I thought I did. I'm gonna have to work on that! See? Already improving. (
You can also track your workouts in your Fitbook so now I have a nice little place to keep track of my strength routines. Today I did the WH Rock Solid Abs workout It's such an awesome workout. You really get a pump on, definitely a must try if you're looking to switch up your abs routine. I'm about to top this off with a 35 minute HIIT run! I'm thinking 5 minute warm up and cool down with five 30 second sprints and 1:30 rests?

What's your favorite HIIT workout?

Okay loves, it's time to get my run on before Thirsty Thursday!! Oh yeahhh, you know what time it is! I hope you all have a great night bloggies - catch ya in the am (:
