Hello and happy Saturday!
Yesterday I made it my goal to avoid all sugar (in the form of sweets) for the entire day, and I’m happy to say that I was successful! It was National Doctors Day, so the break room was full of treats – but I stayed strong and steered clear of the candy and baked goods that seemed to be around every corner.
It’s definitely easier for me to say no than to try to just have a little, and I think I need to start accepting this fact .
I didn’t have too much on the agenda last night after rotation, which was actually really nice. I came home, ate a bowl of oatmeal for dinner, and then watched a couple episodes of Criminal Minds while snacking on some fresh fruit for dessert.
At one point I ended up going over to my friend Brad’s place to hang out with him and our other friend, Babs. While I was there, I got a call from another friend who lives in the apartment complex inviting me over to a little party they were having. I was really not in the partying mood, not to the mention the fact that I was lounging around in my sweat pants, but Babs and I decided it’d be fun to just walk over and say hello. Oh, and she was just as dressed up for the occasion as I was.
It was fun to see some old friends I haven’t talked to in a while, but being over there made me realize that I really am not into the whole “house party” thing anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about having a good time when I’m with close friends and we’re celebrating a special occasion, but most weekends I prefer to get in bed at a decent hour and wake up without a pounding headache. Anyone else with me on this?
This morning I hit up an early Turbo Kick class and then came home to make this beautiful breakfast:
Crepes! It’s been a long time since I last made them and I’m glad I finally brought them back. Crepes are so tasty and they always make me feel like I am eating an elegant meal, but they take a little longer to make than my normal breakfasts – not to mention they dirty more dishes – and most days I just don’t have the patience. Today I have a totally open schedule so I’m happy I took the time to make them!
I made the batter with 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup skim milk, 2 egg whites, and 1 packet of Stevia and followed Gina's method to make them. Then I filled each crepe with strawberry Greek yogurt and topped them with fresh berries.
So delicious, and the perfect Saturday morning breakfast!
I don’t have any major plans set for the day, but I’ve spent most of my morning working on some blog design projects. Thanks to Katie's help, I finally figured out how to get my “Follow” buttons looking the way I want. I redid them and I think that my left side bar now looks much cleaner than it used to.
I also added a Search bar on the right side bar, which will hopefully make it easier to locate specific posts, recipes, and workouts.
Hope you like it!
Alright, it’s time to hit the showers. Have a wonderful day and I’ll see ya later!
