Hi y’all and happy Thursday/almost-weekend!!
I haven’t posted in a couple days (and by that I mean a week and some change). I took some much needed me!!!! time. I also watched my team win the NBA finals (ahhhhh). I traveled to Eugene, Oregon for my orientation. For those of you who don’t know, I am transferring to the University of Oregon and I leave in 5 days (eeeeekk)! Go ducks.
I loved the campus and I felt like it was home. At the end of this month I finally get to start classes that aren’t online so I’m pretty stoked.
After my trip to campus, I made my way to Seattle with my sister and to meet up with my boyfriend (we just transitioned to long distance so this was the first time I saw him in a while).
The drive was incredible, the area is beautiful (Washington never disappoints), and we even went on a hike!
I enjoyed some good food (some healthier then others), some beer, and some icecream. This is so important to indulge every once in a while. It makes it that much sweeter and reminds you why you started.
I just went on a 2.68 mile run and felt AWESOME (well crappy first) but excited to get back into it. AND my mind was rejuvenated. I took me time and I’m so happy I did.
- 1 cup pineapple (frozen)
- 1 banana
- 1/5 cup coconut milk
- Chia seeds
- Dragon fruit
- Coconut shavings
- Granola with cacao
It was the perfect way to get back into it.
For dinner I was trying to use up some veggies, meat, and starches so I kind of improvised.
I made cream of mushroom chicken quinoa bake
- 3 chicken breast
- 1 cup low sodium low fat cream of mushroom sauce/soup
- 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1 large zuchinni chopped
- 1 red onion chopped
- 1 cup quinoa (I recommend way more)
- Seriously just throw it all into a baking dish and bake at 375 for 45 minutes
I also never really take preworkout but today I wanted something a little more. I LOVE this brand. It doesn’t leave me completely hopped up and shaky.
Until next time ~ katie
