Happy Pi Day! I don’t have a witty pie recipe for you, but I guess you can always make this baby if you so desire 😉 I hate math though, so this holiday holds nothing special for me, haha! I remember the holidays that I don’t care about but miss the good ones! Anyway, I have a really busy weekend ahead. I have a ton of work to get done (some deadlines I forgot about) and I am a little stressed about getting it all done. But I just need to remember to breathe and take it one step at a time. But I know how the weekends can be for me. I am totally lazy and procrastinate so bad! I just have no motivation on the weekends after a long week. But I can’t let that get in the way this weekend! I have to stay on my game! I know it will be worth it though in the end, I just have to get there first. And then do it all over again the next week 😉 See this is why my life is so boring and why I am not a blogger who posts about their daily life. Nothing happens and every week looks exactly the same, just some weeks I have more work and responsibility than others. If I went places and tried cool new things I would tell you, but alas, right now that is a sad no. I just blame it on school though. Just wait till next year when I start college. I am sure then I will have tons of adventures to share with you all! Until then you will have to deal with my mini rambles, recipes, workouts, yoga love, and random healthy living posts!
And here is my 10th link-up to FTSF (Finish The Sentence Friday)! FTSF is that you are given a sentence each week and you finish it however you want, long or short. This week’s sentence was, “My favorite decade was…”
Tuesday: Ola! Granola Review + Giveaway
Wednesday: Apple Poppy Seed Pancakes
Blog Posts I loved this week:
One of my favorite exercises! I can never get enough of new variations to try 😉
Your blog is part of you! Be proud of it and love it!
I always had fun dyeing eggs as a kid! We would always dye so many, but no one would ever eat them all. My brother and I would each make a special egg for everyone in my family. We would use wax crayons, the fizzy dyes (I loved the vinegar smell from the vinegar you use to dissolve the dyes!), stickers, the works!
Don’t get wrapped up and stressed about things you can not control.
Don’t let past experiences hold you back. Grasp that dream and run with it. Follow the path right for you and don’t give up.
Again, you are writing for you, first! Those who come back to read are just icing on the cake. If someone doesn’t like you content, then why are they reading? You don’t have to change your writing voice to fit others likes or wants.
A discussion about an often times over-looked body essential form the iron woman Kristy! (This strong girl just sat through a painful iron transfusion for over 6 hours the other week!)
Just the fundamentals of being a healthy eater!
I think it is just about training how you want. I like doing high reps at a challenging weight. I don’t like doing 5 reps at a max our weight. It just isn’t for me, but it might be for someone else. (i.e. Group Power/Body Pump are awesome classes!)
This girl is awesome! A great reminder on being grateful for what you have…written on her birthday too! Happy Birthday Amy! XOXO
So many bloggers are all about meal prep. I don;t meal prep, just gather enough groceries each weekend for essential go-to dishes. I prep during the week as I go and that is fine by me. A laid back approach!
From a Crossfitter, Claire, and her struggles to get in enough fuel to get stronger.
Again, another great post on true blogging and blogging for yourself first!
Any of these types of “diets” that keep popping up are fads. They are, you can not deny that. Why can’t we just eat real whole foods fresh form the Earth?
Haha, yes! I do love spending $50 on Compression Socks 😉

Tarragon Salted Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies. A simply beautiful elegant recipe 🙂
Treadmill Pyramid Cardio Routine. I did the pyramid (squat/burpee) portion and was dieing! It was so great!
Buckwheat Berry Superfoods Porridge. Mmm, the taste of buckwheat in the morning 🙂
Vegan Blueberry Upside Down Cake. This is so perfect! A single-serve vegan and gluten-free dessert 🙂
DIY Chai Spice Mix. I really want to like the chai flavor, but the one time I tried to make a chai spiced quinoa flake bowl…it tasted horrible. I think it was because I did not get the ratios right and put way to much Cardamom in! I need to try again!
A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ My 2 new college acceptances! I am still waiting to hear from like 8 or 9 more schools…Hopefully by April I will know!
+ My brother is coming home for spring break today for the next two weeks. Even though I complain about him coming home all the time and getting in my way, haha, I do like having him here! Maybe… 😉
+ That exciting post I was teasing you with a few weeks ago? Well I think it might be coming up next week, so get pumped!
+ I should get a prize for this. I emailed my NJ congressman and got him to agree to come in to my AP government class to talk with us! My teacher had mentioned how he had tried to get the congressman to come in before, but never got a response. So I said hey, what the hell, let me take a stab at it. Bam! Done! I guess I have gotten pretty persuasive and good with email communication due to the blog 😉
So Tell Me:
Is your life as boring as mine? Really, mine is the same thing every week! Wake-up, go to school, come home, read blogs, workout, eat dinner, take a shower, go to bed…and REPEAT!
What was your favorite subject in school?
Random, but have you ever had an Asian Pear? Also known as an apple pear? I did! For the first time on Tuesday. It was weird. Like a not too ripe pear. Crisp and subtly sweet. Not to bad either 😉
**And the winner of the Ola! Granola Giveaway is……Tessa B.! Woohoo, congrats girl 🙂 For everyone else, you can still use the free shipping code! SAS2014 (exp 07/01/14) when you place your online order!
