Ah! The Groundhog saw his shadow…womp womp. This winter is going to be the death of me! O, and it is another snow day here in Jersey! But on a “sunnier note”, I ended up having a pretty stellar Friday night. I found out that one of the schools I had applied to early action finally put up their application decisions. So I went on and…I WAS ACCEPTED! I was so happy 🙂 It feels to good to know when a school wants you and that school is one of your more favorite ones 🙂 Then Saturday morning started with my favorite breakfast…PSPcakes!
And then later more good news. My mom was checking her email and received a financial aid update email form that school. It turns out I received this really awesome Merit Scholarship award. It is really good and this means that we will have to do some traveling 😉 I can’t wait! I ended my Saturday with my Saturday night yoga extravaganza. I really don’t know a better way to energize myself and make myself feel alive, happy, and beautiful. Sunday was a bit fun too! I made a new granola recipe with a bunch of new to me ingredients I picked up the previous day at the grocery. Love the smell of granola in the oven. My dad also finally took out my window AC from my room. Yes, it is February and it was still in!? Now my room actually gets some natural light! I have only one window in my room and when the AC is in, it is so dark. I wait for this moment every year when I can soak up my beautiful sunshine 🙂
So, Happy Power Monday by the way! I haven’t shared an arm workout with you guys in a while. This is one I have been doing the last 2 weeks and absolutely love. It was inspired by this one, but of course I like to make it my own.
+ Complete 3 rounds, using weights that are appropriate for you level. I use dumbbells for all the moves except I use a barbell for the bent-over rows.
+ Note, I am not a fitness professional, I just like to share my workouts with you all. Remember to honor your body and take breaks when needed!
But wait! This Power Monday is not over before I share another old recipe that has yet been blogged…until now. I am not big on savory breakfasts. I need my cocoa powder, my cinnamon, some coconut can’t hurt. But I wanted to try something out of the norm for me and created my first savory breakfast using the one and only Quinoa Flakes! Plus it includes some greens! Yay for a veggie filled breakfast, right?! Just another check mark on my mission to create as many different variations of quinoa flakes.
Savory Veggie Quinoa Flakes
- In a microwave safe bowl combine all dry ingredients, mix, then add the zucchini, spinach, and water. Mix again.
- Place in the microwave and cook on high for about 90 seconds to 2 minutes.
- Remove carefully (the bowl will be hot!) and enjoy!
You know what you should also add to this? Ketchup!
So tell me:
+ Do you have window AC units or do you have central air?
+ Sweet or savory breakfast?
