It’s finally here! blog post numero uno!
I’m so excited to begin this little blog and share my thoughts, LA journey and my LOVE of a healthy lifestyle – cooking, recipes, fitness & nutrition- inspired by my all time favorite blogs: Peanut Butter Fingers, Fitnessista, and Eating Bird Food. Take a gander at the ABOUT page if you’re interested in the randomness that = me.
Let’s jump right in with some recaps of the day…. BREAKFAST! I’ve been all about a few favorites these days- protein pancakes, eggs, oats, or smoothies. Today, I decided on PUMPKIN pancakes (I know it’s not exactly Fall anymore but I had one lonely can of TJ pumpkin puree hiding in the cupboards). Inspired by these babies, I’d say the day started off just right. Don’t worry- there was obviously a few cups of coffee involved before, during, and after these healthycakes. I’d like to say I’m a morning person…I love getting up early. I love a morning workout. I have a morning routine that gets me inspired and ready for the day. If you ask my fiancé if I’m a morning person, he’ll probably give a cute smile and then kindly say that I’m EVENTUALLY a morning person….if I get my initial coffee, quiet time, and news out of the way first. Oh well, at least I admit it. I swear I’m not too high maintenance. Give me a healthy breakfast, workout, and coffee and I’m happy as a clam. The happy sam clam.
More coffee this afternoon…with a little beach walk after some errands in Santa Monica. Love a good Starbucks splurge. Normally I’ll do a tall black coffee with a large dash of cinnamon – today it was a tall soy misto extra hot. YUM.
My exercise for the day was my go-to 3 mile run to a local park and back. I have to say that running has been a little tough lately! Trying to get back to my half-marathon level. By half marathon level, I mean that I completed my first half marathon last year- and it was great! My brain wants to train for a second one, my legs well they need to find their groove again. But that’s another post in itself.
For dinner, I made some salmon with sides of roasted cabbage and sautéed zucchini. Easy, simple, go-to meal. Off to finalize a few odds and ends and watch a movie!
Wow I have so much randomness to write about. This is exciting!
