It’s Friday It’s Friday It’s Friday!!!
Weekends, the most glorious time of the week. Let’s get things started off right with some of my favorite things this week!
Staying Productive During the School Week
I have knocked out some serious school work this week, enabling me to have a weekend to really enjoy. Putting things off until the weekend is not how I like to roll. How are you supposed to look forward to the weekend when you know you’re going to be faced with a giant heap of work? No thanks! Keeping that in mind each time I get a new assignment is great motivation to keep it both with asap and resist the urge to put it off until later.
Tara nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. How sweet! I am thankful for my blog and all that has come along because of it. It feels great to be acknowledged for my work. Thank you Tara!!!
Motivational Booty Kicking Workout Music
Tina posted about Pandora’s workout stations and I thought that was such a great idea! I never know what songs to put together for exercise playlists. So many choices makes me completely indecisive. Pandora to the rescue! This solves the problem in a snap.
New Variations of an Old Favorite
I love cottage cheese and have been particularly eating it a lot lately. Protein packed, a good source of calcium and vitamin D, thick and creamy. You just can’t go wrong. I recently found a bodybuilding.com link with 8 fun cottage cheese recipes that all sound awesome. Think cheesy pasta, cheesecake, pancakes and more. Mmm! Check it out HERE if you’re needing some new ideas.
Here are two of my favorite ways, but I will definitely be trying out some of BB’s ideas soon!
savory cottage bowl with Mrs Dash fiesta lime seasoning and 34 degree cracker crisps
sweet combo with an orange (or other fruit)
Healthy On The Go Bars
I was sent some Vixi Bars to try out and have to say I am pretty impressed. They of course are the perfect convenient snack for me when I’m out and about on campus. Totally better than hitting up the vending machine.
- made with all natural hormone-free protein powder, each bar has 12 grams
- sweetened naturally with dates
- healthy fats from nuts
- very minimal, unprocessed ingredient list
- a variety of great flavors
The only negative I thought of was that I wished they were a little bigger…but only because they are so delicious! They did a perfectly fine job of satisfying my hunger and sweet tooth. I tried the following flavors:
Peanut Butter and Jelly
Peanut Butter Cup
They were all amazing. They have many other flavors as well. Now I REALLY want to try the pumpkin pie, cherry brownie, and peanut butter banana ones! Thanks to the great company behind Vixi Bars for letting me try them!
What are you loving this week?
Cheers to a successful week and a fun weekend ahead! Plans for me? Nothing much in particular…and i’m stoked. Sometimes those turn out to be the very best!
Whatever your plans are, don’t forget to have a little fun.
