Pumpkin Banana Yogurt

6 Jan

Hey there! I hope you’re all having a wonderful Sunday so far! After getting up a bit later than I had planned, Dad and I headed over to Barnes and Noble to grab some coffees and catchup in the cafe like we do most weekend mornings. I wasn’t hungry for breakfast yet so instead, I opted for some unsalted almonds and a green tea which was AMAZING. It had coconut, ginger and lemon flavors in it which at first made me a bit hesitant to try it but I was sold after my first taste. Absolutely amazing.

After running a few errands to the grocery store, pharmacy and Target, we made it back to the house where my hunger finally set in. I was craving something sweet so I whipped up one of my favorite snacks from college…Pumpkin Banana Yogurt! I use to bring with me to my morning Astronomy class. I even had my professor ask what it was because he could smell it from the front of the class one morning. It super simple to whip up and filling once you add in some oats or granola.

After mushing up a whole banana, I add some vanilla yogurt, which this morning happened to be a Light Activia that was left in the fridge and add some pumpkin spice. Don’t have pumpkin spice? Chances are you have all the stuff to make it….I use to use this recipe before I ended up just buying some. Add as much as you want, toss in some granola or rolled oats (my preference) and you’re good to go! Hope you guys enjoy and have a wonderful rest of the day! I am off to the gym to fit in a bit of cardio before I start some hardcore cleaning!

No Time For Being Lazy

6 Oct

…unless it’s this morning and you’re me. I have had the absolute slowest start this morning and getting myself out of bed this morning was on the verge of impossible. I ended up working on some homework last night until almost 1:30 AM without even realizing it so this morning was not fun. I think I’ve been gradually waking myself up over the past two hours, starting with reading a book in bed for the majority of that time. Then I finally managed to make it out of bed and get a mug of tea going.

Must. Wake. Up.

As for the plan today, I am hoping (fingers crossed!) to get back into the gym today for at least a little while. My nose is still stuffed up but I am getting so antsy that I can’t wait another week to get to the UREC. I’m planning on doing the Saturday circuit here¬†from Back On Pointe and just going at my own pace. No need to rush through it while I’m still recovering! By the time that is done, it’ll be time for the LSU/Florida game which is going to be a nail-biter with the way that we’ve been playing recently. Let’s just hope we don’t have as many penalties as last week! Last year when we played Florida, our punter ended up scoring which was EPIC but because he was celebrating before he got to the endzone, we sadly lost the points. It’s still one of my favorite highlights from last year though….

 

I hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing Saturday! Enjoy it while you can!
