Good Morning! Anyone else excited that it’s Friday?
Today I’ll be sharing a few of my favourites from the week! I’ll be linking up with Heather so if you want to see what others are loving, you should head over there!
- experimenting with food
This week, I’ve been trying to make a lot of different things in the kitchen. For my breakfast yesterday, I made Peanut Butter Marshmallow Pancakes with Chocolate Protein Frosting and they were delicious! I used Flapjacked Pancake Mix as a base and then added a scoop of Peanut Butter Marshmallow Whey from Cellucor. For the frosting, I took half a scoop of chocolate protein powder and mixed it with just enough water to make it into frosting consistency. I’ve also been adding zucchini in my egg whites and it makes it so good! It also adds a lot of volume without taking up a lot of macros. I tried making protein brownie, but I still need to experiment with that. I left it in for too long so it ended up being really dry.
- birthday fun
Yesterday was my 22nd birthday and I am so appreciative for all the nice messages I received as well as the people I was able to spend the day with. I was able to Skype with the boyfriend for a couple of hours which was awesome! I also had a pretty solid workout with my sister before heading to dinner with a few of my friends. They surprised me and paid for my dinner! Afterwards, I headed to the ice cream shop that my friend works at so I could get my birthday ice cream. All in all, it was a great birthday spent with even greater people. I meant to get a picture outside, but forgot until I was about to change for bed so the quality isn’t that great. The shirt has these cool cutouts on it that I love!
- getting back in the gym
I finally got a gym membership last weekend so I have been loving getting back in the gym! I’ve been feeling sore most of the week which is something that I love.
I’ve been starting to learn German through the app Duolingo and it has been going pretty well. I’ll be doing this everyday until I head to Germany in September. I know once I’m there it will be easier to pick up because I’ll be exposed to it everyday. I’m excited to see how much I’ll know by the time I leave.
That’s all from me today, I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
