I can't believe that it's already August! Every year, part of me is excited for this month and the other part of me is sad. Sad because August is the month that I go back to school, but excited for the start of a new year! I seriously love everything about fresh starts.
Back to yesterday - I had an awesome Sunday afternoon with my family!
It included some of this:
|hello, future husband ;)|
Captain America was actually a really interesting movie! It was hilarious when after the movie I was like "why would he run around with a shield painted so obnoxiously if he's sneaking around in enemy territory??" when my mom told me that it was based on a comic book series. Wow, smart Julianna!! :)
Family game night last night involved poker - I have never played before and it is quite the complicated game. I still don't have the hang of it!
I also made a Mexican burrito/taco bar for my family last night. I heated up a mixture of pinto and black beans, cooked turkey meat with mexican spices, and shredded cheese and lettuce. It required a little bit of work but the end result was worth it.
I had two delicious tacos with a bit of everything for dinner:
Dessert was some vanilla ice cream with cookie crumble, toffee bits, and chocolate syrup. I enjoyed it while watching the newest episode of The Glee Project.
I also did some late night cupcake baking. I just used a simple cake mix and frosted them with some of my leftover cream cheese frosting. Yum yum! My brother Jay ate lots for breakfast this morning and now they're 3/4 gone!
Workout + Brekkie
This morning's run took me on a new route with my friend Emily at cross country practice. I'm not sure how far it was but I think it was around six miles. Once I stretched I drove over to the gym for my usual 10am BodyPump class.
I've noticed that the teacher who teaches Mondays and Fridays uses a LOT of puns about the music. "tonight", "i don't mind", and "sweet children of mine!" are all regular occurences. My mom joined me for class today and I told her about all the puns - we were cracking up the whole class! It doesn't bother me too much but today it was especially funny. During one song alone I counted 10 puns. Ten!!!
After lots of giggling I drove home and made breakfast... any guesses as to what it was??
I've gone through almost a whole jar of protein powder, like 3 cartons of almond milk, half a container of cocoa powder, and probably more than 10 bananas recently due to these awesome protein shakes! I seriously can't get enough (and this is well evidenced on the blog..heheh). Each time they turn out a little differently and today's was especially thick and milkshake-like. I'm not sure I'm going to get off of this kick for awhile cause these are just too delicious.
Lots of things to do today - a new post on August goals coming up later!
What is your current favorite breakfast/snack?
Any interesting August goals?
