Two days with great breakfasts in a row! 

Sunday's breakfast

Monday's breakfast

I got this bar from Starbucks yesterday while I was studying.  It is a bar from Two Moms In The Raw.  The granola bar is dairy free, wheat free, and gluten free and 100% organic!  Now granted I am not a purely organic, vegetarian or gluten free eater, I have a great appreciation for healthy and pure eating.  Although I felt a little like a bird eating this because it is so seedy, I really liked it!  The only thing I would change is lightening up on the cinnamon a little, but then again I'm not a huge cinnamon person.  

Eau Claire (Express)
This is the first Monday that I think I have ever been extremely excited about! Today I did what I normally do during the week... 

went to class  
worked out 

...but the rest of the afternoon is going to be better than any other afternoon I have had in a long time!  This afternoon I will be heading back to Eau Claire and helping my boyfriend move some of his stuff to his new apartment! Then I will finish the night off by going to watch the Eau Claire Express play!  Watching the Express, a team in the Northwoods League, play is one of our favorite summertime activities. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this league, it is basically college baseball players (primarily D1 players) that are recruited from all over the US to play on teams up in my neck of the woods.  Unfortunately due to the fact that I am in La Crosse for a good chunk of the summer, I didn't buy season tickets since I will miss most of the games.  Lucky for me though, I have an interview for a part-time job in EC and will be spending a couple nights in EC this week... nights that the Express happen on! I probably sound more excited about watching baseball than I do getting this job to work during my internship in the fall... but not to worry, I am equally excited ;)  What are your favorite summertime activities?  Have you gotten to do them yet?

Other Items
My workout today consisted of: 2.3 mile run (round trip) to the gym, 20 minute lift, 25 minute elliptical

Lunch was buffalo chicken pizza.  This time I made it the ingredients were a little sloppy even after I took it out of the oven... not that it was any less delicious :)

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Wait a second, you ran 23 miles today?!
    And that sounds like a great afternoon, I hope you have fun!
    My favorite summer activities are berry picking, beach days, hiking, late night ice cream treats... a few I have done, but berry picking is next up :)

  2. @Tessa @ Amazing Asset No not 23 miles, just 2.3.. I wish it would have been 23, then I would have no fears about running a full marathon! My mom usually goes berry picking and she used to drag us with her, which I hated at the time, but now I appreciate fresh, healthy food! I'm sure I'll be out in the fields with her picking berries soon :) Happy picking!
