Recipe + music

I managed to wrangle the recipe for these delicious smoothies out of the friend that made them. This is the basic recipe she followed (which she played with a little).

1/2 cup canned pumpkin (puree)
3/4 cup milk or vanilla yogurt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. brown sugar


I can't wait to try to make my own!

I've had this song on repeat a lot today:

Today's been pretty stressful and I love how this song puts everything in perspective. :)

pumpkin spice.

Pumpkin spice smoothies = yum!! I wish I could take credit for these, but I cannot. One of my besties made these over the weekend. I'm trying to wrangle the recipe out of her so I can make some of my

Half the semester is over! Whoa! I'm trying to figure out where it went while I'm picking classes for the spring (!).

Bloggies, meet my latest snack discovery...

I have no idea why that cut off, but that is my latest discovery: Fiber One Bars! I've tried the Oat/Chocolate and the Oat/Peanut Butter. But when I went to their website, I discovered they also have 4 other flavors that I will track down...especially the Strawberry and the Chocolate Mocha. Yum...

Is this healthy?

Cheesecake ice cream with graham cracker pieces. No? Not healthy? I didn't think so. But it was still delicious and much needed after a crazy week of classes!

Twitter, homework, and music for yoga

I am convinced homework multiplies in my laptop bag when I leave it overnight. Does this happen to anyone else or is it just me? :p


As you read on an earlier post, I'm not a huge fan of the music on the yoga workouts on ExerciseTV that I do a couple times a week. So what do I do? Well, the same thing I do for my power walking...plug in my own! I'm trying out tunes by different artists and so far Avalon's music wins! For anyone who's interested, here are the Avalon songs that seem to work the best:

I support healthy living bloggers.

Well, obviously, I kind of *am* one. Haha.

[gets on soapbox]

This article, if you haven't seen it yet (which I'm sure you have if you read Meghann's blog), definitely criticizes healthy living bloggers, 6 in particular! I don't read all of them, but I do read "The Inner Workings of a College Graduate" (now known as Meals and Miles) regularly, and I have to say that the article is completely ridiculous. Reading the healthy living blogs, such as Meals and Miles, Fitnessista , among others, has been motivating me to keep trying to live a healthy lifestyle (with a few indulgences) while in college. Marie Claire's article on the subject is completely wrong.

[/jumps off soapbox]

Now then. Haha.

Foods of the week...
- Apples make great in between class snacks.
- Nutella + peanut butter + whole wheat bread = best sandwich ever. Don't believe me? TRY IT. You will love it. ;)
- I've been putting cinnamon on sliced apples, peaches, and my nutella/pb sandwiches for 3 weeks. Yes, it's good. No, I'm not wierd at all. :p

Healthy living tip...
The feeling when you let go of something that's been weighing you down is amazing!! If you're holding onto something or someone that's dragging you down, LET GO. Give it to God and let Him handle it. To quote one of my favorite songs: It's a new day/Oh, it's a new time/And there's a new way/I'm gonna live my life/All the old has passed away/And the new has come/Thank God it's a brand new day!

Artist: Avalon
Song: New Day
Album: Testify to Love (2003)
