Am I weird that I don’t like Fridays any more than any other day of the week? I guess if I worked a normal schedule maybe I would. I guess I have a fondness for every day of the week actually, or maybe just life in general?
Five Things Friday is a link-up of my top 5 favorite things from this past week – click on the image for more info!
5 Things I ate/drank
Iced cinnamon dolce americanos with soy milk
Have you guys tried Starbucks cinnamon-dolce flavor? OMG. It is amazing, and I really wish it wasn’t so delicious because this combination really does a number on my stomach but they are so.good. I can’t stop myself.
Salmon & Avocado salad
Terrible photo, but my go-to lunch that is super easy to make and bring to work. It is spinach, tomatoes, carrots, canned wild salmon, and 1/2 an avocado. For the dressing I just drizzle a little olive oil and squirt some lemon on there. Perfect!
Part- 2 of my work lunch. These are seriously the easiest, tastiest muffins ever and they have 2 ingredients. Seriously. They are plantains and eggs, thats it!
I love red meat and made these twice in the past week! No picture of the actual meatballs, but this is the marinade that I use, and I definitely recommend it! It gives them a great spicy-asian flavor.
5 Links I Love
14 Year Old Girl GMO-Labeling Activist - This video is about 13 minutes but if you have time to watch it, it is AWESOME. I love her and how confident, eloquent, and intelligent she is. She makes the interviewer look like an idiot.
A glimpse at how the media treated women this year - The nudity and sexualization really doesn’t bother me but I couldn’t believe some of the comments made in about women in the media! Wow.
Adequate Calories for Fat Loss - Important info about repairing broken metabolism in life-long dieters. Most people aren’t consuming enough!
Don’t Feel Sorry - Clearly i’m a fan of Clare’s blog
Wired at night? Your adrenals might be talking’ – Good info
5 Things Making Me Happy
Alex: “Is there a fire in here???”
Me: ”No, I just burn’t my food, thanks for checking on me!”
Alex: “Oh good. Hey, do you want to buy me something for Christmas and then i’ll buy you something?”
Me: “Maybe! What do you want?”
Alex: “Well i’ve been really good this year so I would like a sword because i’ve never had a sword before. Ok well i’m gonna head home because my mom is probably wondering where I am.”
So random, and so cute. I love him.
Tell me something you ate/drank, a workout you did, something that made you happy, or a link I should check out!
