oh, hello, i just realized it is a new month. i think i was still stuck in august yesterday.
did you realize that today is 90210 day?
yep. 09-02-10 :) i used to love that show! the OG episodes, of course.
yesterday was september first and marshall reminded me that it had been three years since this sweet girl was sent to doggy heaven (by a horrible hit-and-run culprit…)
miss you every day, mable.
it was fun hearing about your five ingredient fixes! there were some clever 5 ingredient snack and meal ideas. i thought i would share a few:
- tay: yogurt, stevia, peanut flour, jam and love
- kristin: garlic parm chicken: chicken breast, garlic cloves, parmesan cheese, olive oil, salt&pepper [counting them as one! ;)]
- naomi: oatmeal, egg whites, blueberries, strawberries, cinnamon
- heather: whole wheat rotini, can of garbanzos, can of diced tomatoes, feta cheese, fresh spinach
- susan: no bake protein bars: raw oatmeal, chocolate chips, protein powder, peanut butter, water
breakfast was a repeat of yesterday’s. lunch was a repeat of monday’s. my snack was a repeat of tuesday’s which i realized you guys never saw.. but for the record: greek yogurt + vitatop. even my moves today were repetitive: another run outside (it was great!)
in other words.. nothing exciting has been going on in the ol’ meals and moves department today, so i thought i would share some things about september!
two blog world september announcements!
first off, tina over at faith, fitness, fun has started a 30 day movement for the month of september. yes, i know i am a little late to announce this as it is the 2nd of september. sorry, i am always a day late and a dollar short!
30 Days of Self-Love Reflections
in tina’s words:
I am launching The 30 Days of Self – Reflection Challenge for the month of September to help us each come closer to self love and truly believing in our worth as beautiful human beings. This movement will serve to help us all learn to love ourselves more and to uplift one another in the process. To begin to realize our true beauty and value. To battle the inner dialogue that strives to bring us down. In short, it will help us to love ourselves like we should have never stopped doing. To learn, check out this page.
each day, tina will post a topic for us to reflect on check out the posts so far!
this is an awesome movement that we can all benefit from. please take a moment to check it out!
