Happy Friday! I want to check in before a slightly short workday. Alex’s brother is getting married tomorrow so I may be a bit sporadic in posts this weekend. Before we head out, I want to share a few things I’ve been obsessed with this week. Have a great day 🙂
I want to get back into some strength training since I stopped doing Kayla Itsine’s BBG. It was good but I got bored of the workouts. Living in a one bedroom apart with Alex and Bailey doesn’t yield a ton of space to have weights stored. I wanted something to add difficulty to the strength exercises and decided to pick up some resistance bands off Amazon. These are awesome! They are from the brand Limm and there are 5 included in the pack that have varying resistances in them. I just started using them but I can’t wait to make some different workouts with them.
You’re probably sick of me talking about these blondies from Joy Food Sunshine, but you have to make them. First of all, the work is all done by the food processor so you just press a button to mix the ingredients. They can’t be any simpler to make and since they have chickpeas, they’re basically a healthy dessert. I want to note that I made two changes to the recipe. Instead of coconut sugar which I don’t have, I used brown sugar and 2% milk instead of almond milk. I’ve been eating at least one a day since I whipped them up on Sunday. Let’s be real though, most nights I have two. #NoRagrets not even a letter 😉
Speaking of how easy those blondies are to make because they’re mixed in a food processor, that’s another one of my obsessions. When we were at my parents house over Memorial Day, I noticed a new food processor box sitting on their counter. Being the oh so wonderful daughter that I am, I asked if I could take the old one. They said yes so back to New Jersey it came! To be honest, they might not even make this exact model food processor anymore. It’s been used for as long as I can remember, and I’m almost 23, so I’m sure if the exact model is made anymore. This one from Cuisinart looks to be an update version (i.e in silver instead of white) though! So shout out to my parents for letting me take the old one. You guys rock 🙂
Mamma Mia! Soundtrack
Since there’s a second Mamma Mia! movie coming out and I’ve seen so many trailers recently, I started listening to the first movie’s soundtrack. Every song is so catchy and it takes so much restraint to not sing along if I’m listening to it at work haha. I found a YouTube video that has the entire soundtrack on it so you best believe it’s been played multiple times this past week. Bailey and I even had a little dance party last night while Alex was at work. That’s a normal thing to do with your puppy right?!
Question of the day: What’s one thing you’ve been obsessed with this week?
