Happy June, Everyone! As usual, it’s hard to believe how quickly time goes by. I feel like it’s been forever since I had a legitimate post. I was unable to post last week because I was off and just didn’t make time. So, in that spirit, Happy Belated Memorial Day! Because the month of May was filled with birthday excursions, holidays and a beach trip, I ballooned up several pounds. I avoided the scale for a couple of weeks but when I finally got on two Saturdays ago, it wasn’t pretty. It was certainly a reality check so I was definitely more on top of my game last week and when I got on the scale this weekend, I had leveled a bit and come down a few pounds. I wasn’t perfect this weekend but I’ve certainly been worse. I am back on this week and hoping that I can get the extra fluff from May gone before July.
I don’t have a recipe this week but I did want to share a new product. I discovered Yasso Frozen Green Yogurt Bars at Target. There are several flavors. I’ve only tried the coconut and I loved it. If you are not a fan of coconut, I would obviously recommend a different flavor but if you are a fan, and you are on a diet, these bars are decadent. It’s creamy and has flecks of real coconut in it. It’s only 80 calories so it’s a nice dessert to have on hand. I loved it.
Over the past few weeks I have taken multiple pictures of things that I’ve done. I went to the beach, did some dog-sitting with one of my favorite dogs, had decadent food and drinks, hung out with friends, celebrated my birthday and just last Saturday, I ran in a 5K called Color Me Rad. The 5K was the worst venue I’ve ever seen for a run. It was loaded with steep hills. I am still sore from trying to huff and puff up and down those monsters. It was also hot and after two color-themed runs, I think I’ve decided I’m not a huge fan of powdered pain going in my face, up my nose and in my lungs. On the other hand, if the themed runs get people moving and excited to be exercising, there is certainly a place for them. I have included a lot of pictures below from my ventures. If you are friends with me on Facebook, you may have already seen them. I’m back in the swing of things so my posts should look more normal from now on. Enjoy the pictures and I will post again next week!
“If you have the last hands that I want to hold
Then I know I’ve got to let them go
‘Cause maybe in the future you’re gonna come back
You’re gonna come back around
Maybe in the future you’re gonna come back
You’re gonna come back
Oh, the only way to really know is to really let it go…” Maybe-Ingrid Michaelson
