Happy new year!

20 days late.

It's January, and everyone is all up on new year's resolutions, but I am that lone person who never even comes up with a new year's resolution. In fact, this year, for the first two weeks of the new year, I hardly even worked out and definitely did not eat as well as I should have been.

I know, I know. What kind of fitness gourmet am I?! Well, here are my thoughts. When on vacation, or eating out, or for special occasions in general, I try not to stress out about these things. When my usual daily routine consists of a one hour workout and healthy eats (sometimes to the extreme), I think my body will allow me some leeway every now and then.

This is another reason why I don't do the resolution thing. I hate feeling pressured, and I obviously would have failed instantly this year! So I guess it did work out for the best.

And now let's talk about my latest food obsessions!

New favorite snack: edamame. I buy it frozen, and put some in a bag to defrost in the fridge, after adding a little salt and garlic powder.


New favorite quesadilla (since we all know by now that quesadillas are one of my favorite food groups!): whole wheat tortilla, grated cheese, and meatless crumbles. With a side of some spicy salsa, as always.


New breakfast discovery: chia pudding with banana. For the one below, I used 3 tablespoons of chia seeds, about 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, sliced banana, and almond milk. For the almond milk, I added enough to give it a liquidy consistency prior to putting it in the fridge. I left it in there for about 15 minutes and it gelled up nicely! More almond milk can be added afterwards if necessary, but consistency should be pudding-like. Oh, don't forget the sunflower seed butter on top :).


Other than that, today I made The Fitnessista's kale and goat cheese salad as part of my lunch for tomorrow! Definitely still loving the good ol' kale.


Last week's workout recap:
Sunday: Run (3 miles)
Monday: TurboKick (still my most favorite workout ever!)
Tuesday: Body pump
Wednesday: Elliptical and foam roll
Thursday: Rest day
Friday: Run (3 miles)
Saturday: Yoga and salsa dancing :)
