A Big Day Ahead

Good morning readers! I have a couple different things in my head right now so here they are, one by one:

Not So Amazing
I decided to try this Amazing Meal Chocolate Infusion for breakfast this morning and the verdict: it's not so amazing. Fail. I mixed the packet with milk like I usually do with protein shakes, but that didn't seem to help. It was really chalky and didn't taste very good. I still chugged it down and plan on having my usual protein shake after I work out within the next hour or so. The packet is 110 calories, has 1g fat, 13g carbs, 6g fiber, and 10g protein. It reminds me of the this product except the Vega shake actually tastes good, and they are nutritionally pretty similar. So, I recommend you try the Vega Shake & Go Smoothie over this one if you were thinking about it.

Plans for Shopping
Can you tell how ready I am for a shopping trip? Even though I didn't complete the remix challenge, not shopping for a whole month has really helped me look at my closet in a new way. I've had a friend ask me if I will go crazy on my first shopping trip because I haven't gone in a month, and I replied that I don't think I will. I've come to learn what items I'm missing from my closet and how to approach shopping so that I actually have complete outfits to wear instead of random pieces. Now I can't promise that this will always happen, but the plan is to be more mindful when I'm shopping. Thus, I've already started a list in my head about the items I need for Spring:

  • casual capri pants (I have a couple pairs but they don't fit well)
  • a nice pair of jeans to wear when going out - and they can't be skinny jeans!!
  • some casual jewelry that I can wear with everyday outfits - looking for a chunky necklace
  • a printed/colorful blouse for Spring, that can be worn casually or dressed up
I think that's it for now...

Fight Night
Tonight we are having friends over for dinner and to watch a UFC fight. Lots to do before then - get my workout in, make lunch, do some laundry, clean the house, buy groceries, cook dinner, also order some appetizers from the Indian restaurant, and make dessert...the last one isn't necessary but I'm in the mood to bake so I'm planning on making red velvet cupcakes! No...they won't be from scratch, it's a box mix - but who cares? Still yummy!

Well, I think that's all for today friends. I hope you have a great Saturday!
