They had a special 2 for 1 deal on Green Monsters today! I told Eric I made him a special treat this morning, but he wasn’t buying it. Has anyone out there been successful in getting their boyfriend/husband to try green monsters? I have yet to hear about a man that has tried them! If you have been successful- or haven’t- leave a comment below and let me know! I need to know the secret.
I spent the morning baking for my next media related review for Glo Bakery. I will admit, it is pretty stressful knowing that someone is going to be reviewing my baked goods for the world to see!
I also had a few setbacks in the kitchen today and I was feeling a bit stressed!
I made my Zucchini Breakfast Power Muffins and today I used paper liners. Big mistake! The muffins stuck to the liners like nobody’s business.
Then I realized I was out of lemons right when I was in the thick of things, so I had to leave and jet to the store.
And in my 3rd batch I realized I was out of soy yogurt! I had to use soy milk in a pinch. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but when it all happens within a span of 3 hours it can get a bit hectic. :)
Luckily I made sure to have some fun on the side:
I had to taste each muffin of course!
Flax ‘n Gl’oat Power Muffin:
Carrot ‘n Raisin Spice Muffins:
Sweet ‘n Spicy Zucchini Breakfast Muffins:
Yes, I ate all three muffins! Plus 1 more. Luckily they are super healthy right? :)
Unfortunately though, I have to re-bake all 3 muffins. The zucchini ones are stuck to the paper and I don’t feel good delivering these! So Eric will get the rest. The carrot ones flopped too I think because I cut the recipe in half and used soy milk. And lastly I didn’t like how the carob chips tasted in my flax muffins. 3 stikes, I’m out! :( I guess I will be back to the drawing board tomorrow.
Needless to say I spoiled my lunch and I am not hungry one bit! Opps!
I also did some more organizing in the kitchen while I was waiting for them to cook:
Eric installed this spice rack for the drawer, so I started to put my spices in it. Don’t worry I have more than that, I just took this picture before I filled it up :)
I also organized another cupboard and changed the height of the shelves. I made the bottom two shorter to fit all our supplements and medicine, and then I put the cookbooks on top.
NEW CHALLENGE ALERT!
Just when you thought you couldn’t handle one more challenge, Caitlin and I have teamed together to rock one out!
This time the goal is Glowing and healthy skin for the summer!
Caitlin wrote me last week looking for a glowing skin challenge! She was sick and tired of dull and sallow looking skin. I think her skin is gorgeous, but of course we are always our own worst critic, right?
See Caitlin’s post this morning for all the details!
Here is me doing the traditional leg lift. I did 3 sets of 50 per leg.
And here I am doing inner thigh lifts. A reader named Andrea recently reminded me that strong inner thigh muscles prevent running injuries. So I am bringing them back baby! :) I did 3 sets of 50 per leg.
And no, my downward dog has not gotten any better as of late:
Damnit, I want to be flexible! I hope with time I can get better at it. I don’t know why this one pose bothers me so much! haha.
