Not Quite a Green Thumb

Aren’t my new Easter daisies puuurty? Jay and I got them yesterday from my in-laws as an Easter gift.


Hopefully I can keep them alive…I’m not exactly known for having a green thumb…Thumbs down


Just catching up from the weekend??

It was a good weekend, indeed!


After my enormous carb intake from all of the breakfast foods yesterday, I was more than ready to get movin’ this morning. I wound up doing the 5-4-3-2-1 Treadmill Routine with a couple extra minutes added on. I completed just shy of 6 miles which is absolutely crazy to me.

BUT, I figured I should at least attempt it, seeing as though I have a 10K to run this Saturday! Surprised smile

Breakfast was consumed almost immediately, which you may have already caught a glimpse of from above…


A slice of whole wheat toast with TJ’s almond butter w/ flax, banana slices, cinnamon, & chia seeds. Of course, the rest of the ‘naner was also enjoyed with some more AB.


On the side, I also had one of these strawberry shortcake flavored cottage cheese cups by Breakstone’s. I actually got these from my parents yesterday, since they apparently didn’t really care for them but didn’t want them to go to waste.


Hey, who am I to turn down free food? Winking smile


Time to go get crackin’ on my day…

  • grocery shopping
  • allergy shots
  • laundry
  • get my car checked out (I think it’s leaking something important…ooof)
  • figure out tonight’s dinner

Hope your week is off to a great start!

Question for the Day:

Do you consider yourself to have a “green thumb?”

Do you have any sort of garden? (Any tips for starting/maintaining one would be GREAT…I’m thinking about it!) Smile

    I definitely do not have a green thumb…things tend to die under my care…oops. But I still love planting things and having plants! When I get a yard of my own I definitely want to plant flowers, herbs, and maybe even fruits and vegetables!

    Those are such pretty flowers! I definitely don’t have a green thumb.. I like to admire flowers but I’m so bad at taking care of them!

    My mom on the other hand.. is a plant connoisseur. She’s practically turned her house into a jungle :) Haha

    I am envious of people who have a green thumb, I love flowers and plants but we just do not get along. My mom has the same feelings too, but we are going to try and experiment in the garden this year, haha I am not sure how this is going to go… we may end up burying ourselves alive 😉

    Did you enjoy the cottage cheese cup?

    I wish I had a green thumb, but I missed that gene. My mom on the other hand has SUCH a green thumb. We have a plant in our living room that was a birthday present for my mom on her 21st birthday! She’s 55. Can you believe that?! I can hardly keep a plant alive for a week, let alone over 30 years :)

    Dear God, I have the blackest thumb ever! I even killed a bamboo plant! You know, that plant that supposedly needs no upkeep or maintenance? Um, yeah. Dead dead dead. :(
