No Brainer

Good Morning! How’d everyone’s weekend go? Can you guys even believe that we’re already into the second half of 2012? Crazy.

Here’s a little peek at what was happening around here over the weekend…

A fun weekend, indeed!


Lots of good stuff happening this morning.


This meal was basically a no-brainer. Whenever there’s homemade banana bread in the house, that’s most definitely eaten for breakfast. Plus, when your fridge is stocked with this much Chobani…


…you just can’t resist. I received this amazing package in the mail on Friday from my lovely Chobani friends, and I’m totally stoked. For some reason, I’ve only really been buying vanilla or plain lately, so the reintroduction of flavors is very much welcomed.

Today: a pineapple Chobani + blueberries and a piece of Low-Fat Banana Bread + peanut butter.


I had actually meant to grab a lemon flavored CHO out of the fridge, since I’m a major fan of the lemon + blueberry combo, but I didn’t even realize it was the pineapple one until I took this photo right here.


Good thing I’m nice and alert this morning…

Good news – the pineapple + blueberry combo is just as good. I love the pineapple flavor as it is (the 2% is just soooooo good), so I wasn’t surprised.

Before breakfast even went down, I made sure to get in a workout for the day. I brought back an old favorite today…my On The Ball Pilates DVD.


I realized, after looking through some old posts, that I haven’t done this video since September 22, 2010?!? I don’t know whether or not that’s true, but I know it definitely has been a long time, so I’m sure my abs will be feelin’ it tomorrow.

I combined the 30-minute pilates DVD with this 30-minute treadmill routine before calling it a day.

I’ve got some work to take care of this morning before heading out later to meet up with my friend Eileen. If you follow me on Facebook, then you already know what we’re up to…to say I’m excited is an understatement. Winking smile

But also just as exciting? The giveaway I have headed your way later this afternoon. (I know, right? Another giveaway?) I have a feeling that all of my fellow fashionistas are going to be totally in to this one!

Question for the Morning:

Now that 2012 is halfway over, what have been some highlights of your year so far?

    graduating, moving flats, getting together with my boyfriend, finding not one but two jobs, taking up running… First half of 2012 has definitely been eventful!

  2. says

    I’m a big fan of the stability ball, especially when I’m having issues with my back. One of the best pieces of exercise equipment out there, so versatile & makes things fun when you can change them up.

    Best thing about 2012: My husband passed the bar exam, so after years of sacrifice & hard work, he’s FINALLY an attorney! Relief, of the highest order.

    The first half of 2012 went by so fast. My highlight so far is been relaxing and getting my golf swing down to a science. I can’t believe it is half way done. Thanks for posting that pic of the abs.

  4. Megan says

    Magic Mike is excellent! Plot could have been developed a little more but honestly that doesn’t matter to much ;]

  5. says

    I know, I cannot believe it is half over! Highlights so far – going to Arizona for a week in March and truly just relaxing there, and going hiking for the first time a few days ago.

    Highlights have been really getting settled in Dallas and making some great friends! Also my husband has finished his intern year of residency! Looking forward to the rest of year!

  7. Catherine says

    saw magic mike last night, and hate to say it, but it was no where as good as i what i expected! & the previews make you think a completely different plot is going to happen! Besides the obvious man candy, I just thought it was weird!

    I wish I could get cases of Chobani!!!!

  8. says

    Yum! That breakfast looks amazing! So jealous of your homemade banana bread! The pineapple chobani is actually my favorite flavor! I love how creamy it is! I can’t believe the year is already halfway over…time has been flying lately! Some of the highlights have been starting my own blog and nutrition business! Graduating with my Master’s in Nutrition, and continuing to love CrossFit! Happy July!

    I got engaged in February (first half of 2012) and I’m getting married in November (second half of 2012)! Good year, indeed :)

    Is anyone else seeing the “This site proudly backed up by WP site care” graphic printed over the text of these recent posts?! What’s goin on?!

  11. says

    No you are not the only who wants to see magic mike. I just moved to vegas where I know NO ONE so I’m trying to figure out a way to go see it alone without looking like a creeper… I don’t think that’s going to be possible though!

    Highlights of 1/2 of 2012 include completing my sophomore year of high school, celebrating my 1/2 birthday, and vacation to Cape Cod last week.

    Enjoy the movie with your friend- I haven’t seen it but it will probably be a while because I’m not permitted to enter an R rated movie yet.
