A great semester comes to an end…

Hey everyone! My first semester of college is complete and I’m home for the next month for Winter Break! I’m so happy now that I have no more stress from exams, or anything school-related and I can simply RELAX.

Or at least until Dec.19 when my online class starts. Sex, Health and AIDS should be interesting…

And until I see my final grades for the semester. I’m happy that I did fairly well. All A’s and B’s woooo!

Anyways, a lot has happened since I last posted. I have a new part-time job with Herbalife as a distributor. Herbalife is a growing nutrition and wellness company that sells products ranging from protein shakes and bars to skin care products and energy and fitness supplements.  The company targets weight management through good nutrition and personal health.

It’s really exciting because on January 10th, FabULife Nutrition Club is opening a store on campus where all of the distributors at the U of A will be able to work and sell Herbalife products and smoothies.

A few products I’ve tried which have all been amazing are the chicken soup, the chocolate peanut butter and vanilla almond protein bars, Lift-off, the herbal aloe concentrate, and the shampoo and conditioner.

These bars are nutrition packed with only 140 calories and 10 g of protein per bar.

The Herbalife soup packets are also great because they have 16 g of protein and not as much sodium as you would see in a regular can of soup. Only 80 calories as well!

This particular product comes in individually packaged tablets that helps with energy sustainability and mental clarity. I placed one tablet in about 8 oz of water and drank this before my workout this morning.

I definitely noticed a difference!

This one is lemon-lime flavor. Tastes just like sprite!

Anyways, here are today’s eats so far…

Breakfast

Big bowl of cereal with KASHI GoLean, Heirloom whole grain flakes, and Arrowhead Mills Puffed Wheat cereal with blueberries and raspberries

After breakfast, I headed to the gym for a much-needed workout. Finals week left me with little time to exercise, so I’m glad that I can get back on track while at home for the break.

Workout

30 minutes on the elliptical

30 minutes on the treadmill

🙂

Lunch

When I got home, I was famished so I made one of my old favorites.

Peanut butter and sliced bananas on squaw bread with a side of carrots!

MMMMmmm!!


My plan for the rest of the day is to relax and spend time with my family. I’ll be back tonight with a dinner post so stay tuned! 🙂

Curried Chicken Salad Sandwich Take 2

Hi Everyone!!

These past few days have been super hectic. Late last night, Dad, Alana, Jeremy and I drove my mom to LAX. She had to go back to Cleveland, OH to visit my granny who’s sick 😦 She’s 94!

I woke up pretty late… 9:30 – and made THIS masterpiece!

Breakfast

MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE OMELETTE

After doing some more Bar Mitzvah stuff, I made lunch using leftover curried chicken from dinner last night.

I turned it into my recreation of the Curried Chicken Salad Sandwich I had at Urth on July 4th.

All I did was chop up 2 celery stalks, add in 1/4 cup of raisins (soaked in hot water), and mixed in 2 T of olive oil based mayonnaise. I definitely could have eaten it like this… BUT I needed some carbs!!

Lunch

Toasting the whole grain bread made lunch even more yummy 🙂

After lunch, I decided I needed to stock up on a few ESSENTIALS…

(from left to right) Apples, Jump Start Bar, Canned Soup (Amy’s Brand are my favorite), Van’s Light Waffles, Soymilk, Applesauce (no sugar added!), broccoli, and strawberries.

I love this homemade bar. No artificial stuff!

Yesterday, I made Anne’s Almond Butter Banana Bars for breakfast. They were delicious and a huge hit in my house! I snacked on a leftover one when I got home 🙂


Dinner

Simple salmon seasoned with pepper, pasta, and some broccoli that I bought today 🙂

After dinner, I was craving something sweet, so Alana, Jeremy and I shared some cupcakes we picked up from the Cupcakery yesterday.

Gingerbread, Red Velvet, and Chocolate Chip! Yumm.

Now, I’m gonna finish up watching Juno! Haven’t seen that movie in SO long! Goodnight 🙂
