Happy Thursday everyone! Its almost the weekend! Anyone got anything exciting planned? I’ve got a few things planned I can’t wait to share with you. In the meantime, I started my day by dropping my car off to get the oil changed. After that I had a quiz in finance (which I was so relived to have done well on!) and then I headed to aerobics for our fitness evaluations. We took one at the beginning of the semester and then took the one today to track our progress. I was so happy to find out I’ve lost 4.5 pounds and 1% of my body fat. Its not much but for not making an effort to lose weight it felt really good!
My dad picked me up from school since my car was still at the shop. When I got home I had a bowl of multi-grain cheerios with blackberries for lunch.
Along with a piece of wheat bread toasted with almond butter, apple pepper jelly, and a half of a banana. It was great.
After going to pick up my car, which was good to go without any problems, I came home and decided to use a tool I’ve never used before to help make dinner.
A food processor! I had way too much fun using this. I ground up a can of chickpeas to add to some pasta to make it a little heartier, healthier, and give it a protein boost.
I used these Barilla pasta elbows that I love for even more protein. One serving has 17 grams! I really try and make a conscious effort to make sure I’m always getting enough protein now that I’m not eating meat.
I sauteed the chickpeas and a cut up red pepper for a few minutes while the pasta boiled.
And then added the noodles and some of my favorite vodka sauce and a few handfuls of cheddar cheese.
It was so delicious and filling and hearty. I will definitely be making this again!
Sorry if this post seems rushed, I have been super distracted tonight. I’m going to the midnight showing of Breaking Dawn with my friend Grace! So excited to see Bella and Edward’s wedding!
And speaking of weddings, I just found out one of my best friends, Summer, just got engaged to her boyfriend Sean! I am so excited for them!! She was featured on my blog when Josh and I went to visit them in the Poconos this past summer. They are such an adorable couple and I am so happy for them!
Question of the Day: Are you a Twilight fan? Any plans to see this movie? Its supposed to be great!
