Bestowed Box {1/14}

Happy Monday! How did ya’ll start your week? I started mine with a good breakfast and a strength workout.

DSC_1205I had two whole grain Nutrigrain Waffles and some mixed frozen fruit.

And one of my favorite coffees!

DSC_1206Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Coffee has been my new favorite way to begin the mornings. I think it is funny that we are in mid-January and I’m still loving anything pumpkin I can get my hands on! I guess I didn’t get enough of it during the fall months?

For my strength workout I completed this simple circuit:

PicMonkey Collage (1)

I also warmed up with 10 minutes on the elliptical.

After my workout, I refueled with a Peach Chobani with a little granola.



While I ate my yogurt, I finished Insurgent, the second book in the Divergent series, and I plan on starting the last of the books tomorrow. I’m having a bit of a hard time with these books. I’m emotionally attached to the characters, so I start to feel as if I’m in the book, but that’s one of the things I love about reading!

Anyway, after I finished the book, I met up with my friends in the caf for lunch. I had a small bowl of clam chowder with a couple crackers crumbled on top.


It was alright. To be honest, I prefer the Progresso version over whatever this kind was.

After lunch, I checked my mail(and I had a package that I’ll share in a bit), and stopped by the campus Starbucks for an iced Passion tea.


And then I made a quick trip to Wal-mart to buy the components I’ll need for my uniform at my new job! Ahh! I’m so excited! When I returned from the store, I watched Ellen while I tried out one of my Trader Joes Dark Chocolate Chunk Almond Cookies.


They were good. Much better choice than the other cookie options out there.

Then dinner was another salad, but no picture. It was basically the same as last nights, but with diced boiled egg for some protein. I had a some reading to do for homework, so I decided that I would have a little ice cream to fuel my studying.


And remember those reusable baking cups I was sent last month to review? Well, they are also great for portioning out ice cream. This was my new favorite by Blue Bunny: No Sugar Added Bunny Tracks! MmmmMmmMmm!!

And that package I mentioned earlier? I finally renewed my Bestowed box Subscription, and I received my  January box today!



I can’t wait to try all the goodies in this months box! Everything looks fantastic!

Now I’m sitting down to watch X-Men Origins while snacking on some toast. Catcha later gaters! 😉
