Spiders, Strawberries & Sun

Strawberries & sun sound like the definition of summer…spiders…not so much. 

Last night at 1 am, just as I had turned off all my lights & settled into my warm and cozy bed watching Chelsea Lately (anyone else love that show?) I saw something large crawl up my wall. I thought it was one of those disgusting potato bugs, but it was jet black. Once I got up out of my warm and cozy bed I realized it was….a spider!!!! This thing was huge. And honestly, the picture doesn’t do it justice.


Then this morning I woke up and there was a potato bug on the floor. I didn’t have time to take a picture before I kindly escorted it out of my room. I don’t know why icky bugs think they’re welcome in this house but it needs to stop!

Now that you all have really huge appetites after that picture, I’ll move on to breakfast. Last night I was craving a yogurt bowl…so I was really excited to make one this morning!


The Mix:

1 cup greek yogurt

.5 tbsp agave to sweeten

handful of strawberries

handful of blueberries

1/4 cup granola w/ almonds

scoop of Naturally Nutty butter toffee peanut butter

I first tried greek yogurt about a week ago and I have to admit, I wasn’t too sure about it. The taste takes some getting used to, but I’ve found that if I add a little bit of agave it tastes perfect. I really don’t like yogurt on its own (just another weird food on it’s own like yesterday), but when different tastes textures are mixed in I love it! I think the fact that many yogurts have too much added sugar is another reason I don’t really like yogurt. Recently I tried a blueberry yogurt (don’t remember the brand) that was sitting in the fridge and it was way too sweet, even though it was supposed to be a healthier brand! I guess I’m just not used to a ton of sugar anymore.

I’m not sure what lunch will be because at work tomorrow we are going on a field trip! I am packing some carrot sticks, an apple and a peach.


Later tonight I plan on working out on the elliptical at home. It’s so great to have an elliptical, treadmill and stationary bike in my house! It’s like my own personal gym away from other people’s sweat. Typically, I like working out in the mornings because it sets a healthy tone for the rest of the day. I don’t think i’ve ever eaten fast food or a big chunk of chocolate cake after working out in the morning…I’d just feel silly! I never wake up at an insanely early hour of the day to work out, but I think anything between a 9am-12pm class would count as a morning workout. Before my work schedule changed I went to yoga everyday at noon and I loved it!

Do you prefer morning or evening workouts? 

Are there any bugs you absolutely can’t stand?
