Swap It Out Sunday

There is nothing like ruining healthy, nutritious vegetables with ranch dip!  There is nothing better than a good snack of fresh broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, tomatoes, etc!  But think twice before you load up on that dip…

Personally, I think the hummus tastes better any way and comes in countless varieties.  There is a difference of 50 calories per serving between the two and the hummus has a lot more nutritional benefit to offer!  Next time you go for a veggie snack, reach for that hummus first (your bikini will thank you)!

Finally got my race photos together from Atlanta.  My faces are priceless as always!

Last day for this giveaway y’all!  Please give me some good challenge ideas!!  We haven’t gotten much response (so even better chance of a win)!

Worth it? I Think Yes

One of my very best friends from home came into town Thursday night and stayed until this morning.  I had a class Friday morning so we just hung out the first night and planned to have a real good time on Saturday.

My friends JK and Lindsey and their other halves joined us all our for dinner at a new restaurant downtown called The Rarebit.  The food was really good and fairly inexpensive but the drinks were outrageous!  My drink actually cost more than my food which kinda blew my mind.  Good to know for next time though so we can just eat there and drink somewhere else.

After dinner we did some bar hopping around town.  Saw a good (well I thought good, Casey is a much harder critic) band, watched the basketball games and proceeded from there.  I can honestly say that it is one of the most fun nights I have had in Charleston.

However, a really late, fun night almost always spells a really late, really lazy, not so good morning.  All were true today, but for once it was worth it.  My only regret was how beautiful it was today and how this body was NOT going for a run.  You win some you lose some I guess.

Tomorrow I will return to normal, it is crazy how one day of drinking and not eating so great and not exercising (minus walking Ryan around downtown for a bit) can make you feel so terrible.  I feel like I have gained 10 pounds since yesterday even though I know that isn’t possible.  Thank god we only go do things like this once in a blue moon!!

Don’t forget, tomorrow is the last day to enter for the give away.  Post your best fitness challenge idea as a comment to win a slow cooker!!
