Snowy Day = Warm Eats!

Today is definitely one of those days were you just want to stay in, sip some hot tea, and watch cheesy romantic comedies....I may just do that ;)

What is your favorite romantic comedy???

It also happens to be one of those days to eat warm foods! So of course this morning I had to make me up some FRENCH TOASTS! So I mixed together my 2 egg whites, 1/4 cup vanilla soy milk, and cinnamon...

And there you have it...the PERFECT warm in your tummy breakkie for a cold snowy day! <333

After breakfast I lounged around a little and decided to get up off my butt and hit the gym. It was another one of those day were I really had to motivate myself the whole way there but once I got there I got in a pretty good workout, which is usually how it happens, once I get jump started I can just keep going and going and going....ok, maybe not THAT much, but you gets what I'm sayin. My workout was:

  • 35 minutes on the eliptical
  • 30 minutes doing intervals on the bike.

So over an hour...not too shabbyyy for starting out being less than enthused about it. I usually try to spend at least an hour at the gym when I go. I mix my cardio days and weight training days, so on cardio days I'll do an hour of cardio, and on weight days I'll do 30 min. of cardio and 30 min. of weights.

By the time I got home it was starting to full on snow! The college even canceled classes for tonight...which RARELY happens. I think we are supposed to get around 7 inches! I was hungry and in the mood for something warm when I got home so I made a toasty sammie.

This one had deli sliced turkey, spicy mustard, deli american cheese, LOADS of spinach, and salsa. With a side of sun dried tomato wheat thins.

Also, HangryPants is having an almond butter giveaway contest...so go check that out.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday! I'm supposed to hear back about that job that I interviewed for today, so keep your fingers cross for me pahleezzzeee!! much love to you beautiful girlies, mwah! <3

Great blog! My favorite romantic comedies is anything with either Kate Hudson or Owen Wilson! Love them both but You, Me & Dupree is probably my favorite.

Mica said...

Fingers are crossed, for sure!

Ooh, 7" of snow. We haven't quite had that yet (I think). Good thing you're staying warm with French toast and sammies. (By the way--the French term for "French toast" is "pain perdu" or "lost bread" literally. Thought you might want to know...?)

My fingers are crossed for you. It's hard typing when you're fingers are crossed.
By the way I'm trying to give up milk and turn to soy milk. Does the vanilla milk taste like normal milk with a hint of vanilla?

Your French toast looks DIVINE, as usual. Yum!

My favorite romantic comedy is "The Apartment" with Jack Lemon & Shirley Maclaine... it's old, but it's brilliant.
