Good morning and Happy Monday! The sun is shining today, and I’m in better spirits :) Thanks for all the Happy Anniversary wishes, so nice of you all!

Yesterday evening Ben and I got severe cabin fever so we went to Borders to look around for awhile. Then we headed over to Chipotle, got ourselves some burrito bowls and brought them home to eat. I started eating Chipotle in Minneapolis, and let me tell you, it is just fantastic. All the ingredients are completely fresh, unprocessed, family-farmed, sustainable, organic and 100% delish! My only gripe is they give you enough to feed a small army – or if you’re me, enough to feed you twice! I ate half my portion for dinner, and am eating the other half today for lunch. My burrito bowl consists of:

  • Rice
  • Black beans
  • Tomatillo Green-Chili Salsa
  • Fresh Tomato Salsa
  • Chipotle chicken























It was so fresh and had so many bright flavors I definitely could have eaten the whole thing, but that would not have been a very wise decision ;) My favorite items in this bowl are the Fresh Tomato Salsa, which is packed with cilantro, and the Chipotle chicken which is really smoky and charred. For lunch I also packed a crispy, sliced Braeburn apple.



This morning I had hmmmm, yep – the best bowl of oatmeal I’ve ever made! Super creamy, sweet, exotic and crunchy due to the following ingredients:

  • ½ cup Oats
  • 1 cup Milk/water
  • 1 medium banana
  • Generous sprinkle of Cinnamon
  • Splash of vanilla
  • Toasted almonds
  • Toasted coconut
  • Maple syrup (star ingredient!)

I miss this bowl already, it was so good!


I totally slacked off on working out and running in the second half of last week – darn! This is going to be an insane week in terms of things I need to get accomplished, but I’ve got to make working out a priority. I find the longer I go without working out and/or running, the harder it is to get back into a routine. I’m kicking off my routine with a walk during lunch today – yes!

Do you all have a workout routine you like to stick to? How do you feel when you miss workouts or fall out of your routine?

Have a suuuuuper Monday!
