I Miss These Kinds of Posts + My New Favorite Salad Dressing

I haven’t posted twice in one day since before school started I think! I’ve actually really missed the multiple posts in a day because I just get to rant and chat with you all about life’s little things. Also, I haven’t been talking about my daily moves (workouts) and grooves (whatever else is going in my life, like food) as much. So I’m taking advantage of my extra time this Christmas break to talk to you guys more! And if you’d like, you can listen and talk to me too 🙂

Breakfast

I’ve been going to bed no earlier than around 1 AM in the past few days. The best part? It’s not because of insomnia! It’s mostly because I’ve been sleeping in and there’s no stress to get up early. Three cheers for Christmas break!!!

Late risings mean late breakfasts. I had my breakfast at around 11:30 AM…heh.

After not eating a full meal for over 12 hours, I was pretty darn hungry! I fixed myself some sunflower seed toast with coconut oil, a drizzle of honey, and cinnamon (<— DO THIS), Greek yogurt with a small banana, and then a bowl of cereal because I was still hungry. Such a delicious way to start my morning  afternoon!

New Car

After reading blogs and doing nothing entirely productive besides washing dishes, I found that my parents came home with a new van! Our old 2003 Honda Odyssey’s tires got smoked in the accident last week, and it was pretty dated anyway. The new Odyssey is spacious and shinyyyyy. But our garage smells like new car, which for some reason kinda makes me want to gag.

Moves

Pre-workout fuel:

Homemade granola bar

I headed to the gym where I did 20 minutes on the elliptical and a 15 minute incline walk on the treadmill. I was thinking of going for 25 minutes on the incline walk, but I got a HUGE cramp at 15 minutes that I just couldn’t shake off, so I just stopped. Then I did some bodyweight leg circuits that included TRX pistol squats, weighted wall sits, and hamstring ball curls. ‘Twas a slow but sure burn.

Lunch

…If you call a meal at 5 PM lunch. Is it “linner?” Either way, it was delicious because it involved my new favorite salad dressing that is super simple and quick to prepare!

I had a salad with some soft boiled eggs and a side of leftover roasted potatoes and carrots. The salad was dressed with a fabulous homemade honey mustard dressing. I don’t even bother to mix the dressing separately or measure anything— I just add all the ingredients right into the salad and toss! I put in (approximately):

  • 1-2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. spicy brown mustard
  • drizzle of honey
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Very precise, I know. Basically, just adjust the honey and mustard to taste, and you’re good to go!

Also, did you know that soft boiled eggs can keep quite well in the fridge? My mom cooked some up a couple days ago, and the yolks stay viscous and creamy!

So…I guess I’ll be having dinner at, like, 9 PM? Eh, that’s not too crazy.

I hope you have a lovely evening!

So tell me:

Do you like it when bloggers post more daily life posts? I know I enjoy them!

What is your favorite homemade salad dressing?

Do you ever keep soft boiled eggs in the fridge, or just hard boiled?

  1. Loving the double post today!👍👍 and my favorite salad dressing is using whatever sauce we are having with the meal. It sounds so strange but like tomato sauce if we are having pasta or gravy/marinade from a meat dish we are eating. Wow that even sounds strange typing it out but I promise it’s tasty!
    That coconut oil/honey/cinnamon on toast concoction looks delicious! Going to try it!

  2. I’m a food voyeur…I love seeing what other people are eating so yes, I like daily life/food posts. I love soft and hard boiled eggs and boil a batch to refrigerate on a regular basis. Have you every tried Chinese Tea Eggs? They are easy to make and a lovely alternative to your regular boiled egg. I make a batch every other week. Enjoy your holiday break! Any time spent relaxing is not time wasted.

  3. That’s awesome about the eggs! I’ve been thinking I wanted to add some eggs to my salads but hard boiled get so grainy…I’m going to have to try this. Have fun with your…didnight snack? I tried!

  4. i love having more to read !! i actually never have a proper salat dressing i just drizzle some different ingredient over my salat to taste haha but yours looks worth trying out! great post 🙂
