Behind the Scenes #13: Greek Yogurt Everywhere


I ♥ Thinking Out Loud and I ♥ Amanda for hosting it!

1. Well, the warm weather has fled. I’m disappointed. At least it didn’t snow though, because we’ve finally been able to revel in the fact that icebergs aren’t taking up half the road anymore. It definitely could be worse, but the snow just passed us, and only rain has fallen. Out goes the snow, in come the potholes!

2. On a similar note, I get slightly stressed when the street lights reflect off wet roads, obstructing my view of the road markings. I have to drive much more slowly, and you would think that others do as well, but I almost feel like drivers are more aggressive when it’s dark and rainy. I say a prayer every time I drive in such weather.

3. I decided to drive in these conditions last night just to get to Trader Joe’s. I could have gone to a closer store to pick up the groceries, but I kinda wanted to get almond butter and sunflower seed butter. Cuz, uh, dad likes almond butter. 😉

4. I’ve been hearing singing birds! I don’t like seeing the birds up close (they’re pretty scary, let’s be honest), but their chirps are a true blessing.

5. Is it sad that my right forearm is sore from playing badminton in physical education? My forearms and wrists are WEAK.

6. I had to buy school lunch yesterday since I forgot to pack my sandwich. It reminded me why I haven’t bought school lunch all year.

The turkey was  salty, and there was some highly questionable yellow coloring throughout. The mashed sweet potatoes were alright, and I did eat those green beans because I was desperate for veggies. I could have bought a made-to-order Boar’s Head deli sandwich, but I was feelin’ cheap. (I made up for it at Trader Joe’s though…)

7. I’m finding Greek yogurt stains throughout the kitchen, which means two things: 1- I’m obsessed (to state the obvious).  2-I’m a messy person. Which was evident in this post when I showed you how my laptop likes to eat my food.

8. I had this delicious bowl of Greek yogurt, banana slices, chia, hemp, banana applesauce muffin, and sunflower seed butter yesterday morning:


But I didn’t finish it at home before I had to drop off dad at the train station, so I brought it with me in the car. Call me crazy. It’s definitely not as portable as overnight oats in a jar, but I made sure it was snug behind my backpack in the back seat so there was a lower chance of projectile motion if {God forbid} anything were to happen. #makeitwork

Hm, maybe this is why I find Greek yogurt stains everywhere.

9. I’ve been working on modified pistol squats to a low box (which is still KILLER), so I’m hoping to get them without any assistance one of these days! Unless my short achilles decide otherwise.

10. Here’s a real behind the scenes look at me blogging at school:

Photo creds to my girl, Kristi!

Hope you all have a great Thursday! Thursdays are the new Fridays it seems, right??

So tell me:

Which store do you make a “sacrifice” to go to?

Do you find remnants from a certain food seemingly everywhere?

What are you thinking about today?
