It's been a while since I posted because I've been super busy, but I promise to plan better and go back to posting 2-4 times a week soon!
I started a new job yesterday and I'm already off! For those who don't know, I live in Southern Louisiana, and today is Mardi Gras, so yes, we get off work for Mardi Gras. Yet another perk of living here. I am a terrible Mardi Gras'er this year though, no parades or anything Mardi Gras related. In my defense though, the weather's been crap.
So with today being Mardi Gras, Lent starts tomorrow. I'm not really religious, but I was brought up Catholic. I usually never give up anything for Lent but this year I think I am gonna do it big and give up cheat meals. That's 40 days of no cheats. I'm terrified of how I'll do this, but I'm gonna try none the less. I have that red bikini lurking and I've had to many cheat meals/days to ever wear that thing. Time to get serious.
Ohh and I wanna share my latest food find. I am absolutely obsessed with almonds lately. My favorites are Blue Diamond BBQ Habenero and Toasted Coconut. Then..I found this..I may be in love. No, no I am. I found these at Target, but they weren't available in the small jars so I bought the whole bag, knowing I'd love these. I want to lay in a bath tub filled with them maybe.
Before I go, I just discovered this amazing artist, ZZ Ward. My coworker told me about her yesterday and I've already downloaded 4 of her songs. This one is GREAT for cardio. Download it immediately. Your welcome.
