How To Roast Chickpeas

I posted this picture on instagram like 2 weeks ago and have been planning to do a recipe post for a while but just never got around to it.  It’s actually quite an easy process, you just need to experiment with the spices.  The first pictures of the ones I made and the second is the recipe!

Hot Bod 4 Week Challenge: Week 1 Review

SG in Bikini 3 edit

I hope Week 1 was awesome for all those that participated.  Week 1 was not very good for me though.  I ate food I wasn’t suppose to eat and didn’t workout. My cop out is school’s almost over for me and I have to do projects and study for finals but I still should have done better.

This week I’m gonna try and start insanity and continue running and eating healthy.  I’m going on vacation in 8 weeks so it’s crunch time.  I hate being unhealthy and not working out, I feel so lazy and gross.  Here is my workout schedule(but it is subject to change): Continue reading

SG in Bikini 3 edit

Summer’s just about here and I know I’m not ready for it.  But that’s okay because for the next 4 weeks both you and me will be busting our butts to get in awesome shape.  I have a list of guidelines that you can pick and choose which ones you want to follow. The ones I stress that you do are closer to the top of the list.  The challenge will run from June 2 to June 29.  I recommend not weighing yourself till the very end so that you will not be disappointed.  Base your results on how you feel and how your clothes fit for a better indication. Personally I will be following all these guidelines and I will hopefully show you my results.  The guidelines are: Continue reading

Life Update

I know I’ve been MIA with posts other than Half Marathon training  and I am so sorry.  My life has been hectic lately with APs and the half marathon and school.  I’ve been really overwhelmed and had no time to anything but study and workout.  Now I’m alittle better off because APs are over and my classes are starting to warm down in preparation for finals.  This means that I’ll have more time to post!  My creative juices have began to flow and I have so many ideas.  I’m also planning a huge summer haul so watch out for a twofer post, one about how to shop smart and one with everything I bought.  I’m planning to go to a Goodwill for the first time ever and plan on buying a ton of cheap stuff and DIY a ton of it.  I’ve been watching youtube videos and have tons of inspiration.

Half Marathon Training: 1 Weeks To Go!

This week was insane for me.  A combination of homework insanity, AP studying and allergies led to a pretty low mileage week.  I’m really nervous  and I cannot believe that race day is so soon.  I feel unprepared but my goal is to finish.  Whether there’s walking involved or not, I will get that medal and wear it proudly.  Here is my training schedule from this past week:  Continue reading

Half Marathon Training: 3 Weeks To Go!

Such a bad training week.  Was incredibly stressed from school(AP’s are coming up) and just couldn’t find the motivation to run.  This coming week I’ll be focused on balancing my eating, working out and school while keeping sane.  Here was my schedule for this past week: Continue reading

PS I’ve also been super busy lately so I’m sorry for the sparse posts.   Continue reading
