I thought I might try something a little new here on Clean Eating Teen.
I love reading the Five Things Fridays on "Fitting it All In" and wanted to give it a shot! I think it is a fun and unique way to give a little versatility to my blog, and to give you guys some insight on my life and thinking.
I won't be doing the exact same format as Clare, but instead just post five things that I find worth sharing! :)
Five New Things I am Trying
LOL NOT MY CAR.
I get my license in June, and right now have a learners permit. Watch out Texas... this girl will soon be road-bound!
I talked about this in a recent post. So far things have been going alright, with a few bumps... for instance, I miscalculated something yesterday and my numbers were a bit off.
Today marks the beginning of my THIRD week counting macros. Lets hope I master the skill soon.
No need to explain here! I started a month or so ago to help loosen my muscles, aid in recovery, and overall let me have a farther range of motion to squat and such. So far I am really liking it!
Not Weighing Myself
Okay, so maybe this has not taken full effect yet...
It's a work in progress.
I really am trying to focus more on how I am FEELING versus how much I weigh. It plays with my head too much. I don't know if I have gained muscle (which is ideal) or not, and I can easily get upset. I want to give up the scale for good!
I am SUPER excited to be visiting my best friend Abby from Yes to Yummy in June. I will be traveling for the first time ever and couldn't be more thrilled. I am counting down the days until I get to see Abby and have the best time of my life cooking, learning, and having fun with her!!
Five of my Favorite Foods
Like, is this even a question? I think I have made it very clear of my nut butter obsession...
I have made own versions before, but they don't really stand against the stuff I get at the Indian or Middle Eastern restaurants. I don't know though, everything Indian over at Everyday Maven seems even better than going out...
Oh geez. I WISH I could just be fruititarian, but I don't think that would do my body any justice. My favorites are bananas, red apples, and most berries. But in all honesty I couldn't care less what kind of fruit it is, I'd eat it!
Sweet potato/winter squash.
Again, many a recipe has been posted here on Clean Eating Teen with acorn squash!! Oh jeez. I TOTALLY fell in love with Kabocha squash... I took that fad and ran with it.
Super unhealthy, artificially sweetened frosting from the Target bakery.
Okay... so I have a secret. Well, I guess not a secret anymore.
But I use to have an addiction. To thick, neon colored, artificially flavored frosting. I remember when I was young, and I would walk into Target and ask for some free frosting that they had leftover from making cakes or whatever.
Of course, I don't eat this NOW! I can totally make my own frosting, which tastes just as great. But the fake stuff will always have a special place in my heart.
Five Songs I've Been Loving
Living Room- Tegan and Sara
If you don't know Tegan and Sara, climb out from under your rock and FIND THEM. The most naturally talented duo I have ever seen... than you Taylor for loving them, and making me love them!
ANYTHING John Meyer
I guess I am late on joining this bandwagon but uh, I get it now!
Talk Dirty- Jason Derulo
I usually hate anything "pop" music related. But for some reason, this song is my jam. Great for leg day!
Dark Horse- 10 Second Song Version
I just found this video via my personal Facebook page and ITS AMAZING!
Cruise- Florida Georgia Line
This song is older than I thought? It came out in 2012 apparently. But in any case, I love the band and think they have a great sound. I am a fan of country in general and this is a nice modern twist on it.
How are you enjoying this Friday?
