Yesterday was the fourth of July! I hope everyone enjoyed their day. I know I did! I started off the morning picking raspberries at the local farm with my dad.
It was a hot one, but the berries were worth it!
Look how pretty they are!
This was our loot from the trip. Some raspberries made it onto the other dessert I made for the day. A brownie dessert pizza. It was a huge hit along with the Oreos!
I tried to get a little creative with the decorating. Creativity is not usually my forte but I enjoyed testing out my abilities on this dessert.

Yesterday afternoon I went on my first bike ride with my tri-bike. And I would dub it successful with only one cut and one almost fall off the bike in town. I have to say I am surprised how different it felt. I'm very thankful I have time to train with the bike. The hunching over is a big adjustment along with how to stop without falling off and start in a timely manner. But I'll keep practicing!!

After my bike ride I went on a different kind of bike ride with my dad...a motorcycle bike ride. My dad has a Harley and one of my favorite things to do, especially when it's nice out, is to go for a ride on the Harley with my dad. We went to go visit my Nana and Pop, his parents, for a little while.

On the way home we had a little mishap. We ran out of gas right outside of our neighbor luckily. My brother came and saved us with some gas to get us home.
Quickly after I got home I threw together some quinoa to add with my fish taco mix to make a little quinoa fish taco bowl. It was yummy!!
Adding quinoa with leftovers to make a little bowl of yumminess is a great idea!

The rest of my night consisted of hanging out with the girls. If you haven't figured out by now the girls are Carly, Nicole and Rose, and usually Ellen but she's in France! We went to Rose's house while her dad grilled us up some veggie burgers and corn on the cob. It really hit the spot! You just have to grill on the fourth of July and just cause you are a vegetarian doesn't you can't cookout. I've even got my friends into Boca burgers! We later went to watch the Harrisburg fireworks and finished the night with a couple episodes of friends. You can't just watch one!

Today I got up early to go teach class. And it was a hot one out and the kids were enjoying it even less than I was, but we made it through. After that I really wanted to get in a good workout at PF. I started with 45 minutes on the stepper doing a hill program. Then I went and did about 15-20 minutes of upperbody weights and finished with 20 minutes on the treadmill with speed intervals. And I finished with some abs as always.

For lunch I sautéed a bunch of veggies together. I believe I had some broccoli, peppers, mushrooms, onions and tomatoes, and I put them on a plate with baby spinach on top of the veggies. I then made an egg and put the egg on top of the spinach and top with a little asiago three cheese blend. This meal was great because the runny yolk served essentially as the dressing for the salad. It was tasty and filling. There were so many flavors and textures too which completed the dish. I also had it was a glass of almond milk, my new favorite drink, and a cup of fruit which had watermelon, blueberries and raspberries. I ended up saving those for an hour later because I was so full.
The veggies underneath are hiding. Trust me there are a bunch under there.
Anyone else into almond milk?!

While enjoying my lunch and waiting for Nicole to come over for more stats I watched the Olympic trials. I saw Michael Phelps win a race. His major competition Ryan Lochte I believe his name is, is quite the looker!! I'm glad he made it in the team!

I finished the night with my girls watching Hercules, the cartoon yes. We are not ashamed to admit our sometimes childish qualities, instead we embrace them! Most of us had never even seen the movie and it was actually really good. I'll gladly show my kids that one!

Now you are probably reminiscing about your favorite Disney movie...care to share?!

Tomorrow it is trip number two of the week for me! This one is solo and to New Jersey where I am going to visit my roommate for this coming year, Erica! I am so excited I hope I can get some sleep.

And on that note...night all :)
