Smoothies and Omelets

Good morning! I can’t believe it’s Saturday already. That means in two days I will be back at work. Until spring break. Oh wait, I’m not in college anymore. I don’t get a spring break, do I? Ok this is depressing, let’s not talk about this anymore.

On a more positive note, I am finally getting the relaxation that I have needed on this vacation. I am still trying to fit in a little exercise, but taking advantage of having very little set plans and pampering myself. I tagged along with Brooke to her gym on Thursday for a class she takes called Strike. Oh em gee. I am NOT as coordinated as I thought I was. It was fun over all though and definitely nice to switch it up from the usual running/abs routine I am used to. And I am still feeling sore from the workout.

After our class, Brooke and I grabbed protein shakes from the cafe at the gym. Blueberry-raspberry for me and strawberry-banana for Brooke.

Yum. Brooke’s boyfriend Adam got me some vanilla protein powder for Christmas, so I am excited to get back home and start making my own protein shakes for breakfast! I think yogurt and bananas with the powder will make a great smoothie. If you make your own, do you have any ingredient suggestions??
One thing I love about being home (in Columbus that is), besides spending time with family and catching up with friends, is eating at my favorite restaurants that they don’t have in Charleston. One of which being First Watch
First Watch on Urbanspoon
This was our first stop after getting off the plane. While I normally would have the Trifecta (waffle, but I sub a pancake instead, bacon and eggs), I knew I also would be hitting up Bob Evans while I was home and wanted to save my pancake craving for that trip. Instead, I got the Healthy Turkey omelet served with an english muffin.
I wasn’t sure if the omelet would be satisfying enough, but it was better than I imagined. This was my first omelet from First Watch and will not be my last. As much as I love the Trifecta, the omelet won me over. The one disappointment I had was that they ran out of the muffin of the day, which was blueberry- my favorite. I always look forward to their muffins, but had to settle for the english muffin instead. Oh well, at least it was healthier….if you care about that kind of thing.
After eating out for just about every single meal for the past week, I refuse to eat out today. I am in detox mode and looking forward to feeling like normal again. Even if it is just for today, because tomorrow is Bob Evans time!! But THEN I will really get back on track 😉
Hope you have a great time celebrating the new year tonight!
