Take Me Away

Half-way through the week!!!

1

This morning I used the power of positive thinking to get me out of bed. My body was sore all over from last nights intense circuit training! I had a 4 mile run this morning planned at 5:45 which meant I had to roll out of bed at 5:15am. Good thing I had this sticky note (thanks operation beautiful) to help me get pumped!!

There is nothing like a cool morning run to start off your day!
When I got back home I was in the mood for something sweet and crunchy!

In the mix: Greek Yogurt, Strawberries, Puffins Cereal, Zoes Granola, Sliced Almonds, and 1 tbsp of organic honey.

I am excited about tonight, I am helping plan a birthday dinner for a friend at work. We are making stuffed shells, Cesar salad, French bread, and playing a little Frank Sinatra in the mix! After dinner we are headed over to a new wine bar in town that I have been dying to go to. See you late tonight!

Have you ever been to a wine bar? What was your experience like?

Hubby’s Random Fact: There are more nutrients in the cornflake package itself than there are in the actual cornflakes

In Hawaii, the big Island last year for our one year anniversary (where I wouldn’t mind being right now)!

Ahhhh Hawaii. I wish I was there right now too. It's more than just the weather that draws me to Hawaii, it's the laid back vibe. LOVE IT there. :)

Which islands did you visit?

I want to go back to HI so so so badly! Aren't puffins the best? I just discovered them and really like them!

I haven't been to a wine bar yet. I'd like to go sometime though!

I love wine bars! I've been to quite a few here in NYC. What's fabulous about them are the wine experts who are able to tell you all about each wine. Sometimes they'll have wine tastings, too, which are even more fun because you get to experience all the different tastes and subtleties. Have fun tonight!

Hey Bobbi, I was wondering how you prepare the turkey sausage? Do you just saute it or do you add anything else to it (I see you added some BBQ sauce, anything else)?

You've inspired me to give the Making the Cut workout a try. If it's anything like her DVDs I know it will be tough but good. I'm not sure how easy it will be to do at my gym since when I go it is always busy but I think I might try it.

I have been to 1 wine bar called "Time in a Bottle." It was a nice, cozy spot. The wine was good, and the appetizers were decent.

I've never been to a wine bar, but I'd love to.

Frank Sinatra is one of my favorites.
