Things I’m Loving Thursday

July 28, 2011

It’s Thursday! Which means Friday is right around the corner and I’m loving that! Wanna know what else I’m loving?

Blue Cheese: Every time I order blue cheese for my salad at a restaurant, which I think is probably everytime, hubby remarks, “Ewwwwwww”. I know not everyone is a fan and blue cheese is an aquired taste, but I’ve definitely acquired it. I haven’t always been a blue cheese lover as a matter of fact. I actually used to turn my nose up at it like Hubby until one day one of my friends dared me to eat a whole ramekin full of it at a restaurant (cause that’s what immmature giggly really cool teenagers do at restaurants). I downed the whole thing and discovered “Hey, this stuff tastes pretty good!” and I’ve been hooked since. It’s not a new love of mine, but it certainly has been a love this week since I’ve almost polished off a whole container ala salad since I went to the grocery store last week.

Smith Machine : You’ve probably seen it lurking in the corner at your gym and you may be super intimidated by it, like I used to be, but once the fear of this machine was conquered I was hooked. The smith machine is so versatile you can get a total body workout with it through squats, lunges, chest press, shoulder upright rows, etc… The combinations are endless. It’s really easy to use and works like a built-in spotter which is great for trainers and gym-goers.

I’ve been enjoying doing Lauren’s 30 squats a day for 30 days challenge using the smith machine.

PB2: I just discovered this stuff and I’m in love! Powdered peanut butter- it’s quite the concept.

 Just add water and you’ve got peanut butter. Why didn’t I think of that?! I’ve been enjoying it in smoothie form just about everyday.

  • 1.5 cup spinach
  • 1 cup chocolate almond milk
  • 1 TB PB2
  • 1 handful of ice

Tastes like a reeses in a cup!!

What are you loving these days? Are you a fan of blue cheese, the smith machine, or PB2?

    oOHH Bleu cheese! I usually buy feta. It really changes a typical salad.
    I’ve tried to find PB2, I can’t find it anywhere around here.
    Happy weekend!

    I’ve never tried blue cheese (even though I’m a professed cheese lover) but I am obsessed with goat cheese. In my salad, on pasta, in a grilled cheese sandwich, out of the container….you know however. Have you tried goat cheese?
