To Be In Love

02/16/2011 at 6:19 pm 42 comments

Not just with any specific person but with yourself. To love the hot summer days, the car drives with the windows down, the fun meals, long walks, and amazing conversations that you’ll never forget.

What I love about Miami are the breezy winter days that are filled with sun, warmth, and that big yellow sun  just waiting to greet you (for the most part).

Today was really one of those days were I just woke up and was really happy. I tend to sweat the small stuff but life is so short that sometimes we gotta let everything go, smile, and be blessed with what we have.

What I love about my boyfriend.

How he leaves his almost empty nut butter jar for me because he knows how much I love ooiaj. As silly as it seems, it touched me that he remembered and saved it. I love him for that.

I love my breakfast in the morning. My amazing bowl of Fage, yogurt, Kashi, bloobs, caramel dip, and little whipped cream to feel like dessert.

I love my bowl of oatmeal

Yes, there is oatmeal under there I swear!!!

Made with 1/2 cup oats, chocolate silk milk, cocoa powder, flax, and 1/2 of  a banana. I topped it with Cinnamon Oat Crunch Cereal, 1/2 vitatop, chocolate chips, and an almond butter finish.

I love my Wednesday morning weight training consisting of deadlifts, arnold presses, cable crunches, and leg raises. I love how I can lift a 135lb barbell from the floor and do 5 deadlifts. My body is in the best shape of my life and I owe it to weights.

I love my new shadowing experience at an Urgent Care Center where I’m learning about common skin infections, treatments, medications, strep throats, diagnosing, and patient care. I love to learn, and to one day help treat others.

Valentines Day opened my eyes to seeing the positives in my life and being grateful about every opportunity given to me. I’ve come to terms that when one door closes another better one will open. It’s more significant to try and fail then to never  have tried in the first place because trying gives you an advantage to being better prepared next time around.

Hope you all are having a fantastic humpday!!

  • 9. Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries  |  02/16/2011 at 10:06 pm

    I love happiness! I tend to sweat the small stuff, too – so I can totally relate to really enjoying the days where nothing seems to bother you! 🙂 I totally agree with weights being the #1 of getting the results you’re looking for. What is your cardio routine like? Do you do it on certain days?

    • 10. Jenny  |  02/17/2011 at 10:15 am

      I do cardio about 2-3x a week if I can. Usually on the weekends if I’m out with my bf I don’t but mostly tues and thurs are set for cardio. I don’t do like hardcore cardio, just maybe brisk walking or the elliptical, or the bike. Something to work up a sweat but not overtire my muscles 😉

  • 11. This Italian Family  |  02/16/2011 at 10:11 pm

    Aww, I love that your boyfriend left his PB jar for you! That is so precious. How thoughtful of him. 🙂

    I love that Valentine’s opened your eyes to the positives in life. What a blessing! 🙂

    • 12. Jenny  |  02/17/2011 at 10:16 am

      I can’t wait to use my jar! 😀

  • 13. whatkateiscooking  |  02/16/2011 at 10:18 pm

    Aw, I think that’s so sweet of your boyfriend to leave you the jar! It’s the little things in life 🙂

  • 14. Alycia [Fit n Fresh]  |  02/16/2011 at 10:20 pm

    Today, I made breakfast with my boyfriend. We don’t get to do it too much anymore, but I think there is something so sweet and fun making eggs in the kitchen with him (even if he DOES just watch lol)

  • 34. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin  |  02/17/2011 at 10:15 pm

    I love how just focusing on the small things can bring such happiness to a day! 😀

    Today I loved blasting my ipod and singing along to pass the time on my 2 hour drive!

  • 35. Tara  |  02/17/2011 at 10:58 pm

    Wow, 135 lbs!? That’s awesome! I’ve never done low rep lifting, but I can do about 15 with an 80 lb bar. High weight low rep scares me, so kudos to you for taking on that challenge!

    naturally more = love.

  • 36. simplynutritiouskate  |  02/17/2011 at 11:33 pm

    oh that oatmeal looks sooo amazing!

  • 37. allieatfood  |  02/18/2011 at 12:22 am

    Ahh so lucky that you live in Miami! What I wouldn’t do for some sunny weather like that ever day! Looks gorgeous. You’re smart for eating such a big breakfast, I’m so bad at doing that. Looks delish. Glad I’ve been brought to your blog 🙂
