Memorial Weekend Fun

05/31/2011 at 12:08 pm 62 comments

I’m back!!! Smile

Thank you guys so much for all the help and support in my last post. It’s reassuring to know I’m not the only one who gets anxiety when I go on vacation. Overall I had a great time but the food situation left my body frazzled. I didn’t want to show up taking food of my own since they had bought so many things but I did bring Luna Bars and a few Special K bars in case I got the munchies. The Luna Bars really came in handy since I wasn’t getting enough protein. I’m happy to be back with a tan and a fridge full of veggies. The sad part is that this is what people eat everyday, my body needs foods with substance, not chips and dip.

My breakfast this morning tasted better than ever.

Overnight chocolate strawberry banana oats (Naked)

Topped with yogurt covered pretzsels, peanuts, and cinnamon raisin pb

(Money Shot!!)

Sunshine Key was amazing. We went fishing, hit the beach, snorkeled, and saw this gorgeous sunset

It was great to spend time with my best friends for the whole weekend but I did miss my boyfriend, my bed, and my fridge! My body is kind of hating me right now so I’m gonna give it the love it needs and refuel it with lots of fruits, veggies, and whole grain foods. Zumba class really did me good this morning, I needed to work up a sweat. Smile

What did you do for Memorial Weekend?

I have a lot of blog catch up to do!! Missed you all

    I love working out after a long weekend like that. Sweating is sometimes the best therapy πŸ™‚
    Sounds like you had a great time!

  • 2. keepnthefaith  |  05/31/2011 at 12:21 pm

    Glad you had a good time and didn’t let the fact that you didn’t have YOUR food get to you too much!! Its good to be free sometimes and let your body indulge. Now its time to get back to that good stuff :):)

    • 3. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:13 pm

      Omg yes can’t wait πŸ˜€

  • 4. runningtothekitchen  |  05/31/2011 at 12:21 pm

    Felt the same way after our trip to Ireland. I just stocked the fridge with an insane amount of fruit and veggies to make up for all the indulgence on vacation!

  • 5. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin  |  05/31/2011 at 12:30 pm

    It sounds like it was an awesome weekend! I’m glad you were able to enjoy it despite the food situation. It must feel good to get back to fresh food and exercise though! πŸ˜€

    • 6. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:13 pm

      I’m happy to be home πŸ™‚

  • 7. Colleen  |  05/31/2011 at 12:30 pm

    You’re back!! I’m glad you had a fun weekend, despite the overload on chips and dip πŸ˜‰ I think this morning’s oats totally made up for it πŸ™‚

    • 8. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:13 pm

      They did, yum!

  • 9. Alexandra  |  05/31/2011 at 12:31 pm

    Your breakfasts are always so colorful and incredible looking! I swear, every time I come on your blog I drool a little haha πŸ˜€ So glad you had an amazing weekend! Glad you’re back!

    • 10. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:13 pm

      Haha glad you like em πŸ˜€

  • 11. ThE DiVa DiSh  |  05/31/2011 at 1:08 pm

    Glad you had such a great time! That sunset looks beautiful!
    ANd I have to add, you always make the best looking bowls of food with the most delectable deliciousness of toppings πŸ™‚ I am super jealous!!

    • 12. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:14 pm

      Make you jealous?! No way, you are the expert chef here πŸ˜‰

  • 13. allieatfood  |  05/31/2011 at 1:33 pm

    I agree with you completely! My body can definitely tell when it is not getting enough nourishment. Isn’t that so weird that our bodies know that?! I start craving only things green and colorful and the thought of junk makes me sick. Glad you can get back to your routine πŸ™‚

  • 14. chrysta  |  05/31/2011 at 1:41 pm

    Im so glad to hear you had a good time and that you feel better. I think thats one of the best things about blogging…just all the amazing support and encouragement from others who are going through the same things. We are with ya hon!! Its good to give yourself a mental break from all the workouts and healthy eating. I think it does more for you then you think. Plus helps prevent burn out! So its all good!!

    • 15. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:15 pm

      I love all the great support I receive πŸ˜€

  • 16. Kaila @ healthyhelperblog!  |  05/31/2011 at 1:50 pm

    That sunset is gorgeous! I love taking pics like that! They always turn out so beautiful! And I love the idea of pretzels on ONO….sweet meets salty!

  • 17. cottercrunch  |  05/31/2011 at 2:01 pm

    i’M Glad you felt better after you got there. A few of your own snacks is a great idea. Love that sunset!

  • 18. Lisa @ Healthy Diaries  |  05/31/2011 at 2:04 pm

    It’s happened to me too many times where i’ve overindulged over the weekend and my body definitely shows the difference! I cannot understand how people eat like that everyday. After a few days of not eating right, I cannot go any longer and have to go back to eating healthy!

    P.S. You had a good time and that’s all that counts! After a few days of eating right and exercising you’ll feel as good as new!

    • 19. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:15 pm

      Feeling better already!

  • 20. kate  |  05/31/2011 at 2:28 pm

  • 21. katshealthcorner  |  05/31/2011 at 3:03 pm

    YUM!!! Your breakfast sounds AMAZING!!! πŸ˜€ I’m so glad that oyu enjoyed your trip!

  • 22. leashieloo  |  05/31/2011 at 3:03 pm

    I am loving the addition of the pretzels to your oats, genius!

  • 23. Kristen @ The Red Velvet Life  |  05/31/2011 at 3:04 pm

    So glad you were able to enjoy the weekend and then come back to a fridge full of familiar veggies and yummy things that nourish your body!! And the pics look beautiful…the food and the scenery! πŸ™‚

  • 24. Justeen  |  05/31/2011 at 3:38 pm

    Sounds like you had a fun weekend! But I totally understand that you are glad to be back to your normal routine πŸ™‚

  • 25. Mary @ Bites and Bliss  |  05/31/2011 at 3:46 pm

    I’m glad you had a fun weekend! That breakfast looks ammazzing, by the way. I haven’t tried choclate covered pretzels on oats before..and I have a feeling I’ve been seriously missing out.

    • 26. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:16 pm

      You must!

  • 27. Amanda @ Running with Spoons  |  05/31/2011 at 3:46 pm

    Welcome back, girlie! I know what you mean about being happy to be back to “normal” food. I used to live off junk food and now I have no idea how I managed it… if I don’t get my fruits and veggies in, I just start feeling tired and grumpy.

    • 28. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:16 pm

      I get grumpy too and super bloated 😦

  • 29. movesnmunchies  |  05/31/2011 at 4:06 pm

    did ujust put yogurt pretzels on ur oats?! I LOVE U EVEN MORE! so darn creative!

    • 30. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:16 pm

      Haha glad you like!

  • 31. Parita @ myinnershakti  |  05/31/2011 at 4:14 pm

    Glad you had a fun time!! I love your attitude about just giving your body what it needs and picking right back up with healthy eating and exercise…inspiration at its best!

    • 32. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:16 pm

      Aww you’re so sweet Parita

  • 33. Shanna, like Banana  |  05/31/2011 at 4:33 pm

    I’m just wrapping up in my vacay and my healthy eating has gone out the window just a little, but I know I’ll be back on track in no time. The important thing is I’ve had FUN!

  • 34. Allison @ PickyEatingRD  |  05/31/2011 at 4:35 pm

    Glad you had a good time, though it is pretty hard to have a bad time in the keys!!!! I was traveling last week and I know all too well what it feels like not to have your OWN refrigerator by your side.

    • 35. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:17 pm

      It sucks lol

  • 36. Serena  |  05/31/2011 at 4:57 pm

    I’m happy you had a great time and you’re giving your body the time it needs to refuel. Sometimes when you don’t have control over the food it gives you anxiety, but what can you do other than enjoy it and wait until you get home πŸ™‚

  • 37. Katie  |  05/31/2011 at 6:12 pm

    love the sneak shot of the luna!

    What a beautiful sunset! Amazing!

    Im glad you had a great weekend! i was happy to be back home too, and back to my routine!

    xoxo ❀

    • 38. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:17 pm

      Nothing like home πŸ˜€

  • 39. Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles  |  05/31/2011 at 6:29 pm

    Glad you had a great weekend. My husband and I didn’t have any major plans. We did randomly decide to run a 5k yesterday, so that was fun.

    By the way, I love that you put yogurt pretzels on your oats. Fantastic idea! πŸ™‚

    • 40. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:17 pm

      Congrats on the 5k love! πŸ˜€

  • 41. pumpedforpumpkin  |  05/31/2011 at 7:03 pm

    so glad you enjoyed yourself πŸ™‚ I always think that too about people! I’m like I couldn’t eat like this everyday I miss my veggies!
    My memorial day weekend was very laid back and relaxing with family and friends!

  • 42. sarah  |  05/31/2011 at 7:21 pm

    Yoghurt coated pretzels- hubba hubba!

  • 43. Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food  |  05/31/2011 at 7:29 pm

    I am so glad that you had such a good weekend. Although we didn’t do anything crazy this weekend I definitely know the feeling of wanting to get back on track with healthy habits. I’m sure that you will feel back to your usual self in no time.

    That oatmeal looks AMAZING! πŸ™‚

    • 44. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:18 pm

      Me either, I loved it

  • 47. Tara  |  05/31/2011 at 9:37 pm

    incognito pictures = story of my life. Especially when I’m out and about! I’m glad you had fun, I wish I got to go snorkeling over my memorial day weekend! I went on a picnic, which was lovely.

    I completely forgot about yogurt covered pretzels! I need to buy some and add it to my breakfast.

    • 48. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:18 pm

      Lol it was a quick snapshot ;D

  • 49. Laury@TheFitnessDish  |  05/31/2011 at 10:18 pm

    Aww glad you ended up having a great weekend!!!! Ypgurt covered pretzels on the oats…looks scrumpt!

  • 50. char  |  05/31/2011 at 11:34 pm

    Breakfast looks SO good…kinda wishing I didn’t see it though, as I’m lying in bed (STARVING) thinking about my overnight oats I have waiting for me in the morning! What a beautiful sunset!!

    • 51. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:19 pm

      Aww hope you enjoyed your oats πŸ˜€

  • 52. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)  |  06/01/2011 at 12:37 am

    That sunset is beautiful! Now that I eat pretty healthy, I’m always surprised by how people eat on a day-to-day basis- all the crap that they eat. It doesn’t seem to bother them- I guess our bodies adjust!

  • 53. kbwood  |  06/01/2011 at 12:43 am

    so glad you had such a great weekend love! LOVE those pretzels on top- yumm!

  • 54. Sara @ Nourish and Flourish  |  06/01/2011 at 1:30 am

    Luna bars are lifesavers, aren’t they?! But it’s definitely easy to OD, especially when they’re your main source of protein…Glad you’re back home enjoying the foods you love!

    Those oats look truly incredible. I love yogurt pretzels!

  • 55. Ellie@fitforthesoul  |  06/01/2011 at 2:54 am

    yayy so in the end all was pretty well! πŸ˜€ for some reason, I think that overnight oats are so awesome especially for mornings after not feeling good or eating a lot of heavy stuff.

    • 56. Jenny  |  06/01/2011 at 5:19 pm

      I love my overnight oats, felt so much better πŸ˜€

  • 57. Anna  |  06/01/2011 at 5:14 am
