Warmer Temperatures = Lots of Salads! WIAW

Another Wednesday is upon us…It’s quite the dreary morning here in Jersey and I’m hoping that this fog lifts and the sun will come out to play later this afternoon. If it’s a yucky day where you are, try out my Terrific Tuesday Workout! It’s 60 minutes and includes a 30 minute treadmill workout + a 30 minute body blast circuit. It’s a sweaty mess, but feels great, and your body will thank you later! On that note, I’m off to Mommy Boot Camp! Check out my delicious eats and see y’all on Friday!

Thanks Jenn for always hosting and have a wonderful Hump Day!

  1. I have been currently loving salads as well – need some new ones though – I get bored quick!

    • My favorite toppings this week have been cherry peppers for a nice spice kick and the sprouts. I like the extra crunch!

  3. I eat salad pretty much everyday for dinner in the summer. With salmon, chicken, or tuna. Nuts and goat cheese. Fruit and sprouts. Grilled vegetables and lemon. Options are endless!

    • Goat cheese is the best on salads in summer! I also like adding walnuts and cranberries to the goat cheese. Delicious! Thanks for stopping by!

    • I LOVE sweets and I treat myself at least twice a week. I used to not do this, but I realized that life is way too short to not eat and do the things you love. Plus, I work so hard and it’s the perfect amount to curb my cravings and also just enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. I am with ya…warm weather leaves me wanting nothing but big salads! They are so refreshing!

    March 22, 2012
    • Refreshing, easy, and endless possibilities! I love coming home and being able to whip a big old salad up in less than 20 minutes. Thanks for stopping by and have a awesome weekend, wherever that may be. 🙂

  7. I like that you eat dessert and admit to it, I struggle with finding balance in my life. I tend to think that I can never, ever have dessert or splurge at all and its honestly not a fun way to live all the time!

    • It’s important to treat yourself. Whether it is wine, dessert, a mani/pedi, you deserve it. I find that when I deny myself the things I love, it will always backfire on me at some point. Treating myself to sweets is a great reward for my hard work and it has helped me find great balance. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
