Habanero Heaven

Evening bloggies!

I hope you all are doin’ well!! Today I was totally cool and didn’t leave my couch. Oh yes…I know — such a busy bee. There wasn’t much for me to do today — so I just lounged, hung out with my adorable dog and my fat *yet, adorable when she decides to be* cat.

I woke up early because FedEx was picking up a package that my brother was sending out, and I was in charge of it…unforuntaely…they didn’t show up until …oh…5:30pm. haha Oh well, I guess it’s better than having missed them.

This morning, I made myself a nice cup ofย coffee and sliced up an apple and enjoyed it with a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter.

I also updated my About Mesection! Check it out if you would like. ๐Ÿ™‚

For lunch, I had my usual stovetop popcorn…it’s so comforting. I don’t know why — maybe it’s the smell of it…maybe it’s the satisfaction of a crunchy, salty snack. Or both. No matter the reason, it’s delicious! I spiced it up with a little garlic powder, onion powder, and some parsley flakes. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also made myself a little “spritzer” so to speak…with my Bolthouse Farms Green Goodness beverage and some sparkling water. It was quite deeeelish. And bubbly! Bubbly is always fun.

I rocked out to Gaga for a while *do we see a trend??* …I can’t do that in my apartment so at home I BLAST my music. And for dinner I had the largest sweet potato I’ve ever seen. Plus, some broccoli!! Yummy greens! Topped with some Mother’s Mountain Habanero Heaven Deadly Pepper Sauce. — perfecto.

I’m gonna utilize some on demand yoga videos and then probably hit the hay! Perhaps a spoonful or two of PB will be in my future. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a wonderful night everyone!


Bring on the naners!

Hello lovelies!

Today has been a very low-key day — but a healthier one. ๐Ÿ™‚ Not only was food more ..uhh..appealing, but my back has felt better, too! Wahooo! haha I mostly cleaned (rocking out to Gaga, of course), and relaxed.

I made a really exciting discovery in my house today!!

YOGA MAT! and a pretty one at that! This is especially exciting for me…because it means I won’t have to buy one. ๐Ÿ™‚ — It was my mom’s (a gift from a friend of hers that owns her own yoga studio)..and she said it was okay if I took it!! Happpy, happy Jil.

I felt like spicing up my morning routine this morning — and though, yarrr, I still had my normal coffee… I shook up my yogurt mess. I did my usual fat free plain greek yogurt and flax – but I added banana and a spoonful of Nutella! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yumm. Banana was especially important to me considering when I was researching about my back issues, I found out that a lack of potassium could be a factor in knots.ย  Bring on the naners!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this yogurt mess…but a part of me just wanted to take bananas and dip them in melted Nutella. ..naughty.

I got a bunch of my laundry done (even when I’m home, I let my laundry pile up like I have to pay by the load — habit..haha), and hung out with my bro. Lunch was a huge mess of popcornstovetop yarrr. Best ever. All it needs is a little sea salt. ๐Ÿ™‚ I shared with my bro — but it was a TONNN. haha My tummy was verrrry happy.

I enjoyed some epic Diet Raspberry Ginger Ale by Waist Watchers — it uses Splenda — but it’s yummy.

Dinner was an indulgence: a bean burrito with cheese and salsa (I ate half and then ate the bean filling from the 2nd half), brown rice with black beans, and lots of broccoli. It was delicious. It was nice to sit down for a meal with my family and just chat. It also started to snow a little bit, too. I guess it was just all conducive to a comfy cozy evening in.

The new season of Biggest Loser is premiering tonight! Are you watching?

Have a fabulous evening!
