Summer snack!

on June 25, 2012

Morning!  I hope that you had a great weekend!  I was so glad to be in church yesterday.  God’s word never fails and it certainly pierced my heart yesterday.  I wasn’t actually going to be there, but I am so glad that I was.  I had been thinking of a certain passage in the bible all weekend and saying to myself, “I just want to worship in church and not care about what others are thinking or what their opinion is of me. “In spirit and in truth.”   And you know what??   The verse was part of the sermon!

I have had some really low thoughts of myself lately.  Some, I think, may have something to do with what is going on in my body, but some are just thoughts of not being good enough.  I already conclude that someone is going to reject me before I meet them.  Crazy I know, but the thought is there.  The last couple of years have been tough for me spiritually and having these thoughts only magnified that.

I am done however, worrying about what people think of me.  What people think of me has no baring on what God thinks of me.  He doesn’t consult someone elses opinion of me before He makes His decision.


John 4:24 “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

I got to set with some special people this morning…..Hey Bro Joe and Mrs. Sherry!!  Love you guys!


I was so excited to try this new recipe that I found on Courtney’s blog, Sweet Tooth Sweet Life.  She used blood orange chobani greek yogurt, but I didn’t have any of that flavor, so I tried the Lemon.  🙂  She also used Orange Cremesicle granola, but all that I had on hand was Udi’s honey flavored.  Another great recipe for these little jewels can be found here:  The Lean Green Bean.


  • 2 Lemon flavored Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup of Udi’s gluten-free granola



Mix both ingredients and then put into a cupcake pan (I used a small one) and then freeze until they set!  They kind of tasted like a key lime pie!



I also had an amazing salad yesterday, for lunch.


  • lettuce
  • spinach
  • roasted turkey
  • strawberries
  • roasted almonds

I was going to add a hard-boiled egg, but completely forgot!




To be honest, it’s been really hard to get back into the swing of things with my workouts since my vacation.  I have strictly stuck to running or walking this past week due to my body acting a little weird.  I have had absolutely NO energy what so ever and getting thru a workout has been a little difficult.  I even tried to get thru an Insanity workout and it was a no go.  😦

Today I thought that I would try to do some strength training.  I put in Jillian Michael’s No More Trouble Zones!  I felt really good while doing the workout, but I was really shaky.  In fact, when it came to plank moves I could barely hold myself up!!  Crazy!!

I hope you have a great day!

    What a great idea, freezing yogurt! I’ll have to try with my coconut ‘gurt for sure.

  4. Those frozen yoghurt bites are so cute! And I think it’s really normal to find it hard to get back into exercise after a break…it will happen 🙂
