Almost 2009!

I seriously can’t believe we have 1 more day left in 2008. CRAZY!

Amy posted this little questionnaire on her blog today and I thought it was fun so I’ll play along!

Biggest Overall Accomplishment of the year: Getting a great job for when I graduate. 

Biggest Overall Challenge of the year: Learning to balance food, fitness, and fun. Eating healthily and exercising without obsessing.

Best Food Discovery of the year: So many! Natural peanut butter, greek yogurt, flax, Amy’s frozen meals, Larabars, brussels sprouts, Ezekial cinnamon raisin english muffins, etc.

Favorite purchase of the year: Asics Gel Kayano running shoes and my black transformer yoga mat 

How old you turned in 2008: 21!

Greatest Fitness Achievement: Running 10 miles and finally accomplishing headstand in yoga without the wall.

Thing(s) to work on in 2009: Being more mindful with my eating and exercising and treating my body right=giving it the proper fuel, exercise, and rest that it needs. Also to make more of an effort to be social and enjoy time with my friends. 

Most Memorable Meal!?: Thanksgiving!

I love survey things like that!

Now on to the food:


I had a big, filling breakfast before work this morning because I knew that lunch would be on the later side. I made a big bowl of yogurt, apple, kashi go lean, and cinnamon. The cinnamon gave it a little extra something that was excellent!



After work I went to visit my grandparents for the afternoon. I picked up Panera for lunch to eat once I got there. Today I had the chicken tortilla soup which I hadn’t tried before. It was really good! Nice and spicy. Yum!



I made a yummy dinner tonight inspired by my bloggie-buds. I made the infamous Gliding Calm tofu along with Catherine’s Spinach Pie. Both were incredible! 


Now I’m off to hang out at a friend’s house. See ya later!

    Great survey! And great year. Gotta love the food blog world, it sure leads to SO many good food discoveries doesn’t it?!
    I’m kind of jealous of your headstand accomplishment. I have to try that one day! I’m kind of scared to do it without the wall haha.

    Best of luck with the 2009 list. I have no doubt you’ll do it all no problem 🙂
