Friday Favourites is quickly becoming one of my favourite types of posts to write, not only because of the fun alliteration (<– HA! dork), but because it’s a great chance to reflect on some of the highlights of my week. Check out this week’s fitness and foodie highlights!
Since I’ve been mostly teaching classes for the past couple years, it’s been a while since I’ve consistently been a participant in a class. It’s been a nice change to have someone else decide what routine is gonna’ kick my butt, and I’ve been picking up some new routines and ideas at the same time, too! I went to my 3rd Body Cycle class this morning at 8:30, and left sweaty and rejuvenated!
No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars
I know I’ve said about a zillion times that the recipe for these bars is coming soon, and I promise it is! Look for it either tomorrow or Sunday 🙂
I’ve made these bars 3 times in the past week, and each time the entire batch only lasted me 24 hours. I might start making them for myself in single servings so that I stop consuming them for every. single. meal.
Cheesy Oldie but Goodie Workout Songs
Since I rarely delete anything on my iTunes, I have songs from waaaaay back when in the day when I got my first iPod. I was in grade 6, and I loaded my hot pink iPod mini with Green Day, Hilary Duff, Avril Lavigne, Backstreet Boys and ‘N sync. To this day, I still have 95% of those original songs, and recently they’ve been making a big comeback on my workout playlists! Some of the more embarrassing faves include:
- Everybody by The Backstreet Boys (also, I didn’t know until I looked up this link on Youtube how freaky the music video is! Not what I was expecting…)
- Larger Than Life by The Backstreet Boys (wait, this video’s freaky too. Must’ve been a 90’s boy band theme)
- Stacy’s Mom by Fountains of Wayne (this video had me LOL’ing because the boy that’s in love with Stacy’s mom is approximately 12 years old, maybe even 10).
- In Too Deep by Sum 41
Clearly, I was pretty into boy bands.
Wawa’s French Vanilla Coffee
To all you gourmet coffee lovers out there- don’t hate! I’m a big fan of flavoured coffee, and when paired with their French Vanilla Non-Dairy creamer, this coffee tastes (almost) like a decadent dessert! Don’t get me wrong, I love my Americano’s, but until Starbucks offers a student discount for drinks, I’m pretty happy with my $1.50 fake latte.
Later on today I’m heading to NYC to visit friends for the weekend! Fun plans include visiting the Chobani store (!!!), taking a boxing class, and just catching up with friends.
Also- recipe posts that are coming up:
- No-bake chocolate peanut butter protein bars
- French toast/ PB&J French toast
