Hey hey! How’s the week shaping up on your end? Things are going well here. Since the internship has ended, I’m just enjoying some down time before things really start to pick up again with school.
With that, my nails have been in need of some serious TLC, so I set out to get my nails done with some free time I had yesterday afternoon. I’m not really sure how I feel about the accent nail thing quite yet. I figured I’d give it a go while it’s still summer… no harm no foul.
Plus, changing the plates when I lift does a number on my hands and nails , so I’ll need an update in no time.
I chose Essie Naughty Nautical for the main color, with Essie Mint Candy Apple for the accent nail.
Yesterday was an all-around low-key day. I took a day off from working out, had dinner, read some blogs, and relaxed at home with the family in the evening.
On the agenda for this morning is a BodyPump class, lunch, and having our kitchen countertops fixed.
Before I head out this morning, I want to pass along a quick protein-packed trick that is often a component of my breakfast: Greek Yogurt pudding. I make this by mixing 1 tablespoon of pudding mix with 6 ounces of Greek yogurt. Plain Chobani works best!
This combo is seriously thick and creamy, with a fluffy mousse-like texture. I like to mix up the pudding mix based on whatever flavor I have on hand—this morning I added butterscotch. Chocolate fudge pudding mix is probably my favorite, but cheesecake and white chocolate are also dee-lish.
It’s also extremely unphotogenic because it becomes quite difficult to stir; but, hey, mousse with 18 grams of protein? Sign me up!
After Googling around for a while, I’ve found that this is a relatively popular thing to make, but it’s great idea/reminder for those looking for some high-protein snack inspiration.
I’m planning to do a post on high protein snacks, and this little recipe absolutely tops my list!
So I hope your day is off to a great start! While we’re on the topic of manicures: Accent nail—yay or nay?
