Fabulous Friday

Alright y'all this week was crazy! J and I have officially started our 'get fit' New Year's Resolutions and it has been going really well! I also very spur-of-the-moment/ a lot of detailed planning, planned a quick trip and, I started school again! 

1. So, yes John and I took a 'pledge' of sorts to start eating better and hold each other accountable for working out and eating right. We chose to do 5 days on and 2 cheat days (the weekend) that is what works best for us. 
Our first healthy dinner was this Grilled Rosemary Orange Chicken Salad that I found here. We made a few modifications but all it all, it was great. We also did Grilled Quinoa and Veggies, White Bean Pumpkin Chili, and Honey and Soy Pork Chops! I honestly think that the hardest part of all of this is just making myself drink enough water!

2. So... I know you will say I have been living under a rock but, I have never watched the Bachelor. I could never get into it and I just didn't like it before. However, the other night, it was on and I got sucked in so, I stopped the episode from Monday night and watched the Season Premiere from last week...
...can we talk about crazy??

3. Also, yes, I am back in school! The point of me taking this year off from school was so that I could travel and go back to school so, I am in 6 classes (18 credits) and I am planning various trips around that. I kind of felt like I was sinking into a rut with the same day-to-day activities so with the immense help and support of my lovely boyfriend and family, this is what we came up with. I am really excited for this new path in my life. 

4. Speaking of trips, I am going to Disneyland! Like the California Disney! John's cousin, Jeff is coming home from a duty in Japan for the Air Force. He is flying through LA on his way back here so, we decided to make a trip out of it! I am so excited!  
I'll be jet setting bright and early Monday morning!

  3. I've honestly never watch the Bachelor either. I once attempted, but since it's not too "kid" friendly, I had to keep turning it off every five seconds when the kids kept coming into the room. So I just forgot about it and my days are just spent watching Barney a zillion times over and over.
    And thanks so much for being our co-host this week with That Friday Blog Hop! I really love how cute your blog is and so glad you stopped by the join in and be a part of it

  4. I never really got into the Bachelor either. I've seen episodes here and there, but I have so many other shows I'd rather watch instead! Have so much fun at Disneyland!!

  5. I've never watched the Bachelor, but I can see how it would be easy to get sucked in! Way to go on eating healthy! I'm trying to do the same!

  6. You picked a good season to start the bachelor - she is CRAY!! Happy Friday! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  7. Eating cleaner during the week, and cheating on the weekends is the perfect balance. That way you don't feel deprived or like you can't eat anything you want/fun.

    Happy Friday :)

  8. even though it's healthy that salad looks delish!

  9. I need to start clean eating. The salad looks so good! I bet you are excited for the Disneyland trip! Thanks so much for linking up to High Five For Friday!
