After a week of non-stop rain (I don’t remember the last time that happened here in SoCal), the sun is out and….
It’s a beautiful morning
I know a lot of people are now on holiday vacation but I am still working. Traffic is very light so coming to work takes half the time, yay :)
After my treadmill HIIT workout this morning, I took advantage of the warm weather coming back and made myself a green monster protein shake.
- 1 C almond milk, ice & water
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 2 handful of fresh spinach
- 1 whole frozen banana
and ate a small oatmeal raisin bar to complete my breakfast.
I arrived at work with gifts and treats on my desk. I love the holidays :)
Our office kitchen is also filled with holiday treats sent by vendors.
I have a taste here and there, but I think my taste buds are changing because these are definitely too sweet for me now.
Speaking of treats, my secret blogger from our holiday baking exchange spoiled me. I received the goodies a few weeks ago and they are all gone now. Sad day.
Mandi from Itzy’s Kitchen sent me this beautiful loaf.
Plenty of healthy cookies (wholesome ingredients, no white sugar & vegan)
My family and I enjoyed these treats so much that I actually baked my own batches after to satisfy their cravings.
Thank you again Mandi. You definitely know how to spoil a girl with bake goods. I love giving treats away for Christmas, so now I know what it feels like to get goodies in the mail. It’s a lovely feeling.
Christmas at Disneyland
Here are more pictures from our Disney outings. This is from “It’s A Small World” ride. The park closes the ride for a few weeks to decorate it for the holidays.
One of my favorites, Christmas in Paradise and hula girls.
