hearts, hearts and more hearts

hearts, hearts and more hearts || Journey for JessiI have been both single and in relationships for Valentine’s day, so I speak from experience when I say that Valentine’s Day is a very weird holiday on both parts.  V-day has always just be eh for me.  I don’t hate it, I am not its number one fan.  In my opinion, it is just a holiday in which everyone gets all stressed out and–more often times than not–just straight up sad on the 14th.  Please people.  Calm down.  If you have a significant other, just relax.  Spend the day together.  Do not build these huge expectations of grandeur.  My best Valentine’s day with my boyfriend at the time was a night spend at home making dinner together and watching Scrubs.  If you are single, oh my gosh!  Enjoy it!  Once I embraced being single (and happy) this Valentine’s Day, I am more in favor of this day of love than I used to be.

blueberry banana egg “pancakes”

blueberry banana-egg "pancakes"--Journey for JessiWho doesn’t love pancakes?  I know I am a huge fan.  I have fond memories of my dad and I making pancakes together every weekend when I was little.  He taught me the secrets of flavoring a good pancake. My mom always got on to him about “not following the recipe,” but they always turned out magnificently.  I remember for every Father’s Day, Christmas, or Birthday that I always wanted to gift him something pancake related such as a new mix or spatula.

kick-start circuit series: rotation four

kick-start circuit series: rotation fourGood evening everyone!  I hope your Sunday has been nice and relaxing.  If today was your “rest” day, get ready to kick back into gear with my circuit series tomorrow because here is rotation four! 

Rotation four took about 12 minutes to complete and burnt about 60 calories (*time and calories burnt are based off of my body and level of exertion). And YES, I know I spelled “Bicycles” wrong, but the edit took too long to redo—my apologies. Continue reading
