I am so happy- glad it's Friday and definitely feeling better with today's "be here, be now" mindset.

I saw my new apartment and can now say that my excitement is overpowering any anxiety I had. The place is really cool- it has basic furniture (bed, sofa, etc) but is pretty much a big empty space so if any of you creative people have some ideas for jazzing it up and making it "homely", send them my way! I'm going to check out IKEA this weekend for throws and rugs. I can't wait until Monday!

I have been playing around more with my camera and have a couple of food pictures- I can't for the life of me figure out how to make an Amy's burrito look pretty. So tips on that would also be appreciated :)

Today's "plan not to plan" snack- an Atkins caramel cookie dough protein bar. Liked it, but definitely prefer cookie dough balance bars! I don't even know where this came from, but was in my stash so must have been bought at some point...

Dinner tonight includes this Amy's teriyaki bowl. It's only fairly recently that we have been able to get more than just a couple Amy's meals in the UK and I am really excited to keep finding more. This was really good and would recommend it, but seriously- 4 pieces of tofu? This girl needs more protein than that!

And of course, need to get my vitamins. Hollah!...

So what does everyone else have planned for the weekend?

Awesome that Amy's is becoming more mainstream! Usually I can only find it at Whole Foods in London!

About the Fitness magazine: Borders carries tons of US magazines including Fitnes, Self, and all the glamour ones. They cost more than they do in the US but I think they're worth it! :)

You should make a vision board for your new apartment. And get a nice frame for it too.
Moving to a new place is always so exciting. It's great to have a blank canvas to make your own!
Keep up the great work!!!

Ahh Ikea! I love that place. You should check out the Ikea Hacker website before you go - the things people do with their 'basic' furniture are amazing.

I have some homework I really should do this weekend...sigh. Can't wait to hear about your buys for the new apartment!
