I spent most of the day at home relaxing and right before my lunch I went for my run! I don’t think I could function if I didn’t get a workout in. I’m glad it’s the weekend so I have time to do the things I enjoy.
Cody had a rough morning, he helped his friend move some car parts and with his back problems already, he was defiantly sore afterwards.
While Cody took his nap, I cleaned myself up and decided to grab some Starbucks, I always love the Skinny Mocha Frappuccino! I also stopped at Walmart on my way home to pick up some bananas and I found the cutest cup! Now I can transport my smoothies in style! haha!
I had homework to catch up on, so I wanted to make a quick healthy dinner. We’ve been eating out a lot lately and it was nice to spend some time in the kitchen cooking. I chose to make Cheesy Pesto Pasta! My last attempt at this recipe didn’t turn out as well as I hoped. It was super dry although it had a good flavor, I thought of a better way to make it and it turned out amazing!

2 Tbsp of Pesto (you can use store bought or make your own)
2 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
1 Tsp Italian Seasoning
2 Tsp Garlic Powder

garlic and 1 cup of cheese into a large bowl
