Veggie Spring Rolls and Bob Harper’s DVDs

by Nicole on August 24, 2010

Help! I need help prying myself off the couch today on this gloomy day. I’m supposed to go for a run today, which has to be outside since I put my gym membership on hold. If you have any extra motivating tips or comments please feel free to leave them below!! I’m sorta enjoying the cool weather the past few days, but I do want the sun to come back. We’re going to Philly this weekend for our anniversary, so I’d like some warm weather please!

Yesterday I went to Target.I haven’t been there in awhile and I knew that would mean trouble. I love stocking up on cleaning and beauty products while I’m there since they are usually at a great price. I even picked up some Dove body spray because Averie has recommended it. I figured it can go in my gym bag to make me smell nicer! :) I also picked up some shampoo, conditioner, more Aveeno body wash, Jergen’s lotion  (I’m kind of obsessed with lotion, I HATE dry skin) and some back to school stuff. I always like to get new fun pens, pencils and post-its to start off the new school year. Anyway, $223 dollars later my cart was filled and I was happy. Then it was off to Trader Joe’s for some staples. With the egg recall, I’m extra proud of my choice of buying organic eggs. Now onto some food…

So lunch time…what was for lunch? I have been playing around with these spring roll wrappers, trying to figure out how to use them. There are no directions because everything is in another language, so first I tried microwaving them, but yesterday I finally figured it out. You just have to wet them on both sides, give it a second and it will get flimsy.

All chopped up

Fill and wrap 'em

Perfect for lunch at home or to go! Remember to leave me some motivating comments to get me to run!

Also,  2 more things – I just bought this workout DVD series, the Inside Out Method from Bob Harper. How good does this look? I need some new workouts to motivate me during the school year.

and the 2nd…I just added a new sidebar widget to my mom’s Allstate Insurance page. If you live in NY, I’m positive she could help you with your insurance needs. She’s super reliable, honest and hardworking. Give her office a call at 516-561-7777!

Get your butt off the couch and those running shoes on!!!

Did that help? Probably not since I’m on the couch and lacking motivation for anything today too. LOL

Ahhh, I love Target! I’m a big fan of those Dove body sprays too– really great for after the gym! They’re really refreshing in hot weather!

Motivational thought…you know you will feel much better after you’re finished, and it wont take as long as you think! Then you can veg out some more ;-)

The veggie wraps are winning my heart right now!!

Bob has a new DVD? Let us know how you like it!!! Maybe he can motivate you today!

Ummm, YUMMM I love spring rolls and could really use some of those right about now!

Girl, I hear ya, sometimes it is hard to get those shoes on to get out for a run or hit the gym. Mind over matter ;)

You are too cute!

Minus the shrimp because of my allergy, and these look AMAZING. And girl I am DANGEROUS at Target lol. Now I have to head over there though to check out the body spray..

I LOVE spring rolls and making them at home is the best. They are always over priced at restaurants. I really like to dip them in peanut sauce.

I just found your blog and I’m glad I did. I just tried spring rollls recently and was surprised at how easy they were to make! Yours look yummy!

Wow! The Bob Harper video is very motivating! I love having exercise DVDs to change things up.
