Almond Joy!

Posted by Sarah Robertson on Thursday, August 12, 2010. Filed under: , , , , ,

Not like the candy bar! I'm talking about the giant bag of almonds that I scored + my new job = Almond Joy.


There are a lot of people who own almond orchards where we live so we get a lot of free almonds at the end of summer. Its one of the only perks about living in the country.

As you can see the bag is HUGE so I immediatly went to work trying to make some almond creations.

Almond Butter


Almond Milk


Almond Butter Cookies (these are dangerous)


...and a bunch of other almondy goodness snacks, recipes to come!!

I've been seriously neglecting my blog mainly because I just got a job at a gym and have been spending most of my time trying to get new clients and doing program designs for the ones I already have. That and I had a pretty crazy birthday weekend. I'm going to try to post more though, at least every other day!

So far I LOVE my new job! All of my coworkers and members of the gym are really friendly, I get to make my own schedule, the managers don't put too much pressure on you unlike other gyms, and best of all I get to put Bella in the kid's center when Derek can't watch her! I have yet to do this since I usually schedule my appoitments around Derek's work schedule but its really nice to have the option.

I really love training people, its great to see the looks on someone's face at the end of a workout because you know they feel like they accomplished something and instantly feel good about themselves. I'm glad I found a career that allows me to make a diffence in people's lives. When I walk into the gym I'm not going there just to make money like other jobs I've had, I'm going there to make people feel good about themselves and make important changes for their health. I feel very lucky to have a job that I actually look forward to each morning because I know that is very rare.

By the way I'm now offering virtual training with really great rates just because I love putting together programs for people and helping out whoever I can. Click the link at the top of the page for more info, seriously the rates are super cheap! I'm also going to be offering nutrition consulting in the future so look out for that.
