Wanna know a great way to kick off a Friday?

Stop at a local bagel shop and snag a toasted bagel with homemade cream cheese.

A couple weeks ago I stopped in Ocala’s new Breadilicious bakery and fell in love with their unbelievable pastries. When I saw a sign for Bagelicious, a local bagel shop and deli, as I was driving the other day, I made a mental note to drop in sometime in the future.

Apparently local shops ending in “licious” are quite the thang in Ocala.

On the way home from the gym, I popped in an ordered a toasted honey nut bagel with honey walnut cream cheese. I’m not sure why the bagel is a purpleish color, but I’m just going to roll with it because it tasted fantastic.

Ordering a bagel this morning reminded me of high school lunch. When I was a senior in high school, my friends and I would go off-campus for lunch and often stopped at Great American Bagel where I would order a toasted bagel, with one half topped with vegetable cream cheese (my entrée) and the other half topped with pineapple walnut cream cheese (dessert).

That counts as a serving of vegetables and fruit, right? Winking smile


Today’s workout was great! I kicked it old school and did a circuit workout. I wasn’t feeling LiveFit strength training today so I created a little combination workout that looked like this:

This circuit was inspired by Annette’s Outside Your Comfort Zone workout and absolutely flew by thanks to the fast pace of the workout.

I’ll be back soon with a fun giveaway this afternoon. If you like pretty jewelry (specifically the necklace I gave my bridesmaids), I think you’re gonna love this one!

Question of the Morning

  • Did your high school have off-campus lunch? If so, where would you typically go?

My friends and I typically rotated going to each other’s houses for lunch, but when we went out, we’d typically go to Great American Bagel or Billy’s Hot Dogs. (Anyone else from Palatine, Illinois a fan of Billy’s? So freakin’ good. And I’m honestly shocked they have a website.)

    We had off campus lunch in High School and we would always go to carls jr. because it was down the street, I never ordered anything because I always brought food with me, it more to hang out somewhere other than school.

    We did not have off campus lunch. The high school I went to was brand new to a fairly new area and there wasn’t anywhere to go. Leaving meant at least a ten minute drive and we only had 30 minutes. The area is built up now, but the campus is still closed (as far as I know). I graduated 12 years ago.

    We didn’t have off campus lunch. I guess I can’t really complain though because we had “Chicken biscuit Thursdays” where clubs could sell chickfila chicken biscuits in the morning as a fundraiser. Those were the days.

    I’m from Palatine and I’ve never even heard of Billy’s! Hot Dog Richies is the hole-in-the-wall of Palatine that I went to for off-campus lunch! A favorite in my house!

    My friend and I just did the circuit workout after we did 4.5 miles on the elliptical. We modified it a little bit, and did each thing for one minute, with 20-30 seconds rest. I’m so beat right now, I can barely get off the couch! 🙂 Thanks for sharing it with us.
