So far so.. far

So, I have some time today and I will post breakfast early -even though I didn't take a picture. It was some TJs morning light and soymilk. I also had a yogurt and some pumpkin pudding - I got that recipe from Kath's site. Yeah, I didn't like it. I don't know why because I love pumpkin and all things pumpkin related. Maybe I will give it another try. I used to eat pumpkin all … [Read more...]

Today I love … Boobs

I am a bad blogger. I was out of town for a couple of days. We went to Yosemite!!! It was totally last minute and crazy and I loved it. We do so many road trips/weekend trips I am going to start a separate site to talk about all that stuff. I have a ton of tips on how to travel cheap and healthy - not that I always eat healthy on trips! I am really good about taking pics of … [Read more...]

Crazy California drivers...B: 165 calsI had a apple at work - it had been stabbed by something in my purse, and a big handful of Flax plus. S: approx. 145 cals … [Read more...]


I don't have pictures for Breakie or lunch. Breakfast was 1/3 oat bran with brown sugar and Greek yogurt. Lunch was leftover chicken soup from last night. I had a mango for snack. Note the very efficient way I cut it. I had a couple of apple crisps ( I will post about these later) on the way to my mom's. Dinner was more chicken soup - this time from a can and a egg salad … [Read more...]


Sunday I was still feeling sick. I slept in then, went for short run/walk. Breakfast and lunch were combined by the time I was back and showered. I got an enlightened Jamba Juice with granola topping. I always get the original size, but since I got the granola topping they put it in a big cup. So much smoothie granola goodness - this is my heaven. I also got a hummus sandwich … [Read more...]

Ski Day

I woke up Saturday not feeling too well. Actually, I woke up with a killer sore throat and feeling pretty weak and lethargic. So, I went for a walk/run and then we went skiing in Big Bear. Yes, this is what I do when I am sick. I am crazy folks - get used to it.I had a fruit salad with Greek yogurt topped with Flax Plus cereal on the way up. I also had a couple of bites of … [Read more...]

Today I love … Green eggs and ham

Actually, I loved green eggs and ham on Thursday. I went to my mom's school (she is a 3rd grade teacher) and read Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham to her class and to Matt's class. Matt is my little brother, he is in 1st grade. They were having a celebration in honor of Dr.Seuss' birthday and had guest readers come in and read his books. It was a lot of fun and I made green eggs … [Read more...]

Food Find

Food Find - Healthy Choice Tomato Basil and Mozzarella PaniniI actually like frozen meals so, I was pretty excited to try this panini. I have tried the Lean Cuisine Paninis in the past and really enjoyed them. I was disappointed with this frozen food find. The box describes it as : no fat & reduced fat mozzarella and provolone cheeses, diced tomatoes, roasted peppers & … [Read more...]

Food Favs

Food Fav - Organic Morning LiteThis is a Trader Joes Cereal that has some similarities to Kashi Go Lean. It has the same fiber twigs (but these are thinner), puffed corn and rice and those tiny square pieces that I always assumed were part of the soy grits. All of this cereal is coated in a sweet honey-like glaze making it much sweeter than KGL. The individual cereal pieces are … [Read more...]

Today I love … Peak Bars

I've decided that posting everything I eat after every meal is kinda obsessive and I need to get away from that kind of behavior. So, I will post what I ate each day at the end of the day or the next morning. I am trying to focus on intuitive eating. I want to really listen to my body and give it what it needs. I do believe our bodies tell us when they are hungry and what they … [Read more...]

Food Finds

I tried TJ"s Chocolate European Style yogurt today. It was pretty good. The consistency is thick and custardy, which is different from most name brand light yogurts that are very watery. I wanted to savor the custard-ness so I didn't stir it. When I got to the bottom of the container I found out there is chocolate on the bottom that can be stirred up to make it even more rich. … [Read more...]

Today I love … Chapstick

W/O: 60min. I need to start a training plan next week since I want to do a full this year. I have one picked out, but don't like to talk about these things because I'm superstitious. Isn't funny that I don't like to talk about certain things going on in my life, but I started a blog? Too bad.B: I am still on an oatbran kick. It's going on a about 9 months now. I know that as … [Read more...]

Travels – San Diego

This weekend we went to San Diego for the day. The San Diego Natural History Museum has a exhibit on Pompeii. I didn't know much about the volcano (Mt. Vesuvius) or what happened in general, but am super interested in it. It was a pretty good exhibit that starts with a movie. It's actually an excerpt of a documentary about Mt. Vesuvius and the surrounding areas. It gives you a … [Read more...]
