Fruit is for being healthy…

Chocolate is for dessert. That's how it should be. I don't like fruit for dessert. I like fruit for a treat - they are 2 different things. Today we celebrated the April birthdays at work and had make-your- own-Strawberry Shortcakes. Ehh. I feel like angel food cake is a waste of space. Actually, all it is is space. It' just sugar and air. I like substance to my cake. I made a … [Read more...]

Today I love … not windy days

My run this morning was so windy it felt like I was running in place. That is obviously very frustrating. It was a killer. So, I modified my route so that I was running with the wind on my back on the way back. Haha, I win this round wind! Breakfast was oatmeal soaked in 2/3cup almond milk and South Beach granola on top. The South Beach granola comes in pre-portioned packages. … [Read more...]

Last night add on …

Add a Vitatop, a glass of milk and a handful of graham crackers to last night after dinner. Night time eating is my biggest problem. I think the accountability of this blog will help. I need to stop night time eating all together. This will definitely help with my weight loss goals. … [Read more...]

Farmer's Market

A friend/co-worker and I went to the farmer's market during lunch. I got a basket of cherries, which I proceeded to eat immediately. "God made dirt so, dirt don't hurt." Yes, I ate the whole container. Yes, I have a problem when it comes to watermelon and cherries. I estimate I spend 30 to 40 dollars a week on cherries alone during cherry season. They are the reason I live and … [Read more...]

Today I love … my knock off brand conditioner

Because my hair was a rat's nest after my run this morning. I was so windy! The crazy wind managed to completely tangle my pony-tail into a ball of knots. I hate that. My trick to fix this is to put a ton of conditioner in my hair and comb it out in the shower. It is so much easier than trying to comb it out after you get out. Trust.Today started with oatmeal. I soaked it … [Read more...]

Don't call it Supper

I had a handful of yogurt covered pretzels and a couple of raisins while making dinner. They come from the bulk bin and are horrible for you. The nutrition information says they are 200 calories for 1/4 cup. I don't think that is right because the mix is mostly yogurt pretzels. You can only fit about 5 pretzels in a 1/4 a cup how is that 200? Dinner was a sweet potato, veggie … [Read more...]

Snack it up

I as hungry soon after lunch so I had an apple and a half a teaspoon of PB. Doesn't the apple look tiny in my massive, nail polish chipped hands? Nice. A little while later I had a Balance Bar and 2 melted to the canister pieces of dark chocolate. Then, because I am a female, I had 2 Hersey's kisses even though I can take or leave milk chocolate. Boo. The good … [Read more...]

Steak Dinn-ahh!!!

Dinner last was great. It was sooooo hot in SoCal. No, really hot. We grilled pizzas. Ben had a BBQ chicken and I made a half BBQ chicken, half soy cheese. I also made a salad with a TJ's dressing and mixed in some TJ's trail mix. I forget with trail mix it was, it had almond slivers, raspberries, cranberries and I think blueberries? What matters is that it was good. We didn't … [Read more...]

Today I love … my new picture taker thingy

I got a new camera! Yah for me. I am excited because this is my first camera since 3rd grade when I had a neon orange big ol' rectangle camera. Nice. It's small and cute and plum color. I love it. The main reason I got a camera is for this blog. I am back in business people. Who's coming with me...This is my first picture! It' s me grilling pizzas on the balcony. … [Read more...]

Today I love … Peanut Butter

Yeah, I love that everyday. I am the world's worst blogger, but I wanted to explain myself. I was using the BF's camera to take pics of everything and I gave it back because I didn't want to mess it up. I am on a mission to get a digi of my own and I will continue to blog it up! Woo woo. … [Read more...]
