Slow and steady wins the race

I'm approaching weight loss like I approach running: "Slow and steady wins the race." Wait,  I don't really believe that , but I do believe: "Slow and steady gets you to the finish line" I'm down half a pound this Friday (from last week). This is especially surprising after last weekend's eating, drinking and "festivities"!  I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing and … [Read more...]

30 DAYS

There are only 30 days until my wedding! I have so so much to do it's crazy. I was MIA after lunch yesterday because I had wedding tasks after work. I also have a lot of stuff to do everyday for the rest of the week. Then, Ben is leaving for NJ next Friday and I'm meeting him there the following  Monday. So, I need to accomplish a lot before then! Wedding Dress: I did get to … [Read more...]

Don't want to eat random parts of a cow?

Then, soy chorizo is for you! Lunch was great-  Soy chorize with egg white  on a flatout wrap. If you guys like regular chorizo, you have to try this. It's so good! With cherries and cucs on the side. Love it. Chorizo is so tasty! And I'm so glad there's a vegetarian alternative to the original. This one is still pretty high in fat, but every now and then a Mexican girl has … [Read more...]

Raw Chocolate Oat Cookies

I actually got this recipe from a blogger about a year ago. She has since retired from blogging :( so I can't give her a shout out. Actually, I also found it while googling, so I think it's pretty well known already! These "cookies" are amazing - and amazingly easy!!! You only need 4 ingredients. Then, mix, form and eat! Gluten Free Raw Cookies Recipe Ingredients: oats, … [Read more...]

Raw Wed. Continues

I haven't had the easiest time with the Raw Wednesday Challenge. I think eating raw was meant to stop when humans figured out how to make  fire 10,000 years ago. Sorry, it's true. Ha. But I do have an amazing "No Bake" Recipe for you in the next post! W/O: 5 miles. I felt a little tired today. When I got back I tried to do some yoga, but only got through 15 minutes. My legs … [Read more...]

Fries for dessert

Ben showed up on my doorstep last night by surprise to take me out for dessert. But, it turns out he hadn't even eaten dinner yet (it was 9pm) so we went to a local hamburger place to get him some grub. I didn't order anything, but did eat some of his fries...then felt super full. Boo. But, it is kinda sweet that he drove an hour just to see me :) My dinner was another random … [Read more...]

Read Eat Repeat

Is anyone else curious as to how long I'm going to try and think up new ways to use "Blank, Eat, Repeat"? Ha! I am super behind on reading blogs after my weekend get away!!! So, I am trying to quickly get updated on blogland, but I don't really have time to comment much. So, I am Reading (instead of running, get it?)! Lunch was another HUGE salad - lettuce, tomatoes, shredded … [Read more...]

Boo.

It's back to my normal little life now... This post is not going to be half as exciting as my last one. W/O: I did 6 miles of happiness today :) Breakfast was a smoothie with a PB&PB english muffin (the 1/2 naner is left over from the smoothie)             I was super tired from my sleepless weekend, so I didn't post my daily eats yesterday. They were pretty … [Read more...]

Bachelorette Party

I have been MIA because I was in Las Vegas for my Bachelorette Party!!! Now, I try to keep sacred the Vegas code: "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" So, I won't say too much, except I had the Best.Time.Ever. Love it! My friends went out of their way to get all these cute party favors and games and stuff for me to wear! Plus they had very fun events planned. I cannot tell … [Read more...]

It's building

My excitement for this weekend is totally building! I am taking tomorrow off, so this is my "Friday" and this morning I got this text message from my friend - "Drink extra water today so you're ready for the booze". Noted: I don't know what she has planned, but it sounds like it will involve a lot of vodka. I don't normally drink that much, so wish me luck! Run: I did 5.7 … [Read more...]

Simple, but perfect

I think my favorite dinner is salmon, a sweet potato and salad (or brussel sprouts!). Since I'm trying to figure out what I love I thought I'd test this theory- salmon it was! I grilled it on the George Foreman with teryaki sauce, threw the sweet potato in the microwave and threw together a salad. This is the easiest gourmet dinner ever! Love it. Ben and I shared this … [Read more...]

Flowers and stress

My mom bought star gazers for the centerpieces at my Bridal Shower this weekend. We gave most of them away, but kept one. They took a couple of days, but now most of them are open and beautiful.   The flowers make me happy and distract me from all the stress going on in my life. I may be one step away from a nervous breakdown. I don't want to talk about it right now, just … [Read more...]

One step at a time

I think I need to slow down and take things one step at a time. I ended up getting hungry around 10pm last night and eating a lot of random things...trail mix, my brother's leftover burrito, something else I can't remember. I felt like crap physically and emotionally about it and this morning I woke up and realized I need to tackle one problem at a time. I am overwhelmed at … [Read more...]

Driving Dinner

I made the biggest mistake of opening in a bag of chips on the way home from TJ's today. I have a l-o-n-g commute, so I basically have an hour (or more!) to mindlessly snack. I ate 3/4 of it by the time I got home. I knew I should stop eating it, but I tried to pace myself. I am an idiot. This is kinda out of character for me to eat chips. I am a sweets girl all the way. … [Read more...]

Normal lunch

Today I packed what I think is a "Normal Lunch". I had a sandwich with a slice of turkey, Food Should Taste Good chips and veggies on the side. I wasn't going to pack the chips, but I really like them and according the Intuitive Eating, I should give myself complete permission to eat what I want. Sammie! I have really been struggling with eating so much  meat lately. I … [Read more...]

Hot Pizza

Every lunch break I have wedding errands to complete. Today I went looking for wedding bands. I actually am not sure I even want one since I just plan on wearing my engagement ring as a wedding ring. But, I was thinking I may need one for times when I shouldn't be wearing this ring, like traveling and stuff. Hmmm. I can't decide! Lunch - I made myself eat one of the frozen … [Read more...]
