Quick and Easy

The theme of today is quick and easy. I had 5 minutes to make and eat breakfast so I threw cereal, chia seeds and almond butter on top of what remained in my pinapple cottage cheese container. I actually love this combination and plan of getting more pineapple cottage cheese asap!IMG 1313 400x266 Quick and Easy

Served with iced coffee. I actually made coffee last night so it would already be cold and ready for drinking this morning. Quick and easy!IMG 1315 400x266 Quick and Easy

Run: This morning I did a quick and easy 4 miler before school. I hope to get in some abs tonight after work as that’s one of my weekly goals.

I’m also quick and easy icon wink Quick and Easy Not in that way. My quick and easy beauty routine – face lotion and a headband. Who needs makeup or hair brushes? Not this girl. IMG 1320 266x400 Quick and Easy

Then, I rushed off to school where I took a test that was neither quick nor easy. And I have another one tomorrow. I think I’m growing an ulcer in my tummy. I hope this doesn’t affect my quick and easy bathroom breaks.

At lunch time I found myself on the way to work without a packed lunch. Not okay. Luckily I dug the Subway gift card I scored from the Healthy Living Summit out the depths of my purse and used it. Since it’s a gift card it doesn’t break the “No eating out in Sept” rule. Boo-ya. IMG 1321 400x266 Quick and Easy

I ordered a tuna foot-long on their new Omega-3 bread. This bread is completely covered in little grains and I loved every bite. I would definitely order this again. IMG 1324 400x266 Quick and Easy

I asked the sandwich artist to give me 3 scoops of tuna instead of the usual 4 spread over the foot-long to lighten it up a bit. I love tuna, but don’t love the calorie count. Rather than order something I don’t want, I order my favorite and make small tweaks icon smile Quick and Easy IMG 1322 400x266 Quick and Easy

On the side I had chips and carrots. I didn’t mean to eat the chips, but this is a new flavor and I ended up really liking it! IMG 1326 400x266 Quick and Easy

Now I have work until 6pm then homework time. Hopefully it will all be over quickly and easily so I can get back to blogging icon smile Quick and Easy

Quick and Easy Question: Chocolate or Vanilla?


  1. says

    I should try the quick and easy approach. It seems like I always complicate things.

    As much as I love chocolate in candy form, I actually prefer vanilla in most other applications. Vanilla milkshakes, vanilla pudding, vanilla ice cream, vanilla protein powder.

    I love that you said “instead of getting something I don’t want I get what I want and tweak it” because that’s what I do with things like guacamole. I LOVE IT! I know it’s “good” fat, but too much is too much good or bad. So I order the guac – then wrap half in a plastic container to take home, freeze and enjoy later. Then I go on about enjoying the smaller amount right when I wanted it. :)
