Major blogger fail today wlEmoticon sadsmile1 Sign My Cone I broke my memory card after taking pictures of my lunch, snack and fun times. Busted. Literally.

Now I need to get a new memory card tomorrow, but all the pics from today are lost. This is the second memory card I’ve broken this year too! This is why I can’t have nice things…

So today we have to play “pretend” with my recap.

Luckily, we don’t have to pretend it was a gorgeous day, because it totally was wlEmoticon smile4 Sign My Cone

Because of the great weather (and desire to avoid house cleaning at all costs), I headed to my mom’s to visit my little brother Matt…

and take Bailey and Roxy on a walk.

They love walks, almost as much as I do!

Before leaving for the visit I had an amazing salmon wrap. I shared the salmon with Vegas because he’s still looking pretty tragic from his fight. Hopefully, he won’t have a bald shoulder forever!IMG 0954 1024x683 400x266 Sign My Cone

On the way home from my mom’s I stopped at a local Mexican place for the best burritos around! I always stop here on the way home and bring Ben a burrito. They don’t really have anything very healthy so I usually skip it.

Today I decided to live my damn life and ordered a taco salad. IMG 8613 800x533 thumb Sign My Cone

Unfortunately this is probably the one thing on the menu that actually tastes better homemade or even made by Chipotle. At least the guac was plentiful, but I think I make better salads at home.

Someone asked if I had lost any weight since Lent started ( I gave up sweets). First off, that is not the reason I gave them up, and I’d be disappointed if that was the case because – No, I haven’t.

I think giving up sweets has made me think about them more (probably my binge history waking up because of this all or nothing mentality)! I have still been having dessert at night, but instead of a Vitatop I have a Bagel Thin with fancy PB or something. This ends up being more calories and is doing me a disservice. Now that I realize that I can reign it in a bit!

    I am always amazed that my mother–sucessfuly–gives up sweets for lent every year. I think she only survives by eating chocolate graham crackers. She always says, “it’s not a cookie–the serving says one cracker!!”

    bought salads are sometimes just a little too blah & i feel like i could have done better at home. if a salad has ingredients i don’t cook with or use, i’ll totally get it though.

    laziness FTW!

    Aw, I can’t believe people assume you would give up sweets for lent to loose weight. That is so anticlimactic!

    If I was trying to loose weight, I wouldn’t choose to do it out of a dishonor on a religious occasion. I hate that people see lent as that.

    Sign the cone! My hubby and I would do it if we our cats had a cone!

    I gave up sweets for Lent last year and did the same thing – alternative “dessert” like tons of dried (sugar added) fruit, lots of PB, etc. I ate a lot more trying to satisfy my sweet tooth with non-sweets.

    Bummer on the memory card!! How frustrating!
    I gave up sweet for a month in January, and I found that I filled that void of sweets with other food and I think I actually gained weight because of it. It is hard when you give something up completely!

    That’s another reason I hate eating out. Too often I try to be healthy and then realize that I could make the food waaay better at home. That stinks about the memory card, I can’t own nice things either ;)
