Ah, I’m such a sucker for those peanut butter cups! The Newman’s Own brand is good, too. And I love the idea for this “silent” post.

Looks like a great day! Love your mug-super cute!

Love this post (not to say I don’t love your words), but this was so fun!

So how many days did your clean eating challenge actually last this time?
November 14, 2012 at 10:12 am
Hey Joe, Thanks for asking! I actually did great last week and fell off on Saturday after the marathon. Now I’m struggling to get back on track, but I am doing better than I would have without the challenge. I only ate a sliver of the pumpkin pie from yesterday and one cookie last night. I have a tendency to have an all or nothing mentality so I think that is progress

Good answer to an obviously snarky commenter. No one is perfect 100 percent of the time. Just do the best you can, most of the time. Good progress!

But she does IT EVERY WEEK. Monday rolls around…new challenge. 3 days later back to binging in the car and eating crap. So you are one cook and pumpkin pie. what about he chocolate and chips above? by the way, looking great in that gym photo. I know when i have dark circles under my eyes and stand with my legs spread looking chubby i think i should post this for the internet to see!

Hey Jen (or is it Lauren since you’ve posted as both), Yes, many weeks I set mini-goals for myself to work on. I have been eating cleaner and did it all last week. I didn’t eat the chocolate in that picture, it was just part of the package I was sent. I did eat the chips and I have no issue with that – my goal was to cut back on sugar so that doesn’t bother me (funny that it seems to bother you though…).
If you really think I have an issue with binging, which is an eating disorder – what kind of person are you to call me chubby in the same comment?

Jen/Lauren/Joe….whoever you are…I, for one, appreciate Monica keepin’ it real. MANY of us struggle with trying to eat better. But some days, it is an hour by hour struggle. We win some and we lose some, and many of us “start over on Monday.” I go to the gym at 5:00am and I’m sure I don’t look good. The only fitness/food blogs I read are the ones who are honest, “real” people. Keep it up, Monica.

I like to think that most people in life are not like joe/jen/lauren, but I’m starting to fear that isn’t so. It’s so easy to comment on someone else’s health — and I realize that Monica has a blog where she puts herself out there for the world to view. But it says a lot about your own health, particularly your mental health, to post nasty comments to deliberately bring someone else down. I’m not saying the world should be all rainbows and butterflies. Lord, no. But why not choose simple decency?

Ha, those cookies are funny ; )

I know! I almost trashed them, but was hoping no one else would think they were funny…

Love that you got Vegas in there too! Looks like a fun, yummy week! (although 5:30 is a tad early)
Whoa, your gym looks awesome! And your Tuesday looks pretty great, too

Who needs words when you have pictures like that. Hey Kitty.
November 14, 2012 at 10:04 am
Lots of goodies in that box!
November 14, 2012 at 10:15 am
ARe those butterscotch kisses or pumpkin in the cookies…yum!
November 14, 2012 at 10:17 am
They’re pumpkin and filled with white chocolate (I’m not a fan of them).

I need to get my hands on those chips
November 14, 2012 at 10:38 am
I LOVE your cat!! I want to steal him/her but it will probably fight with my own little fur ball.
November 14, 2012 at 10:58 am
He barfed up all his breakfast this morning. You can have him.

What are the kisses in those nipple cookies? I make them too but they are pb with a reg kiss. Those are some mighty fleshy looking kisses and it might make a hilarious(yet delicious) baked good for holiday parties.
Ha! I know, right?! They are pumpkin spice kisses (I was basically trying to get rid of them).
November 14, 2012 at 11:15 am
This is my first comment, but I have been reading for a while. I love everything about your blog, especially your fun sense of humor! Keep up the awesome posts
I know you’ve mentioned that you aren’t crazy about oatmeal, but this morning I made pumpkin oats and added a little cocoa powder, brown sugar, and sunflower seed butter. I thought I’d share because it was really good and almost tasted like cookie batter!
November 14, 2012 at 12:10 pm
Sounds delicious! I put brown sugar and SFSB but haven’t added cocoa yet!

November 14, 2012 at 11:27 am
The salad and cookies, yum!
5:30 is just way too early for life to start. haha!

Those FSTG Sweet Potato chips are the bees knees! I picked some up at a rest stop awhile back on a road trip & they’re TASTY! Lucky you get to try all of the other gems they have!
I miss your words!

Loving the fact that the cookies match the cat!
November 14, 2012 at 3:33 pm

Food Should Taste Good sweet potatoe chips are my absolute favorite!
November 14, 2012 at 8:11 pm
I would do some serious damage to that snack box! Lucky you!!
November 15, 2012 at 6:46 am
Why can I not find those pumpkin hershey kisses anywhere? I want to make cookies with them to bring to a friends for Thanksgiving, where did you get those? Also, is that guacamole or avocado hummus in the picture with the chips because my mouth just started watering.
November 15, 2012 at 8:01 am
Ben found them in NYC at the Hershey’s store, so it’s kinda cheating. I bet a big fancy Target would have them? It’s guac!!!! I love it
November 16, 2012 at 6:42 pm
