Quesadillas and Ice Cream

Remember the other day when I asked about afternoon snacks? Well, I’m still trying to find a winner. Yesterday and today I had yogurt with cereal and extra milk. I don’t know why I like Greek Yogurt with milk over regular runny yogurt but I do. Din-ah! I made quesadillas last night and enjoyed them so much I made them again. I go through phases where I become obsessed with one … [Read more...]

Hot Salad and Going to Panama

IMG_9878-800x533.jpg

My day was pretty chill, I just had one afternoon client and some mild admin work. Mid-afternoon I got hungry out of nowhere and ate a banana with sunflower seed butter while trying to decide what snack I also wanted. <- Tell me you do that too. A smoothie! Why didn’t I realize that 3 minutes ago before I ate the PB naner and toast?! Oh well… Then, I headed off to train … [Read more...]

This afternoon I had a big green smoothie in a mug. I had a couple of handfuls of cashews earlier so this just had ice, protein powder, almond milk and spinach. Drippy, delicious mess. Isn’t it weird when you have a major can’t-get-it-out-of-your-mind craving?! Today I was not stopping until I had spaghetti squash. I made a special trip for one after I had wrapped up all my … [Read more...]

Watermelon Wins

I got the big pack of yogurts from Costco today so I busted them open for a snack. Chia seeds and some cereal were added post pic. Then, I headed to work for 3 evening clients. When I got home it was after 8pm and I wanted food fast! I ate sliced turkey while heating this up - Broccoli with marinara and garlic cheese bread. Thoughts while eating this, “I don’t know why I … [Read more...]

Selective Memory

Since I posted my September goals earlier I completely missed posting lunch. I ended up getting to the gym for a strength workout! (Proud of that.) On the way home I stopped by the store because I love dirty grapes. I made a big salad for lunch – this time topped with black bean burger, chickpeas and cashews. This might be my new favorite thing. Then, I worked it up until … [Read more...]

Ben Is Better

I worked 4 to 8pm today, so I packed a snack in between clients since that’s my usual hungry time. I can’t decide if I love or hate this bar. I got this from the HLS swag bag, but had tried it before. The chocolate flavor is delicious, but the consistency is stale (it’s not just a stale bar as I’ve tried them before). By the time I got home I was super hungry and threw … [Read more...]

I’m Thick Like My Smoothies

IMG_8266-600x800.jpg

Hello! I don’t know what compelled me to buy blue eyeliner last week, but I decided to give it a test run today. I thought it was a little weird at first, but I think I like it I think the key is to make everything else neutral so you don’t look like a hoochie. But, if you are a hooch definitely lay it on thick – how else you gonna advertise? Today we had a big end of … [Read more...]

Surprise Blood Test

IMG_8130-800x600.jpg

It’s been almost a month since I went to the doctor for the foot herp. The physician’s assistant did a treatment, but it never fully went away. And actually it started to come back. Boo. So, I went back today to see my doctor (who I love!). She said we were going to “burn the sht out of it”. And we did. But, I’ll still need to go back in a week for a follow up. We had time to … [Read more...]

Come to Mama…Chia

IMG_8154-800x533.jpg

I had  a full afternoon schedule and wanted a lasting snack before I left. So, I made a big protein smoothie and topped it with cereal. I could eat this three times a day and sometimes do.Oh, and this is my other new bowl! Love it because there is a flower printed on the bottom so I’m not as sad when all the food is gone and I’m left with a sad empty bowl. When I got home I … [Read more...]

Headed for Divorce

IMG_8110-800x533.jpg

There are a lot of reasons why Ben should leave me… I blogged on our honeymoon (and here and here) I watch all the reality TV he hates I eat all the watermelon and never share any with him I consume more fiber than any one girl should But the thing that irks him the most is my collection of plates. I have TONS of plates that don’t stack up right because they’re … [Read more...]

It’s What’s On the Inside

I have been trying to catch up on emails all day! Still working on it if I owe you one I picked up a few Manager’s Specials at the store earlier – a package of asparagus stir fry and lean turkey burgers. Since I had no idea what to make for dinner I decided to just combine the two. I diced up the turkey patties and cooked it up with the veggies plus seasoning. When it was … [Read more...]

Random Stir Frys Dot Com

I had a serious craving for cooked bell peppers and onions for dinner. That’s really all I wanted, but since I’m now a practicing member of the Church of Protein I added 2 chicken burgers and 2 veggie burgers to the mix too. Yeah 2 of each - I’m not only a follower of the Church of Protein I’m also the new leader of their cult. But, I have some scary news… Ben came home … [Read more...]

My First Cannoli

I had a very “interesting” day at work. Not sure what to say except, at least it kept me from stressing about the Healthy Living Summit? (Yeah, I’m super nervous about my presentation on Blogger Safety. Anyone have suggestions on how public speaking?) Ben and I haven’t had dinner together yet this week so when we realized our schedules worked tonight I thought up a good “His … [Read more...]

No Que Dippy Eggs

My schedule as a personal trainer is different from the normal 8 to 5 so I’ve had to adjust my eating accordingly. If I have a client at or after 6pm I eat dinner super early bird special style. That happens 4 days a week lately, so I’m already used to  this  Today it was an egg sandwich with green bean “fries”. The spread is  Laughing Cow garlic and tons of ketchup. I made … [Read more...]

Eggs Twice

IMG_7683-800x533.jpg

After my 5pm appointment I came home for dinner before my 7pm client. I don’t know who I am anymore – all I could think of was eggs and/or tuna. Since we don’t have tuna I went with eggs. I made a big scramble with veggies and served it up with an english muffin – half with garlic laughing cow and half with jam. Jam on it. So I had eggs twice today and am looking forward to … [Read more...]

Dinner Number Two

IMG_7360-800x533.jpg

I had a few evening clients today. It’s always hard for me to decide if I should have a big snack or dinner before hand. Today I went with what I thought was dinner. Leftovers from yesterday and an unpictured bowl of cereal… Then it was all work work work When I got home I decided I wanted Meal #8 of the day to be another dinner. If you’re keeping score, that’s 2 breakfasts, … [Read more...]
