180 Degrees

I don’t know if it was the whole “fake it until you make it” from yesterday, or if  I’m finally back to my normal eating routine, or if it’s the fact that it’s my Friday, but I am in a much better mood today.  I don’t know if I come across this way on the blog, but I am usually a very happy-go-lucky person, especially around friends and families.  It’s kind of impossible to have a serious conversation with me because I’m always joking around, and today I finally feel like I’m getting back to that.  Again I have to credit you guys because of your kind words.  Andrew was reading through my comments from the past few posts today and kept saying how nice everyone was, and how supportive you guys really are.  He didn’t have to tell me that though I’ve known that since day one.

I had another successful eating day!  Planning ahead has definitely helped, tomorrow will be the real test though because I’ll be home all day.  I feel like when I am forced to eat at work on schedule I do much better, it’s definitely something I need to work on for the weekends.  For the most part my choices are healthy but my eating is sporadic, my goal for the weekend is to eat on my normal schedule from during the week and see how that works for me.

For breakfast I relied on my favorite go-to food.  Chobani of course.  I had a vanilla chobani with Kashi Vanilla mini wheats.

Such a delicious combo.  I’m absolutely in love with this cereal.

Lunch was a pretty great, and I was looking forward to one component of it pretty much right after I finished my breakfast.  While shopping the other night I bought some sliced deli chicken, I put 2 slices (it’s pretty thick) and spicy brown mustard on a “Deli Flat”.

See the slight green in the upper right corner.  That was the part I was looking forward to, it was of course another one of my favorite pickles.

I will never get tired of those pickles. Oh and Laura that pen is totally the swag (stuff we all get) from the bridal show last week, new favorite pen, peace out purple advair pen.

Such a simple but perfect lunch.

And for a snack around 3 I had a braeburn apple.  God I missed these, and they were on sale the other day so you know I picked up a few.

Ok for all of you in the Northeast, what is up with this weather?  I’m so sick of fog, rain, and cold.  It’s almost the middle of June where’s my sunshine and 80 degree temps?  Ugh.  This weather is making me crave some serious comfort food, so I decided to have a quick bowl of angel hair pasta.

I was going to make a salad but really wasn’t feeling it, so instead I just chopped up a green pepper and some cucumber on the side for some crunch and green.

Yum yum yum.

All together:

This looks like I ate around 9:30 because of the lighting but it’s just so dark here, I ate around 6:30 but you’d never guess.

After dinner I drank some unpictured coffee, and watched some trash tv.  I have a lot to catch up on.  Who else watched this week’s Real Housewives of NJ?  Ok for real, how is next week already the finale?  I’m sad but at the same time I’m so looking forward to the episode!  I also watched Kathy Griffin’s Life on the D List, am I the only maniac in blogland who absolutely loves this show?  I laugh until I cry and rewind parts over and over again, that Kathy is a very funny lady.  If I could fly out to LA and be her assistant I’d be the happiest girl in the world. 

What is your guilty pleasure tv show?

Well I’m off to watch other shows I have DVRed and haven’t had time to watch, I hope you all have a great night, and I’m hoping all your Friday’s go by quickly.

    Glad to hear you’re feeling better!

    Guilty pleasure= Rachael Ray. So many people despise her and think she’s annoying, but I just love her talk show!

    Hey girlie! So glad you’re feeling better today! Thank goodness its FRIDAYYYYYYY! Yummy eats. I haven’t purchased chobanis in a while (just to cut back on the $$ for a while), but now I’m craving one :). Def watched Real Housewives…I said the SAME thing- how is it finale time already? It looks like its going to be an awesome episode next week- I cannot wait.

  • 5. Laura  |  June 12, 2009 at 7:31 am

    I gave my swag to Fran bc she apparently was unable to get a free pen herself! The things I do for that woman.

    And my guilty pleasure TV show is definitely Keeping Up with the Kardashians. They are famous just for the sake of being famous…but it’s enough to keep me hooked. Although last night’s rain kept me up so I got a little hooked on VH1’s Daisy of Love…more crap TV but once you start you just can’t stop.

    Mmm that island vanilla kashi cereal is my new fav! my guilty pleasure TV shows are whatever is on the Food Network- Iron Chef, Bobby Flay, Chopped, etc. Pathetic, no?

  • 7. Betsy  |  June 12, 2009 at 7:45 am

    Last weekend I watched every single episode of the Real Housewives of NJ in a hotel room on vacay. I don’t have Bravo at home, sadly! I think I may need to find the new episodes online though, I got hooked.

    That pickle is SO green!!! What kind is it? I’m a pickle fanatic. My favorite guilty pleasure tv show(s) are any reality television shows. As much as I make fun of them, Nick and I watch them a lot. We like the competition shows, such as Top Chef and Amazing Race!

    so glad you are getting back to your usual joking-around-self! (I hope I get to meet you in October- I don’t think it comes across in my blog either but 99% of the time my conversations revolve around me joking around! Heh…)

    The weather is crazy here too- we usually have fog/rain all year round but are having a very bizarre and out of character bout of sunshine. I’ll send some your way 🙂

    I had a HUGE pickle at the restaurant last night and thought of you!

  • 10. Tyler  |  June 12, 2009 at 8:34 am

    Planning ahead is definitely the way to go. It helps because you can plan your eating around your busy schedule.

    And you’re right. The weather in the Northeast has been just awful. Rainy, cold, and horrible.

    Somebody get me Al Gore on the phone.

    glad you’re feeling better and that you’re getting back into your routine! I hate that it always takes me so long to get back in the swing of things, but such is life.

    those pickles are so super green!

    favorite trash tv….I love ANTM and will watch them over, and over, and over…it’s bad.

  • 12. ksgoodeats  |  June 12, 2009 at 9:25 am

    The weather is just jacked everywhere! It was yucky here too! Glad you had a great day – you deserve it!!

    I’m thinking I need to try that cereal next!

    and the sunshine finally made an appearance this afternoon, yay! now it just needs to learn how to be a teeny bit more consistent.

    i’m glad you’re feeling back to your happy-go-lucky self. good luck with your scheduled eating plans for this weekend!

  • 16. Nicole  |  June 14, 2009 at 1:32 pm
