A Rushed Post

Good Morning!  Sorry I didn’t post last night I had a terrible sinus head ache and went right to sleep as soon as I got home from work!  I have to run out so this post is going to be a quick one.

For breakfast yesterday I had another Peach Chobani but remembered some Kashi Island Vanilla cereal to mix in.

Picture 014 Picture 015

I love the vanilla cereal in the peach yogurt, so good!

Between breakfast and lunch I snacked on some Cherry Semolina Dr. Krackers.  10 of them to be exact.

Picture 003

Lunch was Harborside leftovers.

Picture 008

And I even snuck a roll out from the restaurant in my to go bag.

Picture 010

So like I said I came home yesterday with a horrible sinus headache, it’s been so long since I’ve had one it hit me out of nowhere!  I came home got right into bed, and slept until 8, when I woke up my headache was still there so I jumped in a hot shower hoping the steam would help.  No such luck.  Finally I took some nighttime cold and cough medicine and that knocked the headache out and I was finally feeling well enough to eat at around 10.  I just had a sandwich thin with pb.

Picture 012

Well I have to run now, I’ll be back tonight!

Too Fast

This weekend flew right by me!  After I posted Friday night (early Saturday morning really), I went right to bed.  I woke up pretty early and felt the beginnings of a nasty sinus headache.  Apparently my 3 glasses of wine aggravated my allergies.  After doing some research online I realized that there is a pretty good link between wine and sinuses.  I knew that drinking 3 glasses could not have kept me in bed until 4:30 yesterday afternoon but was surprised at how ill I felt.  Luckily I did feel much better around 4:30 and went to a friend’s college graduation party.  It was a lot of fun and I stuck to water (and lots and lots of it, probably 5 or 6 bottles worth) to combat the dehydration from the decongestants I had taken earlier in the day. 

This morning I woke up feeling 100% better and won’t be drinking any wine for a while, just to keep that from happening again.   I had a gigantic bowl of cereal this morning.

Picture 038

365 high fiber and kashi island vanilla mixed with skim milk, what a perfect bowl of cereal!

After breakfast we hung around the house, and then got ready to go to the movies.  We had decided to catch a matinee of The Hangover.  Oh my, I am so happy we went!  It was so funny, I’m kinda considering seeing it again.  Did anyone else see and love this movie as much as I did?

We did get some popcorn to share but it was obviously to dark to snap a picture of it.  After the movies we had some errands to run and then went to my parents house for dinner.  We had my usual Sunday night Favorite.  Roast Beef, with Mashed Potatoes, and Broccoli!

Picture 042

Perfect as usual!

I know I once again skipped a meal, but to be honest I slept kinda late today, and I ate some popcorn so although I should have planned ahead better for lunch, I’m happy I didn’t go hours without eating, although something more nutritious would have been nice. 

I’m off to do a few things before bed time!  Let’s hope Monday flies by!

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.

Picture 020

Picture 021

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”.

Picture 022

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.

Picture 023

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.

Picture 024

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.

Picture 025

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. 

Picture 028

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.

Picture 029

Yum yum yum.

All together:

Picture 030

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.

Catching Up

First off don’t forget about My First Giveaway you still have 2 days to enter!

Sorry I disappeared yesterday, I’ve been trying to enjoy vacation now that I’ve only got 4 days left.  This week is just flying by!  It’s been a lot of fun though and we’ve pretty much done everything we wanted to do while here except for one more thing that we’re planning on doing tomorrow night.  Other then that it’s going to be a lot more relaxing on the beach, by the pool, and some bike riding thrown in.

After posting the other day we had dinner of spaghetti and meatballs.  It was a cold rainy afternoon so it worked out perfectly.

DSCF4290

I also had a side salad of romaine and cucs.

DSCF4293

With some of that light balsamic that’s peaking over the bowl.

Later on Geoffrey came out to play.  I had no idea hermit crabs were nocturnal but they definitely are once the sun goes down they come out to play.  For the past 2 nights we’ll go to bed and hear Geoffrey moving around, in the morning we’ll see that rearranged all his things in his cage.

DSCF4298

 

Later on while watching TV Andrew, my parents, and I all split a 100 calorie bag of popcorn.

DSCF4306

The next morning we woke up and I had a smoothie that contained skim milk, pom juice, high fiber cereal, raspberries, blueberries, banana, and pb.

DSCF4312

After breakfast Andrew and I went on a quick 6 mile bike ride to the neighboring town of Duck, NC.

 DSCF4316

It was a windy day but bike riding was a good option for something to do outside.

DSCF4313

Once we got back we ate a quick lunch.  I had a random mix of things I found in the fridge.

I had  1/2 an Arnold Sandwich thin with a string cheese to make a piece of super cheesy bread.

DSCF4319

I also had left over rice from the other night.

DSCF4320

And for some crunch I had 1/2 a green pepper.

DSCF4321

All together:

DSCF4322

Later on we did a little more shopping (I actually bought nothing!)  But Andrew did buy some local made fudge and I of course helped him eat some of it.

DSCF4324

Absolutely delicious!

For dinner last night we had some home made burgers.

DSCF4329

On the side I had some Food Should Taste Good Tortilla chips.

DSCF4330

We also had some corn we picked up from a local stand.

DSCF4332

I of course had another apple cider on the side.

DSCF4331

We went to bed pretty early last night and I was excited to wake up and see the sun shining bright.  It was still a little windy but it was a good day to lay out in the sun and go in the hot tub.  I had some cereal and yogurt for breakfast.

DSCF4333 DSCF4334

We spent the morning out in the sun before we decided to take a short drive to Manteo for lunch and to walk around.

We ate lunch at a 50’s style diner, it was so cute.

DSCF4343

DSCF4344

DSCF4345

DSCF4347

There wasn’t many choices unless I wanted something fried or another burger, so I played it safe with a grilled chicken sandwich.

DSCF4349

Then we walked around the very scenic town of Manteo.

DSCF4352

DSCF4356

DSCF4363

I’m a rebel and climbed to the top even though it was blocked off.

We came back to the house and the wind had died down enough to swim and I stayed in the pool for an hour or so before we had to get ready to go to dinner.  We went to a restaurant we really enjoyed last year and decided to visit again.

DSCF4384

I decided to get the St. Lucia Chicken because I had that last year and loved it, and even though I had a chicken for lunch I decided to have it again because it was something really really good.

DSCF4386

After ordering some really delicious bread came out.

DSCF4387

And not long after our dinners came out.

DSCF4392

I ate one piece of chicken, most of the beans and about 1/2 the rice.  I brought the one piece of chicken home to eat for lunch tomorrow or Friday. 

Well that’s everything up till now!  I’m going to try to update tomorrow so I don’t have to do a marathon post like this again!  Hope you are all having a fabulous week, see you tomorrow!

$5 Footlong…

ZAand it wasn’t from Subway.  But we’ll get to that.

Yesterday was spent like any first day of vacation, hanging out by the pool, going to old favorite spots from the last time we were here, and of course napping.

For breakfast yesterday I had a cereal/yogurt mess.  It included vanilla chobani, 365 high fiber cereal, and Kashi Island Vanilla shredded wheat.

093

There is yogurt under there somewhere.

Then it was swimming time.  We hung out in the pool for most of the day. 

DSCF4214

Even Bailey enjoyed her time by the pool.

DSCF4211

Here’s a picture Andrew snuck of me enjoying the sun.

DSCF4209

I went in the hot tub for like 2 minutes but it was way to warm I felt like I was boiling in a soup pot.

After swimming and sunning we were hungry and we decided to go to one of our favorite local hamburger/hot dog joint. 

DSCF4225

Last year when we here for 2 weeks (oh and by the way “here” is the Outerbanks.  I didn’t realize I never said where we were until Caroline asked), and we came like 4 times. The chili dogs here are the best I ever had, and we had been talking about going again since my parents booked the trip.  And I decided to have the special of the day a $5 footlong with fries and a drink.  Actually my entire family and Andrew had the special.  Go big or go home right?

DSCF4217

I ate and loved every bite.   Spankys is a cute little place that has monkey’s just about everywhere.

 DSCF4222DSCF4215

Once we came back it was raining so we hung out on the screened in porch until the rain stopped and we went right back in the pool.  Then it looked like rain again so we came in and I fell asleep for a couple hours.

After I woke up refreshed and ready for to do some food shopping.  As soon as we got back I made myself a big salad and was going to have a pb sandwich on the side but wasn’t that hungry, that footlong really filled me up.

DSCF4226

It was romaine and cucs with Newman’s Own balsamic vinaigrette.

This morning we thought we would be waking up to rain but luckily it was sunny until early afternoon, we went for an early morning swim, and then I attempted to catch up on your blogs.  Once everyone was up and showered and dressed we went out to breakfast.  We went to a buffet called Western Sizzlin’.

I got a little of everything.

First to attempt to eat some healthy food I had some fruit.

DSCF4229

Then I had a big plate of all the breakfast goodies.

DSCF4231

A French toast stick ( I went back for a couple more of these).

DSCF4232 DSCF4233

I also had some homefries, bacon, a biscuit, and eggs.

DSCF4230

There’s a piece of toast under there but then saw the biscuits and decided to eat the biscuit and not eat the toast.  I can’t remember the last time I had a biscuit and I can have toast any time. 

Breakfast was of course wonderful, and then I did some super secret shopping, you’ll read about it soon enough (HINT giveaway tomorrow).

After returning back to the house we did some more swimming and then it started to pour.  We’re inside now, but as soon as I post this we have some more shopping to do. 

Hope you are all having a fabulous Sunday!

Empty Fridge

I guess I thought I had more food in there then we did we currently have yogurt, eggs, blackberries, and some bread as well as some condiments.  I have no fresh produce and it’s making me nuts!  We leave Friday so I’m guessing we’re going to be digging in the freezers for meals for the next 2 nights.

For breakfast I planned on having cereal and yogurt, well I totally forgot the yogurt.  I also had no money to get milk from the vending machine.  So my breakfast was dry cereal.  As you can imagine this did not do a good job of filling me up. 

Picture 005

Lunch was part of cleaning out the fridge,  my parents actually left for vacation a few days ago so I’m doing my part in cleaning their fridge out as well.  They had a stuffed bread last week for dinner, it was stuffed with sauce, cheese, and chicken breast.  It was delicious and I was totally satisfied from this meal.

Picture 007

For dinner I had an opened jar of sauce I had to use before we left, I also had some cleaning to do so I made a super quick dinner of whole wheat angel hair pasta, and meatless meatballs.

Picture 009

Delicious simple dinner in between chores.

I’m pretty much all packed for vacation minus the things I use daily.  I’m shocked because typically I am such a last minute packer, it feels good knowing I have at least one thing out of the way. 

I haven’t mentioned my weight loss on the blog since the first week when I lost 4.5 lbs.  Well since then I have lost a total of 25lbs.  I still have some more weight to lose though so I hate buying clothes knowing I hope to get smaller, unfortunately I only have one bathing suit from a couple years ago that fits so I will have to go shopping for a few more tomorrow.  Yuck I hate bathing suit shopping!

I got a couple comments yesterday about my lack of snacking.  I have never been a snacker.  I will occasionally snack and I do post those snacks or at least write here that I did.  I do sometimes take bites of Andrew’s food and don’t take a picture of it or write about it on here but we’re talking about bites.  Before I started the blog my eating was all over the place, some days I would only eat dinner so I think my body is still getting used to the idea of eating 3 normal meals a day.  I think I’m getting enough calories without snacking during the day but I’m going to start doing some calorie counts and make sure I’m where I should be without them.

 

I hope you all have a great night but Andrew just got home and Monday and Tuesdays we don’t get to spend much time together so I’m going to go talk to him until bed time!  Have a fabulous night!

Back To Normal

I didn’t post yesterday because I felt so sick that I didn’t eat much.  It would have been a boring post although what I ate was healthy the amount I ate was not.  I would estimate for the whole day yesterday I ate about 600-800 calories which is obviously not enough for anyone.  Today I woke up feeling so much better and was actually able to eat, and eat well.  Amazing what a couple days of extra rest can do.

This morning I woke up starving, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to wait until I got to work to eat my breakfast so I ate before I left this morning.  I had vanilla yogurt with blackberries, 365 brand fiber cereal, and kashi vanilla island cereal. 

Picture 003

Picture 002

Probably my favorite breakfast combo right now. 

Work was okay today, a little hectic but it made the day go by faster, plus it’s really like my Thursday so there’s always more to do towards the end of the week. 

For lunch I packed a few pieces of chicken over a bed of lettuce with balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

Picture 006

That piece of chicken I used is left overs from the diner we stopped at Saturday night, there wasn’t much chicken but it was a big salad that did a great job of filling me up.

I guess I’m making up for yesterday’s low calorie day because by 3 I was hungry.  Not just hungry for a small snack, but something substantial.  I decided to try a new bar I bought.

Picture 007

This was good, artificial tasting, but good.  I’d definitely buy it again because it’s good in a pinch.

After my taste of chicken for lunch I definitely wanted more so Andrew and I stopped at the store for a rotisserie chicken.   For a side we used a new find we got from Whole Food’s last week.

Picture 009

This box is 3 servings but Andrew and I finished it, it was so good!  He had a little more then me but I know I had a little more then just one serving.

I had a big bowl with rice on the bottom, steamed French cut green beans, and some white meat chicken on top.

Picture 010

Picture 014

And all mixed up:

Picture 016

Wow this was fantastic I would definitely do it again, it was so simple to make obviously since really I only had to cook the rice. 

I’m actually contemplating a dessert.  I’m thinking some fro yo with melted pb, I’ll let you know tomorrow if I wound up having it.

I hope everyone had a great day and is having a good evening.  I’ll see you all tomorrow.  Thanks for all the “get better” wishes those comments definitely made my mood lift a little even if I was still feeling sick!

Cheese From a What?!

Sorry I didn’t post last night there’s so much going on here and not enough time in the day.  I have a very busy weekend and I’m not sure I’ll be able to read and comment blogs but by Friday afternoon I should be home free and able to catch up! 

For breakfast yesterday I totally switched it up and some cereal, blackberries, and non-greek yogurt (gasp).  I decided to splurge on other things at whole foods the other day and didn’t grab any.  I bought a big container of Stoneyfield Vanilla yogurt, it’s okay but it’s not thick and creamy like I’m used to!

Picture 002

This cereal mix is 365 brand high fiber cereal and Kashi Island Vanilla.  How have I never gotten this before?  It’s so delicious!

If you haven’t noticed the trend this week I didn’t make lunches ahead and was forced to leave and pick up something for lunch.  Yesterday I went for a cheap meal from Quick Check, I got a whole wheat wrap with roast beef, fresh mozzarella, cucs, red onions, lettuce, and vinegar.

Picture 004

Decent.

Once I came back from work I was accosted by co-workers to try a snack that one of them had brought back from his trip home to Mongolia.  This man has brought in things to our pot lucks like yak cheese, and horse milk.  My first question was if it was yak cheese, he answered it wasn’t and then handed me a piece of this.

Picture 010 

Any guesses?  He broke me off a much smaller piece for me to try.  I put it in my mouth and instantly I was hit with this tangy sour taste.  It was definitely cheese but I couldn’t figure out how cheese could be crunchy like a meringue.  The flavor was pretty awful but bearable.  After I said it tasted like a bad piece of cheese cake that had been left out in the sun, they told me what I had just consumed.

CAMEL CHEESE!

OH MY GOD!  I didn’t know what to think, I promptly returned the rest of this chunk and then drank a whole bottle of water.  After about an hour I started to feel a little nauseous so I decided to eat something that I know would taste wonderful and hopefully settle the feeling in my tummy! 

Picture 009

It worked until other co-workers started trying it, and I started to feel ill again.  So did my boss so we took a lot of unscheduled breaks to go outside and get some fresh air.

Dinner last night was a taco made out of 3 meatless meatballs.

Picture 012

This was fantastic as usual.

After dinner I went to go see Jessica’s,  one of my best friend’s, new apartment!  She is moving into an apartment about a 5 minute walk from us!  Just like Andrew and I, she’s living on the 3rd floor of an old Victorian house.  It’s adorable and I couldn’t wait to see it!  So we spent the evening hanging out there helping her clean.  After we got home it was time for us to clean because my aunt might be stopping by tonight. 

On the Agenda for the weekend.

Friday

  • bank
  • mall with mom
  • lunch with mom and her friend
  • helping Jessica move in
  • visiting with my aunt from Virginia
  • shopping for vacation clothes!

Saturday

  • Driving up to upstate NY for my cousin’s communion and communion party, which is an all day affair.

Sunday

  • Setting up my cousin’s bridal shower
  • Then the shower itself, I’m dreading it, I don’t get along with the bride’s mom, my aunt, and her other daughter and my cousin, we haven’t spoken to each other in over 3 years.  They both still owe me an apology for something my cousin did to me and they refuse to see that she is wrong.  The details are so old and boring I won’t get into it, but I’m hoping Sunday is drama free.
    Hope you all have a fantastic Friday!  Hopefully I’ll be popping in from time to time!

Breakfast, Brunch, and Brinner

Every meal I ate today I would, or have already had, at some point for breakfast.  Breakfast is my favorite meal so it’s not weird that a whole day’s eats could be considered a breakfast food.  It’s a rainy gloomy day so I just stuck with my favorite foods for today.

For breakfast I had a delicious bowl of overnight oats. It contained 1/2 a cup oats, 1/2 a cup skim milk, cinnamon, and vanilla, with a scoop of pb on it of course.

Picture 004

As much as I love my yogurt and granola breakfasts, there’s nothing like oats to make you feel satisfied for hours.

Lunch I had a yogurt mess.  It contained 1/2 a cup pb puffins, 1/2 a cup organic apple cinnamon morning o’s (whole foods brand), 1/2 a mango, green grapes, a banana, and of course a Vanilla Chobani. 

Picture 005

It doesn’t look good at all does it?  But it was delicious, it took me forever to eat.  It was a really great lunch and something I will probably have again very soon.

For a snack around 3 I had an McIntosh apple.

Picture 012

I was craving eggs for dinner so I decided to just have that and make it a day of breakfast food.  I had 2 eggs scrambled with lots of spinach, and a less then an ounce of Mexican blend cheese.

Picture 018

On the side I had Dr. Prager’s Potato Littles, they are obviously supposed to be for kids, but I like my food in fun shapes sometimes too!

Picture 017

And a veggie breakfast “sausage”

Picture 016

All together:

Picture 020

After dinner we caught up on some things on our DVR, including last night’s Biggest Loser and Lost.  No Lost spoiler or anything but seriously, WTF is going on?  So confusing!

While watching TV I decided to enjoy a serving of fro yo with some chocolate chips. 

Picture 024

I’ve had a ton of sweets this week, a piece of chocolate birthday cake, and Ice cream cake Monday, Tagalongs yesterday, and Fro yo today.  I know most of you allow yourself to have something for dessert each night, but it’s so weird to me that I’ve been craving sweets.  As I’ve said many times I don’t have sweet tooth at all so to have this many sweets in a week is pretty unheard of for me.  At least I’m keeping my portions small.

Well tomorrow is Friday!  I’m so happy that this week is almost over, just one more day.  I have no definite plans but some of my friends were in Savannah last week so I’ll probably be seeing them this weekend.  What are you doing this weekend? Anything exciting?

Running Late

Today there was drama, drama, drama, I don’t want to get into it on here, I just hate being thrown in the middle of things, after I got out of work it was time to deal with the drama for almost 2 hours! Then I rushed to the gym did the first day of the first week of the couch to 5k plan.  Now I’m home and finishing up getting ready to go out.  But I pledged to myself I would blog each day this weekend since I’ve been sucking at that lately so get ready for the fastest post ev-er.

For breakfast this morning I had the peach 2% Fage from my samples.  It was really good, but I’m still partial to the Chobani, the Fage tasted a wee bit artificial.

Picture 001

On the side I also had a piece of my fabulous bread.

Picture 002

I totally devoured it.

Lunch I had an Amy’s Vegetable Lasagna.

Picture 003

It was just alright, sorry Amy but it was kinda soupy.  The sauce tasted great, the noodles got crunchy, and the filling was too watery, it tasted fine, just not what I expected.

Picture 005

After I got home the drama started, I was on the phone until 7 and then it was time to rush to the gym.  I ate 1/2 an unpictured clif bar (pear and apple strudel).

I’m currently eating a cereal bowl of puffins, and apple cinnamon morning o’s.

Picture 008

 

Picture 010

Alright girls, I’m off to meet up with some friends!  Have a fun Friday night!
