Disappearing Act

Sorry for disappearing for a few days.  I’ve been pretty busy at night and have crashed out as soon as my head has hit the pillow.  I have a ton of catching up to do and a to-do list a mile long, so let’s get into it.

On Wednesday morning I had brought oatmeal again but completely forgot my training started right at 8 so I wound having a clif bar while sitting in training for breakfast.  This photo is from last weekend because I ate this in class I didn’t want to snap a picture.

Picture 002

Training went really well and made the first 4 hours of work fly by.  I kind of assumed we were going to get treated to lunch like last time so didn’t bring anything.  I wound up going to the Subway nearby.  While I was in line waiting to order there 5 very annoying people in front of me singing the 5 dollar foot long song.  It was so irratating but they did convince me to get a Veggie Delight Foot long.

Picture 001

He may have put a little too much vinegar on it but I loved it anyway.  I ate this half and then on the other half just ate the green peppers and cucumbers, a foot long is a lot of food!  On the side I also had a bag of baked lays.

Picture 005

Dinner that night was actually a brinner.  I had 3 whole wheat pancakes, one with blueberries, one with chocolate chips, and one plain.  I couldn’t decide how I wanted it so I had one of each.  Perfect in my opinion.

Picture 008

Blueberry.

Chocolate Chip.

Plain.

All together.

Later that night my sister called asking us to come over so we went over there, by the time we left and got back I was exhausted so I put myself right to bed.

The next morning I had the oatmeal I had brought to work with me on Wednesday.

Picture 014

This was over-two-night oatmeal and it did not disappoint.

This is when I became a bad food blogger I had completely forgotten lunch and wasn’t hungry enough to want anything so I didn’t eat lunch.  I believe this is the first time I’ve skipped a meal since starting the blog.  It was something I used to do all the time and of course by 5 I was famished.

My Uncle Bobby was stopping by my parents house on his way down to my Aunt’s house in Virginia where he will be celebrating Easter, so Andrew and I headed over there to visit with him for the night.  For dinner my mom made a great baked ziti!  Yummy, the first time this year I’ve had any, it of course was delicious.

Picture 016

I definitely had a little more.

And I had 2 pieces of sourdough.

Picture 017

Hanging out with my family last night was a ton of fun and we didn’t wind up getting home until almost midnight, so I wrote out my to-do-list read for about 10 minutes and then fell right to sleep. 

This is my first Friday off and I’ve decided to most of the time use Friday’s to be my big day to run errands and do things around the house, that way I still have 2 days of the weekend to enjoy.  After watching the weather last night I saw that today and tomorrow are going to be rainy so when I woke up and saw sun at 6:30 I jumped out of bed, waking Andrew up, and asked him if he wanted to walk on the trail.  He also wanted to before the weather turned crappy so we got up, got dressed, and got out the door.  On our way out the door I snacked on a new bar.

Picture 018

I got this from Melissa at the blogger brunch back in March.  Thank you Melissa this was delicious.  The texture was a lot like a larabar and the flavor of the cranberries were perfectly sweet and tart, it was a really great bar!

Picture 024

Andrew was nice enough to snap some pictures for the blog of the trail for me today.  The sun was still coming up as we were walking and we only ran into 3 other people on the trail, going that early in the morning was so nice!

Picture 025

Picture 026

Here’s the ramp at the marina for loading the boats into the water and taking them out.

Picture 027

In the back that big boat is the SeaStreak ferry that takes you right into NYC.

Picture 028

The rest of these shots are from on the trail.

Picture 029

Picture 030

There are some boardwalks to cross.

Picture 032

But most of it is gravel.

Picture 034

Most of it goes right along the beach.

Picture 039

Right across the bay is Brooklyn, I waved to all you Brooklyn Bloggers, did you see me?

Picture 046

I can’t wait till all those trees are green, we’re getting there.

Picture 048

Our walk lasted 1 hour and 21 minutes and I burned 599 calories, can we round up to 600?  It sounds so much better.

After our walk we headed right out to grocery shopping the store was empty!  Once again I rushed to put everything away and didn’t get a picture.  Once everything was in it’s place we ate breakfast, I had a smoothie.

Picture 050

This smoothie contained:

  • Spinach
  • POM juice
  • Skim Milk
  • 1 scoop soy protein powder
  • frozen sliced peaches
  • blueberries
  • 1 banana Picture 051

Yummy!

So it’s time for me to start to-doing.  Our list is very very long, want to see?

  1. Grocery Shopping
  2. Blog
  3. Vacuum
  4. Dust
  5. Put laundry away
  6. Wash windows
  7. dishes
  8. organize office
  9. clean bathroom
  10. wash floors
  11. scrub counters and cabinets.
  12. clean closet in bedroom
  13. gym
  14. comment and read blogs
  15. Bake/and mail Banana bread for blogger bake sale.

These are in no particular order, it’s just how I thought of things as I laid in bed last night. 

So I’m off to get to work, I’ll be back after lunch!

Where Did the Sun Go?

Today I woke up to a beautiful sunny day, then I walked outside and “brrr” it was cold, and unfortunately the sun didn’t stick around long and by 9 it was look more like winter then like the sunny spring days we’ve been having.  I’m thisclose to packing up my things and heading south.

At work today I realized that I have training for the next 4 work days, meaning with Friday off the next time I’ll be sitting at my desk will be Wednesday.  Today was crazy busy trying to get everything done so that I won’t be bothered during training.  I’m so looking forward to my first Friday off.   I have moved past the point of panic and have decided to just relax and enjoy the long weekends.  Obviously if I need the money I’ll pick something up but I have a feeling I’ll be okay for a while. 

I still have a lot of blog reading and commenting to do so let’s get into today’s eats.

For breakfast this morning I had overnight oats.  I was going to attempt to eat it cold as I’ve seen some bloggers do.  Totally not my cup of tea, the picture is from before I heated it up but after a couple bites I marched my behind to the microwave and nuked it.

Picture 001

It doesn’t even look good does it?

For lunch today I revisited a meal I really enjoyed a few weeks ago, a pb and apple sandwich.

Picture 002

Picture 003

I can’t believe it took me 24 years to try this sandwich but it’s definitely one of my favorites.

While hurrying to get my work done I snacked on some grapes around 3:30.

Picture 004

They are totally on their last leg.

After work I came home and did all the dishes in the sink while contemplating what I wanted for dinner.  I had no clue what-so-ever, I think mentally I’m so ready to be eating meat again that nothing sounds good unless it’s got chicken in it.  I still hadn’t figured it out a while later but decided to have some tacos using MorningStar veggie crumbles.

Picture 005

While heating up the crumbles I also added from frozen corn kernels and then mixed in the taco seasoning.  I had it on a ww wrap with less then an ounce of cheese, and some romaine lettuce.  I loved the crunch the corn added to the taco.  I plan on adding corn more often.

Well like I said I still have some catching up to do with my Google reader, so I will “see” you all tomorrow evening.

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?

Saturday Night Celebration

I just finished getting ready to go out and celebrate my 24th birthday, I wish it was my actual birthday but that’s not until Monday, I think it’s so much more fun going out on my actual birthday then before hand but oh well, there’s no way I’m going out on Monday night. 

Friends will be arriving in 15 minutes so I need to rush this post out.  I didn’t get to post yesterday because I was asked to work from home this weekend for some overtime.  I can’t turn down extra money but I had such a busy weekend planned I needed to get it all done last night.  I wound up working from when I got home until after midnight.  But I got some extra money and the rest of the weekend was not interrupted by work.

Friday Breakfast after my oats Thursday morning I knew I wanted them again on Friday, it was 1/2 a cup oats, 1/2 a cup skim milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and pb.

Picture 002

For lunch I took the easy way out and brought an Amy’s Santa Fe Bowl.  Not the best looking lunch but it was good, and filling I only wound up eating 3/4 of it.

Picture 003

On our way home from work Andrew and I decided to just go right to Harborside grille for dinner.  I did not feel like cooking and wanted a little more time out of the house before I was glued in front of the computer screen.

I got a house salad to start with balsamic dressing on the side.

Picture 007

I love the dressing there!

For dinner there weren’t many meatless options but once I saw thin crust pizza, I was sold on that idea.

Picture 016

It was on either Lavash bread or something very similar, it was so good.  That’s really the only good picture I got the rest were blurry, but it was just a normal size personal size pizza, and I ate it all.

Then it was time to work, I couldn’t believe I was up so late on Friday doing work, what a boring Friday night right?

I woke up bright and early this morning and the weather was so deceiving, it snowed yesterday morning, and I had heard the weekend was supposed to be nice, with all the sun pouring in I thought it would definitely be warm out, unfortunately it hovered under 50 pretty much all day.  I got back into bed and read for a couple hours.

By the time I got around to eating I decided to make it a brunch and had pb and raspberry preserves on double fiber bread.

Picture 018

Before going to the gym a little later I decided to snack on a pickle, I only have one more left in the jar.  So sad. 

Picture 022

Another blurry picture I don’t know what’s up with my camera lately. 

After the gym my sister called and asked me to stop by to hang out, so we stopped by there and watched TV.  Then it was time to go home and eat and clean.  I wanted something I could cook in less then 5 minutes, in the fridge we had leftover pasta from the other night so I made a Bolognese sauce with jarred sauce and morning star veggie crumbles.  Delicious!

Picture 028

On the side I had a gigantic salad with romaine, spinach, and 4 mini sweet peppers.

Picture 027

Then it was time to start getting ready, I’m trying to convince Andrew to give me my presents tonight.  He kept telling me no, but then he left the burner on the stove on and melted my silicone colander into one of my pots.  He felt pretty guilty and then told me he’d give me my presents tonight, but he salvaged both items and now I’m not sure he feels guilty enough to give in to me.   Oh well it’ll only be 2 days if I have to wait.

Oh and in other March Birthday News today is Dori’s birthday so stop by and wish her a great birthday!

Longest Week EVER!

Seriously this week is so slow, work has been so hectic, and overwhelming this whole week, and I’ve been pretty stressed for reasons I don’t want to get into on here.  I’m so ready for tomorrow at 5 when the weekend begins!  This weekend should be pretty fun, tomorrow night my only plan is to go to the gym and then bum around the house.  Saturday I’m going out with friends to celebrate my birthday (which is actually Monday, I hate when my birthday falls on a week day!)  Then Sunday I have the NYC blogger brunch!  Which I am super excited about but also super nervous about.  I get terribly nervous meeting new people, so if you’re going to the blogger brunch on Sunday and I seem quiet, I’m probably just a little anxious about the whole thing. 

I also want to thank Ellie for giving me my first award!!  She’s seriously the sweetest person, and an excellent blogger!  Please check out her blog if you haven’t already.

E_award_thumbI would like to pass this award on to Sarah, she does amazing things with food, that I would never think of.  Check out her blog for some resourceful ways to use “found food”.  Her comments always make me smile, so thanks Sarah.  I’d also like to pass this award onto Dori.  Her posts always make me laugh outloud, she’s got a great sense of humor.  I’m also meeting both of these girls at the blogger brunch so can’t wait to meet the 2 of you!

So let’s get into today’s eats.

For breakfast I had some overnight oats, 1/2 a cup of oats, 1/2 a cup of skim milk, some vanilla extract, and cinnamon.  After I heated it up this morning I added pb and some granola because I was craving a crunch.

Picture 001

I’ve missed my oatmeal, it’s been about a week since I’ve had it.

The other night when I made Andrew’s lunch burrito I made an extra either for another day for him, or for me.  It was really good, but the wrap was a little soggy.

Picture 005

It contained brown rice, salsa, vegeterian refried beans, and cheddar cheese.  Yum!

Later I felt a little sluggish so I decided I needed some fruit to give me some energy, I had a gigantic orange for a snack around 3:30.

Picture 007

After work I had a bit of a tension headache so I decided to take a long hot shower, Andrew was in charge of making dinner and he made some whole wheat spaghetti with “meatballs”.  Can you tell we’re obsessed with these “meatballs”?

Picture 019

After dinner we went to his parents house again, today was his Mom’s birthday so we brought some flowers and a gift card over.   I may have snacked on some chips and salsa while we were there.  But again no picture.

Well I’m going to read and go to bed!  Hope you all have a great night, and let’s hope Friday goes fast for everyone!

Quick Post

I’m so tired so I’m just going to post my eats for today and then go to bed.  I need to get some more sleep tonight because I’ve felt really tired. 

For breakfast today I had Overnight oats.  They were good, a little soupier then I usually like but good none the less.

0310090850

This contained 1/2 a cup of oats, 1/2 a cup of skim milk, a 1/2 a banana, and some pb.

For lunch I brought a Dr. Praeger’s veggie burger and ate it on the last of my whole wheat onion rolls from Whole Foods, with some ketchup on it.

0310091202

For dinner I ate the same exact thing as yesterday a wrap with a piece of eggplant, cheese, marinara sauce ,and a side salad with romaine and mini sweet peppers.

Picture 003

Picture 009

So sorry for the lack of stellar posting. Good night!

In Like a Lion

I have so much catching up to do, but today is the perfect day.  I’m home from work because there’s 14 inches of snow outside, so much for the warm March weather that I’ve been hoping for.  But this is very true to the old saying, “March comes in like a Lion and goes out like a Lamb.”   I stayed home today with  Andrew and we’re having the perfect snowy day lots of relaxing and reading.  I couldn’t ask for a better Monday to be honest.  But I have to start with Saturday since I haven’t posted since then.

Saturday morning I had a doctors appointment, once I was done I went to my parents house and ate some of my sister’s oatmeal.  I used 1/2 a cup of oatmeal, 1 cup of 2% milk, 3/4 of a banana whipped in, cinnamon, and vanilla.  Of course I put some pb on it too.

Picture 011

I took the time to cook this on the stovetop and gosh was it good.  Look at that pb melting perfectly.  Here’s a spoon shot like Kath .

Picture 013

I ate this kind of late in the day since I had the doctors appointment, after Andrew got out of work we went to the gym, and then had to come home and get ready to go out for my Mom’s birthday dinner.  We went to Yesterdays again, same place we went on Valentine’s day.  Except I totally splurged on the meal. I paid for it later though.

First I started off with a big salad from the salad bar.

picture-022 

I had there perfect pasta salad, on a bed of greens, with carrots, onions, cauliflower, and broccoli, all with oil and vinegar for the dressing.

I also snacked on 2 rolls while I waited for my entree.  There rolls are so fresh it’s hard to resist.

Picture 024

Here’s the big splurge that had me in agony for hours after dinner.  I got baked manicotti.  I should have asked for just a little cheese on top, instead I got a ton.  And instead of being smart about it and taking some off I ate all of it.  Stupid mistake, but at least I learned my lesson and won’t be doing that again anytime soon.

Picture 026

Look at all that cheese!  You can barely see the 2 manicottis under it all. The manicotti without the cheese would have been fine, I definitely over did it on this meal.  On the way home my stomach started cramping up horribly, I was almost in tears.  We went back to my parents to have cake that we never wound up having since none of us wanted dessert.  I fell asleep there for a couple hours trying to ignore the stomach pains.  After I woke up I felt a little better but we just came home and read until we fell asleep.  Boring Saturday night, but really it was my fault I should have guessed after eating so lightly for the past 2 months that that amount of, what I’m assuming to be full fat cheese, would make me ill.  Lesson learned.

Sunday Andrew had work in the morning so I hung around the house and cleaned out the pantry and a few other odds and ends.  We also woke up to about an inch of snow which was melting quickly. For breakfast I had 2 kashi waffles with sugar free syrup on the side for dipping. 

Picture 033

About an hour before Andrew got out of work  I had some vegetarian chili, on top of brown rice, with less then an ounce of Mexican cheese.

Picture 035

This was really good and I ate about 3/4 of the bowl.  Once Andrew got out of work we headed to the gym, it was an okay day but I felt a little weak, kind of frustrating, but I pulled through.

After the gym we went to Andrew’s parents house to visit, then to Whole Foods to get some dinner, and some food since we were running low.  Good thing we did because there’s no way we’re leaving the house today, except to maybe play in the snow, clean off our cars.

I got some salad from the salad bar at Whole Foods.

picture-044 

I got some roasted peppers, and the rest was just a plain old salad, on the side I purchased some whole wheat onion rolls from the bakery and couldn’t wait to try one!

Picture 047

Soooo good!  I’m so happy I picked these up.

Then it was time for the birthday cake for my mom.  Since I never ate cake as a child, and still don’t like it, my entire family is forced to have ice cream cake on their birthdays.  Not that they mind though, really who doesn’t like Ice Cream Cake?  I don’t like chocolate ice cream though so I switch with Andrew, I get his vanilla, and he get’s my chocolate and most of my crunchies, I love the vanilla ice cream part, especially the outer layer of that frosting.  So even though this looks like I had 2 pieces it’s the the top of mine and the top of Andrews.

Picture 050

I hate that you can’t separate the flavors that well, you can see I still had to endure some chocolate ice cream. 

All last they were talking about this big storm we were getting, Andrew’s school announced they were closed last night, I had a feeling I wouldn’t be going in either.  We woke up at 5:45 and the snow was up to our front door, when we opened the screen door it skimmed the top of the snow, and there’s a step up to get to the door. We went back to bed and slept until my alarm went off.  I had a weird dream that we only got a dusting of snow and everyone at work was mad at me for calling out, when I woke up I couldn’t remember which part was true so I had to run to the window and check, once I realized we did have about 10 inches I knew it was safe for me to really call out.  Around 8:30 it started snowing again and we got close to 14 inches.  It’s bitterly cold out and I’m happy to be home safe inside instead of braving it out on the roads, I’ve heard on the  news there’s been lots of accidents today, and I’m grateful I have an understanding boss that knows I’m the biggest baby when it comes to driving in the snow.

Once we lazily rolled out of bed at 9 this morning I made scrambled eggs for Andrew and I.  I also bought vegetarian breakfast “sausage patties” last night and had my first one today.  It was different, but overall I liked it.  I also had another one of the whole wheat onion rolls with it and a nice cup of Keurig Coffee.

Picture 076

So I guess it’s time to go clean up a little outside, I’m sure there will be plenty of hot chocolate to report on later.  If you got a lot of snow today I hope you’re safe at home, if not please be careful on your way home from work later today!

One More Day

I’m so happy tomorrow is Friday!  I’m sure most of you agree.  I can’t believe there’s only 2 more days of February left, where did this month go?  A week from Saturday we set the clocks ahead which means an extra hour of daylight in the evening, which I am so ready for!  Spring is just around the corner and the idea of that has me smiling from ear to ear. 

I’ve had a hard time getting to sleep lately, I don’t know if I have more energy then I used to from the routine exercising but I used to be able to lay down and within a few minutes be fast asleep.  I’ve had more trouble lately so I want to try to get into bed a little earlier for the next few weeks in the hope I’ll be able to fall asleep earlier too.  We’ll see how that goes, but in order to do that I need to blog quickly tonight and get right into bed.

This morning I had overnight oats with 1/2 a cup oats, 1/2 a cup skim milk, cinnamon, and vanilla.  This morning I added dried cranberries and pb of course.

Picture 013

I still can’t believe how long oats will keep me satisfied.  I used to snack between breakfast and lunch now I can easily hold out for lunch time.

For lunch today I had leftover cavatelli that Andrew had made for his dinner last night. 

Picture 018

I ate this cold, I’m a big fan of cold pasta.

On the side I also had 3 mini sweet peppers.

Picture 016

Even though the package says “sweet” the red were kinda spicey, but they were still really really tasty.  I got a huge bag of these from Costco so except to see these a lot in the next week.

Around 3 I got hungry and had a banana with pb sandwiched in the middle.  The department vp came over to talk to me while I was snacking on this so I didn’t get a picture, here’s an old one I took the last time I had this snack though.

Picture 010

For dinner tonight I didn’t know what I wanted.  So I just had a few different things that sounded good.  I had a toasted ww bagel with light butter, a string cheese, and a romaine lettuce salad with light caesar dressing.

Picture 034

Picture 037

This was a weird but good dinner, it satisfied a few different cravings I was having so it hit the spot for me.

Well as I said I’m going to get into bed early tonight so I’m going to end the post here.  Hope you all have a great night, and that tomorrow goes by quickly.  Anyone have any fun plans for the weekend?

Weekend Recap

I am a bad weekend blogger.  Wish I could say it was because I was so busy with friends and having fun.  Unfortunately I didn’t do much this weekend, Friday night I crashed early and yesterday I was feeling really sick so I skipped a friends birthday dinner and night out for some time in bed.  Not a productive weekend but definitely needed.  I’m hoping that with all my rest I should feel great this week, I’m also hoping this week flies by as quickly as last week did.    It’s sad the weekend’s over but I’m ready to get this last week of February over and done with.  I can’t believe it’s almost March!  Springtime is just around the corner.  And March is my favorite month, I might be a little biased because my birthday is in March. 

So clearly I have a lot to cover since I have not written anything since Thursday.  So let’s get onto the eats.

Friday for breakfast I had a bowl of oats, I decided to finish off my canister used the 3/4 heart healthy portion.  That was really good but super filling.

Picture 002

With cranberries and PB.  So delicious!

This was seriously stick to your ribs good.  3/4 of a cup is great, but it definitely kept me full for hours.  By lunch I was barely even hungry so I just snacked on a cut up gala apple, 2 clementines, some blueberries, kashi crackers, and about 1 tablespoon of pb.

 Picture 009

I didn’t eat that z bar until about 3:30.

For dinner that night we made a stir-fry of sorts.  I used black beans, green peppers, onions, baby corn, and salsa.  It was a really yummy combo.

Picture 022

After this we headed to the gym, it felt soooooooo good to be back.  I definitely didn’t have my best workout but it was really good.  I was just happy to be back to working out.

I woke up Saturday morning and had some puffins for breakfast.

Picture 025

I ate about 3/4 of this before I was full.  After breakfast I hit up Costco with my dad, I didn’t buy much just some socks, bananas, a new scale, and some seasonings. 

For lunch later on I was craving some of that Panera LF chicken tortilla soup, so I ran out and bought some and ate it at my parents while I waited for Andrew to be done with work for the day.

I got the soup:

Picture 030

And their Classic Garden Salad:

Picture 034

I also ate a piece of the whole wheat baguette, but somehow I didn’t get a picture of it.

After Andrew got out of work we headed to the gym.  I felt like complete crap, I got horribly out of breath barely doing anything and my head was pounding we only wound up staying about 45 minutes before I finally couldn’t take it anymore.  We left and came home.  We had a birthday for a friend to go to, we were supposed to go out to dinner and then out to a bar, but I knew I just needed to stay home.  I made myself a comforting dinner, while Andrew headed out for the birthday festivities.

I had 2.5 ounces of whole wheat Angel Hair pasta, with 1/4 cup of spaghetti sauce.

Picture 035

I ate this and then moped around the house, frustrated that I was missing out, especially because a friend I rarely see was there.  I took a hot shower, took some medicine and laid down, after about 45 minutes I felt super sick and nauseous.  Unfortunately that spaghetti dinner didn’t stay down very long after that, sorry I know that’s TMI.

I fell fast asleep by 9:15 and only briefly woke up when Andrew got home later that night, other then that I slept right up until this morning.  I felt much better but didn’t have any appetite until close to 12.  I decided to have scrambled eggs with green pepper and 3 turkey sausages.

Because we ate so late in the day I didn’t wind up eating any lunch.  We went to the gym and the girl I was sad I didn’t get to see last night was actually there, after she gave me some grief for not going out last night we worked out together.  She works at the gym as a trainer (not mine though) so I did 20 minutes on the bike while I waited for her to finish up, then she showed me some new arm exercises to do.  She worked me out hard we were both dripping sweat by the end.  Then we did a quick 15 minutes on the elliptical.  I was so surprised by how much I did the elliptical, I’m not a fan of it, but I might have fallen in love with it today.  I was drenched in sweat when we left.

After the gym we ran to the food store to pick up a few items for the week, sorry I didn’t take any pictures of our purchases.  We made tacos tonight with lean ground beef.

I had 2 tacos on a whole wheat toritilla with lettuce, green peppers, salsa, and mexican blend cheese.

Well I’m off to finish my taxes.  Keep your fingers crossed for a big return!

I’m back!

But not quite better then ever.  I’m still feeling extremely under the weather, but your kind comments have left me smiling so thank you!  This cold is going away pretty quickly and I feel much better, but still extremely fatigued.  I feel so lazy because I haven’t gone to the gym since Sunday and won’t be going again tonight, I was going to go but upon returning home today and walking up the 3 flights of stairs to the apartment I was completely out of breath and was ready for a nap, not exactly prime time for workouts.  I know I’m listening to my body and giving it the rest I need but I feel so worthless.  Not a good feeling.

So I have a lot to post since I didn’t last night.

My appetite was next to non-existent yesterday.  For breakfast I had a peach Chobani and a glass of Emergen-C.  I swear this is what’s making me feel better much faster.

Lunch was crap.  I wasn’t hungry so I had something I knew I needed healthy fat, fiber, and protein.  So I had a 1/2 a ww bagel with pb, and clementine for some extra vitamin C.Picture 003

Doesn’t get more bland huh?

I barely even finished the 1/2 a bagel.

I left work yesterday at 3:30 I just felt like I needed to go home and sleep.  So once I got home I laid on the couch watched some On- Demand Bridezillas and Platinum Weddings, (hint hint Andrew!)  and eventually crawled into bed and fell asleep, until after 9.  Once Andrew came home I woke up zombie walked into the kitchen made another cup of emergen-c and forced myself to eat something.  Nothing was appealing so I had a clif bar.

Those are my sheets in the background I couldn’t stay out of bed long enough to even eat.  I guzzled some Night time cough medicine and was back asleep by 10:30.  I slept right through the night and when my alarm went off this morning I whined about going to work, but Andrew FORCED suggested that I try to make it through the day.

Breakfast this morning was another round of Overnight oats.  Love!

I ate almost all of this.

I needed some fresh veggies so I actually went left the office and got lunch.

I went to the same place I went to my second day of blogging, Green Leafs.  My salad included romaine, balsamic vinaigrette, chicken, fresh mozz balls, onions, and cucs.

I ate almost all of it.  This was all that was left:

It’s a big hefty salad though.

Since my appetite has been so off this held me over until dinner.  I was craving pizza, real pizzeria pizza.  So Andrew took me to a local pizza place and for the first time this year I had a pizza that I didn’t make myself.

A slice of plain

And a slice of white.

Super thin crust, super delicious.  Oh pizza I certainly have missed you.

Here’s how bored I was tonight.  Sorry Wolfgang.  I may be deliriously sick, you decide.

Hope you all have a great night!  I can’t believe it’s almost Thursday, this week is flying on by!  Thanks again for your sweet comments yesterday and today!
