Sweet Summer Cravings

I am feeling so much better today!  It’s amazing what a difference 24 hours can make.  I ate all my meals today and felt more like myself again.  I’m a pretty easy person to get along with but I can get pretty ugly when I’m mad.  I’m just happy that it’s all over and we’ll see what happens from here on out.  Once again I got some great advice and support from you gals!  You are the best!

I can’t tell you how happy I am that tomorrow is Thursday!  As usual I have off on Friday and then have the next week off!  After all the stress from yesterday I’m ready to have some relaxing fun times with my 2 best girlfriends and their boyfriends on the camping trip this weekend.  I just hope tomorrow goes by quickly, it kinda feels like the last day of school or something which is stupid because it’s only 10 days off not a whole summer.

So we need to do some serious food shopping, we don’t even have the staples of milk, bread, or eggs, but it seems stupid to do it before the we go away for the weekend.  So I was kind of scrounging in the kitchen for meals.  Once again I totally forgot my camera, I used my Blackberry though while I was at work, not the best pictures, sorry!

For breakfast I had a chocolate chip clif z bar with pb and then an orange on the side.

Oranges are so good right now, I can’t get over how juicy and delicious the last few I ate have been.

Lunch was exactly what I said it would be last night.  Leftover Chicken parm.  I meant to bring a side salad but forgot this morning.  So I guess the tomato sauce is going to have to count as my vegetable for lunch.

IMG00032

I definitely made up for my lack of veggies with dinner though, ever since I mixed the rice pilaf with broccoli and green beans last week I’ve been wanting it again.  It’s just way too good.

Picture 119

Just to prove there is rice under there, here’s a shot with some peaking out.

Picture 120

I definitely went back for the last spoonful of rice with another piece of broccoli and a whole mess of green beans.  Such a simple meal but it’s so darn good,  I can not get enough.

After dinner Andrew and I decided we wanted dessert.  So unlike us!  We decided to go to a local Italian Ice place which also serves Ice Cream and Cream Ices.  I got a small pb cookie dough cream ice.

Picture 122

Picture 124

So delicious, I’m going to pretend it’s summer even if it doesn’t feel like it at all!

Well I’m off to start packing things up for the weekend.  Tomorrow night Michelle, Jessica, and I are going shopping for the camping food, anyone have any suggestions of healthy foods to eat while out in the woods?

Soft and Squishy

Those are pretty much the only things I can eat, anything that gives any resistance when chewing makes my jaw scream in pain from the ear infection.  Although almost everything I had tasted better it seems fruit and veggies are the major offenders in the taste category.  Wonderful I’m craving a salad but the crunch factor and the taste factor have kept me away.

For breakfast today I stuck with another soft bar.

Picture 027

So good, and I could actually taste it, of course the flavor was not as strong as it normally would be but it was still better then no taste at all.

For lunch I had some pb on an Arnold Sandwich Thin and an orange.  The orange tasted gross and I could barely taste the pb, I hope this infection clears up soon.

Picture 028

For dinner I didn’t know I wanted, I really need to go food shopping but don’t want to waste money on fresh produce when I know I’m going to be reluctant to eat it.  I’m planning on going Friday no matter what because I can’t go this long with out a nice big summer salad.  We decided to go to a local restaurant where they served breakfast so I could enjoy the french toast.

Picture 029

Nice and soft, it didn’t hurt at all to eat and I swear I could taste some cinnamon.  I also got 3 pieces of bacon on the side and since bacon is such a strong flavor I could totally taste it, again not as strong as if I was completely healthy but better then most things.  The bacon did hurt to chew a little,  because of my ears but it wasn’t too bad. 

After that we went to Andrew’s parents house to visit, and the to Petsmart to pick up some things for Geoffrey.  I’ll take some pictures tomorrow of his new home because we just finished setting it up.

Well tomorrow is my Friday already!  I love 3 day weeks!  Have a great night everyone!

Too Much Fun?

Wow I really disappeared huh?

First of all your comments were all so sweet, thanks for all the congratulatory comments on our engagement!  I was so excited to share that news with you guys and your comments all made me smile from ear to ear. 

I enjoyed the last day of vacation on Saturday and then Sunday we were in the car alllll day I took pictures of my eats but really don’t feel like recapping 4 days worth of food.  Sunday after 8 hours in the car we were exhausted, we stopped by Andrew’s aunts house to see his family.  They were all so happy for us, his family is fabulous and I’m very lucky to feel loved and welcomed by them.

Once we returned from his Aunt’s house we unpacked a little and then crawled into bed I was passed out shortly after 9, driving (for 3 hours this time!) and sitting in the car was so draining.  Unfortunately I woke up at 3 in the morning with the worst pain in both my ears and my throat was completely swollen.  I had a feeling I had “swimmer’s ear”.  I was thisclose to going to the ER but talked myself out of it by reasoning that by the time I was even treated by the ER my doctor’s office would be open and I could save myself the $275 bucks.  I fell back to sleep around 5, then woke up at 6:30 in even more pain.  My doctor’s office was closed since it was Memorial day but the walk-in clinic they are affiliated with opened at 8.  I woke Andrew up and asked him to go to the doctors with me, and we both sleepily walked out the door, I locked the apartment door behind me before I thought to check that Andrew had keys.  Well he didn’t and we were locked out I started crying instantly I just wanted to get to the doctors and start feeling better.  I called my dad and he saved the day with the extra key we gave them just last week.  Talk about good timing, considering I’ve lived here for 2 years and I just thought to give my mom an extra key while we were on vacation.  Weird.

So I get to the walk-in clinic and luckily got right in to see the doctor.  Turns out I have a double ear infection and a throat infection!  Are you kidding me?!  It hurt so badly all day but luckily today I was feeling better and was able to go to work.  I could not believe that I got so sick literally overnight but with the ear drops and antibiotics I’m already on my way to healthy. 

The only thing that really sucked was because of the pain in my ears an throat I missed out on some delicious Memorial Day BBQing.  Yesterday all I ate was a hot dog roll and an Italian Ice.  Eating just wasn’t an option but that Italian Icee was better then any of the medicine I got for some instant relief.  Everything I chewed hurt so I just gave up.  Today although I was able to eat because of the throat infection everything either doesn’t have a taste at all or tastes down right disgusting.  I forced myself to eat a little more because obviously I can’t exist solely on buns and Ice’s. 

This morning for breakfast I had something I found on vacation!

Picture 011

I should have saved it until I could actually say whether or not it tasted good, but the texture heated up was easy enough to chew and swallow.  Oh, the “that’s what she saids” I could throw into this post. 

For lunch I went with something also easy to eat.

Picture 013

This tasted absolutely disgusting to me, I knew it was just because of being sick but both these items were waging war on my tastebuds.  Ick.  Even drinking water after this tasted wretched.

Later on I was obviously still hungry so I went with another soft bar.

Picture 014

This is an example of something that had absolutely no taste to me what-so-ever.

For dinner I was trying to think of things that were soft and tasted neutral enough to not inflict the nasty taste.  I settled on eggs and cheesy toast.

Picture 026

I had 2 scrambled eggs, (another example of no taste), 1 sandwich thin with mozz cheese, and one with mexican blend.  The mozz one had no taste but the mexican blend tasted disgusting.  I took one bite and was literally chugging water to get rid of the taste.

I got some exciting mail today though!  I won a giveaway on Erin’s blog, and was lucky enough to recieve some fun products from Doctor Kracker.

Just look at all the flavors of crackers I got!

Picture 016

Picture 017

Picture 018 Picture 019

Picture 020

I can’t wait to dig into these but want to save them until I can taste them!  Thanks so much Erin for giving me the opportunity to try these products!

Well I’m off to get drops in my ears and chug some cough medicine.  Have a great night!

Oh and just a note I haven’t really been commenting I have way too many blogs to catch up on but just know I’m reading and hope to get back to my usual commenting self soon.

Big Announcement and Giveaway Winner!

I can’t believe tomorrow is my last day already, we have to leave the house early Sunday morning.   I’m nowhere near ready to leave!  This place is so amazingly relaxing.  The only good thing is next week because of Memorial Day and my Friday’s off I only have a short 3 day work week ahead of me.  Should make it a little more painless.

Yesterday was a really great day we woke up hung out by the pool a little later my dad made some delicious blueberry pancakes.

DSCF4396

Since we had a late breakfast I wound up snacking on an unpictured orange later in the day and never ate a real lunch. 

We hung out by the pool for most of the day.

DSCF4407

Yes I bought goggles to wear in the pool.  I’m a nerd like that.DSCF4419

I can’t tell you how many pictures I have of me walking, I never know about them until I upload my pictures.

Later on Andrew and I went for a bike ride down to one of the beaches.

Afterwards we came back and had dinner.  I had some leftovers.

I had the chicken leftover from the night before.

DSCF4439

The last piece of corn on the cob.

And a salad:

DSCF4440

After dinner Andrew and I took a trip to Jockey Ridge State Park.  It is the largest natural sand dune on the East Coast.  Climbing up those dunes is tough but it is the most amazing view, on one side you have the ocean and on the other you have the sound.  It’s absolutely breathtaking.  And it will now forever be a very special place to me.

People looks like ants from the top.

DSCF4447

DSCF4448

As we were walking along Andrew stopped hugged me and got down on one knee, he pulled out the most beautiful ring in the world, and I started crying instantly.  I knew it was coming but he had tricked me into thinking it wouldn’t be for a little while.  I had always said I didn’t want a lot of people around when he proposed especially strangers, and as we were walking up the dunes he kept pointing to areas where there weren’t a lot of people, and he continuously was scoping out the area around us.  I had a feeling it was coming but wasn’t sure.  I never thought I’d be one to cry I though I would be far too excited, boy was I wrong.  We left the park just as it was closing and decided to celebrate with some ice cream.

DSCF4453

  I wanted to post so badly last night but needed to call family and friends first, I’m sure you all understand.

DSCF4475

DSCF4468

DSCF4450

I would post today’s eats but it’s getting late and I’m exhausted, plus they were pretty boring.  I have a ton of leftovers from our dinner out tonight but will post them when I get around to eating them.

I used to spend summer vacation there growing up. Most of my relatives are on the East Coast. When we were younger and would tell our friends we went to the Outer Banks (I’m from Chicago) they would say “Where?”

Awesome place to visit and great place to vacation!!

 

Thanks to everyone who entered I loved reading your favorite vacation spots, I hope to travel to some of those one day!

Jenn send me an email  365healthyeats@gmail.com with your mailing info and I’ll get these out to you as soon as I get home!  Congrats!

I’m not sure I’m going to be posting tomorrow since it’s our last day so I might not be around until Monday since we’ll be in the car all day Sunday.  I hope you all have a fantastic holiday weekend!

Cranky Pants

Wasn’t it just the other day that I was talking about how I am in such a good mood when the weather is nicer.  I don’t know what my problem is today, I just felt off.  I wasn’t hungry for anything and I seem to get this way a few times a month, no appetite, terrible mood, and just a general cranky feeling.  I know with the weather being so hot and everything in bloom my sinuses have been a little crazy, and although it’s not a full blown sinus headache I definitely feel the pressure.  All I wanted to do today was come home and go to sleep. 

Today’s title should really be DON’T Eat Like Me.

For breakfast this morning I planned on having Vanilla Chobani with puffins, I knew once I got to work to not even waste the puffins because there was no way I was going to eat the whole container.

Picture 001

I was right I ate maybe half the container and then into the garbage it went.

I started to feel really fatigued so I ran out at lunch time to Dunkin Donuts to grab an iced coffee.

Picture 007

Medium iced coffee with skim milk and splenda.  While I was there I picked up a multigrain bagel lightly tossed with a tiny bit of butter.  They actually listened to me and put about the amount I would put on it.

Picture 004

I ate in my car because I was so cranky I couldn’t stand the idea of going back in to work.

Around 2:30 I realized I needed some fruit so I grabbed an orange.

Picture 008

In the middle of the orange was a baby orange!

Picture 012

Too cute, that made me smile for about 30 seconds.

After work I came right home and wallowed in my crankiness.  I didn’t even know what I wanted for dinner so I didn’t start cooking until I felt some hunger kick in.  Getting off the couch felt like such a chore.  I finally made myself put some water to boil on the stove and had my go to comfort meal of pasta.  I had whole wheat angel hair with too much sauce.

Picture 015

Picture 016

I would guess this is close to a serving size but somehow my kitchen scale melted and won’t turn on.  Of course it did why wouldn’t it? 

I’m off to drink a tall glass of water (it’s 85 in my apartment right now and we don’t have the AC’s in yet.)  And watch some more trashy tv. 

Hope you all have a great night and don’t forget tomorrow is Hump Day!  We’re getting close to the weekend.

Last Time…

This is the last Thursday night where I will have work the next day for the next 24 weeks.  Sounds kind of nuts huh?  With almost everything figured out I’m feeling much more upbeat and plan on spending a lot of time enjoying my Fridays during the summer.  2 of my friends don’t work on Fridays so we’re already planning some beach Fridays!

For breakfast this morning I had my usual Chobani (peach flavored today) with some granola.  Maybe this picture will make it a little less boring since I’ve eaten this breakfast everyday this week.

Picture 004

My boss is on vacation both today and tomorrow so I was fielding a lot of questions that would usually go to her it was a busy and draining morning so about 1/2 way through I had a gigantic orange for some energy.

 Picture 007

This orange was super juicy, just looking at this picture is making me want another one, unfortunately I think this was my last one.

For lunch today I brought a GIGANTIC salad in.  This salad contained:

  • romaine
  • spinach
  • 3 meatless meatballs
  • carrots
  • mexican cheese blend
  • and Salsa

 Picture 008

I didn’t finish all of this salad it was just too big.  But it certainly was delicious!

Picture 010

When I came home there was a package waiting for me!

Picture 014

You’ve probably seen these floating around on the blogs and I was so excited to give these a try.

I got 9 bags of chips to sample.

Picture 021

I wasn’t very hungry yet but I decided to snack on a bag of these before dinner.  I choose the sea salt & vinegar to try first.

Picture 028

Picture 043

Picture 045

Excuse my nasty nails they need to be redone so badly!

These chips are really delicious, they are not like normal potato chips the texture was more like a rice cake.  The flavor was really good though and I can’t wait to try the others.

Finally I got hungry for a meal so for dinner I had brinner once again.

I had a mozzarella and spinach omelet.

Picture 050

On the side I also had a butter piece of double fiber toast.

Picture 046

And some grapes:

Picture 048

All together:

Picture 053

This dinner definitely hit the spot!

Well I’m off to read and go to sleep, after such a busy day I am definitely exhausted!

Enjoy you’re night everyone, and hope Friday flies on by so we can enjoy the weekend!

I’m Free!

Oh my gosh I am so happy it’s Friday night! This week was killer for me, I’m just happy I have 2 days to relax now.  The only thing I have planned is to go out tonight with all my favorites and then relax tomorrow, followed by another relaxing morning and then a quick meeting with the other bridesmaids in my cousin’s wedding about her bridal shower.  Should be interesting, since I don’t get along with my aunt or my other cousin at all and only know one of the other bridesmaids.   I’m not looking forward to that and to be honest I’ll probably chicken out before I go.  But it should be a pretty nice weekend overall.

For breakfast today I went back to my old standby Chobani.  I still have some Fage left but it’s all Fage total and the fear of all that fat was enough to make me leave them at home.   I mixed in my usual granola.

Picture 001

On the side I also had 2 prunes.

Picture 002

I don’t know if my appetite still just isn’t back to normal this week, or if all the fiber from my breakfast kept me full but once again I resorted to having a bar for lunch.  I’m trying to listen to my body and I don’t want to force myself to eat a meal when I really don’t want it, it’s hard though because I know I should eat something more, but really it took almost an entire hour to eat this whole bar.  I just wasn’t in the mood to eat.

Picture 003

It was really sunny but cold so to get out of the office I hid out in my car on the phone for my lunch hour, the sun kept me nice and warm in there!

Around 3 I had another gigantic orange.  Yummmmm!

Picture 006 

After I left work I started to feel hungry!  Finally!  So I decided to make it a pizza night.  I had a Boboli whole wheat pizza crust, with pineapple and meatless “meatballs”.  Great combo, it was seriously the best homemade pizza I’ve had in a long time.

Here’s the whole pizza:

Picture 007

It was a full size but Andrew gave up pizza for lent so I still have 1/2 of it in my fridge waiting to be eaten over the weekend.

Picture 011

Since Andrew gave up pizza he had scrambled eggs and Dr. Praegers Potato Littles.  I wanted to try one so he left one for me, but he ate all the dinosaurs so I got a little guy or something.  He was tasty!

Picture 008

These are really good, and there was a strong onion flavor, but I love onions so that was fantastic.  Andrew hates onions but still liked them too.

I’m off to straighten my hair and get ready to go out, hope you all have a fun Friday night.  Part of what I want to do tomorrow for my relaxing day is spend some time catching up with some of you!  I’ve been trying to keep up with all your blogs and comment but I’ve fallen a bit behind.  So I want to spend a while tomorrow reading and commenting. 

One last thing, I randomly ran across my old roommate Erin’s blog.  Erin and I were roommates (along with 6 other girls!) my sophomore year of college, she’s a really great person, who has done things since she graduated that I could only dream about doing!  Her blog also focuses on healthy living and her and her sister Dana are both super stars when it comes to food and fitness.  So check out their blogs!

Almost There

I can’t tell you how excited I am to see this week ending!  Thanks for all your great tips on how to have a relaxing Saturday.  I think I’m going to take some of your ideas and definitely put them into action.  Should be an awesome day!

For breakfast this morning I had a piece of the banana pb and chocolate bread, it was a pretty hardy sized slice so that’s all I had for breakfast.

Picture 001

For lunch I was planning on going out but since I didn’t eat everything I brought for breakfast I decided to eat the other part for lunch.  I brought a Peach Fage Total.  The fat in this kind of freaked me out so I’m glad I saved it for my lunch.  I had that with granola.  But apparently I only took a picture of the container.

Picture 002

I also had a gigantic orange with it!

Picture 003

Picture 005

Later on I got a little hungry so I had some Danielle Pineapple Chips.

Picture 008

For dinner tonight I went out to the diner with my parents again. 

My dad and I split a greek salad.

Picture 010

That’s my dad’s fork attacking the feta.  Even with the 2 of us eating this we ate only about 1/2.

I got an omelet with 1 egg and 2 egg whites with mozzarella cheese, peppers, and onions.  On the side there were some hashbrowns that I ate as well.

Picture 012

In background you can see my 2 pieces of whole wheat toast somewhat, I guess I never got a close up of that.  This portion looks huge but it was pretty normal sized,  but I ate the entire omelet and almost all of the hashbrowns.

Well I’m off to bed the faster I get to sleep the faster Friday gets here, and the quicker the day will be over and I will be FREE!  Hope you all have a great night and a fantastic Friday!

Meal Planning Monday

Wow what a busy day!  Work was very busy, and very frustrating.  I hate being blamed for mistakes on things I’ve never worked on.  It was really no big deal but I let it get to me and it stressed me out.  But Monday is over and hopefully the rest of the week won’t be so bad. 

So let’s get into today’s eats.

Breakfast was a 1/2 a WW bagel with pb and an orange.

picture-0011 

Delicious and very filling.  I love pb in the morning it does a great job of holding me over.

Lunch was my left over Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup:

Picture 004

Doesn’t food look better in a Tupperware container? Well as an unappealing as it looks it was delicious.

I also had a salad with romaine and spinach and balsamic dressing:

Picture 005

I also had the other 1/2 of my bagel.

picture-0061 

Plain this time.

I ate all the soup, the entire bagel, and 1/2 the salad before I got bored.  I talked to my friend for the remainder of lunch which is a tradition.  We call it our “conference calls”  and on my lunch everyday I talk to her.  It’s a nice break to the day.

Later on I ate the rest of the salad and another delicious kiwi.

Picture 007

During my lunch time today while I was eating I planned out my meals for the whole week, according to what was on sale at the store.  It worked out really well.  So once I got home before heading to the gym I made some of the stuff I could prepare ahead of the time for the week.  It was definitely a good invest of time because the rest of the week is going to be easy at meal times.

As soon as I got home I needed something to eat I grabbed a string cheese.

Picture 010

While cooking I spoke to the same friend from my lunch call.  We can talk for hours a day and we usually do.

I did not know what I wanted to eat, and to be honest I had no food in the house.  So since I had the oven on I made a “baked cheese” sandwich.

I used less then an ounce of more cheese (I wish I had known this is what i was going to do for dinner I would have never had the string cheese.)  And 5 pieces of turkey pepperoni on an Arnold Sandwich Thin.  Wrapped it in tinfoil and threw it in  the oven for about 15 minutes.

Picture 011Picture 013

Here it is right out of the oven and cut in half.  I ate it right off the tinfoil standing at the counter cooking. 

Picture 014

Yum!!!!!

After my dinner and phone call I went to the gym.  It was so crowded, and my time on the treadmill was torture today.  I definitely wasn’t able to run like I was yesterday.  But I pushed through and decided to call it quits after the treadmill, no weights for me today.  Oh well, tomorrow will be better I know it!

After the gym I went over to the grocery store and did a big shopping order.  I know I haven’t taken pictures of my groceries since the first time, but I was going to the store a few times a week instead of one big shopping trip.  I’m hoping with the meals already planned out I can avoid the grocery store until next week.

Here is most of the things I got, except for a few that were specifically for Andrew, toothpaste, etc.  Let’s see how many things I forget to list.

Picture 018

  • Franks Hot Sauce
  • Perdue Carved Chicken breast
  • 4 Fage 0% yogurts
  • a dozen eggs
  • marinara sauce
  • Hummus
  • Whole Wheat Roll up’s
  • Arnold Sandwich Thins
  • And Biotin 

Biotin is a supplement I take (in addition to my multivitamin).  After my car accident back in July I got stressed out, I was terrified to drive, super anxious being in a car, and had no idea whether my car would be declared totaled (it was after a month), or if they would find any witnesses to prove that the other woman had ran the red light, because we both claimed we had the right of way.  I also was having nightmares reliving the whole experience.  People that came out of their houses after the accident told Andrew that they were certain that somebody had died by the incredible noise of the crash.  I let the stress eat away at me and after a while I realized I was losing my hair.  All from the stress!  The dermatologist recomennded that I take 3 of these tablets each night.  Here’s a little more information about Biotin:

Biotin is necessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. It plays a role in the Citric acid cycle, which is the process by which biochemical energy is generated during aerobic respiration. Biotin not only assists in various metabolic reactions, but also helps to transfer carbon dioxide. Biotin is also helpful in maintaining a steady blood sugar level. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails. Consequently, it is found in many cosmetic and health products for the hair and skin.

In addition to my hair growing back, it’s thicker and my nails grow so fast and are super strong now too.  The biotin was buy one get one free at the store so I stocked up.

Picture 021

  • Here we have green peppers
  • pistachios
  • grapes
  • blueberries
  • baby carrots
  • lentils
  • sweet potatoes
  • and in the corner are some Gala apples

Picture 025

And finally:

  • more clementines!!!!!
  • Bananas
  • And romaine

I got all this (plus other items) for 81 bucks.  Not bad. 

Well it’s bed time for me!  Good night everyone!!!

Feel The Burn

Before I talk about my first session with a personal trainer lets go over the eats.

For breakfast I switched things up a little and had a Peach Chobani, with a honey crisp apple on the side.

Picture 001

 picture-0023

I wasn’t really that hungry so this did a great job of keeping me satisfied until lunch time rolled around.

For lunch I had some of the leftover chicken tacos but in a salad, it contained, romaine, spinach, onions, chicken, and salsa for a dressing.  This was so good!

Picture 004

Picture 003 Picture 005

That little container is from duck sauce or something one night from a while ago while eating at my parents house.  I’ve saved them and I use them for dressings, pb, and mustard for dipping.  Keeps the salad from getting soggy.

With my lunch I also had some grapes.

Picture 006

For a mid-afternoon snack I had Kashi crackers and another orange.

Picture 009

Before I went to the gym I had a Carrot Cake Clif Bar.

picture-0125

So I met with my trainer and he certainly kicked my butt.  He had me doing so much that I never though I’d be able to do.  A couple minutes before the end of my session I started to get dizzy, too much for my body for the first day.  He took me outside to get some fresh air, and that certainly calmed me down.  I felt stupid until he told me that he really pushed me and I didn’t give up on any of the exercises, I did them all really well and he was impressed he never had to correct me or urge me to keep going.  So that made me feel better.  I found out I only had one more exercise to do with him though, and I wished I had pushed through but I didn’t realize how late into the session it was.  I scheduled an appointment for the same time and then attempted to do some cardio.  I didn’t last long before I started to get dizzy again so we left the gym.

After resting we went into Subway and got subs.  I didn’t think I’d be able to eat much because of the way I felt so we got them to go and we took them home to eat.

I got a veggie delight again, lettuce, onions, cucs, green bell peppers, banana peppers, and vinegar, all on the 9-grain wheat bread. 

Picture 016

I wound up eating about 2/3 of it but that was it.  Now I’m ready to go to bed!  It was an exhausting but fun day.  I can’t wait to go back to the gym tomorrow to practice all the things we did tonight.  My goal is to next week accomplish everything we did tonight, and whatever else he throws at me without feeling sick.  I’m already feeling sore and I imagine I’ll be even more so tomorrow.  But I love that feeling!

Oh be sure to visit Meghann.  She’s joined Teams In Training and is going to raise $3,900 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!  She has a website set up for donations, (which I will gladly be donating to next pay day!)  And in return she’ll be running in the Rock n Roll San Diego Marathon!  How awesome is that? If you can’t donate, all her ad revenue is going towards her goal, so stop by and wish her luck on this amazing journey!

I hope you all have a great Friday!!!  Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend?
