Beach or Bust!

I couldn’t be any happier right now, I’m almost all packed and ready to go! I have 4 hours until we’re on the road and on our way to the beach.  I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging much this week, we’ve had to do a lot of things to prepare, Wednesday we had to go bathing suit shopping (I got 2 new bathing suits that will hopefully fit me throughout the summer because damn they were expensive), then we went to Panera for dinner (I forgot my camera but I do have pictures of the leftovers I had for lunch yesterday) and then my friend Laura came over so I could see her before we left and so she could show me some samples of invitations she got for her wedding next year.  After she left I cleaned the apartment a little and then went right to sleep.

I do have my eats from yesterday to share, unfortunately they are pretty boring because we seriously have NOTHING left in the fridge to eat.

For breakfast I grabbed a Luna bar.

Picture 001

Perfect as always.

Work was a little hectic yesterday because I had a lot of things to finish before my vacation started.  When lunch time rolled around I realized how hungry I was and was more then happy to eat my left overs from Panera.  I had decided to skip the “you pick two” and get a whole sandwich.  I got the Chipotle Chicken sandwich which I customized without the tomatoes (I hate tomatoes) I got it on regular french bread, and I didn’t get the chipotle mayo spread.  So even though it says it should be about 900 calories I’m guessing with it was less and I did spread it out over 2 meals so I don’t feel like it was that bad.  It was definitely delicious if nothing else.

Picture 004

Once I got out of work I had a quick errand to run, then met Andrew at my mom’s house so he could leave his car in their driveway instead of on the street by our apartment.  Then we ran to whole foods to stock up on some bars for the trip. On our way home from running errands I realized how hungry I was, I was craving pizza so I I had 2 pieces at our local pizzeria.  I got sausage, peppers, and onions.

Picture 005

After dinner I went to my friend Jessica’s to drop off a check I owed her and to see her before we left, we only stayed for about 1/2 an hour but by the time we got home it was after 8!  Andrew still had to pack and I wanted to load up the car before bed.    Andrew couldn’t get off work today so I drove him into work this morning and will be picking him up and leaving right from their for the long road trip.  After I got home from dropping him off I called my mom to talk to her, I’m so excited to be with my family again tonight, while on the phone I saw a gigantic hornet/bee/wasp (whatever) on the window in the kitchen.

Picture 006

It’s hard to get an idea of how big this thing really is but it’s about the size (both width and length of my thumb).  I am convinced it is a killer bee of some kind (are those even still around?)  I grabbed a can of hornet spray from under the sink but there was barely anything left in it since I have to spray every bug I see with it, I called everyone of my friend’s to see if their boyfriends were around, I even contemplated calling the landlord to come up and take care of the situation.  I was afraid I would hit the bee not kill it and then it would come after me.  Then I came up with a brilliant plan to kill the bee!

Picture 008

I got a glue trap that we had, sprayed a fake flower with some perfume and placed it on the glue trap hoping to entice the bee to step on it.  I do not know if this worked because I’ve been hiding out ever since if it doesn’t work soon I will be picking a real flower and placing it on the trap, if that doesn’t work I’m going to just leave for the week and hope it dies on it’s own. 

Well I’m off to run the last of the errands, we will be on the road at 3 and won’t be arriving until very late since we have at least an 8 hour drive.  I will be blogging throughout the week (hopefully poolside) and keep your eyes open for a very exciting give-away sometime early in the week!

Half Way There

One good thing about these short weeks is that I’m already half way through the week.  The past 2 Fridays Andrew has been on spring break, and so was my sister, and my dad was off as well.  It didn’t feel like I had weird days off because so did everyone else, this will be my first Friday watching Andrew wake up and go to school while I get to stay home.  That’s definitely going to be weird!  Luckily I have plans with a friend to go walking on the trail on Friday as well as some chores I would like to get done.  Until June, I’m booked solid for Saturday’s and Sunday’s so that extra day off is going to be like a God send for me.  It’s so nice to have these positive thoughts instead of worrying about money and getting stressed out over my shorter work weeks.

I was running low on things to bring to work for breakfast and lunch today so I had to improvise a little.  I brought an Arnold Sandwich Thin and smeared some pb on it when I got to work.  Such a simple breakfast that does wonders at keeping me satisfied.

Picture 002

At lunch time I ran out to get a salad, once again I went to Green Leaf’s a create your own salad place in the outlet mall across the street.  I walked around the mall for my 15 minutes of Movement, and then ordered my salad.

Picture 003

It contained, grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, cucs, cheddar cheese, and red onions.  With some Balsamic dressing on the side.

Picture 006

I also grabbed one of their multi grain rolls for on the side.

Picture 004

I didn’t even come close to finishing that salad and plan on having the rest tomorrow for lunch,

After lunch I was panicking because I thought I had lost something super important.  I looked everywhere for it, and questions multiple people who might have it to sign off.  No one seemed to know where it could be.  I emailed a friend about how upset and nervous I was that I had lost it, she told me to say a prayer to St. Anthony so I did.  Within minutes of saying the prayer one of my co-workers IMed me to tell me he did in fact have it on his desk and returned it to me.  What a relief!  I was so happy and really think St. Anthony brought it back to me. 

When I bought my lunch today I splurged on a bag of my favorite SunChips.

Picture 007 

Have any of you tried these?  Believe me when I tell you that they are better then the Harvest Cheddar.  They are a little bit spicy and so flavorful, do yourself a favor next time your out and pick up a bag of these.

Picture 008

After work I had to go to the store and pick up some essentials for the rest of the week.  Chobani has come back into my life and I’m already excited for my breakfast tomorrow.

When I got home I decided I wanted something super quick.  I cut up 4 mini sweet peppers and some onion and sautéed them until soft.  I put them on a tortilla with some cheese, added some spices and topped it with another tortilla.  After about 10 minutes I had a delicious quesadilla.

Picture 011

The 2 tortillas proved to be too filling and I ate a little less then 3/4’s of it. 

Well I’m waiting for my sweetie to get home with some aloe vera.  I have some sun burn on my back and it’s getting really itchy!

I hope you all have a fabulous night and a great Wednesday!

Fun In The Sun

Yesterday it got up to 79 degrees, I spent almost the whole day outside enjoying the warm weather, I didn’t blog because I tried to just spend the day outside and we wound up going out last night with some friends and I didn’t get home until late.  So I have a lot to catch up on.

After I posted on Friday Andrew and I took a ride to a school for Andrew to drop off his resume.  Once we returned we hung out on the deck for a little and then we started to bbq up some turkey burgers.

I put some mozzarella cheese on mine.

Picture 026

It was cooked perfectly.  It was 4 ounces of very lean ground turkey, I of course had a pickle and ketchup on it.  On the side I also had some corn.

Picture 029

I opened a bag of pop chips but only had like 4 of them because by the time I finished my burger and my 2 helpings of corn I was no longer hungry, they were put away for another day.Picture 030

I had some great company while eating.

Picture 033

After dinner some of our friends came over to hang out on the deck, unfortunately once the sun went down the wind picked up and it got pretty chilly.  It was a pretty fun night for the most part.

We woke up nice and early Saturday morning because Andrew had to go to work at the pharmacy.  I made a smoothie and enjoyed it out in the sun with the Self Magazine I got last week and finally got around to reading.

Picture 055

Picture 061

This smoothie contained:

  • skim milk
  • 1 banana
  • blueberries
  • peach slices
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 1/2 a cup of oats

I had a chiropractors appointment which I went to with my mom and then came home around 1 and decided to eat one of the  leftover turkey burgers from the night before.  The sun was so bright that I couldn’t see the screen on my camera so I kinda hoped for the best when snapping pictures.

Picture 065

Obviously I didn’t get a good one because of my shadow.

On the side I had 4 sweet peppers.

Picture 064

Picture 062

After spending the rest of the day outside we decided to go out to dinner to Chili’s.  We ordered the tostatdo chips and salsa to start, and between the 2 of us we didn’t even finish them.  (And I forgot to take a picture so here’s a picture from the Chili’s website).

starters_tostadachips_tiltright

For my dinner I ordered off the guiltless grill menu.  I got a grilled chicken buffalo sandwich without the ranch dressing, and with steamed veggies on the side.

Picture 070

Picture 071

It was delicious and the website has it listed at 386 calories but that includes the ranch so I’m guessing it was less then that.  In the background you can see Andrew’s fries, I took about 5 of them.

Dinner was great but the chips were so salty I felt dehydrated all night!

After dinner we went bowling ( I didn’t bowl but I went with everyone) and then we went to a little cafe that sells gelato, Andrew got a mint chocolate chip gelato which I gladly took a small spoonful of it was so good.

This morning for breakfast I cooked up some whole wheat pancakes, and used a little syrup on them.

Picture 076

Picture 077

Now we’re off to run some errands and then go to my parents house to spend some time with them.  I’ll be back after dinner, tonight is warm but overcast and a little windy so we’ll still be spending some time outdoors just not in shorts like we were the past couple days!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday see you after dinner!

70 Degrees and Loving It!

I am 10,000X happier then I’ve been in so long!  I can’t tell you just how much I love the warm weather better!

I’m excited to get back out there and enjoy the day so quick 2 day recap!

Yesterday for breakfast I made the most beautiful smoothie, it was so purple!

Picture 009

This smoothie contained:

  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • blueberries
  • peaches
  • a banana
  • skim milk

I took 2 or 3 sips then put it in a to-go cup for work.  I got ready for work and left.  And forgot the damn smoothie!  So remember what this smoothie looks like.

So when I got to work I snacked on 3 prunes, while pouting about my forgotten smoothie.

Picture 012

Lunch time couldn’t come fast enough, I was holding off until a reasonable hour for lunch and when I decided to dig in, it was gone in 2 minutes flat.

Picture 013

Inside this WW wrap is pb and raspberry preserves.  Yum yum yum.

Around 3 my stomach started growling so I had 4 sweet peppers:

Picture 015

And a string cheese:

Picture 014

Yum yum yum.

Andrew had the week off for spring break from school and he made me the best dinner again!  What a sweet guy.  Crockpot Chicken Parm!  So excited to eat that again!  But first I forced us to go for a walk along the trail, I burned about 250 calories because I was in a hurry to get back and eat some chicken parm.

He used chicken tenders so I had 3 and a serving of ww penne.

Picture 016

Picture 017

I might have licked the plate.

After dinner we went to pick up my little sister for our sleep over.  She came over and we passed out around midnight.

I woke up at 6 this morning and went for a little walk/jog around the neighborhood by myself.  I burned 217 calories.

Then came home and drank my smoothie (that Andrew so kindly put in the fridge for me yesterday after I forgot it.)  It wasn’t nearly as pretty today but still tasted awesome.

Picture 022

After the 2 lazy bones in the house woke up we hung around the house and watched tv.  My mom called and asked us if we’d like to go out to breakfast, I actually was hungry again so we went to our favorite breakfast plate in the junction.  I’m predictable and had a scramble with potato, pepper, onion and egg, with dry ww toast on the side.

Picture 024

I also stole some of my sister’s home fries because she doesn’t like them.  If it looks like a huge portion it is definitely decent but I love that they use smaller plates there then a standard restaurant, I hate when they have those huuuuge plates and fill them up with food.  These are just the right size.

After breakfast Andrew and I went for a walk on the trail together.  We walked for over an hour and I burned 466 calories.  Which puts me at 683 for the day, not bad for just walking and jogging.

When we got to almost the end of the trail I saw a bunch of people up ahead with orange jumpsuits on.  CHAIN GANG!  The back of their jumpsuits said NJDOC (NJ department of corrections)  there was a cop with them but there were at least 20 of them.  Nothing too weird right?  There was a cop so we should have felt safe.  But about 1/2 of the prisoners had freaking CHAINSAWS!  For real?  One Cop with a gun and 10 prisoners waving Chain Saws around?  I whispered to Andrew “turn around real slowly, and let’s get the hell out of here”.  Only a little while later when we passed 2 more cops walking along the front of the trail,  did we realize Andrew had an orange sweat shirt on I was convinced Andrew was going to get shot at because the cops would think he was a member of the Chain Gang.  I walked a good 10 paces behind him just in case.  I also thought the cops at the front of the trail were there because a prisoner had escaped and we were going to be part of a hostage situation.  I have a very active imagination obviously.  I also told Andrew that it was the “closest I’ve ever been to being murdered.” He told me that I was no where near being murdered but prisoners with Chain Saws is never a good combination.

Weekend Wrap Up

What a fun weekend I had!  If every weekend had weather this nice, and as many good times I would be a very happy and lucky lady.  I got to spend a lot of time with my grandparents which is why I didn’t blog yesterday also got to spend a few more hours with them this morning before they left to go back to the Poconos.  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend as well!

After such a fun weekend I’m exhausted so I’m going to try to make this a quick post.

Yesterday I was running late because we had a small problem with the faucet in the bathroom not turning off that I was trying to take care of.  I grabbed a clif bar as I was running out of the house for my Doctors appointment.

Picture 002

Delicious as usual.

After the doctor’s and visiting the assisted living with my grandparents I got a smoothie.

Picture 056

I got one with Mango, pineapple, non-fat yogurt, and protein powder.  Luckily there was no allergic reaction to it yesterday and it was delicious.

For dinner we ate at my parents we ordered chinese food and I decided to get vegeterian chow mein.  It was disgusting.

Picture 003

I wound up eating some broccoli with garlic sauce mostly, but didn’t eat much of that either.  Disappointing.

Later after leaving my parents house we came home to the apartment and met our friend Mike here to hang out.  We spent the night looking up houses in Florida, watching YouTube videos, and talking.  Have I mentioned I want to move somewhere warmer?  I know the weather is getting nice but I just realize how much the winters affect my mood and I need to get to somewhere warm. 

Picture 005

My wine was in a very special Secret Service glass from my Aunt Suzy for Christmas last year.  It was a raspberry wine and it was so good.  I definitely drank more then this amount, a lot more.  After the week I had, I decided to relax a little and enjoy the wine though. 

Mike was hungry so I offered some Popchips to him as long as he would allow me to put his pictures trying them on the blog.

Here’s Mike admiring the bag:

Picture 008

Now here’s Mike tasting it:

Picture 009

But did he like it?

Picture 010

Thumbs up!  He tried the orginal and I had a few as well, we wound up dipping them in salsa which was really good.

See Andrew in the background carrying a bowl?  He so lovingly shared his leftovers from Friday night’s dinner with me.  I gladly ate up some of his Rigatoni Pomadora, I was starving since dinner was a such a mess earlier on.  I didn’t take a picture of the rigatoni I completely forgot (too much wine).  I really didn’t have that much, but for the 13 dollar dinner to get 3 meals out of it was really good.

This morning I got up and got dressed to make it back to my parents to say goodbye to my grandparents they wound up sticking around for a few hours so I actually got to spend a good amount of time with them.  I had a cinnamon raisin bagel toasted with a little butter.

Sorry for the crappy cellphone picture.

After my grandparents left Andrew and I went to the gym, it was such a nice day we decided to just do some weights there and take advantage of the nice weather and do our cardio outside.  While doing the weights I burned 225 calories in the half hour we were there.  Then we headed back towards the apartment, my dad had told us they built a new trail in our town that went right along the water.  We decided to give that a try.  I wish I had my camera with me because it was a beautiful walk.  We walked and jogged for an hour, and wound up burning 434 calories, so 659 total with our 2 workouts.

After our walk we  hung out in the marina and walked around a little more then decided to go out for lunch at a little restaurant in the marina.  I got a potato pepper onion and egg sandwich on whole wheat toast.  I wound up deconstructing the sandwich and eating it just like normal scrambled eggs and eating the toast on the side.

0405091549

On the side you can also see the pickle Andrew so kindly gave to me from his burger.  1 more week until I can eat meat again and until today I haven’t really craved much red meat, chicken yes, red meat not usually.  His burger just looked so damn good I wanted it so badly!  I’ll definitely be having a burger sometime soon after next Sunday when Lent is over!

For dinner we decided to try spaghetti squash for the first time, with meatless meatballs on the side.  I’m so glad we tried the spaghetti squash it was delicious and we have so much left over.

Picture 024

Picture 022

I’ll definitely make this again!

Well before I head off to dreamland don’t forget tomorrow Meghann is having her 2nd Blogger bake sale!  I’ll be donating a loaf of this PB Banana bread with chocolate chips, I have modified the original recipe a little and am so excited to be able to donate this for her bake sale!  If you don’t know, Meghann is training to run the Rock n Roll San Diego Marathon in an effort to raise $3900 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. What an inspiration this girl is!   Tomorrow at 11am the bake sale begins, for all the rules and logistics visit her site here.

Good night everyone and have a great Monday!

Suds and Sawdust

This weekend is like a blur it went by so quickly!  I can’t believe it’s Sunday night and although it’s not even 9 yet, I’m so ready for bed.    I had a really fun weekend I just wish it was a little longer.

So after I blogged yesterday I hung out and did some dishes while talking on the phone.  Around 2 I ate lunch.  I had my leftover pizza.  I took pictures of it yesterday but deleted them by mistake so this is my picture from Friday night.

Picture 017

After lunch and Andrew returned from work we hit up the gym, my run sucked yesterday because I got an awful cramp.  I did as much as could but wound up only running for around 20 minutes and then hopped on the bike for a little while, the cramp went away eventually and then I did some arm exercises.

After the gym we went to target and shopped around a little, then we went to dinner at SaladWorks.  I got the caprese Panini.

0314091820 

It was on sourdough bread and it seriously delicious!

After dinner we came home and got ready to go the bar.  It was actually a lot of fun.  When you pull up it just looks like a house, there’s a sign out front though, that’s the only way you’d know it was a bar.

Picture 007

It was really tiny but it was pretty nice.  There was a shuffleboard table, which our group used most of the night.  I suppose this is the sawdust they are referring to on the sign.

Picture 004

And here’s a picture of me and the birthday girl.  Since our birthdays are so close we decided that next year Andrew and her boyfriend need to throw us a big surprise party with Giraffes (my favorite animal) and donkeys (her favorite animal)  they did not seem excited about our ideas at all.

Picture 002

I stuck to water once again and got home at a pretty decent time.  I had some trouble falling asleep though and it was so cloudy this morning I wound up sleeping until almost 9:30!  And even then I was barely awake.  For breakfast I wanted another smoothie so I made the exact same one as yesterday.

Picture 013

Sorry for the crappy picture, my camera has been acting up lately.

We had some errands to run so after this we went out.  I did wind up getting a mani pedi as a few of you suggested as a way to relax!  With my friend Jessica,  it was great because we rarely hang out just the 2 of us so it was great getting to sit and talk with her!  We also ran to my parents house to visit for a couple hours.  Then we needed to do some food shopping I seriously had no veggies left in the house.  Once we got home from food shopping I snacked on a piece of pb chocolate banana bread with some more pb smeared on top.

Picture 021

For dinner I made a burrito with vegetarian refried beans, brown rice, salsa, and Mexican cheese blend, all on a ww tortilla.

Picture 027

While this was heating up in the oven, I snacked on a pickle, while chopping up some veggies for a salad.

Picture 026

I could seriously eat these pickles everyday they are my definite favorite.

Here’s my burrito all rolled up and my side salad.

Picture 031

Picture 039

I ate most of the burrito and Andrew helped me finish it off, and I ate most of the salad as well and it was gigantic!

I’m going to finish off my relaxing weekend with a little reading in bed.  I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, enjoy the rest of your Sunday night.

My First Time…

Get your mind out of the gutter!  Today I did something I’ve never done before,  I baked!  Sure I’ve made some slice and bake cookies, but I really have never baked anything.  I don’t like cake, I don’t like sweets in general, really no reason for me to bake.  But I found a recipe I really wanted to try and had some ingredients I needed to use up so I found a recipe and gave it a try.  Success!  But more on that in a second, let’s get to my other eats for the day.

For breakfast this morning I decided to try a Cherry Fage 2% sample I recieved.  Holy crap you guys, this was great, reminded me of a cheesecake.  So yummy!

Picture 001

I can’t wait to look for these in the store because it was seriously yummy, although I typically prefer 0% yogurt, this is something I would love to indulge in.  After I snapped this shot I mixed in some granola, took it to a whole other level.

For lunch I had a big romaine salad.

Picture 003

With a light caesar dressing.  On the side I also had 4 mini sweet peppers.

Picture 004

I also had 8 kashi crackers with pb.

Picture 008

This lunch was super filling and oh so good.

After work I had to go the chiropractor and then on my way home I snacked on some grapes.  Andrew took the pictures of the grapes for me since I was driving, can you tell I couldn’t wait for him to take the pictures before I had to start stuffing my face with them.

Picture 014

When I came home I decided to make an omelet.  I used 2 eggs, less then an ounce of mozz cheese, 2 peppers, and some onion. 

Picture 020

Andrew decided to make potato pancakes to go with his dinner and made me a little guy.

Picture 021

I think I’ll keep him around, this was really delicious.

I also had another one of those ww onion rolls I picked up at Whole Foods last week.

Picture 023

So now onto my first baking project.  I used a recipe from the site Vegetarian Times, I made their Peanut Butter Banana Bread With Chocolate Chips.  The thing I changed from their recipe was I used smooth pb as that’s all I had instead of the crunchy the suggest.  It was a super easy recipe, and it came out perfectly.  I had no idea what I was doing and was pleasantly surprised with the outcome.

Here’s the bread:

Picture 037

And of course I had to sample it immediately.

Picture 040

I cut a small slice and split it with Andrew.  Wow, wow, wow, this was amazing.  Andrew said after eating his half.  “This is delicious, we have to make more, and you have to look up more recipes on that site because this is f***ing amazing.”  Nice mouth huh?  I kid, I’m much worse then him, but I censor myself as to not offend all you lovely ladies.

Anyway the recipe is a hit and I’ll be making more bread over the weekend.  You all are a bad influence, I caught the baking buck from you!  Well I’m off to read and then go to sleep, g’nite bloggies!

Braving the Snow

My gameplan was to not leave the house today, besides to clean off the cars.  I was content with staying inside all day reading, commenting, and relaxing.  But of course it didn’t go that way.  But more on that in a couple minutes.

After I finished posting we went out and cleaned off our cars and dug them out, with a little help from our township, they were coming around on tractors digging people’s cars out and plowing the driveways.  Pretty nice for us, but it was still a ton of work.  It took us 2 hours to get everything cleaned off.  I tried to take some pictures but the now just isn’t as pretty as last time, I think because it was so dark and cloudy out all day.

Picture 002 Picture 006

 

Picture 008 Picture 055

 

Picture 057

Picture 061

Picture 062 Picture 064

Once we came back in I made some hot chocolate and some lunch.  I had a peanut butter and raspberry preserve on a whole wheat wrap.

Picture 016

I also had some grapes.

Picture 014

I also tried a new treat, which I absolutely loved.  I had to get it when I saw it at Whole Foods yesterday.  Just look at the name.Picture 012

Danielle Crispy Fruit Chips.  I’m pretty sure it’s a rule if you’re name is on something you have to try it.  I’m so glad I did give it a try these were delicious!

Picture 015

They have a bunch of different flavors, but I went for my favorite fruit.  I highly highly recommend them, they’re a little pricey at 4 dollars a bag but really good, a great treat.

All together with my hot chocolate.

Picture 019

After lunch I logged on my computer and tried to catch up on some blogs and do some commenting, when Andrew came in to tell me our hot water heater is leaking.  Our landlord came up and told us he had to turn the water off, so we won’t have hot water until at least sometime tomorrow if he can get someone here to replace it.  So I had to run to my parents house to take a shower so that I could go in to work tomorrow.  What is typically at 10 minute drive took us over 1/2 an hour.  The roads here are a mess!  Ice and snow everywhere still.  I’m so nervous to go into work tomorrow, Andrew has a delayed opening and is working his other job in the evening so I can’t go with him, because I’d go in 2 hours late and have to leave 2 hours early.  I’m going to have to suck it up and get there somehow.  I already have anxiety thinking about my commute tomorrow morning.

Before we went to my parents though I through together a super quick dinner.   I’ve seen this brand before on other people’s blogs and decided to give it a try.

Picture 028

I followed the directions to cook, then added steamed broccoli and mini sweet peppers.  I ate a serving which is one third of the box.  It was really very good, and I’ll definitely be branching out and trying other things the brand has to offer, and buying this one again.

Picture 024

Well I’m going to try to relax for a little while before I get into bed.  I’m letting myself get to worked up about work tomorrow, I loaned someone else I work with my laptop on Friday so I don’t even have the option of working from home.  Okay I’m sorry, I’m being a major Debbie Downer right now, I’m sure some/most of you had to get to work today in all this snow, sorry to be complaining.  Good night everyone!  I promise to be in a better mood tomorrow!

Friday Night Out

I am so happy the weekend is here!  Today went by faster then I imagined it would.  I had training today for 8 hours for our new design/drafting software.  It was really interesting, and the instructor was great so the day was over in the blink of an eye.  Now I’m just doing a quick post before we leave to go to a bar to meet a couple of friends.  I’m not going to drink when I go out tonight but I am enjoying a little cocktail right now.

Yesterday I recieved a package of POM Wonderful Pomegranate  juice, like I’ve seen so many other people talk about on their blogs.  I was so excited when I came home to a box on the steps.  I’ve been dying to try this juice.

Picture 026

Picture 033 

Thanks Diana for giving me the opportunity to give these a try. 

I am currently drinking some of the juice with a small amount of vodka. It is so delicous!  Great cocktail.  After I made my cocktail I took a sip of the juice straight and although many bloggers said it was to tart for them to drink alone I thought it was really good, and can’t wait to drink some more plain.

Picture 022

But obviously I am getting ahead of myself so let’s rewind back to this morning.  I knew I was going to be starting the training almost the second I got into work so since Andrew and I were able to commute today I took the car ride as a chance to eat my breakfast.

My granola was at work so I just ate this plain.  I loved it, but it was more of a snack then a meal, and I was pretty hungry mid morning.

We had lunch provided for us today and I took advantage of the pizza.  Pizza 2 times in 2 weeks?  Who am I to say no?  So I took a slice of plain.

Mmmmm.  That was a good slice of pizza.

Dinner tonight I made a veggie quesadilla.  Andrew wanted me to roast some potatoes like I did the other night so he could have them with eggs, I took some of the roasted potatoes, and I also roasted 2 peppers, and some onion, and put them all on a tortilla wrap with some cheese.  This is before I put the other tortilla on top.

I popped this in the oven for about 10 minutes at 400* and enjoyed a yummy quesadilla with some salsa.

  So good!  Well I better finish getting ready to go out!  Hope you all have a great Friday night.

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.

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.

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

On the side I also had 3 mini sweet peppers.

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.

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.

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?
