Danielle Runs on Dunkin’

Sorry I didn’t post yesterday or comment on all of your blogs.  But thank you for all your kind comments.  I have so much on my mind but unfortunately I can’t share it here just yet.  This weekend was a tough one, I kept busy yesterday morning but then towards of the end of the day all the stress just hit me at once and I was crying on and off for a while.  It feels weird that I can’t discuss anything on here just yet, it’s like I’m keeping a secret from my best friend or something, because so far this year I’ve shared almost everything with you guys, and I know that if I could tell you all what was going on you’d be able to offer some advice and kind words, which I really need right now. 

Since that’s really all I can say, I’ll just move on to this weekends eats.

Yesterday morning I had to go to the chiropractor with my mom so I stopped on my way to Dunkin Donuts I was craving Ice Coffee.

Picture 003

I also picked up a multigrain bagel and took it back to my mom’s house to quickly eat before we had to leave.  I used a small amount of butter on the bagel.

 Picture 004

I ate a little more then half and then we were on our to the chiropractor.  After our appointment we were on our way to check out an assisted living community for my grandparents.  It was a really nice place and after seeing the menu I was really hoping we’d get to have some lunch there.  Unfortunately we’d only get lunch if my grandparents came.  The place was really nice and I’m hoping my grandparents decide to come here because it’s right down the street from where I work and I’d definitely get to see them a lot more often, as they live in the Poconos right now, and I don’t get to see them as often as I’d like.

Once I returned to my parents I had the unfortunate chore of laundry (way too much laundry, it’s been a while oops.)  I had a piece of bread with pb since I was a little hungry.

Picture 052

On Andrew’s way home from work he stopped at Tropical Smoothie Cafe and got me the same smoothie I got a couple weeks ago.  After a few sips I started to feel really itchy, and my leg was breaking out in hives.  That’s the reaction I get to strawberries (which sucks because I love them), but the smoothie shouldn’t have strawberries in it, it didn’t taste like strawberries but I’m wondering if maybe the blender wasn’t properly cleaned between making mine and somebody else’s.  Once I stopped drinking it within 30 minutes I felt fine.  I only drank about a 1/4 of this gigantic smoothie but I figured I’d share a picture anyway.

Picture 055

Once I felt better we headed out to the gym. I was using the Lat Raise machine and an older guy just stood there watching me after one set he very rudely and loudly said “Are you going to be done with that soon?!”  Dude the gym is empty move on to another machine for a few minutes.  I told him I had more sets and he continued to stand there and watch me.  Creep.  Once I moved on I was setting the weights on another machine and someone asked me if I was using it, he said it a lot nicer so I let him use it first, but for real, the place was empty why was everyone trying to use whatever I wanted to?  Then we were in the movie theater and I was using a treadmill, as I said before my heart rate monitor transmits and displays on treadmills next to me, after running for a few minutes, the guy next to me yelled in front of everyone there, “Do you have a heart thing on or something!?”  Ugh so embarrassing I apolgizied and he said it was okay but he was only walking so of course my heart rate was higher and I guess it freaked him out a little.  What a day.

For dinner last night I had my leftover pizza from Friday.  I was literally craving it.

Picture 060

After dinner and moping around the house I got dressed and headed out to meet up with my friends, it was just what I needed to get my mind off of everything.  I drank some vodka and diet cokes, which probably helped as well, we got home around 12:30 and I read and went to bed.  I felt much better today then I did yesterday and got up and enjoyed a smoothie for breakfast.  After my incident yesterday I was craving a smoothie and was happy to finally have one.  It was a little overcast this morning but really warm so I enjoyed this out on the deck with Andrew.

Picture 061

Picture 062

This smoothie included:

  • 1 Scoop protein powder
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 a cup skim milk
  • blueberries
  • pineapples
  • 4 ounces POM juice
  • and 1tbsp pb

So yummy and just what I needed.  I love smoothies for breakfast!  After my smoothie we got dressed and ran some errands.  I was feeling extrememly tired so we stopped to get coffee and some food.  We decided to once again hit up Dunkin Donuts.  I got a medium coffee with skim milk and splenda, and a veggie flatbread sandwich.

Picture 069

Picture 067

The flatbread sandwich was just okay, a little bland, I wish I had some hot sauce for it, if I got it again I definitely would spice it up a little, it’s a good option if your out and about though.

After visiting with Andrew’s parents, sister, and grandma we headed home.  The sun had come out and it was beautiful I actually threw on some shorts and a t-shirt and sat outside on the deck reading, until a squirrel tried to join us and scared the crap out of me and sent me running back inside.  I’m a baby I know.   The sun went away as quickly as it had come out but we had already decided to have a bbq.

I had a veggie burger with a string cheese melted on top, with romaine lettuce, and pickles.

Picture 071

Picture 086

And also threw some sliced garnet yam on the grill for “chips”.

Picture 074

Picture 088

I think I liked them better grilled then baked, can’t wait to do this some more in the summer.

Now I’m going to spend some time catching up on my blog reading and then head off to bed.  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

T.G.I.F

I am so incredibly thankful that this week is over.  It’s been a tough one, it went by fast but I’m a little stressed out over something.  Unfortunately I can’t go into detail until next week.   So please excuse me, but this post is going to be a quickie.

For breakfast today I had a peach Chobani with my peak protein granola.

Picture 001

By the end of the week my desk is covered in those little post-it notes. 

My lunch today came from Andrew’s boss at the pharmacy.  They ordered sandwiches and they were gigantic so she wrapped up 1/2 and sent it home with Andrew for me.  It was eggplant parm!  Didn’t I just have that like Monday?  Well I am not one to turn down free food so I brought it into today to lunch.  This is actually only a quarter of it I did my good deed for the day and passed the other 1/2 on to one of the guys at work who forgot to bring something for lunch.  Pay it Forward.

Picture 005

Picture 003

Because I got this a few days ago the roll was a little soggy so I removed that and just ate the eggplant, it was good, and much thicker then the ones I got for dinner on my birthday.  Also less breading.  But the sauce was just okay.

For dinner I had every intention of having a veggie burger.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  I wanted a veggie burger because I wanted pickles, and what goes better with pickles then a burger.  Since I kindly gave away my last pickle on Saturday I stopped at the store to grab another jar but none of them were as bright green as I like so I sulked and grabbed a pizza crust instead.  I decided to make a “meatball” and pineapple pizza, again.

Picture 007

I used 2 “meatballs” crumbled up, and a handful of pineapples, and mozzarella cheese, on a whole wheat crust, just I needed after such a bad day.

After digesting and watching TV, Andrew and I headed out to the gym.  We were riding along talking when all of a sudden the street and traffic lights went out, we saw sparks flying, and the car in front of me slammed on their breaks. A telephone pole had fallen on a car just 2 cars in front of us.  Andrew immediately called 911 but apparently others had already done the same because they already knew about the accident we were stuck there on the highway with live wires dangling just above our car.   I was trying to look into the car to see if anyone was moving, it didn’t appear like there was.   I was freaking out, if that had happened a second later that would have been us. It was a terrifying thought, and although I’ve said today was a bad day it put it all into perspective.  We saw the driver on a stretcher leaving the scene in an ambulance but they were completely covered by a blanket,  I just hope whoever that person was is okay.  What a horrible thing to happen.

We wound up getting to the gym around 9:30 and that’s just too late for me, I worked out for a quick 40 minutes,  and my stats were:

    • Calories burned: 358 (40% Fat)
    • Max Heart Rate: 170
    • Avg Heart Rate 146

Not too shabby for a quick workout (mostly strength training).  I’ll definitely be working out a lot harder tomorrow.

So my plans tomorrow are to go to the chiropractor, go take a tour of an assisted living facility with my mom (for my grandparents), which may or may not include a free lunch, and then later on go out with some friends that weren’t able to come out last Saturday when I celebrated my birthday.  Should be another fun filled weekend!  Hope you all had a great  Friday night.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Picture 003

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.

Picture 004

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.

Picture 007 Picture 008

 Picture 009

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

Picture 013 Picture 011

Picture 012

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

A New Spin On Leftovers

Whew Monday is over!  Today was a pretty good day, I’m feeling much better today.  I would say I’m 90% back to good health.  My work day flew right before, before I knew it the day was over and it was time to go home.  Tomorrow is not going to be a fun day I’m starting a new project and I pretty much have 2 days to get it all done.  Should make tomorrow go by quickly as well, but it is going to be so hectic!  Hope you all had a fabulous Monday!

Chobani was on sale at Stop and Shop 10 for 10 so of course I stocked up.  I feel like it’s been a while so I grabbed a peach one for breakfast today.  I also restocked my Bear Naked Peak Protein Granola so I was able to have a protein filled breakfast.

Picture 004

You can see my desk was a complete disaster today with all the papers surrounding my breakfast.  My desk is usually super neat but I let all the papers pile up around me today.  Hopefully after this quick project is over my desk will be back to my normal organized work space.

Lunch today I had a serving of Pacific Natural Foods Organic Creamy Tomato soup.  I enjoyed it a lot, but I’ve never been a big fan of tomato soup, I would get this again just for ease, but it’s hardly something I would crave.

Picture 007

On the side I had 15 kashi crackers, but only ate 10 of them.  I put the other 5 back in the box for another day.

Picture 006

After this lunch I was satisfied for a long time but around 3 I got hungry again.  I snacked on 3/4 of a banana with pb sandwiched in the middle.

Picture 010

I love this snack it is so filling and it does an awesome job of fueling a workout or keeping me from snacking all afternoon at work.  It gets the job done for serious. Yes, I just said for serious, it’s something I’ve been made fun of since high school, it’s something I say though I know it’s not good English though.

For dinner tonight I was craving the rest of my taco meat from yesterday.  But for the sake of the blog, I knew tacos again would be so boring so I re-created tacos with a new twist.  Taco Pizza was born!

It was a whole wheat boboli crust, 2.5 ounces of taco meat, 2 tablespoons of salsa, 2 sweet mini peppers diced,  and a little more then an ounce of a low fat mexican blend cheese.  I haven’t used VeggieGirl’s “Holy Yum” on this blog yet, but for real guys, HOLY YUM!

 picture-0121

Dare I say this was better then regular tacos.  After I finished eating I thought of one thing that would have made it better.  Shredded lettuce on top once it was out of the oven.  Seriously that would have been out of this world!  Please if you find yourself with taco leftovers, make this pizza, you will NOT regret it!

After dinner I was contemplating going to the gym.  I know I’m probably not going to be able to go tomorrow because I have a doctors appointment and then a dinner date with my friend Michelle.  But it’s cold out there!  So instead I looked on demand and found a yoga sculpt program.  I’ve never really done yoga, I mean sure on the Wii Fit, which totally doesn’t count.  After I set it up and the show started I found out it was level intermediate to advanced.  I didn’t feel like looking for a new one so I did the best I could, I can’t believe how much work it was!  Yoga is something I will totally do again.

 

P.S. Head on over to Hangry Pants where Heather and Mark are giving away a box of Zoe’s Granola!

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.

Picture 002 

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.

Picture 008

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!

Picture 013

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.

Picture 017

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

Picture 018

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

Picture 019

And a slice of white.

Picture 020

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!

3 Day Recap

Since I haven’t posted any of my eats since Thursday, I have a lot of recapping to do.  I can’t believe this weekend is over already and another week of work starts tomorrow.  I still have a few things I’d like to accomplish before I go to bed tonight so I’m going to try to do this as quick as possible.

Friday for breakfast I had 2 clementines and a peach Chobani yogurt. Of course it was amazing!

Picture 001

For lunch that day I had an Amy’s burrito, I forgot to take a picture of the wrapper but it was a Cheddar Cheese and bean burrito.  Once again I was not let down by Amy’s.  It was absolutely delicious and I will definitely be buying many more of their meals to try!

Picture 003

After work and before the gym I ate a Clif bar while watching Thursday night’s Office episode.  There’s Michael Scott in the background.

Picture 004

After the gym and before our friends came over I ate a bowl of PB Puffins and blueberries with skim milk.  Delicious combo. 

Picture 007

We had a lot of fun with our friends Friday night, and once I again I decided to partake in any drinking and just chugged some water. 

Saturday was a busy day I had laundry to do, I had to pick up a couple more things for my blogger who I got in the exchange for Valentine’s day, ship it out (don’t worry it should be there Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest I shipped it all priority), and go to the chiropractor.  I didn’t have much of an appetite but I planned on going to the gym so I finally forced myself to eat some oatmeal around 12.

Picture 016

I made these at my parents house while doing my laundry and I just didn’t put enough milk in, they were really dry but once I mixed the pb in there it was delicious.  I still can’t believe I’m eating oats!!!

After the gym I still wasn’t hungry.  Something was just off, I was afraid I was getting sick but but my appetite was back in full force today.  For dinner we went to SaladWorks.  I got their Fire-Roasted Fiesta salad without tortilla strips and no dressing.    We brought it back to my parents house while I was still waiting for my laundry to be done.   I put a couple tablespoons of Salsa on the salad once I got to their house.  I also had a whole wheat roll from there.

Picture 022

Like I already said my appetite was back today and I woke up this morning craving an egg sandwich.  I had one “pam” fried egg with 3 pieces of turkey sausage all on a multi-grain roll.

After breakfast we cleaned up around the apartment and then went to the gym.  I had a really great sweaty session again today.  I’m so happy that my workouts have been pretty consistent so far.  And I love seeing the changes to my body.

After the gym I went to my parents house to pick up my camera, but when I got there my dad was washing off their cars so I took the opportunity to clean some of the salt off of Cocoa.   She looks so shiny and happy now.

After my parents house we were heading to Andrew’s parent’s house to visit.  Before we went though we stopped at Panera because I was really craving their Low Fat chicken tortilla soup.  I got a “you pick two” with the classic cafe garden salad, the soup, and a whole wheat baguette.

I used about 1/2 the dressing and ate every morsel of the rest.

After our visit to Andrew’s parent’s house we headed home.  I have been craving pizza since late last night.  I gave in today and made a pizza the same as last time.

It was delicious and I ate this plus the other 2 slices. It was perfect for my craving.  It definitely hit the spot!

Well I hope you all had a great weekend!  Sorry about my lack of commenting and posting this weekend.  Everything should be back to normal during the week.

Happy Friday!

Woo, we made it to the weekend!

I hope everyone’s Friday went by quickly.  Mine went fast until about 3 and then the minutes felt like hours!  But it feels so good to be home and be able to relax. 

Today’s eats were relatively boring. 

Breakfast was something different for the first time in a week.  I didn’t have any more Chobani so I settled for pb and raspberry preserves on an Arnold’s sandwich thin, and 2 clementines.

Yum, this definitely held me over until lunch.  I think I need to incorporate pb into my breakfast more often.

Lunch was another repeat.  I had the last of the chicken chili, and a gala apple.  It was good but it was no honeycrisp.  I wish I had bought more of them.

After this I went out for a walk and talked to my mom on the phone.  It didn’t last long because it was so cold!

My lunch did not do a great job of keeping me full.  I didn’t really expect to but I wanted to eat really light today because we had already planned out dinner.

Around 3:30 I had a snack of a peanut butter z bar, I had tried the brownie flavor a couple weeks ago but this was definitely better.

So good, give it a try if you haven’t already.

Dinner was so good, I was craving pizza since yesterday and we had some WW Boboli crusts.  So Andrew and I each made our own pizza and they came out really fantastic.

On mine I had:

  • more of the hot spaghetti sauce
  • 6 pieces of turkey pepperoni
  • green pepper
  • onion
  • and part skim mozzarella cheese

I ate the whole damn thing.  It was so good.

That was my first half, I definitely went back for the other 1/2.  It is a small pizza so I’m not that upset. 

Here’s Andrew’s pizza, it had:

  • boars head buffalo chicken
  • part skim mozz
  • mexican cheese blend
  • same sauce as me
  • and 3  pieces of turkey pepperoni.

I tried a bite, it was almost as good as mine.

Well I’m off to figure out whether I want to go out with friends tonight, have friends come here, or just get in my pj’s and read.  I have a feeling whatever I decide to do is not going to involve me leaving the house tonight.  It’s far too cold.

Hope you all have a great night whatever you decide to do!    Since it’s the weekend I hope to blog during the day as well as night.  See you in the morning!
