Much Better…

It’s amazing what a full night’s rest can do for a bad mood.  I woke up this morning in a really good mood and luckily never fell back into my cranky state of yesterday.  Thanks for all your kind comments yesterday and for being so understanding.  I’m so blown away by all the sweet comments I get day-to-day!

For breakfast this morning I had the one I wanted for yesterday.  I had Vanilla Chobani and some pb puffins.  Delicious I can’t get enough of this combo.

For lunch today I decided to make up for my lack of veggies to get a subway veggie delight 6 inch sub.

Lettuce, cucs, red onions, green peppers, and vinegar.

On the side I had some Baked Lays.

After work I picked up Andrew at school and we stopped off at Whole Foods.

I had my first taste of “garbage water”.

Picture 008

This stuff seriously smelled so offensive.  I don’t know how to describe the smell, kind of like low tide on the Jersey Shore, I guess, if you know what that smells like.  But the flavor?  Fabulous!  I loved it!  My dad tasted it and said it reminded him of dying Easter Eggs.  And then he made a lot of faces.  I tried to give it to Andrew and he refused and my mom commented “Danielle, leave him alone, he just finished eating.”  I was little upset because here I am enjoying this drink and my mom is insinuating that I’m going to make Andrew vomit from a sip.  Ready for a little TMI? This drink is fizzy, fizzy = burps.  Burping after drinking this is gross, try to refrain from doing that.  I would definitely buy this again although not often, 4 bucks is a little steep for something that makes my loved ones ill.

While at Whole Foods I of course had to eat from the salad bar.

Picture 011

I had a 1/2 a piece of lasanga, 2 potato wedges and:

A big salad, romaine lettuce, celery, grated carrot, onions, cucs, red and green peppers, some kind of pasta salad, and other things I’m forgetting I’m sure.  It was a nice cold veggie full salad.

I’m now home and getting ready for bed, tomorrow is my Friday so I can’t wait until 5 o’clock to be done with work for the week!  Hope you are all having a fabulous night!

Happy Valentines Day!!

I hope you are all having a great Valentine’s day no matter what you are doing!

We had a busy day planned so I had a quick breakfast of PB puffins and a banana in skim milk.Picture 016

After driving my sister home we went to the chiropractor, then went back to my parents house to watch “You Are What You Eat.”  It’s one of my favorite shows but it’s a British show so it’s only on the BBC America channel and we don’t get that at our apartment.  If you do have BBC America you should check it out, I know it’s on every Saturday at noon but it might be on through out the week.

After watching that we went to the dress place so I could get measured and put down a deposit for my bridesmaid dress for my cousin’s wedding.  I’m so excited to get it.  It’s a gorgeous dress,  I’ll be sure to post pictures of it once I get it.

Once we were done there we headed to the gym.  My right knee started bothering me yesterday so I took it easy and mostly walked on the treadmill today with a little jogging.  I’m trying to prevent any injuries, I think I might have to look into knee sleeves, or something for my knee.

After the gym we were decided to try a kinda new place nearby for lunch called Tropical Smoothie Cafe.

I got a “Veggie Veggie” which was southwestern rice, corn, black beans, asparagus, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, onions, parmesan cheese, balsamic vinaigrette in a garlic herb tortilla.  It was really good, I just wish they had whole wheat wraps.

Andrew got a Jamaican Jerk Chicken wrap which I tasted it was really good, spicey, but delicious.

After lunch we came back to the apartment and took a long nap.  I can’t remember the last time I napped, it was glorious!  Definitely needed that.

For our Valentines dinner we went to favorite restaurant, Yesterdays, I have come here dozens of times growing up.  Pretty much every birthday I’ve come to this restaurant and I’ve only gotten one thing to eat.  Chicken parmigiana, as I said yesterday this is my favorite meal!  And at Yesterdays it’s amazing!  I’m glad we had the chicken parm last night because it made me want it less, but the craving was still there.  I started at the salad bar, that tri color pasta salad is so delicious!

Picture 029

I decided to try their homemade ravioli for my entree.  I’m glad I did it was delicious, you can’t beat fresh pasta.

Picture 031

There were 6 altogether but I ate 3 of them and brought the other 3 home for lunch sometime this week.

I also had 2 fresh rolls.  They are really small but they were still hot so I had to indulge in a couple.Picture 030

It was a really great dinner, and I was happy to actually try something new.  But on my 24th birthday next month you better believe I’m getting that chicken parm.  I don’t know if I could not eat it on my birthday. 

After we came home from dinner I had 2 of my cappachino coated coffee beans from Ellie!

Picture 034

Oh my gosh these were outta control delicious!  It was hard to stop at just 2, but I’m going to do my best to make these last.  Thank you so much Ellie!!  Andrew tried one and loved it as well, I’m going to have to hide this bag from myself before I eat the whole thing tonight!

Well I’m off to lay down and watch “Burn After Reading”  I hope you all had a lovely Valentines Day!

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.

Picture 023

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.

Picture 024 Picture 025  Picture 027

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.

Picture 036

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.

Sunday Cleanup

Hey everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend.  I can’t believe it’s already over.  I am so ready to get in bed and relax for the coming week.  I know it’s going to be a busy one at work with lots of meetings and deadlines for major projects. 

We had a lot of fun at the party last night.  I talked about Michelle last week and how I’ve known her since I was very little.  I’m very lucky to have lots of close friends from my childhood, my 4 closest girlfriends are girls I’ve known since I was in elementary school.  One of them is Laura, if you enjoy celebrity gossip she has a great blog.  I’ve known her, since I believe, Kindergarten.  Last night the party we went to was for her Fiancé.  I’m very excited for her and I’m actually in her wedding party.  I know it’s going to be so much fun and I can’t wait until next March for the wedding!  

Laura’s wedding is another reason I want to lose weight.  In addition to her wedding next year, I also have my cousin’s wedding in September.   This past July I was in another one of my childhood friend’s wedding.  I had a great time but I know I would have been able to have more fun if I was smaller.  When you’re in a group of 9 girls and you’re all wearing the same thing it’s hard to not judge how you look compared to the others.  It was a hard day for me, but the wedding was so fun I was able to move past my own insecurities and I had a great time.

At the party last night I had a bite of one of Andrew’s mozzarella sticks.  Other then that I stuck to just a couple glasses of water.  I’m really happy I’ve cut back on my alcohol drinking. It’s been really easy so far.  And since I’m allergic to beer my bar tabs can be pretty large since most mixed drinks cost between 5 and 7 bucks.  It’s definitely nice to not wake up with hangovers on the weekend and to be saving money.

Let’s get into today’s eats.

Breakfast was a quick bowl of PB Puffins. Picture 002

After breakfast it was time to bite the bullet and do some laundry.  It’s been a very long time since I’ve done any.  Since we don’t have a washer and dryer in our apartment I go to my mom’s house to do my laundry.  I’m still a mooch what can I say.  We’re looking to rent a house or move to another apartment next year, and on the top of my list are, laundry hookups in the apartment, and pets need to be allowed there.  I love our apartment now but lugging laundry up and down 3 flights of stairs is a bit of a pain.  Plus I’ve been thinking lately how much I’d love to have a pet and my landlords put in the lease that there were no pets allowed.  We live in an old Victorian house built around 1896 and the landlords live right below us, so there’s no way we could get away with having any pets.  Although we’re thinking we might ask them if we could get something small like a chinchilla, or something similar.  I miss my dog a lot and it would be nice to have some kind of animal here.

While doing my laundry I ate a deep chocolate vitamuffin with pb and a clementine I stole from my parents.

While my second load of laundry was in the dryer Andrew and I went to the gym.  I had another great workout and was really excited because I was able to run a lot longer then ever before.  Nothing that impressive but since I only started running about a week and a 1/2 ago I’ve already seen a great increase in my endurance.  It makes going to the gym so much fun when every time your there you can see and feel a great improvement.

After the gym I went back to my parents and while waiting for my laundry to be done I snacked on some baby carrots, and some dip.

Picture 015

I ate all the carrots and about 1/2 of the dip.  It was a delicious crunchy snack.

After my laundry was finally complete we came home and I cleaned out my whole dresser and reorganized everything.  I still need to organize my closet but that can wait until next weekend.  Next weekend I plan on doing a complete and thorough clean up of the apartment.  And the closet is on the top of my list of things to get done.

For dinner Andrew and I tried something new.  We decided to make ravioli using wonton wrappers.  Mine were stuffed with spinach and fat free ricotta, while Andrew stuffed his with meat.  They came out really good for our first time, although a few of them did burst while boiling.  I ate all the spinach ones I made and a couple of Andrew’s meat ones.  I have to say the ones with meat were absolutely delicious.  The spinach ones were great, but Andrew’s tasted like really great meatballs. He did an awesome job.  

Picture 023

That’s not the best picture, but it’s the best one I have. 

Well enjoy the rest of your Sunday night everyone.  See you tomorrow!
