Back to Business

After such a great weekend it was awful getting up this morning.  In fact I left just in time to get to work, I had training again today so I had to quickly eat something I had another Luna Bar.  3 days in a row I snacked one.  That’s all I bought and I’m happy although I love the bars I’m such fan of convenience that I will grab a bar running out the door instead of taking the time to make something.

I have to say this was the least favorite one I’ve tried and I probably wouldn’t get it again.

Lunch today was a 2% Cherry Fage yogurt with granola crumbs, and an Arnold’s sandwich thin with pb.

Boring lunch but yet it was very filling.

I got out of work a little early to go hang out with my sister while my parents went to a meeting.  After everything that Jenna has been going through it has really made me realize how each day on earth is a blessing and shouldn’t be taken for granted and I need to make time to spend with my sister as often as possible, because you just never know what could happen. 

I had a left over turkey burger from last night with romaine lettuce, pickle, onion, montery jack cheese, and ketchup on an Arnold’s sandwich thin.

On the side I had a salad.

I also took advantage of my parent’s elliptical and was on it for almost 40 minutes and burned 287 calories.

I have no idea what to bring for lunch tomorrow so I need to go figure that out so I can get to bed!  Enjoy your night everyone!

88 Degrees

It was 88 degrees here today!  I couldn’t believe how hot it got but could not have been happier!  I love that smell that summer has, I love the feeling of the sun beating down on me, I love the way the ocean shimmers, the way the sea breeze comes through my windows in the morning.  Summer is my favorite time of year by far.  When other people complain it’s hot I’m usually enjoying it and relishing in the heat.  Of course some days when it’s 90% humidity I’m uncomfortable but for the most part I can’t get enough.  I’m the kind of person who can lay out in the sun all day long while everyone around me is hiding in the shade or staying cool in the AC.  I’m a whole different person in the summer then in the winter, I’m just genuinely happier.  So I hope my posts continue to reflect my good mood.  I know there were quite a few posts in the winter where I was such a complainer. 

This morning I had a Luna bar before heading out for a walk.

What took me so long to try these?  They are fantastic, I still prefer clif bars but these are a very close second. 

Remember those flowers I was going to plant?  Yeah Andrew did it while I farted around on the internet.

Picture 004

Parlsey and sweet basil, can’t wait to use these.  I also have some spinach to plant.

And here are some flowers before they were planted.

Picture 006

Snap dragons, the spinach, and some other annuals, I forget what we got, they were a 1.88 at Lowes last night and that’s really the only reason we got them.

By the time we got out on the trail it was already hot, I think it was almost 10.  Andrew kindly took some more pictures of the trail this morning for me.

Someone informed me these are called Sea Geese, they look like ducks to me, but I have absolutely no clue if he was correct or not.  Okay, he didn’t inform me, he told his kid and I overheard.

Picture 023

Picture 025

I swear Andrew would make an awesome paparazzi he always takes pictures of me walking for no reason what-so-ever and I never even notice until I look at the camera.

By the time we were done walking it was almost 12 so we decided to count our bars for breakfast and get deli bagel sandwiches.

I got grilled chicken breast with fresh mozzarella and balsamic vinegar on a whole grain bagel.

Picture 029 

I can’t describe how good this was, I expected deli sliced chicken not a big juicy grilled piece.  It really was amazing and I ate 3/4’s of it.  Afterwards we went shopping for a birthday present for Andrew’s grandma, (we’re very last minute), we grabbed a beautiful hanging flower arrangement and I also got an Iced D&D coffee.

Picture 031

Andrew is clearly a creep.  And his arms aren’t that white anymore, they are bright red.  He’s my lobster. (Friends anyone?)

We hung out with his family for a few hours and then were headed back to my parents to spray paint our table.  It wasn’t dry when we left so I don’t have an after shot but I have plenty of pictures of it in process.

I’m a graffiti artist!

Picture 042

I’ll make sure to take some pictures when I go to get it tomorrow.  Oh and do you see that pink thing on the garbage can in the background?  That’s my cell phone, it now has brown spots on it because I’m an idiot.

So we once again ate dinner at my parents tonight (and spoiler alert I will be tomorrow too!)  We had turkey burgers and kettle chips!  Perfect summer food!

Picture 044

Mine was about 4 ounces (we got a one lb package and split it into 4 but didn’t have a scale at my parents house so I may be a little off.)  With Monterey jack cheese, a pickle, and some onions.

Picture 045

Then I had another pickle:

And then a bite of an extra hot dog.

Well I’m off to try to catch up on my blog reading!  Hope you all had a great weekend and I can’t wait to read what you have all been up to!

Rainy Monday

I’m so glad the rain held off until today as it was supposed to rain on and off yesterday. I don’t care what the weather is like Monday through Thursday but if I have the next 24 Friday’s off I want them to all be nice!  According to the weather this Friday and Saturday are supposed to be in the upper 70’s and sunny again, it’s still early in the week so clearly that can change but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it is true.

Yesterday after I blogged I went to my parents house, we sat out on their patio and snacked on some peanuts (unpictured) and enjoyed the time in the sun.  It wasn’t 80 like it had been on Saturday but I sat in the sun and enjoyed the warmth.  My mom invited us to stay for dinner and she was making my favorite roast beef so we stayed.  It looks very similar to last weeks Easter dinner because we had the same sides but instead of prime rib I enjoyed 2 pieces of roast beef.

Picture 002

With Mashed potatoes (I had a second helping).

Picture 003

And a ton of asparagus.

Picture 005

All together:

Picture 006

Fantastic dinner.  To finish out our almost Easter repeat I also had a piece of cheese cake left over from last week.

Picture 008

So good, thank God this is in their fridge and not mine or this cake would have been eaten in a couple days.

After dinner we came home where I organized my things for the week and promptly fell asleep.  This 8 hours of sleep is wonderful!

Today was a day of mostly leftovers, sorry if they are boring.

I made a full batch of pancakes yesterday so I brought in the 3 leftovers.  I was asked by Erin if I have a recipe for these pancakes.  I didn’t make these from scratch but used the Whole Foods 265 brand of Whole Wheat buttermilk pancakes, they are really delicious but definitely not quite as fluffy as regular pancakes, but I really enjoy them.

I smeared a litlte pb on each of my leftover pancakes, these were amazing.

Picture 010

For lunch today I continued with the leftover trend and had the last of my turkey burgers from Friday.  I had it on an Arnold Sandwich thin.  We’ve always had ketchup packets at work but apparently they were all out but I actually enjoyed this a lot plain.

Picture 013

After work I had an errand to run and then went straight to the gym.  I was so hungry (I should have had something to eat at work but I didn’t get hungry until I was in the middle of working out.  I burned about 307 calories but then called it quits, it was embarrassing how loudly my stomach was growling.  I came home and threw together a spinach pizza.

Picture 016

For the whole pizza I used about 1 cup of spinach, and 2 ounces of cheese.  I didn’t think I’d eat the whole thing but I totally did.

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).

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 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!
