Hi Everyone! I hope your all having a great Halloween :-D

I slept horrible last night so getting up was very easy.. I had my normal bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch, Wegman's Oats and Honey with Strawberries, cinnamon, banana and skim milk. I also brought my travel mug of coffee with ff half and half and splenda with me on my chilly walk. It was another "party" day at school, lots and lots of EVIL treats!

I walked home really quick on my break and walked back to eat my lunch before my break was over. I had another huge apple with whipped cottage cheese, I also had about a cup of honey nut cheerios for some fun. My boss baked yummy cupcakes for the kids and I heard they were awesome I had had one big bite and all the frosting :) mmm so good. I walked home after work and got ready for the gym. I did about 2 miles on the treadmill and some weights and came home to get ready to go out with Adam.

We had out "date" night with Subway and watching a Halloween costume contest in Manasquan. We stumbled upon it one year and have been going ever since just because its so cute :)

Dinner was a Diet Coke and a Veggie Delight on Honey Oat bread. I ate about half of it, there were so many veggies on it!! Adam got foot long of one with meat (of course) and I had a couple of bites, it had pepperoni on it though and it gave me some heartburn! UGH that's what I get for being a piggy!! :-p I took the picture after I had eaten most of what I was eating tonight.

I'm now baking some its the hungry girl fudge. I have had a can of pumpkin in my cabinet for a long time now and thought this was a perfect way to use some of it up! :-D I had tons of the batter since all that is in it is brownie mix and pumpkin, I left out the peanut butter.

Have a great night! See you tomorrow.

Good Evening Everyone! Are you guys ready for Halloween?!!? I'm ready for it to be OVER!! All the candy is crazy and school now. ITS THE DEVIL!! HAHAH
For breakfast this morning it was the usual Kashi Go Lean Crunch and Wegman's Oats and Honey with strawberries, banana, cinnamon and Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze. I also brought a travel mug of coffee with my for my chilly walk to work.

After getting 13 kids dressed and undressed from their costumes for the 4 minute parade, our "party" and all the other chaos it was time for lunch, I had a Lemon Dannon Light and Fit an apple and some pineapple. I was STARVING from running around all morning, it was definately a wild day. In the afternoon I had one munchin since it was calling my name, it was a chocolate one.. mmmm :-D Around 4 it was quitting time and I walked home got ready for the gym and had a nice big old handful of peanuts to get me through the gym. I was so hungry today even though my tummy was very unhappy :( I did about 2 miles on the treadmill and came home to relax.. something that was MUCH needed!

Dinner was a Morning Star Farms Veggie Cheeseburger and a salad with Newman's Own Honey Mustard dressing. The burger was AWESOME! Even Adam thought it tasted like the real thing.. This is my new favorite!! After dinner we ran to K-Mart to try to find a new battery for my pedometer but no such luck :( I came home and snacked on about 6 or 7 pieces of candy corn since today is candy corn day! Something I needed to celebrate ;) I realized I needed to take a picture after I had already dug in.. I'm off to read some blogs and pass out! Tomorrow is another nutty day in preschool land.

I hope everyone has a great night and a wonderful Halloween :)
And I'll leave you with a picture of us girls from last Saturday night that I stole from one of my friends myspace ;)

Does anyone know any brands of either Pumpkin or Apple butters out there I could get in the supermarket WITHOUT HFCS??!? I've been looking everyone and can't find it :( and I'm way too lazy to make my own :-P

2 More Days To Go!!

I finally had a good night sleep last night :-D I woke up and got ready and had the usual breakfast of Kashi Go Lean Crunch, Wegman's Oats and Honey with strawberries, bananas, cinnamon and skim milk. I also bought a big old travel mug of peppermint hot chocolate which totally hit the spot on another cold and windy day.

At work today one of the little girls mom had a baby so she brought in chocolate covered pretzels which I of course had to have one of!!
Lunch was a GIGANTIC apple with cottage cheese, silly me took a pic of the apple but forgot one of the cottage cheese. I also had a few cheese its since that is what snack was in the afternoon ;)

I then went to the gym and did 2 miles on the treadmill and some weights. I then came home and made Adam and I dinner!!! I made chicken in foil with some salsa in the oven. I also had a salad with roasted red peppers, romaine, onions, zucchini and croutons with Newman's Own honey mustard dressing. YUM!

After dinner I had a brownie that was quite tasty!! I was extremely full but it was calling my name as usual. My brother just stopped by so we are bonding and just blabbing.
I hope everyone has a great night :-D See you tomorrow.

Snowy Tuesday

Holy Moly!!! SNOW IN OCTOBER?!?!? Its crazy I tell ya!
Lets see I did end up having some Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding with some LF whipped cream on top, and I had a bite of Adam's evil meatball parm sub. Why does he ask me if I want a bite? Like I'd say no?!?!?!? hahah
Onto today, it was a nasty cold windy day here in Jersey. I woke up and had my usual bowl of cereal, Kashi Go Lean Crunch with Wegman's Oats and Honey with Strawberries. I added cinnamon and a banana along with Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze. YUM!! I also brought my travel mug of coffee with splenda and FF half and half.
The day was crazy because the fire fighters came at 10 so our day was turned upside down a tad, along with not being able to take the kids outside made for a hectic day! Lunch was a Yoplait strawberry shortcake yogurt (very tasty!! had real strawberries in it) and some of an apple and some pineapple. I also had to have another piece of fudge and cookie, I can't wait for these treats to be gone!!

I got out at 4 and was off to the gym, I did alittle over 2 miles and left. My tummy just isn't happy so I thought I'd just leave. I stopped at my parents and chatted with them for a bit and finally came home around 5:15. I showered and made a bowl of Campbell's Chicken and Rice soup with some reduced fat wheatables. I just wasn't in the mood for eating, I ate most of this with some raisins and peanuts while the soup was heating up.

Over dinner we decided that we could afford my favorite band for the wedding :-D Originally I said it was WAY too expensive but Adam is a sweetie and said we should just do it! I'm so excited!! here's their link

After dinner it was off to Shoprite and 60 bux later we are finally home relaxing, I snacked on some apple cake that I made there is still a bit left.
I hope everyone had a great day! See you tomorrow.

Monday Monday...

Hello All!
Well another Monday down :) I was exhausted last night after my lack of sleep yesterday so I passed out pretty early. I woke up at 3 and was wide awake for a bit which got me ANGRY!! I was so tired.. so why the heck was I awake??!?! Don't you hate it when that happens?

My alarm woke me up at 7:30 and it was time to get ready and get going. Breakfast was some Fiber One and Wegman's Oats and Honey with Strawberries, banana, cinnamon and Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze. I also brought my much needed travel mug of coffee with some ff half and half and stevia on my walk to work this morning.

The morning flew by (thank goodness) and it was time for lunch. I had a Dannon Light and Fit and apples and pineapple cut up. MMMM I love fruit!!! One of the other teachers made home made fudge and cookies so I had a tiny piece of fudge and one cookie. I love having all these great cooks/bakers to work
I walked home and got ready for the gym, snacked on a handful of walnuts and was off! I did 2 miles on the treadmill I did some 4.0 and 10 % incline and some tush toning 3.7 and 13 % incline today and some weights.

I came home to find out Adam had to work late, its almost 7 and he's still not home :( so I made myself a almond butter and jelly sandwich on Arnold's Double Fiber bread. I also had a bag of Brother's All Natural potato chips, if you haven't tried their stuff its really great! I'm now relaxing and waiting for my brother to bring over food for Adam for dinner.

I might have a Jello sugar free chocolate pudding while the boys eat later on ;)
I hope everyone had a great Monday!! See you tomorrow

The Weekends Go By Way Too Fast!

Good Evening :)
I think we need to add one more day to our weekends what does everyone think?!?!? lol This afternoon I did some cleaning and finally dragged the sleepy head out of bed around 12:30. We headed off to the supermarket and then came home and had some lunch. I had some Chobani plain greek yogurt with berries and honeynut cheerios. I also had a bite of Adam's bacon cheeseburger and a few fries. Grease is good for a hangover right? ;) It was then time to go for a walk on the boardwalk since it was an AMAZING fall day at the Shore! It was breezy but nice and warm in the sun, and there were so many people up at the boardwalk. I love it! We stopped off at Adam's moms house to do a few things for her, I helped her upload some pictures onto her computer then we came home to relax. This is what Adam wanted to do all day.. but I'm evil and made him go out ;) When we got back I was munchie so I had a handful of peanuts to hold me over for dinner time.
Dinner ended up being a Lean Cuisine Mediterrean Chicken dinner, I added some more tomato sauce and some parmasean cheese to kick it up a bit. I bought a pineapple today so I cut that up and ofcourse had to have some. It was so sweet and juicy, MMMMM. I finished all my stuff for work tomorrow so its now time to enjoy some tv and pass out as early as possible. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, see you tomorrow!


Good Morning Everyone!
Lets go back to last night and start there. For dinner Adam and I made pizzas using flat out wraps, veggies, some mozzarella cheese and some chunky marinara sauce. They came out very very yummy.. I also had some of my leftover vcon baked beans on the side :) I then downloaded some music for Adam for his Ipod, but something is wrong with it so I was working on that until I left to go out with the girls, this is why there was no din din post last night ;)

When Jamie got here we did a shot and were off to the tiki bar! It was a VERY VERY interesting night with one too many beers, and singing Jesse's Girl on stage for Jamie's birthday! I'm hoping I find the pictures on the Internet because I can only imagine how silly we look!!! I barely slept last night and I'm hurting a tad this morning.. Now I know why I don't drink anymore! Adam was home with a friend having a few also so needless to say he is back in bed after we just had breakfast.

Breakfast for me was a Pepperidge Farm fruit and grain bagel with cottage cheese and some apple. I ate about half of it but only had one piece left when I took the picture. I couldn't wait for the bagel to toast ;) I also had a nice big mug of coffee. I'm hoping Adam is feeling better soon because I need to feel productive today and go food shopping and run a few errands. We will see, but until then I'm cutting out leaves that my kids painted on Friday and gluing them to some paper, and cleaning the apartment. What a fun filled Sunday :-P
I hope everyone is having a great day! See you for lunch!

Oh and I'll leave you with a picture Adam took of me before I left last night.

I'm a Slacker!

Hi Everyone!
Lets see.. today I was up bright and early as usual, made some coffee and had a bowl of the Wegmans Oats and Honey with Strawberry cereal, some Kashi Go Lean Crunch, a banana, cinnamon and Unsweetened Almond milk. I also had a tasty bite of Adam's porkroll egg and cheese sammy.. I'm so glad he doesn't mind sharing :-D We then went for a stroll over to the supermarket to pick up meds and some food. We also stopped at the party store for me to get a cowboy hat and guns/holster for tonights outting.

I then came home got my stuff together and went over to the parents house to do laundry before my brothers football game. I had lunch while I was there and some snacks that I really didn't need. (I had my camera but was being a piggy and completely forgot to take pictures.. ugh) I had a half a piece of the best crumb cake that my mom bought from a fundraiser at her work. I then had some Chobani plain greek yogurt with tons of frozen berries and some golden grahams. mmm this was extremely tasty!!! I was so full from the coffee cake but ate it anyway because I knew I wouldn't be home until almost 5 from the game. I got back home soaked :( got into some comfy pants and put away all my nice and clean laundry.

I am now gonna relax before we make some dinner and I have to get ready for Girl's Night Out!! We are going to Martell's Tiki Bar in Point Pleasant for their halloween party since the band we are friend's with is playing. I decided on being a cow girl since that is what my other friends are going as and it was easy ;) Maybe I'll have some fun pictures for you tomorrow morning :-D

I'll be back later before I leave with a dinner post. Hope your all having a great Saturday and that it is sunny and warm wherever you are!

Friday, October 24, 2008


Well I had another busy one today! Those kids are amped up I think the Halloween candy is seeping into their veins even though they haven't gotten it yet!

For breakfast this morning it was the usual wegmans oats and honey with strawberries cereal, fiber one, banana, cinnamon and skim milk. I also brought m travel mug of coffee with me :)

Lunch was a HUGE apple with cottage cheese and 2 chocolate chip cookies. MMM!

I walked home after work and had some walnuts before the gym. I did about 2 miles on the treadmill and some weights and came home.

I had leftver salmon and veggies with a few fries for dinner (I ate some of the salmon before I took the picture.. I was hungry), I also had a few bites of some vcon baked beans that I made a LONG TIME AGO that we defrosted. They were still awesome! (Adam had them with his dinner) We then were off to Old Navy where I got a Halloween shirt and a new sweater :-D We then went to Barnes and Nobles for our "Date" night, I had a diet rootbeer and a few bites of Adam's Peanutbutter cup cookie. We read some magazines and ended up buying the new Weird New Jersey. I love these magazines, its so much fun since I know where alot of the places are in it. It was then off to Walmart to pick up a few things and now we are home relaxing and watching tv. I had some of my apple crumble because I needed something sweet. (ok I really just wanted it!!) I'm hoping it doesn't rain tomorrow because my brother has a football game at 2 and Adam and are planned to go for a nice walk in the am.. but we will see.. If not I'll be going to the gym and doing laundry, and maybe some cleaning around the apt.

I hope everyone had a great Friday! See you tomorrow morning :-D
I'm having trouble uploading the pictures.. so I'll just leave you with my ramblings :-P

Hola Everyone!
Another day flew by today! To start out I woke up with my alarm clock which made me happy, since that means I finally slept! Breakfast was Wegmans Oats and honey with strawberries cereal, some Fiber One, cinnamon, banana and Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze. I brought my travel mug of hot chocolate with me for the COLD walk to work.

Lunch was the usual yogurt and apple, BUT it was my bosses birthday so I had to have some cake from my favorite bakery in town! I grew up with the woman who owns it son so we always had cake from her before she opened up the bakery. YUM YUM! It was chocolate cake with vanilla frosting, my favorite!

I rushed home after work had some grapes and peanuts and left for the gym. I did alittle over 2 miles while watching Oprah. I did a higher incline than normal so I was walking a bit slower. Trying to tighten the tush ;) hahah

Dinner was my leftover buffalo burger with some laughing cow cheese spread on top, some pickles, and some leftover fries from when we made our own.

It was a lazy kinda night (Adam isn't feeling well) so since I'm always wanting to do something I decided to bake some banana bread from Vcon. I love this recipe and it came out GREAT! My taster just tried some, and he gave it 2 thumbs up! I of course had to try some too, I can not ignore fresh baked goods! I am now going to zone out in front of the computer while Adam watches Survivor, I figure its a good time to catch up on blogs! Have a great night, when we wake up it will be FRIDAY!!!! WOOOHOOO

Another Fun Filled Day of Crazy!

Hi all!
Hope you all had a quick day like I did! These days are flying by! I didn't sleep well last night and was up an hour before my alarm :( I finally got out of bed around 7:15 and started my day. I had my bowl of Wegmans Cereal, Oats & Honey, With Strawberries. I also added in some Fiber One and of course a banana, cinnamon and unsweetened vanilla almond breeze. I brought my travel mug of coffee with me too.

Lunch was alittle disappointing, we got an antipasto from a pizza/wrap place. It was great last time but this time it was very oily, I should've stopped eating it but was too busy talking to another teacher to want to stop and get up to get my yogurt out of the fridge. I also had an apple with my oily greens, cheese, and olives. I walked home before eating lunch just to get out and move since I drove to work today. At snacktime I had a chocolate chip cookie, I can't wait for these to be out of the school. They are the DEVIL!!!

I then was off to the gym after work, I did about 2.10 miles on the treadmill and some weights and came home since we were taking Adam's mom out to dinner. I came home showered and got ready to go. I snacked on a few nuts before leaving because I was starving...

We went to a place in Brielle called Simkos, I got the blacked salmon, fries and veggies it also came with a salad, which I had with honey mustard dressing. I also had a Blue Moon with dinner. I was so bad today and didn't take pictures of anything except breakfast!! BAD BLOGGER!! I'm so full now and feeling yucky! I know its a mixture of hormones and just eating too much. Atleast tomorrow is another day! Hope ya'll had a good one!

Hello All!
Today was nuts! Too many little ones and not enough grown ups makes for a tough day! To start out I had a bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch and Fiber One with banana, cinnamon, and Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze. I also brought a big old mug of hot chocolate to keep me warm on my walk this cold morning. Up until lunch I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off, it was NUTS! I wasn't really hungry for lunch but knew the afternoon was going to be crazy too so I stayed and ate my Yoplait yogurt and apple (which I forgot to picture). I also had 2 chocolate chip cookies at snack time since I was frustrated. I walked home and had some walnuts and got ready for the gym. I went and did alittle over 2 miles and came home to get started on an apple cakeish dessert for Adam. I wish I remember where I had gotten the recipe from to post it but I'd want to give credit where credit is due. If I figure out where I got it from I'll post it because it came out GREAT!

I wasn't too hungry for dinner since I ate tons of the apples I was cutting up and some of the darn cake batter. Its just too tempting even though I wasn't hungry.. hahah

For dinner I heated a frozen Weight Watchers mac and cheese that has been in the freezer forever! I had some leftover tuna salad that I mixed in with it. It actually hit the spot even though it wasn't anything great at all. I think I just wanted something warm and comforting.

I was then off to the library to get some books for the kiddies and came back to cut up the cake to give away. We are keeping a few slices and I'm giving some to Adam's mom and my family. GOTTA KEEP THE SWEETS AWAY!!!!!

Well hope everyone's day flew by like mine! See ya'll tomorrow :-D

Light and Easy Monday

Good Evening All :)

Last night I didn't sleep very well, but today was an easy day so I can't complain. For breakfast I had the usual of Kashi Go Lean Crunch, Fiber One, a banana, cinnamon, the last bit of my Almond Milk and some skim milk. I also brought my travel mug of coffee with me on my walk over to work. The morning flew by since I only had 5 kiddies today :)

Lunch was light since this past weekend I had way too much meat and my tummy did not appreciate it at all! I had an apple with cottage cheese and a handful of goldfish. It was one of the little boys birthdays today so I brought home a cupcake from him (I can't turn down homemade cupcakes from cute kids) I walked home after work had some walnuts and grapes and was off to the gym. I did 2 miles on the treadmill and some weights for my arms and back. I came home and checked out my new Self magazine and relaxed until Adam got home.

I had an almond butter and jelly sandwich with some leftover sweet potato fries. I also snacked on some more goldfish while waiting for Adam to come home. I also had diet lemonade iced tea snapple with dinner. I love these so much!! For dessert I inhaled the tasty cupcake which I forgot to take a picture of. After dinner we walked across the highway for a stroll to A&P for some things. I am baking an apple cake one day this week so I thought we'd pick up what I needed since we wanted to go for a walk.

Its now time to finish cutting out my bats for the kids to paint tomorrow and read some blogs.

I hope everyone had a great Monday, see you tomorrow :)

So So Sleepy!

Ok so I know I didn't do that much today but I did do alot of driving and I'm exhausted!! Adam and I went down to The Breakers and put down our second deposit, we tried to walk up by the beach but it was WINDY and COLD. I was bundled but Adam wasn't so we walked around the block and ended up going and buying me some hair dye! :) I am going red for the fall its a wash out... I'm scared of anything that I have to keep up on, like my roots! I'm excited to do it, I can use alittle change. I started getting hungry for dinner around 6ish which surprised me since I ate so much so late, but oh well. I had a bowl of Chobani plain greek yogurt with Fiber One and lots of frozen berries. I also had a big old spoonful of peanut butter for some more protein and yummyness. For dessert I made some general foods international mayan chocolate drink but wasn't that impressed :( I thought I put enough in.. oh well.. I drank most of it and was pretty full so I tossed the rest. I then got a phone call from my friend Kelli that we got tickets to see our favorite bar band play next weekend at its their Halloween party so I have to figure out what to be. Any Ideas?!?!? please help!! haha my friends are being cowgirls.. but I dunno... Have a great night and see everyone tomorrow :-D
and here are some pictures that should up on my camera.. Adam enjoys cooking and likes for me to show everyone what he is making :) Today while I was reliving my college days he was home sweating over a hot stove making some veggie chili! It is great and quite spicy :)

Being The Good Big Sister For The Day!

Hi everyone! hope you Sunday is going great :)
Last night dinner was great but by the time I got home and we went for a little walk to work off the prime rib, Grands biscuits, green beans, whipped sweet pototoes, wine and cupcakes I set up my new printer took a tylenol pm and passed out! lol

This morning I woke up around 8 got ready and had a bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch with some Fiber One, a banana, cinnamon and almond chocolate milk. I also had a cup of coffee with splenda and skim milk. I was then off to pick my brother up and go to Caldwell College. It was so nice going up there! Its changed so much since I went there, I graduated in 2003 but went back to get my teaching certificate so I technically finished in Dec 2004 but I was commuting then one day a week. He really seems to want to go there which makes me happy!! Since we were done by 12 we walked around campus ( I was his tour guide.. lol) We decided to come home for lunch. We went to the diner by our house and I got a buffalo burger with fries. (I was all set to take the picture with my phone but once it came I was so hungry it was 2 oclock by now that I forgot) OOPPSSS!! I ate half of it with the side of coleslaw and a pickle. I was so full but I had enough room to have 2 bites of Joe's chocolate cheesecake. Darn those diners.. they always have such good desserts! I am now home relaxing and getting ready to bring our 2nd deposit for our reception site! I have a feeling after my burger so late in the day it is going to be a light dinner, maybe some greek yogurt and fruit. My body is not used to all of this meat in it! I have a feeling my stomach is going to be very angry with me... Lets hope not!

See you tonight for dinner!
I'll leave you with a few pictures of the college.. Gosh it is such a beautiful campus!
