Need to Get Back in The Swing of Things!

So I was such a slacker today and completely forgot to take pictures! I really need to get back into the picture taking mode ;) I’ll just give ya a recap of my not so fun filled day… started out with a bit over 2.5 miles on the treadmill.. showered and got some cereal with almond milk and banana in my belly. I was trying to be the good little wife and find the box of frozen veggies for Adam and I to have tonight before I left (since Adam is working nights he eats his “dinner” around 4:30) and I don’t get home till after 5 on Tuesdays from work. Well our freezer is PACKED and there was a cave in!!! I couldn’t get the darn freezer to close to save my life.. I was there moving things around for over 5 minutes with no luck at all :-( I ended up having to wake up poor Adam even though he just got home around 6ish from work. I felt horrible but it was almost time for me to leave for work and I was still in my pj’s! OOPPS! Thankfully he fixed it and I was off to get ready and head into work with a nice hot mug of coffee in my hand.

I walked into more craziness there! Phones ringing… patients at the window.. just nonstopness! ahhh! it finally did calm down a bit thank goodness :-D Before I knew it, it was lunch time. I had a huge apple, cottage cheese and about 1.5 servings of Kashi cracker. YUMO! I did also snack on 2 pieces of chocolate as the day went on. Around 5:15 it was time for me to head home to my sweetie since we only had about 45 minutes to spend together today.. UGH I’m not a fan of him working nights at all!

We sat and talked for a bit and then while he was getting ready for work I made up a PB&J on whole wheat bread with some cheddar and sour cream chips and pop chips on the side. I needed some comfort food ;) after Adam left I got a few things done around the apartment and got on the treadmill to do another mile to try and relax a bit. Unfortunately relaxing was not in my future! I did my crunches and some squats and resistance band exercises with my arms.. Then I went to wash my face and saw that our bathroom sink is backing up! And then completely stopped draining.. There is a ton of my hair stuck down there.. oopps once again… MY BAD!!!!!! I called Adam and complained and then decided on going to the ‘rents to pick up their plunger.. It helped so we will see what happens tomorrow… I ended up having 2 brownies since I was in a funk.. Oh well tomorrow is another day right? Thank goodness I don’t have to fit into a wedding dress :-O Hope everyone has/had a great day! See you tomorrow with pictures!!!!

Pro Bar Review!

Hey there bloggies!! Sorry I have been MIA but I’m in a jobless funk at the moment and rather than complaining about to you, I just thought I’d blog stalk and take a break.. I do have a review for ya’ll though!!!

I as lucky enough to get some samples a while ago and since I have tried them all out I thought I’d give ya my little old 2 cents ;)

First I tried was the Superfood Slampro-100070nut1 

Here is what the website said:

Superfood Slam is a nutritional powerhouse. Our organic acai berries, pure raspberries, dark chocolate and live greens are blended together with PROBAR's 15 signature whole food ingredients for a bar that is good for you and tastes SUPER.

Wow I thought this was great! There were huge pieces of cashews and whole almonds. I did not think this tasted “green” at all! And it definitely filled me up.

Next up was Kettle Cornpro-100100


The website said: The Kettle Corn bar is a deliciously nutty popcorn treat with strong toasted-corn flavor. Bring it to the theater.

This was my least favorite, there were corn kernels in it and it just didn’t do it for me. Definitely not horrible but not my kinda thang..

The third I tried was Cherry Pretzelpro-100087


The website said: The Cherry Pretzel bar is pretzels with a twist, featuring whole Bing cherries and exceptionally smooth dark chocolate.

All I can say is YUM YUM! Cherries, pretzels, and dark chocolate all together. This was by far my favorite! I would totally buy this one if I found it out!

Next up was the Koka Moka:pro-100063


The website says: Like the taste of mocha in your coffee? Try Koka Moka, a delectable mocha flavored bar that is sure to please any coffee aficionado's palate. So scrumptious

I thought this one was a winner too! Big almonds, chocolate chips, and brazil nuts. All mixed with a nice coffee flavor is a tasty meal in my book! I’d buy this one again too!

The last one was Art's Original Blend: pic5


Their website says: Art's Original Blend tastes like your favorite trail mix in a bar. It is a delectable combination of whole grain goodness, chunky nuts and moist, delicious fruits. Break the bad-bar experience today and enjoy Probar, the only bar that tastes like real food!

Again this one was great! I love being able to see the nuts, seeds and fruit that I am eating and knowing it is all healthy and good for me!

Its funny because  I was so excited when I opened each one of these that I would look for all the nuts first and eat them, then eat the rest of the bar.. Weird I know! But it made me happy :-D

I hope everyone is having a great day! I’ll be back soon with some of my eats… Believe me though you aren’t missing too much :-P

Learning How To Relax…

UGH I’m so not a fan of not being able to do what I want.. There was no gym today and minimal movement on my part. I took a muscle relaxer last night after dinner with the family and it made me sleepy and sick to my stomach.. oh what fun! Oh here’s a recap of mom’s Birthday dinner… (I started eating my salad and realized I had to take a picture!!) I also had a glass of White Zin but forgot to take a picture.. I was drinking it to make the pain go away…..

 001 002003

I did sleep almost 9 hours though and got up around 8 this morning. Adam was off again today trying to use up some vacay time. We had some coffee and breakfast (I had an apple with cottage cheese and some cantaloupe and then did some errands.

007 004 005

I tried a few samples at Wegman’s and got some new m&ms that are coconut flavor.. MMMM so good! When we got home from BJ’s, Target, and Wegman’s I had a Chobani yogurt with frozen strawberries, blueberries, granola and some Kashi Go Lean. I love this lunch! There was also some diet “crack” since I was in a cranky mood :(

009 008

I had some pretzel a bit later while looking for jobs online. OH WHAT FUN! I decided to lay down and read my book for about an hour until my brother called to come over and visit. Once he left I was getting mighty hungry ( I think the stress on my body is screwing me up royally!) I  made a “crack wrap” with garlic hummus and Swiss cheese on a flat out wrap and had some pickles and fries on the side. This hit the spot and wasn’t anything too crazy for my belly who isn’t happy with me and my muscle relaxers…


After dinner we went to Pet Smart to look around and then to Barnes and Nobles (since it was a walk around then sit and read magazines night.. easy on the hipage) I had an unsweetened passion iced tea. SO SO GOOD!!! When we got home I snacked on a piece of Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate.. I had to pick this up last night! It has been my favorite since I was little and would go to my parents’ friends house and they would have the Hershey’s miniatures in a candy bowl. I would always pick out all of the dark ones!!! :-D


I think its now time to take a muscle relaxer and read some more of my book after I look for jobs again.. Think some more were added in the past 3 or 4 hours? Gosh I hope so!!! See ya tomorrow :)

If I Were A Horse.. I’d Be Glue!

Hey girlies.. Well yesterday was a rough day until I took 1 too many Aleve and then my hip was finally feeling better! I woke up feeling ok ate some cereal and had my coffee then headed to the gym.

004 002

I barely could make it through 2 miles and had to leave after lifting! I came home and did some abs, and some upper body Wii Active and vegged around. Trying to make the pain go away.. What did I do to myself?!?!?!

I was finally hungry for lunch around 1:30 and made up a yummy bowl of salad. I had lettuce, peppers, cucs, red onion, garlic hummus, croutons, and lots of salsa.. MMM I also had a few Pringles :-D


I laid around for most of the afternoon hoping my hip would feel better since Adam and I were going to the Monmouth County fair at night. Luckily it felt better and we went! We saw the racing pigs (I have to see them every year!!) I pet a baby cow, and saw so many adorable animals! I look forward to going to the fair every year, but feel like such a dork since it is usually families with children. Oh well one day I’ll have a kiddie to take with us!! Dinner was a Genisoy bar in the car on the way there since we are saving $$$ and I wasn’t hungry before we left. We did a ton of walking and my hip felt great! We came home and I was getting hungry so I had a nectarine, some pineapple. I also had a Miller Lite, to take the edge off and thanks to Adam a shot of Baily’s Irish Cream. He was hoping some booze would make me feel better.. hahah

Onto today.. I woke up today and was feeling good, I should’ve known it was too good to be true! I putzed around and finally had some breakfast around 9 and lots of coffee :) same cereal as yesterday (Raisin Bran, Kashi Go Lean, naner, cinnamon, and soymilk).


I did some abs and got ready for the gym, unfortunately the pain was unbearable and I like to think of myself as a tough cookie! I didn’t even do a mile on the treadmill and had to come home to Adam in tears.. He decided I should go to the doctor. I showered and got ready and was off.. Well we got there late and they were about to leave for lunch so we just sat in the car for an hour, as it monsooned! Once I was taken she said she thinks I pulled my hip flexor? I was given some Muscle Relaxers and was told to rest.. UGH! If it doesn’t get better by the beginning of the week I have to go back for X-Rays.. lets hope its better!!! We were going to stop off at the pharmacy on the way home but since it was 1:30 already we were both starving! I made the same bowl of salad as yesterday because it totally hit the spot! MMM I had it with some Crystal Light in my new Riverhorse Brewery glass.

010 007

I inhaled this bad boy and might have had a few bites of Adam’s pasta salad too.. ;) I’m now trying to lay low until we have to leave at 5 to get my prescription and head to mom and dad’s for my mom and aunt’s Birthday dinner!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM AND AUNT KATHY!!! We are going to have Cesar salad, lasagna, and cake…. MMM I’m also bringing some TJ’s wine, maybe it will make my leg feel better? Its worth a shot ;) hope everyone’s day is going great! See ya later.
