Another SLOOOW Day… Is It Friday Yet?

Hey Girlies.. I had a tough time sleeping again last night, so it was extremely hellish to wake up this morning. I jumped on the treadmill and cranked out 2.75 miles showered and inhaled a bowl of cereal (Fiber One and some Mesa Sunrise from Natures Path, with Unsweetened Almond Breeze, banana, and some raisins. I also had a couple handfuls of grapes that went un pictured.

I brought my mug of coffee with me to work and had an uneventful day. The morning dragged on and on… Until a VERY YUMMY lunch. A nice woman who works for an imaging company brought us lunch today. I had a salad with mixed greens, dried cranberries, walnuts, granny smith apple and grilled chicken. It had a tasty dressing on the side and I might have had a garlic knot which was AMAZING and a few bites of a peppermint chocolate cookie (it was like a giant Girl Scout Thin Mint). I was lucky to get out of work early and came home to a napping Adam. I cleaned up some dishes in the sink and hand a couple handfuls of peanuts and lounged with my sweetie since I actually could spend some time with him today!!!

Dinner ended up being a Lean Cuisine Philly-style Steak & Cheese Panini. I also had some more sweet potato fries on the side and an pickle that didn’t make the picture ;) I kind of started inhaling my food and then remembered the picturing taking thing.. I really need to get used to this again!!! untitledDSCN2061

I did some more cleaning.. Ordered some Evil but delish Girl Scout cookies from my niece, (sound so weird to say I have a niece now!!) and did another 1.25 miles on the treadmill and some abs.. I am now sitting down to relax with a Jell-O Dark Chocolate Decadence Mousse cup with some Cool Whip..


Today definitely was not a very healthy day. I need to jump back on the band wagon tomorrow!!

Does anyone have any exciting plans for the weekend? Ours are still up in the air…

Slow Day=Long Day!

Wow did today drag on! I woke up this morning did my usual 2.75 miles on the treadmill, showered and ate my favorite Pumpkin Spice Cliff bar and chugged a ton of water before heading out to work. I also my mug of coffee.

I got in.. called patients and pretty much sat and twiddled my thumbs…. I’d totally rather be busy than not, it makes for such a long day :-( Lunch came around 12:20, a tad to early but it was quiet so I went. I had my usual yogurt, today was banana cream with Kashi Go Lean Crunch and an apple.


The afternoon was just as slow but I was stuck there until after 4:15 because of phone calls and dumb pharmacies!! UGH After work I went to my parents to pick up some of my favorite home made mac and cheese from dad! MMMM THANKS DAD! ;) I snacked on a few cookies while chatting with mom and dad then came home to see Adam before he left for work.

We talked for a bit then I got my dinner all set. It was leftover turkey burgers Adam had made this weekend, with onions. Tasted like a healthy White Castle cheeseburger.. MMM I had mine tonight with a slice of american cheese, ketchup and honey mustard on the side, sweet potato fries and some bread and butter pickles. YUM YUM


After dinner I decided to make up a batch of Hungry Girl's Chocolate Fudge. I over cooked it a bit this time because I was trying to do some Wii Active. DAMN! OH well.. Still tastes good ;) I ate 2 squares and 2 handfuls of grapes after it had cooled and I finished up my Wii Active and mile on the treadmill while watching Extra :) I think tonight is gonna be a veg out and do nothing kinda night! Maybe some Man VS. Food on the travel channel. :-D


What’s your favorite “food” show?

I’m On A Roll!

Wow two whole days in a row! hah Lets see.. this morning started out on the treadmill.. did my usual 2.75 miles then showered and made the same bowl of cereal as yesterday.. except I almost forgot the picture.. so this bowl is half eaten already.. ooppps At work I had my coffee with stevia and coffee mate.


I walked in to a busy morning since I go in at 10 and stay later on Tuesdays. Both phone lines were ringing and there were lots of insurance stuff to be done. Gotta love the new year! Lunch was take out since we had a drug rep come in. I got a cup of Beef Barley Veggie soup that came with oyster crackers and a half of a tuna sammy on ww bread. I had the cup of soup, some crackers and a bite of the sandwich but was so stuffed! There also was a side of diet crack ;) I got out right on time at 5 and came home to see my sweetie for about an hour before he left for work :( I whipped up a HUGE salad for dinner with romaine, cucs, green peppers, roasted red pepper, Sabra hummus, croutons, and tons of salsa!!(I may have snacked on a handful of almonds and a handful of grapes while making it up)  MMMM so good.. I also had a side of home made sweet potater fries. This may be my favorite dinner EVER!



(I’m really trying to get back on some kinda track ;) After dinner and reading the local paper online I did some cleaning and jumped on the treadmill to bust out another 1.25 miles I also did some resistance band for my arms and back and crunches. I was on a roll today!!!

I’m now off to watch The Biggest Loser and eat my tasty Peppermint Patty and have a nice cold glass of H2O! I need to make it an early night tonight.. Last night was one of those nights were I had silly things running through my head all night and tossed and turned until after midnight trying to get to sleep! I hate when that happens!


I hope everyone has a great night!

I Need To Make A Come Back!

Hi there ya’ll! I decided this morning in the shower and after I got on that wonderful scale that I need to start taking pictures of what I am eating.. Or at least reflect back on everything I ate every night. I know gaining a few pounds isn’t a big deal, but these weren’t healthy pounds.. Yes I did eat some amazing meals this holiday, but I also ate my fair share of candy, chocolate and drank a ton of booze! I did enjoy myself though, my stomach on the other hand is a completely different story. So as of today I’m kicking my a$$ into gear.

This morning I did 2.75 miles on the treadmill showered and made up some breakfast. Today it was the usual, some Kashi Go Lean Crunch and some other random cereal that I can’t remember that I just dumped in with it.. haha into the mix went a naner and Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze… and a handful of un pictured raisins ;) There were also 2 cups of coffee ingested today. One with stevia and ff coffee mate, the other just with splenda at work.  


The morning flew by (not that I was complaining at all!!!) and before I knew it I was being told to make a run for it to get to lunch before the afternoon patients started coming in.. Lunch was a blueberry yogurt with more Kashi Go Lean Crunch mixed in and a Clementine. My tummy just has not been right so trying to down this was tough.. On a good note my ultrasound on my tummy came out A OK.. so what the heck is my DEAL!?!?!?


After work I came home and was feeling really munchy, so I decided on some pretzels and 2 handfuls of grapes. I chatted with Adam (since he leaves for work at 6pm:( ) and then his mom stopped by so we could pick out Thank You’s for the wedding, Adam’s Mom works for a printing company! I then made up a PB&J on new bread that we got new Arnold's Double Protein Bread Its got some great things in it:


Health Benefits:

  • 14g protein in 2 slices
  • 18g whole grains (100% whole wheat)
  • Good source of fiber
  • No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
  • No high fructose corn syrup

I also had some Popchips and a few pretzels too there were more on there.. but I snacked before the camera came out :)


When I was cleaning up and putting a new filter in my Pur water filter, I snacked on about 4 pieces of Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate and some more grapes..


I got some cleaning up done and did another mile on the treadmill.. Now its time to relax and watch some Real Housewives of Orange County since the Food Network is no longer on Cablevision :( I am not a happy girl! oh well I hope everyone had a great holiday!! See you tomorrow.
