Dinner on the Go

My mid-afternoon snacks were pretty typical.  Yogurt and cereal: And an orange: Dinner was eaten on the go -- literally!  I had a few handfuls of cereal plus.... I threw together a Flat Out Wrap, Sabra Hummus, and cucumber and ate it in the car: It was good! (There was a LOT of hummus. I [...]


Twilight Spoilers!

Somehow, I've managed to keep my obsession with Twilight off the blog for several weeks now....  But that doesn't mean I'm not stalking Twilight blogs for New Moon updates!   And here's the best on-set Italy pictures I've seen so far: (I literally just fainted a little bit at my desk. Sorry, Husband). I love [...]


Cool Cups

Afternoon!  I'm chugging right along.  How are you?   Lunch was eaten in parts between 10:30 to 11:30.  I like to stretch it out.  :)   First up:  a bowl of watermelon! I finally finished that ENTIRE watermelon.  I think the Husband only helped a little!   The main part of lunch: 1 cup of [...]


Ingredients for a Great Mood

It's ironic that I was so positive last night because I definitely laid in bed and just cried a little.  I've always been a BIG CRIER.  I cry when I'm happy, I cry when I'm sad, I cry when I'm overwhelmed, I cry when I'm bored... literally.     The waterworks just come so easy for [...]


Fruit Overload and Work Overload

I think I'm going to have a Fruit Food Baby.    My first mid-afternoon snack was the usual: Chobani + cereal.   But then I got suckered into these fresh fruits sitting in my fridge: Plus quite a few more slices of watermelon.  My tummy hurt so much after all of that fruit!  It was [...]


Amazing Pasta

Due to the holiday week, I actually only have to work 8-hour days--instead of 10-hour days--at my full-time job.  That meant I didn't have to start working until 9:00 AM (cue: angels singing and strumming harps)!   I had a leisurely breakfast around 7 AM: My stellar bowl of oatmeal contained:   1/2 cup oatmeal [...]


Project Glow Recap

Angela, you are a miracle-worker!   One month ago, I wrote Angela an e-mail whining about my sallow, uneven skin tone and breakouts. "I'm 25!" I wrote.  "Shouldn't my skin be more... adult?!"  She asked me to tell her about my current skin care routine, and I must admit I blushed when I described my [...]


Double Duty

Around 5:00 PM, I drank a Green Monster: My GM contained:   1 cup unsweet almond breeze 2 cups kale 1 banana ice   My dad made a yucky face when I forced him to try it... hah! I swear they are good!   I also had watermelon: I settled down in bed to try [...]


Another Veggie Success

What a day -- four hours in the car for just a few hours with the family.  It was worth the effort and very nice to see my Grandpa.   I was excited when my aunt suggested Toojay's for lunch.  It's a chain with some wonderful vegetarian options. I ordered the Mediterranean Healthy Trio: The [...]


Happy Memorial Day!

For all  my non-American readers: Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May, and it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service.   I actually get Memorial Day off from BOTH my jobs (miracle... I hear angels singing somewhere), so my Dad is [...]


Eat What You Crave

Immediately after showering off the sweat and dirt from my 36-mile bike ride, I had a lovely snack of yogurt, blackberries, and Kashi Heart to Heart.  But, my camera ate the picture! :)   I tooled around the house for most of the afternoon, doing laundry and other chores.  I was so parched from my [...]


Turtles and Gators and Boars, OH MY!

Did I just go on a 36-mile bike ride or a safari? My ride this morning was gorgeous, rain-free, and so exciting!  I saw so many wild animals!  My first encounter was a turtle: He was stuck in the gutter so I knocked on his shell (to make him hide inside), picked him, and placed [...]


Ladies’ Night

Oh no -- I'm drogging (drunk blogging!).  :)  I had a really fun evening with my friend Neely and her friend Brittnay.   But before all that, I actually made it to the gym!  And I got to wear my new knee sleeves, which were amazing! Note to self:  knee sleeves need to be replaced [...]


New FAQs

Another crazy Saturday morning!  My lack of hunger this morning definitely threw me for a loop -- by 2:00 PM, I was STARVING and out of snacks!   Lunch was eaten at work and thus on-the-go: I packed a Sesame Goji Pro Bar, which I really enjoyed! In fact, I liked all the Pro Bars [...]
