Oops I did it again

7 08 2009

My posting became sporadic nonexistent again! Garrr! I’ve just been so busy lately, but things are starting to slow down in preparation of school. Well, kinda 😉 Between babysitting, summer reading, organizing my room/organizing my LIFE, working out, and parties, this week has been a busy one!

You can see my workout schedule on the sidebar on my blog, but I will tell you that my workouts lately have been AWESOME. For example… Tuesday I did Yoga Fitness Fusion+Incredible Abs. And today I did Yoga Fitness Plus+Incredible Abs. All from exercisetv! (LOVE that website!) The incredible abs video is SO challenging. It’s 20 minutes of ab work. Aside from a few child’s poses, you are constantly doing something. I know all you guys who love to work your abs would absolutely adore this video. Really, try it out! Both of the yoga workouts were amazing as well. Very challenging, I was worn out after these two combined. Since my wrist pain, I hadn’t been able to do much yoga (if any!), so I am so happy to have started doing it again. Yoga makes me happy 😀

In some sad news—the bf broke his collar bone. He did it playing soccer (they were practicing falling?) and he has to wear a sling for 6 weeks and no soccer for 10. He’s super bummed because he’s very, very active. Hates to sit stills, plays a bunch of sports (has played football, soccer, basketball, etc) This year he was going to play soccer, basketball, and golf. But we’ll just have to see how it heals. I get to see him tomorrow but I suppose I’m going to have to be very cautious when I try and hug him and such. Hm… Oh well, we’ll get through it 😉

The eats lately have been wonderful as well! Wanna see pics? Why of course you do?

Here are the past few days’ eats.

This dessert is amazing! It’s a sliced banana, 3 sliced prunes, and peanut butter. Micro waved to perfection! (about 20-30 seconds)


Many people have asked me where I got this bowl. Well, I got it from my grandparents and I asked them where they had gotten it. Their answer? Big Lots! 100_6121 100_6123

I actually had a whole sweet potato, not just half. I accidentally took the pictures when the memory card wasn’t in it. Genius of me, huh? I realized that about half way through. The other half was topped with avocado! 100_6134




(Whole wheat bagel with almond butter and fresh strawberries! SO yummy!


Raw Zucchini Pasta – used a peeler and topped the zucchini with corn, parm, and tomato sauce. Very good! SUPER filling too! 100_6152

100_6156 100_6158 Yesterday I made something so decadent it couldn’t possibly be for breakfast, right? WRONG. Dark Chocolate Oatmeal topped with strawberries, and 2 kinds of nut butter. Oh my oh my! For the oatmeal, everything was the same except for almond milk and a scoop of this! 100_6141 Next time I’m at the store I am for sure picking up some Stevia. Because I had none on hand and it needed a little bit of sweetness, I used some real brown sugar. Just about a teaspoon or so. So good! 100_6143

100_6144 100_6145

100_6146 100_6147 Now onto today’s eats!




Hard boiled eggs=such an easy way to get protein! Love it! 100_6163 100_6165 100_6166 100_6167 100_6169 100_6170 100_6171 100_6172 These were very good! Definitely different, but still yummy! 7 grams of protein too! 100_6175 100_6176 100_6177 100_6179 I babysat tonight from 6:30-8:30. There was 15 kids and 4 babysitters! I made $25. 25 dollars closer to my car! Haha, I had a great time tonight. I LOVE babysitting and I LOVE kids. My arms are literally like jello because I carried around a big baby boy for a while. I cannot tell you how many times I sang Jesus Loves Me.

I didn’t eat dinner until 9:00. I was starving and couldn’t find anything to eat. My family went out to Mellow Mushroom so I had a slice (and another super small slice, just to make sure it was good 😉 ). You could tell it was fresh and made by hand. No Dominos for this girl! 🙂

Tomorrow I’m having a small group of my friends over for swimming and a movie. Should be fun! Definitely looking forward to seeing the bf. Even if he can’t swim, I’ll sit there and be there with/for him ❤

I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it.

i want to see the time traveler’s wife so badly! but i really want to read the book first because i’ve heard it’s amazing…my best friend read it and loved it. oftentimes a movie will ruin the greatness of a book, but i love rachel mcadams so i’m sure i’ll love the movie. i doubt i’ll ever get around to reading the book. sad but true. on another note, SWEET POTATO + PB = PERFECTIONNNNNN. and you just reminded me of baked sweet potato fries. i haven’t had them in far too long!

have fun tomorrow! and i’m sorry to hear about what happened to your boyfriend. ouch!

Yay for getting yoga back in and your wrist getting better! Sorry to hear that the bf broke his collar bone though!

The banana + prunes + PB microwaved dessert sounds fantastic, as does the zucchini pasta meal with parm and corn! Yummy and creative combos!

I want to see the Time Traveler’s Wife SOOO badly!!! I need to read the book too!

YAY, thanks for the shoutout on my giveaway! I can’t wait to go tomorrow…I need to compile my list tonight/tomorrow morning 😉

I drive a Ford Focus, and I love it! She’s a bit of an older model, so she’s starting to have some problems, but overall it’s a great, sporty car that’s perfect for me! 🙂

Yup, you spelled Maranatha right! I’ve never tried their PB…but I’ve heard good things! (Is it tasty?)

So sorry to hear about the bf’s arm! That stinks, especially for an active guy!
I made a chocolate smoothie with 100% cocoa yesterday…YUM! Bitter, but yum!

That sweet potato w/almond (?) butter pic looks outta this world!
I LOVE Rachel McAdams too…I could watch The Notebook a million times and never get sick of it! I’m looking forward to Time Traveler’s Wife! 🙂

Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope

I’m just glad to hear you’ve been keeping busy… that’s what summer is for!!! Enjoy what’s left of it! 🙂

SO sorry to hear about the bf. My cousin broke his collarbone a few years back and the doctor told him it’s the most painful bone to break in the body. Spoil that boy for a while! 😉

I actually drive a Ford Taurus (I think it’s like a year 2000). If you’re looking for a reliable, yet decently priced and attractive car, definitely check these out! Both of my brothers actually each have one too. There’s are a little newer than mine, but they all run wonderfully!


8 08 2009

Sounds like you’ve been super busy!
Thanks for the sweet comments, made me feel a lot better!
That pizza looked delish, I can’t remember the last time I had a slice of really good pizza, bc my fiance always wants Pizza Hut and I don’t really consider it worth eating haha!
I hope your bf’s collarbone heals quickly, I broke mine when I was little so I don’t remember much abou it.
Have a great day!

Hope your bf is feeling better!

8 08 2009

I live in NYC right now so I don’t do much driving but when I go home (Long Island) I drive an old beat up Mercedes! I love it even though the radio and AC don’t work! haha
