Weekend warrior


The day I spend the morning ‘baby’ sitting.  🙂

I usually have to be over at my sister’s at 5:30/5:45 AM – She works at 6AM.

So I pack up my laptop, some work, a magazine or two, and enjoy the quiet while I wait (with dread) for the Heathens to awake 🙂


Punk (my oldest niece) — you can see her on my YouTube Channel. Is really into a ‘healthy foods’ kick.  So I told her I was making her a healthy breakfast.


2 egg omelette (What? — They’re good) w/ Cheddar Cheese

Toast with Blackberry Preserves



Yes, that is my breakfast and no I’m not afraid to admit that it’s my FAVORITE plate at my sister’s house. 🙂


Speaking of Omelettes — I have officially decided I am a master… mine are getting fluffier and fluffier each time I make them.  MY secret?  LOW HEAT!  It takes longer, but they’re so good I don’t care.

*Before you judge that picture I do have to make it known that I was making omelettes in a saucepan — for some reason I can’t find a small skillet at my sister’s… Christmas present? – that’d go over well)



Normally Saturdays are the nights Punk stays with me – but this weekend I’ve been told she’s staying with MaMa… that means I can un tonight.  Yay!


1C Vegetarian Chili

2 cornbread muffins

*leftovers from Thursday*



Veggie pizza and birch beer



Day 2 of C25K



TGIF indeed. 🙂

I love my job — a lot actually. (I know, weird right?) but I am still geeked for the weekend.


2 egg omlette

2T homemade salsa

Coffee with the Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer you see in the background 🙂 (uhh…YUM!)


On the way to work I was behind this car and I actually really enjoyed their bumper stickers.  I haven’t seen one – let alone three – that resonate so clearly with me.



We talked our manager into taking us off-site for a lunch meeting (score!)

Chipotle was the choice

I had a salad with a small scoop of rice, black beans, veggies, all the salsas, and a ‘little’ cheese (which was as much as I put on in a ‘normal’ serving…HOLY COW!)


2 cornbread muffins

No – you read that right… just the muffins.  I fell asleep reading at 6pm and didn’t wake back up until 9pm.  I didn’t want to eat anything heavy that late so I just ate some of the left over muffins from last night’s dinner.  Meh.


Yes, today should have been a training day… but again, I fell asleep so I just jogged around my block a couple times with Demon Dog and came back in.  Total Distance?  MAYBE a half mile.  But I realized when I got back that I jogged the whole time (!?)

Live and learn

Today was just one of those days where I felt like the world was a crap-fest. 

I woke up way late. My charger broke last night so I plugged my phone into my computer thinking it would charge and be fabulous.  Well. Not so much.  I guess if it’s plugged into the computer alarms don’t go off. (Go figure)

I managed to grab breakfast and pack a lunch before sprinting out the door only five minutes late. Yay me!

Only to sit in traffic and be about 15 minutes late to work (boo hiss! )

And since I was in a crabby mood from that everything else just irritated me. 🙂

OK. Enough complaining.

Two multi grain waffles  with 1T peanut butter on each

I packed my lunch but we had a rep lunch and I felt guilty since she’d brought special veggie food
So. ….

A veggie panini with veggie cream cheese,  veggies,  and muenster cheese (drool)
Half a bag of salt and vinegar chips
Two pickles
A small scoop of fruit salad
A brownie

Veggie chili
Ginger tea


If I have calories left for snack later (which I doubt looking at my lunch)  I’ll have an apple while watching TV 🙂

Today I should be training.  But its raining and quite frankly I’m not as hardcore as these ladies I saw yesterday


Wow. That’s dedication.  I hope to get there soon. 

But instead today I’ll just choose a workout DVD from my dusty stash and give it a run for its money 🙂

Day 2

Today is Day 2.  

It’s going rather well despite the fact that my head is splitting into two 🙂

Breakfast was:

1/2 c Old fashioned Oats, 3T Homemade Applesauce, 2T Dried Cherries and 1T Sliced Almonds (1C Hot Water) and Some Tazo Zen Tea.


Clearly not the prettiest bowl of oatmeal in the entire world, but it was in fact MIGHTY tasty.


Manischewitz Vegetable Soup (w/ Mushrooms) *2 servings*

*I love this soup because it comes in a little sleeve at the grocery for around $1-$2 and all you do is add water and cook for 2 hours and you have 5 small servings of soup*

a Colby Jack snack stick


15 oven roasted, unsalted almonds

***I was too hungry to bother with a picture — I promise to do better***


(2 Slices Nickles Split Top Wheat, 1T Peanut Butter, 1T Strawberry Preserves)


Moser Roth Chocolate Chili Bar


I had a meeting/class this evening so I needed to pack something that I could easily eat on the go.  What’s better than the occasional PB&J?


No snack today — I just Wasn’t Hungry.


9 glasses

(I’m counting my large bottle of tea in the AM as well)


No training today.  It’s a rest day.  THANK GOSH because I won’t get home from my day until after 10PM.

How was your day?

Do you see somewhere in my diet where I can make improvements?  I am ALL ABOUT constructive crititcism.

Thank you for taking the time to check in with me today.

I didn’t eat my chocolate bar.
But I did go to Tip Top after our meeting. I did good though. I ordered the red bean hummus appetizer and I ended up taking a little less than half home. 🙂
PS. That hummus was the best thing I’ve eaten in days. ….. So good
