Ok, so right now I should not be blogging, but I have been neglecting this little page for a few days now so I am feeling a little guilty. 

I have been getting ready to leave for OKC tomorrow for Big girl’s Tae Kwan Do tournament!  Is she excited…?  Kind of.  She enjoys her classes and has fun, but gearing up for these tournaments are stressful and a lot of practice, so I think she’ll be happy when it’s over.   Baby girl is going to stay with B’s mom over the weekend while we are gone.  *snif*  I’ll miss her! 

But I have soooo much to do!  We have to go to the store for car snacks for the 3 hour drive, I need allergy meds!  OMG!  I need some Claritin Clear or something.  I already have eyesight issues and this crap in the air is making it intolerable!  Every 3 seconds it seems I am digging in my eyeballs (good visual huh?) trying to rinse the film off my contacts.  I know, don’t lecture me on why I just don’t wear my glasses.  I do…at home.

I want to say a big THANK YOU to Low…and behold!’s Kacy for hooking me up with some fantastic info on some local eats while we are in Oklahoma this weekend!  I can’t wait to try her recommendations!

I have been trying to use up the veggies in my fridge since we wont be home this weekend to eat them.  My lunches and dinners have all looked like this:

Huge salad!  Spinach, carrots, avocado, mushrooms, cucumber, tomato.

This hurried picture was my lunch yesterday.  My meal contained steamed broccoli and brussels.  Mustard to dip them in.  Carrots, and avocado.

Dinner one night this weeke was veggie pasta, and spicy turkey italian sausage otherwise known as Wacky Pasta around our house.  I topped it off with a fine load of veggies.  Should veggies and load be in the same sentence?  Let me ponder that one.

Pizza last night.  But I ENHANCED mine with a big bowl of spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, and carrots.

My breakfasts also were very fruity seeing as how I needed to eat up the fruit that would be left to spoil over the weekend.

The theme here?  Hodgson Mill’s Multi Grain Hot Cereal with Flaxseed.  I also used cinnamon, almond butter, and of course fruit!

Let me leave you with something that makes my day just that much better every time I use it.

HELLO KITTY plastic lunch box!  Toda it faithfully held Fage 0% and some cereal for crunching.

Yay!  I makes me smile every time!

Oh!  I was one of the lucky winners in What Kate Ate’s Sunshine Burger giveaway!  Can’t wait to get this coupon and check it out!  Thanks!

I hope all of your Friday’s are going well!  Mine is almost over so it is just fine. 

I worked out for 10 minutes on the elliptical and after a 2 minutes cool down I started on some weight training.  I did 10 reps of 10 2 times on a couple of machines I do not know the name of.  It left me with shaky arms, so hey I guess it worked huh?

Lunch followed with a Morningstar Farms veggie burger.  I used whole wheat sandwich thins and dressed with mustard and the typical veggies…with a bowl full of veggies on the side!

My afternoon snack was a Yoplait plain greek yogurt full of raisins and Fiber One Honey Clusters cereal.


Only a couple more hours to go till the weekend!  B has to help his Mom move tomorrow, but we are getting some of her furniture that she is not taking with her to the new place.  It’s a dresser, night stand, and TV stand for our room and a dresser and 2 night stands for one of the girls.  I have got to tackle getting their rooms cleaned up to make room!  Ugh, toys!!

Off to finish up my day!!

That’s how I feel about today.  Hello…Goodbye!  Where has the day gone?

This post is gonna be short so I can get on with some other things needing my attention this evening.  Dishes, ironing, lunch making for tomorrow.  I try to always make my lunch for the next day the night before.  I never really know what I want, so trying to make that decision at 6 o’clock in the morning makes it just that much harder.  Why struggle?


Same as yesterday!  Told you!

1/2 cup egg beaters

1/2 cup Fiber One

Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

B doesn’t like egg beaters.  Calls  ’em fake eggs and stuff.  He says they smell funny!!  What!  I don’t see it.

Well that means then I’m the only one who eats them so when it says “Use within 7 days of opening”  I have to do just that.  If I get into an oatmeal kick, I’ll forget about the eggs and I HATE to waste food.

Mid morning snack-age was once again a pear.  Ta-Da!

Served on the fancy linens.

Lunch today was a sliced smoked turkey wrap.  I used Oscar Meyer shaved smoked turkey.  45 calories per 6 slices.  I spread some LC cheese Garlic and Herb on the La Tortilla tortilla and laid down some lettuce leafs and rolled it up!  I added a healthy side of fresh broccoli, grape tomatoes, baby carrots, and black olives.  Mustard was used for dippage off camera.

A couple of hours after lunch I snacked on diced mango, and kiwi.  Tropical and tasty!  Believe it or not, this was the first time I’ve ever had fresh mango.  I really love all fruit,  so this was no exception!

Dinner was, well bad.  Really good in a bad, bad way.

Karate night + whiney baby not being happy at home + late night and a hungry Daddy equals =


I wont even picture it!  It was too grotesque! 😉

I will tell you though I had two slices and it was prepared in a hot oven by:

Yeah, uh-huh! Pizza-pizza baby!

My only redemption is I shred it up with Jillian’s 30 Day Shred though when I got home tonight.  I liked how she alternated the strength, cardio, and abs.  I don’t need to lose weight as much as I need to tone, and maintain so this is exactly what I’m looking for!  I’m excited to get into a routine with this.  It will just mean some early morning butt kicking on my part.

Until tomorrow!  Good night!

I feel so…out of shape!

I hope everybody’s week is moving right along.  My days have started earlier than normal lately.  I am trying to find time to fit in some excercise and I just got The Biggest Loser DVD Cardio Max.


OMG!  Maybe cause I haven’t been keeping up my physical activity lately, but I need a walker.  For real!  The kind with bright yellow tennis balls on the bottom please.  My legs are sooo sore!

I have been getting up at 4:45 to fit in about 20 minutes of level 2 and level 3 cardio.  I know it’s not much, but it’s better than nothing!  I can’t leave the house for a run at 5 am with B needing to leave for work early and the kids asleep.  It’s hard between Big Girl’s karate classes, and needing to be home with the family after work to then go off to the gym.  So home DVD work out it is.

I am waiting on Jillian’s 30 Day Shred to get here.  Iordered it today through Amazon.  I hear that one is the best one to try for a solid effective workout in a short amount of time.  I am defiantly excited to try it out and am looking forward to getting back into getting the physical fitness in there I enjoyed so much last year.  Time is short, and I need more that’s for sure!!

After my cardio session this morning I cooked up  a 1/2 cup of beaters and a bowl of Fiber One.  Probably one of my favorite combinations, and you may (probably will) see it tomorrow.

Mid morning snack was a lovely pear.  Oh so good.

Lunch was thrown together so quickly this morning for being short on what else?  Time!  I cut up some old-fashioned veggies including squash, cucumber, red bell pepper, baby carrot, and tomato.  I nuked a veggie patty and dipped it all in delicious red pepper hummus!  It turned out to be a fantastic lunch!

A couple of hours later I had my daily dose of calcium with vanilla flavored Chobani.  I mixed in some Yogi blueberry flax cereal.

I love, love, love the fact that I am starting to see peaches again!  I can – and might – eat a peach every single day this summer!  I had one this afternoon.

When I got home it was a mad dash to get the girls in the bath while B started dinner.  Remember our satellite went out last Saturday?  Yeah, it’s still out and we are rocking some fashionable rabbit ears on the 57 inch these days.  Well, no satellite means no DVR, which means…panic!  Just kidding, but The Biggest Loser came back on tonight and we didn’t want to miss too much.

Dinner was too good to rush through though.  It was Wacky Pasta night!

I added squash, black olives, red bell pepper, red pepper flakes for some pizzaz, and balsamic vinaigrette with a splash of lemon juice.  Like I said, it was really, really good!

After the girls went to bed (so I wouldn’t have to share) I made some microwaved baked cinnamon apple.

Well everyone, it’s time for me to get things ready for tomorrow.  Hope everyone has a great night!
