Fresh Spinach…mm…

Yesterday was supposed to be a workout day, but I had to get a couple of quilt blocks done to be mailed out today. Priorities people?! lol. Today is another workout day, so not all is lost. I haven’t been real diligent in tracking my calories lately, but I know I haven’t eaten too many because I haven’t been eating as much as usual. Mike being sick threw a lot of things out of balance for me. One of which is cooking dinner. He preferred to eat soup, so I didn’t cook a whole lot. In fact, I skipped a meal here and there. I KNOW…not good. I’ve gotten better about it. I’m also going to try to track my calories from here on out.


I had to go to the post office today to mail out the aforementioned blocks. On the way back to the office I stopped at Kroger’s and got lunch.



I love spinach salads. The cheese kinda fell off in one clump, so it looks like it’s covered in cheese when it really wasn’t. I added some black olives, sunflower seeds, and jalapenos. Mmmm.mmm.good. I think my body was craving a good salad.


While there I also picked up one of my guilty pleasures. They didn’t have Oxygen, which I like quite a bit, but they did have Shape:



Funny enough, it has Chelsea Handler on the cover. She’s been popping up a lot lately in odd places.


Ok, back to work. I’ll be sure to update with today’s workout. Have a good one!


Lunch of the gods…

I brought my chicken and rice yesterday for lunch, but when lunch time rolled around I wasn’t really in the mood for it. I knew I’d be eating it for lunch, so I decided to go to Panera bread with my office mate Christa. Normally I get either the potatoe soup or the cream of chicken and wild rice. Today however, I decided to live on the edge and ordered their black bean soup. OMG…It was extremely tasty!

I bought this new iphone app called “ShakeitPhoto” that takes either an existing picture or a new picture and turns it into a polaroid. I think I’m hooked. It makes everything look really neat…somewhat stylized.

Like my pooch Ruby, AKA Rooster, Blunderbus, Rue, Rubyque, and Little Shit.

Or Codeman’s Saints Jersey…it all looks much more interesting through this program.

Anyway….my eating was pretty good yesterday. I had about a 500 calorie deficit! Yeehaw…I weighed myself today and I was around 222 (222.3 or something like that, can’t remember exactly). So, I guess it wasn’t all the salt’s fault. I need to start getting control over my weekends…next goal.

How was your Tuesday?!

Sunday with the Saints

I spent just about all day with friends on Sunday. We watched the Jets/Indianapolis game then watched the Saints/Vikings game. I didn’t have any alcoholic drinks which was good! However, I did eat too much salt which was evident in the scale this morning. I haven’t drunk enough water yet, so I’m working on that. I ate my chicken and rice today for lunch. The chicken was better than my last try! woohoo! I am going to weigh in again in the morning to see if it was indeed salt that caused the large gain on the scale.

Happy Monday y’all!

One little girl with a lonely goat heard…

Ok, so this post has nothing to do with the Sound of Music but I have that song stuck in head right now!

Even though I forgot to bring my lunch, I did ok. My office mate, Christa, and I went to Panera bread where I got the Cream of Chicken with Wild Rice soup. It wasn’t completely clean, but it wasn’t too terribly bad. In fact, it had lots of good veggies!

One of my goals this year was to transform my life. I want to be a better person, happier with myself and the world, and at peace. Sometimes you can get beaten down as the days go on, but it’s important to keep working on being who you want to be. Will Smith is probably one of my favorite Actors. Not necessarily because of his movies, although he has some good ones, but because of the person he is. He’s always collected and articulate. I came across this video and while it’s long and isn’t aimed at weight loss, it is definitely applicable to the struggles of eating healthy and living a “healthy” life.

Will Smith on life.
