April 2009


I actually made some progress on my work today — always a good thing!!!  Breakfast was the usual :)

p1013177

For lunch, I heated up some Indian food that I cooked last night — Tasty Bite Punjab Eggplant with a serving of brown rice and a side of veggies.

p1013170

It was pretty good and sort of spicy. I got this at Fresh & Easy and it made 2 servings at 140ish calories each!!

p1013178

Of course, I went shopping on my lunch break and didn’t get back to the office to eat until 2 and I was WAY past the hungry point.  So right after I finished my lunch, I dug into my pre-workout snack — a chocolate mocha Fiber One bar.  This is the first time I’ve had this flavor and I wasn’t disappointed!  The PB is still my absolute favorite, but this one definitely gets second place.  The mocha was a great extra :)

p1013185

Orange you glad I painted my nails this fun shade??? HAHAHAHA, I’m so funny.

After work, I hit the gym for 60 minutes on the elliptical. I found some Fine Young Cannibals to rock out to on my iPod, old-schooL!!  For dinner, I made a quick salad with spinach, grape tomatoes, mushrooms, and Catalina free dressing to get something in my stomach before showering.

p1013181

After my shower, I cooked up a batch of black/kidney bean burgers.  1 cup of beans made 4 burgers, two for tonight and two for tomorrow.  They didn’t stick together all that well, but they still tasted good!  Especially drizzled with Bone Suckin’ Sauce.

p1013183

Right now I am watching last night’s Law & Order SVU while eating a little dessert. This cup of ice cream with 2 dried cantaloupe pieces is DEEElicious!

p1013188

Three Things for Wednesday

  1. Ate the lunch I brought from home instead of picking up food from a restaurant with everyone else (yes, my office eats out a lot!)
  2. Tricked my hungry tummy with a mug of tea instead of another snack before going to the gym
  3. Skipped the carb-y side with dinner

The weekend is almost here! It’s supposed to be warm again, so I am crossing my fingers for the beach! Anyone else planning to catch some rays?

This week feels like it’s off to a slow start! Work is dragging like whoa. Monday morning I woke up at 5 AM feeling sick and was up for a bit, but felt much better by the time I got into the office and dug into my yogurt mess.

p1013154

A little before noon, I had my Chocolate Chip Z-Bar from Saturday for some pre-workout fuel.

p1013163

Yup, I tried to make a gym stop during lunch on Monday!  I was able to hit the elliptical for 30 minutes, which was great, but I was racing back and forth between the office and the gym, and it still took me more than an hour.  So it looks like going to the gym during lunch isn’t going to work, but at least I gave it a try and found that out!

I took my really sore ankles and calves over to Coral Tree Cafe and treated myself to my favorite no-mayo tuna salad.

p1013155

After work, Kate came over with a nice bottle of red from TJ. I had a small glass of Cabernet Sauvignon while cooking up dinner.  Julia, Kate and I split a baked acorn squashed stuffed with 2 servings of quinoa cooked with raisins & figs, 2 chile lime chicken burgers and one beef burger.  We ended up only making two servings of everything, but it made more than enough food for all three of us.  The acorn squash turned out perfect!

p1013161

After dinner, we watched last week & last night’s Gossip Girl while eating dessert, which was a whole variety of treats.  I had some more s’more (haha) ice cream with one of Julia’s oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

p1013153

Plus a few slices of dried cantaloupe. I was way too stuffed after all this…definitely too many sweets!

p1013162

Three Things for Monday

  1. Attempted to workout at lunch
  2. Ordered salad dressing on the side & only used half
  3. Limited myself to one small glass of wine

If I am going to be totally honest with myself though (and with you!!), I think this was my worst day of “three things” thus far.  Aside from the salad dressing at lunch, I didn’t feel like I was making conscious healthy choices, especially when it came to dessert.  I gave all those snacks last night some serious consideration as I was eating them, but I ate too many sweets anyway.  I want to be able to name off three good choices every day without having to think long and hard about it, so I will definitely keep working on that :)

I woke up tired again today! Luckily another yogurt mess was there to the rescue. Today I added in some figs after enjoying them so much in my dinner last night.

p1013164

Lunch was a random mishmash of food I grabbed as I literally ran out the door.  It ended up being surprisingly delicious!  I had a serving of breaded eggplant, a nuked sweet potato, and a fuji apple.

p1013166

Lunch held me over pretty well actually! Around 3:30 I had a pre-workout snack of ak-mak crackers with hummus. I love that this combo is under 150 calories!

p1013167

Unfortunately, I was pretty hungry again by the time I hit the gym but I refrained from snacking and did 60 minutes on the elliptical. My ankles are feeling much better today, which makes working out a lot easier! I also had a new book with me, Queen of the Road by Doreen Orion, which helped the time pass quickly.

For dinner tonight, I was totally inspired by Kath’s calzones and decided to use one of my leftover dough balls from Sunday to make one.  I stuffed the homemade honey rosemary whole wheat dough with 1/4 cup sauce, 1/4 part skim shredded mozzarella cheese, basil, 3 chopped mushrooms and a big handful of spinach.  Here’s the calzone pre-folding…

p1013169

…and after baking!

p1013172

p1013174

This is the first time I have ever made a calzone and I think it turned out pretty great!  It’s weird how you can use the exact same ingredients you use to make a pizza, yet the end result seems to taste so much different. I also had a few veggies on the side.

p1013176

Three Things for Tuesday

  1. Passed on ordering in Chipotle at lunch
  2. Refrained from drinking diet soda (I usually don’t drink this at work, but I had a huge craving for it today but made myself drink tea instead)
  3. Had a small glass of milk instead of dessert before going to bed

Okay you guys, it’s LATE and I’m needing some sleep.  Will I ever get to bed before midnight??  Hmmm, let me go ponder that question while catching those zzzs.  By the way, thoughts on TBL?!?!

Saturday morning, I woke up way too early as usual, so I caught up on some TV while eating my yogurt mess.  I used another (#3 out of 4!!) of my Oikos coupons and tested the blueberry variety. It was good, but I liked the vanilla better, maybe since I am adding fruit myself anyway.  I am still crossing my fingers on finding the honey one! The Oikos makes for a much thicker yogurt base, can’t you tell?!

p10130711

After a relaxing morning of TV catch-up and packing for my night in Laguna, Becky picked me up and we headed over to the outlets.  On the way, we stopped into Whole Foods for some lunch goodies. I got an amazing mix of different quinoa and wheatberry salads, plus some veggies and pieces of pineapple. I ate every bite!

p1013072

I also ate about half of this piece of chicken for a protein boost. Whoa, I was STUFFED after all these goodies!

p10130741

Finally we made it to the outlets and started shopping for Becky’s upcoming move to NYC.  She leaves in just a few weeks (!!!) for the NY Teaching Fellows and wanted to get some gear for her new work environment.  The Southern California uniform of flip flops, yoga pants & tank probably won’t quite cut it there LOL. We found some AMAZING sales, and I ended up getting a very bright yellow skirt and an equally bright yellow top at Banana Republic. After walking around the mall for 4 hours or so, my still-full belly was asking for some froyo so we swung by Haagen-Dazs and I grabbed a cup of regular vanilla with rainbow sprinkles. This perfectly hit the spot!

p1013075

Tired but successful, we headed back to Becky’s place in Laguna…definitely stopping at Starbucks on the way for a skinny vanilla latte. Yummy and much needed!

p10130761

Back at Becky’s, we lazed around and waited for Julia to drive down after work and meet us for dinner. Becky and I talked about books (thanks again for slipping me The Red Tent!!) and drank her family’s signature Cosmo Lights.  Here’s mine chilling with some cute tabletop decorations!

drink

When Julia arrived in Laguna, we all scrambled to get ready and make it out to dinner before the kitchen closed. Why oh why am I always on the latest schedule?? We got to the restaurant maybe a few minute before ten and immediately ordered a bottle of champagne to celebrate Becky’s birthday. Cheers BeckY!!!!

p1013096

p1013085

Julia & I wanted to take Becky out for a special dinner to celebrate, so we went to K’ya, since Becky had never been there before and we thought it would be nice to do something different. Score!!! This restaurant was SO good. Everything was basically priced to share (served tapas-style and mostly $5 dishes), but the portions were way bigger than we expected!  This place was a real deal! The three of us shared everything below:

Three Cheese Macaroni — wild mushrooms, pesto, truffle crust, parmesan, gruyere & gorgonzola

p1013089

Bruschetta with hummus, grilled peppers, olives & capers

p1013091

Flash Fried Calamari with sweet & spicy thai glaze, bean sprouts, carrots, peanuts, cilantro & green onions (hands-down best calamari I have ever eaten!)

p1013092

An order of crispy sweet potato fries — some people (AHEM!) couldn’t wait for me to take a picture before testing these :)

p1013103

And then we each ordered our own mini burger to finish off the meal!

p1013107

Of course we couldn’t leave without some singing! Our waiter brought over a chocolate cake dessert with a candle and Becky tolerated our off-key, enthusiastic rendition of HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

p1013110

The three of us shared the warm chocolate cake, eaten along with bites of chilly ice cream.

p1013112

But the real star was the French Toast-style dessert. DELISH!!

p1013113

Here’s a picture of me with the birthday girl! Happy happy day Becky, we love you!

p1013095

After dinner, Julia cabbied it home and Becky and I went next door to The Sandpiper (apparently only people who don’t live in Laguna call it that, everyone else just says The Piper) and met up with Kate and one of her friends who was in town visiting along with her brother and two Italian cousins.  We all just danced the rest of the night away!  Around 1 AM I turned into a tired crazy lady and we all made our way home where I got into bed and crashed hard.

Julia & I were up with the sun so we could get back to LA before her 10 AM shift at work. We stopped by the Becky & Kate recommended Shirley’s for breakfast to-go.

p1013134

I got an amazing oat bran bagel with light cream cheese on the side. Everything I ate this weekend was seriously stellar!

p1013136

I also snagged a diet lemon Snapple. For some reason, I couldn’t even attempt coffee. Too early maybe?

p1013139

I got to take a nice little power nap when I got home, which was great and much needed. Afterwards, I spent the day cleaning, doing laundry, and being lazy. Around noon, I snacked on some frozen greens — peas and edamame.

p1013140

Since I had plenty of time to make lunch and didn’t get to do my pizza Friday this week, I decided to make some dough and roll out a mini pizza for lunch. I used the honey whole wheat recipe and separated it into 3 balls.  I rolled some fresh rosemary into the crust too, and 1/4 cup oats, for some extra taste and texture.  I topped the pizza with tomato basil hummus, mushrooms, more rosemary and sea salt.  Very basic and very good!

p1013141

The pizza kept me full for hours and hours. Dinner came in bits and pieces between 7-11. First, I had some red pepper slices.

p1013144

Then I had a chile lime chicken burger with a nice little swirl of ketchup.

p1013145

I could NOT think of what else I wanted to eat with this, but Julia finally saved the day by letting me steal a nice big bowl of her spaghetti squash.

p1013146

All my dinner items were eaten simply to get me to dessert. I had a huge craving for ice cream ALL day yesterday and decided to eat some after dinner instead of during the day (for me, that always turns into eating it ALL day).  I found a new slow churned limited edition flavor that I haven’t seen yet — S’mores — and just had to give it a try!

p1013151

This flavor has chocolate and toasted marshmallow light ice creams with pieces of marshmallow, graham crackers, and chocolate chips. It’s awesome!! If you like s’mores, I definitely recommend this one!

On a somewhat unrelated note, I read about Jenna @ Eat Live Run’s terrible loss this morning, and wanted to just put it out there to the universe that everyone is thinking of her and to please send some positive thoughts and vibes her way.

Hope everyone is having a great Monday! Hmm, is that an oxymoron?? :)

Almost forgot!

Three Things for Saturday

  1. Skipped the pizzas and pastas I was eyeing at WF in favor of the whole grain salads, veggies and protein
  2. Ordered non-fat froyo at Haagen-Dazs instead of ice cream
  3. Decided not to snack before going to dinner, ever though we didn’t eat until 10

Three Things for Sunday

  1. Ordered light cream cheese on the side and spread a pretty thin layer on my bagel
  2. Made my lunch pizza without any cheese
  3. Refrained from eating any of the homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies Julia was baking last night (smelled amazing though!!!)

Happy Belated Administrative Professionals Day!! That’s what we were shouting when we surprised the office managers with brunch Friday morning. Everyone brought in food and we had a little potluck.  I donated chocolate chip muffins, homemade by India Thursday night, to the table — thanks India!!  We got a huge jug of Starbucks coffee.  I had two cups and MAN that stuff is way stronger than what I make at home.  I was not wired at all but in a caffeine stupor.  I also had a bagel (just half is pictured here but I ate the whole thing!) with low-fat cream cheese, a slice of chocolate rugelach, and some apple slices & cubes of pineapple.  VERY FILLING!

p1013070

For lunch I brought my leftovers from last night. These burgers are great. This hummus is great. I love this meal!  Instead of sweet potato on the side, I sliced up some polenta and nuked it. It’s much better when baked/broiled, but it fit in my mini tupperware and was easy to make (two big lunch requirements LOL).

p1013071

I had this piece of rugelach x way too many more bites along with some apple slices and pineapple, making me lose the good food feeling I had after lunch.  The rugelach was absolutely delicious but I definitely overdid it with breaking off and eating too many pieces because I was FULL to the brim on sugar and it did not feel so good.

p1013074

Luckily Julia was home and wanted to go on a hike with me after work.  We hiked the hard side of the canyon going up, and ran down the middle paved trail. Man, one week break from exercise really does make a difference! I was huffing and puffing way more than usual. On the way home, we dropped into Coffee Bean and I got an iced coffee to help me power through the night!

Of course, we were running late as usual and got home at 8:30 still needing to shower, eat dinner and get ready to go to an 80s tribute show at 9:30, oops! I had a La Tortilla Factory tortilla stuffed with a TJ chile lime chicken burger and some tomato & basil hummus with broccoli on the side. These burgers have 19 grams of protein!

p1013076

By some crazy miracle (or because the boys knew we would be late and told us to come an hour earlier than the band went on LOL), we got to the bar before the show started.  The 80s band was awesome!! I wanted to hold onto the healthy mindset I had forced between eating all that pastry and going on a hike, so I stuck to diet coke at the bar. Surprisingly I don’t need a drink to dance at a bar, crazy, right?!

When I got home around 1 AM, I was pretty hungry so I poured maybe a cup, cup & a half of Kashi with some strawberries and caught up on The Office!

p1013079

Today I am headed to the outlets and then Laguna Beach for dinner with Becky.  Hope y’all are having a great weekend!

Three Things for Friday

  1. Walked to the canyon (adds about 4 miles round trip to the hike) instead of driving there
  2. Low calorie, high protein dinner
  3. Drank only diet coke at the bar

Clearly I didn’t get to the store last night for yogurt or kashi, because breakfast today was a packet of apple cinnamon low sugar oatmeal with a banana cut up and mixed in while cooking. The banana was decently ripe, so this bowl was especially fluffy and sweet!

oatmeal

For lunch, I had a side salad and the Chicken Pasta Pomodoro Kashi frozen meal.  I really wasn’t in love with this, but I do like the pasta a lot and the 19 grams of protein keep me full forever!

salad

kashi-pasta

My dinner tonight was awesome! I made black/kidney bean veggie burgers again and they totally ROCKED!!!  This time, I used black & kidney beans, mushrooms, red pepper slices, onion, basil, red pepper flakes, bread crumbs, egg white, and BBQ sauce.  I shaped 4 burgers so I still have some for lunch tomorrow!  I put the burgers on top of some lettuce and topped them with TJ tomato & basil hummus.  This combo is BOMB!! If you have never had hummus on your veggie burgers, do it now!  I also sliced and baked a sweet potato for the side.

p1013063

After dinner, I swung by India’s house to watch her show — it’s super funny!!  She also made my muffins for the office brunch tomorrow so I wouldn’t have to do it when I got home :)

For dessert, I had the other half of my froyo. Just as good the next day!

p1013068

I’d love to stay and chat for a bit, but I am so sleepy right now!!! Leaving you with my three things :)

Three Things for Thursday

  1. Got a Kashi frozen meal instead of the Amy’s I wanted to try because there was a lot less calories and much more protein in the Kashi
  2. Passed on the chocolate almond toffee one of our clients brought into work today
  3. Skipped the chocolate chip muffins at India’s house

I apologize right now for some of these pictures!! Apparently the rechargeable batteries I had no longer work, and I don’t have any other batteries lying around, so I had to use my cell phone. In a dim restaurant. Yes, they are crapola.

For breakfast, I had a lovely yogurt mess with some figs added for extra umph because I only had a tiny bit of kashi left to sprinkle in the mix! Must buy more ASAP!

yogurt

For lunch, we headed out to Bev Hills to celebrate L’s birthday (same one we had cake for yesterday). I got a very delicious grilled veggie & goat cheese sandwich. I ate half at the cafe and saved the other half to snack on at the office!

grilled-veggie-sandwich

For dessert our server brought out grilled nutella sandwiches with a candle so we could sing to the birthday girl, but I only had one bite. I love Nutella, but I was seriously full!  Back home after work, I snacked on an apple to tide me over until dinner. If this picture looks familiar, it’s because I had the same snack Friday when my camera was not broken…thought you guys deserved at least one good shot!

cimg4600

Julia and I went to the cast & crew screening of Bring It On: Fight to the Finish…Julia has a speaking part in the movie and she rocked!!!! GO ROOMIE!!!!  She is listed in the credits as Shoevite Girl because she gives the cheerleaders stiletto heels as invites to this big party.  Maybe I should start calling her that, what do you think Jules?!?  Haha, just kidding.  The movie was actually really cute tho and the dancing is sick!

We were ravenous by the time we got out and hit up Sushi Dan for some yummy treats. I love that I can get good sushi at 10 PM, thank goodness! We started with some hot sake thanks to our friend Brian who was bartending last night. Sake glasses are so cute :)

sake

We also had miso soup…

miso

…and edamame!

edamame

Sushi Dan has CRAZY sushi rolls, but I decided to stick to the classics and ordered a spicy tuna roll and a CA roll. Both were awesome, as usual. Again, seriously sorry about these pictures LOL.

spicy-tuna

ca-roll

After dinner, Julia and I hit up Yogurt Stop for a little froyo treat. Again, love that you can get froyo at 11:30 PM. What would I do without all these late night restaurant hours?! I had a mix of flavors with some sprinks.

ice-cream

Three Things for Wednesday:

  1. Ordered my sandwich w/o the basil garlic sauce (I really don’t mind going condiment free!)
  2. Only had one bite of dessert at lunch
  3. Split my froyo order in half and saved the rest for tonight

So I haven’t been to the gym in a WEEK and my body is kind of mad at me I think. I can’t go tonight but hopefully tomorrow since I won’t be going out until late! Hopefully I can score some batteries today too :)

Happy almost weekend everybody!!

By the way, DONUT GIVEAWAY at An Apple A Day!! YUMMERS!!

Thanks for all your great feedback on the event Saturday!! The rest of the weekend was very relaxing. I tried to sleep late but was up early anyway, so I relaxed for a bit with a cup of coffee.

cimg4729

Then I started getting a rumbly tummy, so I made the usual.

cimg4733

After getting ready for the day, I made a pit stop at Best Buy to drop off my camera. All the rest of my photos will be from the old camera I resurrected from a drawer in my bedroom. So glad that I am a pack rat!  I have the special charger for the batteries (yup, old school batteries) and the USB cable, whew!  After leaving my camera in the capable (hopefully!) hands of the Geek Squad, I hopped on the highway and headed down to Laguna Beach. I don’t have any pictures from Sunday because the camera batteries were charging at home, but believe me, it was an amazing day!

We are having a heat wave in CA and it was 95 degrees so of course we had to do a big beach trip. Laguna isn’t the closest beach by far, but Becky & Kate J (they are sisters, in case you were wondering!) hail from Laguna and their parents still live down there, making it the perfect place for beaching and having a big, family-style BBQ/beer pong/piano-playing food fest afterward.  On the way down to the beach, I got caught in some traffic but snacked on some strawberries that I so ingeniously thought to pack. For lunch, Becky and I traded halves of two delicious sandwiches — smoked salmon with cream cheese and grilled veggie with hummus & olive tapanade. MMM! Later I snuck 4 Sun Chips to crunch while reading Book Numero 2 in the Twilight series. Yup, 4…I am v. impressed by the brief appearance of my willpower!!

Back at the house, Chef Becky got cooking for the group…there were maybe 15 of us all together? We snacked on bread and cheese while everything was being marinated, mixed, boiled & baked.  The boys grilled chicken and turkey sausage, and I helped BeckO make a dreamy potato salad that was just red potatoes, balsamic vinegar, S&P, green onions, dill, cilantro & basil. It was delicious! She also cooked some beans and I made two chocolate cakes topped with some of Becky’s homemade icing.  Oh!! She also made the house drink, Cosmos, to go with our Coronas. It was a great night! I ate a little bit of everything we made, but was actually kind of full from the sun and the taste testing bites I took while cooking, so I didn’t over indulge in anything except maybe the bread when we first got home.

The weather stayed gorgeous all night, so of course none of us wanted to leave! I finally headed out around 11 PM and it was STILL hot enough to be outside in just our bathing suits and sundress cover ups…crazy!!

Three Things for Sunday

  1. Snacking on 4 Sun Chips instead of mindlessly munching from the bag
  2. Enjoying my Cosmo from a short glass, instead of a tall one
  3. Eating a few bites of chocolate cake instead of a big slice

Yesterday I was SO excited to be back at work of course. Kicked off the day with the usual good start!

p1013038

I was too tired last night to think about food, so I just swung by the grocery store and picked up a Lean Cuisine and some of those Green Giant Immunity Blend veggies.

p1013039

p1013040

By the end of the day, I basically felt like crud and just wanted to get home as fast as possible. I had every good intention of making myself some soup and buying some fresh Vitamin-C packed veggies to juice for a refreshing, throat-soothing pick-me-up, but by the time I got back to the apartment, I realized that my plan actually required having some energy in the first place, so I just raided the fridge instead. I started with this cool, soothing bowl of fruit.

p1013043

Followed by a cup of icy frozen peas.

p1013044

I was still sort of stuck on the idea of soup, but the 100 million degree heat in my apt changed my mind. Instead I made a super fast cold Mexican salad with lettuce blend, cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup cold black & kidney beans mixed, one 100 calorie Wholly Guacamole pack, and some salsa. On the side, I had a La Tortilla Factory tortilla spread with some of the guac.  I ate this outside becuase it was cooler out there than it was in my place!!

p1013047

I finished off dinner with a freezer-burned mango popsicle from Trader Joe’s. All I wanted was something cool and soothing! I love these TJ popsicles, especially the Caribbean ones!

p1013049

Three Things for Monday

  1. Going to the grocery store to get a Lean Cuisine & veggies instead of picking up food or ordering in
  2. Skipping the office latte run
  3. Eating a popsicle to soothe my throat instead of running out for some ice cream (which I seriously debated…being sick/tired won out!!)

Today I am feeling better but not awesome. I made the usual for breakfast. I am out of frozen fruit and almost done with my box of Kashi, oh no! I might have to make a grocery run today…

p1013050

For lunch, I finally got my soup! I had a bowl of Progresso Minestrone with a serving of ak-mak crackers on the side. Yum, it is much cooler in my office since we actually have AC here!!

p1013053

I have also been guzzling Emergen-C all day, so hopefully this stuff works its magic :)

p1013051

After lunch, we celebrated an office birthday with some ice cream cake. In my office, we all sing and then eat the cake together and chat, sort of a little break/bonding. I tried to be good by asking for a smaller slice. Some cake I could turn down completely, but not a chocolate peanut butter ice cream one! Ice cream cake is my absolute favorite. For some reason it did NOT sit well in my stomach though! I could feel my belly sloshing all over the place.

Once I got home, I decided to take a walk to Trader Joe’s to pick up some goodies for dinner. I am feeling better but not great, and this seemed like the best way to get some air and movement! Back home, I made a nice side salad with Catalina free dressing.

p1013055

I cooked up some Italian, TJ style. First, eggplant cutlets. These are great! About 170 calories per serving and SO tasty.  I also made 1 cup dry whole wheat and vegetable pasta blend. Delish!

p1013057

I also sipped on a bottle of Full Sail Pale Ale. I am not a big beer drinker, but for some reason, a cold beer sounded so amazing to me, and since you can get just one at TJ, I picked up this guy! I drank half with dinner.

pale-ale-cropped

For dessert, I grabbed some TJ Organic Soy Creamy Chocolate goodness. I wanted something cold but the freezer was seriously cleaned out!! Everyone must be thinking the same thing as me in all this heat. I had a few spoonfuls of this — pretty good!  I should have just put it in a bowl because my few bites definitely turned into at least a serving, oops.

p1013060

Right now I am watching TBL. Mike is about to talk to his dad…Can’t wait to see what happens!!

Three Things for Tuesday

  1. Brought healthy crackers for my soup instead of grabbing a roll
  2. Walked to the grocery store
  3. Drank 1/2 beer rather than the whole bottle
