This whole week has been one with a lot of REPEATS! My breakfast Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday looked just like this one:


Yogurt, Strawberries, Banana, Blueberries, Mango & Kashi Mighty Bites

Lunch Tuesday was another one I’ve been having a lot (got to get through those Boca Burgers!). I added 1/4 smashed avocado with pepper instead of a slice of cheese and it was divine!


After scarfing down this burger, I went to check out some apartments on my lunch break. Saw one with lots of potential, then two awful ones! When I got back, I had my side salad drizzled in Catalina Free.


I also snacked on some popcorn (x2), but for some reason this gave me the worst stomach pains. Weird, right?


When I got out of work, I hit up the gym for a bit. I’m 4 for 4 this week! Then I drove over the hill to meet Katie Jo for dinner at Aroma in the Valley. I got my regular and all-time favorite, the tofu rice bowl! This meal was perfect for dinner yesterday and then lunch again today.Β  The serving is huge! You definitely can’t tell from the photo but this stuff is BOMB.


I peaced out of work early today for a doctor appointment and managed to avoid going back in — YES! I made it back home earlier than usual and settled down with a book and a snack. I’ve been trying to eat light (200 calories or less) snacks every day in the afternoon to keep my energy up for working out and keep my metabolism/brain functioning! Today I struck gold with a toasted sandwich thin, 1 tbsp Better N’ PB, and a few sliced strawberries.


I let my snack digest for a bit before heading to the gym. I was able to get there around the time I am usually leaving the office — sweet! My workout today was a bit of a struggle; I couldn’t seem to get my act together and felt clouded. Luckily I was able to hop on a bike for a bit and read the new SHAPE magazine to wind down, which definitely helped! Moving up my day also meant I had plenty of time to pick up a package at FedEx.

Okay, I have to confess…I LOVE FedEx. You know that feeling you get when something little happens and you feel warm and fuzzy and happy all over? That happens to me every single time I see a FedEx truck, sign, building, you name it. I still remember passing a huge depot with my mom and almost fainting with happiness (she thought I was insane). Now before you all think I am loco too, I studied lots of graphic design in college. Logos are my favorite! The FedEx logo contains a little arrow that’s formed between the E and the x. Check it out highlighted here!


Is that not genius? Subliminal, and fits perfectly with the company’s purpose — always moving! Anyway, so my trip to FedEx left me with a huge smile on my face. Oh yeah, I also received that boxed wine from Black Box Wines to test, so that might have had something to do with it too!

For dinner I had a Flat Out pizza for the first time! I saw these at that fancy pants grocery store near my work and had to pick them up. I have to say, I was bummed! I mean, YES, it was good, but for some reason I thought they would be much doughier and not so tortilla-tasting. I don’t know why, since they are wraps! Anyway, I think I will probably save these for the sammies and stick to real dough when I have my pizza cravings πŸ™‚


I also boiled an artichoke that I bought last week at the Farmer’s Market. I never had these growing up, but they are absolute staples in Cali!


For dessert I grabbed a small coconut Pinkberry and topped it with my own thangs from home — some sprinkles, strawberries, mango, and blueberries!


Now I am zonking out and hoping to get to bed at a reasonable hour. So ready for the weekend again πŸ™‚
