Breakfast yesterday was a great yogurt mess since I finally stocked up on some goodies! This bowl had mango, strawberries, half banana, blueberries, and kashi. Yummers.

The rest of the day was filled with decadent treats. Lunch included two 50 cal La Tortilla Factory tortillas topped with part of a sweet corn tamale that I got at the Farmer’s Market, black/kidney bean mix, chopped green peppers and salsa. I love these tamales! I only used a little more than half though for both tortillas because I wanted to save room for dessert…

…a peanut butter chocolate cupcake from Crumbs!! One of the girls in my office brought back everyone their own cupcake. Mine had chocolate cake and PB cream cheese icing. Yup, it tasted just as good as it looks!

Of course, the gym was in order after this baby! Luckily I had my iPod and some new magazines so I was able to elliptical for 60 without getting bored. My arches have been hurting me lately, so I tried to make an effort to keep my feet flat on the elliptical. For some reason, I always want to do this machine on my toes?!

After the gym, I headed home for a quick dinner before going out.  I had some strawberries right before I hopped into the shower.

This fruit kicked in a craving for another yogurt mess (gasp!!) so that’s what I had. Is twice in one day weird?? Same as this morning…

Then I raced over to the Roxy to see Kate’s boyfriend play a show. I had a vodka soda and danced my butt off. Awkward self-photography ensued!

Julia and I got back to our place around midnight. Of course, the late hour and one drink triggered my snacking reflexes, even though I honestly wasn’t a bit hungry. As I got into bed, I had not one but TWO snacks…

…and a handful of Easter chocolate. Uhh…way to eat intuitively there Kate!!

Today I am going for Mexican at lunch with Steph (going to get the veggie/bean burrito again probably and lay off the chips!!!) and then to a Dodgers game after work!! I haven’t been to a baseball game since I lived in DC 2.5 years ago, so I’m pretty psyched!! Now I just have to get through work haha. Hope you all have a great Friday!

Today has been filled with some perfect food. For breakfast, I really wanted to repeat my strawberry shortcake but couldn’t let myself get away with eating cool whip (cool Hwhip for any Family Guy fans out there!!) so early in the morning so I decided to make a yogurt version. This bowl had vanilla yogurt, strawberries, fresh mango, frozen blueberries, and a biscuit broken up into pieces. Yes, it tasted as good as it looks!

After this bowl and some coffee, I did some cleaning around the house before hitting the gym for 60 minutes on the elliptical. On the way home, I stopped by Sprinkles for some cupcakes. Yup, told you I was gonna make it happen this weekend! By the time I got back to my apt, it was almost 3 PM and I couldn’t wait a second longer so I decided the cupcakes could be lunch too. This little brown box was literally burning a hole in my hand!!

I picked out two to taste test: dark chocolate (belgian dark chocolate cake with bittersweet chocolate frosting) and a St. Patrick’s Day special, green velvet (lucky light chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting). Here they are in all their glory!

First I tasted the green velvet. Will you look at that icing?!

Look at that bright green color! This was insanely good. I ate half and then moved on to the dark chocolate cuppycake…

Again, too good for words! I had half of this guy too. The icing on both was definitely the highlight for me. They were perfect paired with a big glass of milk. I’m full now but can’t wait to be un-full so I can eat the other halves. Cupcake mission was a success!!
