What I Ate Wednesday: Real food again

After days of being sick, my stomach is FINALLY coming back to normal!!! I am also trying to get away from carbs. When I am sick, the things I find appetizing are zup, ice cream, and bread. This bug was bad news, I even lost my appetite completely. And that is NOT like me haha


Egg Pancake (2 egg + 1/2 banana) + Bacon and of course Coffee



Pork Tenderloin Sandwich, green beans and a leftover crab Rangoon


Jello for dessert



unpictured apple


Ribs and green beans


Cookie Dough Ice Cream for dessert 🙂


I am so happy the GI bug is gone, and now I just need to get some more fruits and veggies in there.

Question for you:

What do you like to have for dessert?

How do you get in your veggies

Tuesday Eats

I am back in the game! Even though all I wanted to do was stay in bed (and man I was grumpy today)

Instead, I headed to the gym for the 10:00 Muscle Works, but first I started with breakfast


With my favorite fella in the world


I really wanted to stay on track with the food I ate today, so here is my accountability!

Lunch: Pork tenderloin, cheese, and peppers


Snack: Apples and cheese while watching What Not To Wear (later cashews)


Dinner: Cauliflower pizza (recipe to come tomorrow!)


All in all, I had a great day, but I need a bit of an attitude adjustment

Question for you:

What is something you ate today?

What new recipe have you tried?



Weather, boys, and food

Sorry I have taken a few days off. It has been a stressful week. I haven’t been sleeping

and I am now not going to Kansas with Mr Flowers (long sad story)

Anyway, I started the day with a warm breakfast: 2 eggs, 1/2 cup pumpkin, cinnamon, 1/2tsp baking powder, and PB2 on top


I then took a short nap before yoga.

It does a body good 🙂

Lunch was simple: meatballs and carrots. With cashews for a snack (and two cookies.eek)

Then this happened!!!


Remember the spring weather on monday??? Nope. Winter is back!


Dinner was pork tenderloin with bacon and a sweet potato


Tomorrow, I’m not expecting to lose any weight. With no sleep, stress, and not the best eating. But, tomorrow is a new day 🙂

Question for you:

What is your favorite “warm” breakfast?

shopping :) and no gym :(

Saturday started off w/ pancakes. These things are that good, since I have had them several times this week! I also made some coffee

We then went shopping w/ my mom. I got a few things. With two new pairs of workout pants- I think I was more excited about those!!!

I defiantly needed new shoes…those are going in the trash

Andrew got a few things too

We finally got home for lunch! I did have three PB girl scout cookies on the way home. So I was surprised when I was craving a salad for lunch!Spinach, blueberries, cranraisins, feta, almond slices, sunflower seeds, and chicken

After lunch, we laid low to Andrew’s friend came over. They had pepperoni pizza puffs, I had a pork tenderloin, cheese, and blueberry sauce sandwich

I also started a new book, and I even found Andrew upstairs reading. I hope we can keep this up!

 I stared Crossed, which is the second book after Matched. Im already 100 pages in!!

I dont know if you noticed, but I didn’t make it to the gym today. And it totally bothered me. I wa going to go first thing this morning (before shoppng) but it was nice just to eat breakfast and chill w/ Andrew. I thought after shopping, Andrew was going to go to a friend’s I could go then. Well, his friend ended up coming to our house around 5pm. And my gym only has hours for day from 8-12 on saturdays. Darn it.

Although Andrew and I did play basketball, I still really missed the gym. (I know. dont freak out haha). Hopefully tomorrow, Andrew can hang out w/ my mom and dad for an hour, so I can go. No day care hours tomorrow at my gym 😦

Anyway, just had to vent about lack of hours at the gym. Now time to get to my book and then bed. Goodnight!

Question for you:

What are you doing this weekend?

Is everyone ready for swim suit season? Apparently all the stores are ready 😦

Friday Movie Night

Happy Friday!

The past two days, Andrew has been off school. There has been so many sick kids in St Louis, the some schools closed!! This so they could clean the school (hope it works!!!) But isn’t that crazy?!?! I don’t remember school ever closing like this when I was a kid. (Lucky)

Anyway, Andrew and I started the morning w/ breakfast and the gym. I hit the treadmill, my legs were still sore from wednesday! (I need to start running longer distances- I have a half marathon in 5 or so weeks….EEEEKKKK

When I got home, I also made some different coffee. Can’t wait till tomorrow to try it again, and I’ll remember to get a picture…..haha

Andrew also had a friend over. They had homemade mini pizzas for lunch w/ apples

I had left over pork tenderloin, blueberry sauce, and green beans. DELLLLICOUSSSS. w/ a ton of granola and dates for dessert

I noticed some EXTREMELY ripe bananas. The perfect excuse to try a new recipe!!! (to come tomorrow!)

We had dinner w/ my mom and Andrew, and then Andrew and I got in our PJs and watched The Smurf Movie.

 It was really cute!  Now time for bed- Good night!


Question for you:

Did anyone get any crazy storms this week?

-A tornado touched down about 3 hours from here, and then today I heard Ohio had some pretty rough storms. I hope everyone is ok!
