Today I love … my best friend

Happy Saturday. Today I’m hanging out with my best friend 🙂 She lives out of town and we don’t get to see each other that often. It’s her sister’s baby shower today and I’m crashing it to steal her away at the end. See you guys in a bit.

Peanut Style

Dinner was a chicken peanut stir-fry with ww couscous and a salad. I forgot to thaw the tofu to make it a tofu stir-fry, so I just went with the easy way. By the time I got to the BF’s to make dinner it was 8:30p and I’m used to eating like at 6:30p -Early Bird special style. Anyways, this was delicious. I actually got the idea for the peanut sauce recipe from Couch Cubicle 🙂 Dessert was some cookies warmed up in the micro to taste fresh baked
and some Mike and Ikes 🙂 It has been forever since I’ve had candy like this. I usually don’t waste my time on any candy except chocolate.

YAWN!

I caught Vegas mid yawn.

I found these at the 99cent store today and thought I’d give them a whirl. They are little cans of hummus. One is Sun Dried Tomato and the other is Spicy.
I also found these Simple Harvest granola bars too. Score! These are a lot more than $.99 at the regular store. I ate half of one on the way home and then the rest after lunch. They are very good and have pieces of what seems to be candied nuts stuck in them for sweetness. The nutritional profile is eh: 160 cals, 7g fat, 2g fiber, 3g protein. I like more fiber and protein for that many calories in a bar. Luna bars are only 20 cals more than these and have better numbers. But, if you want a granola bar these are a tasty option. Lunch was a ww wrap with turkey and guacamole. I also had some carrot coins with the spicy hummus I just bought. This hummus is not good, it was very bland. Boo. Hopefully the Sun Dried Tomato flavor will be better.

Dessert was another one of my new favorites – 72% chocolate. The world is a brighter, happier place when I eat these.
In the afternoon it was time to cut up my beast of a watermelon. I think this one was the biggest I’ve every bought. Here is a picture of all the watermelon I will consume in the next 48 hours give or take.

Happy Friday

Hi! Hope everyone is good 🙂 I started today with a 45 minute walk with the perros and some abs.

I stayed over my mom’s and made Matt breakfast. I made him a breakfast pizza. It’s eggs on the bottom for the “crust” and I topped it with spaghetti sauce and cheese.
My breakfast was oatmeal made with almond milk and bananas and topped with 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar and PB. I like the PB, but I almost think it would be really good without it. I like how the almond milk and naner makes the oats so creamy. PB makes it a little too heavy. But, it does make me super full!

Thursday Recap

After work I hung out with my friend Susan. We are trying to figure out what we’re going to do with our lives – serious business. I ate some grapes on the way. Here’s a a picture of the grapes for your viewing pleasure.

By the time I got home it was after 10pm and I was super hungry. I just wanted something super quick. I went with a quick can of chicken noodle soup and crackers.
I also made some guacamole (from the avocados in the backyard) and put it in a high fiber tortilla. It was amazing! I have the other half of the avocado for tomorrow. I’m already looking forward to it.
This waffle was super old and I meant to eat it earlier today, but didn’t because of all the crap I ate. I put it in the toaster, but it was super hard so I only ate 1/2 with a little PB.
Dessert was a Vita Top 🙂 I told myself I wasn’t going to order any more after I finished this shipment, but I love these things. Now I am super spoiled because I have them all the time. They are so good, but too expensive.
No, this was the real dessert. A Ghiradelli Intense Dark chocolate. This is some of the best chocolate I’ve ever had. My mom has a stash of these in the fridge, but I need to get a bag of these. They are so rich I am satisfied with just one.

STOP and PUT DOWN THE FOOD

There is something wrong with me. I have this set of things I eat and when I deviate from foods I’ve deemed as “okay” it completely ruins the rest of my day. I don’t know how to allow myself to eat healthy with a treat or a meal that is not healthy without completely throwing the whole day in the trash. This is a bad habit that comes from my all or nothing approach to food. I am either super healthy or say F-it and eat whatever even when I’m not hungry. Like I said before I need to start keeping track of my hunger levels before and after I eat. On a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being starving and 5 being stuffed.

Lunch was a big salad with a lot of veggies topped with a chickpea cutlet. I also had half a piece of bread that was leftover from another snack. I ran out of dressing so I put on extra ketchup.
I also had a couple of crackers with PB.
Then, the bread from the company breakfast was calling me. I had seen it yesterday and it looked so good. I am a major carb lover and I really wanted a piece of this bread. But, I wasn’t even hungry – I just ate lunch literally 2 minutes before. I was on a mission to have a piece of it and nothing could stop me because I was eating for reasons other than hunger. I ate the whole piece – which was 190 calories and the top of another 2 muffins. – So, it basically turned into a binge. Now I feel like shit. Sorry for the rant. That was lame. I am going to move on from here and not trash my whole day.

Ped Egg

I am the proud new owner of a Ped Egg!

The Ped Egg removes callouses and dead skin from your feet. I know it sounds gross, but this is flip flop season and we all want our feet to look decent! (Well, more than that I want my ass to look decent, but this is a more attainable goal.)

My friend Adriel has recently become obesessed with TV informercials. The Ped Egg is his latest discovery. He ordered it online and due to some zany, unbelievably good television offer (only available if you call right now) he got 2 for the price of 1! So, I scored the extra Ped Egg! Woo-woo! When you open it up it has a file that you rub on your feet. The bottom of the file comes off and catches all the dead skin so you can just trash it. (Just be sure to go up and down and not side to side.) It’s actually really cool – there is this white powder that collects in the bottom container. In some sick way it’s rewarding to see all the dead skin you took off. That is gross, but truthful.
Anyways, I was so excited about my new grooming toy I thought I’d try it right away. Here I am demonstrating how to use the Ped Egg. It seems there is some foot fetish co-worker who really enjoyed this demonstration – Adriel!
Thanks Adriel, my feet feel like a baby’s bottom because of you.
