My New Lifestyle

Hey Everyone! I just finished drinking a delicious smoothie and snacking on some Triscuits with hummus (so yummy and energizing!) and was inspired to write up a post. I am sure you all have been on the edge of your seats for a couple weeks waiting for my next post so I apologize for the delay 😉 I was really hoping to get something up sooner after my return to blogging post here, but alas, […]

Food Coma…

Ok, I think I’m just getting old and senile because I’m having a hard time remembering everything I eat. I should probably just write it down instead of trying to remember it the next day. Breakfast: I started out with 3 strawberry muffins that I made the night before and I enjoyed them while in class. I’ve started to not eat breakfast until after I leave the house. I’m not a morning person so it’s […]

What I Ate Wednesday, Told On Thursday

I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. This week is flying by! I don’t really have big plans for the weekend but I’m looking forward to relaxing. And maybe doing some homework/studying. And exercising! Ok, it won’t be that relaxing, but I won’t have any obligations =) Yesterday went… okay for me. I didn’t get around to exercising though. I got so lazy! Here’s what I ate: Breakfast: I was running late for work (shocker) so I […]

These Are My Confessions

I really am a terrible blogger. I come back temporarily and then leave again. Life happens. And sickness =( *cough cough* I finished the Vegan Challenge but not without a few cheat days. I hope to post the rest of it soon. It went well but I didn’t lose much weight and to be honest, I wasn’t very consistent with the workouts. I want to redo it but maybe not go as extreme as vegan.

Day Twelve ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 12 For breakfast I had a tasty bowl of oatmeal topped with pecans, dried cranberries, and a little bit of shredded coconut. Absolutely delightful. Lunch was made up of the leftover White Bean Salad with rice and balsamic vinaigrette. I also had a little bit of the Mediterranean Baked Tofu left from Day Eight. Still just as tasty! Dinner was a total bust. I was tired and lazy so I went the PB&J route. […]

Day Eleven ~ Vegan Challenge

I’m getting behind again! Here is day 11. Day 11 Daniel made me a beautiful salad for lunch. Can’t go wrong with some strawberries and blueberries! For dinner I followed yet another recipe from Melissa at My Whole Food Life. Easy White Bean Salad. It’s so refreshing! I liked it but I added some balsamic vinaigrette to the final product for some more tangy flavor. Now, get ready for this amazing dessert I had! I […]

Taking Care of Business

I realized something, the other day I completely forgot to update about my new goals for myself after mentioning my last goals a couple weeks ago. So my new goal is to reach 120 lbs by New Years. That gives me 5 weeks, though technically I started this goal right after my last one ended on Halloween, which gave me over 8 weeks.  Any progress? Not really. Here’s what has been happening: I went running […]

It’s a New Blog!

Ok, it’s not a new blog. But it is a new location. As in, I’ve switched over to the self-hosted world! So, hopefully I don’t lose all of my wonderful followers. WordPress is very vague on how my followers from wordpress.com can view my new wordpress.org site. But, if you’re reading this and want to continue to follow me, just to be safe, click my new follow button on the right side of the screen […]

Every song’s like new shoes, salads, cookin’ in the kitchen, running, exercise, this is healthy living..

We don’t care, we’re making pasta in our dreams! Oh, that’s not the lyrics to the Lorde song? My bad. So where has the time gone?! I think about you all every day! And my laziness. And the fact that I should blog more. And workout more. And that I’m a failure. Ok, I’m being a little melodramatic. But I seriously need to step up my game. Can anybody lend me their time management skills? […]

Making Two Meals out of One & Grocery Shopping on a Budget

When eating out, portion sizes are ridiculous! Sometimes I feel like I’ve barely made a dent in my mountain of food before I feel full. But that’s a good thing! Just take the rest home.  I used to feel obligated to eat as much as I could on my plate when eating out but now I’ve learned to stop when I’m not hungry anymore.  Plus, you get two meals for the price of one.  Most […]
