Cookies = My Kryptonite

I’m a little behind on my blogging! Saturday meals: Daniel and I went to the K-State Open House, an event where each college showcases their programs to the public. My main stop was the Grain Science Department, where I pretty much lived during my undergrad.  The Bakery Science Club always holds a huge bake sale so of course I had to hit that up! I hadn’t had their cookies in almost a year! I bought […]

Day Fifteen ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 15 For breakfast I opted for toast with peanut butter and banana slices and lunch was left over stir fry. The black bean veggie burgers were so good I had to make them again. They turned out delicious! I ate it with some ketchup and a side of steamed broccoli (my new favorite). For exercise I did the second day of the Five Day Workout Plan.  Afterwards I made sure to have another good […]

New Year, New Goals

I’ve been on a little unintentional blog hiatus lately. I didn’t mean to get so behind, but life happens. With the semester over, I’m proud to say I managed a 4.0 GPA for my first semester of grad school! Definitely proud of that, but it came at a price: a sore throat and a cough during finals week.  I’ve pretty much recovered except for a residual cough. I also survived the holidays. Ok, just one […]

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? […]

Pumpkin Patch

Our outdoorsy day took a little different turn than what I mentioned yesterday.  We did go on a great run. FOUR miles! Instead of running around the park the whole time we swung around it and then up a hill. It was tough and once we made it up the hill we had to walk a little.  We went two miles and then turned around and ran the same route back.  It was a nice […]

Back In Action

Wow. What a whirlwind week.  Let me recap: Ok, I failed at keeping track of my calories… however, I am losing weight! I think the last time I said my weight was here back on September 10th where I claimed I was 129 again.  Ok, realistically I was probably at 129.4 or something. But this morning I was at exactly 129.0 which I haven’t been in a loooonnnngggg time.  I hope to get down to 128 […]
