I did it!

I baked muffins and they actually came out really good.

I used A Hodgson Mill whole wheat muffin mix as the base. I followed the directions on the box but added in chopped walnuts and 2 mashed bananas. 

I had one for dessert with a tiny bit of natural/organic pb.

Boy I had quite the appetite today. All healthy though...although I could have done without the pringles. oops

Good day

Today was a good day. I am feeling better. I am still very congested but I am better.
I took it easy and worked from home on my lap top. I drank plent of fluids, tea and water.

I completely forgot to take a picture of my lunch.
Lunch was a mozzarella cheese and spinach panini made on a whole wheat Arnold sandwich thin and Pacific Food tomato soup. This was very yummy and feeling. For an afternoon snack I had mango, a small nonfat latte and about 8 reduced fat pringles. Not all at the same time.

For dinner I decided to make a super healthy meal. I had salmon, roasted vegetables (carrots, broccoli, couliflower, onions, garlic, seasonings and olive oil). I also had a baked potato with some olive oil margarine. 

I plan on resting for the remainder of the evening and getting in my bed and under the covers  no later than 9pm.  I need to get to work tomorrow.

Biggest Loser is on tonight!

Another sick day

Morning! I decided to stay home today and work from here. I am still fighting this horrible head cold/ear infection and I thought it would be best to stay in. I am really a hot mess and not pleasant to be around with all my sneezing, coughing, blowing my nose. haha Sorry!

My plan for today is to rest as much as possible and  work from my laptop. 

I hope to make all my eats healthy today and nutrient dense so I can kick these germs out of my system!

Breakfast was a great bowl of banana/PB oats with tea, and OJ.
I can;t wait to receive my Barney Butter that I ordered last week. It should arrive tomorrow. I have never tried it before.

My workouts lately, well, have been non-existent. I need to get back on track. Maybe tomorrow am I will try to get in 20 minutes of light exercise. I wish I had a yoga DVD!

I will be back later. Have a good day.

Sick Day

I worked had a day in the office and half the day from home. I am still fighting this awful ear infection and virus. I am on antiobitics, which don't agree with my tummy, so I have to make sure I eat enough.

For breakfast I had OJ, and a whole wheat bagelful. I got hungry mid-morning so I had a Kashi Strawberry Cereal bar. On my way home from work around 1:30 I stopped at BK. yes, Burger King! Yikes! I never have fast food. I got a grilled chicken sandwich and fries. It was really good I have to say. Today was not a good fruit or veggie day, as a matter of fact, the last few days have not been horrible, but not great either. I need to get back to balanced meals.

Dinner was French Onion soup and fresh warm rolls with a little margarine. I made a salad but I just couldn't eat it. I was not feeling it at all tonight.

The french onion soup was made with Campbells Healthy Request Onion Soup, croutons and Part Skim Deli sliced mozzarella cheese.

Look at that cheesy goodness!  

So guys my wedding is only about 4 months!! Ahhhh I am not at my goal weight that I was hoping to be on my wedding day. I need to get back on track a.s.a.p. I plan on starting my workouts again on Weds am and keep it up through the weekend. I think I need one more rest day.

Have a goodnight!

Officially sick

So folks...I fought the battle all week, and lost! I am going to the doctor this am. I think this mild cold that I struggled with all week turned into an infection. I do not like taking prescriptions, but I think this calls for an antibiotic. I can not be out of work at all this week.

We went out for dinner with friends last night then for dessert! I felt exhausted and hardly had a voice. 

For dinner we went to the CrabHouse. I don;t have pics, but you are not missing much. It was terrible. I won't even do a re-cap. I had salmon. It wasn't cooked enough, it was cold, and the shrimp, with lump crabmeat and mushroom topping looked like mush! I didn't eat much. The service was also terrible. There were 10 of us at dinner. Maybe 3 people like their meals. Not good.

After dinner we went to a cute little cafe where we all had ice cream sundaes! This was better than dinner. Matt and I shared a Giradelli Brownie Hot Fudge Sundae with Vanilla Ice Cream. OMG! SOOOO Good!

Today's plan...doctor, grocery store for a few things, then home to do nothing! I need to rest.
Matt is home tomorrow so maybe he will be so kind to help with cleaning the house and laundry. I really need to just rest today.

Breakfast was a large glass of OJ, tea with honey, and egg and cheese on Arnold's whole wheat sandwich thin.

Have a great Sunday! Be back later.

Working working!

Good morning! Sorry all! I was really bad at blogging the past few days.  I will try my best to get better. Work has been crazy! I need to go into the office for a couple of hours this morning. I plan on hitting up the gym on my way home this afternoon.  I would recap my eats from the past few days, but I don't have pics so I don't want to bore you all.

I have had that "I feel like I'm getting sick" feeling now for about 3 days. It is so annoying but I think I sound worse than I actually feel.

Last night I went to Target for some household items/grocery items. I found a new oatmeal. Archer Farms, Blueberry Almond Instant Oatmeal. I liked what I saw on the ingredient list so I thought I would give it a try. I am very picky when it comes to instant oatmeal. I had a bowl this morning with a small glass of OJ and coffee.

The oatmeal had a nice taste to it, but was a bit too sweet for me. Next time I think I might add some plain oats to the mix before I cook them to lessen the sweetness and also bulk it up some more. I also added too much milk!

I ordered my first Barney Butter earlier this week! I bought 3 packages of the creamy 90 calorie individual packs and 1 jar of the crunchy. I am excited to taste it.

Well I better go get going..off the work I go!

Be back later. Hopefully after I get a good work out in. 

Have a great weekend!

I was in a funk day!

I was a bad blogger today! Sorry in advance for no pictures. Please don't give up on me or the blog. I promise to get better. haha
It has been one of those day. I was in a funk all day, mainly due do stress related to work. I have to be honest, my food intake was weak today. Not many whole grains, fruits or veggies.Ewww i just realized the only veggie I had today was the lettuce in my lunch burrito! That is BAD! Tomorrow WILL be better!

Today's eats:
Breakfast:  kashi oatmeal
snack- nuts/raisins/craisin mix
lunch- Chipotle grill.....chicken burrito with a few tortilla chips on the side
dinner-  low fat pancakes drizzled with a little light syrup and a perdue baked breaded chicken tender (weird combo!! I know.)

I told you...not sure what got into me! We all have off days...and today was defiantly an OFF day. I didn't make it to spin....again. I was at work until after 6:30pm and was stomach was weird this afternoon.

I am hoping to have a much better day tomorrow. I plan on getting in lots of good, wholesome food; grains, fruits, veggies, lean protein, lots of water AND a work out! My body needs it for sure.

I am going to relax and get myself out of this funk! I am watching the Biggest Loser.

Goodnight all!
