Typical Mexican Saturday


Ok day 2 and I think I can do this.

Things that I need to work on:

1) Taking better food pics
2) Background and blog title (not very creative)

Just had to drop my computer off at Best Buy since it is broken already and I’ve only had it a year. They said between 2 to 4 weeks, I’m hoping it’s more like 2.

Breakfast was delicious, especially since I didn’t make it

2 eggs omelet with cheese, spinach, turkey sausage and cheese

All that piled onto on a Arnold’s sandwich thin. Probably more calories then I needed but didn’t realize it until I added it all up. 

And of course there was a big mug of coffee to go along with it. I’m a little obsessed with coffee.

After breakfast the dog was walked and we ran a few errands. We went to Wegmans, which is probably one of the nicest grocery stores around upstate NY.

We escaped without too much junk food but I did snag a bag of pretzels. Whole wheat and oat pretzels from Snyder’s. Great pretzels for dipping!!


Salad with a black bean burger. Added some avocado this time. There was a debate about whether or not avocado’s are a fruit or veggies. I said fruit because it has a pit…who knows.

A serving of pretzels dipped in a lot of hummus.

Tyring to not eat anymore today since we are going out to dinner tonight.

We did Plyo from the P90x series. It was hard because I wa so so sore from yesterday’s work out. Check out Nero breaking a sweat.


Up All Night


So I was up all night for no reason. Occasionally insomnia or just too much caffeine. Yesterday I went to the store and bought a notebook to start a food journal. But then laying there in the dark thinking about everything under the sun, I thought why not finally start a blog. My boyfriend and I have been joking about it for months. I’m semi obsessed with other people’s food blogs but never quite got the courage for my own. What’s even better than a food journal for accountability but a blog that other people can see. This all started because I can’t seem to lose these 6 or 7 pounds that I have put on over the last year and it’s starting to make me a little crazy. It seems to be that whenever my weight crept up  a little I would eat a little better or work out a little harder and it would come off. But not this time. I can make all the excuses that “I’m getting older and my metabolism sucks now” or “I’m running more so my legs must have gotten bigger from that” or “the scale must be off’. But the truth is probably more likely due to what goes in my mouth and I know it. I could drone on in this post about all my past body issues and unhealthy eating habits that have caused me to lose and gain weight over the years but that is for another time. I’m just really excited to get this blog started to have some accountability. Wish me luck.


1/3c oats
1/4c oat bran
splash of milk
1 blob of peanut butter
drizzle of maple syrup

handfuls of:
almonds, cereal and grapes (I’m snowed in and bored so I’m snacking)


Salad with Black Bean burger
Piece of chocolate

After a long day or boredom my boyfriend came back and we got to cooking dinner. I did the supervising and filled up on some yummy beer. We split a couple of these. Troegs Dream Weaver Wheat Ale. Nice and wheaty just the way I like beer!

Got his Buckeyes shirt on to stay cold

Dinner was prepared by my favorite cook 🙂

1 piece of salmon
jasmine rice
steamed cauliflower and broccoli
spinach salad

Then to satisfy my sweet tooth I had a hot chocolate and 2 squares of chocolate
