Hey Happy Tuesday! Did everyone watch The Bachelorette last night?? 🙂 I hope Kipton is the next Bachelor–I realllllly liked him, kinda sad she didn’t give him the last rose. They would have made a great match. (I’m sure you’ll start noticing that I’m a reality TV ADDICT) DORK!

Today was a great day! Tomorrow is Hump Day and…

Weekend 046

I came home to an AMAZING package from Late July! I can’t wait to try their organic snacks–I’ll post a review as soon as I have a taste. I have a feeling that I’m really going to enjoy them and even before tasting I already love what the company is all about…check em out!

Tonight was another successful gym trip! 🙂

  • Walked on Incline 6 min.
  • RAN 5 min.
  • Walked on Incline 10 min.
  • RAN 5 min.
  • Walked on Incline 5 min.

Did you see that? RAN! Yep that’s right! It feels so good to know that I can do it and that if I continue I’ll just get better and better–for sure not giving up on this one!

After my walk/run I did some free weights and some ab work–after the gym we headed to the store so I could stock up on ingredients for this

Hopefully it’s as good as it looks!

Now I’m going to go catch up on my DVR shows–what are some of your favorites? Any other reality TV addicts? 🙂

Can anyone help me? Trying to figure out how to add a link into a post–probably easy but obviously not for me!

I HAVE to say that I made one of my BEST green smoothies today!

Pasta Salad 001

In the mix:

  • A couple of handfuls of Spinach
  • Almond Milk
  • 1 Frozen Banana
  • Flax
  • 1 Kiwi

I think the thing that did it was the Kiwi–it was sweeter than usual and definitely quenched my thirst!

Pasta Salad 004 

After my green smoothie and before my trip to the gym I had a little pasta salad that The Boo made–twas delicious!

Pasta Salad 014

  • WW pasta
  • 3 cans tuna
  • 1 cut zucchini
  • 1/4 onion
  • a few carrots
  • Italian Dressing
  • 2-3 Tablespoons of mayo

It was a perfect pre-gym meal!

I think this might go in the lunchbox for work tomorrow! 🙂

So Colorful!


Isn’t it pretty? It’s the first salad I’ve actualy put a little effort into and the first one I’ve enjoyed this much!

I added:




Baby Tomatoes

1 small scoop of hummus

Sooooo good! 🙂 I can’t really say the same about my oatmeal cookies I tried to make last night–they turned out to be more like oatmeal balls. I’ll defintely have to go over that recipe again and see what I did wrong…they did still taste pretty good though!
