Ticks on Flea

Pat and I went to our favorite sandwich shop for lunch yesterday, Board and Brew

I had the California Delight:

 

Whole wheat wrap with turkey, cream cheese, sprouts and sunflower seeds. Very yummy, I only had half and ate the other half for lunch today.

Pat’s Double-Decker:

 

 

You think that’s enough sandwich for a man??

After lunch we decided to go on a hike which didn’t quite go as planned…

It was so beautiful outside:

 

We took Flea along with us, poor Bell had to stay behind because she wouldn’t have made it half a mile until she poops out

 

Flea is so ready to go! Pat needed to stretch first ūüėČ

 

He’s flexing for you guys hehe

The hike didn’t go quite as we expected it to…

 

The weeds were really tall and the trail was a bit overgrown…

We did a little trailblazing and immediately Flea was invested with ticks

ICKKK:

Flea was very cooperative as Pat began to flick the ticks off

 

I just stand and hold sunglasses on top of my head, I don’t dare go near those nasty little guys

 

So because of all the ticks we ended up heading home earlier than planned!

 

For dinner we went to T.G.I.F, this isn’t a place we would choose to go eat at but we had a gift card. My baby loves a free meal!

I wasn’t able to capture any pics of dinner but I got these off their website:

 

 

We also had a couple of bites of this:

 

Yes, I was obsessed!

 

I don’t know why but were watching E.T. right now

Do you see a resemblance?

A storm is brewin’

It has rained off and on today and now the wind has really picked up which makes this guy really nervous:

 

He likes to hide in corners when he gets scared.... poor guy

 

My lovely lunch:

 

Tooonaa

 

Yesterday when I hit up Albies (Albertsons) I picked up some dill relish so I thought I would give it a try today in my tuna salad. Almost the same as my original version: 1/4 cup tuna, 1/2 cup non-fat cottage cheese, 1/2 tablespoon relish and a little pepper.

Served on top of a sandwich thin of course! Alongside were steamed green beans drizzled with balsamic vinegar. It was a very filling lunch indeed, just how I like my meals.

 

After I got home from work I needed a little snacky-poo because my hunger was creepin’

So I finished off the other half of the naner from this morning, threw a few peanuts in my mouth and ate half of this:

 

Brownie Crunch Flavor

mmmm... chocolatey goodness

 

In case you couldn’t tell, this flavor is also really good but it didn’t top the peanut crunch flavor in my opinion

 

I had a special helper in the kitchen tonight:

 

Hi

 

She intently watched as I made one yummy dinner:

 

 

Sweet potato fries, broccoli and a turkey burger with a little chedd-ah cheese and relish on top.

Tastey!¬†Or I was just really hungry…

 

Dessert:

 

Why not just finish off the brownie crunch bar I had for a snack earlier? I think so!!

 

**Note to self: Don’t leave thinkThin wrappers sitting on the ottoman once done eating**

 

 

Or else some little monster will snatch it and run underneath the dining table making it nearly impossible for you to get it from her, but I have skills ūüėČ

 

"What? I'm not doing anything."

 

STELLLLLAAAAAA!!!

 

On another totally random note, I was looking through old pictures on my computer today and stumbled across this picture of me and one of my best friends from college. I almost fell off my chair laughing:

 

Yeah. We were that cool

 

I really hope those gang signs don’t offend anyone…

 

Peace Out!

85 Days to go…

Well this is my first post, here goes nothing!

**I would like to add a little disclaimer here that most of my pictures will be low quality, I don’t have an amazing camera but it does the job. It also doesn’t help that I’m not the most artistic person either. Lastly, yes I did graduate college but that doesn’t mean that my grammar will be flawless, there will be many mistakes, don’t judge.

Ok, back to my post…

This morning I woke up at 6 and thanks to the self-timer on my coffee maker my morning cup-a-joe was patiently waiting for me. Here is what my morning coffee looks like:

 

I love my big red mug

 

No creamer, no sugar, just straight up BLACK. This may gross some of you out, it’s definitely an acquired taste for sure. I feel that since I can enjoy drinking it black I don’t need the added calories of sugar or cream. I do enjoy¬†Coffeemate¬†French Vanilla creamer from time to time though.

By 6:50 I was out the door and on my way to an awesome run. I ran 5 miles in 47 minutes. I shaved three minutes off my usual time, I was pretty happy with myself. Now, for those avid runners out there this time may seem pathetic and slow, I know. Cut me some slack though, I just recently got back into my running groove.

I really pushed myself today, when I was getting really tired along the way I kept saying my new mantra “Wedding Dress, Wedding Dress, Wedding Dress” over and over. It helped! I know kinda crazy…

Once I was home¬† Pat was awake and eating his breakfast, of course I immediately¬†shared my good news about beating my running time. He was happy for me, he’s my biggest fan!

 

Ha! this pic will embarrass him

 

After doing some stretching (soooo important) I was ready to chow down on some breakfast.

On the menu today was oatmeal, with cinnamon, chia seeds and a little splash of vanilla almond milk. Alongside was one egg and one egg white scrambled:

 

This oatmeal might not look good but it's delish!

 

Can I just say how much I love eggs!

 

It was a nice tasty breakfast.

At around 10 or so my stomach was growling again, I had to give in so I decided a small snack couldn’t hurt. I poured myself some Kashi Go Lean Original¬†cereal, a spoonful of chia seeds and a little vanilla almond milk. I¬†like this cereal because it is high in protein and fiber¬†but low in sugar.

 

Eating cereal out of a mug is a little trick I use to help me with portion control. I find when pouring cereal into a bowl I end up getting carried away and pouring more than I should.

The snack was good but I was still missing something… oh maybe a spoonful of this will help:

 

Yum! That hit the spot

 

(Sorry for the blurry pics, see I told you!)

Today was kind-of-an early lunch but it had to be due to my work schedule. I wasn’t that hungry since I had a snack oh what an hour ago? ¬†But you gotta eat when you can!

I decided on leftovers for lunch. Whole wheat penne with creamy chicken and beets with balsamic on the side. Yes, beets!! Don’t knock em¬†till you try em, to me they taste like corn, a¬†much different texture than corn but to me that is how they taste. They are also pretty good for you so that’s an added perk.

 

Beets!

 

I have a really bad habit of craving something sweet after lunch and dinner. Instead of ripping open the box of cookies I settled for two bites of this banana.

 

B-A-N-A-N-A

 

It was such a beautiful day today, when I got in my car to head to the office I looked at the temp and yikes!

 

Is this an April Fool's Joke?

 

It was equally as nice yesterday and thankfully I was able to squeeze in an hour of this:

 

These white legs need some color!

 

So nice!

When I got home from work I wanted to take advantage of the weather so I took a walk, 1.25 miles nothing spectacular but it was nice. I would have taken my dogs but they have issues.

If you take Stella on a walk when it’s hot outside¬†she will¬†start¬†hyperventilating because she can’t breathe.¬†Then there’s¬†Flea, he¬†will pull your arm out of its socket chasing lizards.¬†Hence, why I opted for a pleasant walk alone; don’t worry the dogs entertain themselves.

 

Stella's face is priceless

 

After my walk I polished off my banana from earlier and also had a handful of unsalted peanuts

 

Peanuts!

 

Dinner was a home run tonight!

 

Check out this baby

 

Homemade pizza’s are my favorite, I like going out for pizza but I’m not really fond of the grease that comes along with it.

I paired this outstanding pizza with some roasted asparagus

 

Perfectly cooked

 

My plate

 

Yep, 3 pieces for me

 

You better bet I cleaned my plate. Afterward, I went and cut a little sliver of more pizza. I just couldn’t get enough…

Not soon after dinner my sweet tooth started aching, I couldn’t ignore it! That’s where these came in:

 

 

Just one

 

These are great

 

If you haven’t tried these Kashi cookies, you should. The are soft, chewy and chocolatey which is my favorite part.

Well that concludes my first post!

See ya tomorrow
