Bulking Up

October 25, 2010

My lunch, that is. I go through phases where I buy frozen meals for lunch at work. I am currently in the middle of one of them.  I learned a long long time ago, that unless I add extra veggies to those meals, they won’t last me long.  I’ve also learned to not eat out […]

Pimp my lunch

August 20, 2010

Lunch is so much more satisfying when it’s visually appealing. You eat first with your eyes, as they say. I go through periods where I find myself relying on frozen meals more than I’d like. One of the problems I have with them is that they just look so pitifully skimpy once you’ve heated up […]

Chicken, spinach, and Gouda sandwich bento

August 16, 2010

I decided it had been way too long since I used one of my collapsible sandwich bento boxes! The past few weeks I’ve been making sandwiches with “real” bread like sourdough and rye, as opposed to the “light” breads I usually eat.  There’s no denying the real stuff tastes better, but the calories do add […]

July 29, 2010

Well, well, well.  Look who finally showed up! I hope you guys are all doing well — I have lots of catching up to do in Blogville! Trying to get back into a routine, for eating, working out, and blogging. It feels good to have a schedule of some sort. I finally admitted to myself […]

Strong start!

July 12, 2010

I love it when Monday goes well — it seems to set the tone for the week. Breakfast was a no-brainer: It makes things so much easier when I have a go-to to-go breakfast! I made sure lunch was tasty so I wouldn’t be tempted to go out: These are actually lunch and afternoon snack […]

An eggs-ellent start

April 19, 2010

It is so much easier to fall out of a habit than to get into one. A little over a month ago, I was in a good groove with getting up early to exercise, photo-journaling my food, and blogging. I’m hoping I can get back to that soon! Before the eats, I have to share […]

Bento, deconstructed

March 29, 2010

Thanks again everyone for your supportive words the other day, they were a great comfort to me.  I think I’m in one of those funks and whining about my weight is the easiest thing to dump it on.  It’s a constant struggle and I’m tired of fighting it.  Anyway, I’m sure I’ll talk about it […]

Must be Monday . . .

February 22, 2010

Because I wish it was still the weekend!  We had the most gorgeous weather this weekend and I took full advantage of it — my legs are making me pay today!  I already wrote about how I attempted a Couch to 5K workout on Saturday.  Yesterday my legs were in agony but I couldn’t let […]

Lost in LOST

February 3, 2010

Okay, who else watched this last night?  I was intrigued, confused, excited, and sad all at the same time.  That’s all I’m going to say so that I don’t spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. First things first. Ameena of Fancy That, Fancy This had a fun giveaway last week.  She was […]

February Fool’s Day!

February 1, 2010

A high school friend of mine used to call February 1st “February Fool’s Day.”  I’m making this quick since I have to re-watch Season 5 of LOST and I still have 2 more discs to go.  Who’s the fool now? Morning workout:  30 minute WATP dvd Breakfast: Morningstar Italian Herb Chik patty on a sandwich […]
