Weekend Recap

What happens when you end up spending the whole weekend with friends….yup…social eating.  My weekend was filled with TONS of pizza, candy corn, brownies, cake, boba, cheese, and donuts.  (Although to be fair, about half of that was stress eating).  So let’s just say I woke up this morning feeling like something died in my stomach…eww.  So today was spent eating a lot of white rice, chicken broth, applesauce, and toast.  But that’s okay.  Tomorrow I will be 100% better and can get back on track.  I need to remember that being kind to my body will ALWAYS be better than how that donut or whole pizza tastes.

So, my planned workouts for the week are as follows:

Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
BC:  Spin Class

W: (10-10-10) + Blogilates

BC: 30 min. jog + Blogilates Calendar workout

W: Kron??

BC: 30 min. walk

W:  14 min. jog, TIU back to school (3X) and a Shape Mag. Workout

BC:  yoga (or walk/jog for 30 min.)

W: 30 min. cardio (5-20-5), Blogilates

No scheduled workout; will be walking all day

Hopefully I’ll be able to stick to it.

In other news….Taylor Swift’s album came out today!!! I love it!

and….Ed Sheeran is featured on the album too! (So excited!)

Hope you all have an awesomely awesome day 😀


Goodbye, 10th Doctor.

Last night I cried. My bf and I watched the last 2 episodes with the 10th Doctor, David Tennant.  I was fine, a bit sad, but not crying throughout both episodes.  Then at the end, I started crying, hard.  I love David Tennant.  He is a phenomenal actor.  He does a fantastic job as the 10th Doctor.  Honestly, I don’t see why he ever had to go.  I mean, I haven’t seen the Matt Smith episodes yet, so I can’t really judge the newer episodes.  But still.  *sigh*  The 10th Doctor will always be the best.

I found this video on youtube….it’s a perfect farewell to the best Doctor :’)



Today is going to be a bit weird (eating-wise).  So far I’ve eaten a lot of leftover Banana bread, strawberries, and some Bob’s Red Mill 10-cereal w/ strawberries.



Tonight is movie night! A few friends are coming over to watch Halloween movies and to keep it simple it’s a pizza and popcorn night.  (I’m going to try to eat less pizza than I normally do at these types of get-togethers.. *cough* 6 *cough* lol)

Did a good workout this morning: 35 min. cardio + misc. ab work

Also, back to David Tennant.  Last night I bought and watched twice (my sleep movie), David Tennant and Catherine Tate in Much Ado About Nothing stage performance.  (That’s right…lol)


Daily Dose of Motivation:

Are you a fan of Doctor Who?  If so, what did you think of that last episodes with the 10th Doctor?

It happens to everyone…

Tired…so so tired.  The last few days have been interesting.  For one thing, I didn’t know I could make it 4 days on 3-6 hrs of sleep each night and still be kinda functional. Although, I wasn’t able to work out (not good to stress your body if you didn’t get enough sleep by working out).  My diet was really good….up until yesterday.  I ate a LOT of food yesterday and today because I was so exhausted.  But the food I did eat was healthier food.  I didn’t have any junk.  (Also, it didn’t help that I was up at 4 AM and going until 11 PM).

You’ll notice (down below) I made Hungry Herbivore’s Pumpkin Bread.  I changed the recipe a bit.  Instead of brown sugar I used Raw Coconut Crystals (works perfectly!) and instead of using Whole Wheat Flour I used Whole Wheat Pastry Flour.  Next time I want to experiment using dates and bananas as sweeteners and also add chocolate chips, nuts, etc.  It was pretty good though!

What I ate Wednesday:

-Bob’s Red Mill 10-Grain Cereal w/ Strawberries + PB and Green Tea

-Blueberry Muffin Larabar + Orange Spiced Tea w/ Honey

-Quinoa + Corn + Spinach+ 2 heaping Tbsp of refried beans (herbamare and olive oil)

-Apple Turnover Uber Larabar

-Zen Bakery’s Cinnamon Raison Roll


-Which Wich sandwich: bean pattie, veggies, and hummus on wheat bread

Today, was kinda similar.  Still exhausted even though I slept 8-9 hrs last night (first time I’ve slept that long in a week).  Woke up feeling just like yesterday.

Today’s Eats:  

-Amande Raspberry Yogurt w/ Ezekiel Cereal

-1/2 PB&J Larabar

-4.5 pices of HH’s Pumpkin Bread

The Fitnessista’s Tofu Mexican Salad


-3/4 bag of Veggie Sticks

-a couple sips of Mother’s Market “Vampire” Veggie Juice

-Endangered Species Milk Chocolate Square

-(and I’m probably going to have some fruit from Yogurtland (with chocolate)

Some things I noticed today:

1- Mother’s Market’s veggie juices ALWAYS get rid of my headaches

2-  too many veggie sticks give me stomach aches

3-  Lack of Sleep (short-term and long-term)= hungover feeling=healthy eating goes to hell

4-  need to start eating more fruits as snacks instead of larabars, etc.

Tomorrow is a new day!  I will be back on track eating well and in moderation!  I will workout, do yoga, and be positive!

Have a great night!

Mmmm creamy

Today, I felt like I was hit by a train.  So much lack of sleep lately.   This is not good.  Going to go to sleep early tonight.  (Although I kind of have to wake up at 4;30 to take my friend to have surgery).  And tomorrow is going to be a very long day (probably won’t get to bed until after midnight).  But aside from the fact that I was a zombie all day, today was pretty good.


Stir-fry!  This one had: Sesame Oil, Olive Oil, Onions, Garlic, Seasoned Rice Vinegar and Shoyu marinated Extra Firm Tofu, Broccoli, Buckwheat Soba Noodles, Miso, Herbamare, and Furikake.  It was delicious.  It was like an asian fusion type meal.  (I’ll perfect the recipe before I post it)

After my nap, I had….

Beautiful Banana Dessert!  I actually got this recipe from my mom’s nutritionist.  Banana with honey (drizzled) and nuts.  Sooooo goooood!

After this I attempted to go to the gym for my HIIT workout.  Well, I was still so weak and exhausted that I could barely make it half way to the gym.  So I turned around and decided to go grocery shopping instead (my favorite thing to do!).

-2 packs of Organic Strawberries (Sale!)


-Blueberry Muffin Larabar (Sale!)

-Organic Endangered Species Chocolate

-3 organic apples (Sale!)

-1 head of organic Red Leaf Lettuce

-Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour

-Raw Coconut Crystals

-and dinner (a box with vegan mac n’ cheese and vegan fettuccine alfredo & a green juice)


That vegan pasta was AH-mazing!  Whenever Mother’s Market sells it, I grab a box of it.  Since I cut out dairy, one of the things I miss most are the creamy pasta dishes.  I used to eat a lot creamy vodka sauce, alfredo, creamy pesto, mac n’ cheese, etc.  These nut-based cream sauces were way better than some of the flour ones I’ve tasted in the past (never. again.)  I think sometime in the next week or two I’m going to try to make pasta with some sort of vegan cream sauce.   I am excited!  This is going to be fuuun!


Going to bed.

Hope everyone had a fabulous day!!

Yoga Withdrawal

Good Morning Afternoon!

I let myself sleep in until 8, even though I woke up (without my alarm) at 6:35.  I went on a 30 minute power walk before making some heart healthy oatmeal.  I am in complete yoga withdrawal.  I stopped going because I just don’t have time; but I think I’m going to have to start doing it again.  I definitely feel the difference in my body, especially today.  I am so sore and my muscles are very tight.  I might do a short yoga sesh before bed tonight.  Loads to do! So this will be a quick post.


Oatmeal: 1/2 c. of oats, 1/2 c. almond milk, 1/2 c. water, maca powder, vanilla, 1/2 banana, flax, cinnamon, and 1 tsp. of PB.  (I got lazy and grabbed a measuring cup :P)


COFFEE! (same vanilla nut latte as yesterday)


Apples w/ Cinnamon (one of my favs!)

(I also spent this morning experimenting with my real camera- not my phone lol…trying to get better quality pics on the blog)

Daily Dose of Motivation:

(more like something to think about..)

Have an awesome day!

Early Morning

I HATE Paranormal Activity.  I think I might have mentioned this before.  I thought I was fine last night, but oh no.  I couldn’t bring myself to turn off any of the lights.  I went to bed at 10:30, hoping to get a good night’s rest and wake up early.  I might have fallen asleep around 3-ish.  I hope this doesn’t last too long.  Looks like another coffee day!

Woke up at 6:30.  Went for my morning Booty Call (Tone It Up!) -30. min. walk.

Breakfast was delicious! I strayed from the usual (oatmeal) and had some of Bob’s Red Mill 10-grain hot cereal with 1/2 banana, 1/2 tsp of honey, flax, maca powder, unsweetened almond milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and 1 tsp of PB.

The next few weeks are going to be insane with school stuff.  So much to do.  It’s a bit overwhelming.  But, it’s got to get done.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Also, this song came on during my walk last night.  I thought it fit well with Felix Baumgartner‘s accomplishment.  Enjoy!
